  4. DNA-Functionalized Interfaces Studied by Second Harmonic Generation

    Rr171x42m?file=thumbnail
    Description: The nonlinear optical technique, second harmonic generation (SHG), is applied here for the first time to probe single and double strand DNA (ssDNA and dsDNA) chemically attached to fused quartz/water interfaces. DNA interfaces are often a critical functional component of biodetection, thus, the development of molecular biosensors requires a thorough...

  5. Structure and Function of Coordination Sites in Metal Trafficking Proteins

    Nz805z82j?file=thumbnail
    Description: Many metal ions are of critical importance in many cellular functions. The very properties of these metal ions that make them useful also make them toxic to the cell. In the course of evolution, many metal ion homeostasis systems have developed to provide balance between the necessity and toxicity of...

  6. Design and synthesis of small molecules, polyamines, and N-acylated polyamines that affect biological systems

    0k225b202?file=thumbnail
    Description: The focus of this thesis is the design of non-natural molecules for use in biological applications. Chapter one details a strategy to use small molecules to reactivate mutated p53, an oncoprotein that is prevalent in several types of cancer, back to its wild-type function. Wild-type p53 has the ability to...

  7. Probing the Relationship between Structure and Function of Self-Assembling Conjugated Molecules

    5d86p0402?file=thumbnail
    Description: This thesis discusses the synthesis, self-assembly, and conductivity properties of novel oligothiophene derivatives with an emphasis on how molecular structure effects the assembly. In order to facilitate self-assembly in conjugated molecules, specific non-covenant forces were included into the molecular design of several derivatives. First, an amphiphilic oligothiophene derivative consisting of...

  8. Nanofabrication of Transition Metal Chalcogenides and Plasmonic Structures

    Rf55z7888?file=thumbnail
    Description: The work described in this dissertation focuses on the development of a general approach to create nanoscale transition metal chalcogenide materials and new methods for controlling architecture of gold pyramidal structures. In the former, we used chemical nanofabrication, a combination of top-down patterning and bottom-up solid-state synthesis, to achieve control...

  10. Peptide-Based Magnetic Resonance Imaging Probes for Detection of Enzyme Activity

    9c67wm95d?file=thumbnail
    Description: Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a non-invasive modality that allows for deep-tissue imaging. Contrast agents decrease image acquisition time and increase the intrinsic contrast between different types of tissue. A new family of enzyme-activated contrast agents is emerging that has the ability to report on enzymatic processes in vivo. Towards this...
