Affinity improvement of a VEGF aptamer by in silico maturation for a sensitive VEGF-detection system.
Systematic evolution of ligands by exponential enrichment (SELEX) is an efficient method to identify aptamers; however, it sometimes fails to identify aptamers that bind to their target with highExpand

Screen-printed bienzymatic sensor based on sol-gel immobilized Nippostrongylusbrasiliensis acetylcholinesterase and a cytochrome P450 BM-3 (CYP102-A1) mutant.
Here, we describe the development of a bi-enzymatic biosensor that simplifies the sample pretreatment steps for insecticide detection, and opens the way for a highly sensitive detection ofExpand
