Comparison of the stability of five plant peroxidases (horseradish, royal palm tree leaf, soybean, and cationic and anionic peanut peroxidases) was carried out under acidic conditions favorable for synthesis of polyelectrolyte complexes of polyaniline (PANI). It demonstrates that palm tree peroxidase has the highest stability. Using this peroxidase as a(More)
Native horseradish peroxidase (HRP) on graphite has revealed approximately 50% of the active enzyme molecules to be in direct electron transfer (ET) contact with the electrode surface. Some novel plant peroxidases from tobacco, peanut and sweet potato were kinetically characterised on graphite in order to find promising candidates for biosensor applications(More)
A direct competitive chemiluminescent enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (CL-ELISA) for detecting aflatoxin M1 (AFM1) was developed. To improve the sensitivity of the assay, a mixture of 3-(10'-phenothiazinyl)-propane-1-sulfonate (SPTZ) and 4-morpholinopyridine (MORPH) was used to enhance peroxidase-induced CL. The concentrations of the coating anti-AFM1(More)
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a severe viral disease with high fatality rate. CCHF virus is endemic in parts of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and southeastern Europe. Rapid diagnostics of CCHF is vital for appropriate clinical management and prevention of secondary spread from human-to-human. Currently, diagnostics relies on real-time RT-PCR(More)
Detailed differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), steady-state tryptophan fluorescence and far-UV and visible CD studies, together with enzymatic assays, were carried out to monitor the thermal denaturation of horseradish peroxidase isoenzyme c (HRPc) at pH 3.0. The spectral parameters were complementary to the highly sensitive but integral method of DSC.(More)
Three amperometric enzyme electrodes have been constructed by adsorbing anionic royal palm tree peroxidase (RPTP), anionic sweet potato peroxidase (SPP), or cationic horseradish peroxidase (HRP-C) on spectroscopic graphite electrodes. The resulting H(2)O(2)-sensitive biosensors were characterized both in a flow injection system and in batch mode to evaluate(More)
Micellar peroxidase-catalyzed synthesis of chiral polyaniline (PANI) in the presence of dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid (DBSA) was developed. The effect of DBSA concentration on the catalytic efficiency of horseradish and palm tree peroxidases was examined. Favorable conditions for the enzymatic synthesis of chiral PANI, determined by a multiple factors design,(More)
Anionic soybean peroxidase Glycine max (SbP) is shown to efficiently catalyze luminol oxidation by hydrogen peroxide. Contrary to horseradish peroxidase, the presence of p-iodophenol in the reaction medium affects slightly the efficiency of SbP catalysis. A maximal intensity of chemiluminescence, produced through this enzymatic reaction, was detected at pH(More)
Kinetic study of peroxidase-catalyzed oxidation of 3-(10'-phenothiazinyl)propane-1-sulfonate (SPTZ) by hydrogen peroxide demonstrated that the addition of 4-dialkylaminopyridines to a substrate solution significantly increased a rate of production of SPTZ cation radical and did not affect the rate of decomposition of this radical. These results explain the(More)
