Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV) inocula with different RNA compositions were prepared from infectious transcripts of RNAs 3 and 4 and the Rg 1 isolate, which has a genome consisting only of RNAs 1 and 2. The recombinant viruses were inoculated on 6- to 8-day-old sugarbeet seedlings by 'vortexing'. Inocula containing RNAs 1 and 2 or 1, 2 and 4(More)
Collapsin response mediator proteins (CRMPs) are involved in signal transduction after exposure of neural cells to the axon guidance molecule Semaphorin 3A/collapsin. All five known CRMPs are expressed in the developing cerebral cortex and neocortical neurons are responsive to Semaphorin 3A. Here, we examine the expression and subcellular localization of(More)
The conformation of cyclosporin A was investigated in different environments. Whereas there was no distinct difference between the structure of CSA in CDCl3 and THF, the addition of LiCl caused a conformational change. Also, using polar solvents (DMSO, water) induced conformational changes in the backbone as well as the side chains.
Three mathematical models were applied to quantify drug release from HPMC/lactose-based matrix tablets loaded with varying amounts of theophylline: (i) a numerical model considering drug diffusion in axial and radial direction in cylinders as well as limited drug solubility effects, (ii) an analytical solution of Fick's second law of diffusion considering(More)
A new type of advanced drug delivery systems is proposed: Miniaturized implants, which can be placed into tiny holes drilled into (or close to) the oval window. They consist of two parts: 1) A cylinder, which is inserted into the hole crossing the oval window. The cylinder (being longer than the depth of the hole) is partly located within the inner ear and(More)
Silicone-based drug delivery systems offer a great potential to improve the therapeutic efficacy and safety of a large variety of medical treatments, e.g. allowing for local long-term delivery of active agents to the inner ear. Different formulation parameters can be varied to adjust desired drug release kinetics. However, often only qualitative information(More)
The increasing demand for short- and medium-sized peptides in many fields of biological, medical and pharmaceutical research requires optimized and universally applicable high-throughput synthesis and purification techniques at the low-micromol scale. Here, we describe a continuous peptide synthesis/purification approach using the 96-well format. First, a(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the importance of potential limited solubility effects for the control of drug release from hydrophilic matrix tablets loaded with a freely water-soluble drug. It is often assumed that the considerable amounts of water penetrating into this type of advanced drug delivery systems are sufficient to rapidly dissolve the(More)
