Layer-by-layer assembly of gentamicin-based antibacterial multilayers on Ti alloy

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2019Source: Materials LettersAuthor(s): Li-Jun He, Jian-Chao Hao, Lin Dai, Rong-Chang Zeng, Shuo-Qi LiAbstractTo reduce the bacteria-associated infection for the Ti implant, an antibacterial coating composed of gentamicin (GS) and polyacrylic acid (PAA) was constructed using layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly technique. The surface morphology and chemical composition of the obtained multilayers were characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The plate counting method was employed to evaluate the antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Escherichia coli (E. Coli) of the coating. The results revealed that the drug loaded multilayers could inhibit the growth of bacteria on the Ti substrate.

Tin oxide (SnO2) nanoparticles were synthesised using various surfactants of different charges (n-cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide, sodium dodecyl sulphate and TRITON X-100) by the co-precipitation method. The synthesised nanomaterials were characterised using different techniques to study their structural, surface morphological, optical and anti-bacterial activities. X-ray diffraction patterns revealed the formation of a tetragonal rutile structure in pure and surfactants-aided SnO2 nanoparticles and the results show good agreement with JCPDS data [41-1445]. The crystallite size of SnO2 nanoparticles was found to decrease...

In this study, we sequenced and characterized the goose-type lysozyme gene, termed as BsLysG, from the Chinese black sleeper (Bostrychus sinensis). The BsLysG encodes 196 amino acids and contains a soluble bacterial lytic transglycosylases domain, three catalytic residues (Glu72, Asp85 and Asp102) and the GLMQ motif (Gly97, Leu98, Met99 and Gln100). No signal peptide was observed in the BsLysG protein. The genomic DNA of BsLysG contains five exons and four introns. The sequence analyses showed that the BsLysG exhibits high similarity with LysG from other fishes. Phylogenetic analyses showed that the BsLysG is clustered tog...

In this study a novel and smart multi-functional hydrogel (MFH) was synthesized from N, N dimethyl acrylamide (DMAAm), gelatin, citric acid (CA) and pomegranate extract (PE) for instant and easy monitoring of the color change in MFH due to changes in medium conditions such as pH and temperature. MFH was utilized as food packaging material, equipped with the developed properties. MFH was synthesized with a redox polymerization technique in film form on petri dishes. Mechanical and water resistance properties of MFH were improved by CA and N, N, methylenebisacrylamide, while PE was used to gain antimicrobial, antioxidant and...

Abstract BACKGROUND: A porous Ti6Al4V implant that is manufactured using selective laser melting (SLM) has broad potential applications in the field of orthopaedic implants. The pore structure of the SLM porous Ti6Al4V implant allows for cell migration and osteogenic differentiation, which is favorable for bone ingrowth and osseointegration. However, it is unclear whether the pore structure and partially melted Ti6Al4V particles on a SLM porous Ti6Al4V implant will increase bacterial adhesion and, perhaps, the risk of implant-related infection. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is there more bacterial adhesion and colo...

In this study, 6-deoxy-6-arginine modified chitosan (DAC), was synthesized and characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and elemental analysis. The arginine was grafted onto C6 groups of chitosan. Antibacterial activity of DAC against gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) and gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) were investigated at concentration between 0.02 mg/mL and 10 mg/mL. Cell viability assessment was estimated in vitro with Caco-2 and L929 cells. Water solubility...

Abstract One-pot synthesis of caprylic, lauric and palmitic acid mono- and diesters of trehalose was catalyzed by the lipase Fermase CALB™ 10000. An optimized molar conversion of 35% of trehalose to its palmitate esters was obtained in acetone at 60 °C with a trehalose:palmitic acid molar ratio of 1:5 in 4 h. Trehalose fatty acid esters (THFAE) were purified by column chromatography and characterized using TLC, HPTLC, HR-MS, ATR-FTIR, and differential scanning calorimetry. THFAE were studied for their antimicrobial potential against four bacterial, and two fungal species. Trehalose monolaurate ...

In this study, the obtained IC50 concentration of 51.25 μg/mL exhibits significant anticancer activity against A549 cells than other tested concentrations because of the release of zinc ions, which induce the cell apoptosis. Furthermore, studies on cell cycle validate that ZnO NPs arrest the cell cycle at the sub-G1 phase of A549 cells. These results suggest the utility of phytogenic ZnO NPs for various biomedical applications.Graphical abstract
