The rapid surface immobilisation of protein on monodispersed polyester microcarriers is reported. A model protein, functionalised with a dibenzocyclooctyne core, immobilises on the surface of azide-terminal polycaprolactone microcarriers within 10 minutes compared to 12 hours for other conjugation techniques and is conducted in physiological conditions and in the absence of coupling reagents.

Polymer nanogels are used as colloidal stabilisers in emulsion polymerization. The nanogels were made by the covalent crosslinking of block copolymer micelles, the macromolecular building blocks of wh...
This work focuses on fabrication of polyimide aerogel microparticles of diameter 200-1000 µm from a surfactant-free, two-phase, silicone oil/dimethylformamide (DMF) oil-in-oil (O/O) system using a si...
Microparticles are used in a variety of different fields, such as drug delivery. Recently, non-spherical microparticle generation has become desirable. The high surface-to-volume ratio of non-spherica...
A novel polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane was fabricated through chemical binding SiO nanoparticles (NPs) and copper ferrocyanide (CuFC) layers onto a membrane surface simultaneously to improve ...
Reversible alteration between different emulsion morphologies like core-shell and Janus is conventionally triggered by altering the interfacial energy between different phases. In contrast, here we sh...
Membrane microparticles are submicron fragments of membrane vesicles shed from various cell types. Circulating endothelial microparticles have been proposed as markers of endothelial injur...
Prospective study to evaluate the efficacy of using self-retained cryopreserved amniotic membrane after debridement in treating Epithelial Base Membrane Dystrophy (EBMD) to optimize the oc...
Background: Psoriasis, a common inflammatory disease, is associated with atherosclerotic vascular diseases, including stroke, myocardial infarction, and impaired microcirculations, among w...
Microparticles have recently emerged as a thrombotic risk marker with a potential role in determining which patients are at greatest risk for developing thrombosis. Available data show an ...
Although the clinical application of differentiation therapy has made great success in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), early fatal bleeding remains an unsolved problem...
Extracellular membrane vesicles generated by the shedding of CELL MEMBRANES blebs. Microparticles originating from PLATELETS; ENDOTHELIAL CELLS; and other cell types circulate in the peripheral blood and through the MICROVASCULATURE where larger cells cannot, functioning as active effectors in a variety of vascular processes such as INFLAMMATION; HEMOSTASIS; angiogenesis; and vascular reactivity. Increased levels are found following stimulation of bleb formation under normal or pathological conditions.
An emulsion of solid color which when spread over a surface leaves a thin decorative and or protective coating.
An interdisciplinary field in materials science, ENGINEERING, and BIOLOGY, studying the use of biological principles for synthesis or fabrication of BIOMIMETIC MATERIALS.
Membrane proteins whose primary function is to facilitate the transport of molecules across a biological membrane. Included in this broad category are proteins involved in active transport (BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT, ACTIVE), facilitated transport and ION CHANNELS.
An organic amine proton acceptor. It is used in the synthesis of surface-active agents and pharmaceuticals; as an emulsifying agent for cosmetic creams and lotions, mineral oil and paraffin wax emulsions, as a biological buffer, and used as an alkalizer.
