• Because of several disadvantages concerning serial subculturing such as high costs, time, genetic drift and possible contamination, several cryoprotective strategies were tested in this study to cryopreserve these algal species. (awi.de)
  • The cause of this problem was a very low permeability of the blood-brain barrier for cryoprotective agents. (cryonics.org)
  • Cryoprotective agents (CPAs) function, in part, to lower the probability of intracellular ice formation. (planer.com)
  • This thesis aims to examine the critical molecular properties that lead to good cryoprotective performance and use this knowledge to test novel non-toxic compounds which can be optimized to use as cryoprotectants (CPAs). (edu.au)
  • This thesis presents a systematic investigation of these important properties, for both traditional CPAs and novel compounds with cryoprotective potential. (edu.au)
  • As reported by the BBC, the technique involves taking tiny slivers of tissue containing primordial follicles, which are then mixed with cryoprotective agents, slowly reduced in temperature to -196 C and stored under liquid nitrogen. (leeds.ac.uk)
  • Quantitative investigations on the effects of exposure durations to the combined cryoprotective agents on mouse oocyte vitrification procedures. (nih.gov)
  • Slow freezing seems to preserve ovarian content better and therefore the vitrification of tissues needs to be improved by means of cryoprotective agents and carrying devices. (publish.csiro.au)
  • Alkylating agents cause side effects because they also interfere with cell division in certain healthy tissues where cell division is frequent, such as the gastrointestinal tract. (lls.org)
  • Pro-inflammatory agents accumulate during donor liver cold preservation: a study on increased adhesion molecule expression and abrogation by curcumin in cultured endothelial. (naver.com)
  • The influence of different freezing procedures and different cryoprotective agents on the immunological capacity of frozen-stored lymphocytes. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The harness includes a first tube for removing at least one blood component from the bag while retaining another component, a second tube for moving a cryoprotective solution into and out of the bag, a third tube for conducting a wash solution into and out of the bag, and identification on the bag. (google.es)
  • I witnessed the infusion of a rabbit brain through its carotid arteries with a fixative agent called glutaraldehyde, which binds proteins together into a solid gel. (michaelshermer.com)
  • Previously, most work on improving post-thaw viability has hinged on limiting the physical damage of freezing by adding cryoprotective agents and optimizing cooling rates. (mit.edu)
