There is some evidence that covalently
bound ceramides could be among the ceramidase substrates.
bound azobenzenes show extremely nice switching behavior combined with a suitable structure [8, 9], they have the problem of being more toxic and a covalent binding is generally a more complex surface coating procedure.
(3) However, the decomposition temperature of film cured with PIH is higher than that of the corresponding film because the covalently
crosslinking density is increased by the reaction between the hydroxyl group of PUA and the NCO group of PIH.
However, the covalently
crosslinked ALG-H hydrogels overcome this shortcoming, and they are found to be more suitable as drug carriers for controlled release than calcium alginate hydrogel.
When seeded on top of two-dimensional covalently
cross-linked gels, mesenchymal stem cells spread and pulled on the material differently depending on how stiff it was.
The active toxic A-chain is covalently
linked via a disulfide bond to the sugar binding B-chain, this bond being biologically important as the individual chains are biologically inactive.
The cationic polymers are not substantially covalently
bound to the superabsorbent polymer particles.
Amit Gupta and colleagues found that when the nanoparticles were excited by an RF field the temperature rise was the same whether the sensors were mixed with the nanoparticles or covalently
bonded to them.
As a result, the coating is covalently
attached to the substrate, giving superb adhesion and durability.
ABSTRACT--Precursor gels containing covalently
incorporated lead thiolate complexes have been prepared using the bifunctional linker molecule, 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane along with typical sol-gel processing techniques.
Called the covalently
linked immunomagnetic separation/ adenosine triphosphate (Cov-IMS/ATP) technique, the portable process uses magnetic beads linked covalently
to antibodies that bind FIB.
It is also believed to decrease ccc DNA (covalently
closed circular DNA, which is a template DNA for viral replication) in the liver cells.
