Our project may suggest some useful ideas about varying applications that may be very crucial in the future.

For our Limulus anti lipopolysaccharide factor protein (LALF); some idea suggestions can be enumerated as:

  1. Alternative surface sterilization technique; in case of applying on surfaces, LALF protein can work like a new sterilization material like gluteraldehyte or alcohol that are commonly used for hospital and lab sterilization.
  2. Alternative cure for septic shock; after gram negative bacterial infections; LPS, which is the main component of cell wall of gram negative bacteria, can cause deathly conditions that is generally called “septic shock”. In our project, our LALF protein binds this material strictly, thus LALF can be used as an alternative cure method for such condition.
  3. Possible new structure of antibiotic-like drug; antibiotics commonly effect on production of cell wall of bacteria. This is done by inhibiting the source of production. On the other hand, our LALF protein directly binds the cell wall material and stops the bacteria growth. Thus, a new antibiotic like drug made of LALF may be produced and used in some infections.
  4. Possibility of producing longtime sterile layers; if any kind of object is produced by covering with LALF, that object can stay sterile for long time because of gram negative bacteria protection of LALF. In case of a possible infection on surface, LALF will stop bacteria growth.
  5. Alternative cure method for bacterial diseases; diseases like urinary system infection or gastritis are caused by gram negative bacteria. In the course of applying our bacteria that produce LALF in the infectious cite, infection of harmful bacteria can be prevented or stopped. This may suggest an alternative cure for such diseases.

On the other hand, our secondary protein, reflectin, can be used in varying applications.

  1. Camouflage material; this protein allows its host, cephalopod, to hide when cephalopod hunts or to defend itself from its hunters. In the course of development of reflectin protein, a new camouflage material may be produced for humans.
