Sub-100-nm nanoparticles were prepared from beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) with a narrow size distribution by a desolvation method using glutaraldehyde for cross-linking. With pre-heating of the BLG solution to 60 degrees C and subsequent pH readjustment to 9.0, nanoparticles of 59 +/- 5 nm were obtained with improved uniformity. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) nanoparticles, prepared under similar conditions for comparison, were larger and less uniform. The half-width of 80% particle distribution was…

Zinc‐loaded whey protein nanoparticles prepared by enzymatic cross‐linking and desolvation

Zinc-loaded whey protein nanoparticles were prepared by enzymatic cross-linking whey protein followed by ethanol desolvation. Whey protein isolate (WPI) was denatured by heating (80 °C for 15 min) at

Preparation of Curcumin Loaded Egg Albumin Nanoparticles Using Acetone and Optimization of Desolvation Process

In this study, acetone was used as a desolvating agent to prepare the curcumin-loaded egg albumin nanoparticles and the model equations generated for each response was validated and it can be used to predict the response values at any concentration and pH.

Protein-Based Delivery Systems for Anticancer Metallodrugs: Structure and Biological Activity of the Oxaliplatin/β-Lactoglobulin Adduct

The data demonstrate that OXA rapidly binds β-lactoglobulin via coordination with a Met7 side chain upon release of the oxalate ligand, and that the protein can be used as a metallodrug delivery system.

Lactoferrin-modified poly(ethylene glycol)-grafted BSA nanoparticles as a dual-targeting carrier for treating brain gliomas.

Lf-NPs were a prospective dual-targeting drug delivery system for effective targeting therapy of brain gliomas and showed the strongest cytotoxicity and the highest effectiveness in the uptake both in BCECs and C6 as well as improved the dual- targeting effects.

Acid-responsive properties of fibrils from heat-induced whey protein concentrate.

The results showed that the nanofibrils had acid-responsive properties and good thermal stability after reheating for 10h at 90°C and adjusting pH from 1.5 to 1.8 twice, and the content of fibrils slightly increased with a further reduction of α-helix structure.

Milk protein-based nanodelivery systems for the cancer treatment

Various nanodrug delivery systems containing milk proteins, which are designed for cancer treatment, show promising potential in providing more targeted delivery of drugs thereby reducing the cytotoxic effects of chemotherapy.

Albendazole loaded albumin nanoparticles for ovarian cancer therapy

Albendazole is formulated into albumin nanoparticles with a size range of 200–300 nm, which were cross-linked with glutaraldehyde to stabilize the nanoparticles and to introduce pH-responsive features and results suggest that these album in nanoparticles may hold great potentials as ABZ carriers for cancer therapy.



Preparation of sub-100 nm human serum albumin nanospheres using a pH-coacervation method.

Human serum albumin nanospheres of about 100 nm diameter were prepared using a pH-coacervation method whereby acetone was added to an HSA solution (pH 9.0) and cross-linked by glutaraldehyde.

Characterization of Microcapsules of β-Lactoglobulin Formed by Chemical Cross Linking and Heat Setting

Electron microscopic observations reveal that these beads have a porous structure suitable for entrapment and release of drug molecules and it is shown that the enzymatic degradability of these microcapsules can be varied by adding a suitable polysaccharide along with the protein before cross-linking.

A Study on the Preparation and Anti-Tumor Efficacy of Bovine Serum Albumin Nanospheres Containing 5-Fluorouracil

The anti-tumor efficacy of drug-loaded nanosphere was investigated in DLA tumor-induced mice models, and the percentage tumor inhibition was relatively higher in animals treated with nanosphere-bound drug than with free drug.
