Editorial: Interdisciplinary With a Strong Engineering Flavor

Hess, H.
NANOBIOSCIENCE is a word which invites different interpretations, and notably lacks an explicit reference to engineering. Reflecting its uninhibiting title, the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NANOBIOSCIENCE (TNB) has since its inception in 2002 published more than 400 articles with topics ranging from materials engineering over nano nanomedicine to communication theory. This in turn demonstrates the broad interests of the IEEE community, and … Read more

Dielectrophoretic Response of DNA Shows Different Conduction Mechanisms for Poly(dG)-Poly(dC) and Poly(dA)-Poly(dT) in Solution

Mohamad, A.S. ; Jeynes, J.C.G. ; Hughes, M.P.
Although the subject of some scrutiny over the years, the mechanism of conduction in DNA has not yet been resolved, with competing theories suggesting either electronic and ionic conduction mechanisms. In this paper we use dielectrophoresis to determine the electrical properties of poly(dG)-poly(dC) (GC) and poly(dA)-poly(dT) (AT) DNA in solution. The molecules show different conduction mechanisms; GC DNA exhibits conduction primarily through the molecule, whereas in AT DNA conduction through the counterion cloud surrounding the molecule in … Read more

Telomerase Triggered Drug Release Using a SERS Traceable Nanocarrier

Zong, S. ; Wang, Z. ; Chen, H. ; Zhu, D. ; Chen, P. ; Cui, Y.
Telomerase is an important cancer biomarker and therapeutic target. Here, we present a new stimuli-responsive drug release method, using telomerase as the trigger. To realize this kind of delivery, mesoporous silica nanoparticle with an inner metal core is used as the nanocarrier. The metal core serves as the surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate and produces SERS signal for the tracing … Read more

Improving Receiver Performance of Diffusive Molecular Communication With Enzymes

Improving Receiver Performance of Diffusive Molecular Communication With Enzymes

This paper studies the mitigation of intersymbol interference in a diffusive molecular communication system using enzymes that freely diffuse in the propagation environment. The enzymes form reaction intermediates with information molecules and then degrade them so that they cannot interfere with future transmissions.
