S-methylmethionine (SMM), an important intermediate compound in the sulphur metabolism, can be found in various quantities in majority of plants. The experiments were designed to determine the extent to which SMM is able to preserve cell membrane integrity or reduce the degree of membrane damage in the course of low-temperature stress. By measuring(More)
The extracellular cellulase system of the white-rotting basidiomycete Ganoderma lucidum was characterised while growing in cellulose-containing shaken liquid culture. The protein content of the culture filtrate reached its maximum after 36 days and cellulase activity at about 60 days. Different cellulase activities (endoglucanase, cellobiohydrolase and(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine the changes of dynamic surface tension of aqueous Eudragit dispersions quantitatively and compare these data with the free volume of the free films formed from several dispersions of different dibutyl sebacate (DBS) concentrations. Eudragit L 30D and Eudragit RL 30D aqueous colloidal polymer dispersions and(More)
Pelletization is increasingly applied currently for the preparation of solid oral controlled-release dosage forms. The production of the particles, which are regular in shape and size, can be achieved with the application of the proper polymer auxiliary materials and new pharmaceutical technological methods (extrusion, spheronization). Regularity in shape(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of three chlorhexidine species, chlorhexidine base and its salts (diacetate and digluconate), on the physico-chemical features of liquid crystalline systems and on drug transport through lipophilic membranes. Nonionic surfactant, Synperonic A7 (PEG(7)-C(13--15)) was selected for the preparation of the(More)
The purpose of the present work was to study the relationship between the physicochemical characteristics of different polyethylene glycol aqueous solutions and the kinetics of potassium chloride release from wax matrix samples containing polyethylene glycol derivatives. Potassium chloride was embedded into thermosoftening matrix material to produce a(More)
A sensitive, specific high-performance liquid chromatographic procedure was developed for the determination of plasma drotaverine levels. Basic plasma samples were adjusted to pH 1.5 and extracted with chloroform. HPLC [n-heptane-dichloromethane-diethylamine (50:25:2)] on a microporous silica column, with a variable-wavelength UV detector set at 302 nm(More)
Both qualitative and quantitative differences in the minor nucleotide constituents of rRNA from normally grown and from etiolated wheat plants (Triticum aestivum L.) were established. Using different degradation methods and separation techniques the 18S+26S RNA of 8-day-old wheat seedlings grown in the light was found to contain 5-methylcytidine,(More)
The aim of this study was to examine different liquid crystalline preparations containing chlorhexidine diacetate and to find connection between their structure and the kinetic of drug release. Nonionic surfactant, Synperonic A7 (PEG(7)-C(13-15)) was selected for the preparation of the examined liquid crystalline systems. Mixtures of different ratios of(More)
