Essential thrombocythemia (ET) and polycythemia vera (PV) are myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) that share the JAK2(V617F) mutation in hematopoietic stem cells, leading to excessive production of predominantly platelets in ET, and predominantly red blood cells (RBCs) in PV. The major cause...

The aptamer (S2.2)-guided Ag-Au nanostructures (aptamer-Ag-Au) have been synthesized by photoreduction and validated by ultraviolet-visible light (UV-vis) spectra and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images. Differential interference contrast (DIC), fluorescence, and TEM images, and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectra indicated that...
