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

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

Use of Surface-Sensitive Methods for the Study of Adsorption and Cross-Linking of Marine Bioadhesives
ABSTRACT The establishment of the bond of sessile marine organisms such as barnacles, mussels, and algae in the marine environment starts with the secretion and the adsorption of the adhesiveExpand
