## Characterization of liposomes coated with S-layer proteins from lactobacilli

The stability of liposomes coated with S-layer proteins from Lactobacillus brevis and Lactobacillus kefir was analyzed as a previous stage to the development of a vaccine vehicle for oral administration. The interactions of the different S-layer proteins with positively charged liposomes prepared with soybean lecithin or dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine were studied by means of the variation of the Z potential at different protein-lipid ratios, showing that both proteins were able to attach in a greater extent to the surface of soybean lecithin liposomes. The capacity of these particles to retain carboxyfluorescein or calcein by exposure to bile salts, pancreatic extract, pH change and after a thermal shock showed that both S-layer proteins increased the stability of the liposomes in the same magnitude. The non-glycosylated protein from L. brevis protects more efficiently the liposomes at pH 7 than those from L. kefir even without treatment with glutaraldehyde.

We perform two-dimensional axisymmetric hydrodynamic simulations of matter Mixing in aspherical core-collapse supernova explosions of a 16.3 $M_{\odot}$ Star with a compact hydrogen envelope. Observations of SN 1987A have provided Evidence that $^{56}$Ni synthesized by explosive nucleosynthesis is m...

We introduce the general mathematical notion of "s-functions" as Integral linear combinations of poly-logarithms. 2-functions arise as disk Amplitudes in Calabi-Yau D-brane backgrounds and form the simplest and most Important special class. We describe s-functions in terms of the action of the Frobe...

We study dynamics of probe D-branes in $(d+2)$-dimensional background with General semi-locality. The background is characterized by a parameter $\eta$ And is conformal to $AdS_{2}\times\mathbb{R}^{d}$. We discuss thermodynamics of The probe D-branes and find that the entropy density is vanishing in...
