In this work, the influence of an internal electric field upon the crystallization of lysozyme and thaumatin is explored using a modified design of the gel-acupuncture setup. From a crystallographic point of view, the orientation of crystals that grow preferentially over different types of electrodes inside capillary tubes is also evaluated. Finally, the(More)
Sophisen, a new ophthalmic drug carrier, was characterized using physicochemical and morphological criteria. Diclofenac belongs to a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory molecule group and its ophthalmic use avoids side effects produced by steroid drugs. Cyclosporine-A is a cyclic peptide used as an immunosuppressive when administrated systemically. Its(More)
Plant-type L-asparaginases hydrolyze the side-chain amide bond of L-asparagine or its beta-peptides. They belong to the N-terminal nucleophile (Ntn) hydrolases and are synthesized as inactive precursor molecules. Activation occurs via the autoproteolytic release of two subunits, alpha and beta, the latter of which carries the nucleophile at its N-terminus.(More)
