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)
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)
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 method for solubilization of pristine fullerene (C(60)) in water was proposed by directly using bovine serum albumin (BSA) as a "solubilizer" by means of the unfolding mechanism. C(60) aqueous solution with a small distribution size, excellent dispersion stability and high dispersion concentration was obtained without the use of derivatization and organic(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)
Coumaphos, an organophosphorus pesticide (OP) used worldwide, has raised serious public concerns due to its positive association with major types of cancer. Herein, a novel method for attomolar coumaphos detection was developed on the basis of an electrochemical displacement immunoassay coupled with oligonucleotide sensing. An optimized displacement(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)
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 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 screen-printed three-electrode system is fabricated to prepare a novel disposable screen-printed immunosensor for rapid determination of alpha-1-fetoprotein (AFP) in human serum. The immunosensor is prepared by entrapping horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled AFP antibody in chitosan membrane to modify the screen-printed carbon electrode. The membrane is(More)
