Fabrication of Chiral Stationary Phases via Continuous Assembly of Polymers for Resolution of Enantiomers by Liquid Chromatography
(WILEY-V C H VERLAG GMBH, 2014-11-01)
Computational Modelling of Large Scale Phage Production Using a Two-Stage Batch Process
Cost effective and scalable methods for phage production are required to meet an increasing demand for phage, as an alternative to antibiotics. Computational models can assist the optimization of such production processes. ...
Hi-fidelity discrimination of isomiRs using G-quadruplex gatekeepers
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2017-11-16)
Core microRNA (miRNA) sequences exist as populations of variants called isomiRs made up of different lengths and nucleotide compositions. In particular, the short sequences of miRNA make single-base isomiR mismatches very ...
Automated framework to reconstruct 3D model of cardiac Z-disk: an image processing approach
The Z-disk or Z-line is located at the lateral borders of sarcomere, the fundamental unit of striated muscle. They provide mechanical stability and can boost contractility of cardiac myocytes. In this paper, we propose to ...
Formation and Degradation of Layer-by-Layer-Assembled Polyelectrolyte Polyrotaxane Capsules
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2013-06-18)
We report the preparation of degradable capsules via layer-by-layer assembly using polyelectrolyte (PE) polyrotaxanes (PRXs). The PRX capsules were prepared by the sequential deposition of PRXs onto silica particles followed ...
Dynamic forces between emulsified water drops coated with Poly-Glycerol-Poly-Ricinoleate (PGPR) in canola oil
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2018-05-01)
The dynamic collision of emulsified water drops in the presence of non-ionic surfactants plays a crucial role in many practical applications. Interaction force between water drops coated with non-ionic food grade surfactants ...
Pervaporation performance of crosslinked PVA membranes in the vicinity of the glass transition temperature
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2018-05-01)
Protected DNA strand displacement for enhanced single nucleotide discrimination in double-stranded DNA
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2015-03-04)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are a prime source of genetic diversity. Discriminating between different SNPs provides an enormous leap towards the better understanding of the uniqueness of biological systems. Here ...
Phenotypic and Functional Characterization of Peripheral Sensory Neurons derived from Human Embryonic Stem Cells
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2018-01-12)
The dorsal root ganglia (DRG) consist of a multitude of sensory neuronal subtypes that function to relay sensory stimuli, including temperature, pressure, pain and position to the central nervous system. Our knowledge of ...
Trophic effects of adipose-tissue-derived and bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells enhance cartilage generation by chondrocytes in co-culture.
AIMS: Combining mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and chondrocytes has great potential for cell-based cartilage repair. However, there is much debate regarding the mechanisms behind this concept. We aimed to clarify the ...
