We present improved RF circuit modeling of a biosensing element based on a single-walled carbon nanotube combined interdigital capacitors at microwave frequencies. From the resultant circuit, the lumped element values for biomolecular binding are accurately obtained. It is thereby found that the completed RF circuit model shows excellent agreement with(More)
Glucose/O(2) biofuel cells with an improved power density were developed, using polypyrrole (PPy) nanowires containing glucose oxidase and 8-hydroxyquinoline-5-sulfonic acid hydrate as an anode. The PPy nanowire anode was made by electropolymerizing within the nanopores of an anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) template, and then dissolving the AAO template. The(More)
Glucose/O(2) biofuel cells (BFCs) with an improved power density and stability were developed, using glucose oxidase (GOD) nanotubes with polypyrrole (PPy)-carbon nanotubes (CNTs)-GOD layers deposited on their surface as an anode and a PPy-laccase-2,2'-azinobis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonate) diammonium salt (ABTS) film type cathode. The GOD nanotubes(More)
LDL plays an important role in atherosclerotic plaque formation and macrophage differentiation. However, there is no report regarding the oxidation degree of LDL and macrophage differentiation. Our study has shown that the differentiation into M1 or M2 macrophages is related to the lipid oxidation level of LDL. Based on the level of lipid peroxidation, LDL(More)
We have developed RGD-attached gold (Au) half-shell nanoparticles containing methotrexate (MTX) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), where MTX is the most widely used disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) for the treatment of RA, and RGD peptide is a targeting moiety for inflammation. Upon near-infrared (NIR) irradiation, heat is locally(More)
We have developed a carbon nanotube (CNT) film-based biosensor with a metal semiconductor field effect transistor structure (MESFET). A gold top gate was deposited on the middle of the CNT channel and probe antibodies were immobilized on the gold top gate with an antibody-binding protein, protein G or Escherichia coli outer membrane (OM) with autodisplayed(More)
In this paper, a feasibility of using double split ring resonator (DSRR) having negative permeability as a biosensor has been demonstrated. The compact DSRR has been excited by a microstrip transmission line, and the DNA hybridization in which single-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (ss-DNA) is coupled with a complementary deoxyribonucleic acid (c-DNA), it is(More)
