  1. You discuss running a similar experiment using different compound. What different compounds would you use in future experiments?

  2. Do you think that lactoferrin could be more effective against a different strain of bacteria? Would it have to be similar to those that already displayed lactoferrin works?

    1. Great question! Yes, there is some research that claims Lactoferrin has been used effectively in past experiments when it is introduced to the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus. I and my group debated this question, if there were any structural reasons why Lactoferrin might be effective against Staphylococcus Aureus but not Salmonella Typhimurium. When looking into it, we discovered that Staphylococcus Aureus is a gram positive bacteria, whereas Salmonella Typhimurium is gram negative. We don’t know what impact this might have, but this along with any other structural differences between the two bacteria could possibly play a role in their susceptibility to Lactoferrin.

  3. What were some other compounds you considered before settling on lactoferrin?
