Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Randy S Fisher
Award Amount: $50,000.00

ENZYME-TARGETED ANTIMICROBIALS FOR PLANT DISEASE CONTROL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Randy S Fisher
Award Amount: $205,000.00
Abstract:
No microbiocide is available tht is effective against such major phytopathogens as species of xanthomonas, erwinia and pseudomonas syringae. these prokaryote pathogens possess a biochemica pathway for biosynthesis of amino acids that con-tains enzymes which have ideal potential as targets for… More

UNIQUE ENZYME TARGETS FOR GONOCOCCAL ANTIMETABOLITES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Randy S Fischer , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The ability of neisseria gonorrnoeae to metabolize lactate derived from host neutrophils has been impiicited in a pathogenic mechanism that favors oxygen consumption by gonococci and reduces the ability of phagocytes to produce superoxide. a membrane-bound lactate dehydrogenase (ildh) and soluble… More

COST-EFFICIENT PREPARATION OF L-AROGENATE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Randy S , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00

COST-EFFICIENT PREPARATION OF L-AROGENATE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Randy S , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $237,643.00
Abstract:
The amino acid, l-arogenate, is widely utilized by both microorganisms and higher plants as a precursor of l-phenylalanine and l-tyrosine. it is of increasing importance in both basic university-sponsored research and in applied research within industry to have access to l-arogenate as a substrate… More

Multi-target Control of Staphylococcus and Enterococcus

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Randy Fischer
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
No class of antibiotic is completely effective against infections caused by species ofStaphylococcus and Enterococcus. Increasing incidence of multiple drug resistance among thestaphylococci and enterococci, as well as escalating nosocomial infection rates, complicates treatmentof severe infections.… More
