  • Simplified capture, extraction, and amplification of cellular DNA from water samples

    Kawaguchi M., Aoki H., Kamo H., Miura K., Hiruta Y., Simizu S., Citterio D.

     View Summary

    DNA analysis in water samples is attracting attention in various fields. However, conventional methods for DNA analysis require a work-intensive and time-consuming sample pre-treatment. In this study, a simplified pre-treatment method for analyzing DNA in water samples was evaluated. The process consists of filtration, DNA extraction, and amplification, which can be achieved within a short time. In the filtration process, two types of filters, firstly a tissue paper (Kimwipe) and then a glass filter (GF/F), were used in sequence. The first large pore size filter enabled a reduction in filtration time by removing large particulate matter impurities present in river water matrix. Cells spiked into 1 L of river water were recovered at more than 90% within approximately 5 min filtration time. Also, DNA was extracted from the captured cells directly on the surface of the filter in only 5 min. Thus, DNA collection and extraction from a water sample can be completed within about 10 min. Furthermore, PCR amplification was performed directly from DNA-attached filter sections, which greatly reduced the number of required pre-treatment steps. Finally, we succeeded in establishing a simple and fast on-site pre-treatment system by using a hand-driven syringe filtration method. This pre-treatment system is expected to offer the possibility for the future establishment of a rapid and easy DNA analysis method applicable to various types of water samples.

  • Peroxidase-like Activity of Aptamer-Gold Nanoparticles for Selective and Sensitive Fluorescence Detection of Low-Density Lipoproteins

    Prakobkij A., Saenmuangchin R., Chunta S., Amatatongchai M., Citterio D., Jarujamrus P.

     View Summary

    Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), commonly called “bad cholesterol”, is crucial to cardiovascular health. Increased LDL-C levels pose a substantial risk to human health. As a result, there is a demand for reliable, affordable, and highly sensitive analytical methods for LDL-C detection. Herein, a facile fluorometric aptasensor for LDL-C detection based on the aptamer-enhanced peroxidase-mimicking activity of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) has been developed. AuNPs were functionalized with LDL-C-specific thiolated aptamer to enhance their intrinsic peroxidase-like activity, which could effectively catalyze the oxidation of o-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride (OPD) by H2O2 into the yellow-fluorescent product 2,3-diamino phenazine (DAP). The characterization studies confirmed that the presence of the aptamer enhances the affinity of AuNPs toward the OPD substrate, thereby leading to a marked increase in the peroxidase-mimicking activity. Moreover, after being functionalized with an aptamer, increased dispersibility and substrate affinity of AuNPs were achieved. Using LDL-C as a target analyte, under optimum conditions, a linear relationship between smartphone-recorded signal intensity and the logarithm of the analyte concentration was observed in the range of 0.05-1 mg dL-1 and the limit of detection was 0.0230 mg dL-1. The results agree with those obtained by a clinical laboratory method. This proposed method is readily deployable and a promising prototype for diverse diagnostic applications, particularly in biomarker detection within serum or plasma samples. It holds the potential to yield substantial advantages in point-of-care testing.

  • Development of Phosphinate Ligand-Based Low-Affinity Ca<sup>2+</sup> Fluorescent Probes and Application to Intracellular Ca<sup>2+</sup> Imaging

     View Summary

    Divalent metal cations such as calcium ion (Ca2+) and magnesium ion (Mg2+) are indispensable to the regulation of various cellular activities. In this research, we developed the KLCA series utilizing o-aminophenol-N,N-diacetate-O-methylene-methylphosphinate (APDAP) as a target binding site, which was reported recently as a highly free Mg2+-selective ligand. KLCA-301 with orange fluorescence based on a rhodamine fluorophore and KLCA-501 with near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence based on a Si-rhodamine fluorophore were synthesized, intended for application to multicolor imaging. The evaluation of the fluorescence response to Ca2+ and Mg2+ of the KLCA series indicated the applicability as low-affinity Ca2+ probes. While KLCA-301 mainly localized in the cytosol in cultured rat hippocampal neurons, KLCA-501 localized to the cytosol and granular organelles in neurons. Comparison of the fluorescence response of KLCA-301 and the high-affinity Ca2+ probe Fluo-4 upon stimulation by glutamate in stained neurons revealed that KLCA-301 could reflect the secondary large rise of intracellular Ca2+, which Fluo-4 could not detect. In addition, KLCA-501 showed a fluorescence response similar to the low-affinity Ca2+ probe Fluo-5N upon stimulation by glutamate in stained neurons, concluding that KLCA-301 and KLCA-501 could be used as low-affinity Ca2+ probes. The KLCA series offers new options for low-affinity Ca2+ probes. Moreover, KLCA-501 achieved simultaneous visualization of the change in Ca2+ and ATP concentrations and also in mitochondrial inner membrane potential in neurons. KLCA-501 is expected to be a strong tool that enables simultaneous multicolor imaging of multiple targets and elucidation of their relationship in cells.

  • Cation/anion-exchange mode switching chromatography utilizing pH-responsive mixed charge polymer-modified silica beads

     View Summary

    The separation capacity of a column typically remains constant. By applying stimuli-responsive materials to the stationary phase, the separation capacity in a single column can be tuned; however, the separation mode is not completely switched. In this study, we aimed to develop a cation/anion-exchange mode switching chromatography approach, in which the monomer ratio is adjusted, enabling the surface charge to become either negative or positive in response to mobile phase pH. Three types of beads were prepared, each modified with a pH-responsive mixed-charge polymer combining a cationic monomer, a pH-responsive carboxylic acid monomer, a neutral monomer, and a cross-linking monomer. The composition ratio of the cationic monomer to the pH-responsive carboxylic acid monomer was set at 1 : 2 so that the cation-exchange mode occurs at a pH above the pKa and the anion-exchange mode occurs below the pKa. At a pH below the pKa, the retention factor of the negatively charged compound increased. In contrast, at a pH above the pKa, the retention factor of the positively charged compound increased, confirming the charge switching on the bead surface. Switching to the cation- and anion-exchange mode enabled the separation of five basic antidepressants and acidic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, respectively. Utilizing a pH-responsive mixed-charge polymer, we attributed a cation/anion-exchange mode to a single column.

  • Dual Colorimetric/Electrochemical Detection of Salmonella typhimurium Using a Laser-Induced Graphene Integrated Lateral Flow Immunoassay Strip

    Foodborne illnesses caused by the ingestion of contaminated foods or beverages are a serious concern due to the millions of reported cases per year. It is essential to develop sensitive and rapid detection methods of foodborne pathogens to ensure food safety for producers and consumers. Unfortunately, current detection techniques still suffer from time-consuming operations and the need for highly skilled personnel. Here, we introduce a highly sensitive dual colorimetric/electrochemical detection approach for Salmonella enterica serovar typhimurium (S. typhimurium) based on a laser-induced graphene-integrated lateral flow immunoassay (LIG-LFIA) strip. The LIG electrode was fabricated by laser engraving on a polyimide tape containing a pseudo silver/silver chloride reference electrode from silver sintering and chlorination. Using double-sided tape inserted into the strip, automatic sequential reagent delivery was enabled for the dual-mode signal readout by single-sample loading. A gold-deposited gold nanoparticle strategy was first employed to simultaneously obtain a colorimetric signal for early screening and a signal turn-on electrochemical response for high-sensitivity and -quantitative analysis. A superior performance of the strip was established, characterized by a short analysis time (12 min assay +15 min sample preparation), a broad working concentration range (1 cfu/10 mL to 108 cfu/mL), and the lowest limit of detection (1 ± 0.5 cfu/10 mL; mean ± standard deviation, n = 3) among reported multimode S. typhimurium detection schemes. The strip was successfully applied in the analysis of various food products without any bacterial enrichment or amplification required, and the results were comparable to those of the standard culture method.
