Quantitative Measurements of Carcinogen-DNA Adduct Using MALDI Time-Of-Flight Mass Spectrometry 2008 604 Many carcinogens and their electrophilic metabolites react readily with DNA, and form different types of DNA adducts. Clinically, DNA adducts have been linked to cancer diseases. Also, different DNA adducts have been used as biomarkers to monitor the...
Detection and sequencing of microRNA using MALDI time-of-flight mass spectrometry 2010 1671 The discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) and their abilities to regulate in vivo protein synthesis have led to growing interests in miRNA research. Due to their functions on regulating cellular processes that are related to diseases such as cancer, miRNAs...
Investigating the role of plasma proteins in the cellular uptake of metallic nanoparticles 2013 38 In recent years applications of nanotechnology have increased at an unprecedented rate. Nanotechnology, which is defined as the engineering of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, has proven beneficial in a number of scientific fields. In particu...
