Successful development of a breast cancer cell Aptasensor with our HER2 aptamer( HeA2_3)

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Abstract Detection of the breast cancer cells is important for early diagnosis of the cancer. We applied thickness shear mode acoustics method (TSM) for detection of SK-BR-3 breast cancer cells using DNA aptamers specific to HER2 positive membrane receptors. The biotinylated aptamers were immobilized at the neutravidin layer chemisorbed at gold surface of TSM transducer. […]

Penner et al. Blood-based diagnostics of Alzheimer’s disease. Review paper.

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Abstract: This review is focused on the methods used for biomarker discovery for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in blood rather than on the nature of the biomarkers themselves. All biomarker discovery programs explicitly rely on contrasts in phenotype as a basis for defining differences. In this review, we explore the basis of contrasting choices as a […]

Development of novel aptamers for low-density lipoprotein particle quantification

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is commonly used for CVD risk assessment; however, recent research has shown LDL particle (LDL-P) number to be a more sensitive indicator of CVD risk than both LDL-C and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). Described herein are five single stranded DNA […]
