Radio-synthesized protein-based nanoparticles for biomedical purposes
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-01-01)
Protein-crosslinking whether done by enzymatic or chemically induced pathways increases the overall stability of proteins. in the continuous search for alternative routes for protein stabilization we report a novel technique ...
Arginine methylation and binding of Hrp1p to the efficiency element for mRNA 3'-end formation
Hrp1p is a heterogeneous ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae that is involved in the cleavage and polyadenylation of the 3'-end of mRNAs and mRNA export. In addition, Hrp1p is one of several ...
Corneal Absorption of a New Riboflavin-Nanostructured System for Transepithelial Collagen Cross-Linking
Corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) has been described as a promising therapy for keratoconus. According to standard CXL protocol, epithelium should be debrided before treatment to allow penetration of riboflavin into the ...
Effect of phosphoric acid on the degradation of human dentin matrix
This study determined if dentin proteases are denatured by phosphoric acid (PA) used in etch-and-rinse dentin adhesives. Dentin beams were completely demineralized with EDTA for 30 days. We acid-etched experimental groups ...
Bacterial cellulose-collagen nanocomposite for bone tissue engineering
(Royal Soc Chemistry, 2012-11-07)
A nanocomposite based on bacterial cellulose (BC) and type I collagen (COL) was evaluated for in vitro bone regeneration. BC membranes were modified by glycine esterification followed by cross-linking of type I collagen ...

High hydrostatic pressure processing on microstructure of probiotic low-fat yogurt
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-01-01)
The effect of milk processing on the microstructure of probiotic low-fat yogurt was studied. Skim milk fortified with skim milk powder was subjected to three treatments prior to innoculation: thermal treatment at 85 degrees ...
Circulating Sclerostin in Disorders of Parathyroid Gland Function
(Endocrine Soc, 2011-12-01)
Context: Sclerostin, a protein encoded by the SOST gene in osteocytes and an antagonist of the Wnt signaling pathway, is down-regulated by PTH administration. Disorders of parathyroid function are useful clinical settings ...
Crystal structure of a novel myotoxic Arg49 phospholipase A(2) homolog (zhaoermiatoxin) from Zhaoermia mangshanensis snake venom: Insights into Arg49 coordination and the role of Lys122 in the polarization of the C-terminus
(Pergamon-Elsevier B.V. Ltd, 2008-04-01)
The venom of Zhaoermia mangshanensis, encountered solely in Mt Mang in China's Hunan Province, exhibits coagulant, phosphodiesterase, L-amino acid oxidase, kallikrein, phospholipase A(2) and myotoxic activities. The ...
