Qualitative and quantitative detection of DNA was achieved by a "sandwich" DNA sensor through SG/TC (substrate generation and tip collection) mode of scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). The "sandwich" DNA structure was formed by the hybridization of thiol-tethered oligodeoxynucleotide probes (capture probe), assembled on the gold substrate surface,(More)
An ability to develop sequence-defined synthetic polymers that both mimic lipid amphiphilicity for self-assembly of highly stable membrane-mimetic 2D nanomaterials and exhibit protein-like functionality would revolutionize the development of biomimetic membranes. Here we report the assembly of lipid-like peptoids into highly stable, crystalline,(More)
Aptamers are single-stranded nucleic acid molecules that can be used for protein recognition, detection, and inhibition. Over the past decades, two thrombin-binding aptamers (15apt and 27apt) were reported by systemic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment technique. Though many studies have been reported about the interactions between the aptamers(More)
The potential of polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers as solubility enhancers and oral drug delivery system was well known. Herein, we investigated the possibility of PAMAM dendrimers for promoting the solubility and oral bioavailability of puerarin. In the present study, the effect of PAMAM dendrimers with different generations (G1.5, G2, G2.5, and G3) on the(More)
Two-step nucleation pathways in which disordered, amorphous, or dense liquid states precede the appearance of crystalline phases have been reported for a wide range of materials, but the dynamics of such pathways are poorly understood. Moreover, whether these pathways are general features of crystallizing systems or a consequence of system-specific(More)
Imaging of localized hybridization of nucleic acids immobilized on a glass DNA microarray was performed by means of generation collection (GC) mode scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM). Amine-tethered oligodeoxynucleotide probes, spotted on the glass surface, were hybridized with an unmodified target sequence and a biotinylated indicator probe via(More)
An on-site solid-phase extraction, consisting of the sorption, the separation and the elution function units, was designed for in situ preconcentration of heavy metals ions. The D401 resin powder was employed as sorbent to capture Pb(2+), Cu(2+), Zn(2+), Cd(2+), Co(2+), and Ni(2+), and then they desorbed with 2 mol/L nitric acid as eluent. Under the(More)
