Nucleic acid aptamers have long demonstrated the capacity to bind cells with high affinity so that they have been utilized to diagnose various important pathogens. In this study, a DNA aptamer library was on initial efforts developed to act as a specific reporter for rapid detection of enter toxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) K88 combined with(More)
The main goal of this study was to exploit low-cost and efficient sorbents for the removal and recovery of Cr(VI) in wastewater. Three supports of sawdust, polyurethane and alginate were applied to immobilize living and dead R. cohnii cells, respectively. There was a distinct increase in the Cr(VI) removal efficiency before and after the HCl-pretreatment.(More)
In this study, the first group of single-stranded DNA aptamers that are highly specific to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) K88 was obtained from an enriched oligonucleotide pool by the SELEX (Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment) procedure, during which the K88 fimbriae protein was used as the target and bovine serum albumin as(More)
In this paper, a panel of single-stranded DNA aptamers with high affinity and specificity against Salmonella Paratyphi A was selected from an enriched oligonucleotide pool by a whole-cell-Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) procedure, during which four other Salmonella serovars were used as counter-selection targets. It was(More)
The goal of this study was to develop an applied technique for the removal and recovery of heavy metal in wastewater. It is novel that the Cr(VI) could be adsorbed and recovered by bio-functional magnetic beads. Furthermore, the magnetic separation technology would make their separation more convenient. The beads were constituted by the powder of Rhizopus(More)
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) between a quantum dot as donor and an organic fluorophore as acceptor has been widely used for detection of nucleic acids and proteins. In this paper, we developed a new method, characterized by 605-nm quantum dot (605QD) fluorescence intensity increase and corresponding Cy5 fluorescence intensity decrease, to(More)
The rapid detection and separation of Staphylococcus aureus and group G Streptococcus was based on the affinity chromatography interactions between Fc fragment of human IgG and protein A/G (located on the cell wall of S. aureus and group G Streptococcus). In this case, immobilization of antibodies had to take place in a different and complementary way than(More)
In this study, 6-methylenandrosta-4-ene-3,17-dione and Hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) were used to form a complex, which could be then biotransformed by Arthrobacter simplex ATCC6946 to obtain the antitumor drug exemestane. The complex was analyzed by UV, DSC and TG techniques, while the products were analyzed by HPLC, NMR and MS. These results(More)
The aim of this study was to establish an IMS-MS/SPR technique for the detection of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and Staphylococcus protein A (SPA) at the same time, which consists of isolating S. aureus and trapping-enrichmenting its SPA by IMS, and the end point is determined by using either MS or SPR measurements. Magnetic bead (MB) containing(More)
