Dual Signaling DNA Electrochemistry: An Approach To Understand DNA Interfaces
Electrochemical DNA biosensors composed of a redox marker modified nucleic acid probe tethered to a solid electrode is a common experimental construct for detecting DNA and RNA targets, proteins, inorganic ions, and even small molecules. This class of biosensors generally relies on the binding-induced conformational changes in the distance of the redox marker relative to the electrode surface such that the charge transfer is altered. The conventional design is to attach the redox species to the distal end of a surface-bound nucleic acid strand. Here we show the impact of the position of the redox marker, whether on the distal or proximal end of the DNA monolayer, on the DNA interface electrochemistry. Somewhat unexpectedly, greater currents were obtained when the redox molecules were located on the distal end of the surface-bound DNA monolayer, notionally furthest away from the electrode, compared with currents when the redox species were located on the proximal end, close to the electrode. Our results su...

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
