Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) are tiny light-emitting particles that have emerged as a new class of fluorescent labels for biology and medicine. Compared with traditional fluorescent probes, QDs have unique optical and electronic properties such as size-tuneable light emission, narrow and symmetric emission spectra, and broad absorption spectra that(More)
Per-butanoylated N-acetyl-D-mannosamine (Bu(4)ManNAc), a SCFA-hexosamine cancer drug candidate with activity manifest through intact n-butyrate-carbohydrate linkages, reduced the invasion of metastatic MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells unlike per-butanoylated-D-mannose (Bu(5)Man), a clinically tested compound that did not alter cell mobility. To gain(More)
The growing prevalence of resistant Gram-positive pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus continues to pose a dilemma to clinicians. With strains developing reduced susceptibility to vancomycin, effective and well-tolerated antibiotics to combat these resistant pathogens are needed. Ceftaroline is a new parenteral cephalosporin that(More)
