Drug-eluting stents and other medical devices containing idarubicin (or an analog) could be administered prior to or following a vascular procedure like angioplasty.
The researchers previously described their ‘recycling’ method for use with aromatic compounds. Now, they have rendered the process enantioselective using an asymmetric bidentate phosphine ligand to produce scaffolds with high enantiomeric purity.
In essence, the use of the phosphine ligand helps form a chiral center in a complex product that is otherwise costly or impossible to create.
The gene was identified by studying more than 500 different maize lines. The researchers mapped single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) correlating to early or late flowering traits. A large concentration of such SNPs was located in GRMZM2G171659, a transcription factor on chromosome 3. The gene was of previously unknown function in corn.
Bone Tissue Regeneration System That Provides Spatial and Temporal Control Over the Release of Growth Factors
To control dissolution order, and ultimately, delivery of the biologically active molecules, multiple distinct layers are deposited on the β-TCP scaffold. Each layer may contain one or more active biomolecules and is designed to dissolve at a separate rate. As the matrix material gradually breaks down, the growth factors are delivered sequentially. This provides temporal control of growth factor signaling, thereby directing the activities of associated cells, to enable the growth of new bone tissue.
