Two E genome--(including Ee and Eb) and two St-genome-specific RAPD markers were successfully cloned. Sequencing data indicated that the four DNA fragments were reported for the first time. Chromosome fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) showed that OPD-12(444) (E-specific) was a highly tandem repeat. OPF-03(1296) (Eb-specific), OPB-08(525)(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a method of isolating and culturing adult human blood-derived stem cells(MSCs) and to investigate their osteogenic potential in vitro. METHODS Thirty peripheral blood collected from 30 adult volunteers (15 ml per person). Adult human MSCs derived from peripheral blood from the lymphocyte separation fluid fraction of mononuclear(More)
Fenton's oxidation is traditionally used to remove inorganic and organic pollutants from water in waster water treatment. It is an advanced oxidation process in which H2O2 is catalytically decomposed by ferrous irons into hydroxyl radicals (*OH) which have a higher oxidation potential (2.8V) than H2O2. In the work reported here, we for the first time use(More)
A dense titania film is fabricated in situ on NiTi shape memory alloy (SMA) by anodic oxidation in a Na(2)SO(4) electrolyte. The microstructure of the titania film and its influence on the biocompatibility of NiTi SMA are investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry(More)
A new surface modification protocol encompassing an electropolishing pretreatment (EP) and subsequent photoelectrocatalytic oxidation (PEO) has been developed to improve the surface properties of biomedical nickel titanium (NiTi) shape memory alloy (SMA). Electropolishing is a good way to improve the resistance to localized breakdown of NiTi SMA whereas PEO(More)
Titania (TiO2) coatings with nanostructural surface prepared using plasma spraying technology were irradiated by ultraviolet light in simulated body fluids to improve their bioactivity. The in vitro bioactivity of the coatings was evaluated by investigating the formation of apatite on their surfaces in simulated body fluids. Bone-like apatite was observed(More)
In this work, plasma sprayed wollastonite/silver coatings were prepared to obtain an implant material having excellent bioactivity, cytocompatibility as well as antibacterial property. The surface characteristics of wollastonite/silver coating were investigated by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectrometer, atomic absorbance spectroscope(More)
The reverse phase suspension and embedment technique were adopted to prepare magnetic dextran microsphere (MDMS). The dispersion medium was mixture of some organic solvents. Span-80 was used as stabilizer. The aqueous dextran with magnetic fluid was suspended in dispersion medium with epichlorohydrin as cross-linking reagent. The mixture was stirred for 30(More)
Microstructural characteristics and biocompatibility of a Type-B carbonated hydroxyapatite (HA) coating prepared on NiTi SMA by biomimetic deposition were characterized using XRD, SEM, XPS, FTIR and in vitro studies including hemolysis test, MTT cytotoxicity test and fibroblasts cytocompatibility test. It is found CO(3)(2-) groups were present as(More)
In this work, gentamicin loaded collagen was grafted on the surface of plasma sprayed wollastonite coatings to obtain an implant having excellent bioactivity and cytocompatibility as well as antibacterial property. The bioactivity and cytocompatibility of the wollastonite coatings grafting gentamicin loaded collagen were examined by simulated body fluid(More)
