Recently, preparation and screening of compound libraries remain one of the most challenging tasks in drug discovery, biomarker detection, and biomolecular profiling processes. So far, several distinct encoding/decoding methods such as chemical encoding, graphical encoding, and optical encoding have been reported to identify those libraries. In this paper,(More)
Identification of substrate specificity of kinases is crucial to understand the roles of the kinases in cellular signal transduction pathways. Here, we present an approach applicable for the discovery of substrate specificity of Ser/Thr kinases. The method, which is named as the 'high-throughput phosphorylation profiling (HTPP)' method was developed on the(More)
The study of protein kinases has become a matter of great importance in the development of new drugs for the treatment of diseases, including cancer and inflammation. Substrate screening is the first step in the fundamental investigation of protein kinases and the development of inhibitors for use in drug discovery. Towards this goal, various studies have(More)
Being different from anti-phosphotyrosine antibodies, anti-phosphoserine- or anti-phosphothreonine-specific antibodies with high affinity for the detection of serine/threonine kinase substrates are not readily available. Therefore, chemical modification methods were developed for the detection of phosphoserine or threonine in the screening of protein kinase(More)
Ethylenediamine-modified β-cyclodextrin (Et-β-CD) was immobilized on aggregated silver nanoparticle (NP)-embedded silica NPs (SiO₂@Ag@Et-β-CD NPs) for the effective detection of flavonoids. Silica NPs were used as the template for embedding silver NPs to create hot spots and enhance surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) signals. Et-β-CD was immobilized(More)
A core-shell type polymer support for solid-phase peptide synthesis has been developed for high coupling efficiency of peptides and versatile applications such as on-bead bioassays. Although various kinds of polymer supports have been developed, they have their own drawbacks including poor accessibility of reagents and incompatibility in aqueous solution.(More)
Maskless photolithographic peptide synthesis was performed on a glass chip using an automated peptide array synthesizer system. The peptide array synthesizer was built in a closed box, which contained optical and fluidic systems. The conditions for peptide synthesis were fully controlled by a computer program. For the peptide synthesis on a glass chip, 20(More)
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) provides a unique non-destructive spectroscopic fingerprint for chemical detection. However, intrinsic differences in affinity of analyte molecules to metal surface hinder SERS as a universal quantitative detection tool for various analyte molecules simultaneously. This must be overcome while keeping close proximity(More)
To impart a desired optical property to metal nanoparticles (NPs) suitable for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) applications, it is crucial to assemble them in two or three dimensions in addition to controlling their size and shape. Herein, we report a new strategy for the synthesis and direct assembly of Ag NPs on silica nanospheres (AgNPs-SiNS) in(More)
