Growth inhibition of recombinant Escherichia coli during the expression of human epidermal growth factor was observed. The recombinant cells could be segregated into three populations based on their cell division and plasmid maintenance abilities: dividing and plasmid-bearing cells, dividing and plasmid-free cells, and viable-but-non-culturable (VBNC)(More)
Based on the ability of lysine (Lys) to enhance the fluorescence intensity of bovine serum albumin modified-carbon dots (CDs-BSA) to decrease surface defects and quench fluorescence of the CDs-BSA-Lys system in the presence of Cu(2+) under conditions of phosphate buffer (PBS, pH = 5.0) at 45 °C for 10 min, a sensitive Lys enhancing CDs-BSA fluorescent probe(More)
Lonicera maackii (Rupr.) Maxim. (Amur honeysuckle) is native to Asia and an important ornamental in China. However, the anatomy of leaf abscission (shedding) in L. maackii had not been studied previously. Such work is needed not only because knowledge of the leaf abscission process is important for a horticultural species like L. maackii but also because(More)
A novel fluorescent probe (Zr(CDs-COO)(2)EDTA) has been designed for fluoride ion (F(-)) content detection based on the competitive ligand reactions carried out between the carboxylate groups (-COOH) on the surface of the luminescent carbon dots (CDs) and F(-) coordinated to Zr(H(2)O)(2)EDTA. The strong and stable fluorescence signal of this probe was(More)
Taking advantage of the cutting effect of the strong oxidation of benzoyl peroxide [(C(6)H(5)CO)(2)O(2)] on the end of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) to obtain water-soluble multiwall nanotubes (MWNTs') and the spiking effect of polyacrylamide (PA) on the room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) of MWNTs', a new phosphorescent labeling reagent, MWNTs'-PA,(More)
Procaterol hydrochloride (Prh) can inhibit KClO3 oxidation of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) to form a non-phosphorescent compound, which causes room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) of FITC in the system to enhance sharply the linear relationship between ∆Ip and the Prh content. Thus, a rapid response and highly sensitive phosphorescence sensor for the(More)
A label-free non-aggregation colorimetric sensor has been designed for the detection of Cu(2+), based on Cu(2+) catalyzing etching of gold nanorods (AuNRs) along longitudinal axis induced by dissolve oxygen in the presence of S2O3(2-), which caused the aspect ratio (length/width) of AuNRs to decrease and the color of the solution to distinctly change. The(More)
The active -OH group in fullerol (F-ol) could react with the dissociated -COOH group in fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) to form F-ol-(FITC)(n), which could emit room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) signal of F-ol and FITC on acetate cellulose membrane (ACM), respectively. Their RTP signals were enhanced by N,N-dimethylaniline (DMA). The labeling(More)
The rhodamine 6G(+) -perphenazine (Rhod 6G(+) -PPH) compound is formed in the ester-exchange reaction between -OH of PPH and -COOC2 H5 of Rhod 6G(+) . PPH was oxidized to a red compound (PPH') in the presence of K2 S2 O8 . Interestingly, the room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) of Rhod 6G(+) was quenched because the -OH of PPH' reacted with -COOC2 H5 of(More)
Fluorescein (HFin) could emit strong and stable room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) signal on polyamide membrane (PAM) using Pb2+ as the ion perturber. Carbaryl could activate effect on NaIO4 oxidating HFin, which caused the RTP signal of the system to quench sharply. The phosphorescence intensity (ΔI p) of activating system higher 3.3 times (119.4/36.0)(More)
