Fabry−Pérot Cavity Sensors for Multipoint On-Column Micro Gas Chromatography Detection
We developed and characterized a Fabry−Pérot (FP) sensor module based micro gas chromatography (μGC) detector for multipoint on-column detection. The FP sensor was fabricated by depositing a thin layer of metal and a layer of gas-sensitive polymer consecutively on the endface of an optical fiber, which formed the FP cavity. Light partially reflected from the metal layer and the polymer−air interface generated an interference spectrum, which shifted as the polymer layer absorbed the gas analyte. The FP sensor module was then assembled by inserting the FP sensor into a hole drilled in the wall of a fused-silica capillary, which can be easily connected to the conventional gas chromatography (GC) column through a universal quick seal column connector, thus enabling on-column real-time detection. We characterized the FP sensor module based μGC detector. Sensitive detection of various gas analytes was achieved with subnanogram detection limits. The rapid separation capability of the FP sensor module assembled ...

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
