OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of apolipoprotein E (ApoE) gene polymorphism on lipid metabolism among renal transplant recipients before and after transplantation. No prisoners or organs from prisoners were used in this study. METHODS ApoE gene polymorphism was detected with polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism; serum(More)
"Host" molecules, containing a binding site that is highly specific for an analyte "guest," are used as sensors to register analyte binding through a variety of mechanisms such as colorimetric, fluorescent, or electrochemical signals. There is increasing interest in the host-guest chemistry on the surface of quantum dots (QDs) and in the changes that it(More)
Highly blue luminescent nitrogen-doped carbon dots (N-CDs) with a fluorescence quantum yield of 42.3% were prepared by an efficient one-step pyrolytic route from ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and urea. The as-synthesized N-CDs were demonstrated as an effective fluorescent probe for label-free, selective and sensitive recognition of Fe(3+) with a linear(More)
A versatile yet simple strategy for the fabrication of a highly selective and sensitive fenamithion probe based on Rhodamine B (RB) modified silver nanoparticles (RB-Ag NPs) was developed. The advantage of our system over classical assays is that it combined fluorescence with colorimetry which can realize the prompt on-site and real-time detection of(More)
TARGET Our study was to investigate the effects of interleukin-6 (IL-6) polymorphisms (rs2069837 and rs17147230) on the risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS A total of 226 HCC cases and 220 healthy controls were admitted into the study and genomic DNA was extracted from the peripheral blood. The genotyping was conducted by the method of(More)
Efficient enantiomer discrimination with a convenient system remains a challenge in the fields of biochemistry, medical science, and pharmaceutics. Here we report a simple enantioselective sensing device based on a single artificial β-cyclodextrin-modified nanochannel system. This nanodevice shows highly selective recognition of histidine enantiomers(More)
Multimodal molecular imaging has attracted more and more interest from researchers due to its combination of the strengths of each imaging modality. The development of specific and multifunctional molecular imaging probes is the key for this method. In this study, we fabricated an optical/magnetic resonance (MR) dual-modality molecular imaging nanoprobe,(More)
The ability to create a synergistic effect of nanostructure engineering and its hybridization with conductive carbonaceous material is highly desirable for attaining high-performance lithium ion batteries (LIBs). Herein, we judiciously crafted ZnFe2O4/carbon nanocomposites composed of ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles with an average size of 16 ± 5 nm encapsulated(More)
