    ABSTRACT: Upconversion nanophosphors (UCNPs) are extremely useful for analytical applications, since they display a high signal-to-noise ratio, and the photobleaching can be ignored. Herein, a novel upconversion nanocomposite composed of β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) derivative modified UCNPs and rhodamine B (RB),was prepared for the detection of cholesterol (Cho). The upconversion luminescence (UCL) emission can serve as a Cho-sensing signal by an effective fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) process, using UCNPs as the donor and RB as the quencher. The sensor for Cho detection in human serum shows excellent sensitivity and selectivity, which has the potential for clinical applications in the analysis of other biological and environmental samples.

    ABSTRACT: A surprising electrochemiluminescence (ECL) enhancement effect in graded-gap CdSeTe@ZnS-SiO2 quantum dot (QD) bilayers was observed and used to create an ultrasensitive immunoassay. CdSeTe@ZnS-SiO2 QDs of two different sizes were used as a donor-acceptor pair, owing to their tunable energy and low biotoxicity. The graded-gap CdSeTe@ZnS-SiO2 QD bilayers were fabricated by layer-by-layer assembly of differently sized CdSeTe@ZnS-SiO2 QDs on a glutaraldehyde-activated electrode. Benefiting from a short interlayer distance and perfect spectral overlap in the graded-gap QD bilayers, highly efficient ECL resonance energy transfer (ECLRET)-based energy funneling was observed, wherein excitons from trapped states could be effectively recycled. Consequently, the observed ECL enhancement for the bilayers was more than four times greater than that observed for reference samples. The graded-gap QD bilayers were utilized in an ECL biosensor for the detection of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA). The proposed method featured a detection limit of 0.4 pg mL(-1) CEA with a linear calibration range from 1 pg mL(-1) to 200 ng mL(-1). This method represents a novel approach for versatile detection of biomolecules in research and clinical applications.

    ABSTRACT: We report on a sensitive electrochemical immunoassay for the prostate specific antigen (PSA). An immunoelectrode was fabricated by coating a glassy carbon electrode with multiwalled carbon nanotubes, poly(dimethyldiallylammonium chloride), CeO2 and PSA antibody (in this order) using the layer-by-layer method. The immunosensor is then placed in a sample solution containing PSA and o-phenylenediamine (OPD). It is found that the CeO2 nanoparticles facilitate the electrochemical oxidation of OPD, and this produces a signal for electrochemical detection of PSA that depends on the concentration of PSA. There is a linear relationship between the decrease in current and the concentration of PSA in the 0.01 to 1,000 pg mL−1 concentration range, and the detection limit is 4 fg mL−1. The assay was successfully applied to the detection of PSA in serum samples. This new differential pulse voltammetric immunoassay is sensitive and acceptably precise, and the fabrication of the electrode is well reproducible. Figure A novel electrochemical immunoassay for prostate specific antigen (PSA) was developed. Ceria (CeO2) mesoporous nanospheres facilitated the electrochemical oxidation of o-phenylenediamine (OPD). The developed immunoassay has high sensitivity and can be successfully applied for the detection of PSA in serum samples

    ABSTRACT: A novel fluorescent immunosensor was developed based on the use of CuS nanoparticles (CuS NPs) as labels for the highly sensitive detection of human prostate cancer biomarker prostate specific antigen (PSA). In the presence of CuS NPs, the non-fluorescent substrate o-phenylenediamine could be oxidized into the stable fluorescent product 2,3-diamiophenazine at physiological pH. Throughout the reaction, no other oxidizing agents (e.g. hydrogen peroxide) were needed. The relatively mild oxidation conditions made the immunoassay robust, reliable and facile. The proposed immunoassay exhibited high sensitivity and specificity for the detection of PSA. A linear relationship between the fluorescent signals and the concentration of PSA was obtained in the range of 0.5 pg mL(-1) to 50 ng mL(-1), with a detection limit of 0.1 pg mL(-1) (S/N = 3). The proposed fluorescent immunoassay can be used as a promising platform for the detection of a variety of other biomarkers.

    ABSTRACT: Graphene quantum dots (GQDs) with green fluorescence were incorporated onto hexagonal boron nitride sheets (HBN) through electrostatic interaction by using poly(diallyldimethylammonium) (PDDA) as the bridge to fabricate the novel nanocomposites (HBN-GQDs). The HBN-GQDs nanocomposites exhibited strong green fluorescent property, high stability, water solubility, very low cytotoxicity on Hela cells. These properties make the HBN-GQDs nanocomposites as good candidate materials for biological applications. The results for the imaging of live cells indicated that the cell-penetrating HBN-GQDs could be a promising nanoprobe for intracellular imaging and therapeutic applications.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, hemoglobin/DNA/layered double hydroxide composites were fabricated by co-intercalating hemoglobin (Hb) and DNA in the interlayer galleries of Ni–Al layered double hydroxides (Ni–Al LDH) via a delamination-reassembly procedure. The presence of DNA not only remarkably facilitated the intercalation of Hb into the interlayers of the Ni–Al LDH, but also improved the bioactivity of the entrapped Hb. By depositing the Hb/DNA/LDH composite film onto a glassy carbon electrode, a mediator-free biosensor was obtained. Because of the synergistic effect between the LDH host and the co-intercalated DNA guest, the Hb/DNA/LDH composites modified electrode exhibited a fast direct electron transfer with a rate constant, ks, of 6.95 ± 3.31 s−1 and a sensitive electrocatalytic response to H2O2 and NO2− in the linear range of 4.85 × 10−7 to 1.94 × 10−4 M and 2.5 × 10−7 to 3.0 × 10−5 M, respectively. Furthermore, with the protective effect provided by the LDH nanosheets, the electrocatalytic response of the intercalated Hb to H2O2 was retained, even at high temperatures (85 °C) or in the presence of an organic solvent (CH3CN).

    ABSTRACT: Haemin-functionalised magnetic iron(II, III) oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (Fe3O4/haemin) were synthesised by changing the acidity of a solution of the two compounds. The nanoparticles were characterised by transmission electron microscopy, UV-vis absorption spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, measurement of magnetisation, and electrochemical techniques. The properties of both haemin and Fe3O4 were retained. Thus, Fe3O4/haemin nanoparticles exhibited pronounced electrocatalytic activity towards trichloroacetic acid (TCA) like haemin itself. Interestingly, electrocatalytic activity towards TCA was affected by detection temperature, which was controlled via electrically heated carbon paste electrodes. The maximal catalytic current was 5.8 times higher at 60°C than at room temperature (25°C). This proposed electrochemical sensor for TCA possessed a linear detection range of 5-80μM and a detection limit of 0.3μM at 60°C.

    ABSTRACT: A novel multianalyte electrochemical immunoassay was developed for ultrasensitive detection of human cardiopathy biomarkers cardiac troponin I (cTnI) and human heart-type fatty-acid-binding protein (FABP) using metal ion functionalized titanium phosphate nanospheres (TiP-metal ion) as labels. The metal ions could be detected directly through square wave voltammetry (SWV) without metal preconcentration, and the distinct voltammetric peaks had a close relationship with each sandwich-type immunoreaction. The position and size of the peaks reflected the identity and level of the corresponding antigen. The large amount of metal ions loading on the TiP nanospheres greatly amplified the detection signals, and the good biocompatibility of graphene nanoribbons (GONRs) retained good stability for the sandwich-type immunoassay. The proposed immunoassay exhibited high sensitivity and selectivity for the detection of cTnI and FABP. The linear relationships between electrochemical signals and the concentrations of cTnI and FABP were obtained in the range of 0.05 pg/mL-50 ng/mL and 0.05 pg/mL-50 ng/mL, respectively. The detection limits of cTnI and HIgG were 1 and 3 fg/mL (S/N = 3), respectively. Moreover, the immunoassay accurately detected the concentrations of cTnI and FABP in human serum samples, which were demonstrated to have excellent correlations with the standard enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method. The results suggested that the electrochemical immunoassay would be promising in the point-of-care diagnostics application of clinical screening of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) biomarkers.

    ABSTRACT: A novel glutathione (GSH) photoelectrochemical biosensor was fabricated using the newly synthesized graphene-CdS (GR-CdS) nanocomposites. The GR-CdS nanocomposites were prepared by a fast, one-step, aqueous reaction. The as-prepared GR-CdS structure inherited the excellent electron transport of GR and facilitated the spatial separation of photo-generated charge carrier, therefore resulting in the enhanced photocurrent, and making it a promising candidate for developing photoelectrochemical biosensors. The proposed GSH sensor displays satisfactory analytical performance with an acceptable linear range from 0.01 to 1.5 mmol L(-1) with a detection limit of 0.003 mmol L(-1) at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3, and also shows an excellent specificity against anticancer drugs and can be successfully applied for GSH detection in real samples. The as-synthesized GR-CdS nanocomposites exhibited obviously enhanced photovoltaic properties, which could be extended to the detection of other enzymes and biomolecules, thus providing a promising platform for the development of photoelectrochemical biosensors.

    ABSTRACT: As an emerging category of fluorescent metal nanoclusters, oligonucleotide-templated silver nanoclusters (Ag NCs) have attracted a lot of interest and have shown wide application in biorelated disciplines. However, the weak fluorescence emission and poor permeability to cell membranes tethered further intracellular applications of Ag NCs. AS1411 is an antiproliferative G-rich phosphodiester oligonucleotide and currently an anticancer agent under phase II clinical trials. Herein, we present a strategy to synthesize AS1411-functionalized Ag NCs with excellent fluorescence through a facile one-pot process. Confocal laser scanning microscopy and Z-axis scanning confirmed that the AS1411-functionalized Ag NCs could be internalized into MCF-7 human breast cancer cells and were able to specifically stain nuclei with red color. To our surprise, 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-z-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay demonstrated the Ag NCs were cytocompatible and showed better inhibition effects than pure AS1411 on MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. In addition, a universal design of the oligonucleotide scaffold for synthesis of Ag NCs was extended to other aptamers, such as Sgc8c and mucin 1 aptamer. Due to the facile synthesis procedure and capability of specific target recognition, this fluorescent platform will potentially broaden the applications of Ag NCs in biosensing and biological imaging.

    ABSTRACT: Fluorescent gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) were incorporated into porous calcium carbonate spheres through electrostatic interaction. The resulting CaCO(3)/AuNCs hybrid material exhibited interesting properties, such as porous structure, excellent biocompatibility, good water solubility, and degradability. These properties make the CaCO(3)/AuNCs hybrid material a promising template to assemble horseradish peroxidase/antibody conjugates (HRP-Ab(2)). By using CaCO(3)/AuNCs/HRP-Ab(2) bioconjugates as probes, a versatile immunosensor was developed for fluorescent and electrochemical detection of the cancer biomarker neuron-specific enolase (NSE). The detection limits of the sensor were 2.0 and 0.1 pg mL(-1) for fluorescent and electrochemical detection, respectively. The immunosensor shows high sensitivity and offers an alternative strategy for the detection of other proteins and DNA.

    ABSTRACT: Graphene-CdS (GR-CdS) nanocomposites were prepared in a one-step synthesis in aqueous solution. The synthetic approach was simple and fast, and it may be extended for the synthesis of other GR-metal-sulfide nanocomposites. The as-prepared GR-CdS nanocomposite films inherited the excellent electron-transport properties of GR. In addition, the heteronanostructure of the GR-CdS nanocomposites facilitated the spatial separation of the charge carriers, thus resulting in enhanced photocurrent intensity, which makes it a promising candidate for photoelectrochemical applications. This strategy was used for the fabrication of an advanced photoelectrochemical cytosensor, based on these GR-CdS nanocomposites, by using a layer-by-layer assembly process. This photoelectrochemical cytosensor showed a good photoelectronic effect and cell-capture ability, and had a wide linear range and low detection limit for Hela cells. The as-synthesized GR-CdS nanocomposites exhibited obviously enhanced photovoltaic properties, which could be an efficient platform for many other high-performance photovoltaic devices.

    ABSTRACT: Gold nanoparticle-assembled capsules (GNACs) with controllable size and tunable morphology were fabricated through a simple two-step mixing procedure. Cationic polyelectrolyte was first induced to self-assemble into spherical aggregates in the presence of multivalent anions. Then, the aggregates served as an effective template for the self-assembly of gold nanoparticles to form size-controllable capsules. By adjusting the quantity of gold nanoparticles, capsules with various morphologies could be obtained. Because of their unique nanoporous features, the capsules with intact shells were further used to load hemoglobin (Hb) for the fabrication of a novel H(2)O(2) biosensor. The results of UV-vis spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry indicated that the capsules provided a suitable matrix for the immobilization of Hb. Additionally, the resulting biosensor showed a high affinity and good catalytic activity to H(2)O(2). With the advantages of the large surface area, good conductivity and biocompatibility, the GNACs can offer a promising platform for the development of biosensors. Moreover, on the basis of the capsule structure, this material may also be expected to apply in some fields such as drug delivery, medical diagnostics and bio-encapsulation.

    ABSTRACT: A silver nanoparticle-hollow titanium phosphate sphere (AgNP-TiP) hybrid is successfully synthesized and used as a label for electrochemical detection of human interleukin-6 (IL-6). Hollow TiP spheres with a diameter of 430 nm and an average thickness of 40 nm are synthesized by a template approach. The AgNPs are incorporated in situ into the TiP shell via an exchange process. The as-prepared AgNP-TiP hybrid shows outstanding biocompatibility, good dispersity and solubility in water, and high silver loading properties (289.2 mg of silver in 1.0 g of TiP). These advantages make the AgNP-TiP hybrid an effective candidate as an amplification label in immunoassay systems. Herein, the as-prepared AgNP-TiP hybrid is attached to a signal antibody (Ab(2) ) to produce Ab(2) -AgNP-TiP labels in the fabrication of an electrochemical immunosensor. The nanoparticle-based amplification labels, upon coupling with a magnetic sensing array, give rise to an extremely sensitive response to IL-6 in a linear range of 0.0005-10 ng mL(-1) with a detection limit of 0.1 pg mL(-1) . The proposed sensor exhibits high specificity, good reproducibility, and long-term stability, and may be a promising technique for protein and DNA detection.

    ABSTRACT: Multifunctional manganese carbonate microspheres with superparamagnetic and fluorescent properties were fabricated and used as biological labels. The Fe(3)O(4)@MnCO(3) microspheres were synthesized by direct co-precipitation without any linker shell. The Fe(3)O(4)@MnCO(3) microspheres have uniform size distribution and rough surface, which provides a promising template for the assembly of polyelectrolytes (PEs) and CdTe quantum dots (QDs). A luminescent CdTe shell was observed in Fe(3)O(4)@MnCO(3)@PE-CdTe spheres by confocal fluorescence imaging. With excellent solubility in water and rough surfaces, the multifunctional microsphere offers a friendly microenvironment for immobilization of α-fetoprotein (AFP) antibodies (Ab(2)) to fabricate Fe(3)O(4)@MnCO(3)@PE-CdTe-Ab(2) architecture. By using the Fe(3)O(4) @MnCO(3)@PEs-CdTe-Ab(2) bioconjugate as a label, a promising and versatile platform for fluorescence imaging and electrochemical immunosensing of cancer biomarker AFP was developed. The prepared electrochemical immunosensor shows high sensitivity and selectivity with a detection limit of 0.3 pg mL(-1).
