Growth of 6 bacterial strains representing dominant members of the human colonic microflora was measured in the presence of 0.025, 0.05 and 0.5 % chitosan (from shrimp shells, with a 97 % final degree of deacetylation). The effect of chitosan was variable and dependent on bacterial species. The most susceptible to chitosan were bacteria belonging to genera(More)
The crude fractions of chitooligosaccharides (COS) and low-molar-mass chitosans (LMWC) were prepared by enzyme hydrolysis of chitosan (CS). Specific growth rate of B. adolescentis, B. bifidum, B. breve, B. catenulatum, B. infantis and B. longum ssp. longum was determined in the presence of 0.025 and 0.5 % COS (<5 kDa), LMWC (5-10 kDa), and 0.025, 0.1 and(More)
Ni2+ complexes of the chelating nonporous and porous bead sorbents based on methacrylic esters crosslinked with ethylene dimethacrylate were used in isolation of the horseradish peroxidase-specific immunoglobulin IgG1 from the crude mouse ascitic fluid by immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography (IMAC). Iminodiacetic and aspartic acids were attached to(More)
Membrane diafiltration was used for separation of the extracellular complex of chitinolytic enzymes of C. paraputrificum J4 free from contaminants with molar mass higher than 100 kDa and lower than 30 kDa. The enzyme complex containing beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGase) and six endochitinases was concentrated on a membrane with cut-off 30 kDa. In this(More)
The paper describes the process to produce Chitin Nanofibril-Hyaluronan nanoparticles (CN-HA), showing their ability to easily load active ingredients, facilitate penetration through the skin layers, and increase their effectiveness and safety as an 141 anti-aging agent. Size and characterization of CN-HA nanoparticles were determined by Scanning Electron(More)
Silanization of macroporous glass microfiber filters with (3-aminopropyl)triethoxysilane (APTES) and subsequent binding of [2-(3,4-epoxycyclohexyl)ethyl]heptaisobutyloctasilsesquioxane (E-POSS) to the amine-terminated surface of microfibers was studied. Prior to the silanization, minute quantities of concentrated aqueous solutions of hydrochloric acid or(More)
Rheological properties of chitosan acetate solutions containing chitin nanofibrils (n-chitin) and biocompatible plasticizers intended for preparation of biodegradable films are reported in the steady, oscillatory and transient shear flow. The experiments were performed on slurries with an optimum proportion of 65/35 wt.% between chitosan and n-chitin in the(More)
Membrane ultrafiltration (UF) was used in sample preparation of the culture fluids of the human intestinal bacterium Clostridium paraputrificum strain J4 containing seven extracellular chitinolytic isoenzymes (38-90 kDa). The subsequent filtration of the bacteria-free supernatants was carried out through Millipore membranes with cut-off 100 and 30 kDa for(More)
The object of this study are chitinolytic enzymes produced by bacterium Clostridium paraputrificum J4 isolated from the gastrointestinal tract of a healthy human. In particular, we focus on the development of purification protocols, determination of properties of the enzymes and their activity profiles. The process of bacteria cultivation and isolation of(More)
Terpolymer bead particles (100-350 microm in diameter) were prepared by suspension radical polymerization from methacrylate esters [2,3-epoxypropyl methacrylate (GMA), 2-(2-hydroxyethoxy)ethyl methacrylate (DEGMA) and ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA)] and subsequently derivatized affording iminodiacetic acid (IDA) chelating sorbents. The sorbents differed in(More)
