Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin produced as a secondary metabolite by several species of Aspergillus and Penicillium and frequently found as a natural contaminant in a wide range of food commodities. Novel and robust biorecognition agents for detecting this molecule are required. Aptamers are artificial nucleic acid ligands able to bind with high affinity and specificity to a given target molecule. In the last few years, three separate research groups have selected aptamers for ochratoxin A. While each of these three families of aptamers have been incorporated into various methods for detecting OTA, it is unclear if each aptamer candidate is better suited for a particular application...

The iodine L3-edge X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure (XANES) of organic and inorganic iodine compounds with formal iodine oxidation states ranging from -1 to +7 shows edge energies spanning from 4560.8 eV to 4572.5 eV. These were used to calibrate the oxidation state of iodine in a unique iron complex of iodosylbenzene (PhIO), [Fe(tpena)OIPh](2+) (tpena(-) = N,N,N'-tris(2-pyridylmethyl)ethylenediamine-N'-acetate), which was found to be +1.6. Thus the iodine oxidation state is reduced by 1.4 compared with that in precursor uncoordinated PhIO...

Physical activity is place-based, and being able to assess the number of people and their characteristics in specific locations is important both for public health surveillance and for practitioners in their design of physical activity spaces and programs. Although physical activity measurement has improved recently, many investigators avoid or are at a loss regarding the assessment of physical activity in explicit locations, especially in open environments where many people come and go in a seemingly indiscriminate fashion...

A reliable and reproducible method to rapidly charge single gold nanocrystals in a solid-state device is reported. Gold nanorods (Au NRs) were integrated into an ion gel capacitor, enabling them to be charged in a transparent and highly capacitive device, ideal for optical transmission. Changes in the electron concentration of a single Au NR were observed with dark field imaging spectroscopy via localised surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) shifts in the scattering spectrum. A time-resolved, laser-illuminated, dark field system was developed to enable direct measurement of single particle charging rates with time resolution below one millisecond...

Heat is a powerful tracer to quantify fluid exchange between surface water and groundwater. Temperature time series can be used to estimate pore water fluid flux, and techniques can be employed to extend these estimates to produce detailed plan-view flux maps. Key advantages of heat tracing include cost-effective sensors and ease of data collection and interpretation, without the need for expensive and time-consuming laboratory analyses or induced tracers. While the collection of temperature data in saturated sediments is relatively straightforward, several factors influence the reliability of flux estimates that are based on time series analysis (diurnal signals) of recorded temperatures...

Quantifying groundwater flow at seepage faces is crucial because seepage faces influence the hydroecology and water budgets of watersheds, lakes, rivers and oceans, and because measuring groundwater fluxes directly in aquifers is extremely difficult. Seepage faces provide a direct and measurable groundwater flux but there is no existing method to quantitatively image groundwater processes at this boundary. Our objective is to determine the possibilities and limitations of thermal imagery in quantifying groundwater discharge from discrete seeps...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The McKenzie Method of mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is supported in the literature as a valid and reliable approach to the management of spine injuries. It can also be applied to the peripheral joints, but has not been explored through research to the same extent. This method sub-classifies an injury based on tissue response to mechanical loading and repeated motion testing, with directional preferences identified in the exam used to guide treatment. The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate the assessment, intervention, and clinical outcomes of a subject classified as having a shoulder derangement syndrome using MDT methodology...

The ability to assess oxygenation within living cells is much sought after to more deeply understand normal and pathological cell biology. Hypoxia Red manufactured by Enzo Life Sciences is advertised as a novel hypoxia detector dependent on nitroreducatase activity. We sought to use Hypoxia Red in primary neuronal cultures to test cell-to-cell metabolic variability in response to hypoxic stress. Neurons treated with 90 min of hypoxia were labeled with Hypoxia Red. We observed that, even under normoxic conditions neurons expressed fluorescence robustly...

Recent advances in controlled/living polymerization techniques and highly efficient coupling chemistries have enabled the facile synthesis of complex polymer architectures with controlled dimensions and functionality. As an example, star polymers consist of many linear polymers fused at a central point with a large number of chain end functionalities. Owing to this exclusive structure, star polymers exhibit some remarkable characteristics and properties unattainable by simple linear polymers. Hence, they constitute a unique class of technologically important nanomaterials that have been utilized or are currently under audition for many applications in life sciences and nanotechnologies...
