Mesodyn simulation is employed in this research to investigate the influences of temperature on the solubilization of menthol by platycodin D. The results show that the crucial factor on the speed of solubilization of menthol is the time for micellization of platycodin D. Increase in temperature is not conducive to the micellization of platycodin D, but it may have a positive effect on the diffusion of menthol into platycodin D micelles. Considering both the speed and efficiency of the…

Solubilization of menthol by platycodin D in aqueous solution: an integrated study of classical experiments and dissipative particle dynamics simulation.
Results showed that both the method by which M was added and the concentration of PD had significant effects on the solubilization efficiency of M, and these influences were closely associated with each other.
Proposed mechanisms for the extracellular release of PD-L1 by the anticancer saponin platycodin D.
The hypothesis that PTD is a cholesterol-dependent lipid raft-modulating agent able to promote the formation of PD-L1 containing extracellular vesicles is supported, as well as the anticancer potential of PTD and its capacity to modulate the functioning of the PD-1/PD-L 1 checkpoint.


The Mesodyn simulation of pluronic water mixtures using the ‘equivalent chain’ method
The new dynamic density functional method—mesoscopic dynamics (Mesodyn)—was used to simulate microphage separation kinetics of aqueous pluronic solutions. The ‘equivalent chain’ method was used to
Aggregation between xanthan and nonyphenyloxypropyl beta-hydroxyltrimethylammonium bromide in aqueous solution: MesoDyn simulation and binding isotherm measurement.
Results indicate that the formation of aggregates is an exothermic process, and their formation becomes more difficult and the formation rate decreases with increasing temperature.
Solubilization of saikosaponin a by ginsenoside Ro biosurfactant in aqueous solution: mesoscopic simulation.
The evaluation of the SSa solubilization process reveals that, at low concentrations, Ro aggregates preferentially to form vesicles, which then absorb SSa into themselves, however, at high concentrations, SSa first self-aggregates and then dissolves.
Mesoscale simulation of block copolymers in aqueous solution: parameterisation, micelle growth kinetics and the effect of temperature and concentration morphology
In this work, we utilise ‘MesoDyn’ [J Chem Phys 99 (1993) 9202; 106 (1997) 4260] density functional simulations to study the effect of temperature and concentration on the micellar morphology of
