Mesoporous bioactive glass (MBG), which possesses excellent bioactivity, biocompatibility and osteoconductivity, has played an important role in bone tissue regeneration. However, it is difficult to prepare MBG scaffolds with high compressive strength for applications in bone regeneration; this difficulty has greatly hindered its development and use. To(More)
The preinfection stage of establishment of the mycorrhiza before physical contact between symbionts is crucial, as changes that occur throughout mycorrhiza formation are set in motion at this time. To improve the understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the fungus Pisolithus tinctorius during its interaction with its symbiotic partner Pinus(More)
A simple and promising H 2 O 2 biosensor has been developed by successful entrapment of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) in a gelatine matrix which was cross-linked with formaldehyde. The large microscopic surface area and porous morphology of the gelatine matrix lead to high enzyme loading and the enzyme entrapped in this matrix can retain its bioactivity.(More)
Smad3 is an intracellular protein that plays a key role in propagating transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) signals from cell membrane to nucleus. However whether the transient process of Smad3 activation occurs on cell membrane and how it is regulated remains elusive. Using advanced live-cell single-molecule fluorescence microscopy to image and track(More)
