A biosensing technique in which biomolecules capable of binding to specific analytes or ligands are first immobilized on one side of a metallic film. Light is then focused on the opposite side of the film to excite the surface plasmons, that is, the oscillations of free electrons propagating along the film's surface. The refractive index of light reflecting off this surface is measured. When the immobilized biomolecules are bound by their ligands, an alteration in surface plasmons on the opposite side of the film is created which is directly proportional to the change in bound, or adsorbed, mass. Binding is measured by changes in the refractive index. The technique is used to study biomolecular interactions, such as antigen-antibody binding.

Quantitative detection of individual cleaved DNA molecules on surfaces using gold nanoparticles and scanning electron microscope imaging. (1/1513)

Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most frequent type of human genetic variation. Recent work has shown that it is possible to directly analyze SNPs in unamplified human genomic DNA samples using the surface-invasive cleavage reaction followed by rolling circle amplification (RCA) labeling of the cleavage products. The individual RCA amplicon molecules were counted on the surface using fluorescence microscopy. Two principal limitations of such single-molecule counting are the variability in the amplicon size, which results in a large variation in fluorescence signal intensity from the dye-labeled DNA molecules, and a high level of background fluorescence. It is shown here that an excellent alternative to RCA labeling is tagging with gold nanoparticles followed by imaging with a scanning electron microscope. Gold nanoparticles have a uniform diameter (15 +/- 0.5 nm) and provide excellent contrast against the background of the silicon substrate employed. Individual gold nanoparticles are readily counted using publicly available software. The results demonstrate that the labeling efficiency is improved by as much as approximately 15-fold, and the signal-to-noise ratio is improved by approximately 4-fold. Detection of individual cleaved DNA molecules following surface-invasive cleavage was linear and quantitative over 3 orders of magnitude in amount of target DNA (10(-18)-10(-15) mol).  (+info)

Calixarene-encapsulated nanoparticles: self-assembly into functional nanomaterials. (2/1513)

Calixarenes are excellent surfactants for enhancing the dispersion and self-assembly of metal nanoparticles into well-defined structures, particularly those with unit length scales in the 10-100 nm size range. Particles within these ensembles are strongly coupled, giving rise to unique collective optical or magnetic properties. The self-assembled nanostructures described in this feature article include 2D arrays of colloidal Au nanoparticles with size-dependent plasmonic responses, and sub-100 nm Co nanoparticle rings with chiral magnetic states. These nanoparticle assemblies may be further developed for applications in chemical sensing based on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) and as binary elements for nonvolatile memory, respectively.  (+info)

A gold nanoparticle based approach for screening triplex DNA binders. (3/1513)

Nanoparticle assemblies interconnected with DNA triple helixes can be used to colorimetrically screen for triplex DNA binding molecules and simultaneously determine their relative binding affinities based on melting temperatures. Nanoparticles assemble only when DNA triple helixes form between DNA from two different particles and a third strand of free DNA. In addition, the triple helix structure is unstable at room temperature and only forms in the presence of triplex DNA binding molecules which stabilize the triple helix. The resulting melting transition of the nanoparticle assembly is much sharper and at a significantly higher Tm than the analogous triplex structure without nanoparticles. Upon nanoparticle assembly, a concomitant red-to-blue color change occurs. The assembly process and color change do not occur in the presence of duplex DNA binders and therefore provide a significantly better screening process for triplex DNA binding molecules compared to standard methods.  (+info)

Dye-labeled silver nanoshell-bright particle. (4/1513)

Silica beads with average diameters of 40-600 nm were prepared, and Ru(bpy)3(2+) complexes were incorporated into the beads. These beads were coated by silver layer by layer to generate porous but continuous metal nanoshells. The thicknesses of these metal shells were 5-50 nm. The emission band from the dyes in the silica cores was more narrow and the intensity was enhanced with growth of silver shell thickness due to coupling of the emission light from Ru(bpy)3(2+) in the cores with the metal plasmon from the silver shells. The enhancement of emission intensity was also dependent on the size of the silica core, showing that the enhancement efficiency decreased with an increase in the size of the silica beads. Lifetime measurements support the coupling mechanism between the dye and metal shell. This study can be used to develop novel dye-labeled metal particles with bright and narrow emission bands.  (+info)

Surface-enhanced fluorescence of fluorescein-labeled oligonucleotides capped on silver nanoparticles. (6/1513)

Tiopronin monolayer-protected silver nanoparticles with different core sizes (average diameter = 2, 5, 20 nm) were prepared by using different mole ratios of silver nitrate/tiopronin. Ligands on the silver particles were partially displaced by fluorescein-labeled thiolate single-stranded oligonucleotides or their complementary unlabeled oligonucleotides through ligand exchange. The fluorophores on silver particles showed a surface-enhanced fluorescence (SEF) dependent on the size of metallic cores. The particles could be coupled through hybridizations of oligonucleotides bound on the particles. The coupled particles were aggregated due to multiple displacements of oligonucleotides on each particle, resulting in stronger SEF. The dye-labeled oligonucleotides were assembled on the silver islands on the solid substrate, and the complementary oligonucleotide-displaced particles were coupled via oligonucleotide hybridization. The couplings between particles and islands resulted in an obvious fluorescence enhancement.  (+info)

Enhanced luminescence of phenyl-phenanthridine dye on aggregated small silver nanoparticles. (7/1513)

Tiopronin-coated silver particles (average diameters of core = 1.6 nm) were prepared by a modified Brust method, and the ligands on the metal core were partially displaced by (2-mercapto-propionylamino) acetic acid-2,5-dioxo-pyrrolidin-1-ylester through ligand exchanges. The particles were bound on amine-pendent polymer backbones by condensation to generate compact aggregates of particles. The aggregated particles displayed a plasmon absorbance rising at 440 nm. Luminescence was enhanced to about 2 times with increasing the plasmon rising by the particle aggregation upon excitation at 400 nm when the polymer was labeled by 3,8-diamino-6-phenyl-phenanthridine.  (+info)

c-Type cytochrome-dependent formation of U(IV) nanoparticles by Shewanella oneidensis. (8/1513)

Modern approaches for bioremediation of radionuclide contaminated environments are based on the ability of microorganisms to effectively catalyze changes in the oxidation states of metals that in turn influence their solubility. Although microbial metal reduction has been identified as an effective means for immobilizing highly-soluble uranium(VI) complexes in situ, the biomolecular mechanisms of U(VI) reduction are not well understood. Here, we show that c-type cytochromes of a dissimilatory metal-reducing bacterium, Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, are essential for the reduction of U(VI) and formation of extracellular UO(2) nanoparticles. In particular, the outer membrane (OM) decaheme cytochrome MtrC (metal reduction), previously implicated in Mn(IV) and Fe(III) reduction, directly transferred electrons to U(VI). Additionally, deletions of mtrC and/or omcA significantly affected the in vivo U(VI) reduction rate relative to wild-type MR-1. Similar to the wild-type, the mutants accumulated UO(2) nanoparticles extracellularly to high densities in association with an extracellular polymeric substance (EPS). In wild-type cells, this UO(2)-EPS matrix exhibited glycocalyx-like properties and contained multiple elements of the OM, polysaccharide, and heme-containing proteins. Using a novel combination of methods including synchrotron-based X-ray fluorescence microscopy and high-resolution immune-electron microscopy, we demonstrate a close association of the extracellular UO(2) nanoparticles with MtrC and OmcA (outer membrane cytochrome). This is the first study to our knowledge to directly localize the OM-associated cytochromes with EPS, which contains biogenic UO(2) nanoparticles. In the environment, such association of UO(2) nanoparticles with biopolymers may exert a strong influence on subsequent behavior including susceptibility to oxidation by O(2) or transport in soils and sediments.  (+info)

Abstract. Catalysts are crucial for the production of fuels, chemicals and materials and for energy storage and conversion. They often consist of transition metal nanoparticles (,10 nm) as an active phase, supported on a porous material that provides stability to the system, but has 3D open porosity to allow diffusion of reactants and products. The effectiveness of a catalyst is a combination of three qualities: activity, selectivity and stability. All three are not only determined by the composition of the metal nanoparticle, but also greatly depend on factors such as the exact particle size (and particle size distribution), a redistribution of atoms within the nanoparticle under reaction conditions, the interaction between the metal nanoparticle and the support, and small amounts of additives (promoters) which can modify for instance the electronic properties or provide specific sites.. We study the performance of supported metal nanoparticles using 3D model supports (ordered mesoporous ...
A composite with well-dispersed metal nanoparticles at a ceramic surface was produced by partial reduction of solid solution. It was found that a small amount of dopant, such as Al2O3, Cr2O3, or Sc2O3, accelerated the precipitation of the metal nanoparticles during the reduction. Catalytic performance of the composite for methanol reforming was evaluated. In the Ni-based catalysts, the dopant decreased the CO production by promoting a methanation reaction, while in the Co-based catalysts, the dopant did it by inducing a water-gas shift reaction. Co/MgO with Sc2O3 doping showed the most preferable reforming performance, high H2 production, and CO2 selectivity. ...

The research in this dissertation examines the chemistry and applications of dendrimers in homogeneous catalysis. We examined interactions between dendrimers and charged probe molecules, prepared dendrimer-encapsulated metal nanoparticles in organic solvents, studied size-selectivity of dendrimer-encapsulted catalysts, and designed molecular rulers as in-situ probes to measure the location of dendrimer-encapsulted metal nanoparticles. The intrinsic proton binding constant and a constant that characterizes the strength of electrostatic interactions among occupied binding sites in poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers have been obtained by studying the effect of solution pH on the protonation of the dendrimers. The significant finding is that these two factors are greatly modulated by the unique and hydrophobic microenvironment in the dendrimer interior. Hydrophilic poly(propylene imine) (PPI) dendrimers were modified with various hydrophobic alkyl chains through an amide linkage and were then used ...

Research theme: Catalyst Diagnostics to Develop More Active Catalysts. Raman spectroscopy is a powerful method for solid catalyst characterization under operando conditions. However, its sensitivity often hampers the detection of surface adsorbates and reaction intermediates. Shell-isolated nanoparticle-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SHINERS) has turned out to be a valuable addition to the catalyst characterization toolbox. SHINERS requires Au or Ag nanoparticles covered by a thin dielectric oxide coating, such as SiO2 or Al2O3, to minimize plasmonic side-reactions.. In this project, we will use spark ablation technology to deposit metal nanoparticles of various sizes and chemical compositions on shell-isolated Au and Ag nanoparticles (SHINs). These metal/SHINs will allow to investigate the adsorption of probe molecules, such as NO and CO, as well as performing structure-sensitive (e.g. CO2 and acetylene hydrogenation) and structure-insensitive (e.g. ethene hydrogenation) reactions under operando ...
The local surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) of noble metal nanoparticles has recently been exploited in numerous applications. The LSPR peak position and linewidth have been studied quite extensively, but the magnitude of the resonance has not received much attention. Analytical solutions to Maxwells Equations cannot predict the scattering cross section of arbitrarily-shaped particles at arbitrary illumination and detection angles. Dark field microscpectroscopy is a powerful tool for studying plasmon resonances of noble metal nanoparticles and for developing their applications in sensing and imaging. We present a technique for calibrating dark field microspectrometer measurements to yield quantitative spectral scattering cross sections for arbitrarily shaped particles. Values for gold nanorods and gold bipyramids are reported. The measurements suggest that, for small elongated particles, the signal can be predicted by approximations based on the total cross section ...

A combined theoretical and experimental approach has allowed researchers to predict and verify the full structure of a monolayer-coated molecular metal nanoparticle. The methodology was tested on silver-thiolate nanoparticles, expanding on earlier knowledge about gold nanoparticles, and is expected to be applicable to a broad range of sizes of nanoparticles made of different elements.. In a paper published Friday, November 25, 2016, in the journal Science Advances, researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Toledo report on an X-ray-determined structure that authenticates the a priori prediction, and in conjunction with first-principles theoretical analysis, supports the underlying forecasting methodology..

An international team of researchers led by RMIT has investigated alternatives to gold nanoparticles, which have been shown to concentrate radiation used to treat cancer but are highly expensive and mildly toxic.. Doctoral researcher Mamdooh Alqathami said the team had identified bismuth as an ideal option, with tests showing that enhancing radiotherapy by using nanoparticles containing the heavy metal almost doubled the dose of radiation to surrounding cancerous tissue.. By enhancing radiation in the tumour, doctors may be able to decrease the initial dose of radiotherapy, which will hopefully result in fewer side effects for the patient while having the same impact on the cancer, Mr Alqathami, a researcher in the School of Medical Sciences, said.. Metal nanoparticles have shown promise in improving the efficacy of radiotherapy but there is a need to find cheaper and safer alternatives for therapeutic use.. Bismuth-based nanoparticles are an attractive option as they cost only a few dollars ...

Conventional Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) processes involving a pair of fluorophore and organic quencher are restricted to an upper distance limit of ~10 nm. The application of a metal nanoparticle as a quencher can overcome the distance barrier of the traditional FRET technique. However, no standard distance dependence of this resonance energy transfer (RET) process has been firmly established. We have investigated the nonradiative energy transfer process between an organic donor (fluorescein) and gold nanoparticle quencher connected by double stranded (ds) DNA. The quenching efficiency of the gold nanoparticle as a function of distance between the donor and acceptor was determined by time-resolved lifetime analyses of the donor. Our results showed a 1/d 4 distance dependence for the RET process for longer distances (,10 nm) and 1/d 6 distance dependence for shorter distances (,10 nm). Our results clearly indicate the applicability of metal nanoparticle based quenchers for studying ...

Monolayer Protected Metal Nanoparticles have recently found widespread use in and are the focus of intensive study in many areas of scientific research ranging from biology to physics to medicine. Consisting of a nanoscale, crystalline, metallic core surrounded by a self-assembled monolayer of ligands (a 3-D SAM or ligand shell), their appeal and utility stem from their numerous unique properties-many of which arise and are modulated by the intimate spatial and electronic contact between core and shell. The ligand shell controls the particles interactions with its environment (e.g. sensing, assembly, and electron transfer ability). Furthermore, the ability to manipulate and assemble such nanomaterials through the ligand shell is paramount to their incorporation into and the development of new nanoparticle based materials and devices. However, little is known of the exact composition and packing arrangements of molecules within the ligand shell, and even less so on how to control the resulting ...
Due to high surface area, supported metal nanoparticles are thermodynamically prone to sintering. The experimental studies of this process exhibit sometimes transient bimodal particle size distributions. Such observations may result from the support heterogeneity. Looking retrospectively, one can also find the prediction that in the case of Ostwald ripening this feature can be related to charge of metal nano particles. In real systems, this charge is often associated with the metal support interaction and can be interpreted in the framework of the Schottky model. Using this model, the author shows that the charge redistribution cannot be behind bimodal particle size distributions. Moreover, the corresponding contribution to the driving force for Ostwald ripening is typically much smaller than the conventional one.
Most metal nanoparticles (NPs), except noble metal NPs, rapidly form a thin surface oxide in ambient conditions. The protective properties of these oxides improve or worsen depending on the environment, e.g., the human lung. Several properties, including the chemical/electrochemical stability and defect density, determine the capacity of these surface oxides to hinder the bulk metal from further oxidation (corrosion). The aim of this study was to investigate whether electrochemical surface oxide characterization of non-functionalized base metal NPs of different characteristics (Al, Mn and Cu) can assist in understanding their bioaccessibility (metal release) in cell media (DMEM+) and their cytotoxic properties following exposure in lung epithelial (A549) cells. The composition and valence states of surface oxides of metal NPs and their electrochemical activity were investigated using an electrochemical technique based on a graphite paste electrode to perform cyclic voltammetry in buffer ...

Noble metal nanoparticles interact strongly with visible light due to resonant excitation of conduction electron oscillations, an interaction referred to as a local surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) interaction. This LSPR interaction results in an enhancement of the electromagnetic field surrounding the nanoparticle, with a concomitant enhancement of optical signals. Recent interest in SER spectroscopy (SERS) has been rekindled by the observation of single molecule SERS. Nanofabrication provides a method for producing metal substrates for SERS with well-defined size and shape characteristics. Gold nanopillar structures are fabricated for this work by electron beam lithography. Rabbit skeletal-myosin-II HMM and actin can be produced in gram quantities and provide the basis for a highly reproducible in-vitro motility assay system. Using this well established assay linked with SERS we can look at how the heads of myosin interact with filaments of actin to produce steps in greater detail. This ...
Spanish researchers have shown that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) constitute the ideal templates for the formation of one-dimensional strings of metal nanoparticles, with potential uses as waveguides. Professor Luis Liz-Marz n, who heads the Nanoparticles and Nanostructures Group at the University of Vigo in Spain, explained to Nanowerk: Linear arrays would have extremely interesting applications, for instance, in the construction of nanoelectronic circuits, but could also be used in photonics, since wave guiding via surface plasmons has been predicted for metal nanoparticle chains.

Nanomaterials are being increasingly used for the development of electrochemical DNA biosensors, due to the unique electrocatalytic properties found in nanoscale materials. They offer excellent prospects for interfacing biological recognition events with electronic signal transduction and for designing a new generation of bioelectronic devices exhibiting novel functions. In particular, nanomaterials such as noble metal nanoparticles (Au, Pt), carbon nanotubes (CNTs), magnetic nanoparticles, quantum dots and metal oxide nanoparticles have been actively investigated for their applications in DNA biosensors, which have become a new interdisciplinary frontier between biological detection and material science. In this article, we address some of the main advances in this field over the past few years, discussing the issues and challenges with the aim of stimulating a broader interest in developing nanomaterial-based biosensors and improving their applications in disease diagnosis and food safety examination.
Oxide scales are supposed to protect alloys from extensive corrosion, but scientists at U.S. Department of Energys Argonne National Laboratory have discovered metal nanoparticle chinks in this armor.
The ability to study oxidation, reduction, and other chemical transformations of nanoparticles in real time and under realistic conditions is a nontrivial task due to their small dimensions and the often challenging environment in terms of temperature and pressure. For scrutinizing oxidation of metal nanoparticles, visible light optical spectroscopy based on the plasmonic properties of the metal has been established as a suitable method. However, directly relying on the plasmonic resonance of metal nanoparticles as a built-in probe to track oxidation has a number of drawbacks, including the loss of optical contrast in the late oxidation stages. To address these intrinsic limitations, we present a plasmonic heterodimer-based nanospectroscopy approach, which enables continuous self-referencing by using polarized light to eliminate parasitic signals and provides large optical contrast all the way to complete oxidation. Using Au-Cu heterodimers and combining experiments with finite-difference time-domain
The speed of nanoparticle assembly can be accelerated with the assistance of the molecule that carries life s genetic instructions, DNA, a team of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy s Brookhaven National Laboratory recently found.

The effects of silver nanoparticle on the physical properties of syndiotactic polypropylene (sPP) were investigated in terms of rheological responses and crystallization behavior under shear. Silver nanoparticle played as the nucleating agent of sPP by increasing crystallization temperature (Tc) and heat of crystallization (ΔHc). The introduction of silver nanoparticles more than 1 wt% brought about the rise of dynamic viscosity when compared to pure sPP. sPP with 5 wt% silver nanoparticle exhibited the higher tan δ and lower relaxation time than the others in the low frequency range. However, the effects of silver nanoparticle on the rheological properties became less noticeable when the loading level was higher than 5 wt%.

A lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was pretreated to activate glial cells before AgNP treatment for mimicking NP exposure under brain inflammation. From mono-culture, ALT took up the most AgNPs and had the lowest cell viability within three cells. Moreover, AgNPs induced H2O2 and NO from ...
Silver nanoparticles have been shown to inhibit viruses. However, very little is known about the mechanism of antiviral activity. This study tested the hypothesis that 25-nm silver nanoparticles inhibited Vaccinia virus replication by preventing viral entry. Plaque reduction, confocal microscopy, and beta-galactosidase reporter gene assays were used to examine viral attachment and entry in the presence and absence of silver nanoparticles. To explore the mechanism of inhibition, viral entry experiments were conducted with silver nanoparticles and small interfering RNAs designed to silence the gene coding for p21-activated kinase 1, a key mediator of macropinocytosis. The silver nanoparticles caused a 4- to 5-log reduction in viral titer at concentrations that were not toxic to cells. Virus was capable of adsorbing to cells but could not enter cells in the presence of silver nanoparticles. Virus particles that had adsorbed to cells in the presence of silver nanoparticles were found to be infectious upon
The biological approach to synthesize metal nanoparticles is an important aspect of current nanotechnology research. Silver nanoparticles have been well-known for their inhibitory and antimicrobial effects. The ever-increasing antibiotic resistance in pathogenic and opportunistic microorganisms is a major threat to the health care industry. In the present investigation, silver nanoparticles have been successfully biosynthesized by Streptomyces sp JAR1. Biosynthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by means of several analytical techniques including a UV-Visible spectrophotometer, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction pattern analysis, and atomic force microscopy. An evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) was carried out against clinically important pathogenic microorganisms. The metal nanoparticles were also evaluated for their combined effects with antibiotics against the clinical pathogens. The anti-bacterial activities of the antibiotics
The use of less hazardous chemicals or natural material in place of toxic chemical for the formation of metal nanoparticle is known as green synthesis.

Many studies addressing the toxicity of silver nanomaterials have found that smaller sized silver nanoparticles are usually more toxic to organisms and in cell culture than particles of larger sizes yet it is not entirely clear why. We investigated the size dependent toxicity of silver nanoparticles by measuring the response of embryonic zebrafish (Danio rerio) following exposure to a library of thirteen distinct silver nanoparticle size distributions with mean diameters between 8.9 nm and 112.6 nm. Data analysis using dose‐response modeling revealed that silver nanoparticles (AgNP) induced embryo toxicity that is dependent on the total surface area and not on the mass or particle number in solution. Included in this study is a comparison between embryo toxicity induced by silver nitrate (AgNO₃) and AgNPs for cardiovascular endpoints, as well as an investigation into the influence of the chorion on AgNP toxicity. This study demonstrates the importance of using alternative dose metrics in ...

We present a microscopic theory of quantum-size effects in surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) from molecules adsorbed on small metal nanoparticles. In noble-metal nanoparticles, the confining potential has different effect on s-band and d-band electrons. Namely, the spillout of delocalized sp-electrons beyond the classical nanoparticle boundary results in an incomplete embedding of s-electron distribution in the background of localized d-electrons whose density profile follows more closely the classical shape. We demonstrate that a reduction of d-electron screening in the surface layer leads to the enhancement of the surface plasmon local field acting on a molecule located in a close proximity to metal surface. Our numerical calculations of Raman enhancement factor, performed using time-dependent local density approximation, show additional enhancement of the Raman signal which becomes more pronounced for small nanoparticles due to the larger ratio of surface layer to overall nanoparticle size.

1. Introduction. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been proposed as the ideal metal catalyst support for electrocatalytic and sensing applications because of their unique electrical properties, high chemical stability and high surface-to-volume ratios.1 Decoration of the walls of carbon nanotubes (CNTs)2 with functional groups3 and/or nanoparticles has been performed to add additional functionality to CNTs. In recent years, decoration of CNTs has been used to improve performance of their various applications4 such as making nanotubes magnetic,5 to grow secondary structures inside the nanotubes to increase the available surface for catalysis6 or in electronics.7 Modern electronics devices based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have shown that their performance is influenced by a potential barrier existing at the metal-CNT contact that governs the electron injection into the carbon nanotubes.7. To functionalize the CNTs with metal nanoparticles, an ionic adsorption followed by a direct heating can be ...
Synthesized thiolate boronic acid was found to complex with both a polysaccharide (dextran) and a monosaccharide (glucose) with similar affinities but displayed more affinity with dextran than with glucose when capped as a ligand on silver nanoparticle. Coupling on multiple sites of dextran, the silver particles were aggregated. The aggregated particles displayed a decrease of absorbance at 397 nm and an increase at 640 nm. Luminescence intensity displayed an upward deviation increase with the concentration of dextran. The luminescence spectral change was ascribed to surface-enhanced fluorescence by the enhanced field from the aggregated metallic particles.
A gold-nanoparticles (Au NPs)-Rhodamine 6G (Rh6G) based fluorescent sensor for detecting Hg(II) in aqueous solution has been developed. Water-soluble and monodisperse gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) has been prepared facilely and further modified with thioglycolic acid (TGA). Free Rh6G dye was strongly fluorescent in bulk solution. The sensor system composing of Rh6G and Au NPs fluoresce weakly as result of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and collision. The fluorescence of Rh6G and Au NPs based sensor was gradually recovered due to Rh6G units departed from the surface of functionalized Au NPs in the presence of Hg(II). Based on the modulation of fluorescence quenching efficiency of Rh6G-Au NPs by Hg(II) at pH 9.0 of teraborate buffer solution, a simple, rapid, reliable and specific turn-on fluorescent assay for Hg(II) was proposed. Under the optimum conditions, the fluorescence intensity of sensor is proportional to the concentration of Hg(II). The calibration graphs are linear over the range

AIM To develop a screening test for celiac disease based on the coating of gold nanoparticles with a peptide sequence derived from gliadin, the protein that triggers celiac disease. METHODS 20 nm gold nanoparticles were first coated with NeutrAvidin. A long chain Polyethylene glycol (PEG) linker containing Maleimide at the Ω-end and Biotin group at the α-end was used to ensure peptide coating to the gold nanoparticles. The maleimide group with the thiol (-SH) side chain reacted with the cysteine amino acid in the peptide sequence and the biotinylated and PEGylated peptide was added to the NeutrAvidin coated gold nanoparticles. The peptide coated gold nanoparticles were then converted into a serological assay. We used the peptide functionalised gold nanoparticle-based assay on thirty patient serum samples in a blinded assessment and compared our results with the previously run serological and pathological ...
The increased bioavailability of nanoparticles engineered for good dispersion in water may have biological and environmental impacts. To examine this issue, the authors assessed the biological effects in nematodes as they relate to exposure to silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) of different sizes at low (1 mg/L Ag), medium (10 mg/L Ag), and high concentrations (100 mg/L Ag). Over multiple generations, the authors found that the smallest particle, at 2 nm, had a notable impact on nematode fertility. In contrast, the largest particle, at 10 nm, significantly reduced the lifespan of parent nematodes (P0) by 28.8% and over the span of 3 generations (F1-F3). In addition, a computer vision system automatically measured the adverse effects in body length and motility, which were not size-dependent ...
Recently, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are used for drug delivery in treating several neurological disorders e.g., Alzheimers disease (AD), Parkinsons disease, Stroke and trauma. In addition, use of AuNPs for diagnostic purposes in various diseases are also common in clinical medicine. However, the neurotoxic effects of AuNPs in vivo studies are not well explored. Thus, it would be interesting to examine AuNPs neurotoxicity in vivo models in relation to size related effects on brain pathology. We examined the effects of moderate doses of AuNPs of 3 different sizes (5 nm, 10 nm and 40 nm) administered either though intraperitoneally (10 mg/kg, i.p.), intravenously (5 mg/kg, i.v.), intracarotidly (2 mg/kg, i.c.a.) or intracerebroventricularly (20 µg in 20 µl, i.c.v.) in rats (Age 20 to 25 weeks). Blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown to Evans blue albumin (EBA 3 ml/kg, i.v.) and [131]-Iodine (100 µCi/kg, i.v.) was examined 24 h after AuNPs administration in the brain in relation to edema formation and
