Mucin immobilization in calcium alginate: A possible mucus mimetic tool for evaluating mucoadhesion and retention of flavour (2019)
Journal Article
Dinu, V., Yakubov, G. E., Lim, M., Hurst, K., Adams, G. G., Harding, S. E., & Fisk, I. D. (2019). Mucin immobilization in calcium alginate: A possible mucus mimetic tool for evaluating mucoadhesion and retention of flavour. International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, 138, 831-836. doi:10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2019.07.148

To reduce animal testing, there is a need to develop novel in-vitro models for evaluating the retention of bioactive compounds in food and pharmaceutical products. Here, a mucus-mimetic platform was developed through a one-step approach based on enca... Read More
