Caffeine-Addicted E.Coli May Lead to New Breakthroughs in Wastewater Decontamination and Pharmaceutical Bioproduction

FARMINGTON, Conn., April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Recent scientific findings from a synthetic biology study have created a new strand of E.coli bacteria. Why is this E.coli more special? It's "addicted" to caffeine. The new caffeine-addicted E.coli may lead to practical breakthroughs for wastewater decontamination and bioproduction of medications. Significant environmental pollution has resulted as a consequence of widespread use of caffeine and other methylxanthines in beverages and pharmaceuticals. The study further notes that addicted E.coli strains equipped with a new synthetic N-demethylation operon could be useful for reclaiming nutrient-rich byproducts of coffee bean processing and for cost-effective bioproduction of methylxanthine drugs. Other uses for caffeine-addicted E. coli include decaffeination and to measure caffeine content in beverages.


Effective and affordable technologies, such as the caffeine-addicted E.coli, are solving the most pressing problems in wastewater treatment and the by-products created from industrial processes. Discover more ongoing activities and developments in the water market sphere.
