Ovalbumin (OVA) was phosphorylated by dry-heating in the presence of pyrophosphate at pH 4.0 and 85 degrees C for 1 and 5 days, and the physicochemical and structural properties of phosphorylated OVA were investigated. The phosphorus content of OVA increased to 1.01% by phosphorylation, and the electrophoretic mobility of PP-OVA also increased. Although the(More)
The present work described the comparison of β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) and p-sulfonated calix[6]arene (SCX6) functionalized reduced graphene oxide (RGO) for recognition of tadalafil. In this study, tadalafil and two macrocycles (β-CD and SCX6) were selected as the guest and host molecules, respectively. The inclusion complexes of β-CD/tadalafil and(More)
Uniform and highly dispersed gold-silicon carbide (Au@SiC) nanocomposites were prepared via simple way and used for fabrication of label-free electrochemical immunosensor for sensitive detection of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). Using Au@SiC as electrode material and using ferricyanide as mediator, the proposed immunosensor provides a simple and(More)
Starch was phosphorylated through dry-heating in the presence of pyrophosphate at various conditions, and the characteristics of phosphorylated starch (PS) were examined. Starch phosphorylation increases as the pH increases from 3 to 6, but diminishes at pH 7. Increased temperatures enhance phosphorylation. Data from (31)P NMR suggests that starch(More)
A titanium dioxide-silicon carbide nanohybrid (TiO2-SiC) with enhanced electrochemical performance was successfully prepared through a facile generic in situ growth strategy. Monodispersed ultrafine palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) with a uniform size of ∼2.3 nm were successfully obtained on the TiO2-SiC surface via a chemical reduction method. The(More)
A competitive fluorescence method toward tadalafil detection has been developed based on host-guest recognition by selecting rhodamine B (RhB) and p-sulfonated calix[6]arene functionalized graphene (CX6-Gra) as the "reporter pair". Upon the presence of tadalafil to the performed CX6-Gra-RhB complex, the RhB molecules are displaced by tadalafil, leading to a(More)
This study reports a new method for the selenization of food proteins. Egg white protein (EWP) was selenized by dry-heating in the presence of selenite, and the physiochemical and functional properties of the selenized EWP were investigated. Selenization was accelerated with a decrease in pH from 7.0 to 3.0, an increase in heating time from 1 to 5 days, and(More)
A rapid and sensitive electrochemical sensor based on disulfides bridged β-cyclodextrin dimer-functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotube (DBβ-CD-MWCNT) nanohybrids with higher supramolecular recognition capability was successfully constructed for the first time. Simultaneous trace analysis of three phenols (4-aminophenol, 4-AP; 4-chlorophenol, 4-CP;(More)
Food proteins were phosphorylated by heating in a dry state in the presence of phosphate. When casein, whey protein isolate (WPI), and egg white proteins (EWP), which were lyophilized from their solutions in a phosphate buffer, were dry-heated at various temperatures and pH levels for 1-5 days, EWP was more highly phosphorylated than casein and WPI.(More)
Egg white protein (EWP) was glycated with maltopentaose (MP) through the Maillard reaction and subsequently phosphorylated by 85°C dry-heating at pH 4.0 for 1 d in the presence of pyrophosphate. The functional properties of glycated, phosphorylated EWP were compared with those of native EWP and with EWP which was phosphorylated by dry-heating in the(More)
