Horseradish peroxidase is one of the most widely used marker enzymes in immunoassays. Several disadvantages are encountered upon chemical conjugation of peroxidase with antibodies or antigens, as are low reproducibility and undefined stoichiometry. We here describe for the first time the production of a recombinant fusion of a protein analyte with(More)
A highly sensitive express immunochromatography method for molecular diagnosis of plant virus infections was elaborated on the example of a model object — tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). The analysis time does not exceed 5 min, and the lower limit of TMV detection in non-clarified leaf extract (2–4 ng/ml) is comparable with the sensitivity of the enzyme-linked(More)
A test system is described and expanded upon for mass field immunochromatography assay on porous membrane carriers for rapid diagnostics of potato virus X (PVX) in potato leaf tissue and sprout extracts using colloidal gold nanoparticles as a marker. Sensitivity of the assay developed for PVX identification is found to be comparable to the sensitivity of(More)
Horseradish peroxidase is a key enzyme in bio- and immunochemical analysis. New approaches in functional expression of the peroxidase gene in E. coli cells and the subsequent refolding of the resulting protein yield a recombinant enzyme that is comparable in its spectral and catalytic characteristics to the native plant peroxidase. Genetic engineering(More)
We have demonstrated label-free and real-time detection of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in human serum using silicon nanowire field effect transistors (NW FETs) with Schottky contacts (Si-Ti). The NW FETs were fabricated from SOI material using high-resolution e-beam lithography, thin film vacuum deposition and reactive-ion etching processes eliminating(More)
A test-system based on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for quantitative determination of cyclosporin A (CSA) in human whole blood has been developed. The detection limit of the method was 25 ng/ml, the linearity of the method in the concentration range 60-1400 ng/ml varied from 94 to 105%, the variation coefficient did not exceed 8%. The novel(More)
A test-system based on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative detection of chloramphenicol (CAP) in foodstuff has been developed. The detection limit of the method was 0.05 μg/l. The procedures for milk samples preparation of various fat content and chicken muscles were optimized. Before the analysis milk was diluted 5-fold with a(More)
