Abstract

Benzophenone is one of the most commonly used photoinitiators of UV-cured inks on food packaging materials and can migrate into foodstuffs. In this study, an amperometric benzophenone sensor based on molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) was successfully constructed for the first time. The sensor was prepared by electropolymerizing o-phenylenediamine (o-PD) on a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) in the presence of template benzophenone, and then removing the template by immersing the poly-o-phenylenediamine film-modified GCE in ethanol. The molecularly imprinted sensor was tested in the presence or absence of benzophenone by cyclic voltammetry and linear sweep voltammetry to verify the changes in the redox peak currents of potassium ferricyanide. The sensor responded sensitively to benzophenone over a linear range of 0.05-5 μM with a detection limit of 10 nM. The imprinted sensor showed high recognition ability for benzophenone and was successfully applied to the determination of benzophenone in food packaging material samples.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
