DNA adsorption by magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and its application for arsenate detection
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-05-01)
Iron oxide nanoparticles adsorb fluorescently labeled DNA oligonucleotides via the backbone phosphate and quench fluorescence. Arsenate displaces adsorbed DNA to increase fluorescence, allowing detection of arsenate down ...
Cation-Size-Dependent DNA Adsorption Kinetics and Packing Density on Gold Nanoparticles: An Opposite Trend
(American Chemical Society, 2014-11-11)
The property of DNA is strongly influenced by counterions. Packing a dense layer of DNA onto a gold nanoparticle (AuNP) generates an interesting colloidal system with many novel physical properties such as a sharp melting ...
Tandem Phosphorothioate Modifications for DNA Adsorption Strength and Polarity Control on Gold Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2014-09-10)
Unmodified DNA was recently used to functionalize gold nanoparticles via DNA base adsorption. Compared to thiolated DNA, however, the application of unmodified DNA is limited by the lack of sequence generality, adsorption ...
Oxidation Level-Dependent Zwitterionic Liposome Adsorption and Rupture by Graphene-based Materials and Light-Induced Content Release
Liposomes may be stably adsorbed or ruptured on graphene-based materials, depending on the oxidation state of graphene. IR-induced liposome leakage is achieved, since graphene oxide does not induce liposome leakage spontaneously.
Photocatalytic performances of ZnO nanoparticle film and vertically aligned nanorods in chamber-based microfluidic reactors: Reaction kinetics and flow effects
(Elsevier BV, 2017-07-15)
The nanoparticle seed layer (a film) and vertically aligned nanorods of zinc oxide (ZnO) with different lengths were fabricated within a novel chamber-based microfluidic (microchamber) reactor with a varying height of ...
Orthogonal Adsorption Onto Nano-Graphene Oxide Using Different Intermolecular Forces for Multiplexed Delivery
Nano-graphene oxide can adsorb both doxorubicin and zwitterionic dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) liposomes in an orthogonal and non-competing manner with high capacities based on different surface and intermolecular ...
Rationally Designed Nucleobase and Nucleotide Coordinated Nanoparticles for Selective DNA Adsorption and Detection
(American Chemical Society, 2013-12-17)
Nanomaterials for DNA adsorption are useful for sequence-specific DNA detection. Current materials for DNA adsorption employ electrostatic attraction, hydrophobic interaction, or π–π stacking, none of which can achieve ...
Surface Science of DNA Adsorption onto Citrate-Capped Gold Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2012-02-28)
Single-stranded DNA can be adsorbed by citrate capped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), resulting in increased AuNP stability, which forms the basis of a number of biochemical and analytical applications, but the fundamental ...
Attaching DNA to Nanoceria: Regulating Oxidase Activity and Fluorescence Quenching
(American Chemical Society, 2013-08-14)
Cerium oxide nanoparticles (nanoceria) have recently emerged as a nanozyme with oxidase activity. In this work, we present a few important interfacial properties of nanoceria. First, the surface charge of nanoceria can be ...
Toward Fast and Quantitative Modification of Large Gold Nanoparticles by Thiolated DNA: Scaling of Nanoscale Forces, Kinetics, and the Need for Thiol Reduction
(American Chemical Society, 2013-08-01)
We have recently reported on the fast and quantitative adsorption of DNA to 13 nm gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) at pH 3. This is in contrast to most traditional methods at neutral pH, where the adsorption is both slow and ...
