Phospholipid Complexation of General Anesthetics in Fluid Bilayers
Türkyılmaz, Serhan; Chen, Wen-Hua; Regen, Steven L. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-04-20)
A nearest-neighbor recogntion analysis has been performed in cholesterol-rich and cholesterol-poor liposomes derived from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) in the presence of varying concentrations of chloroform. This analysis has yielded a funamentally new, molecular-level view of the interaction of general anesthetics with lipid bilayers, which may be relevant to their biological action; that is, DPPC Forms 1:1 complexes with CHCl3 in both membranes in the fluid bilayer state.
Physicochemical and microstructural characterization of gum tragacanth added whey protein based films
Tonyali, Bade; Cikrikci, SEVİL; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2018-03-01)
Edible films of gum tragacanth (GT) with whey protein were fabricated to see how the incorporation of GT influenced whey protein based film properties. Whey protein isolate (WPI) was replaced with GT at different ratios as 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2% of WPI. Optical, mechanical, permeability and microstructural properties, as well as moisture sorption and solubility behavior of films were measured. The findings indicated that combination of WPI and GT in film formulation led to less strength, more flexible, less sol...
Physico-Chemical Changes of Composite Whey Protein Hydrogels in Simulated Gastric Fluid Conditions
Özel, Barış; GRUNIN, Leonid; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2018-09-12)
Polysaccharide blended whey protein isolate (WPI) hydrogels were developed for the delivery of black carrot (Daucus carota) concentrate as bioactive agent in simulated gastric fluid (SGF). Pectin (PC), gum tragacanth (GT), and xanthan gum (XG) were blended as additional polymers to modulate the release characteristics of the WPI hydrogels. Experiments showed that sole whey protein (C), XG, and GT blended hydrogels possessed restricted release profiles 67%, 61%, and 67%, respectively, whereas PC samples atta...
Physicochemical and Antimicrobial Properties of Oleoresin Capsicum Nanoemulsions Formulated with Lecithin and Sucrose Monopalmitate
Akbas, Elif; Söyler, Ulviye Betül; Öztop, Halil Mecit (2019-05-01)
Oleoresin capsicum (OC) is an extract of chili pepper containing the active agent capsaicin. In this study, OC-loaded nanoemulsions were prepared by microfluidization and stabilized with sucrose monopalmitate (SMP) and lecithin. The difference in size and distribution of droplets determined the nanoemulsion behavior mainly due to the interaction of emulsifiers between oil and aqueous phase. The hydrophilic interaction between SMP and aqueous phase and the hydrophobic interaction between lecithin and oil pha...
