Proteome profiling of the inclusion body (IB) fraction of recombinant proteins produced in Escherichia coli suggested that two small heat shock proteins, IbpA and IbpB, are the major proteins associated with IBs. In this study, we demonstrate that IbpA and IbpB facilitate the production of recombinant proteins in E. coli and play important roles in(More)
Fluorescent silica nanoparticles deposited with highly monodisperse gold nanoparticles (1-2 nm) were synthesized via the W/O method and intensive ultrasound irradiation. A large surface area of gold-doped fluorescent silica nanoparticle serves as a platform to immobilize a specific binding protein for biomolecules interaction in bioimaging applications.
Metal nanoparticles are garnering considerable attention owing to their high potential for use in various applications in the material, electronics, and energy industries. Recent research efforts have focused on the biosynthesis of metal nanomaterials using microorganisms rather than traditional chemical synthesis methods. Microorganisms have evolved to(More)
An efficient strategy for immobilizing proteins on a gold surface was developed by employing the gold binding polypeptide (GBP) as a fusion partner. Using the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP), severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) envelope protein (SCVme), and core streptavidin (cSA) of Streptomyces avidinii as model proteins,(More)
An active immobilization method utilizing the metal-binding property was developed and examined for its ability to facilitate the biosensing of avian influenza virus. The special biosensing performance with optical plasmonic analysis, including surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was evaluated on gold substrate and also by SPR imaging (SPRi) and localized SPR(More)
A novel fusion protein system employing the substrate-binding domain (SBD) of poly(hydroxyalkanoate) (PHA) depolymerase was developed for the specific immobilization of proteins on PHA microbeads, and was consequently used for immunoassays. The enhanced green fluorescent protein, red fluorescent protein, and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus(More)
We report the preparation of free-standing flexible conductive reduced graphene oxide/Nafion (RGON) hybrid films by a solution chemistry that utilizes self-assembly and directional convective-assembly. The hydrophobic backbone of Nafion provided well-defined integrated structures, on micro- and macroscales, for the construction of hybrid materials through(More)
The effective and strong immobilization of enzymes on solid surfaces is required for current biological applications, such as microchips, biofuel cells, and biosensors. Gold-binding polypeptide (GBP), a genetically designed peptide, possesses unique and specific interactions with a gold surface, resulting in improved enzyme stability and activity. Herein we(More)
