Adsorption of DNA onto gold nanoparticles and graphene oxide: surface science and applications
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-06-28)
The interaction between DNA and inorganic surfaces has attracted intense research interest, as a detailed understanding of adsorption and desorption is required for DNA microarray optimization, biosensor development, and ...
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 ...
Self-healable and reversible liposome leakage by citrate-capped gold nanoparticles probing initial adsorption/desorption induced lipid phase transition
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-10-14)
We herein report that the adsorption/desorption of citrate-capped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) transiently causes leakage in fluid phase DOPC liposomes, while the liposomes do not leak with AuNPs capped with mercaptopropionic ...
A platinum shell for ultraslow ligand exchange: unmodified DNA adsorbing more stably on platinum than thiol and dithiol on gold
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-04)
Due to the ultraslow ligand exchange rate on Pt, non-thiolated DNA is adsorbed on platinum nanoparticles (PtNPs) more stably than thiolated and even dithiolated DNA on AuNPs. Adsorption kinetics, capacity and stability are ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
