Applications of functional nucleic acids in imaging, sensing and drug delivery and investigations of DNAzyme-metal interactions (2011-05-25)Functional nucleic acids (FNA), including nucleic acids catalysts (ribozymes and DNAzymes) and ligands (aptamers), have been discovered in nature or isolated in a laboratory through a process called in vitro selection. ...
(2010-05-14)The discovery that nucleic acids could perform functional roles in addition to being genetic materials carriers opened doors to a new paradigm in nucleic acid chemistry. Catalytic DNA molecules also known as deoxyribozymes ...
I. In vitro selection of aptamers for perchlorate and melamine II. Towards crystallization of DNAzymes III. A highly selective lead sensor based on a classic lead DNAzyme (2013-02-03)Nature has given nucleic acids irreplaceable roles for all living creatures. It plays important roles in genetic information storage and transfer, as well as regulating various aspects of biology. The discovery of in vitro ...
