In vitro and in vivo characterisation of a novel peptide delivery system: amphiphilic polyelectrolyte–salmon calcitonin nanocomplexes. (2010)
Journal Article
CHENG, W.-P., THOMPSON, C., RYAN, S.M., AGUIRRE, T., TETLEY, L. and BRAYDEN, D.J. 2010. In vitro and in vivo characterisation of a novel peptide delivery system: amphiphilic polyelectrolyte–salmon calcitonin nanocomplexes. Journal of controlled release [online], 147(2), pages 289-297. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jconrel.2010.07.128

The cationic peptide, salmon calcitonin (sCT) was complexed with the cationic amphiphilic polyelectrolyte, poly(allyl)amine, grafted with palmitoyl and quaternary ammonium moieties at pH 5.0 and 7.4 to yield particulates (sCT-QPa). The complexes were... Read More about In vitro and in vivo characterisation of a novel peptide delivery system: amphiphilic polyelectrolyte–salmon calcitonin nanocomplexes..

The degradation of microcystin-LR using doped visible light absorbing photocatalysts. (2010)
Journal Article
GRAHAM, D., KISCH, H., LAWTON, L.A. and ROBERTSON, P.K.J. 2010. The degradation of microcystin-LR using doped visible light absorbing photocatalysts. Chemosphere [online], 78(9), pages 1182-1185. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2009.12.003

Microcystins are one of the primary hepatotoxic cyanotoxins released from cyanobacteria. The presence of these compounds in water has resulted in the death of both humans and domestic and wild animals. Although microcystins are chemically stable tita...
