Lysozyme was hydrophobically modified with a fatty acid, sodium oleate, via an ion-pairing mechanism. Ionic binding between an anionic carboxylic group of sodium oleate and basic amino groups in lysozyme was primarily utilized to form lysozyme-oleate complex. The complex formation was pH dependent. The lysozyme-oleate complex dissolved in an organic solvent(More)
Clay minerals have previously been used to mitigate algal blooms because of their ability to flocculate algal cells or remove nutrients, but also offer considerable potential to remove ichthyotoxins. When a barramundi farm in tropical Australia suffered substantial fish mortalities due to a bloom of the ichthyotoxic haptophyte Prymnesium parvum, the farm(More)
