MicroRNAs: synthesis, mechanism, function, and recent clinical trials.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, endogenous RNAs of 21-25 nucleotides (nts) in length. They play an important regulatory role in animals and plants by targeting specific mRNAs for degradation… Expand
Water holding and release properties of bacterial cellulose obtained by in situ and ex situ modification
Abstract The biomedical applications of bacterial cellulose (BC) as a dressing material are mainly dependent on its water holding capacity (WHC) and water release rate (WRR), which in turn depend on… Expand
Nanoreinforced bacterial cellulose-montmorillonite composites for biomedical applications.
Polymer composites containing solid clay nanoparticles have attracted immense attention due to the reinforced physico-mechanical properties of the final product. Bacterial cellulose-montmorillonite… Expand
Physicochemical and mechanical characterization of bacterial cellulose produced with an excellent productivity in static conditions using a simple fed-batch cultivation strategy
The aim of the present study was to investigate the structural modifications and physico-mechanical properties of the BC sheets produced in static cultures using a newly developed fed-batch strategy… Expand
Functional biopolymers produced by biochemical technology considering applications in food engineering
Polysaccharides are widely used in foods as thickening, gelling, stabilizing, emulsifying, and water-binding agents. The majority of the polysaccharides currently employed in the food industry are… Expand
MicroRNA and diseases: therapeutic potential as new generation of drugs.
MicroRNA (miRNA) is a small non-coding regulatory RNA of 21-25 nucleotides (nts) in length. miRNA works as a post-transcriptional regulator of a specific mRNA by inducing degradation or translation… Expand
Bacterial cellulose production from a single sugar α-linked glucuronic acid-based oligosaccharide
Abstract A single sugar α-linked glucuronic acid-based oligosaccharide (SSGO), which is a by-product produced during bacterial cellulose (BC) synthesis by Gluconacetobacter hansenii, was evaluated as… Expand
