In this work, a simple and sensitive electrochemical method was developed to determine Sudan I based on magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles modified glassy carbon electrode using cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry. The sensor exhibited an obviously electrocatalytic activity towards the oxidation of Sudan I, which can be confirmed by the(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a kind of small, endogenous, noncoding RNAs (∼22 nucleotides), might play a crucial role in early cancer diagnose due to its abnormal expression in many solid tumors. As a result, label-free and PCR-amplification-free assay for miRNAs is of great significance. In this work, a highly sensitive biosensor for sequence specific miRNA-21(More)
In this paper, we developed a novel electrochemical method to quantify DNA methyltransferase (MTase) and analyze DNA MTase activity. After the double DNA helix structure was assembled on the surface of gold nanoparticle modified glassy carbon electrode, it was first methylated by M. SssI MTase and then digested by restriction endonuclease HpaII, which could(More)
A novel nitrite biosensor was successfully prepared via immobilizing Cytochrome c (Cyt c) onto the multi-walled carbon nanotubes-poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM)-chitosan (MWNT-PAMAM-Chit) nanocomposite modified glass carbon electrode (GCE). Ultraviolet and visible (UV-vis) absorption spectrum, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy(More)
A novel electrochemical method is developed for detection of DNA demethylation and assay of DNA demethylase activity. This method is constructed by hybridizing the probe with biotin tagged hemi-methylated complementary DNA and further capturing streptavidin tagged alkaline phosphatase (SA-ALP) to catalyze the hydrolysis reaction of p-nitrophenyl phosphate.(More)
A novel signal "on" type of photoelectrochemical biosensor for microRNA-21 hybridization detection was fabricated, where Bi2S3 nanorods were used as photoactive material with a maximum adsorption at 450 nm visible light, hairpin-structure DNA as detecting probe, streptavidin as signal capturing unit and biotin functionalized ascorbic acid loaded apoferritin(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play very important roles in plant growth and development as well as phytohormones. More importantly, microRNAs were recently found to be a new growth regulator involved in plant hormone signaling. Therefore, for investigating the expression change of microRNAs in plants exposed to phytohormones and understanding the effect of(More)
A simple, highly sensitive and selective electrochemical assay is developed for the detection of protein kinase A (PKA) activity based on the specific recognition utility of Phos-tag for kinase-induced phosphopeptides and enzymatic signal amplification. When the substrate peptide was phosphorylated by PKA reaction, they could specifically bind with(More)
The abnormal level of DNA methyltransferase (MTase) may cause the aberrant DNA methylation, which has been found being associated with a growing number of human diseases, so it is necessary to create a sensitive and selective method to detect DNA MTase activity. In this paper, a new type of DNA functionalized nano mesoporous silica (MSNs) was creatively(More)
The abnormal expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in many solid tumors makes miRNAs potential biomarkers for disease diagnosis and highlights the need for the sensitive and selective detection of miRNAs. In the present work, an 'off-on' signaling genosensor platform for miRNA-21 detection was well developed. This tactic was based on a locked nucleic(More)
