Pressure-driven flows of high molecular weight polyacrylamide solutions are examined in nanoslits using fluorescence photobleaching. The effective viscosity of polymer solutions decreases when the channel height decreases below the micron scale. In addition, the apparent slippage of the solutions is

Adsorption of oligonucleotides onto model cellulose surfaces was investigated by comparing the Boese and Breaker's cellulose binding oligonucleotide (CBO) with a nonspecific oligonucleotide control (NSO). Measurements using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation technique confirmed that CBO adsorbed onto cellulose

Many studies have demonstrated that sulfur-containing acidic groups induce chondrogenesis in vitro and in vivo. Recently, it is increasingly clear that mechanical properties of cell substrates largely influence cell differentiation. Thus, the present study investigated how mechanical properties of sulfonate-coated
