The acid–base properties of γ-l-glutamyl-l-cysteinyl-glycine (glutathione, GSH) were determined by potentiometry (ISE-H+, glass electrode) in pure NaI(aq) and in NaCl(aq)/MgCl2(aq), and NaCl(aq)/CaCl2(aq) mixtures, at T = 298.15 K and different ionic strengths (up to I c ~ 5.0 mol L−1). In addition, the activity coefficients of glutathione were also… (More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Cytokines are part of a family of molecules involved in the initiation, control and termination of the events that occurs in wound healing process. Aim of this study was to evaluate the production of some cytokines [interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10, IL-1alpha, IL-1ra, interferon (IFN)-gamma] in the drainage wound fluid from patients undergoing… (More)
New potentiometric experiments have been performed in NaCl and in (CH3)4NCl media, to determine the protonation constants, the protonation enthalpy changes and the solubility of six natural α-amino acids, namely Glycine (Gly), Alanine (Ala), Valine (Val), Leucine (Leu), Serine (Ser) and Phenylalanine (Phe). The aim of the work is the rationalization of the… (More)
A model of synthetic saliva (SALMO, SALiva MOdel) is proposed for its use as standard medium in in vitro equilibrium and speciation studies of real saliva. The concentrations come out from the literature analysis of the composition of both real saliva and synthetic saliva. The chief interactions of main inorganic components of saliva, as well as urea and… (More)
The sequestering ability of polyamines and aminoacids of biological and environmental relevance (namely, ethylenediamine, putrescine, spermine, a polyallylamine, a branched polyethyleneimine, aspartate, glycinate, lysinate) toward dimethyltin(IV) cation was evaluated. The stability of various dimethyltin(IV) / ligand species was determined in NaCl(aq) at t… (More)
