High impact of uranyl ions on carrying-releasing oxygen capability of hemoglobin-based blood substitutes.


The effect of radioactive UO2 (2+) on the oxygen-transporting capability of hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers has been investigated in vitro. The hemoglobin (Hb) microspheres fabricated by the porous template covalent layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly were utilized as artificial oxygen carriers and blood substitutes. Magnetic nanoparticles of iron oxide (Fe3 O4… (More)
