We tested the hypothesis that during metabolism of naphthalene and other substrates by Pseudomonas sp. strain As1 oxidative stress arises and can be reduced by antioxidant enzymes. Our approach was to prepare plasmid constructs that conferred expression of two single antioxidant enzymes [Fpr (ferredoxin-NADP(+) reductase) and SOD (superoxide dismutase)] and(More)
A versatile biolinker for efficient antibody immobilization was prepared by site-specific coupling of protein G to DNA oligonucleotide. This protein G-DNA conjugate ensures the controlled immobilization of an antibody to the intended area on the surface of bioassay chips or particles, while maintaining the activity and orientation of the bound antibody.(More)
With the optimization of the pretreatment conditions for the crude Thermobifida fusca cellulase activity and phenolic release from apple peel, we focused on the activity of individual purified cellulase related to the antioxidant activity. The overall phenolic release was significantly increased in a synergistic manner with combined pretreatment, not with(More)
Dissolving microneedles, three-dimensional polymer structures with microscale cross-sectional dimensions, have been introduced as a means of safe transdermal drug delivery. Most dissolving microneedles have been fabricated using a traditional micro-casting method that cures biopolymers within three-dimensional mold, nevertheless, repeated molding process(More)
Adv. Mater. 2010, 22, 483–486 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag Gm T IO N Microneedles, that is, 3D micromechanical structures with microscale cross-sectional dimensions, have been introduced as an alternative to hypodermic needles for minimally invasive drug delivery and blood extraction. In particular, microneedles can be used for the delivery of transdermal(More)
The microneedle-mediated drug delivery system has been developed to provide painless self-administration of drugs in a patient-friendly manner. Current dissolving microneedle fabrication methods, however, require harsh conditions for biological drugs and also have problems standardizing the drug dose. Here, we suggested the droplet-born air blowing (DAB)(More)
Nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) were employed to formulate a lipophilic drug into hydrophilic polymeric microneedles (MNs). Hyaluronic acid (HA) was selected as a hydrophilic and bioerodible polymer to fabricate MNs, and nile red (NR) was used as a model lipophilic molecule. NR-loaded NLCs were consolidated into the HA-based MNs to prepare NLC-loaded(More)
A microneedle is a three-dimensional (3D) micromechanical structure and has been in the spotlight recently as a drug delivery system (DDS). Because a microneedle delivers the target drug after penetrating the skin barrier, the therapeutic effects of microneedles proceed from its 3D structural geometry. Various types of microneedles have been fabricated(More)
Dissolving microneedles (DMNs), designed to release drugs and dissolve after skin insertion, have been spotlighted as a novel transdermal delivery system due to their advantages such as minimal pain and tissue damage, ability to self-administer, and no associated hazardous residues. The drug delivery efficacy of DMNs, however, is limited by incomplete(More)
The binding and reversibility of Thermobifida fusca intact Cel5A, Cel5B, and Cel48A and their corresponding catalytic domains (CDs) to bacterial microcrystalline cellulose (BMCC) were studied at 5 degrees C. The binding of the intact cellulases and of corresponding CDs to BMCC was irreversible in all regions: Langmuir binding (region I), interstice(More)
