Immobilization of myoglobin from horse skeletal muscle (Mb) and hemoglobin (Hb1) from Lucina pectinata in hydrophilic polymer networks for H2S biosensor application
Hemeproteins are known for their spectroscopic properties which change during the binding of specific ligands. This project envisioned the immobilization of myoglobin from horse skeletal muscle (Mb) and hemoglobin I from ...
Carboxymethylation of dextran for surface modification of magnetite nanoparticles
Magnetite nanoparticles are currently studied for biomedical applications such as MRI, drug delivery, and magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MHF). These applications require nanoparticles with a suitable coating which provides ...
Use of crosslinked hydrogels for the control of macromolecular crystallization
Crosslinked hydrogels in protein crystallization is an area of continuous growth. The counterdiffusion technique is a novel method for the crystallization of proteins, which entails the minimization of convection effects, ...
Encapsulation of particles in crosslinked hydrogel networks: particles distribution optimization
Particle encapsulation in polymer systems has been used in several industrial applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields. The main challenge in particle encapsulation is to obtain a homogeneous particle ...
Design of composite protein microcrystals for the sustained oral delivery of antigens
Oral immunization is a promising method to decrease access of allergens and pathogens to the body. Oral delivery of antigens is challenged by the anatomical conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, such as degradation by ...
Assessment of the stability and biological activity of our model proteins encapsulated in hydrogel membranes
Proteins are biological macromolecules which have a unique spatial conformation. This spatial conformation can be affected by extremes in pH, temperature, and organic solvents. Once this 3D spatial conformation is affected ...
