Biocompatible, Biodegradable, and Electroactive Polyurethane-Urea Elastomers with Tunable Hydrophilicity for Skeletal Muscle Tissue Engineering.
Xi'an, China. In Acs Appl Mater Interfaces, Jan 2016
The chemical structure, thermal properties, surface morphology, and processability of the PUU copolymers were characterized by NMR, FT-IR, gel permeation chromatography (GPC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and solubility testing, respectively.
ALTERATIONS OF RBC MEMBRANE PROTEINS IN DIABETIC PATIENTS WITH AND WITHOUT PERIODONTITIS.
Tbilisi, Georgia. In Georgian Med News, Nov 2015
Reducing the negative charge (apparently caused by a decrease in the carring negative charge glycophorin C and band 3 protein content) and high molecular fraction (weight of 200, 116, 97, 55 kDa) proteins (due to a low content of Band 4.1, band 4.2, band 3 proteins, adducin and ankyrin, actively involved in the regulation of RBCs mechanical stability, deformability and shape) in RBCs membrane in patients with diabetes type-1 suffering from periodontitis, contributes to violation of RBC-RBC interactions as well disorders of their deformability and may induce adhesion of RBCs to the endothelium and disorders of blood circulation.
Arenavirus Quasispecies and Their Biological Implications.
Los Angeles, United States. In Curr Top Microbiol Immunol, Nov 2015
The S genomic RNA encodes the virus nucleoprotein (NP) and the precursor (GPC) of the virus surface glycoprotein that mediates virus receptor recognition and cell entry via endocytosis.
