A new conducting polymer of biotinylated bis(2,2'-bithien-5-yl)methane was prepared and applied as the recognition unit of two different biosensors for selective oligonucleotide determination using either electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) or piezoelectric microgravimetry (PM) for label-free analytical signal transduction. For preparation of this(More)
We devised and prepared a conducting molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) for human serum albumin (HSA) determination using semi-covalent imprinting. The bis(2,2'-bithien-5-yl)methane units constituted the MIP backbone. This MIP was deposited as a thin film on an Au electrode by oxidative potentiodynamic electropolymerization to fabricate an electrochemical(More)
With an established procedure of molecular imprinting, a synthetic polymer receptor for the neopterin cancer biomarker was devised and used as a recognition unit of a potentiometric chemosensor. For that, bis-bithiophene derivatized with cytosine and bithiophene derivatized with boronic acid were used as functional monomers. The open-circuit potential (OCP)(More)
Thin films of conducting molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were prepared for simultaneous chronoamperometry (CA) and piezoelectric microgravimetry (PM) determination of several explosive nitroaromatic compounds (NTs) including 2,4,6-trinitrophenol (TNP), 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TNB), and 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT). For that,(More)
Recently, we presented a convenient method combining a deuterium-hydrogen exchange and electrospray mass spectrometry for studying high-pressure denaturation of proteins (Stefanowicz et al., Biosci Rep 2009; 30:91-99). Here, we present results of pressure-induced denaturation studies of an amyloidogenic protein-the wild-type human cystatin C (hCC) and its(More)
Two new bis(2,2'-bithienyl)methane derivatives, one with the zinc phthalocyanine substituent (ZnPc-S16) and the other with the 2-hydroxyethyl substituent (EtOH-S4), were synthesized to serve as functional monomers for biomimetic recognition of nicotine (Nic) by molecular imprinting. Formation of a pre-polymerization complex of the Nic template with ZnPc-S16(More)
A new strategy of simple, inexpensive, rapid, and label-free single-nucleotide-polymorphism (SNP) detection using robust chemosensors with piezomicrogravimetric, surface plasmon resonance, or capacitive impedimetry (CI) signal transduction is reported. Using these chemosensors, selective detection of a genetically relevant oligonucleotide under FIA(More)
A molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was designed and synthesized to serve as a functional material for selective recognition of 6-thioguanine (6TG), an antitumor drug. For that, the newly synthesized functional monomer, cytosine-bis(2,2'-bithienyl)-(4-carboxyphenyl)methane ester (Cyt-S4), revealed Watson-Crick type nucleobase pairing of 6TG. Formation of(More)
The propensity of 5-selenocyanatouracil (SeCNU) to decomposition induced by attachment of electron was scrutinized with the G3B3 composite quantum-chemical method and radiolytic studies. Favorable thermodynamic (Gibbs free reaction energy of -13.65 kcal/mol) and kinetic (Gibbs free activation energy of 1.22 kcal/mol) characteristics revealed by the G3B3(More)
A novel recognition unit of chemical sensor for selective determination of the inosine, renal disfunction biomarker, was devised and prepared. For that purpose, inosine-templated molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) film was deposited on an extended-gate field-effect transistor (EG-FET) signal transducing unit. The MIP film was prepared by electrochemical(More)
