The portal appearance of enteral alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) and the effect of enteral or parenteral AKG on portal net appearance of glucose, short-chain fatty acids, alanine, aspartate, glutamate, glutamine, proline and insulin were investigated in three growing pigs. During the experimental samplings the pigs were fed hourly with a standard feed mix with 5%(More)
Tissue-engineered skin is a significant advance in the field of wound healing. It has mainly been developed because of limitations associated with the use of autografts and allografts where the donor site suffers from pain, infection, and scarring. Recently, tissue-engineered skin replacements have been finding widespread application, especially in the case(More)
Cryogels are gel matrices that are formed in moderately frozen solutions of monomeric or polymeric precursors. Cryogels typically have interconnected macropores (or supermacropores), allowing unhindered diffusion of solutes of practically any size, as well as mass transport of nano- and even microparticles. The unique structure of cryogels, in combination(More)
Macroporous sponge-like gelatin-fibrinogen (Gl-Fg) scaffolds cross-linked with different concentrations (0.05-0.5%) of glutaraldehyde (GA) were produced using cryogelation technology, which allows for the preparation of highly porous scaffolds without compromising their mechanical properties, and is a more cost-efficient process than freeze-drying. The(More)
Macroporous hydrogels (MHs), cryogels, are a new type of biomaterials for tissue engineering that can be produced from any natural or synthetic polymer that forms a gel. Synthetic MHs are rendered bioactive by surface or bulk modifications with extracellular matrix components. In this study, cell response to the architecture of protein ligands, bovine(More)
Effective technologies are required to remove organic micropollutants from large fluid volumes to overcome present and future challenges in water and effluent treatment. A novel hierarchical composite filter material for rapid and effective removal of polar organic contaminants from water was developed. The composite is fabricated from phenolic(More)
A method for separating glycoproteins on a boronate column under conditions which suppress the interactions between the protein moiety and the boronic acid ligand has been developed. A model system consisting of non-glycosylated chymotrypsin and maltose-modified chymotrypsin (cht-mal) was utilised in the investigations. Chymotrypsin was chosen as the model(More)
A mixture of two mistletoe lectins (MLs) has been separated according to the degree of glycosylation using boronate affinity chromatography. The mistletoe lectins, mistletoe lectin I (MLI) and mistletoe lectin III (MLIII) with degrees of glycosylation of 6.1 and 3.8%, respectively, were used in the investigation. MLI exhibited a higher retention time than(More)
Currently, there are no effective therapies to restore lost brain neurons, although rapid progress in stem cell biology and biomaterials development provides new tools for regeneration of central nervous system. Here we describe neurogenic properties of bioactive scaffolds generated by cryogelation of dextran or gelatin linked to laminin - the main(More)
Since the brain is naturally inefficient in regenerating functional tissue after injury or disease, novel restorative strategies including stem cell transplantation and tissue engineering have to be considered. We have investigated the use of such strategies in order to achieve better functional repair outcomes. One of the fundamental challenges of(More)
