The monolayer properties of sulfatide and cholesterol binary system have been investigated with surface pressure-mean molecular area isotherms measurements and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The thermodynamic analysis indicates that the obtained negative deviation of the excess molecular area (DeltaA((ex))) and surface excess Gibbs energy (DeltaG((ex)))(More)
Betulinic acid (BA, a natural pentacyclic triterpene) can induce mitochondrial membrane damage and trigger the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis in tumor cells. The monolayer behavior of binary systems of BA and cardiolipin (CL, a unique phospholipid found only in mitochondria membrane in animals) was studied by surface pressure-area (π-A) measurements and(More)
We herein describe a method of depositing hemoglobin (Hb) and sulfonated polyaniline (SPAN) on GC electrodes that facilitate interfacial protein electron transfer. Well-defined, reproducible, chemically reversible peaks of Hb and SPAN can be obtained in our experiments. We also observed enhanced peroxidase activity of Hb in SPAN films. These results clearly(More)
In this study, we explored the mechanism of the killing effects of a moderate-intensity static magnetic field (SMF) and cisplatin (DDP) on K562 cells. We analyzed the metabolic activity of cells, the extracellular DDP content, and P-glycoprotein (P-gp) expression after K562 cells were exposed continuously to a uniform 8.8 mT SMF for 8 h, with or without(More)
The interaction between ganglioside GM1 (GM1) and diosgenin (Dios) in mixed monolayers was investigated using surface pressure measurements and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The miscibility and stability of the mixed monolayer was evaluated both in a qualitative and quantitative way in terms of the excess mean molecular area (ΔAex), excess Gibbs energy(More)
Sulfatides are important constituents of brain myelin membranes and it is thought to be involved in lateral domain formation in biological membranes. In this work, the interaction of mixed systems of sulfatide with 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) and 1, 2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (DPPE), two of the major components in(More)
Hexadecanol is chemically stable and can be used as an effective addition in synthetic clinical lung surfactant preparations to improve their spreading properties. In this work, a detailed thermodynamic and structural characterization of a simple model system, which based on a hexadecanol-phospholipid mixture is reported. Langmuir monolayers of binary(More)
This study investigated a new and easy-to-industrialized extracting method for curcumin from Curcuma longa rhizomes using ultrasonic extraction technology combined with ammonium sulfate/ethanol aqueous two-phase system (ATPS), and the preparation of curcumin using the semi-preparative HPLC. The single-factor experiments and response surface methodology(More)
Fluorescence quenching was used to study the potential interaction mechanism of Bovine serum albumin (BSA) with either hydrophilic ferroferric oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (NPs) or hydrophobic Fe3O4 NPs. The experimental results indicated the mechanism between BSA and hydrophilic Fe3O4 NPs was static quenching and the one between BSA and hydrophobic Fe3O4(More)
Cytochrome c (Cyt c) is an essential component of the inner mitochondrial respiratory chain because of its function of transferring electrons. The feature is closely related to the interaction between Cyt c and membrane lipids. We used Langmuir-Blodgett monolayer technique combined with AFM to study the interaction of Cyt c with lipid monolayers at(More)
