Development of Surrogate Spinal Cords for the Evaluation of Electrode Arrays Used in Intraspinal ImplantsDownload
A surrogate spinal cord was developed to test the mechanical stability of electrode arrays for intraspinal implants. The mechanical and surface properties of candidate materials were tested. The elastic modulus was characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis. Forces required to indent the...
Phosphorylation status of 72 kDa MMP-2 determines its structure and activity in response to peroxynitriteDownload
Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is a key intra- and extra-cellular protease which contributes to several oxidative stress related pathologies. A molecular understanding of 72 kDa MMP-2 activity, directly mediated by S-glutathiolation of its cysteine residues in the presence of peroxynitrite...
This study focuses on the synthesis process of gelatin-shelled microbubbles and their characterization. A new method to synthesize gelatin-shelled microbubbles was described. Briefly, Traut’s reagent was used to thiolate gelatin molecules; then sonication forces were placed at the water-air...
Transglutaminase catalyzed amination of food protein and peptides with biogenic amines: studies on functionality and antioxidant activityDownload
There is a growing demand for innovative and affordable technologies in the food industry to modify ingredient functionality and to ensure product safety. Proteins are essential components in many food systems, and their structure can be modified in a variety of ways to control and improve...
