• A Comprehensive Phylogenetic and Bioinformatics Assessment of Hydrophobin Protein for Drug Delivery: an In Silico Analysis

    9 days ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Nowadays, efforts are being made to reduce the side effects of drugs, increase the effectiveness of drugs on the target tissue, etc. using drug delivery knowledge to control the bioavailability of drugs in the human body. Hydrophobin is a low molecular weight hydrophobic fungal protein that can potentially be used as nanocarrier in drug delivery systems. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the hydrophobin of Trichoderma , Cladosporium , Verticillium and Sphaerulina species are closely related to animal hydrophobin. The evolutionary relationship of hydrophobin protein was...
