A prior knowledge of protein structural classes can provide useful information about its overall structure, so it is very important for quick and accurate determination of protein structural class with computation method in protein science. One of the key for computation method is accurate protein sample representation. Here, based on the concept of Chou’s(More)
A novel immunosensor for rapid separation-free determination of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in human serum is proposed. The immunosensor is prepared by co-immobilizing thionine and horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled CEA antibody on a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) through covalently binding them to GCE with a glutaraldehyde (GA) linkage. The(More)
DNA methylation plays a key role in the regulation of gene expression. The most common type of DNA modification consists of the methylation of cytosine in the CpG dinucleotide. The detections of DNA methylation have been determined mostly by experimental methods, which were time-consuming and expensive, difficult to meet the requirements of modern(More)
Identifying potential drug target proteins is a crucial step in the process of drug discovery and plays a key role in the study of the molecular mechanisms of disease. Based on the fact that the majority of proteins exert their functions through interacting with each other, we propose a method to recognize target proteins by using the human protein-protein(More)
A novel strategy for immunoassay and the preparation of reagentless immunosensors was proposed. This strategy was based on the immobilization of antigen and the direct electrochemistry of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) that was labeled to an antibody. A reagentless immunosensor for carcinoma antigen-125 (CA 125) determination was developed. The immunosensor(More)
Because a priori knowledge about function of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) can provide useful information to pharmaceutical research, the determination of their function is a quite meaningful topic in protein science. However, with the rapid increase of GPCRs sequences entering into databanks, the gap between the number of known sequence and the(More)
A convenient method is proposed for precise investigation of the asynchronous structural transition of the domains in bovine serum albumin (BSA) during unfolding process. The method is based on a site-selective probe, alizarin red S (ARS), which has a high affinity to the subdomain IIA of BSA. BSA-ARS complex was formed and gradually unfolded by urea from 0(More)
A sensor based on thionine monolayer modified gold electrode for determination of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in human serum is proposed. The sensor is prepared by covalently binding thionine to a cysteamine self-assembled monolayer with p-phthaloyl chloride as a linkage, which gives a surface coverage of 8.97+/-3.28 x 10(-12)mol/cm(2) for thionine. The(More)
A new simple immunoassay method for carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) detection using a disposable immunosensor coupled with a flow injection system was developed. The immunosensor was prepared by coating CEA/colloid Au/chitosan membrane at a screen-printed carbon electrode (SPCE). Using a competitive immunoassay format, the immunosensor inserted in the flow(More)
A rapid, convenient and accurate method for the simultaneous detection of guanine (G), adenine (A), thymine (T) and cytosine (C) was developed at a multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT)/choline (Ch) monolayer-modified glassy carbon electrode (GCE). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data demonstrated that Ch was covalently immobilised on the surface of GCE(More)
