  • Chain cleavage of bioinspired bacterial membranes photoinduced by eosin decyl ester

    Moreira, Lucas Gontijo; Almeida Junior, Alexandre Mendes; Camacho, Sabrina Alessio Autor UNESP; Estevão, Bianca Martins; Oliveira Junior, Osvaldo Novais; Aoki, Pedro Henrique Benites Autor UNESP (Langmuir, 2020) [Artigo]
    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is promising for bacterial inactivation since cellular internalization of photosensitizers (PS) is not crucial for the treatment effectiveness. Photoinduced damage in the lipid envelope may already ...
  • Molecular-level effects on cell membrane models to explain the phototoxicity of gold shell-isolated nanoparticles to cancer cells

    Camacho, Sabrina Aléssio; Kobal, Mirella Boaro Autor UNESP; Almeida Junior, Alexandre Mendes; Toledo, Karina Alves de Autor UNESP; Oliveira Junior, Osvaldo Novais de; Aoki, Pedro Henrique Benites Autor UNESP (Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 2020) [Artigo]
    Metallic nanoparticles are promising agents for photothermal cancer therapy (PTT) owing to their photostability and efficient light-to-heat conversion, but their possible aggregation remains an issue. In this paper, we ...
  • The protective effect of Artepillin C against lipid oxidation on simplified model membranes

    Pazin, Wallance Moreira Autor UNESP; Ruiz, Gilia Cristine Marques Autor UNESP; Ito, Amando Siuiti; Constantino, Carlos José Leopoldo Autor UNESP; Aoki, Pedro Henrique Benites Autor UNESP; Santos, Marcelo Jose dos (Journal of Molecular Liquids, 2021) [Artigo]
    Brazilian green propolis is a well-known therapeutic product, commonly used in folk medicine. Artepillin C is the major compound of propolis and has received considerable attention owing to its lipophilic affinity and ...
