Thrombin aptamer binding strength and stability is dependent on sterical parameters when used for atomic force microscopy sensing applications. Sterical improvements on the linker chemistry were developed for high-affinity binding. For this we applied single molecule force spectroscopy using two enhanced biotinylated thrombin aptamers, BFF and BFA(More)
We developed a biosensor based on the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) method for the study of the binding kinetics and detection of human cellular prions (PrP(C)) using DNA aptamers as bioreceptors. The biosensor was formed by immobilization of various biotinylated DNA aptamers on a surface of conducting polypyrrole modified by streptavidin. We demonstrated(More)
The peculiarities of glucose biosensors based on different generation of dendrimers (G0, G1 and G4) have been studied by amperometry and QCM techniques. It is shown that stable glucose biosensor can be obtained with low generation of dendrimers. The sensor sensitivity, however considerable, increased with increasing number of generation of dendrimers. This(More)
A simple and fast procedure to prepare a glucose-sensitive minielectrode is presented. It is based on a biotin-modified phospholipid bilayer to which a streptavidin-glucose oxidase complex is coupled. The assay is based on the electrochemical detection of enzymatically generated hydrogen peroxide at the potential +670 mV. In the case of an air-saturated(More)
The properties of glucose biosensors based on dendrimer layers on a gold support, which depend on the method of immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOX), were studied by amperometry. The kinetic parameters of enzymatic reactions, response time, sensitivity, detection limit, linear range, and enzyme turnover were determined. We showed that a more stable and(More)
We studied the properties of mixed alkanethiol-dendrimer layers on a gold support and their application in biosensing. We showed that properties of glucose sensor can be modified using a different ratio of 1-hexadecanethiol (HDT) and poly(amidoamine) dendrimer of first generation (G1). The cyclic voltammetry in the presence of the redox couple,(More)
We synthesized 25,26,27,28-tetrakis(11-sulfanylundecyloxy)calix[4]arene (CALIX) sensitive to dopamine and confirmed its structure by (1)H NMR and mass spectrometry. Chemisorption of CALIX molecules or their mixtures with 1-dodecanethiols (DDT) or hexadecanethiols (HDT) resulted in formation of compact low permeable monolayers as revealed by cyclic(More)
In order to arrive at an optimized s-BLM protocol, the influence of various metallic supports (silver, iridium and stainless steel) of different diameters (from 0.14 to 0.33 mm) on the process of forming and stability of supported phospholipid bilayer membranes was studied. In addition, experiments were made using different membrane-forming solutions, ionic(More)
We have designed an amperometric xanthine minibiosensor based on a supported biotinylated phospholipid membrane. To this membrane streptavidin-modified xanthine oxidase was coupled. The fabricated biosensor corresponds in shape and size to a needle of 0.3 mm in diameter. The assay is based on the electrochemical detection of enzymatically generated hydrogen(More)
We applied the acoustic transverse shear mode (TSM) method for study of the surface properties of a DNA aptasensor that specifically binds human immunoglobulin E (IgE). The biotinylated 45-mer DNA aptamers were immobilized on the surface of a self-assembled layer composed of a mixture of polyamidoamine dendrimers of the fourth generation with(More)
