mon·o·lay·ers

(mon'ō-lā'ĕrz),
1. Films, one molecule thick, formed on water (or other surfaces) by certain substances, such as proteins and fatty acids, characterized by molecules containing some atom groupings that are soluble in water and other atom groupings that are insoluble in water.
2. A confluent sheet of cells, one cell deep, growing on a surface in a cell culture.

In general, the miscibility of the mixed polymer monolayers is determined from the plot of the mean areas at a constant surface pressure as a function of composition of one component in the binary mixture, lithe plot obeys a linear relationship, i.e., the surface areas are additive, the mixed films can be regarded as an ideal mixture or as an immiscible mixture.

The liquid exfoliation can generate large quantities of monolayer dispersions, but relatively small flakes limit their use in electronics or photonics applications.
Therefore, the aim of this current study is to evaluate effect of the detoxification herbal formula on transport of indole alkaloids in Caco-2 cells monolayer. The specific objectives of the current studies include the following: (1) to study the bidirectional transport characteristics of indole alkaloids between GM extract and GE extract in Caco-2 cells monolayer; (2) to evaluate the effect of GM with or without verapamil (P-gp inhibitor) on transport of indole alkaloids; (3) to investigate the effect of GM in the absence or presence of ciclosporin (P-gp or MRP2 inhibitor) on transport of indole alkaloids.
