Aliphatic amines, including methylamine, are air-pollutants, due to their intensive use in industry and the natural degradation of proteins, amino acids, and other nitrogen-containing compounds in biological samples. It is necessary to develop systems for removal of methylamine from the air, since airborne methylamine has a negative effect on human health.(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate, rapid, and economic on-line analysis of ethanol is very desirable. However, available biosensors achieve saturation at very low ethanol concentrations and thus demand the time and labour consuming procedure of sample dilution. RESULTS Hansenula polymorpha (Pichia angusta) mutant strains resistant to allyl alcohol in methanol medium(More)
A laboratory prototype of a microcomputer-based analyzer was developed for quantitative determination of formaldehyde in liquid samples, based on catalytic chemosensing elements. It was shown that selectivity for the target analyte could be increased by modulating the working electrode potential. Analytical parameters of three variants of the amperometric(More)
L-lactate, a key metabolite of the anaerobic glycolytic pathway, plays an important role as a biomarker in medicine, in the nutritional sector and food quality control. For these reasons, there is a need for very specific, sensitive, and simple analytical methods for the accurate L-lactate measuring. A new highly selective enzymatic method for L-lactate(More)
A highly selective and sensitive method for the quantitative determination of L-arginine (Arg) with a fluorescent detection of the reaction product has been developed. The method is based on the use of human liver arginase I isolated from a recombinant producer strain, yeast Hansenula polymorpha, and 2,3-butanedione monoxime, which is used to detect(More)
The proposed method determines the activity of cholesterol esterase (CEH) and takes advantage of its ability to catalyze the hydrolysis of cholesterol esters naturally present in human serum. The assay is based on Allain's method of spectrophotometric determination of cholesterol by means of cholesterol oxidase, peroxidase, but using(More)
A novel methylamine-selective amperometric bienzyme biosensor based on recombinant primary amine oxidase isolated from the recombinant yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae and commercial horseradish peroxidase is described. Two amine oxidase preparations were used: free enzyme (AMO) and covalently immobilized on the surface of gold nanoparticles (AMO-nAu).(More)
D-lactate is a natural component of many fermented foods like yogurts, sour milk, cheeses, and pickles vegetable products. D-lactate in high concentrations is toxic for children and people with short bowel syndrome and provokes encephalopathy. These facts convincingly demonstrate a need for effective tools for the D-lactate removal from some food products.(More)
