Immobilization of recombinant vault nanoparticles on solid substrates
Native vaults are nanoscale particles found abundantly in the cytoplasm of most eukaryotic cells. They have a capsule-like structure with a thin shell surrounding a “hollow” interior compartment. Recombinant vault particles ...
Amphiphilic graphene composites
Both kinds of solubility: An amphiphilic reduced graphene oxide (rGO) composite is synthesized by using a novel coil-rod-coil conjugated triblock copolymer as the π–π binding stabilizer. Such a graphene-based composite can ...
Nanolithography of single-layer graphene oxide films by atomic force microscopy
Atomic force microscopy-based nanolithography is used to generate the single-layer graphene oxide (GO) patterns on Si/SiO2 substrates. In this process, a Si tip is used to scratch GO films, resulting in GO-free trenches. ...
Centimeter-long and large-scale micropatterns of reduced graphene oxide films : fabrication and sensing applications
Recently, the field-effect transistors (FETs) with graphene as the conducting channels have been used as a promising chemical and biological sensors. However, the lack of low cost and reliable and large-scale preparation ...
Surface-induced synthesis and self-assembly of metal suprastructures
A systematic study on the synthesis of a series of self-assembled suprastructures, such as cubes, stars, belts, and microspheres, of Ag nanoparticles (AgNPs) in borosilicate glassware heavily cleaned with aqua regia is ...
Surface immobilized cholera toxin B subunit (CTB) facilitates vesicle docking, trafficking and exocytosis
The subunit B of cholera toxin (CTB), which specifically binds with ganglioside GM1 enriched in membrane lipid rafts, is known to interfere with multiple cell functions. However, the specific, stable and spatially ...
Conjugated-polyelectrolyte-functionalized reduced graphene oxide with excellent solubility and stability in polar solvents
Conjugated-polyelectrolyte (CPE)-functionalized reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets are synthesized for the first time by taking advantage of a specially designed CPE, PFVSO3, with a planar backbone and charged sulfonate ...
Adhesion, proliferation, and gene expression profile of human umbilical vein endothelial cells cultured on bilayered polyelectrolyte coatings composed of glycosaminoglycans
This study characterized human umbilical vein endothelial cell HUVEC adhesion, proliferation, and gene expression on bilayered polyelectrolyte coatings composed of an outermost layer of glycosaminoglycans hyaluronan, ...
Polyphenylene dendrimer-templated in situ construction of inorganic–organic hybrid rice-shaped architectures
A novel dendrimer-templating method for the synthesis of CuO nanoparticles and the in situ construction of ordered inorganic–organic CuO–G2Td(COOH)16rice-shaped architectures (RSAs) with analogous monocrystalline structures ...
All-carbon electronic devices fabricated by directly grown single-walled carbon nanotubes on reduced graphene oxide electrodes
A simple method for fabrication of all carbon CNT-rGO devices was developed, where the individual long-aligned SWCNT directly grew by CVD to connect with rGO electrodes scratched by non-metal objects.
