Asymptote, INRA

Article reporting on the intracellular glass transition temperature of Jurkat cells (an immortalized human T cell line) by DSC. This provides i) a better understanding of the behavior of mammalian cells during freezing and ii) is essential for optimizing cryopreservation protocols of mammalian cells. Such optimized protocols being used within WP5 when screening FOS/GOS as new cryoprotectants for mammalian cells. WP4, WP5

Article that involves the physical and chemical properties determination of amorphous and crystalline inulins (raw polysaccharide used to obtain FOS by hydrolysis), using WAXS, DSC, FTIR and multivariate analysis. WP2


Simões, M.G., Hugo, A., Alves, P., Pérez, P.F., Gómez-Zavaglia, A., Simões, P.N. 2018. Long term stability and interaction with epithelial cells of freeze-dried pH-responsive liposomes functionalized with cholesterol-poly(acrylic acid). Colloids and Surfaces B-Biointerfaces, 164: 50-57.
