In this work, a novel fluorescence "turn off-on" nanosensor for the determination of heparin and heparinase based on CuInS2 quantum dots (QDs) was established. CuInS2 QDs (modified by l-cysteine) featuring amino groups were directly prepared in aqueous solution via a hydrothermal synthesis method. The amino groups on the surface of CuInS2 QDs can interact(More)
In this study, we reported a convenient label-free fluorescence nanosensor for rapid detection of acid phosphatase on the basis of aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) and enzymolysis approach. The selectivity nanosensor was based on the fluorescence "turn off-on" mode, which possessed high sensitivity features. The original strong fluorescence intensity of(More)
In this paper, a novel daunorubicin (DNR)-loaded MUC1 aptamer-near infrared (NIR) CuInS2 quantum dot (DNR-MUC1-QDs) conjugates were developed, which can be used as a targeted cancer imaging and sensing system. After the NIR CuInS2 QDs conjugated with the MUC1 aptamer-(CGA)7, DNR can intercalate into the double-stranded CG sequence of the MUC1-QDs. The(More)
This paper describes a novel, simple method for the highly sensitive and selective detection of thrombin using fibrinogen (Fib) and CuInS(2) quantum dots (QDs) as biosensing probes. Water-soluble near-infrared CuInS(2) QDs capped by mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) were directly synthesized by a hydrothermal method. Addition of fibrinogen to the CuInS(2) QDs(More)
In this work, a novel multiplex electrochemiluminescence (ECL) DNA sensor has been developed for determination of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) based on multicolor CdTe quantum dots (CdTe QDs) and Au nanoparticles (Au NPs). The electrochemically synthesized graphene nanosheets (GNs) were selected as conducting bridge to anchor CdTe(More)
In this paper, we developed a near-infrared mercaptopropionic acid (MPA)-capped CuInS2 quantum dot (QD) fluorescence probe for the detection of acid phosphatases (ACP), which is an important biomarker and indicator of prostate cancer. The fluorescence of CuInS2 QDs could be quenched by Cu(2+), and then the addition of adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) could(More)
A new anticancer drug delivery system was developed based on the electrostatic complex of positively charged CuInS2 quantum dots (QDs) and negatively charged poly(l-glutamic acid) (PGA) conjugated with the model anticancer drug doxorubicin (DOX). Water-soluble near-infrared CuInS2 QDs capped with l-cysteine were directly synthesized by a hydrothermal(More)
Recent proliferation of hydro-dams was one of the nature-based solutions to meet the increasing demand for energy and food in the Lower Mekong River Basin (LMRB). While construction of these hydro-dams generated some hydropower and facilitated expansion of irrigated lands, it also significantly altered the basin-wide hydrology and subsequently impacted(More)
3'-5' Exonuclease activities play key roles in maintaining genome stability, so the detection of 3'-5' exonuclease activity is very important for diseases diagnosis and drug development. In this paper, we established a simple, sensitive, low-cost and label-free method to detect the activity of exonuclease III (Exo III) by using double-strand DNA(More)
Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon nanomaterial one atom thick. Interactions between graphene oxide (GO) and ssDNA containing different numbers of bases have been proved to be remarkably different. In this paper we propose a novel approach for turn-on fluorescence sensing determination of glucose. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is produced by glucose(More)
