The immune-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
This review intends to examine the interactions between the immune system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and discusses products and components from theimmune system that stimulate or inhibit the HPA axis.
Propidium Iodide and PicoGreen as Dyes for the DNA Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy Measurements
The association of propidium iodide with DNA alters its conformation and that it selectively labels plasmid fragments and/or its subpopulations in a concentration-dependent meaner and another dye, PicoGreen, exhibits better properties.
A comprehensive study in triblock copolymer membrane interaction.
A Synergistic Effect of Select Organotin Compounds and Ionic Surfactants on Liposome Membranes
Organometallic compounds and surfactants constitute a potential threat to the environment. For that reason we have embarked on a study of their joint action on membranes. Model lecithin liposome
Liposome-Based Drug Delivery Systems
In selected cases, the application of liposomes in pharmacological therapy improves drug pharmacokinetics compared to its free form and the possibility to achieve partial or total selectivity.
Interaction of Newly Platinum(II) with Tris(2-carboxyethyl)phosphine Complex with DNA and Model Lipid Membrane
Application of both differential scanning calorimetry and infrared spectroscopy to platinum complexes/DPPC showed that cis-DTCEP slightly increases the phospholipid’s main phase transition temperature resulting in decreased fluidity of the model membrane.
Equilibrium dynamics of spermine-induced plasmid DNA condensation revealed by fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy.
Fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy allows for the observation of the condensed and uncondensed molecules simultaneously based solely on different fluorescence lifetimes of the intercalating fluorophore PicoGreen in the folded und unfolded domains of DNA.
