An acoustic wave sensor coated with an artificial biomimetic recognition element has been developed to selectively screen for nandrolone in the liquid phase. A highly specific covalently imprinted polymer (MIP) was spin coated onto one electrode of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) as a thin permeable film. Selective rebinding of the nandrolone was(More)
A piezoelectric sensor coated with an artificial biomimetic recognition element has been developed for the determination of L-menthol in the liquid phase. A highly specific noncovalently imprinted polymer (MIP) was cast in situ on to the surface of a gold-coated quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) electrode as a thin permeable film. Selective rebinding of the(More)
Current methods to find significantly under- and over-represented gene ontology (GO) terms in a set of genes consider the genes as equally probable "balls in a bag", as may be appropriate for transcripts in micro-array data. However, due to the varying length of genes and intergenic regions, that approach is inappropriate for deciding if any GO terms are(More)
A chemically coated piezoelectric sensor has been developed for the determination of PAHs in the liquid phase. An organic monolayer attached to the surface of a gold electrode of a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) via a covalent thiol-gold link complete with an ionically bound recognition element has been produced. This study has employed the PAH(More)
The primary structure of the acidic capsular polysaccharide of Escherichia coli K57 was elucidated by methylation analysis and 1D- and 2D-n.m.r. spectroscopy. The repeating unit was identified as a linear tetrasaccharide having the structure shown. ----2)-beta-D-Ribf-(1----4)-beta-D-Galp-(1----3)-alpha-D-GlcpNAc-( 1----4)-alpha - D-GalpA-(1----.
