A critical challenge in surface-based biomolecular detection is the reduced accessibility of target molecules to probes arranged on a heterogeneous surface compared to probe–target recognition in homogeneous solution. [ 1–5 ] To improve the recognition abilities of such heterogeneous surface probes, much effort has been devoted to control the surface(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified as promising cancer biomarkers due to their stable presence in serum. As an alternative to PCR-based homogenous assays, surface-based electrochemical biosensors offer great opportunities for low-cost, point-of-care tests (POCTs) of disease-associated miRNAs. Nevertheless, the sensitivity of miRNA sensors is often(More)
Wheat MAPK member TaMPK4 responds to abiotic stresses of Pi and N deprivations and high salinity and is crucial in regulating plant tolerance to aforementioned stresses. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are important signal transduction modules in regulating plant responses to various environmental stresses. In this study, a wheat MAPK(More)
The sensitivity of aptamer-based electrochemical sensors is often limited by restricted target accessibility and surface-induced perturbation of the aptamer structure, which arise from imperfect packing of probes on the heterogeneous and locally crowded surface. In this study, we have developed an ultrasensitive and highly selective electrochemical(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are key regulators of a wide range of cellular processes, and have been identified as promising cancer biomarkers due to their stable presence in serum. As an surface-based electrochemical biosensors which offer great opportunities for low-cost, point-of-care tests (POCTs) of disease-associated miRNAs. Nevertheless, the sensitivity of(More)
Because of the short size and low abundance of microRNAs, it is challenging to develop fast, inexpensive, and simple biosensors to detect them. In this work, we have demonstrated a new generation (the third generation) of E-DNA sensor for the sensitive and specific detection of microRNAs. Our third generation of E-DNA sensor can sensitively detect microRNA(More)
1. DN604 is a new platinum agent with encouraging anticancer activity. The present study was to explore the pharmacokinetic profiles, distribution and excretion of platinum in Sprague-Dawley rats after intravenous administration of DN604. A sensitive and selective inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) method was established for determination(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are conserved signal-transducing modules that have important functions in plant growth and development as well as in diverse biotic and abiotic stress responses. In this study, six MAP kinase kinase kinase genes, two MAP kinase kinase genes, and 11 MAP kinase genes in wheat were characterized. The MAPK(More)
Microarrays of biomolecules have greatly promoted the development of the fields of genomics, proteomics, and clinical assays because of their remarkably parallel and high-throughput assay capability. Immobilization strategies for biomolecules on a solid support surface play a crucial role in the fabrication of high-performance biological microarrays. In(More)
The development of sensitive telomerase biosensors is hindered by the restricted accessibility of telomere strand (TS) primer and the limited enzyme reaction space, which is mainly confined by the vertical distance. In this work, we designed an electrochemical telomerase biosensor based on a spired DNA tetrahedron TS primer (STTS). By adding a rigid dsDNA(More)
