    • Biomineralization of calcium phosphate crystals controlled by protein-protein interactions 

      Duman, Elif; Şahin-Kehribar, Ebru; Ahan, Recep Erdem; Yuca, Esra; Şeker, Urartu Özgür Şafak (American Chemical Society, 2019)
      Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is the major biomineral of bone. Despite the large number of studies addressing HAP formation, a fundamental understanding of the critical roles of HAP-forming proteins in vitro is needed. Effects of ...
    • Cellular biocatalysts using synthetic genetic circuits for prolonged and durable enzymatic activity 

      Ahan, Recep Erdem; Şaltepe, Behide; Apaydın, Onur; Şeker, Urartu Özgür Şafak (Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, 2019)
      Cellular biocatalysts hold great promise for the synthesis of difficult to achieve compounds, such as complex active molecules. Whole‐cell biocatalysts can be programmed through genetic circuits to be more efficient, but ...
    • Genetic logic gates enable patterning of amyloid nanofibers 

      Kalyoncu, Ebuzer; Ahan, Recep Erdem; Özçelik, Cemile Elif; Şeker, Urartu Özgür Şafak (WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, 2019)
      Distinct spatial patterning of naturally produced materials is observed in many cellular structures and even among communities of microorganisms. Reoccurrence of spatially organized materials in all branches of life is ...
    • A self-actuated cellular protein delivery machine 

      Ahan, Recep Erdem; Kırpat, Büşra Merve; Saltepe, Behide; Şeker, Urartu Özgür Şafak (American Chemical Society, 2019)
      Engineered bacterial cells have great promise to solve global problems, yet they are hampered by a lack of convenient strategy for controlled protein release. A well-controlled protein translocation through cellular membranes ...
    • A self-actuated cellular protein delivery machinery 

      Ahan, Recep Erdem (Bilkent University, 2018-08)
      Owing to increase the knowledge on biology and available tools for genetic manipulations, biological systems are engineered to perform complex tasks. They can be designed to degrade toxic molecules in environment, produce ...
    • A sustainable preparation of catalytically active and antibacterial cellulose metal nanocomposites via ball milling of cellulose 

      Kwiczak-Yiğitbaşı, Joanna; Laçin, Özge; Demir, Mine; Ahan, Recep Erdem; Şeker, Urartu Özgür Şafak; Baytekin, Bilge (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020-01)
      Cellulose, the most abundant polymer on Earth, and its composites have recently gained importance for the production of sustainable materials. These materials should be produced using green methods that avoid the utilization ...
    • Ultrasonication for environmentally friendly preparation of antimicrobial and catalytically active nanocomposites of cellulosic textiles 

      Kwiczak-Yiǧitbaşı, Joanna; Demir, Mine; Ahan, Recep Erdem; Canlı, S.; Şafak Şeker, Urartu Özgür; Baytekin, Bilge (American Chemical Society, 2020)
      The global demand for sustainable and functional fibers and textile materials is increasing with the pressure to limit the synthetic petroleum-based counterparts. In this study, we use ultrasonication for the preparation ...
