Developing low-cost and highly efficient nanobiochips are important for liquid biopsies, real-time monitoring, and precision medicine. By in situ growth of silica nanowires on a commercial frosted slide, we develop a biochip for effective circulating tumor cells (CTCs) detection after modifying epithelial cell adhesion molecule antibody (anti-EpCAM). The biochip shows the specificity and high capture efficiency of 85.4 ± 8.3% for prostate cancer cell line (PC-3). The microsized frosted slides and silica nanowires allow enhanced efficiency in capture EpCAM positive cells by synergistic topographic interactions. And the capture efficiency of biochip increased with the increase of silica nanowires length on frosted slide. The biochip shows that micro/nanocomposite structures improve the capture efficiency of PC-3 more than 70% toward plain slide. Furthermore, the nanobiochip has been successfully applied to identify CTCs from whole blood specimens of prostate cancer patients. Thus, this frosted slide-based biochip may provide a cheap and effective way of clinical monitoring of CTCs.

To overcome the low efficiency of single-responsive smart surfaces, we have constructed a dual-responsive smart surface - poly(spiropyran-co-N-isopropylacrylamide) (poly(SP-co-NiPAAm))-grafted silicon nanowire arrays - by combining photo-responsive SP and thermo-responsive NiPAAm units for enhancing the efficiencies of cancer-cell capture and release. These enhanced efficiencies probably originate from the binary cooperative effect of two responsive building units: NiPAAm units can decrease the steric hindrance between SP units during the isomerization while SP units can facilitate phase transition of NiPAAm units. This study provides a new strategy for designing smart materials and surfaces with efficient responsiveness for biomedical applications.

Highly efficient cell capture and release with low background are urgently required for early diagnosis of diseases such as cancer. Herein, we report an electrochemical responsive superhydrophilic surface exhibiting specific cell capture and release with high yields and extremely low nonspecific adhesion. Through electrochemical deposition, 3-substituted thiophene derivatives are deposited onto indium tin oxide (ITO) nanowire arrays with 4-n-nonylbenzeneboronic acid (BA) as dopant, fabricating the electrochemical responsive superhydrophilic surfaces. The molecular recognition between sialic acids over-expressed on the cell membrane and doped BAs endows the electrochemical responsive surfaces with the ability to capture and release targeted cancer cells. By adjusting the substituent group of thiophene derivatives, the surface wettability can be readily regulated and further utilized for reducing nonspecific cell adhesion. Significantly, the released cells still maintain a high proliferation ability, which indicates that the applied potential does not significantly harm the cells. Therefore, these results may provide a new strategy to achieve advanced functions of biomedical materials, such as low nonspecific adhesion.

A novel label-free fluorescence assay for detection of Hg2+ was developed based on the Hg2+-binding single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) and SYBR Green I (SG I). Differences from other assays, the designed rich-thymine (T) ssDNA probe without fluorescent labelling can be rapidly formed a T-Hg2+-T complex and folded into a stable hairpin structure in the presence of Hg2+ in environmental drinking water samples by facilitating fluorescence increase through intercalating with SG I in one-step. In the assay, the fluorescence signal can be directly obtained without additional incubation within 1 min. The dynamic quantitative working ranges was 5-1000 nM, the determination coefficients were satisfied by optimization of the reaction conditions. The lowest detection limit of Hg2+ was 3 nM which is well below the standard of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This method was highly specific for detecting of Hg2+ without being affected by other possible interfering ions from different background compositions of water samples. The recoveries of Hg2+ spiked in these samples were 95.05-103.51%. The proposed method is more viable, low-costing and simple for operation in field detection than the other methods with great potentials, such as emergency disposal, environmental monitoring, surveillance and supporting of ecological risk assessment and management.

Biomarkers involved in alcohol-induced oxidative stress play an important role in alcoholic liver disease prevention and diagnosis. Alcohol-induced oxidative stress in human liver L-02 cells was used to discover the potential biomarkers. Metabolites from L-02 cells induced by alcohol were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. Fourteen metabolites that allowed discrimination between control and model groups were discovered by multivariate statistical data analysis (i.e. principal components analysis, orthogonal partial least-squares discriminate analysis). Based on the retention time, UV spectrum and LC-MS findings of the samples and compared with the authentic standards, eight biomarkers involved in alcohol-induced oxidative stress, namely, malic acid, oxidized glutathione, γ-glutamyl-cysteinyl-glycine, adenosine triphosphate, phenylalanine, adenosine monophosphate, nitrotyrosine and tryptophan, were identified. These biomarkers offered important targets for disease diagnosis and other researches.
