Dissecting the effect of anions on Hg2+ detection using a FRET based DNA probe
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08-07)
Many biosensors have been developed to detect Hg2+ using thymine-rich DNA. While sensor response to various cations is often studied to demonstrate selectivity, the effect of anions has been largely overlooked. Anions may ...
Amplifying the Macromolecular Crowding Effect Using Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2012-01-11)
The melting temperature (Tm) of DNA is affected not only by salt but also by the presence of high molecular weight (MW) solutes, such as polyethylene glycol (PEG), acting as a crowding agent. For short DNAs in a solution ...
