Aptamer-modified SiC quantum dots (DNA-SiC QDs) as fluorescent aptasensor are described for the determination of Proteus mirabilis. The SiC QDs were synthesized through one-pot hydrothermal method with particle sizes of about 14 nm. The amino-modified aptamers against P. mirabilis were conjugated to the surfaces of SiC QDs for bacteria recognition. The aptamer with an affinity for target protein can bound to P. mirabilis and this causes a decrease in the fluorescence intensity of DNA-SiC QDs. P. mirabilis levels were tested by the aptasensor within 35 min with fluorescence excitation/emission maxima at 320/420 nm. The linear range is from 103 to 108 CFU mL-1 and the limit of detection is 526 CFU mL-1 (S/N = 3). The aptasensor was used for determination of P. mirabilis in pure milk samples and obtained good accuracy (87.6-104.5%) and recovery rates (85-110.2%) were obtained. The detection in simulated forensic identification samples (pure milk, milk powder, blood, and urine) obtained gave satisfactory coincidence rates with the method of bacterial isolation and identification as standard. These results demonstrate that the fluorescent aptasensor is a potential tool for identification of P. mirabilis in forensic food poisoning cases. Graphical abstract Determination of P. mirabilis is based on SiC QDs fluorescence aptasensor. The SiC QDs with plentiful carboxyl groups on the surface can be synthesized via one-pot hydrothermal route. After activated by EDC/NHS, the SiC QDs can bind to aptamer to form fluorescence aptasensors. When the target P. mirabilis exists, the fluorescence of aptasensor will be quenched and the determination of the P. mirabilis based on the fluorescence change can be analyzed.

Forensic saliva identification represents an increasingly useful auxiliary means of crime investigations, particularly in sex crimes. Salivary bacteria detection techniques have been shown to be viable methods for identifying the presence of saliva. A one-pot method is described for the fabrication of bovine serum albumin-stabilized SiC nanoparticles (SiC@BSA NPs). The SiC@BSA NPs were conjugated to antibacterial peptide GH12 to allow for fluorometric detection and imaging of bacteria in saliva....

An aptamer-based assay is described for the determination of Salmonella typhimurium (S. typh). Carboxymethyl chitosan was loaded with amino-modified aptamer against S. typh, and then adsorbed on gold nanoparticles by electrostatic interaction to form a composite that acts as the molecular recognition element. In the presence of S. typh, it will be bound by the aptamer, and this changes the structure of the recognition element. On addition of salt solution, the gold nanoparticles agglomerate so t...

Abstract The microbial risk involved with natural food fermentation is largely unknown. Here, we report the prevalence of enteric bacterial pathogens in the traditional fermented foods marketed in Northeast region of India. A total of 682 samples of 39 food types (broadly categorized into fermented soybean, bamboo shoot, fish, milk and pork products) collected over four different seasons from seven states of India were analyzed in this study. Cultivation-independent analysis by MiSeq amplicon se...
Food safety has become an important public health issue worldwide. However, conventional methods for the detection of food-borne pathogens are complicated, and time-consuming. Moreover, the sensitivity is often low, and it is difficult to achieve high-throughput detection. In this study, we developed a TaqMan real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for the simultaneous detection and quantification of 12 common pathogens in a single reaction, including Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria m...

Bacterial infections may cause severe diseases such as tuberculosis, sepsis, nephritis and cystitis. The rapid and sensitive detection of bacteria is a prerequisite for the treatment of these diseases. The current gold standard for bacterial identification is bacteriological culture. However, culture-based identification takes 3–7 days, which is time-consuming and laborious. In this study, bacteria in urine samples were enriched using a portable filter-based pipette. Then, a centrifugal chip was...

Two-dimensional (2D) ultrathin SiC has received intense attention due to its broad band gap and resistance to large mechanical deformation and external chemical corrosion. However, the synthesis and application of ultrasmall 2D SiC quantum dots (QDs) has not been explored. Herein, we synthesize a type of monolayered 2D SiC QDs with advanced photoluminescence (PL) properties via a facile hydrothermal route. Their average size and thickness can be easily adjusted by altering the reaction time. The...

Proteus mirabilis is a model organism for urease-producing uropathogens. These diverse bacteria cause infection stones in the urinary tract and form crystalline biofilms on indwelling urinary catheters, frequently leading to polymicrobial infection. Recent work has elucidated how P. mirabilis causes all of these disease states. Particularly exciting is the discovery that this bacterium forms large clusters in the bladder lumen that are sites for stone formation. These clusters, and other steps o...

Coined three decades ago, the term aptamer and directed evolution have now reached their maturity. The concept that nucleic acid could modulate the activity of target protein as ligand emerged from basic science studies of viruses. Aptamers are short nucleic acid sequences capable of specific, high-affinity molecular binding, which allow for therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Compared to traditional antibodies, aptamers have several advantages, including small size, flexible structure, goo...
