Phototriggered growth of crystalline Au structures in the presence of a DNA-surfactant complex.
Summary of "Phototriggered growth of crystalline Au structures in the presence of a DNA-surfactant complex."
A method for the preparation of complex anisotropic gold structures with potential uses in catalysis and photonics is presented based on the use of salmon sperm DNA and a photosensitizer to enable light triggered gold salt reduction.

Pulmonary Surfactant-associated Protein C
A pulmonary surfactant associated protein that plays a role in alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface. It is a membrane-bound protein that constitutes 1-2% of the pulmonary surfactant mass. Pulmonary surfactant-associated protein C is one of the most hydrophobic peptides yet isolated and contains an alpha-helical domain with a central poly-valine segment that binds to phospholipid bilayers.
Pulmonary Surfactant-associated Protein B
A pulmonary surfactant associated-protein that plays an essential role in alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface. Inherited deficiency of pulmonary surfactant-associated protein B is one cause of RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN.
Pulmonary Surfactant-associated Protein D
An abundant pulmonary surfactant-associated protein that binds to a variety of lung pathogens and enhances their opsinization and killing by phagocytic cells. Surfactant protein D contains a N-terminal collagen-like domain and a C-terminal lectin domain that are characteristic of members of the collectin family of proteins.
Pulmonary Surfactant-associated Protein A
An abundant pulmonary surfactant-associated protein that binds to a variety of lung pathogens, resulting in their opsinization. It also stimulates MACROPHAGES to undergo PHAGOCYTOSIS of microorganisms. Surfactant protein A contains a N-terminal collagen-like domain and a C-terminal lectin domain that are characteristic of members of the collectin family of proteins.
A group of atoms or molecules attached to other molecules or cellular structures and used in studying the properties of these molecules and structures. Radioactive DNA or RNA sequences are used in MOLECULAR GENETICS to detect the presence of a complementary sequence by NUCLEIC ACID HYBRIDIZATION.
We present a molecular dynamics simulation study of the crystal growth of methane hydrates in the presence of model silica (SiO(2)) surfaces. The crystal growth under apparent steady-state conditions...
Novel α-Fe(2)O(3) hollow polyhedra structures with single crystalline thin shells were synthesized by a facile one-pot template-free hydrothermal method, which exhibit high efficiency on the decolora...
Herein we report the surfactant-thermal method to prepare two novel one-dimensional mercury selenidostannates, [DBUH]2[Hg2Sn2Se6(Se2)] (1) and [DBUH]2[Hg2Sn2Se7] (2), where DBU = 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4....
Phase behavior and structural features were investigated for "complex salts", consisting of the cationic hexadecyltrimethylammonium (CTA) surfactant with polyacrylate (PA(n), n = 30 or 6000) counterio...
Salty water! Lithium salts (LiCl, LiNO(3) , and LiClO(4) ) at very high concentrations in water form lyotropic liquid crystalline (LLC) mesophases with a nonionic surfactant (10-lauryl ether) and disp...
The objective of this pilot study is to examine the feasibility and safety of performing a larger trial to assess outcomes following treatment of meconium aspiration syndrome with surfacta...
Study of an Extended-Release, Crystalline Formulation of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (ALTU-238) in Growth Hormone Deficient Adults to Determine Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Drug Safety
ALTU-238 is a long acting crystalline formulation of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) that is being developed for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency in adults and children....
Inherited deficiencies in any one of 3 genes (surfactant protein B, surfactant protein C, and ATP-binding cassette transporter A3) can cause neonatal respiratory distress syndrome by disru...
In this study, newborn babies with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), receiving oxygen via nasal CPAP, and needing surfactant treatment will be randomized to standard delivery of surfact...
The purpose of this study is to compare two different treatment strategies for RDS in preterm infants > 1500 grams and evaluate whether a selective surfactant administration would reduce t...
