Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) plays an essential role in DNA replication and repair. Tumor cells express high levels of PCNA, identifying it as a potentially ideal target for cancer therapy. Previously, we identified nine compounds termed PCNA inhibitors (PCNA-Is) that bind directly to PCNA, stabilize PCNA trimer structure, reduce(More)
Carbon nanotube (CNT) film was evaluated as an optically transparent electrode (OTE) for thin layer spectroelectrochemistry. Chemically inert CNT arrays were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) using thin films of Fe and Co as catalysts. Vertically aligned CNT arrays were drawn onto a quartz slide to form CNT films that constituted the OTE.(More)
The effect of widely different corrosion rates of Mg alloys on four parameters of interest for in vivo characterization was evaluated: (1) the effectiveness of transdermal H2 measurements with an electrochemical sensor for noninvasively monitoring biodegradation compared to the standard techniques of in vivo X-ray imaging and weight loss measurement of(More)
Electrospun polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based carbon nanofibers (CNFs) have attracted intense attention due to their easy processing, high carbon yield, and robust mechanical properties. In this work, a CNF modified glassy carbon (GC) electrode that was coated with Nafion polymer was evaluated as a new electrode material for the simultaneous determination of(More)
UNLABELLED Monitoring the biodegradation process of magnesium and its alloys in vivo is challenging. Currently, this process is monitored by micro-CT and X-ray imaging in vivo, which require large and costly instrumentation. Here we report a simple and effective methodology to monitor the biodegradation process in vivo by sensing H2 transdermally above a(More)
A Nafion film loaded with novel catalyst-free multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) was used to modify a glassy carbon (GC) electrode to detect trace concentrations of metal ions, with europium ion (Eu(3+)) as a model. The interaction between the sidewalls of MWCNTs and the hydrophobic backbone of Nafion allows the MWCNTs to be dispersed in Nafion, which(More)
Different extended packing motifs of dichlorido[2-(pyridin-2-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline]copper(II), [CuCl2(C17H11N3)], are obtained, depending on the crystallization conditions. A triclinic form, (I), is obtained from dimethylformamide-diethyl ether or methanol, whereas crystallization from dimethylformamide-water yields a monoclinic form, (II). In each case,(More)
A visual sensor for H2 was used to transdermally monitor H2 that originated from biodegrading magnesium (Mg) alloys implanted subcutaneously in mice. The visual sensor consisted of a thin film of H2-sensitive material (MoO3 and Pd catalyst) coated on a flexible plastic sheet that was pressed against the mouse skin directly above the implant. Although the H2(More)
A series of platinum(II) complexes with the formulas Pt(phebox)(L)(+) (phebox(-) = 1,3-bis(4,4'-dimethyl-2'-oxazolinyl)phenyl anion; L = pyridine (py), 4-phenylpyridine, quinoline, acridine) and Pt2(phebox)2(μ-L')(2+) (L' = pyrazine, 4,4'-bipyridine, 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethane) was prepared. Crystallographic data establish that the metal center is bonded to(More)
Different salts of the 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthrolin-1-ium cation, (pnpH)(+), are obtained by reacting 2-phenyl-1,10-phenanthroline (pnp), C18H12N2, (I), with a variety of anions, such as hexafluoridophosphate, C18H13N2(+)·PF6(-), (II), trifluoromethanesulfonate, C18H13N2(+)·CF3SO3(-), (III), tetrachloridoaurate, (C18H13N2)[AuCl4], (IV), and bromide (as the(More)
