ABSTRACT A new approach based on potential control was firstly used for the immobilization of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) as the model
protein. The self-assembly monolayer (SAM) was prepared with 2-aminoethanethiol (AET) on the gold electrode. The charge on
HRP was adjusted by means of the acidity of the phosphate buffer solution (PBS) for dissolving the HRP. The influence of electric
potential on HRP immobilization was investigated by means of colorimetric immunoassay of enzyme-substrate interaction (CIESI)
using an automatic plate reader. The HRP modified electrodes were characterized with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS)
as well as atomic force microscope (AFM) on template-stripped gold surface. The potential for maximum immobilization of HRP
was near the zero charge potential. The result indicates that controlled potential can affect the course of HRP immobilization
without the loss of enzymic activity. It is of great significance for the control of biomolecular self-assembly and the intrinsic
electric device.

    ABSTRACT: A series of organized multilayers have been formed by the alternative adsorption of positively charged poly(dimethyldiallylammonium chloride) (PDAC) and purple membrane (PM) fragments in suspensions at pH = 4-11. Both UV-vis spectrophotometry and quartz crystal micro-balance (QCM) technique were used to monitor the deposition process of PDAC/bacteriorhodopsin (bR) multilayers, suggesting that PM fragments and PDAC are deposited alternatively on the substrate uniformly. Upon illumination, all these multilayers generate photovoltages with defined signs. The negative sign of photovoltage accompanying the formation ofM-state at pH < 7 indicates that the extracellular side of PM fragments is directed toward the substrate; and the positive sign at pH⩾7 indicates that the cytoplasmic side of PM fragments is directed toward the substrate. In addition, the long-lived multipleM-state has been observed in all multilayer films. Moreover,M-state at high pH, which shows the longer lifetime than that at low pH, decays into the ground state (B) completely in 30 min.

    ABSTRACT: The self-assembly monolayer (SAM) was prepared with 2-aminoethanethiol (AET) on the gold electrode. A new approach based on potential was first used to control DNA self-assembly covalently onto the SAM with the activation of l-ethyl-3(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-carbodiimide (EDC) and N-hydroxysulfosuccinimide (NHS). The influence of potential on DNA self-assembly was investigated by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV), AC impedance, Auger electron spectrometry (AES) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The result proves that controlled potential can affect the course of DNA self-assembly. More negative potential can restrain the DNA self-assembly, while more positive potential can accelerate the DNA self-assembly, which is of great significance for the control of DNA self-assembly and will find wide application in the field of DNA-based devices.

    ABSTRACT: Peroxidase was immobilized in the regenerated silk fibroin membrane prepared from waste silk and the structures of the blend membranes of regenerated silk fibroin and peroxidase were investigated with ir and scanning electron microscopy, indicating that the two kinds of macromolecules were immiscible and their intermolecular interactions existed in the blend membrane. Cyclic voltammetry and constant applied potential measurements tested the catalytic activity of the immobilized peroxidase in water-iso-propyl alcohol system by employing ferrocyanide as an electron transfer mediator between the enzyme and a glassy carbon electrode. Regenerated silk fibroin coating appeared very attractive for entrapping the enzyme onto the electrode since the immobilized peroxidase showed long-term stability in the organic media.
