Hi! My name is Nick Maley and I am a 6th grader at Whitehill School. I am part of the whitehill robotics team and as part of the First Lego League tournament we are trying to find solutions to e.coli in milk. We saw your article about your research on e.coli. and lytic protein, and we were wondering if you could inject the proteins right in the cow, and if that would get rid of the e.coli at the source? If we did that, would the lytic proteins stay in the cow and innoculate it, or would it be passed out of the cow?
Thanks in advance for your answer!

Hello Nick, The proteins would be destroyed by the cow’s immune system if injected into the cow. The best result would be in inject such a protein directly into the milk although we have done no studies to determine how long it will last in milk or even if it will work properly in milk.
