The glycine receptor is an anion-permeable member of the Cys-loop ion channel receptor family. Synaptic glycine receptors predominantly comprise pentameric α1β subunit heteromers. To date, attempts to define the subunit stoichiometry and arrangement of these receptors have not yielded consistent results. Here we introduced FLAG and six-His epitopes into α1(More)
BACKGROUND Nucleic acids based therapeutic approaches have gained significant interest in recent years towards the development of therapeutics against many diseases. Recently, research on aptamers led to the marketing of Macugen®, an inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) for the treatment of age related macular degeneration (AMD). Aptamer(More)
Here we report on the synthesis of caesium doped graphene oxide (GO-Cs) and its application to the development of a novel NO2 gas sensor. The GO, synthesized by oxidation of graphite through chemical treatment, was doped with Cs by thermal solid-state reaction. The samples, dispersed in DI water by sonication, have been drop-casted on standard(More)
