Controlling assembly of helical polypeptides via PEGylation strategies
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-10-21)
Recent studies in our laboratories have demonstrated that a helical polypeptide (17H6), equipped with a histidine tag and a helical alanine-rich, glutamic-acid-containing domain, exhibits pH-responsive assembly behavior ...
Conformational and aggregation properties of a pegylated alanine-rich polypeptide
(American Chemical Society, 2011-06)
The conformational and aggregation behavior of PEG conjugates of an alanine-rich polypeptide (PEG-c17H6) were investigated and compared to that of the polypeptide equipped with a deca-histidine tag (17H6). These polypeptides ...
Zinc oxide and zinc hydroxide formation via aqueous precipitation: Effect of the preparation route and lysozyme addition
Aqueous precipitation products of Zn(NO3)2 and NaOH obtained by changing the method of combining the reactants and by using lysozyme as an additive were investigated. In the case of single addition method, octahedral ...
Dye adsorption behavior of Luffa cylindrica fibers
Using natural Luffa cylindrica fibers as adsorbent removal of methylene blue dye from aqueous solutions at different temperatures and dye concentrations was investigated in this study. Thermodynamics and kinetics of ...
PEG-peptide conjugate containing cathepsin B degradation unit as a doxorubicin carrier system
A drug delivery system (DDS) containing a cathepsin B degradable sequence and pH-responsive histidines was prepared by methoxypolyethylene glycol and peptide conjugation. Doxorubicin was attached to the carrier system using ...
Silver, zinc, and copper exchange in a Na-clinoptilolite and resulting effect on antibacterial activity
Ag+-Na+, Zn2+-Na+, and Cu2+-Na+ equilibria for clinoptilolite-rich mineral from Gördes (Western Anatolia) were investigated at 25 °C and 0.1 N total solution normality. While silver exchange was favorable over the whole ...
