Biomimetic sensing based on chemically induced assembly of a signaling DNA aptamer on a fluid bilayer membrane (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-04-18)The adenosine aptamer was split into two halves and linked to a fluid liposome surface; addition of adenosine resulted in aptamer assembly, which did not occur if the split aptamer was attached to silica nanoparticles, ...
(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 ...
(Wiley, 2012-02-10)Fluorescence energy transfer to graphene oxide is studied using covalently linked DNA probes ranging from 4 to 70 base pairs. The characteristic distance and mechanism of energy transfer are reported.
Metal-Induced Specific and Nonspecific Oligonucleotide Folding Studied by FRET and Related Biophysical and Bioanalytical Implications (Wiley, 2012-01-13)Metal induced nucleic acid folding has been extensively studied with ribozymes, DNAzymes, tRNA and riboswitches. These RNA/DNA molecules usually have a high content of double-stranded regions to support a rigid scaffold. ...
