Highly sensitive identification of cancer cells by combining the new tetrathiafulvalene derivative with a β-cyclodextrin/multi-walled carbon nanotubes modified GCE.
Summary of "Highly sensitive identification of cancer cells by combining the new tetrathiafulvalene derivative with a β-cyclodextrin/multi-walled carbon nanotubes modified GCE."
In this contribution, we have prepared and explored a novel nano-interface based probe for the rapid identification and highly sensitive detection of cancer cells by means of an electrochemical study. The new probe tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) carboxylate salt (TTF-(COONBu(4))(2), ditetrabutylammonium salt for propylenedithio-4',5'-tetrathiafulvalene-4,5-dicarboxylate), which has specific spectral and electrochemical properties, has been synthesized and assembled with carbon nanotubes to form a new type of nanocomposite. A simple method of fabricating the β-CD/MWCNT modified electrodes based on functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) has been explored by using glassy carbon electrodes (GCEs), which could remarkably enhance the sensitivity of the biomolecular detection. Our results demonstrate that the combination of the new probe TTF-(COONBu(4))(2) with β-CD/MWCNT modified electrodes could be readily utilized to sensitively detect cancer cells such as liver cancer cells SMMC-7721 and HepG2, drug sensitive leukemia K562/B.W cells and drug resistant leukemia K562/ADM cells, with a detection limit of ∼10(3) cells mL(-1). This may provide a novel strategy for the potential and promising application of the new TTF molecular probe in the development of multi-signal responsive biosensors for the early diagnosis of cancers.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A form of RHABDOMYOSARCOMA arising primarily in the head and neck, especially the orbit, of children below the age of 10. The cells are smaller than those of other rhabdomyosarcomas and are of two basic cell types: spindle cells and round cells. This cancer is highly sensitive to chemotherapy and has a high cure rate with multi-modality therapy. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p2188)
A highly-sensitive (in the picomolar range, which is 10,000-fold more sensitive than conventional electrophoresis) and efficient technique that allows separation of PROTEINS; NUCLEIC ACIDS; and CARBOHYDRATES. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
National Cancer Institute (u.s.)
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. Through basic and clinical biomedical research and training, it conducts and supports research with the objective of cancer prevention, early stage identification and elimination. This Institute was established in 1937.
Balb 3t3 Cells
Cell lines developed from disaggregated BALB/c mouse embryos. They are extremely sensitive to CONTACT INHIBITION, and highly susceptible to transformation by SV40 VIRUS and murine sarcoma virus (SARCOMA VIRUSES, MURINE).
Neoplasms of the brain and spinal cord derived from glial cells which vary from histologically benign forms to highly anaplastic and malignant tumors. Fibrillary astrocytomas are the most common type and may be classified in order of increasing malignancy (grades I through IV). In the first two decades of life, astrocytomas tend to originate in the cerebellar hemispheres; in adults, they most frequently arise in the cerebrum and frequently undergo malignant transformation.
