    W Q Sun
    Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore, Singapore
    Biochim Biophys Acta 1425:245-54. 1998
    ..These results indicate an important role of the glassy state in protein stabilization. Our data suggest an association between protein stability in intracellular glass and seed survival during storage...

    W Q Sun
    Department of Botany, National University of Singapore, Singapore
    Biophys J 70:1769-76. 1996
    ..The half-life of solute retention in dry liposomes may be prolonged by storing dry liposomes at temperatures below the Tg and by increasing the Tg of the dry liposome preparation...

    P Davidson
    Department of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore, Singapore
    Pharm Res 18:474-9. 2001
    ..Our data do not support the prediction from recent thermophysical studies that raffinose should be superior to sucrose and trehalose as a potential excipient or stabilizer...
