We have developed a novel graphene-based biosensing platform using peptides as probe biomolecules, and demonstrated its feasibility in the application of real-time monitoring of protease activity based on FRET between GO and dye-labeled peptides. This assay allows the rapid and accurate determination of enzyme kinetic parameters as well as inhibition(More)
A novel microarray for the multiplex determination of heavy metal ions in aqueous solution based on DNAzymes has been developed with good sensitivity and selectivity. In the present work, metal ion dependent DNAzymes of copper (Cu-Enz) and lead (Pb-Enz) were first associated with their corresponding DNA substrates (Cu-Sub and Pb-Sub) immobilized on the(More)
It is well-known that microRNAs (miRNAs) have become an ideal class of biomarker candidates for clinical diagnosis of cancers, thus sensitive and selective detection of microRNAs is of great significance in understanding biological functions of miRNAs, early-phase diagnosis of cancers, as well as discovery of new targets for drugs. In this work, we have(More)
Microorganisms can restructure their transcriptional output to adapt to environmental conditions by sensing endogenous metabolite pools. In this paper, an Agilent customized microarray representing 4,106 genes was used to study temporal transcript profiles of Bacillus subtilis in response to valine, glutamate and glutamine pulses over 24 h. A total of 673,(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play vital roles in a plethora of biological and cellular processes. The levels of miRNAs can be useful biomarkers for cellular events or disease diagnosis, thus the method for sensitive and selective detection of miRNAs is imperative to miRNA discovery, study, and clinical diagnosis. Here we develop a novel method to quantify miRNA(More)
We have designed a versatile molecular beacon (MB)-like probe for the multiplex sensing of targets such as sequence-specific DNA, protein, metal ions and small molecule compounds based on the self-assembled ssDNA-graphene oxide (ssDNA-GO) architecture. The probe employs fluorescence "on/off" switching strategy in a single step in homogeneous solution.(More)
The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II system is strongly connected to immunological response and its compatibility between tissues is critical in transplantation. The simple robust typing analyses of HLA genes are extremely important. In this paper, we developed an approach based on microarray technology for genotyping of DQA gene. The microarrays were(More)
We present a novel approach of single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analysis in which allele-specific oligonucleotide hybridization is followed by non-gel capillary electrophoresis (ASOH-NGCE) in conjunction with laser-induced fluorescence (LIF). This allows rapid multiplex allelotyping and allele frequency estimation. This method, based on site separation(More)
Contamination of the environment with heavy metal ions has been an important worldwide concern for decades. Mercury, which can accumulate in vital organs and tissues, such as the liver, brain, and heart muscle, is highly toxic and can have lethal effects on living systems. Mercury originates mainly from coal-burning power plants, oceanic and volcanic(More)
