Inhibition of p53-MDM2 interaction by small molecules is considered to be a promising approach to re-activate wild-type p53 for tumor suppression. Several inhibitors of the MDM2-p53 interaction were designed and studied by the experimental methods and the molecular dynamics simulation. However, the unbinding mechanism was still unclear. The steered(More)
The 14-3-3σ proteins are a family of ubiquitous conserved eukaryotic regulatory molecules involved in the regulation of mitogenic signal transduction, apoptotic cell death, and cell cycle control. A lot of small-molecule inhibitors have been identified for 14-3-3 protein-protein interactions (PPIs). In this work, we carried out molecular dynamics (MD)(More)
Reliable determination of binding kinetics and affinity of DNA hybridization and single-base mismatches plays an essential role in systems biology, personalized and precision medicine. The standard tools are optical-based sensors that are difficult to operate in low cost and to miniaturize for high-throughput measurement. Biosensors based on nanowire(More)
We demonstrate that continuous, uniform graphene films can be directly synthesized on quartz substrates using a two-temperature-zone chemical vapor deposition system and that their layers can be controlled by adjusting the precursor partial pressure. Raman spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy confirm the formation of monolayer graphene with a(More)
We present a graphene/Cu nanoparticle hybrids (G/CuNPs) system as a surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate for adenosine detection. The Cu nanoparticles wrapped by a monolayer graphene shell were directly synthesized on flat quartz by chemical vapor deposition in a mixture of methane and hydrogen. The G/CuNPs showed an excellent SERS enhancement(More)
Graphene shells with a controllable number of layers were directly synthesized on Cu nanoparticles (CuNPs) by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) to fabricate a graphene-encapsulated CuNPs (G/CuNPs) hybrid system for surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). The enhanced Raman spectra of adenosine and rhodamine 6G (R6G) showed that the G/CuNPs hybrid system can(More)
We have proposed a synthetic approach to produce self-supported and bendable surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-based 3D chemical sensors with high adsorptivity. Such 3D substrates consist of foam-like graphene macrostructures obtained by template-directed chemical vapour deposition on nickel foams (interconnected 3D scaffold of nickel) and uniform(More)
We describe the fabrication of highly sensitive graphene-based field effect transistor (FET) enzymatic biosensor for trace-detection of atrazine. The few-layers graphene films were prepared on polycrystalline copper foils by atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition method using an argon/hydrogen/methane mixture. The characteristics of graphene films(More)
A capacitive type biosensor based on large-area multilayer graphene produced by chemical vapor deposition was fabricated in this work. Graphene film was transferred to cover indium tin oxides films which were used as one electrode of the capacitor. Planar Au film was on the top of the graphene substrate as the other electrode of the capacitor. Between the(More)
