This work proposed an electrochemiluminescence (ECL) immunosensor for quantitative monitoring of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in plasma with soybean peroxidase (SBP) labeled-antibody as signal amplifier. The ECL sandwich immunosensor was constructed by covalent binding anti-cTnI capture antibody (Ab1) to polyethylenimine-functionalized graphene matrix, which was obtained by a simple hydrothermal reaction between polyethylenimine (PEI) and graphene oxide (GO). After that, the SBP-labeled detection antibody (SBP-Ab2), synthesized by NaIO4 method, was immobilized on the surface of electrode through sandwich immunoreaction...

Peroxidases are widely used as catalysts in chemiluminescence (CL) reaction because of their excellent catalytic activity and various selectable species, such as horseradish peroxidase (HRP), sweet potato peroxidase (SPP) and soybean peroxidase (SbP). They have been employed in many different CL systems for the determination of hydrogen peroxidase (H2O2), nucleic acid, protein and so on. In this paper, the application of peroxidases in the most commonly used luminol-H2O2 CL system was reviewed from two aspects of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and some anionic peroxidases...

Background: Indirect evidence suggests that angiotensin 1-7 (Ang1-7) may counterbalance prohypertensive actions of angiotensin II (AngII), via activation of vascular and/or renal tubular receptors to cause vasodilation and natriuresis/diuresis. We examined if Ang1-7 would attenuate the development of hypertension, renal vasoconstriction and decreased natriuresis in AngII-infused rats and evaluated the mechanisms involved. Methods: AngII, alone or with Ang1-7, was infused to conscious Sprague-Dawley rats for 13 days and systolic blood pressure (SBP) and renal excretion were repeatedly determined...

Shuai Luo, Pranav Sai Shankar Sampara, Zhen He
In this work, an innovative design of integrated photobioelectrochemcial system (IPB) and an algal harvesting method based on polyester-mesh membrane (MM) were investigated. The algal growth/harvesting period of 6 days led to the highest surface biomass productivity (SBP) of 0.88 g m-2 day-1 and the highest energy generation of 0.157 ± 0.001 kJ day-1. The harvesting frequency of 3 times in an operational cycle (with three pieces of MM) enhanced the SBP to 1.14 g m-2 day-1. The catholyte recirculation for catholyte mixing resulted in a positive net energy production (NEP) of 0...

SB269652 is a negative allosteric modulator of the dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) yet possesses structural similarity to ligands with a competitive mode of interaction. In this study, we aimed to understand the ligand-receptor interactions that confer its allosteric action. We combined site-directed mutagenesis with molecular dynamics simulations using both SB269652 and derivatives from our previous structure activity studies. We identify residues within the conserved orthosteric binding site (OBS) and a secondary binding pocket (SBP) that determine affinity and cooperativity...
