We have attempted to simplify the procedure for coupling various ligands to distal ends of liposome-grafted polyethylene glycol (PEG) chains and to make it applicable for single-step binding of a large variety of a primary amino group-containing substances, including proteins and small molecules. With this in mind, we have introduced a new amphiphilic PEG(More)
Mixed micelles were prepared from poly(ethyleneglycol)-distearyl phosphoethanolamine (PEG2000-PE) and egg phosphatidylcholine. The micelles were covalently modified with the nucleosome-specific monoclonal antibody 2C5 known to recognize and bind a variety of tumor cells via their surface-bound nucleosomes. Covalent attachment of 2C5 antibody was performed(More)
The presented paper describes a technique of remote access to the distributed information measurement and control system on basis of GSM technologies. The mechanism of remote access is implemented by means of mobile device and Siemens TC65 GSM terminal and includes developed software for transferring packets of commands between the terminal and mobile(More)
A growing number of amphiphiles are known to form high axial ratio microstructures (HARMs) such as the hollow cylindrical microstructures called lipid tubules. As a prelude to exploring the potential of HARMs formed from lipopeptides in controlled release drug delivery, several microstructure formation conditions were investigated. We report the preparation(More)
The attempt was made to study liposome stability and oxidation under the autoclaving conditions. It was shown that after the preliminary air removal from a liposome sample there was no lipid oxidation (malonaldehyde bis(dimethyl acetate) was used as a control) and liposome content leakage during autoclaving. Liposomes with entrapped Intal remain completely(More)
Amphiphiles that form high-axial-ratio-microstructures (HARMs) are being considered as novel materials for controlled release of drugs and other biologically functional molecules. HARMs consisting of tubules, ribbons, solid rods and helices are formed from sphingolipids by addition of water to a solution of amphiphile in DMF. Single molecular species of(More)
pH-sensitive liposomes made of phosphatidyl ethanolamine-oleic acid-cholesterol (4:2:4 molar ratio) at neutral pH values aggregate at approximately 40 degrees C. The aggregation is accompanied by liposome destabilization and by the release of intraliposomal fluorescent marker (calcein). Both aggregation and calcein leakage start at the temperature(More)
The energy transfer method has been applied to study the interaction between pH-sensitive liposomes (phosphatidyl ethanolamine/oleic acid/cholesterol, 4:2:4 molar ratio) and plain liposomes (phosphatidyl choline/phosphatidyl ethanolamine/cholesterol, 4:2:3 molar ratio). It was shown that a slow fusion process occurs between two types of liposomes. Also, the(More)
