Development of a set of simple bacterial biosensors for quantitative and rapid measurements of arsenite and arsenate in potable water.
Testing for arsenic pollution is commonly performed with chemical test kits of unsatisfying accuracy. Bacterial biosensors are an interesting alternative as they are easily produced, simple, andExpand

Fluorescence-based sensing system for copper using genetically engineered living yeast cells.
A whole cell-based optical sensing system for copper was developed based on Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells harboring plasmid pYEX-GFPuv. The basis of this system was the ability of theExpand

A novel reagentless sensing system for measuring glucose based on the galactose/glucose-binding protein.
The galactose/glucose-binding protein (GBP) is synthesized in the cytoplasm of Escherichia coli in a precursor form and exported into the periplasmic space upon cleavage of a 23-amino-acid leaderExpand
