Marsypianthes chamaedrys is a common herb that occurs in the North and Northeast regions of Brazil. Phytochemical studies showed this plant to be rich in triterpenoids. The hexane extract of M. chamaedrys yielded, after chromatographic separations, two mixtures: the first containing monohydroxylated-compounds (alpha-amyrin, beta-amyrin, lupeol and(More)
CaF2-based nanoparticles (NP) are promising biocompatible tools for nanomedicine applications. The structure of the NP crystal lattice allows for specific interactions with Ca2+-binding proteins through their EF-hand cation binding motifs. Here we investigated the interaction of 23 nm citrate-coated CaF2 NP with a calcium sensor protein GCAP1 that is(More)
