Variations in coupled water, viscoelastic properties, and film thickness of a Mefp-1 protein film during adsorption and cross-linking: a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring,
We have measured the time-resolved adsorption kinetics of the mussel adhesive protein (Mefp-1) on a nonpolar, methyl-terminated (thiolated) gold surface, using three independent techniques: quartzExpand

Adsorption behavior and enzymatically or chemically induced cross‐linking of a mussel adhesive protein
The adsorption behavior of the mussel adhesive protein Mytilus edulis foot protein‐1 (Mefp‐1) has been investigated on a negatively charged polar SiO2 surface and an electrically inert non‐polarExpand

Molecular markers for UV-B stress in plants: alteration of the expression of four classes of genes in Pisum sativum and the formation of high molecular mass RNA adducts.
Sixteen ultraviolet-B radiation-regulated pea genes were identified. Functionally, the corresponding proteins were divided into four groups. (i) Chloroplast-localized proteins. Genes for theseExpand

An original approach for gas chromatography-olfactometry detection frequency analysis: Application to gin
Abstract Gas Chromatography-Olfactometry (GC-O) is a technique that lies halfway between physicochemical and sensory analysis and involves the perception of volatile flavour compounds, separated byExpand

Importance of substrate and photo-induced effects in Raman spectroscopy of single functional erythrocytes.
Hemoglobin (Hb) in single erythrocytes (red blood cells), adsorbed on polylysine-coated glass surfaces, was studied using resonance Raman spectroscopy and global Raman imaging. The erythrocytes wereExpand

The influence of cross-linking on protein-protein interactions in a marine adhesive: the case of two byssus plaque proteins from the blue mussel.
The interaction between two proteins, Mefp-1 and Mefp-2, from the byssal plaque of the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis, was investigated using a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoringExpand

Lipopolysaccharide removal by a peptide-functionalized surface.
Five peptides: BPI(85-109); CAP18(106-137); endotoxin inhibitor (EI); GQ33 and GQ33C, derived from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-binding molecules were investigated for LPS-binding ability with a view toExpand

Change of colloidal and surface properties of Mytilus edulis foot protein 1 in the presence of an oxidation (NaIO4) or a complex-binding (Cu2+) agent.
Quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) was used to study the viscoelastic properties of the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis, foot protein 1 (Mefp-1) adsorbed on modifiedExpand
