A new, simple, and disposable molecularly imprinted electrochemical sensor for the determination of ranitidine was developed on pencil graphite electrode (PGE) via cyclic voltammetry (CV). The PGEs were coated with MWCNTs containing the carboxylic functional group (f-MWCNTs), imprinted with sol-gel and Au nanoparticle (AuNPs) layers(More)
A new chemiluminescence system was developed for the determination of cysteine by flow injection system. This method is based on the reaction of L-cysteine with Ru(phen)3(2+) and Ce(IV) to produce chemiluminescence. The calibration curve was linear over the range 8.0x10(-7) to 4.0x10(-5) and 4.0x10(-5) to 1.0x10(-3) M with a detection limit of 7.0x10(-7) M(More)
A flow injection chemiluminescent (FI-CL) method has been developed for the simultaneous determination of codeine and noscapine using N-PLS regression. The method is based on the fact that kinetic characteristics of codeine and noscapine are different in the Ru(phen)(3)(2+)-Ce(IV) CL system. In flow injection mode, codeine gives broad peak with the highest(More)
A rapid, simple and sensitive label-free fluorescence method was developed for the determination of trace amounts of an important drug, heparin. This new method was based on water-soluble glutathione-capped CdTe quantum dots (CdTe QDs) as the luminescent probe. CdTe QDs were prepared according to the published protocol and the sizes of these nanoparticles(More)
A new approach for developing a fluorimetric aptasensor has been described and applied for determination of a highly toxic cation, As(III). In this method an aptamer was used to aggregate cationic cysteamine-stabilized CdTe/ZnS core/shell quantum dots, as a result fluorescence quenching was accrued. In the presence of As(III), the aptamer and As(III) make a(More)
A spectrophotometric flow injection system is described for the determination of hydrazine, involving oxidation of hydrazine by thallium(III) with concomitant formation of thallium(I). The optimum analytical conditions have been established. The linear range for hydrazine is 25-500 ng ml(-1) with a detection limit of 20 ng ml(-1). The sampling frequency is(More)
Calmodulin (CaM) is a ubiquitous, calcium-binding protein that regulates several important aspects of cellular metabolism. A number of enzymes such as phosphodiesterase (PDE-1) are stimulated by CaM. In previous studies, our results showed that artemisinin (ART) is a potent inhibitor of CaM and PDE-1 activity. In this study, the effects of(More)
A selective and sensitive electrochemical impedance immunosensor based on immobilization of a specific monoclonal antibody on Au nanoparticles modified gold electrode was developed for determination of human growth hormone (hGH). Colloidal gold nanoparticles were coated on the gold electrode through the thiol groups of 1,6-hexanedithiol monolayer as a(More)
Artemisinin and Cyclosporin A were examined for their ability to inhibit the calmodulin-mediated activation of phosphodiesterase, which is based on the hydrolysis of cAMP to AMP by phosphodiesterase in the presence or absence of inhibitors, followed by quantitative analysis using spectrophotometer method. Anti-calmodulin activity of these agents was(More)
In this report, we synthesized MgCr(2)O(4) nanoparticles and then multiwall carbon nanotubes were decorated with the MgCr(2)O(4) nanoparticles. The characteristics of the new materials were studied with different techniques such as transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and electrochemical(More)
