The interaction of horseradish peroxidase (HRP), an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrogen peroxide hydrolysis, with Langmuir monolayers of lipids is investigated. Surface Pressure-Area (p-A) isotherms of HRP-dipalmitoylph I501 - COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN RAW NATURAL osphatidylglycerol (DPPG) mixed monolayers were studied, by using several RUBBERS FROM TWO NEW CLONES OF IAC SERIES techniques of enzyme-lipid co-spreading.

All binders studied This study investigated the elastic properties of the as-cast Ti-10Mo-xNb (x showed a good compatibility with these suspensions in the range of 0.5 and = 3, 6 and 9) alloys recently developed. The Young’s moduli were determined by ultrasonic-pulse method. The density of each alloy was measured by the Archimedes principle. The densities of Ti-10Mo-xNb alloys increased with the concentration of niobium. The moduli of the Ti10Mo-6Nb and Ti-10Mo-9Nb alloys were similar while the Young’s modulus of Ti-10Mo-3Nb was lower than those of Ti and Ti-6Al-4V.

The Ti alloy presents advantages in relation to the other Ti alloys because its low modulus of elasticity and all the used Blends of PHB and LDPE with and without 5 wt% of OPW were developed elements are biocompatible. By using hot rolling, at 1230o C, and swaging and characterized. The mechanical results showed that the addition of OPW (radial forging), at 700ºC, it was possible to obtain a good homogeneity and increased the tensile strength and Young´s modulus but decreased the elongation at break of the. DSC showed that the addition of OPW caused a small decrease in Tg. The incorporation of OPW increased the mean values for the MFI. OPW altered the morphology of LDPE by decreasing the phase separation. In biodegradation experiments, the loss of mass by the was greater in the presence than in the absence of OPW.

On the other hand, the kinetic profiles of BIOCOMPATIBLE MAGNETIC FLUIDS BIODISTRIBUTION release of carboplatin indicate extremely slower release rates of the drug under the conditions examined. This suggests that the complex formed when Geraldo José da Silva (UnB), Francisco Augusto tourinho (UnB), Adriana carboplatin molecules are bound to crystals of CFC can be more stable due Pereira Ibaldo (IFSC-USP/UnB) and Jerome Depeyrot (UnB) to a stronger affinity between their functional groups oppositely charged.
