We have demonstrated that the incorporation of sulfated galactose acid (sulf-Gal) into thrombin-binding-aptamer (TBA)-conjugated gold nanoparticles (TBA-AuNPs) enables highly effective inhibition of thrombin activity toward fibrinogen. AuNP bioconjugates (TBA(15)/TBA(29)/sulf-Gal-AuNPs) were prepared from 13 nm AuNPs, 15-mer thrombin-binding aptamer(More)
Skyline detection plays an important role in unmanned aerial vehicle visual flight control systems. Many studies assume that the skyline in the image is a straight line with clear edge features, but this assumption is not necessarily true under different weather and environmental conditions. For example, when it is cloudy or foggy the contrast and(More)
We have developed a simple and selective nanosensor for the optical detection of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) using globular actin-conjugated gold/silver nanorods (G-actin-Au/Ag NRs). By simply mixing G-actin and Au/Ag NRs (length ~56 nm and diameter ~12 nm), G-actin-Au/Ag NRs were prepared which were stable in physiological solutions (25 mM Tris-HCl, 150(More)
In this study, we employed HgTe nanostructure-based matrices (nanomartrices; NMs) for surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (SALDI-MS) for the analyses of polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivatives as well as thiol-PEG-modified gold nanoparticles (PEG-Au NPs). Relative to common organic matrices, the use of HgTe NMs as the matrix for(More)
A self-assembled nanocomposite is prepared from an aqueous mixture of aptamer-modified gold nanoparticles (Apt-Au NPs), bismuth ions and chloride ions. The Apt-Au NPs are immobilized on bismuth oxychloride (BiOCl) nanosheets in situ to form Apt-Au NPs/BiOCl nanocomposites. The as-prepared nanocomposites exhibit high peroxidase-like activity for the(More)
