SIR — The drive to develop new human pluripotent stem-cell lines has attracted a new, exuberant cohort of researchers who may not be familiar with the regulations and standards governing donation of human tissue. Scientists should ask donors to agree to some basic rules for research involving induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines derived from their(More)
We present a novel method for the study of the aggregation of protein induced by metal ion aluminum(III) using resonance Rayleigh scattering (RRS) technique. In neutral Tris-HCl medium, the effect of this aggregation of protein results in the enhancement of RRS intensity and the relationship between the enhancement of the RRS signal and the Al concentration(More)
A simple and sensitive nonchromatographic approach for indirect determination of sulfide at ultratrace levels in natural waters based on its selective precipitation with Hg2+ on the inner wall of a knotted reactor (KR) was developed for flow injection on-line sorption coupled with hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS). With the Hg2+(More)
Through extensive and systematic reviewing of literatures, this paper presents some thoughts on the existence of ion and water channels in highly dense and well-ordered CH(3)-terminated alkanethiol self-assembled monolayers (C(n)SH-SAMs) on gold: (1) based on the combinational effect of "the van der Waals interaction between the neighbor hydrocarbon(More)
The promotion effect of titania nanoparticles (nano-TiO(2)) on the direct electron transfer between lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and the silica sol-gel modified gold electrode was investigated by adding nano-TiO(2) (50 nm) in the modification process. This nano-TiO(2)-LDH electrode showed a pair of quasi-reversible cyclic voltammetry peaks with the formal(More)
The direct electrochemistry of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) immobilized in silica sol-gel film on gold electrode was investigated, and an obvious cathodic peak at about -200 mV (versus SCE) was found for the first time. The LDH-modified electrode showed a surface controlled irreversible electrode process involving a one electron transfer reaction with the(More)
This paper reports the electrochemical behavior of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) immobilized in the silica sol-gel film on gold electrode after adding nanometre-sized tridecameric aluminium polycation (nano-Al13, also called nanopolynuclear Al13) as a promoter. A pair of surface controlled quasi-reversible cyclic voltammetry peaks with the formal potential(More)
In this paper, we firstly report the direct voltammetric recognition and determination of dopamine (DA) by using Al(III)-DA complexes at the hanging mercury drop electrode (HMDE). A new sensitive cathodic peak of Al(III)-DA can be detected at -900 mV (vs. SCE) in 0.1 M NH(4)Cl-NH(3).H(2)O-0.1 M KCl buffer solution at pH 8.5. This unique -900 mV cathodic(More)
The interaction between double-strand calf thymus gland DNA (ds-DNA) and Al(III) was studied by using differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) at a hanging mercury drop electrode (HMDE), Raman spectrometry and circular dichroism (CD) spectra. It was shown that at neutral pH ds-DNA did not produce any cathodic peak at the HMDE in the potential window from -550(More)
