18 p, 1016.4 KB Enhancing Localized Pesticide Action through Plant Foliage by Silver-Cellulose Hybrid Patches / Alonso-Díaz, Alejandro (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Floriach Clark, Jordi (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona) ; Fuentes, Judit (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona) ; Capellades, Montserrat (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Coll, Núria (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Laromaine i Sagué, Anna (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona)
Efficacy and efficiency of pesticide application in the field through the foliage still face many challenges. There exists a mismatch between the hydrophobic character of the leaf and the active molecule, low dispersion of the pesticides on the leaves' surface, runoff loss, and rolling down of the active molecules to the field, decreasing their efficacy and increasing their accumulation to the soil.

Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2), an important paracrine growth factor, binds electrostatically with low micromolar affinity to heparan sulfates present on extracellular matrix proteins. A single molecular analysis served as a basis to decipher the nanomechanical mechanism of the interaction between FGF-2 and the heparan sulfate surrogate, heparin, with a modular atomic force microscope (AFM) design combining magnetic actuators with force measurements at the low force regime (1 × 10¹ to 1 × 10⁴ pN/s).
