The properties of glucose sensors fabricated by immobilization of glucose oxidase in a layer of electrochemically deposited polyaniline were investigated. Selective amperometric glucose sensors were prepared by immobilization of glucose oxidase on a Prussian Blue-modified platinum electrode in a layer of polyaniline during a one-step electropolymerization(More)
Carbon paste electrodes modified with baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a source of flavocytochrome b(2)) were investigated as amperometric biosensors for lactic acid. Phenazine methosulphate was used as a mediator. The optimal operational conditions of the electrodes were: an operating potential 0.0 V, solution pH 7.2, concentration of phenazine(More)
Menadione-mediated amperometry at carbon paste electrodes modified with various yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida pulcherrima, Pichia guilliermondii and Debaryomyces hansenii) was employed to monitor redox activity inside the yeast cells induced by glucose, fructose, sucrose, maltose or galactose. Continuous measurements revealed distinct modes(More)
Carbon paste electrode modified with baker' and wine yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a source of flavocytochrome b(2)) were investigated as amperometric biosensors for L-lactic acid. Before immobilization on the electrode surface, yeast cells were pretreated with various electrolytes, alcohols and weak organic acids. Electrode responses to L-lactic acid(More)
CONTENT Eupatorium cannabinum L. (Asteraceae) is as a potential source of biologically active compounds. The plant is used in traditional medicine for the treatment of diarrhea and livers diseases. OBJECTIVE The present study provides investigation on pharmacological properties (antioxidant and toxic activities) of essential oils of E. cannabinum,(More)
Formation of self-organized regular patterns (Liesegang patterns) due to reaction-diffusion process in the gel medium and related to vital activity of yeasts is presented. Two different yeast strains (Candida pulcherrima and non-Candida pulcherrima) possess a common characteristic feature to secrete a precursor which in the presence of iron(III) ions forms(More)
The electrochemical properties (such as the values of the formal potentials, the dependence of the formal potentials on solution pH, the reversibility of the electrochemical process) of flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) adsorbed on a titanium electrode were dependent on the electrolyte. The formal potentials of adsorbed FMN(More)
Mediated amperometry was exploited to monitor intracellular redox activity without cell disruption. Continuous measurements of menadione-mediated glucose currents at carbon paste electrodes with various immobilized intact wild type yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida pulcherrima, Clavispora lusitaniae, Wickerhamomyces anomalus, Pichia guilliermondii,(More)
