The goal of this study was to reveal how the chemical modification, succinylation in this case, of the wide-pore serum-albumin-based cryogels affects on their osmotic characteristics (swelling extent), biodegradability and ability to be loaded with the bactericide substance - dioxidine, as well as on its release. The cryogels were prepared via the cryogenic processing (freezing - frozen storage - thawing) of aqueous solutions containing bovine serum albumin (50 g/L), denaturant (urea or guanidine hydrochloride, 1.0 mol/L) and reductant (cysteine, 0.01 mol/L). Freezing/frozen storage temperatures were either -15, or -20, or -25 °C. After defrosting, spongy cryogels were obtained that possessed the system of interconnected gross pores, whose shape and dimensions were dependent on the freezing temperature and on the type of denaturant introduced in the feed solution. Subsequent succinylation of the resultant cryogels caused the growth of the swelling degree of the pore walls of these spongy materials, resulted in strengthening of their resistance against of trypsinolysis and gave rise to an increase in their loading capacity with respect to dioxidine. With that, the microbiological tests showed a higher bactericidal activity of th...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
