Mitochondrial localisation and cellular uptake in vitro using novel ‘mitochondriotropic’ liposomes.
Mitochondrial research has made tremendous strides since the 1980/90s when mitochondrial DNA mutations were first identified as a primary cause for human diseases and the organelle’s role in apoptosis was elucidated. These ...
Receptor targeted gene delivery using folate ligand conjugated cationic liposomes.
Gene therapy has become an important strategy to treat several human diseases, including cancer, viral infections and inherited disorders. In response to this growing trend, a number of gene delivery vectors have been ...

Some aspects of development and cell wall properties of the desiccation-sensitive embryos of Encephalartos natalensis (Zamiaceae)
The present investigation can be divided into two main sections: the first dealing with the post-shedding embryogenesis of Encephalartos natalensis and the second concerned with the cell wall properties of immature and ...
Ecophysiological studies of the invasive weed Chromolaena odorata (L.) King and Robinson and its control in KwaZulu-Natal.
Despite increased interest in the control and spread of the alien weed, Chromolaena odorata, little is known of its photosynthetic characteristics under field conditions. The aim of the study was to obtain a better ...
