"Identification and Characterization of Cu2O- and ZnO-Binding Polypeptides by Escherichia coli Cell Surface Display: Toward an Understanding of Metal Oxide Binding"
by Thai et al. published in BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOENGINEERING, volume 87, issue 2 on pages 129- 137 (DOI: 10.1002/bit.20149)
The first author, Gopal Iyer, expresses his deep and sincere regrets to Corrine K. Thai, Haixia Dai, M.S.R. Sastry, Mehmet Sarikaya, Daniel T. Schwartz and Fran??ois Baneyx, his own coauthors who were unaware of this violation of publication principles, and the readers of this article.Quantum dots (QDOTs) have been widely recognized by the scientific community and the biotechnology industry, as witnessed by the exponential growth of this field in the past several years. We describe the synthesis and characterization of visible and near infrared QDots-a critical step for engineering organic molecules like proteins and peptides for building nanocomposite materials with multifunctional properties suitable for biological applications
