    Abstract: A molecular probe for the luminescent detection of nucleotides (e.g., adenosine nucleotides) is presented. In certain embodiments, the probe can readily distinguish between the three adenosine nucleotides in buffered aqueous conditions at neutral pH, a need for the direct monitoring of enzymatic reactions converting ATP to ADP or AMP. The probe is most efficient under millimolar concentrations of ATP, which are relevant to intracellular conditions. In preferred embodiments, the long luminescence lifetime of the probe readily enables time-gating experiments.

  • Publication number: 20140045323
    Abstract: Preparation of semiconductor nanocrystals and their dispersions in solvents and other media is described. The nanocrystals described herein have small (1-10 nm) particle size with minimal aggregation and can be synthesized with high yield. The capping agents on the as-synthesized nanocrystals as well as nanocrystals which have undergone cap exchange reactions result in the formation of stable suspensions in polar and nonpolar solvents which may then result in the formation of high quality nanocomposite films.

  • Publication number: 20140024814
    Abstract: Provided are a novel europium compound which has a melting point of 180° C. or lower and can be stably supplied by bubbling in a chemical vapor deposition method or an atomic layer deposition method, a precursor for forming a europium-containing thin film based on the compound, and a method for forming a europium-containing thin film using this precursor. A europium-containing thin film is formed using bis(tetramethylmonoalkylcyclopentadienyl)europium as a precursor for forming a europium-containing thin film by a chemical vapor deposition method or anatomic layer deposition method.

  • Publication number: 20140011985
    Abstract: Disclosed are targeted in-vivo cancer therapeutics based on the creating conjugate combinations of a porphyrin or porphyrin-like molecule or compound used as a delivery vehicle or vector, coupled with a cytotoxic agent that is released upon binding to a tumor site. The families of porphyrin or porphyrin-like molecules or compounds have a high affinity to bind with cancer cells and are organic structures and are not toxic or rejected by the body. The structure includes a binding site for metals and nano-particles. Benefits of the current invention include: accurate, targeted in-vivo radio and therapeutic agents delivered directly to tumor sites. A benefit of targeted therapy is sparing healthy cells and tissue, thus keeping the host patient healthier which enhances the therapeutic effects of reducing and destroying the cancer tumors. An additional benefit is keeping the patient from discomfort of sickness and the side effects of traditional radio and chemo-therapies.

  • Patent number: 8623324
    Abstract: Chemically reactive dyes that are intramolecularly crosslinked with a water-soluble bridge, their bioconjugates and their uses are described. Reactive fluorescent dyes that have a water-soluble bridge are superior to those of conjugates of spectrally non-crosslinked dyes or the dyes that are crosslinked with a hydrophobic bridge. The invention includes reactive fluorescent dyes, their biological conjugates and uses.
