Fungus-Mediated Synthesis of Gold Nanoparticles and Standardization of Parameters for its Biosynthesis

We report the extracellular biosynthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) using a fungus Fusarium acuminatum. Mycosynthesis of Au-NPs was carried out by challenging the fungal cells filtrate with ${rm HAuCl} _{4}$ solution (1 mM), as nanoparticles synthesizing enzyme secrete extracellularly by the fungi. The AuNPs were characterized with the help of UV–Visible spectrophotometer, Fourier Transform Infrared … Read more

Theoretical Modelling and Experimental Validation of Surface Stress in Thrombin Aptasensor

Adsorption of target molecules on the immobilized microcantilever surface produced beam displacement due to the differential surface stress generated between the immobilized and non-immobilized surface. Surface stress is caused by the intermolecular forces between the molecules. Van der Waals, electrostatic forces, hydrogen bonding, hydrophobic effect and steric hindrance are some of the intermolecular forces involved. … Read more

Intravenously Administered gamma-Ferric Oxide Particle Amount Measured Using Vibrating Sample Magnetometer

Dispersions of platelet gamma-ferric oxide particles 30–50nm in size were intravenously administered to mice and the amount of particles accumulated in each tissue was obtained by magnetization measurement using a vibrating sample magnetometer. Background noise was greatly reduced by measuring dried tissues under a magnetic field of 500 Oe so that the effect of diamagnetism … Read more

Cytotoxic Effects of PLGA Coated Iron Oxide Nanoparticles

The purpose of this study was to investigate the uptake and cytotoxic effects of magnetic poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA)-coated iron oxide nanoparticles as a carrier of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and X-ray on the level of proliferation capacity of DU145 prostate carcinoma cell line in monolayer culture. Spectroscopy results showed that iron content and therefore the cellular … Read more
