We report the development of a novel single-step, multiplexed, homogeneous immunoassay platform for sensitive detection of protein targets based on our realization of high surface-enhanced raman spectroscopy (SERS) signal enhancement by controlled assembly of SERS nanoparticles. An essential design of this platform is the use of gold nanoparticles or(More)
Previous studies suggested that activated c-Src promote the tyrosine phosphorylation of NMDA receptor subunit NR2A, and thus aggravate the injury induced by transient cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) in rat hippocampus CA1 region. In this study, we examined the effect of nitric oxide (NO) on the activation of c-Src and the tyrosine phosphorylation of(More)
A simple, rapid, sensitive and selective method for simultaneously determining xanthopterin and isoxanthopterin content in human urine has been developed using synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy based on their intrinsic fluorescence. The synchronous fluorescence spectra were obtained with Δλ = 65 nm in a pH 8.5 KH2PO4-NaOH buffer solution. The detected(More)
Aim: Sesamin is one of the major lignans in sesame seeds with antihyperlipidemic, antioxidative and antihypertensive activities. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of sesamin on arterial function in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Methods: SHRs were orally administered sesamin (40, 80 and 160 mg·kg·d) for 16 weeks. After the rats were(More)
Representing a compound by a numerous structural descriptors becomes common in quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies. As every descriptor carries molecular structure information more or less, it seems more advisable to investigate all the possible descriptor vectors rather than traditional variable selection when building a QSAR model.(More)
The support vector machine (SVM) has been receiving increasing interest in an area of QSAR study for its ability in function approximation and remarkable generalization performance. However, selection of support vectors and intensive optimization of kernel width of a nonlinear SVM are inclined to get trapped into local optima, leading to an increased risk(More)
Development of novel aptamer sensor strategies for rapid and selective assays of protein biomarkers plays crucial roles in proteomics and clinical diagnostics. Herein, we have developed a novel aptamer sensor strategy for homogeneous detection of protein targets based on fluorescence protection assay. This strategy is based on our reasoning that interaction(More)
DNA phosphorylation, catalyzed by polynucleotide kinase (PNK), plays significant regulatory roles in many biological events. Here, a novel fluorescent nanosensor based on phosphorylation-specific exonuclease reaction and efficient fluorescence quenching of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) by a WS2 nanosheet has been developed for monitoring the activity of PNK(More)
Protein post-translational modifications (PTMs), which are chemical modifications and most often regulated by enzymes, play key roles in functional proteomics. Detection of PTM enzymes, thus, is critical in the study of cell functioning and development of diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Herein, we develop a simple peptide-templated method to direct rapid(More)
Genotyping of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is a central challenge in disease diagnostics and personalized medicine. A novel label-free homogeneous SNP genotyping technique is developed on the basis of ligation-mediated strand displacement amplification (SDA) with DNAzyme-based chemiluminescence detection. Discrimination of single-base mismatches(More)
