Scientists working with Marina Rodnina, head of the Physical Biochemistry Department at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, have now discovered a promising target for a new generation of antibiotics: a bacterial protein called elongation factor P (EF-P).
This study provides evidence for the first time that SEY contains higher levels of Pyruvate Kinase, HSP70 and Elongation factor 2 and lower levels of Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 5A-2 and Triosephosphafe (somerase than those found in RY.
Then they began experimenting with dual-phase steel and found that its properties are well-suited to their purposes: it allows for thinner walls and lower weight; it has a high elongation factor which gives better formability; and it offers a greater spread between yield strength and tensile strength, so that it will bend easily in deep draw dies without breaking.
The Roleez wheel has tires made of soft, pliable polyurethane, which are said to offer a tensile strength of 900 lbs/in [2] and an elongation factor of 425%.
