    Introduction: One of the biggest impacts that the nanotechnology has made on medicine and biology, has been in the area of drug delivery systems (DDSs). Many drugs suffer from serious problems concerning insolubility, instability in biological environments, poor uptake into cells and tissues, sub-optimal selectivity for targets and unwanted side effects. Nanocarriers can be designed as DDSs to overcome many of these drawbacks. One of the most versatile building blocks to prepare these nanocarriers is the ubiquitous, readily available and inexpensive protein, serum albumin. Areas covered: This review covers the use of different types of albumin (human, bovine, rat, and chicken egg) to prepare... 

    Mesoporous silica nanoparticles with bilayer coating of poly(acrylic acid-co-itaconic acid) and human serum albumin (HSA): A pH-sensitive carrier for gemcitabine delivery

    , Article Materials Science and Engineering C ; Volume 61 , 2016 , Pages 782-790 ; 09284931 (ISSN) Pourjavadi, A ; Mazaheri Tehrani, Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    Novel bilayer coated mesoporous silica nanoparticle (MCM-41) based on pH sensitive poly(acrylic acid-co-itaconic acid) and human serum albumin (HSA) was designed for controlled delivery of gemcitabine (anticancer drug) to cancer cells. The shell around the mesoporous silica has bilayer structure. Poly(acrylic acid-co-itaconic acid) was used as pH-sensitive inner shell and human serum albumin, HSA, was used as outer shell. The core-shell structure was formed due to electrostatic interaction between ammonium groups of modified MCM-41 and carboxylate groups of copolymer. Also, the albumin layer was wrapped around the copolymer coated nanoparticle by electrostatic interaction between ammonium... 

    High-capacity hierarchically imprinted polymer beads for protein recognition and capture

    , Article Angewandte Chemie - International Edition ; Volume 50, Issue 2 , December , 2011 , Pages 495-498 ; 14337851 (ISSN) Nematollahzadeh, A ; Sun, W ; Aureliano, C. S. A ; Lütkemeyer, D ; Stute, J ; Abdekhodaie, M. J ; Shojaei, A ; Sellergren, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Leaving an imprint: Hierarchical protein imprinting starting from wide-pore silica modified with a submonolayer of adsorbed protein (IgG or HSA) leads to an inverse polymeric replica of the silica template that features highly accessible protein-complementary binding sites (see picture). The resulting poly(acrylamide) beads (PIgG or PHSA) feature high binding capacities and can be used to selectively capture the proteins HSA and IgG from blood serum  

    Evaluation of molecular imprinted polymerized methylene blue/aptamer as a novel hybrid receptor for cardiac troponin I (cTnI) detection at glassy carbon electrodes modified with new biosynthesized ZnONPs

    , Article Sensors and Actuators, B: Chemical ; Volume 320 , 1 October , 2020 Mokhtari, Z ; Khajehsharifi, H ; Hashemnia, S ; Solati, Z ; Azimpanah, R ; Shahrokhian, S ; Sharif University of Technology

    In this research, a novel, rapid, and non-immune electrochemical method was used to detect cardiac troponin I (cTnI) using a double recognition approach. Amine terminus cTnI aptamers immobilized on COOH-ZnO nanoparticles (COOH-ZnONPs) modified GCE surface were applied to capture cTnI for imprinting recognition. The COOH-ZnONPs were synthesized in a biological manner. Then, the methylene blue (MB) monomers were electro-polymerized around the cTnI-aptamer complexes. Following the removal of cTnI, cavities were constructed and converted to a new aptamer and molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) hybrid receptor (aptamer/MIP/ZnONPs). FT-IR spectra, SEM images, XRD patterns, and electrochemical... 

    Probe into the molecular mechanism of ibuprofen interaction with warfarin bound to human serum albumin in comparison to ascorbic and salicylic acids: Allosteric inhibition of anticoagulant release

    , Article Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling ; Volume 61, Issue 8 , 2021 , Pages 4045-4057 ; 15499596 (ISSN) Kalhor, H. R ; Taghikhani, E ; Sharif University of Technology

    The release of anticoagulant drugs such as warfarin from human serum albumin (HSA) has been important not only mechanistically but also clinically for patients who take multiple drugs simultaneously. In this study, the role of some commonly used drugs, including s-ibuprofen, ascorbic acid, and salicylic acid, was investigated in the release of warfarin bound to HSA in silico. The effects of the aforementioned drugs on the HSA-warfarin complex were investigated with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations using two approaches; in the first perspective, molecular docking was used to model the interaction of each drug with the HSA-warfarin complex, and in the second approach, drugs were positioned...

    Currently, Alzheimer's disease (AD) accounts for more than half of all dementia cases. Although genetics, age, and environmental factors affect the disease, the cause of AD is not yet fully known. Various drugs have been proposed for the prevention and treatment of AD, but the delivery of these therapeutic agents to the brain is difficult. The blood–brain barrier prevents systemic drugs from accessing the central nervous system and designing a suitable system to overcome this barrier has attracted much attention. The intranasal pathway, given its proximity to the brain, provides a great opportunity for drug delivery. Understanding the physiological characteristics of the nose can be useful...

    Sulfur compounds are essential for many industries and organisms; however, they cause serious respiratory problems in human beings. Therefore, determination of sulfur concentration is of paramount importance. The research approach in the field of detecting contaminants has led to smaller systems that provide faster and more effective ways for diagnosis purposes. In this study, a novel portable amperometric graphene oxide–protein biosensor platform is investigated. The main characteristic of this structure is the implementation of a microfluidic configuration. With albumin metalloprotein as the biorecognition element, graphene oxide was synthesized and characterized by transmission electron... 

    Studies of the rate of water evaporation through adsorption layers using drop shape analysis tensiometry

    , Article Journal of Colloid and Interface Science ; Volume 308, Issue 1 , 2007 , Pages 249-253 ; 00219797 (ISSN) Fainerman, V. B ; Makievski, A. V ; Krägel, J ; Javadi, A ; Miller, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    With modified measuring procedure and measuring cell design in the drop profile tensiometer PAT, it became possible to study the rate of water evaporation through adsorbed or spread surface layers. This method was employed to measure the rate of water evaporation from drops covered by adsorbed layers of some proteins and surfactants, in particular n-dodecanol. It was shown that the formation of dense (double or condensed) adsorbed layers of protein and the formation of 2D-condensed n-dodecanol layer decrease the water evaporation rate by 20-25% as compared with pure water. At the same time, the adsorbed layers of ordinary surfactants (sodium dodecyl sulfate and nonionic ethoxylated... 

    Molecularly imprinted polydopamine nano-layer on the pore surface of porous particles for protein capture in HPLC column

    , Article Journal of Colloid and Interface Science ; Volume 404 , 2013 , Pages 117-126 ; 00219797 (ISSN) Nematollahzadeh, A ; Shojaei, A ; Abdekhodaie, M. J ; Sellergren, B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Bio-inspired Human Serum Albumin (HSA) imprinted polydopamine nano-layer was produced through oxidative polymerization of dopamine on the pore surface of HSA modified porous silica particles. The coating thickness was controlled by the reaction time and thereby varied within 0-12. nm. The samples were characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR, DSC, SEM, TEM, TGA, physisorption and thermoporometry. The characterization confirmed the success of evolution and deposition of polydopamine layer on the silica pore surface. Batch rebinding experiment showed that the molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) with 8.7. nm coating thickness, in comparison with the thinner and thicker coatings, displays the...
