Hey guys, fascinating project. I am in a protein engineering course right now, and you guys have inspired me to design a protocol for increasing the affinity of cellular retinol binding protein for vitamin A2 as my final project. The only problem is that I am having trouble finding a source for your statement that the transport proteins have a 4 fold higher affinity for A1 than A2. I haven't combed thoroughly through all your links, but I'm a bit pressed for time. Think you could point me in the right direction?

Hey guys! Really exciting project. I'm one of your fellow BME undergraduates, and had I not already committed myself to thesis work this summer I would have tried to be in there with you. I'm a huge fan of synthetic biology, and actually worked at J. Craig Venter Institute on a project related to biofules in summer 2013, so I'd love to geek out about it sometime. I'm helping to support you here because I'm really psyched about the idea of synthetic biofules and want to see you guys succeed. Just out of curiosity, is there some kind of meeting I could attend to get more info on the specifics of the project? Keep up the good work! -Alex
