We have studied quantitatively the effect of the corepressor, S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), on the interaction between the E. coli methionine repressor, MetJ, and an idealised operator fragment, by recording measurements of surface plasmon resonance using a BIAcore instrument. We have recorded kinetic binding data in the presence of SAM, which carries a net(More)
Clenbuterol (CBL) is an orally active beta2-adrenoceptor agonist which has been used in veterinary medicine as a broncodilator and an agent of uterine relaxation. It has however become better known as a drug used illegally to promote growth in farm animals. A rapid and sensitive biosensor assay was developed to detect CBL residues in bovine urine. The(More)
Biosensor-based immunochemical screening assays for the detection of sulfadiazine (SDZ) and sulfamethazine (SMT) in muscle extract from pigs were developed. Samples were extracted with aqueous buffer and then centrifuged. This simple and straightforward preparation allowed up to 40 samples to be processed and analysed in 1 d. The limits of detection for the(More)
An automated optical biosensor instrument for measuring molecular interactions (Pharmacia BIAcore) has been used to characterise the epitopes recognised by 15 monoclonal antibodies raised against recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). The BIAcore combines an autosampler and integrated microfluidic cartridge for the introduction and(More)
Amperometric glucose sensors were constructed based on solid graphite electrodes, surface-modified with NAD+ dependent glucose dehydrogenase (GDH), Toluidine Blue O (TBO), and protective ionic polymers. The electrocatalytic oxidation of NADH was evaluated from cyclic voltammetry with TBO dissolved, adsorbed, and electrostatically or covalently bound to(More)
A reagentless carbon paste electrode was designed for D-lactic acid analysis in a flow injection system for the monitoring of the production of D-lactate in a batch fermentation. D-Lactate dehydrogenase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD(+)), a synthetic redox polymer containing covalently attached toluidine blue O as mediator, graphite powder, and(More)
The production of D-lactic acid by Lactobacillus delbrueckii (ATCC 9649) during fermentation was monitored on-line with a reagentless D-lactate dehydrogenase modified carbon paste electrode in a flow injection system integrated with a filtration sampling device. The time delay between sampling and detection was approximately 6 min. The use of an(More)
In this paper, a chromatographic system based on carbon dioxide with methanol as mobile phase, and diol silica as stationary phase has been investigated for metoprolol and related amino alcohols by addition of strong acids to systems with triethylamine base as primary additive. Standard conditions used were 10% of methanol, containing 24 mM of acid and 18(More)
