Dictionary » L » Liposomes



synthetic, relatively uniform bilayer lipid membrane-bound vesicles formed by emulsification of cell membranes in dilute salt solutions. Liposomes are being developed as an approach for drug delivery in which relatively toxic drugs, e.g., amphotericin b, doxorubicin, and pentavalent antimony, are wrapped inside a liposome and tagged with an organ-specific antibody.

Re: Irrefutable Facts Against Evolution

... that it is not difficult to do so. If you drop phospholipids into water, it will spontaneously associate into double-membrane structures called liposomes. Fox proposed a mechanism for the formation of protobionts from liposomes.

Re: Lipofectin/Labfectin lethality towards insect cells

... amplification. But when I knew and use polietilenimine (Jet-Pei) transfections didn´t fail. It ´s easier to use and more cheap. But returning to liposomes I´m writing of memory but supervivence was related with lipofectamine concentration in the mix and I used 4ul of it in the transfection mix. ...

i want information about choromosomes

... or viruses if the change is done in the germ line then the particular organism isn't affected but its future generations are you could also use liposomes but again that's very hard to make the change in germ line will be easier but still its considerably hard if you make use of bacterial cells ...

Re: Trap for viruses...

It's already been done before by modifying red blood cells instead of liposomes. And like all research, don't expect breakthrough treatments for at least a decade...

co-transfection- how does it work?

... of this and how does that work? When is this true? And how much can I trust it? Is it that if you use a method like lipofectamin you create small liposomes that contains a lot of plasmid and that it is very likely that both plasmid is in this liposomes? And therefore get into the cell? In that ...
