Inspired from the funtioning and responsiveness of biological ion channels, researchers attempt to develop biosensing systems based on polymer and solid-state nanochannels. The applicability of these nanochannels for detection/sensing of any foreign analyte in the surrounding environment depends critically on the surface characteristics of the inner walls.(More)
Three Schiff base compounds ofN'-substituted benzohydrazide and sulfonohydrazide derivatives: N'-(2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)-4-tert-butyl- benzohydrazide (1), N'-(5-bromo-2-hydroxybenzylidene)-4-tert-butylbenzohydrazide (2) and N'-(2-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)-4-methylbenzenesulfonohydrazide (3) were synthesized and characterized by elemental(More)
In the title compound, C 15 H 13 NO 3 S, the benzene ring and the five-membered heterocyclic ring are oriented at a dihedral angle of 12.00 (6)°. In the crystal, C-H O interactions generate two types of cyclic motifs, R 2 2 (14) and R 2 2 (26), connecting the molecules into tapes extending along [101]. In addition, there are-stacking interactions between(More)
The green synthesis of metallic nanoparticles (NPs) has attracted tremendous attention in recent years because these protocols are low cost and more environmentally friendly than standard methods of synthesis. In this article, we report a simple and eco-friendly method for the synthesis of silver NPs using an aqueous solution of Pulicaria glutinosa plant(More)
Sulfite oxidase is a mitochondria-located molybdenum-containing enzyme catalyzing the oxidation of sulfite to sulfate in the amino acid and lipid metabolism. Therefore, it plays a major role in detoxification processes, where defects in the enzyme cause a severe infant disease leading to early death with no efficient or cost-effective therapy in sight. Here(More)
Surface bound silicatein retains its biocatalytic activity, which was demonstrated by monitoring the immobilisation of silicatein using a histidine-tag chelating anchor and the subsequent biosilicification of SiO(2) on surfaces by surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
In the title compound, C 21 H 16 N 2 O 2 , the five-membered heterocyclic ring makes a dihedral angle of 47.06 (6)° with the attached benzene ring, whereas the indan-1,3-dione ring system and the benzene ring are oriented at a dihedral angle of 21.92 (7)°. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of C-H O hydrogen bonds generate R 2 2 (22) loops.(More)
The siliceous spicules of sponges (Porifera) show great variations of sizes, shapes and forms; they constitute the chief supporting framework of these animals; these skeletal elements are synthesized enzymatically by silicatein. Each sponge species synthesizes at least two silicateins, which are termed -alpha and -beta. In the present study, using the(More)
