Fluorescent graphene quantum dot nanoprobes for the sensitive and selective detection of mercury ions.
Graphene quantum dots were prepared by ultrasonic route and served as a highly selective water-soluble probe for sensing of Hg(2+). The fluorescence emission spectrum of graphene quantum dots was at about 430nm. In the presence of Hg(2+), the fluores

glycol chitosan fluorescent nanoconjugates.
In this study, novel carbohydrate-based nanoconjugates combining chemically modified chitosan with semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) were designed and synthesised via single-step aqueous route at room temperature. Glycol chitosan (G-CHI) was used as t

Multifunctional quantum dot DNA hydrogels.
Biotemplated nanomaterials offer versatile functionality for multimodal imaging, biosensing, and drug delivery. There remains an unmet need for traceable and biocompatible nanomaterials that can be synthesized in a precisely controllable manner. Here

A quantum dot-based microRNA nanosensor for point mutation assays.
We have developed a quantum dot-based microRNA nanosensor for point mutation assays using primer generation-mediated rolling circle amplification. The proposed method exhibits high sensitivity with a detection limit of as low as 50.9 aM and a large d

A general strategy for label-free sensitive DNA detection based on quantum dot doping.
Development of rapid, sensitive, and cost-effective DNA detection is of great significance to meet the growing demand of disease diagnostics. Herein, we report a new general strategy for label-free sensitive in-solution DNA detection using quantum do

Poly(m-phenylenediamine)-based fluorescent nanoprobe for ultrasensitive detection of matrix metalloproteinase 2.
A novel fluorescence nanoprobe for the detection of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) has been developed by engineering the fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled peptide onto the surface of poly(m-phenylenediamine) (PMPD) nanoparticles through covalent

aptamer superstructure and its application for imaging of cancer cells.
In this work, a novel polymeric quantum dot/aptamer superstructure with a highly intense fluorescence was fabricated by a molecular engineering strategy and successfully applied to fluorescence imaging of cancer cells. The polymeric superstructure, w

Development of an aptamer-conjugated fluorescent nanoprobe for MMP2.
Matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) plays critical roles in various diseases, such as atherosclerosis and cancer, and has been suggested to contribute to the instability of atherosclerotic plaque. To visualize MMP2 in pathologic tissues, we developed a

A novel approach for fluorescent visualization of glycyrrhetic acid on a cell with a quantum dot.
Glycyrrhetic acid (GA), a pentacyclic triterpenoid derivative obtained from hydrolysis of glycyrrhizic acid, was found to have synergistic anti-asthmatic effects with the β2-adrenergic receptor (β2AR) agonist via the β2AR-mediated pathway. This study

Folding-based photoelectrochemical biosensor: binding-induced conformation change of a quantum dot-tagged DNA probe for mercury(II) detection.
Using CdS QD-tagged mercury-specific oligonucleotides, a novel folding-based photoelectrochemical sensor has been successfully fabricated for reagentless and highly sensitive Hg(2+) detection.
