Polylactide−Poly(ethylene glycol) Copolymers as Drug Delivery Systems. 1. Characterization of Water Dispersible Micelle-Forming Systems
Copolymers of polylactide and poly(ethylene glycol) (PLA−PEG), which self-disperse in water to form spherical nonionic micelles, have been investigated as a novel biodegradable drug delivery system.Expand

Atomic force microscopy of gastric mucin and chitosan mucoadhesive systems.
Atomic force microscopy has been utilized to probe, at a molecular level, the interaction between purified pig gastric mucin (PGM) and a mucoadhesive cationic polymer, chitosan (sea cure 210+), withExpand

Identification of a Flavin:NADH Oxidoreductase Involved in the Biosynthesis of Actinorhodin
The biosynthesis of the polyketide antibiotic actinorhodin by Streptomyces coelicolor involves the oxidative dimerization and hydroxylation of a precursor, most likely dihydrokalafungin, as the finalExpand

Genetic improvement of tomato by targeted control of fruit softening
Controlling the rate of softening to extend shelf life was a key target for researchers engineering genetically modified (GM) tomatoes in the 1990s, but only modest improvements were achieved.Expand
