Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome (BWS) is caused due to the disturbance of imprinted genes at chromosome 11p15. The molecular confirmation of this syndrome is possible in approximately 85% of the cases, whereas in the remaining 15% of the cases, the underlying defect remains unclear. The goal of our research was to identify new epigenetic loci related to BWS. We studied a group of 25 patients clinically diagnosed with BWS but without molecular conformation after DNA diagnostics and performed a whole genome methylation analysis using the HumanMethylation450 Array (Illumina)...

The possibility of investigating the binding properties of the same molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP), most probably heterogeneous, at various concentration levels by different methods such as batch equilibration and sensing, is examined, considering two kinds of sensors, based respectively on electrochemical and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) transduction. As a proof of principle, the considered MIP was obtained by non-covalent molecular imprinting of 2-furaldehyde (2-FAL). It has been found that different concentration ranges of 2-FAL in aqueous matrices can be measured by the two sensing methods...

Mesoporous molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) containing mangnanese-doped ZnS quantum dots (Mn-ZnS QDs) were prepared for specific recognition and detection of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP). The Mn-ZnS QDs display orange room-temperature phosphorescence with excitation/emission peaks at 295/590 nm and a decay time of 2.0 ms. In the presence of 4-NP, the orange phosphorescence is strongly reduced. Phosphorescence drops linearly in the 0.1-100 μM 4-NP concentration range, and the detection limit is 60 nM. The detection limit is far lower than the maximally allowed 4-NP concentrations in surface water and drinking water as specified by the U...

The quest for defining life has lasted since the beginning of modern science. During the last century, we have reached a lot of milestones toward the understanding of life and its molecular basis. Also, as living creatures, we have imprinted awareness about what is life and what is not. It seems like we have everything we need to formulate the definition of life. If so, why has one, that would satisfy everybody, not yet been announced? What is holding us back? Although we seem to know what life is, our understanding of its edges is still blurry...

We report a facile, low-cost and safe analytical method for estimation of total protein content, even in complex matrix like human serum, by exploiting the competition between proteins and polydopamine (PDA) for surface binding. The surface coating has been examined by using a microplate reader taking the advantage of the PDA absorbance in the visible region, obtaining new insights into the modelling of polydopamine deposition and polymer/protein adsorption competition. This is helpful for rational development of imprinted biosensors, and potentially offering a with broad applications ranging from diagnostic tools in medicine to food analysis...

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) exhibit high selectivity resulting from imprinted cavities and superior performance from functional materials, which have attracted much attention in many fields. However, the combination of MIPs film and functional materials is a great challenge. In this study, hemin/graphene hybrid nanosheets (H-GNs) were used to initiate the imprinted polymerization by catalyzing the generation of free radicals. Thus, MIPs using sulfamethoxazole as the template was directly prepared on the surface of H-GNs without any film modification...

Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is responsible for 1.7% of births in the United States annually. Despite a large number of studies promoting the efficacy and safety of these practices, there have been reports of imprinting disorders occurring at higher frequencies in children born through ART. Driven by findings in animal studies, it has been postulated that various ART procedures employed at critical points in embryonic development may predispose the genomic imprinting process to errors. Alterations in DNA methylation patterns at imprinting control centers have been reported by some studies to occur more frequently in children with imprinting disorders conceived by ART compared with spontaneous conception, though these findings are not consistently demonstrated and controversy has surrounded the strength of these associations...

Efavirenz is one of the antiretroviral drugs widely used to treat the human immunodeficiency virus. Antiretroviral drugs have been found to be present in surface water and wastewater. Due to complexity of environmental samples, solid-phase extraction (SPE) is used for isolation and pre-concentration of antiretroviral drugs prior to their chromatographic analysis. However, the commercially available SPE sorbents lack selectivity, which tends to prolong the analysis time. Therefore, in this study a molecularly imprinted polymer was synthesized for the specific recognition of efavirenz and then applied as the SPE sorbent for its extraction from wastewater and surface water samples...
