Nanoparticles Suitable for BCAA Isolation Can Serve for Use in Magnetic Lipoplex-Based Delivery System for L, I, V, or R-rich Antimicrobial Peptides
This paper investigates the synthesis of paramagnetic nanoparticles, which are able to bind branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)—leucine, valine, and isoleucine and, thus, serve as a tool for their isolation. Further, by ...
Novel Vancomycin-Peptide Conjugate as Potent Antibacterial Agent against Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
(Dove Press, 2018-11-01)
Background: Increase in vancomycin (Van)-resistant bacterial strains including vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) and lack of new effective antibiotics have become a formidable health problem. Materials and ...
Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA Growth and Biofilm Formation after Treatment with Antibiotics and SeNPs
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a dangerous pathogen resistant to -lactam antibiotics. Due to its resistance, it is difficult to manage the infections caused by this strain. We examined this issue in ...
The Composites of Graphene Oxide with Metal or Semimetal Nanoparticles and Their Effect on Pathogenic Microorganisms
The present experiment describes a synthesis process of composites based on graphene oxide, which was tested as a carrier for composites of metal- or metalloid-based nanoparticles (Cu, Zn, Mn, Ag, AgP, Se) and subsequently ...
Antibacterial activity of composite of graphene oxide with silver nanoparticles
(Mendel University in Brno, 2017-12-31)
Looking for strategies against the development of antibiotic resistance is a major global object of interest for the public health. This work deals with synthesis of antimicrobial composites of graphene oxide (GO) with ...
Composite of graphene oxide with zinc oxide nanoparticles as an antimicrobial agent against pathogenic microorganisms
The synthesis process of composites based on graphene oxide is described and tested as a carrier of zinc oxide nanoparticles and subsequently tested as an antimicrobial agent for some bacterial strains (Staphylococcus ...
