Research interests

(1) Tumor detection and diagnosis
Selective RNA-cleaving Fluorescent DNAaymes (RFD) can detect their specific ligands rapidly, sensitively, and accurately. These RFD probes have the potential to accomplish the requirement that to recognize tumors. Thus it is essential to develop tumor-specific RFD probes and the RFD detection kits. Our research is based on the SELEX technique(systematic evolution of ligands by exponential Enrichment),to obtain the DNA pool that can specifically identify tumor metabolite. RFD probe of the DNA pool can also distinguish tumor cells from normal cells and classify sub-type of tumor. It will be a new method to find biomarker for individualized treatment, tumor prevention and early diagnosis.

(2) Pokemon signaling pathways
Pokemon is a ubiquitous transcription factor of the POZ family composed of BTB/POZ domain at the N terminus and a Kruppel zinc finger domain at the C terminus. Pokemon plays a pivotal role in tumorigenesis as a proto-oncogene localized upstream of several oncogenes. It is may be efficent target for antitumor drug research. In our group, pokemon mediated tumor signal transduction pathways were studied using advanced technology and methods in the field of functional genomics and bioinformatics. Pokemon related gene  regulatory networks were established in breast and liver cancers, which included cell growth, migration, apoptosis, cell cycle, multidrug resistance signaling pathways and nucleoside, amino acid, lipid  material metabolism pathways. It will establishe a theoretical basis for the study on multigene regulatory network of tumor formation, selection and combination of anti-cancer drug targets with independent intellectual property rights.

(3) High-throughput screening method and multi-targeted anticancer drug discovery
Cancer is a disease of multiple genes and found novel multi-targeted drugs with high efficiency and low toxicity is important. A wide range of screening can significantly improve the multi-target compound hit rate and avoid patent protection. Combined with National University of Singapore, We have developed the support vector machine (SVM) multi-target screening system, which can meet the requirements of a wide range of drug screening. By using this system, the multiple target compounds were identified and synthesized by our lab.
(4) Tumor metabolomics and proteomics
Because there are a great variety of intracellular metabolites and proteins, and their properties are great different. Using the traditional analysis methods will lead to a large amount of information loss. Aiming to these problems, our research group is dedicated to the development of new strategies for targeted analysis of metabolites and proteomics in biological samples. Using these strategies, a more comprehensive metabolites and proteins information can be obtained. Our main research interest is the use of a variety of derivate means to derivatize the same kind of metabolites of proteins. It could largely increase their detection sensitivity and finally appiled for clinical sample analysis, which could provide a technical platform for the discovery of tumor biomarkers.
(5) Conjugated polymer-based bioanalysis, cell imaging, and drug delivery
Conjugated polymers have received considerable attention and have been widely studied in fluorescent biosensing and cell imaging. We focuse on the following areas: 1) design and synthesis of novel fluorescent probes for sensing and drug delivery; 2) develop biosensing methods targeting different biomarkers for the application of diagnosis and post evaluation; 3) cell imaging study for characterizing apoptosis and autophagy process.

Selected Achievements

Tumor detection based on RFD probes: We got some probes which could response to metabolites of MDA-MB-231 using SELEX screening. A partial probes could response and bind to metabolites of MDA-MB-231 with high specific advantage. These probes also showed higher effect on recognization to tumor tissue. 

Pokemon signal transduction pathways: Our results demonstrated a negative correlation between pokemon expression and survival rate of breast cancer patents. Pokemon could be a negative factor for prognosis. 

Origins of multi-target drugs: We compared the species origins of 939 approved and 369 clinical-trial drugs with those of 119 preclinical drugs and 19,721 bioactive natural products, and found that these drugs are clustered into144 of the 6,763 known species families in nature, with 80% of the approved drugs and 67% of the clinical-trial drugs concentrated in 17 and 30 drug-prolific families, respectively. This suggested that the drug distribution of drugs is clustered, and drugs are derived mostly from preexisting drug productive families, which provides clues for future bioprospecting and drug design.

Identification and optimization of excellent lead compounds Usually, a scaffold can derived thousands of compounds. How to identify or optimize lead compounds? By a systematic survey of new molecular entities approved by FDA, we identify favorable and unfavorable properties of lead compounds, which can be applied in future drug development efforts. (Nature biotechnology 2014, 32 (10), 979-80)

Peptide de Novo sequencing and protein quantification research: A novel stable isotope N-phosphorylation labeling strategy for peptide de novo sequencing and protein quantification based on organic phosphorus chemistry. The labeling reactiion could be performed easily and completed within 40 min in a one-pot reaction without additional cleanup procedures. By using nano liquid chromatography chip/time-of-flight mass spectrometry (nano LC-chip/TOF MS) for the protein quantification, the obtained results showed excellent correlation of the measured ratios to theoretical ratios with relative errors ranging from 0.5% to 6.7% and relative standard deviation of less than 10.6%, indicating that the developed method was reproducible and precise. The method development based on organic phosphorus chemistry offered a new approach for quantitative proteomics by using novel stable isotope labeling reagents.
Conjugated polyelectrolyte-based fluorescence assays for caspases, phosphatases, and proteases: We have developed conjugated polyelectrolyte-based fluorescence assays for caspase 3 and 8, phosphatases, and proteases. Such simple, convenient, and sensitive methods can be generalized to other similar targets for further application in disease diagnosis and evaluation.
