A fluorescence-based multianalyte immunosensor has been developed for simultaneous analysis of multiple samples. While the standard 6 x 6 format of the array sensor has been used to analyze six samples for six different analytes, this same format has the potential to allow a single sample to be tested for 36 different agents. The method described herein(More)
The design, synthesis and biological evaluation of novel seco-iso-cyclopropylfurano[2,3-e]indoline (seco-iso-CFI) and the seco-cyclopropyltetrahydrofurano[2,3-f]quinoline (seco-CFQ) analogues of the duocarmycins are described. These novel analogues (4-7) were designed on the premise that the lone pair of electrons on the furano-oxygen atom could enter into(More)
Biotinylated, highly luminescent CdSe-ZnS quantum dot (QD) conjugates were prepared and used in immunofiltration assays. Water-soluble quantum dot surfaces having a homogeneous negative charge density at basic pH were initially coated with a two-domain recombinant maltose-binding protein appended with a positively charged leucine zipper. Biotin(More)
Analogs of the seco-cyclopyrroloindoline (seco-CPI), the DNA alkylation pharmacophore of CC-1065 and the duocarmycins, can be prepared through a 5-exo-trig radical cyclization of a free radical and a 3-chloro-2-allylic moiety. This manuscript reports an unexpected discovery that, depending on the structure and stability of the free radical, the cyclization(More)
Racemic seco-iso-CFI (cyclopropylfurano[e]indoline) analogs of the duocarmycins and CC-1065 have recently been reported by our group. These compounds covalently react with AT-rich sequences of DNA, and they exhibit potent cytotoxicity against cancer cells but are less toxic to normal bone marrow cells. This article details the synthesis of enantiomerically(More)
We report a rapid, simple, and sensitive assay that is potentially amenable to high throughput screening for analysis of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) present in aqueous solutions. The assay is based on the change in fluorescence emission intensity of a fluorescently labeled TNT analogue pre-bound to an anti-TNT antibody that occurs upon its competitive(More)
Hairpin conjugates of achiral seco-cyclopropaneindoline-2-benzofurancarboxamide (achiral seco-CI-Bf) and three diamides (ImPy 1, PyIm 2, and PyPy 3, where Py is pyrrole, and Im is imidazole), linked by a gamma-aminobutyrate group, were synthesized. The sequence-specific covalent alkylation of the achiral CI moiety with adenine-N3 in the minor groove was(More)
The ability to detect low levels of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) in aqueous samples is important due to the toxicity of both TNT and its breakdown products. We have been characterizing recombinant anti-TNT antibodies isolated from the Griffin library of phage displayed scFvs by selection for binders to the TNT-surrogate 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene (TNB) coupled to(More)
