This paper presents experimental results on the successful encapsulation of a natural liquid pesticide 'neem (Azadirachta Indica A. Juss.) seed oil' hereafter designated as NSO, using sodium alginate (Na-Alg) as a controlled release (CR) polymer after crosslinking with glutaraldehyde (GA). The NSO-containing beads have been prepared by changing the(More)
Acid-soluble and pepsin-soluble collagens have been isolated from spinal ligaments of normal and scoliotic individuals. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of native and cyanogen bromide-treated collagens, and amino acid analysis, showed that the ligament collagen is almost all of the Type I variety with only trace amounts of Type III present. There was no(More)
Supraspinous and interspinous ligaments from patients with infantile and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and from patients with secondary scoliosis were investigated for collagen content and cross-linking. No differences were demonstrated in the collagen content of ligaments from the idiopathic and secondary scoliosis groups. Collagen solubility studies(More)
