Fine discrimination of volatile compounds by graphene-immobilized odorant-binding proteins
Abstract We describe the fabrication and performance of a biosensor for odorants, using wildtype and engineered mutants of the Italian honeybee (Apis mellifera ligustica) odorant binding protein 14Expand
Recombinant production of an Aspergillus nidulans class I hydrophobin (DewA) in Hypocrea jecorina (Trichoderma reesei) is promoter-dependent
Fungal hydrophobins have potential for several applications because of their abilities to change the hydrophobicity of different surfaces. Yet because of their tendency for aggregation and attachmentExpand
Electronic Olfactory Sensor Based on A. mellifera Odorant‐Binding Protein 14 on a Reduced Graphene Oxide Field‐Effect Transistor
Abstract An olfactory biosensor based on a reduced graphene oxide (rGO) field‐effect transistor (FET), functionalized by the odorant‐binding protein 14 (OBP14) from the honey bee (Apis mellifera) hasExpand
Honey bee odorant-binding protein 14: effects on thermal stability upon odorant binding revealed by FT-IR spectroscopy and CD measurements
In the present work, we study the effect of odorant binding on the thermal stability of honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) odorant-binding protein 14. Thermal denaturation of the protein in the absenceExpand
Electronic biosensing with flexible organic transistor devices
In this short review, we summarize the design and implementation of organic semiconducting materials-based field-effect transistors (OFETs) and the fabrication and use of reduced graphene-oxideExpand
Electronic Biosensing with Functionalized rGO FETs
In the following we give a short summary of examples for biosensor concepts in areas in which reduced graphene oxide-based electronic devices can be developed into new classes of biosensors, whichExpand
Insights into structural features determining odorant affinities to honey bee odorant binding protein 14.
Molecular interactions between odorants and odorant binding proteins (OBPs) are of major importance for understanding the principles of selectivity of OBPs towards the wide range of semiochemicals.Expand
