Biomimetic binders and catalysts have been generated in order to substitute the biological pendants in separation techniques and bioanalysis. The two major approaches use either “evolution in the test tube” of nucleotides for the preparation of aptamers or total chemical synthesis for molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). The reproducible production of aptamers is a clear advantage, whilst the preparation of MIPs typically leads to a population of polymers with different binding sites. The…

FFF-based high-throughput sequence shortlisting to support the development of aptamer-based analytical strategies

The present work aimed at investigating the potentialities of asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation (AF4) with UV detection for the development of a screening method of a large number of anti-lysozyme aptamers towards lysozyme, including randomized sequences and an interfering agent (serum albumin).

Enzymes as Tools in MIP-Sensors

Enzymes are useful tools for the preparation of MIPs for both low and high-molecular weight targets and enzyme-initiated polymerization has been introduced and the removal of protein templates by proteases has been successfully applied.

Artificial Biomimetic Electrochemical Assemblies

This review summarizes the recent achievements and analytical applications of electrosynthesized MIPs, in particular, for the detection of protein-based biomarkers and the origin of the gate effect in MIP-based biosensors.

How Reliable Is the Electrochemical Readout of MIP Sensors?

The in situ characterization of enzymes, MIP-based mimics of redox enzymes or enzyme-labeled targets, is based on the indication of an electroactive product, which allows the determination of both the activity of the bio(mimetic) catalyst and of the substrate concentration.
