  • Patent number: 11028427
    Abstract: Systems, kits, and methods for detecting and quantifying proteomic activity using DNA-encoded probes are provided, where the proteomic activity may be enzymatic activity or ligand binding affinity. Such systems and methods encode quantitative proteomic activity information into DNA sequence populations and utilize DNA-linked substrates or ligands as activity probes. The systems, kits, and methods that are directed to detecting ligand affinity further include crosslinking steps to ensure the integrity of the DNA-linked ligands during purification and washing. Signal detection involves the chemical manipulation of a probe population downstream of sample exposure and application of purifying, selective pressure for desired products. Selection-induced changes in DNA abundance between the initial pool and the purified pool indicate sample activity.

    Abstract: The present disclosure provides to a novel two-target method for measuring the concentration of dust clouds, and an apparatus system that uses the novel two-target method. Cornstarch, corn dust, and saw dust are tested with the apparatus system with the method. This method used the light extinction coefficient of a dust cloud between two targets using a digital camera. This extinction coefficient is linearly related to the concentration of the dust, and the mass extinction coefficient is the key value for this measurement method.

  • Patent number: 11013933
    Abstract: Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) possesses array of strategies to evade antibiotics through mutational inactivation, hiding inside host immune cells or concealing inside the biofilm in a sessile form. We report a drug-free approach to eradicate MRSA through blue-light bleaching of staphyloxanthin (STX), an anti-oxidative carotenoid residing inside the cell membrane of S. aureus. The photobleaching process, uncovered through a transient absorption imaging study and quantitated by mass spectrometry, decomposes STX and sensitizes MRSA to reactive oxygen species attack. Consequently, photobleaching using low-level blue light exhibits high-level synergy when combined with low-concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Antimicrobial effectiveness of this synergistic therapy is validated in MRSA culture, MRSA-infected macrophage cells, biofilm, and a mouse wound infection model. Collectively, these findings highlight broad applications of STX photobleaching for MRSA-infected diseases.
