E1/E3-deleted Adenovirus 5 (Ad.5) possesses a great potential in gene therapy because of its high efficacy in gene transfer and low toxicity. Studies have shown that Coxsackie-Adenovirus receptor (CAR) is the determinant factor for the targeting of Adenovirus vectors. To extend the natural targeting of Ad to low CAR expressing tumors, we covalently attached(More)
The large size of many near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent nanoparticles prevents rapid extravasation from blood vessels and subsequent diffusion to tumors. This confines in vivo uptake to the peritumoral space and results in high liver retention. In this study, we developed a viscosity modulated approach to synthesize ultrasmall silver sulfide quantum dots(More)
Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is a protease related to tumor invasion and metastasis. It is heavily secreted by malignant tumor cells, allowing the protease to serve as an imaging biomarker of cancer. In this study, a novel sensing system based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) from quantum dot (QD, the donor) to organic dye (the(More)
Tryptophan is investigated as the key native marker in cells to determine the level of metastasis competence in breast cell lines using native fluorescence spectroscopy. The ratio of fluorescence intensity at 340 nm to intensity at 460 nm is associated with aggressiveness of the cancer cells. We found that the fluorescence of aggressive breast cancer cell(More)
Signal transducer and activator of transcription 5B (STAT5B) is an important protein in JAK-STAT signaling pathway that is responsible for the metastasis and proliferation of tumor cells. Determination of the STAT5B messenger Ribonucleic Acid (mRNA) relating to the STAT5B expression provides insight into the mechanism of tumor progression. In this study, we(More)
Messenger RNA (mRNA), a single-strand ribonucleic acid with functional gene information is usually abnormally expressed in cancer cells and has become a promising biomarker for the study of tumor progress. Hairpin DNA-coated gold nanoparticle (hDAuNP) beacon containing a bare gold nanoparticle (AuNP) as fluorescence quencher and thiol-terminated(More)
The spectral changes of native fluorophores among normal fibroblasts and cancer cell lines of different metastatic ability are investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy. The normal (fibroblast), moderately metastatic (DU-145), and advanced metastatic (PC-3) cell lines were each selectively excited at 300 nm, and their fluorescence emission spectra are(More)
The clinical diagnosis of most cancers is based on evaluation of histology microscopic slides to view the size and shape of cellular nuclei and morphological structure of tissue. To achieve this goal for in vivo and in-deep tissues, near infrared dyes-bovine serum albumin and immunoglobulin G conjugates were synthesized. The spectral study shows that the(More)
