Despite great progress, it is still of high interest to explore new homogeneous assays for simple, visual, and selective protein detection. Herein, one new colorimetric sensor has been developed for visual detection of protein by using polymeric micelles as a sensing scaffold and the molecular recognition between protein and the ligand on the surface of the polymeric micelles as the driving force to trigger the readout of the detection signal. The polymeric micelles formed via the self‐assembly of the amphiphilic block polymer biotin‐labeled poly(ethylene glycol)‐block‐poly(3‐acryl aminophenylboronic acid) are endowed with colorful feature by incorporation of alizarin red S (ARS) into the hydrophobic core. Based on the response to streptavidin recognition, these micelles are further disintegrated through the competitive binding of α‐cyclodextrin with boronic acid for disassociation of ARS, which achieves orange–yellow to pink–purple transition in 2 h. This work will open the way to develop one new mix‐and‐measure, visual, and homogeneous assay.
The polymeric nanoparticles as a sensing scaffold formed via self‐assembly of amphiphilic block polymer poly(ethylene glycol)‐block‐poly(3‐acryl aminophenylboronic acid) complexing with alizarin red S is successfully developed to visual and homogeneous assay based on recognition‐induced disassembly of nanoparticles and the competitive binding of α‐cyclodextrin with boronic acid. This colorimetric platform will open one convenient and time‐saving new way for protein detection.
Abstract The single radial immunodiffusion assay has been the accepted method for determining the potency of inactivated influenza vaccines since 1978. The world‐wide adoption of this assay for vaccine standardisation was facilitated through collaborative studies that demonstrated a high ... more
Abstract Background Whether morbidity from the 1918‐19 influenza pandemic discriminated by socioeconomic status has remained a subject of debate for 100 years. In lack of data to study this issue recent literature have hypothesized that morbidity was “socially neutral”. Objectives ... more
Smart skin that can respond to external stimuli could have important applications in medicine and robotics. Using only items found in a typical household, researchers have created multi-sensor artificial skin that's capable of sensing pressure, temperature, humidity, proximity, pH, and air ... more
Some doctors may recommend that patients with the flu take acetaminophen, or paracetemol, to relieve their symptoms; however, a new randomized clinical trial found no benefits to the over-the-counter medication in terms of fighting the influenza virus or reducing patients' temperature or ot ... more
A new study that investigated the potential of certain psychological traits for predisposing heterosexuals to have negative attitudes towards homosexual people found that psychoticism - which is present in severe psychopathological conditions but may also contribute to less severe states of ... more
