Bioactive Molecules

Nature is plentiful of molecules that influence cell and tissue behavior by their particular structure or functional groups. Most of those molecules are found in living organisms, produced by the secondary metabolism of plants, bacteria and fungi. We have elected three of these molecules for our studies: violacein, aloin and acemannan. The first is a purple pigment produced by the genus Chromobacterium; the second and third are an antraquinone and a polysaccharide, respectively, produced the popular plant Aloe vera. We are investigating the integration of these bioactive molecules with biopolymers such as bacterial cellulose and polyhydroxybutyrate.
