Optical determination of glutamine using a genetically engineered protein.


We have developed a reagentless optical biosensor for glutamine based on the Escherichia coli glutamine binding protein (GlnBP). Site-directed mutagenesis was performed to engineer single cysteine mutants which were covalently modified with environmentally sensitive sulfhydryl-reactive probes. The fluorescence emission of acrylodan and 2-(4'-(iodoacetamido… (More)
