Metabolic studies of Catharanthus roseus hairy root cultures by phosphorus-31 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy
The regulation of primary metabolism and induction of secondary metabolism in Catharanthus roseus hairy root cultures were studied using noninvasive in vivo NMR spectroscopy. A micro-perfusion system was first developed ...
Laboratory development of the surfactant/foam process for aquifer remediation
The research presented was used to develop the surfactant/foam process for aquifer remediation. The surfactant/foam method was designed to address the problem of removing dense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPLs) spread ...
Modulation of cell morphology and function using synthetic biodegradable polymers
Synthetic biodegradable poly(DL-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) has been fabricated into thin films for use as scaffolds for cell transplantation and guided tissue regeneration. We evaluated the ability of PLGA films to ...
Interactions of the platelet GP Ib-IX-V complex with immobilized von Willebrand factor under flow conditions
Platelets play key roles in physiology, such as the arrest of bleeding following vascular injury, and in pathology, such as mural arterial thrombosis. The initial step in both processes is platelet adhesion to von Willebrand ...
In vivo phosphorus-31 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study cellular metabolism
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has emerged as a valuable tool for engineers for noninvasive, real-time studies of cellular metabolism. Two applications of NMR for studying cellular metabolism were investigated in ...
