Optimizing Quantum Dot-Conjugated Immunoliposomes for Cancer Diagnostics and Targeted Therapeutics

, , , , , ,
A multifunctional nanoparticle that combines the optical properties of luminescent quantum dots (QDs) and therapeutic modality of immunoliposomes (ILs) has been developed. Carboxylate-derivatized QDs cross-linked with amino- poly(ethylene glycol)-functionalized liposomes were modified with anti-human epidermal [...]

DNA-DNA Interaction on Dendron-Functionalized Sol-Gel Silica Films Followed with Surface Plasmon Fluorescence Spectroscopy

, , , , , , , ,
Since we observed that dendron-assembled surface providing a proper spacing between immobilized DNAs showed high single nucleotide polymorphism discrimination efficiency for DNA microarrays(1), the nanoscale-controlled surface is examined with surface plasmon field-enhanced fluorescence spectroscopy (or [...]
