Amino-Coated Metallofullerene Nanoparticles for Glioblastoma Mutiforme Tumor Detection
Tinghui Li , Susan. Murphy, Kanwarpal Bakshi, Steven LaConte, Zhi Sheng, and Harry Dorn

We report the preparation of a new functionalized trimetallic nitride endohedral metallofullerene, with a cage surface consisting of positively charged amino groups, which is expected to bind more efficiently to negatively charged cell phospholipid bi-layer cellular surfaces and will more readily undergo endocytosis. We now report that this Gd-nanoplatform when subsequently conjugated with an IL-13 peptide, (IL-13-Gd3N@C80(OH)x(NH2)y) exhibits enhanced targeting of U-251 GBM cell lines.

Design and Evaluation of High Definition Probe for HPV genotyping Microarray
Sihn Ae Lee, Ah Reum Park, Inyoung Kim, Ji Hyung Lee, and Jongwon Kim

To improve the sensitivity and specificity of the HPV DNA Microarray, we adopted triple oligonucleotide probes for each targets and selected these probes not to have higher similarity of 75% with each others. These triple probes have shown 10 ~ 100 times higher sensitivities with comparable specificities than the conventional HPV DNA microarray of single oligonuclotide probe.

Digital PCR to Determine the Number of Transcripts from Single Neurons after Patch-clamp Recording
Nóra Faragó1,2, Ágnes K. Kocsis3, Sándor Lovas3, Gábor Molnár3, Márton Rózsa3, Viktor Szemenyei3, Ágnes Zvara2, Gábor Tamás3, László G Puskás1,2

Whole-cell patch-clamp recording enables detecting electrophysiological signals from neurons, and RNA can be harvested into the patch pipette from the cells.We have optimized a dPCR protocol for determining exact transcript numbers in single neurons after patch-clamp recording by using dPCR based on high-density nanocapillary PCR.

A Novel Approach Toward Microfluidic Drug Metabolite Synthesis – Electrosynthetic Methodology Simulating Cytochrome (CYP450) Oxidation
Romain Stalder, Gregory P. Roth and Philip Podmore

A novel microfluidic technology and electrochemical synthesis method is demonstrated for the efficient generation of known drug metabolites. These metabolites are typically generated on first pass hepatic oxidation in vivo. The FLUX Module, a new microfluidic electrochemical cell manufactured by Syrris Ltd., has been employed to generate the metabolites of five commercial drugs: Tolbutamide, Chlorpromazine, Diclofenac, Primidone and Albendazole.
