Atomic force microscopy study of ultrafiltration membranes: solute interactions and fouling in pulp and paper processing

Richard Bowen W, Stoton JAG, Doneva TA Surf Interface Anal. 2002;33(1):7–13 Atomic force microscopy (AFM) has been used to quantify directly the interaction (adhesion) of cellubiose and cellulose with two polymeric ultrafiltration membranes of similar molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) but different materials (ES404 and EM006, PCI Membranes, UK). Membrane ES404 is made from polyethersulphone alone … Continue reading Atomic force microscopy study of ultrafiltration membranes: solute interactions and fouling in pulp and paper processing



Atomic force microscopy study of cellulose surface interaction controlled by cellulose binding domains

Nigmatullin R, Lovitt R, Wright C, Linder M, Nakari-Setälä T, Gama M Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2004 May 15;35(2):125–35 Colloidal probe microscopy has been used to study the interaction between model cellulose surfaces and the role of cellulose binding domain (CBD), peptides specifically binding to cellulose, in interfacial interaction of cellulose surfaces modified with CBDs. … Continue reading Atomic force microscopy study of cellulose surface interaction controlled by cellulose binding domains



Characterization of a ceramic ultrafiltration membrane in different operational states after its use in a heavy-metal ion removal process

Llanos J, Williams PM, Cheng S, Rogers D, Wright C, Pérez A, Cañizares P Water Res. 2010 Jun;44(11):3522–30 In the present study, the atomic force microscopy (AFM) technique has been used to characterize a Carbosep M5 ceramic membrane(MWCO=10kDa, TiO(2)-ZrO(2) active layer). This membrane was previously used in a polymer supported ultrafiltration (PSU) process to recover … Continue reading Characterization of a ceramic ultrafiltration membrane in different operational states after its use in a heavy-metal ion removal process



The co-translocation of ERp57 and calreticulin determines the immunogenicity of cell death

Panaretakis T, Joza N, Modjtahedi N, Tesniere A, Vitale I, Durchschlag M, Fimia GM, Kepp O, Piacentini M, Froehlich KU, van Endert P, Zitvogel L, Madeo F, Kroemer G Cell Death Differ. 2008 Sep;15(9):1499–509 The exposure of calreticulin (CRT) on the plasma membrane can precede anthracycline-induced apoptosis and is required for cell death to be … Continue reading The co-translocation of ERp57 and calreticulin determines the immunogenicity of cell death
