The behavior of mixed monolayers of cholesterol and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) with molecular weights of M(w) = 120,000 g/mol and M(w) = 15,000 g/mol was investigated at the air/water interface using Langmuir and Brewster angle microscopy techniques. From the data of surface pressure (pi)-area (A) isotherms, compressional modulus-surface pressure(More)
The peptide corresponding to the sequence (279-298) of the Hepatitis G virus (HGV/GBV-C) E2 protein was synthesized, and surface activity measurements, pi-A compression isotherms, and penetration of E2(279-298) into phospholipid monolayers spread at the air-water interface were carried out on water and phosphate buffer subphases. The results obtained(More)
In this work the interaction between human serum albumin (HSA) and a monofluorinated phospholipid, 1-palmitoyl-2-[16-fluoropalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine] (F-DPPC), was studied by using Langmuir monolayer and Brewster angle microscopy (BAM) techniques. Different amounts of F-DPPC were spread on a previously formed HSA monolayer located at the air/water(More)
Reconstructive transformations in layered silicates need a high temperature in order to be observed. However, very recently, some systems have been found where transformation can be studied at temperatures 600 degrees C below the lowest experimental results previously reported, including sol-gel methods. We explore the possible relation with the existence(More)
The behavior of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) polymer monolayer spread on water was studied under various experimental conditions. The influence of subphase pH and temperature, compression speed, elapsed time from the deposit of the monolayer and the recording of the surface pressure-area (π-A) isotherms, as well as the number of polymer(More)
The purpose of this study is to define the conditions required to obtain a complete spreading of the lysozyme monolayer at the A/W interface. To this end, using Trurnit's method, the influence of the ionic strength of the substrate, the elapsed time between the spreading of the monolayer and the beginning of its compression, and the number of lysozyme(More)
Mixed monolayers of PMMA-lysozyme show the existence of negative deviations from the additivity of the molecular areas (A(m)) when the composition of polymer mixtures is less than X(PMMA) 0.6, regardless of the surface pressure of the monolayers. The maximum deviation occurs in the mixed monolayer with composition X(PMMA) 0.25, which is attributed to the(More)
In this work, surface film balance and Brewster angle microscopy techniques have been used to analyze the structural characteristics (structure, topography, reflectivity, thickness, miscibility, and interactions) of hydrolysates from sunflower protein isolate (SPI) and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) mixed monolayers spread on the air-water interface.(More)
The aim of this study is to deepen the understanding of the behavior of human serum albumin (HSA) and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) mixed monolayers. For this purpose, different amounts of DPPC were spread at 25°C on the water surface containing a monolayer of HSA. Surface film balance and Brewster angle microscopy techniques have been(More)
The structural and topographical characteristics of a sunflower protein isolate (SPI) and its hydrolysates at different degrees of hydrolysis (DH = 5.62%, 23.5%, and 46.3%) spread at the air-water interface at pH 7 and 20 degrees C were determined from pi-A isotherms coupled with Brewster angle microscopy (BAM). The structural characteristics of SP(More)
