The effect of dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC)/dihexanoyl phosphatidylcholine (DHPC) bicelles on the microstructure of pig stratum corneum (SC) in vitro was evaluated. The physicochemical characterization of these nanoaggregates revealed small disks with diameters around 15 nm and a thickness of 5.4 nm. Upon dilution, the bicelles grow and transform(More)
The high-pressure freeze fixation and freeze fracture electron microscopy techniques were combined with the (31)P nuclear magnetic resonance to study the morphological transitions of two different dimyristoyl-phosphatidilcholine/dihexanoyl-phosphocholine aggregates by the effect of temperature. Through these techniques, the relationship between magnetic(More)
The characteristics and limitations that investigators in developed countries should take into account in conducting biomedical research on human subjects in regions such as Latin America and the Caribbean are reviewed. The authors first cite international ethical principles that have been established in the developed countries to serve as a guide in(More)
Biomedical research on human subjects involves certain ethical principles, several of which are described in this article. It is also true, however, that application of these principles in real life poses problems, especially in the case of international research conducted under culturally diverse conditions. This presentation examines certain cultural and(More)
Ashy stem blight (ASB) caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goidanich (Mp) is a devastating seed-transmitted disease in common bean in the tropics. The identification of resistant cultivars throughout the cropping season contributes to disease management. Resistance is found in the primary and tertiary gene pools. Our objectives were to determine (1)(More)
