Structural transformations of polycomplex matrices based on countercharged (meth)acrylate copolymers.
Summary of "Structural transformations of polycomplex matrices based on countercharged (meth)acrylate copolymers."
With a view to the application in oral controlled drug delivery systems (DDS), the design of new interpolyelectrolyte complexes (IPECs) between countercharged types of Eudragit(R) EPO (EPO) and Eudragit(R) L 100-55 (L100-55) was investigated. The formation and composition of four new IPECs between EPO and L100-55 were established by elementary analysis. The structure of the synthesized IPEC was investigated using FTIR spectroscopy and modulated-temperature differential scanning calorimetry. The binding ratio of a unit molecule of EPO with L100-55 was found to range between 1:2.75 (Z = 0.36) and 1:0.55 (Z = 1.81) while increasing the pH value from 5.5 to 7.0. As a result of electrostatic interaction between the copolymer chains, the glass transition temperature of the IPEC increased significantly. A large pH-sensitive swelling behavior was observed for different structures of the IPECs. The outcome of swelling and diclofenac sodium release from the polycomplex matrices confirm that they have great potential to be used as a controlled DDS in specified regions of gastrointestinal tract.

Position-specific Scoring Matrices
Tabular numerical representations of sequence motifs displaying their variability as likelihood values for each possible residue at each position in a sequence. Position-specific scoring matrices (PSSMs) are calculated from position frequency matrices.
Process of classifying cells of the immune system based on structural and functional differences. The process is commonly used to analyze and sort T-lymphocytes into subsets based on CD antigens by the technique of flow cytometry.
A central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic with actions and uses similar to DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The smokable form is a drug of abuse and is referred to as crank, crystal, crystal meth, ice, and speed.
A family of multisubunit cytoskeletal motor proteins that use the energy of ATP hydrolysis to power a variety of cellular functions. Dyneins fall into two major classes based upon structural and functional criteria.
A group of heterogeneous lymphoid tumors representing malignant transformations of T-lymphocytes.
