Molecular interactions including protein-protein, enzyme-substrate, protein-nucleic acid, drug-protein, and drug-nucleic acid play important roles in many essential biological proc‐ esses, such as signal transduction, transport, cell regulation, gene expression control, enzyme inhibition, antibody–antigen recognition, and even the assembly of multi-domain(More)
In this study the binding and assembly of bovine serum albumin (BSA) onto three different calcium phosphate phases (hydroxyapatite, dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, and β-tricalcium phosphate) was investigated using a combination of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS). XPS was used to(More)
Microfluidics is a research field which allow us control over liquids at micrometric scale. It has several applications such as chemistry, biomedicine and biology, among others. Microfluidics enable the development of systems capable of cell manipulation and very precise chemical reactions with substantial improvements over common or bulk synthesis, let us(More)
Human bone is a hydroxyapatite HAp (HCa<sub>5</sub>O<sub>13</sub>P<sub>3</sub>) and type I collagen based composite. Nowadays, many methods and techniques have been developed and applied to design advanced materials for bone replacement. A strategy for imitating in a tridimensional way the structure, composition and mechanical properties of a bone is(More)
Collagen and elastin are the two most abundant proteins in the human body, and as biomaterials offer fascinating properties to composite materials. More detailed investigations including these biomaterials within reinforced composites are still needed. This report describes physicochemical properties of fibers composed of collagen type I, collagen III,(More)
Smart biomaterials for active targeting are a novel way for biosensing, gene and drug delivery, and bioimaging. The functional additives are chosen according to the material carrier characteristics, i.e. the functional mercapto acids of different lengths. In order to identify the target tissue, cell, organ or molecule, the biomaterial must be equipped with(More)
