RESUMO

The fast and accurate real-time monitoring of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) secreted from living cells plays a critical role in clinical diagnosis and management. Herein, we report low-cost and self-supported MoS2 nanosheet arrays for non-enzymatic eletrochemical H2O2 detection. Under the optimal test conditions, such MoS2 electrodes exhibit extremely promising electrocatalytic performance with a low detection limit of 1.0 µM (S/N = 3) and an excellent sensitivity of 5.3 mA mM-1 cm-2. Furthermore, the detection of the trace amount of H2O2 secreted from live A549 cancer cells was successfully performed with this biosensor.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The construction of a multifunctional drug delivery system with a variety of advantageous features, including targeted delivery, controlled release and combined therapy, is highly attractive but remains a challenge. RESULTS: In this study, we developed a MoS2-based hyaluronic acid (HA)-functionalized nanoplatform capable of achieving targeted delivery of camptothecin (CPT) and dual-stimuli-responsive drug release. HA was connected to MoS2 via a disulfide linkage, forming a sheddable HA shell on the surface of MoS2. This unique design not only effectively prevented the encapsulated CPT from randomly leaking during blood circulation but also significantly accelerated the drug release in response to tumor-associated glutathione (GSH). Moreover, the MoS2-based generated heat upon near-infrared (NIR) irradiation could further increase the drug release rate as well as induce photothermal ablation of cancer cells. The results of in vitro and in vivo experiments revealed that MoS2-SS-HA-CPT effectively suppressed cell proliferation and inhibited tumor growth in lung cancer cell-bearing mice under NIR irradiation via synergetic chemo-photothermal therapy. CONCLUSIONS: The as-prepared MoS2-SS-HA-CPT with high targeting ability, dual-stimuli-responsive drug release, and synergistic chemo-photothermal therapy may provide a new strategy for cancer therapy.

RESUMO

A molecular beacons (MBs) loaded on molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) nanosheets as fluorescence probes for sensitive and versatile detection of microRNAs (miRNAs) through hybridization chain reaction (HCR) has been designed. MoS2 was used as a adsorbent to capture the MBs and a selective fluorescence quencher to reduce the background signal. In the absence of miRNAs, HCR could not be triggered due to the stability of MB probes. The probes attached to the MoS2 surface, efficiently quenching fluorescence of the G-quadruplex/Thioflavin T. However, the presence of target miRNAs triggers the HCR process to generate large amount of HCR products. Meanwhile, the HCR products of long nanowires chain with abundant G-quadruplexes could not be adsorbed on the surface of MoS2, and therefore detach from the MoS2. Consequently, Thioflavin T could be embedded in G-quadruplexes and produced strong fluorescence signal. This fluorescence emission signal could achieve detection of miRNA as low as 4.2 pM and a wide linear ranges from 0.1 to 100 nM. In addition, a versatile fluorescence probe has been developed for detection of miRNA-21 by changing the miRNA-recognition domain of MB. Thus, the fluorescent probe would be a potential alternative tool for biomedical research and clinical molecular diagnostics.

RESUMO

Dried persimmon is thought to be a rich source of non-extractable polyphenols (NEPPs). Here, we analyzed the NEPP content of dried persimmon and its bile acid-binding activity in vitro. To determine total NEPP content and epicatechin equivalent (ECE) of intact NEPPs, acid hydrolysis and non-destructive methods with 70% (v/v) acetone-insoluble solids (AIS), respectively, were conducted using Folin-Ciocalteu reagent. The ECE of intact NEPPs exceeded 1000 mg/100 g in the non-destructive method, but total NEPP content was approximately 3900 mg/100 g with the acid hydrolysis method. Thiolysis showed that the non-extractable proanthocyanidins in dried persimmon mainly comprised epigallocatechin-gallate, epigallocatechin, epicatechin, and epicatechin-gallate. AIS from dried persimmon showed stronger bile acid-binding activity than AIS from apple, quince, and fresh astringent persimmon. These results suggest that the high content of NEPPs in dried persimmon may contribute to a strong bile acid-binding activity.

RESUMO

Multiwalled carbon nanotubes molybdenum disulfide 3D nanocomposite (MWCNT-MoS2 NC) was successfully synthesized via eco-friendly hydrothermal method. The microstructural characterization of synthesized nanocomposite was carried out using different spectroscopic and microscopic techniques. Nanocomposite was activated using glutaraldehyde chemistry and used as a platform to immobilize Lens culinaris ß-galactosidase (Lsbgal) which resulted in 93% of immobilization efficiency. Attachment of Lsbgal onto nanocomposite was confirmed by AFM, FE-SEM, FTIR, and CLSM. The nanobiocatalyst showed broadening in operational pH and temperature working range. Remarkable increase in thermal stability was observed as compared to soluble enzyme. Nanobiocatalyst showed outstanding increase in storage stability, retained 92% of residual activity over a period of 8 months. This offers good reusability as it retained ∼50% residual activity up to 21 reuses and exhibited higher rate of lactose hydrolysis in whey. MWCNT-MoS2 NC conjugated to biomolecules can serve as a potential platform for fabrication of lactose biosensor.

RESUMO

Background: Photothermal and chemotherapy treatment has been frequently studied for cancer therapy; however, chemotherapy is equally toxic to both normal and cancer cells. The clinical application value of most kinds of photothermal transforming agents remains limited, due to their poor degradation and minimal accumulation in tumors. Materials and methods: We reported the synthesis of photothermal transforming agents (MoS2) and chemotherapeutic (doxorubicin, DOX) co-loaded electrospun nanofibers using blend electrospinning for the treatment of postoperative tumor recurrence. Results: Under the irradiation of an 808 nm laser, the as-prepared chitosan/polyvinyl alcohol/MoS2/DOX nanofibers showed an admirable photothermal conversion capability with a photothermal conversion efficiency of 23.2%. These composite nanofibers are in vitro and in vivo biocompatible. In addition, they could control the sustained release of DOX and the generated heat can sensitize the chemotherapeutic efficacy of DOX via enhancing its release rate. Their chemo-/photothermal combined therapy efficiency was systematically studied in vitro and in vivo. Instead of circulating with the body fluid, MoS2 was trapped by the nanofibrous matrix in the tumor and so its tumor-killing ability was not compromised, thus rendering this composite nanofiber a promising alternative for future clinical translation within biomedical application fields. Conclusion: Chitosan/polyvinyl alcohol/MoS2/DOX nanofibers showed an excellent photothermal conversion capability with a photothermal conversion efficiency of 23.2% and can completely inhibit the postoperative tumor reoccurrence.

RESUMO

During tribocorrosion of biomedical alloys, potentials may shift cathodically across the metal-oxide-electrolyte interface resulting in the increased reduction of local oxygen and water molecules. The products of reduction are thought to include reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as hydroxide ions. Using fluorescent probes, developed for labeling intracellular ROS-based hydroxyl radicals (OH·) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), ROS generation due to reduction reactions at cathodically biased CoCrMo alloy surfaces was measured directly. Using terephthalic acid (TA) and pentafluorosulfonylbenzene-fluorescein (PFF) as fluorescent dosimeters, it was found that OH· and H2O2 concentrations increased up to 16 h and 2 h, respectively. Decreases in fluorescence past these time points were attributed to the continuous onset of reduction reactions consuming both the ROS and/or dosimeter. It was also found that voltages below and including -600 mV (vs. Ag/AgCl) produced measurable quantities of H2O2 after two hours of polarization, with concentrations increasing with decreasing potentials up to -1000 mV. The detection and quantification of ROS in a clinical setting could help us better understand the role of ROS in the inflammatory response as well as their impact on corrosion behavior of biomedical alloys.

RESUMO

Amorphous molybdenum sulphide materials are attracting more attention in heterogeneous catalysis, gas adsorption and water remediation fields. Herein, a new type of amorphous molybdenum sulphide composite (poly(diallyldimethylammonium-MoS4), shorten as PDADMA-MoS4) was synthesized via a facile precipitation reaction. Metal adsorption tests of prepared PDADMA-MoS4 composite shows that Hg2+ and Pb2+ concentrations in solution can decrease from 10 ppm to <0.5 ppb level much lower than the drinking water requirement (<2 ppb) in 10 min. The metal adsorption isotherms suggest that maximum metal-uptake capacities are 1460.0 mg/g for Hg (pH = 5) and 433.7 mg/g for Hg (pH = 1), indicating that this sorbent works over a wide pH range (1.0-7.0) to effectively remove Hg from aqueous solution. More importantly, at very low pH = 1, this sorbent material exhibits extraordinarily high selectivity of Hg over Pb and Cu (separation factors ßHg/Cu=4.5×104 and ßHg/Pb=3.6×104). The excellent Hg capacity and selectivity at low pH region (pH < 2) has shed light on the new generation of adsorbent materials for acidic wastewater treatment.

RESUMO

The mechanism behind the variation in the photoluminescence (PL) of a MoS2 nanohybrid material with pH was investigated. Highly fluorescent MoS2 quantum dots dispersed across MoS2 nanosheets (MoS2 QDNS) were synthesized by a hydrothermal route in the presence of NaOH. Upon reducing the pH from 13 to 6.5, the PL intensity was markedly quenched. The removal of dangling sulfur atoms by adding mineral acids could be a plausible mechanism for this PL quenching, together with the inner filter effect and Förster resonance energy transfer due to the resulting species. A label-free turn-on fluorescence sensor for H2O2 was developed using this hybrid material. The PL of the acidified MoS2 QDNS at pH 6.5 increased (i.e., recovered) linearly with the concentration of H2O2. The dynamic range of the sensor was found to be 2-94 µM with a limit of detection (LOD) of 2 µM. This sensing strategy was also extended for the detection of glucose by appending glucose oxidase (GOx) as a catalyst. In the presence of GOx, glucose oxidizes to gluconic acid and H2O2, so the original level of glucose can be estimated by determining the H2O2 present. The absence of a complicated enzyme immobilization step is the prime advantage of the present glucose sensor. The current work exemplifies the utility of MoS2-based nanoparticle systems in the biological sensor domain. Graphical abstract.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has been widely explored for biomedical applications due to its brilliant photothermal conversion ability. In this paper, we report a novel multifunctional MoS2-based drug delivery system (MoS2-SS-HA). By decorating MoS2 nanosheets with hyaluronic acid (HA), these functionalized MoS2 nanosheets have been developed as a tumor-targeting chemotherapeutic nanocarrier for near-infrared (NIR) photothermal-triggered drug delivery, facilitating the combination of chemotherapy and photothermal therapy into one system for cancer therapy. RESULTS: The nanocomposites (MoS2-SS-HA) generated a uniform diameter (ca. 125 nm), exhibited great biocompatibility as well as high stability in physiological solutions, and could be loaded with the insoluble anti-cancer drug erlotinib (Er). The release of Er was greatly accelerated under near infrared laser (NIR) irradiation, showing that the composites can be used as responsive systems, with Er release controllable through NIR irradiation. MTT assays and confocal imaging results showed that the MoS2-based nanoplatform could selectively target and kill CD44-positive lung cancer cells, especially drug resistant cells (A549 and H1975). In vivo tumor ablation studies prove a better synergistic therapeutic effect of the joint treatment, compared with either chemotherapy or photothermal therapy alone. CONCLUSION: The functionalized MoS2 nanoplatform developed in this work could be a potent system for targeted drug delivery and synergistic chemo-photothermal cancer therapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Melanin is detectable in various sense organs including the skin in animals. It has been reported that melanin adsorbs toxic elements such as mercury, cadmium, and lead. In this study, we investigated the adsorption of molybdenum, which is widely recognized as a toxic element, by melanin. METHODS: Molybdenum level of the mouse skin was measured by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. The pigmentation level of murine skin was digitalized as the L* value by using a reflectance spectrophotometer. An in vitro adsorption assay was performed to confirm the interaction between molybdenum and melanin. RESULTS: Our analysis of hairless mice with different levels of skin pigmentation showed that the level of molybdenum increased with an increase in the level of skin pigmentation (L* value). Moreover, our analysis by Spearman's correlation coefficient test showed a strong correlation (r = - 0.9441, p < 0.0001) between L* value and molybdenum level. Our cell-free experiment using the Langmuir isotherm provided evidence for the adsorption of molybdenum by melanin. The maximum adsorption capacity of 1 mg of synthetic melanin for molybdenum was 131 µg in theory. CONCLUSION: Our in vivo and in vitro results showed a new aspect of melanin as an adsorbent of molybdenum.

RESUMO

One of the most challenging issues in photocatalytic hydrogen evolution is to efficiently separate photocharge carriers. Although MoS2 loading could effectively improve the photoactivity of TiO2, a fundamental understanding of the charge transfer process between TiO2 and MoS2 is still lacking. Herein, TiO2 photocatalysts with different exposed facets were used to construct MoS2/TiO2 heterostructures. XPS, ESR, together with PL measurements evidenced the Type II electron transfer from MoS2 to {001}-TiO2. Differently, electron-rich characteristic of {101}-faceted TiO2 were beneficial for the direct Z-scheme recombination of electrons in TiO2 with holes in MoS2. This synergetic effect between facet engineering and oxygen vacancies resulted in more than one order of magnitude enhanced hydrogen evolution rate. This finding revealed the elevating mechanism of constructing high-performance MoS2/TiO2 heterojunction based on facet and defect engineering.

RESUMO

Exploration of efficient catalysts is a priority for the electrochemical nitrogen reduction reaction (NRR) in order to receive a high product yield rate and faradaic efficiency of NH3, under ambient conditions. In the present contribution, the binding free energy of N2, NNH, and NH2 were used as descriptors to screen the potential NRR electrocatalyst among different single or binuclear transition metal atoms on N-doped nanoporous graphene. Results showed that the binuclear Mo catalyst might exhibit the highest catalytic activity. Further free energy profiles confirmed that binuclear Mo catalysts possess the lowest potential determining step (hydrogenation of NH2* to NH3). The improved activities could be ascribed to a down-shift of the density of states for Mo atoms. This investigation could contribute to the design of a highly active NRR electrocatalyst.

RESUMO

Two novel iminophenolate ligands with amidopropyl side chains (HL2 and HL3) on the imine functionality have been synthesized in order to prepare dioxidomolybdenum(VI) complexes of the general structure [MoO2L2] featuring pendant internal hydrogen bond donors. For reasons of comparison, a previously published complex featuring n-butyl side chains (L1) was included in the investigation. Three complexes (1-3) obtained using these ligands (HL1-HL3) were able to activate dioxygen in an in situ approach: The intermediate molybdenum(IV) species [MoO(PMe3)L2] is first generated by treatment with an excess of PMe3. Subsequent reaction with dioxygen leads to oxido peroxido complexes of the structure [MoO(O2)L2]. For the complex employing the ligand with the n-butyl side chain, the isolation of the oxidomolybdenum(IV) phosphino complex [MoO(PMe3)(L1)2] (4) was successful, whereas the respective Mo(IV) species employing the ligands with the amidopropyl side chains were found to be not stable enough to be isolated. The three oxido peroxido complexes of the structure [MoO(O2)L2] (9-11) were systematically compared to assess the influence of internal hydrogen bonds on the geometry as well as the catalytic activity in aerobic oxidation. All complexes were characterized by spectroscopic means. Furthermore, molecular structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses of HL3, 1-3, 9-11 together with three polynuclear products {[MoO(L2)2]2(µ-O)} (7), {[MoO(L2)]4(µ-O)6} (8) and [C9H13N2O]4[Mo8O26]·6OPMe3 (12) which were obtained during the synthesis of reduced complexes of the type [MoO(PMe3)L2] (4-6).

RESUMO

Recent advances in nanotechnology have developed a lot of opportunities for biological applications. In this work, multifunctional MoS2/AuNR nanocomposites with unique high NIR absorption were designed via combining MoS2 nanosheets and gold nanorods (AuNRs). The nanocomposites were synthesized through electrostatic self-assembly and showed high stability and good biocompatibility. Then they were used to modulate the aggregation of amyloid-ß peptides, destabilize mature fibrils under NIR irradiation, and eliminate Aß-induced ROS against neurotoxicity. The inhibition and destabilization effects were confirmed by Thioflavin T (ThT) fluorescence assay and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Cell viability assay and ROS assay revealed that MoS2/AuNR nanocomposites could alleviate Aß-induced oxidative stress and cell toxicity. More importantly, both MoS2 nanosheets and AuNRs can be used as NIR photothermal agents, MoS2/AuNR nanocomposites have enhanced ability of disrupting Aß fibrils and improved cell viability by generating local heat under low power NIR irradiation. Our results provide new insights into the design of new multifunctional systems for the treatment of amyloid-related diseases.

RESUMO

Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), such as MoS2 and WS2, have recently emerged as nanomaterials with potential use in biomedicine. An attractive means to favor their interaction with biological media is the use of proper biomolecules as exfoliating/dispersing agents. Here, MoS2 flakes were stabilized with different small functional biomolecules such as adenosine monophosphate (AMP), guanosine monophosphate (GMP) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) through the strong nucleotide-MoS2 interaction of Lewis acid-base type, rather than just on the weak dispersive and hydrophobic forces commonly associated with the use of many surfactants. The impact of the nucleotide-stabilized MoS2 flakes on the viability and cell proliferation, on the production of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), and on the preosteoblast differentiation process (early stage) has been also evaluated, as well as the incorporation and intracellular localization of the nanomaterials by MC3T3-E1 and Saos-2 cells. The nucleotide-stabilized MoS2 flakes were found to exhibit excellent biocompatibility. Furthermore, their incorporation did not affect the integrity of the cell plasma membrane, which makes them ideal candidates for delivering drug/gene directly into cells. The in vitro cell response of tumor cells to these nanomaterials differs from that of undifferentiated cells, which provides the basis for their potential use in cancer therapy.

RESUMO

Induced circular dichroism (ICD) of polyoxomolybdates and polyoxotungstates was realized in three kinds of natural polysaccharide hydrogels possessing hierarchical chirality. Interestingly, the extrinsic chiral factors were dominant in ionic κ/ι-carrageenan hybrids, while the ICD of clusters was dominantly influenced by the intrinsic alternating bond length (ABL) distortions of polyoxometalates in agarose hybrid. The optical activity of the POMs shows sensitive response to multiple stimuli, such as temperature, K+ salts, UV irradiation and redox agents.

RESUMO

As a new class of two-dimensional (2D) materials, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has huge potential in biomedical area; while its applications in multiplex bioassays are still a challenge. Here, we present novel MoS2-integrated silica colloidal crystal barcode (SCCB) for multiplex microRNA (miRNA) screening. MoS2 was adsorbed on SCCBs by electrostatic interaction, and quantum dots (QDs) decorated hairpin probes were coupled on MoS2 by covalent linkage. As the MoS2 could quench the QDs of the hairpin probes, they together formed a molecular beacon (MB) structure before the detection. When used in assays, target miRNA could form a double strand with the probe and made QDs keep away from MoS2 sheets to recovery their fluorescence. Because the released QDs were positively correlated with the concentration of the hybridized nucleic acid, the target miRNAs could be quantified by measuring the fluorescence signal of the QDs on the SCCBs. In addition, by utilizing different MoS2-integrated structural color encoded SCCBs, multiplexed miRNA quantification could also be realized. Based on this strategy, we have demonstrated that several pancreatic cancer-related miRNAs could be selectivity and sensitivity detected with a detection limit of 4.2 ±â€¯0.3 nM. These features make the MoS2-integrated SCCB ideal for many potential applications.
