Nanoparticles have shown tremendous potential for effective drug delivery due to their tiny size and cell membrane penetration capabilities. Cellular targeting with nanoparticles is often achieved by surface modifications followed by ligand conjugation. However, the efficiency of the nanoparticles reaching the target cells and getting internalized depends(More)
We present here the description of genes coding for molluscan hemocyanins. Two distantly related mollusks, Haliotis tuberculata and Octopus dofleini, were studied. The typical architecture of a molluscan hemocyanin subunit, which is a string of seven or eight globular functional units (FUs, designated a to h, about 50 kDa each), is reflected by the gene(More)
Purified 15 S globin mRNA-protein (mRNP) complexes obtained by EDTA dissociation of duck reticulocytes polyribosomes were digested with the calcium dependant Staphylococcus aureus nuclease (EC 3. 1. 4. 7.). 25% of the globin mRNA sequences were resistant to extensive nuclease digestion as determined by TCA precipitation of the digested 15 S particles(More)
The study of the interaction between mRNA and proteins in the polyribosomal 15 S duck globin messenger ribonucleoprotein complex showed that proteins protect specific mRNA sequences against digestion by the nonspecific micrococcal nuclease (Nucleic Acids Research 6 (8) 2787, 1979). Here we report the isolation of the poly(A)-protein RNP complex from(More)
