The project is on the discovery of a new antibiotic compound, Phomopsidione that showed significant inhibitory activity on several Gram negative bacteria, particularly Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The compound is able to reduce the amount of toxins produced by the bacterium, by influencing the synthesis of outer membrane proteins.
The annual international exhibition was participated by over 500 participants this year. MTE 2020 provided a one stop platform for inventors, designers and entrepreneurs to showcase their latest inventions, ideas, prototypes, products and designs to investors, manufacturers, distributors and marketers in Asia and beyond, paving the way to connect them with those who are seeking new ideas, as well as technology commercialisation and collaboration.
