The adsorption equilibrium and kinetic behavior exhibited
by β-lactoglobulin at silanized silicon surfaces of varying
hydrophobicity were examined using ellipsometry. Adsorption
equilibrium results were used to construct adsorption
isotherms; the adsorbed mass of β-lactoglobulin was observed
to increase with increasing surface hydrophobicity, within a
defined range of hydrophobicity. Adsorption kinetics...
Ellipsometry was used to study the effects of surface energetics
and temperature on the equilibrium adsorptive behavior exhibited by
β-lactoglobulin. β-Lactoglobulin isotherms at 25, 37, and 55°C were
constructed for this purpose. The surfaces of acrylic, polycarbonate,
polyester, glass, and #304 stainless steel were contacted with protein
solutions of varying...
The relative enrichment of skin sebaceous gland lipids with deuterium-labeled
α-tocopherol was compared with plasma enrichment to evaluate the
delivery of vitamin E to skin. For the first week of this study, each subject
consumed a daily dose of deuterated vitamin E (150 mg of an equimolar mixture of
Zora Neale Hurston was a Black American writer
during the period of the Harlem Renaissance. The
purpose of this study is to show that three of her four
novels form a protracted discussion of a particular
type of freedom which was of especial interest to
Hurston. The study seeks to...
A study was done on the zoogeography of species of oceanic
shrimp in the North Pacific from 22°N to 56°N and from 124°W to
145°E, using samples of shrimp collected from 1954 to 1969. These
collections were made during the following cruises: John R. Manning
Cruise 22, and the Hugh...
