Summary of "Programming a split G-quadruplex in a DNA nanocage and its microRNA imaging in live cells."

A novel approach to program target-responsive devices by incorporating the split G4 motifs in a DNA nanocage has been developed. The rigid prism outcompetes the flexible one in reaction kinetics and signal/background ratios, which can be easily internalized by cells and successfully applied in microRNA imaging in live cells.

Dynamic split G-quadruplex programmed reversible nanodevice.

We propose a dynamic nanodevice based on a split G-quadruplex (G4). By splitting it apart, we can successfully decouple the G-tetrad formation from external stimuli, greatly expanding the stimulus for...

Up- and downregulation of mature miR-1587 function by modulating its G-quadruplex structure and using small molecules.

Using bioinformatics analysis, we found some mature human miRNAs containing G-rich sequences with four G-tracts that had a high probability of forming G-quadruplex structures. Here, we chose G-rich mi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A set of models of how communication impacts and is impacted by subjective experience. Techniques are generated from these models by sequencing of various aspects of the models in order to change someone's internal representations. Neurolinguistic programming is concerned with the patterns or programming created by the interactions among the brain, language, and the body, that produce both effective and ineffective behavior.

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

A technique of operations research for solving certain kinds of problems involving many variables where a best value or set of best values is to be found. It is most likely to be feasible when the quantity to be optimized, sometimes called the objective function, can be stated as a mathematical expression in terms of the various activities within the system, and when this expression is simply proportional to the measure of the activities, i.e., is linear, and when all the restrictions are also linear. It is different from computer programming, although problems using linear programming techniques may be programmed on a computer.

High resolution imaging techniques that allow visualization of individual molecules of proteins, lipids, or nucleic acids within cells or tissues.

Complete severing of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. In humans it is usually performed to treat medically intractable, multifocal EPILEPSY. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS of split brain preparations are used in research.
