Modified oligonucleotides: synthesis and strategy for users.
The range, scope, and practical utility of chemically modified oligonucleotides that contain backbone, base, and sugar modifications to investigate the mechanism and stereochemical aspects of biochemical reactions are reviewed.
Self-Exfoliated Guanidinium-Based Ionic Covalent Organic Nanosheets (iCONs).
Three self-exfoliated guanidinium halide based ionic covalent organic nanosheets with antimicrobial property are synthesized and a mixed matrix membrane is devised which could be useful for antimicrobial coatings with plausible medical benefits.
Self-templated chemically stable hollow spherical covalent organic framework.
A detailed time-dependent study of hollow sphere formation reveals that an inside-out Ostwald ripening process is responsible for the hollow sphere formed, and the synthesized covalent organic framework hollow spheres are highly porous and chemically stable, due to the presence of strong intramolecular hydrogen bonding.
The many facets of adenine: coordination, crystal patterns, and catalysis.
The emerging use ofAdenine nucleobase for the design of metal-nucleobase frameworks and the use of supramolecular adenine coordination complexes for transferring molecular properties onto surfaces is described.
ATCUN‐like metal‐binding motifs in proteins: Identification and characterization by crystal structure and sequence analysis
The amino terminal Cu(II)‐ and Ni(II)‐binding (ATCUN) motif is a small metal‐binding site found in the N‐terminus of many naturally occurring proteins. The ATCUN motif has been implicated in DNA
Photo-degradation of curcumin in the presence of TiO2 nanoparticles: Fundamentals and application
Abstract Photo-degradation of curcumin in the presence of TiO 2 nanoparticles has been studied in water–methanol and water–acetonitrile mixed solvents. Curcumin was found to form charge transfer (CT)
In vitro HER2 protein-induced affinity dissociation of carbon nanotube-wrapped anti-HER2 aptamers for HER2 protein detection.
The developed assay can be an effective approach in detecting native forms of disease biomarkers in free solutions or in biological samples, for accurate diagnosis, and was demonstrated to be effective in detecting human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) protein.
Synthesis and characterization of nucleobase-carbon nanotube hybrids.
The presence of aligned and randomly oriented CNTs and their ability to coordinate with metal ions make this class of materials very interesting for applications in the development of novel electronic devices and as new supports for different catalytic transformations.
Synthesis of naphthalenesulfonic acid small molecules as selective inhibitors of the DNA polymerase and ribonuclease H activities of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase.
The most potent derivative was a nonsymmetric cholesterol-linked 4-amino-5-hydroxy-2,7-naphthalenedisulfonic acid analogue, compound 23, which demonstrated an IC50 value of 0.06 microM for inhibiting RDDP activity.
Formation of efficient catalytic silver nanoparticles on carbon nanotubes by adenine functionalization.
The catalytic efficiency of the resulting species was assessed in the oxidation of 2-methylhydroquinone to its corresponding benzoquinone, with complete recovery and without loss of activity of the catalyst.
