Detection of heavy metal ions using protein-functionalized microcantilever sensors.

Abstract

Microcantilevers functionalized with metal-binding protein, AgNt84-6, are demonstrated to be sensors for the detection of heavy metal ions like Hg(2+) and Zn(2+). AgNt84-6, a protein that has the ability to bind multiple atoms of Ni(2+), Zn(2+), Co(2+), Cu(2+), Cd(2+) and Hg(2+) was attached to the gold-coated side of silicon nitride cantilevers via linker… (More)
