Elevated Cytosolic Cl− Concentrations in Dendritic Knobs of Mouse Vomeronasal Sensory Neurons

In rodents, the vomeronasal system controls social and sexual behavior. However, several mechanistic aspects of sensory signaling in the vomeronasal organ remain unclear. Here, we investigate the biophysical basis of a recently proposed vomeronasal signal transduction component—a Ca2+-activ ... more

Perceived Odor–Taste Congruence Influences Intensity and Pleasantness Differently

The role of congruence in cross-modal interactions has received little attention. In most experiments involving cross-modal pairs, congruence is conceived of as a binary process according to which cross-modal pairs are categorized as perceptually and/or semantically matching or mismatching. ... more

Relationship of Phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) Taster Status to Olfactory and Gustatory Function in Patients with Chemosensory Disturbances

Poor sensitivity to the bitter taste of phenylthiocarbamide (PTC) and related substances has been associated with a number of diseases. We determined, in patients with chemosensory dysfunction from multiple etiologies, whether PTC "tasters" (n = 511) exhibit less smell and taste dysfunction ... more

Electrochemical DNA-Biosensors based on long-range electron transfer: Investigating the efficiency of fluidic channel microelectrode compared to ultramicroelectrode in a two-el ...

Here we transposed an ultramicroelectrode (UME) setup into a microfluidic chip configuration for DNA biosensors. Hydrodynamics properties of the fluidic channel microelectrode were screened with [Fe(III)(CN)6]3-/[Fe(II)(CN)6]4- redox couple in cyclic voltammetry to provide a basis for furth ... more

Comparison of the specificity and affinity of surface immobilised Affimer binders using the quartz crystal microbalance

To enable multiplexed protein analysis through the use of microarrays, reliable molecules capable of specifically binding to a protein of interest with high affinity are required. Further, this specificity and affinity must be retained upon immobilization to the microarray surface. This stu ... more

Scanning-SAXS of microfluidic flows: nanostructural mapping of soft matter

The determination of in situ structural information of soft matter under flow is challenging, as it depends on many factors, such as temperature, concentration, confinement, channel geometry, and type of imposed flow. Here, we combine microfluidics and scanning small-angle X-ray scattering ... more

Coated and uncoated cellophane as materials for microplates and open-channel microfluidics devices

This communication describes the use of uncoated cellophane (regenerated cellulose films) for the fabrication of microplates, and the use of coated cellophane for the fabrication of open-channel microfluidic devices. The microplates based on uncoated cellophane are particularly interesting ... more

Dynamics of bacterial streamers induced clogging in microfluidic devices

Using a microfabricated porous media mimic platform, we investigated the clogging dynamics of bacterial biomass that accumulated in the device due to the formation of bacterial streamers. Particularly, we found the existence of a distinct clogging front which advanced via pronounced ‘stick- ... more

Olfactory Performance Can Be Influenced by the Presentation Order, Background Noise, and Positive Concurrent Feedback

Sniffin’ Sticks have become a popular procedure to measure overall olfactory functionality with 3 subtest: phenyl ethyl alcohol threshold test (T), discrimination (D), and identification (I). However, several procedural components specified by the original paper have not been tested nor has ... more
