Heme binds to amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) in the brain of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, thus forming Aβ-heme complexes and leading the characteristic pathological features of AD. The interaction between heme and Aβ might have important biological relevance to AD etiology. In this work, the electrochemical performances of heme after incubation with Aβ1-42,(More)
Amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) in its oligomeric form is often considered as the most toxic species in Alzheimer's disease (AD), and thus Aβ oligomer is a potentially promising candidate biomarker for AD diagnosis. The development of a sensitive and reliable method for monitoring the Aβ oligomer levels in body fluids is an urgent requirement in order to predict the(More)
A novel fluorescent Ag+ sensor was developed based on the label-free silver (I) specific oligonucleotide (SSO) and Thioflavine T (ThT) monomer-excimer switch. C-rich SSO which contain C-C mismatched base pairs can selectively bind to Ag+ ions and the formed duplexes which constructed by C-Ag+-C structure are thermally stabilized without largely altering the(More)
In the crystal structure of the title compound, {[Fe(2)(C(7)H(3)NO(4))(2)(H(2)O)(6)]·4H(2)O}(n), there are two types of coordination for the Fe(II) atoms. One Fe(II) atom is in a distorted octa-hedral N(2)O(4) environment, with two chelating rings from the pyridine-dicarboxyl-ate ligands and two O atoms from the water mol-ecules, while the other is in a(More)
In the title silver(I) coordination polymer, {[Ag(2)(C(6)H(5)N(2)O(2))(2)(H(2)O)(2)]·2H(2)O}(n), the [Ag(2)(μ(2)-H(2)O)(H(2)O)] cores are extended by anti-parallel 5-methyl-pyrazine-2-carboxyl-ate (L) ligands, forming a novel double-chain structure. Both Ag(+) cations show a distorted square-pyramidal coordination. Ag1 is bonded to two water molecules, one(More)
The crystal structure of the title compound, {[Fe(C(6)H(2)N(2)O(4))(H(2)O)(2)]·2H(2)O}(n), was synthesized by a diffusion method. It has a one-dimensional polymeric chain structure and the chains are further connected into a three-dimensional structure by hydrogen bonds. The Fe(II) ion has a distorted octa-hedral coordination environment, with two N and two(More)
