Immunopotentiating reconstituted influenza virosomes (IRIV) were used as a delivery system for the synthetic peptide-based malaria vaccine SPf66. The reduced SPf66 peptide molecules containing terminal cysteine residues were covalently attached to phosphatidylethanolamine with the heterobifunctional crosslinker gamma-maleimidobutyric acid(More)
Lithography can be performed with beams of neutral atoms in metastable excited states to pattern self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of alkanethiolates on gold. An estimated exposure of a SAM of dodecanethiolate (DDT) to 15 to 20 metastable argon atoms per DDT molecule damaged the SAM sufficiently to allow penetration of an aqueous solution of ferricyanide to(More)
Surface exposed protein antigens of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum frequently harbor multiple dimorphic amino acid positions. These are associated with parasite immune evasion and represent a major obstacle for subunit vaccine design. Here, we have analyzed the flexibility of the humoral immune response against a semiconserved sequence(More)
