    Biodegradable polyesters with various tacticities have been synthesized by means of stereoselective ring-opening polymerization of racemic lactide and β-lactones but with limited side-chain groups. However, stereoselective ...
  • Impact of surface topography on biofilm formation by Candida albicans 

    Lagree, Katherine; Mon, Htwe H.; Mitchell, Aaron P.; Ducker, William A. (PLOS, 2018-06-18)
    Candida albicans is a fungal pathogen that causes serious biofilm-based infections. Here we have asked whether surface topography may affect C. albicans biofilm formation. We tested biofilm growth of the prototypical ...
  • Computational study of HIV gp120 as a target for polyanionic entry inhibitors: Exploiting the V3 loop region 

    Hollingsworth, Louis R. IV; Brown, Anne M.; Gandour, Richard D.; Bevan, David R. (PLOS, 2018-01-18)
    Multiple approaches are being utilized to develop therapeutics to treat HIV infection. One approach is designed to inhibit entry of HIV into host cells, with a target being the viral envelope glycoprotein, gp120. Polyanionic ...
