Rapid screening of classic galactosemia patients: a proof-of-concept study using high-throughput FTIR analysis of plasma

Classic galactosemia is an autosomal recessive metabolic disease involving the galactose pathway, caused by the deficiency of galactose-1-phosphate uridyltransferase. Galactose accumulation induces in newborns many symptoms, such as liver disease, cataracts, and sepsis leading to death if u ... more

Simultaneous strain and temperature sensing using a slightly tapered optical fiber with an inner cavity

An ultracompact optical fiber mode interferometer capable of performing simultaneous strain and temperature sensing is demonstrated. The device is fabricated by using femtosecond laser micromachining together with fusion splicing techniques and followed by a tapering process. The transmissi ... more

Simple fluorinated moiety insertion on A[small beta] 16-23 peptide for stain-free TEM imaging

Peptide aggregation and fibre formation is one of the major underlying causes of several neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. During the past decades the characterisation of these fibres has been widely studied in an attempt to further understand the nature of the relate ... more

Application of scanning angle Raman spectroscopy for determining the location of buried polymer interfaces with tens of nanometer precision

Near-infrared scanning angle (SA) Raman spectroscopy was utilized to determine the interface location in bilayer films (a stack of two polymer layers) of polystyrene (PS) and polycarbonate (PC).

Iron alters cell survival in a mitochondria-dependent pathway in ovarian cancer cells

The role of iron in the development of cancer remains unclear. We previously reported that iron reduces cell survival in a Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)-dependent manner in ovarian cells; however, the underlying downstream pathway leading to reduced survival was unclear. Altho ... more
