The effects of Se(IV) on the structure and function of recombinant human arsenic (+3 oxidation state) methyltransferase (AS3MT) purified from the cytoplasm of Escherichia coli were studied. The coding region of human AS3MT complementary DNA was amplified from total RNA extracted from HepG2 cell by reverse transcription PCR. Soluble and active human AS3MT(More)
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS) has been successfully used for the detection of element-tagged biomolecules with the advantage of multielement capability. However, this technique cannot be used for microarray detection due to the necessity to dissolve the elemental tags before introducing them to the plasma source. Here, we report the(More)
BACKGROUND An inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS)-based immunoassay has been proposed independently by Baranov et al. (Anal Chem 2002;74:1629-36) and our group, but the applicability of this method for multianalyte analysis in clinical samples has not been fully illustrated. We developed a dual-label immunoassay method for the simultaneous(More)
A highly sensitive immunoassay is proposed based on time-resolved inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry with nanoparticles as tags to antibody. Instead of using traditional integral mode detection, the transient signals induced by the flash of ions in the plasma torch from the ionization of nanoparticles tagged on antibody were recorded in a(More)
A multiplex DNA assay based on nanoparticle (NP) tags detection utilizing single particle mode inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (SP-ICP-MS) as ultrasensitive readout has been demonstrated in the article. Three DNA targets associated with clinical diseases (HIV, HAV, and HBV) down to 1 pM were detected by DNA probes labeled with AuNPs, AgNPs, and(More)
The unambiguous quantification of biomolecules is of great significance in fundamental biological research as well as practical clinical diagnosis. Due to the lack of a detectable moiety, the direct and highly sensitive quantification of biomolecules is often a "mission impossible". Consequently, tagging strategies to introduce detectable moieties for(More)
