A semipermeable membrane is a type of biological or synthetic, polymeric membrane that will allow certain molecules or ions to pass through it by diffusion-or occasionally by more specialized processes of facilitated diffusion, passive transport or active transport.[dubious - discuss] The rate of passage depends on the pressure, concentration, and temperature of the molecules or solutes on either side, as well as the permeability of the membrane to each solute. Depending on the membrane and the solute, permeability may depend on solute size, solubility, properties, or chemistry. How the membrane is constructed to be selective in its permeability will determine the rate and the permeability. Many natural and synthetic materials thicker than a membrane are also semipermeable. One example of this is the thin film on the inside of the egg. Note that a semipermeable membrane is not the same as a selectively permeable membrane. Semipermeable membrane describes a membrane that allows some particles to ...

A gas permeable membrane divides a reactor vessel into a liquid compartment and a gas compartment. A biofilm is grown on the gas permeable membrane on the liquid side of the membrane. Teh gas permeable membrane is supported by the structure of the membrane itself. The biofilm is chosen from bacteria to degrade cetain pollutants by means of anaerobic fermentation, aerobic heterotrophic oxidation, dehalogenation, and hydrocarbon oxidation. This is accomplished by means of oxygen and alternate gases (i.e., methane) through the gas permeable membrane to certain bacteria growing on the liquid side of the gas permeable membrane.
Diffusion is the net movement of particles of a gas or a solute from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration along a ocncentration gradient through a partially permeable membrane.. Partially permeable - allowing only certain substances to pass through .. Partially permeable membrane - a membrane which only allows certain substances to pass through.. Osmosis - the net movemetn of water particles from an area of high concentration (of water NOT solute) to an area of low concentration (of water NOT solute) along a concentration gradient through a partially permeable membrane.. In diffusion, the partially permeable membrane only allows gas particles or particles of a solute to go through.. In osmosis, the partially permeable membrane only allows water particles to go through.. The concentration outside your cells need to stay the same for them to work properly. Changes in the concentration of solutions outside the cells may cause water to move into or out of the cells by ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Removal of lipopolysaccharide and reactive Oxygen species using sialic acid immobilized polysulfone dialyzer. AU - Chang, Jung Jhih. AU - Lin, Po Jub. AU - Yang, Ming Chien. AU - Chien, Chiang-Ting. PY - 2009/12/1. Y1 - 2009/12/1. N2 - Sialic acid (N-acetylneuraminic acid, NANA) was covalently immobilized onto the surface of a polysulfone (PSF) hollow fiber membrane. Prior to the immobilization, the surface of PSF was treated with ozone, followed by grafting with acrylic acid, and then the esterification of NANA. The surface concentration of NANA was determined by 2-thiobarbituric acid (TBA) test. Hemocompatibility, the capability of suppressing oxidative stress, and clearance of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from the resulting hollow fiber membrane were evaluated. The results show that by immobilizing NANA onto PSF hollow fiber, the adhesion of platelet was reduced, while both APTT and PT were little affected. Furthermore, oxidative stress was suppressed by NANA-immobilized PSF ...
A method of treating a membrane comprises the steps of providing a membrane with surfaces that define a plurality of pores extending through the membrane. Providing a dispersion of oleophobic fluoropolymer solids. Stabilizing the dispersion with a stabilizing agent. Diluting the dispersion with a wetting agent. Wetting surfaces which define the pores in the membrane with the diluted and stabilized dispersion. Removing the wetting agent and the stabilizing agent from the membrane. Coalescing the oleophobic fluoropolymer solids of the dispersion on surfaces that define pores in the membrane. A composite membrane comprises a porous membrane having a plurality of interconnecting pores extending through the membrane and made from a material which tends to absorb oils and certain contaminating surfactants. A coating is disposed on surfaces of the nodes and fibrils defining the interconnecting passages in the membrane. The coating comprises oleophobic fluoropolymer solids coalesced on surfaces of the nodes and

The sugar part of our biomembranes are as crucial to our health as our DNA, and yet we know almost nothing about it," said Virgil Percec, a professor of chemistry in the University of Pennsylvania School of Arts and Sciences.. Part of the reason cell membrane sugars, called glycans, are so poorly understood is that scientists were unable to accurately model them until last year, when Percecs lab devised a way of programming artificial membranes with a precise number and spatial arrangement of sugars.. Now, as a proof-of-concept for their new model, the team has tested its interactions with galectin-8, a cell signaling protein that, when mutated, may contribute to rheumatoid arthritis. Gal-8 is one of a large family of growth-regulatory proteins the team is testing their model against. By modifying a single building block in Gal-8s structure, exactly as nature does in a portion of the population, the researchers dramatically impaired its ability to communicate with the artificial membrane, ...
The oxygen concentration in the culture medium can be measured electrochemically and continuously for at least 24 hours. Gold is the choice of working electrode because it is a stable and inert material to electrochemically reduce oxygen. Gold wire encased in epoxy is the working electrode. It has a fine opening at one end exposing the cross-section of the gold wire to the electrolyte. The opening is protected by an oxygen permeable membrane resistant to cell attachment and protein aggregation. PTFE and cellulose membrane (dialysis membrane) will be investigated for their applicability to the current set-up. PTFE is cheap, hydrophobic and oxygen permeable while dialysis membrane have different pore sizes to give different diffusivity for different sizes of molecules. The selectively permeable membrane is held at the opening with an O-ring encapsulating a small volume of electrolyte. A silver rod is the reference electrode placed in proximity to the working electrode. The current generated by ...

A membrane-based assay device for detecting the presence or quantity of an analyte residing in a test sample is provided. The device utilizes time-resolved fluorescence to detect the signals generated by excited fluorescent labels. Because the labels can have relatively long emission lifetime, short-lived background interference can be practically eliminated through delayed fluorescence detection. In addition, the resulting fluorescent reader can have a simple and inexpensive design. For instance, in one embodiment, the reader can utilize a silicon photodiode and a pulsed light-emitting diode (LED) to accurately excite labels and detect fluorescence on a membrane-based assay device without requiring the use of expensive components, such as monochromators or narrow emission band width optical filters.

AU - Nakamura, Yuri. AU - Gibson, Iain R.. AU - Osaka, Akiyoshi. PY - 2010/1/1. Y1 - 2010/1/1. N2 - Chitosan-γ- glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS)tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) hybrid membranes were prepared by the solgel method. The effects of Si(IV) released from them on cell proliferation and differentiation were examined in terms of cell metabolic activity and the alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity of MG63 osteoblastic cells. The amount of Si(IV) released from the hybrid membranes increased with the TEOS content. The released Si(IV) inhibited cell proliferation but promoted cell differentiation. Thus, the osteocompatibility of the chitosan hybrid membranes in the chitosanGPTMSTEOS system can be controlled by the amount of Si(IV) released from them when they are applied to cell culture..

Nature s Engines and Engineering. Introduction. In the past few decades, extensive biochemical research has revealed the cell to possess a remarkable array of molecular machines, from flagella to replisomes to ATP synthases. These machines are machines in a very real sense: they are composed of discrete protein components that interact with each other because of some input (e.g., energy in the form of ATP), thereby producing biological function. Indeed, the only real difference between molecular machines in the cell and man-made machines is that the former self-assemble. How did these biological molecular machines originate? It is thought by most biologists that these machines evolved through a Darwinian pathway, with pre-cursor protein components being co-opted into new roles and associating with other proteins, gradually adding to the complexity of the system. Gene duplication, scaffolding, and other mechanisms would also play a pivotal role in the origin of these machines. Yet we can take ...
Abstract: : Purpose: The objective of the current study was to examine the role of media volume, feed, gas exchange and incubation time on encapsulated cell performance in vitro and in vivo. Methods: Two genetically modified mammalian cell lines (NTC-201-10 and NTC-201-6A) secreting low and high levels of CNTF were encapsulated within a polymer membrane and placed in holding packages containing either 2, 20 or 40 mL of culture media. The media in the 2 mL volume package was replaced weekly and exposed to 95% humidity and 5% CO 2 . Packages containing 20 and 40 mL of media were closed to the environment with no air headspace and no media replenishmet following closure. All packages were maintained at 37°C for 2-weeks, 1, 2, 3 and 4 months post-encapsulation. At each time point, some of the encapsulated capsules from each treatment group were evaluated for CNTF output and cell viability, and some were surgically implanted into the vitreous of individual eyes of rabbits. After 1 month, the devices ...
