    Gelatin nanoparticles, cross-linked by a mixture of a water soluble carbodiimide (CDI) and N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) as a non-toxic cross-linking system, was prepared. The conventional two step desolvation method with acetone as the non-solvent was used. The mean size and size distribution as...

    Ciliate Euplotes octocarinatus centrin (EoCen) is a member of the EF-hand superfamily of calcium-binding proteins. It has been proven, using Tb as a fluorescence probe, that EoCen has four calcium-binding sites. The sensitized emission arises from nonradiative energy transfer between the three...

    Cross-linking in hard gelatin capsule shells is a common cause of slowdown in Tier I dissolution testing; however, direct addition of purified pepsin to the medium, as described in USP <711>, may not always be a solution if the medium contains sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). The author develops a...
