Adsorption of DNA Oligonucleotides by Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2014-01-28)
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) or titania shows great promise in detoxification and drug delivery. To reach its full potential, it is important to interface TiO2 with biomolecules to harness their molecular recognition function. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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.
Polarity Control for Nonthiolated DNA Adsorption onto Gold Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2013-05-21)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) functionalized with thiolated DNA have enabled many studies in nanoscience. The strong thiol/gold affinity and the nanoscale curvature of AuNPs allow the attached DNA to adapt an upright conformation ...
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 ...
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 ...
Mechanisms of DNA Sensing on Graphene Oxide
(American Chemical Society, 2013-08-20)
Adsorption of a fluorophore-labeled DNA probe by graphene oxide (GO) produces a sensor that gives fluorescence enhancement in the presence of its complementary DNA (cDNA). While many important analytical applications have ...
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 ...
DNA Adsorption by Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) Nanoparticles
(American Chemical Society, 2015-01-13)
The high conductivity and optical transparency of indium tin oxide (ITO) has made it a popular material in the electronic industry. Recently, its application in biosensors is also explored. To understand its biointerface ...
