Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), a protein, plays a key role in wound healing and blood vessel regeneration. However, bFGF is easily degraded in biologic systems. Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with well-tailored porous structure have been used for hosting guest molecules for drug delivery. Here, we report an in situ route to load bFGF in MSNs(More)
Ethanol concentration and fermentation productivity using Saccharomyces cerevisiae were substantially increased in shake flask cultures with a normal inoculum by combining 3 methods: (a) by making nutrient additions to the standard medium for ethanol production, (b) by immobilizing the cells in alginate beads and (c) by using a glucose step-feeding batch(More)
