In order to clarify the structural requirements associated with the inhibition of mitochondrial respiration by MPP+, the neurotoxic metabolites of the Parkinsonian agent MPTP, ten sets of pyridine/N-methylpyridinium pairs and a few miscellaneous compounds were evaluated on rat liver intact mitochondria (Mw) and on submitochondrial particles (SMP). The(More)
This report describes a novel diagnostic assay for rapid detection of the Panton-Valentine Leukocidin (PVL) toxin of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) utilizing resistive pulse sensing (RPS), loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) in combination with gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). The PVL DNA from MRSA was specifically amplified by(More)
A lab-on-a-disc (LOAD) is a centrifugal microfluidic setup based on centrifugal force without using micro-pumps to drive reagents and cells to various chambers through channels and valves for reactions. A LOAD coated with conductive transparent indium tin oxide (ITO) for thermal control was developed to screen allergy-blocking agents. When the acridine(More)
