The concentration of CO(2) in global surface ocean waters is increasing due to rising atmospheric CO(2) emissions, resulting in lower pH and a lower saturation state of carbonate ions. Such changes in seawater chemistry are expected to impact calcification in calcifying marine organisms. However, other physiological processes related to calcification might(More)
Liposomes were prepared with phospholipids (sphingomyelin, lecithin, and phosphatidylethanolamine) in combination with cholesterol and charged lipids (dicetyl phosphate and stearylamine) and contained either poly(I):poly(C) or poly(I). Neutral and positively charged liposomes attached much better to L-929 cells in tissue culture than did negatively charged(More)
Intravenous injection of negatively and positively charged liposomes containing entrapped poly(I)-poly(C) induced a vigorous interferon response in mice with serum titers of interferon reaching twenty times those observed with comparable dosages of free poly(I)-poly(C). The response did not persist over an extended time period as observed earlier for(More)
