Non-invasive detection of cellular bioelectricity based on carbon nanotube devices for high-throughput drug screening
Nanoelectronic biosensors based on readily fabricated networks of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT-net) were used to non-invasively detect cellular bioelectrical signals. This nanotube approach promises applications ...
Interfacing live cells with nanocarbon substrates
Nanocarbon materials, including single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and graphene, promise various novel biomedical applications (e.g., nanoelectronic biosensing). In this Letter, we study the ability of SWCNT networks ...
The crosstalks between adipokines and catecholamines
Adipocytes, which secrete a spectrum of adipokines, play an integral role in metabolism via communications with other endocrine cells. In the present work, we have studied the interplays between adipokines and catecholamines, ...
Vesicular storage, vesicle trafficking, and secretion of leptin and resistin : the similarities, differences and interplays
Adipose tissue is a highly active endocrine organ secreting a variety of signaling molecules called adipokines. Leptin and resistin are two adipokines critically involved in metabolic homeostasis. Nevertheless, the secretory ...
Nanoelectronic detection of triggered secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines using CMOS compatible silicon nanowires
Nanotechnology, such as nanoelectronic biosensors, is bringing new opportunities and tools to the studies of cell biology, clinical applications, and drug discovery. In this study, cyrstalline silicon nanowire based ...
