Elemental metal nanoparticles like cadmium and silver are known to cause oxidative stress and are also highly toxic. Yet for gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), it is not well established whether these particles are biologically toxic. Here we show that AuNPs, which were taken up by MRC-5 human lung fibroblasts in vitro, induce autophagy concomitant with oxidative(More)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are one of the most versatile and widely researched materials for novel biomedical applications. However, the current knowledge in their toxicological profile is still incomplete and many on-going investigations aim to understand the potential adverse effects in human body. Here, we employed two dimensional gel electrophoresis to(More)
Measurements of mechanical properties of biological cells are of great importance because changes in these properties can be strongly associated with the progression of cell differentiation and cell diseases. Although state of the art methods, such as atomic force microscopy, optical tweezers and micropipette aspiration, have been widely used to measure the(More)
We report an easily visualized liquid crystal (LC)-based system to study the molecular interactions between protein-coated gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and supported phospholipid monolayer self-assembled at the aqueous-LC interface. Protein-coated AuNPs were found to disrupt the phospholipid monolayer and resulted in the orientational transitions of LCs that(More)
Dielectrophoresis (DEP) has been shown to have significant potential for the characterization of cells and could become an efficient tool for rapid identification and assessment of microorganisms. The present work is focused on the trapping, characterization, and separation of two species of Cryptosporidium (C. parvum and C. muris) and Giardia lambia (G.(More)
We report a liquid crystal (LC)-based sensor for real-time and label-free identification of phospholipase-like toxins. Beta-bungarotoxin exhibits Ca(2+)-dependent phospholipase A(2) activity whereas alpha-bungarotoxin and myotoxin II do not exhibit any phospholipase activity. The sensor can selectively identify beta-bungarotoxin, when it hydrolyzes a(More)
This paper presents a two-stream microfluidic system for transporting cells or micro-sized particles from one fluid stream to another by acoustophoresis. The two fluid streams, one being the original suspension and the other being the destination fluid, flow parallel to each other in a microchannel. Using a half-wave acoustic standing wave across the(More)
This letter reports a strategy of using N-terminal cysteine labels for controlling the immobilization of oligopeptides on aldehyde-terminated surfaces through the formation of stable thiazolidine rings. We also study the effect of cysteine position (either N-terminal or C-terminal) and lysine residue on the immobilization of oligopeptides. On the basis of(More)
We report an easily visualized liquid crystal (LC)-based system to study the biophysical interactions between protein-coated gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and LC-supported cell membrane model. The model consists of mixed phospholipid/cholesterol monolayer self-assembled at aqueous-LC interface. Protein-coated AuNPs were found to disrupt the mixed(More)
Chemically micropatterned surfaces have broad applications in many fields. In this paper, we report a new method for preparing chemically micropatterned surfaces by controlling and manipulating supported phospholipid monolayers as soft resist layers with molecular-level precision. First, we introduce self-assembled supported phospholipid monolayers on solid(More)
