ABSTRACT Two biosensors based on Trametes versicolor laccase (TvL) were developed for the determination of phenolic compounds. Commercial oxygen electrode and ferrocene-modified screen-printed graphite electrodes were used for preparation of laccase biosensors. The systems were calibrated for three phenolic acids. Linearity was obtained in the concentration range 0.1-1.0muM caffeic acid, 0.05-0.2muM ferulic acid, 2.0-14.0muM syringic acid for laccase immobilised on a commercial oxygen electrode and 2.0-30.0muM caffeic acid, 2.0-10.0muM ferulic acid, 4.0-30.0muM syringic acid for laccase immobilised on ferrocene-modified screen-printed electrodes. Furthermore, optimal pH, temperature and thermal stability studies were performed with the commercial oxygen electrode. Both electrodes were used for determination of a class of phenolic acids, achieving a cheap and fast tool and an easy to be used procedure for screening real samples of human plasma.

    ABSTRACT: Herein, a mediated Gluconobacter oxydans biosensor was constructed by immobilizing the intact cells on the modified gold electrode. The surface was initially modified with gold nanoparticles and then, self-assembled monolayers were formed by using 6-(ferrocenyl) hexanethiol. Finally, G. oxydans cells were adsorbed onto the surfaces and the bio-active layer was covered with a dialysis membrane. As well as the response characteristics, stabilities and substrate specificities ere investigated.

    ABSTRACT: The present work reports the gallic acid (GA) interference on polyphenolic amperometric biosensing using Trametes versicolor laccase (TvLac). GA′ inhibitory effect on TvLac activity was investigated on the oxidation of caffeic acid (CA) by free TvLac and its immobilised form on modified polyethersulfone membrane (PES/TvLac), using spectrophotometric and amperometric biosensor detection methods. The results have indicated that GA presents inhibitory behaviour on TvLac activity in a concentration-dependent manner. The GA concentration leading to 50% activity lost, IC50, was determined to be 19.15±0.11μM and 5.11±0.19μM for free and immobilised enzyme, respectively. The results have also shown that GA exhibited a competitive and a mixed inhibition types on the TvLac activity for spectrophotometric and amperometric biosensor methods, respectively. Further GA′ and CA′ cyclic voltammetry studies have demonstrated that GA′ oxidation products interfered with CA′ redox reaction products. In fact, a decrease of the reduction current was observed at cyclic voltammograms of CA, when mixed with GA. Therefore, the GA′ interference on polyphenolic amperometric biosensing is the result of the combination of two factors: on one hand, we have the inhibitory enzymatic effect, and on the other, the reaction of GA′ oxidation products with the o-quinones obtained by the enzymatic oxidation of CA. Both gave rise to the amperometric signal decreasing effect.

    ABSTRACT: The mesoporous silica sieve MCM-41 containing methylene blue (MB) provides a suitable immobilization of biomolecule matrix due to its uniform pore structure, high surface areas, good biocompatibility and nice conductivity. Based on this, a facilely fabricated amperometric biosensor by entrapping laccase into the MB modified MCM-41/PVA composite film has been developed. Laccase from Trametes versicolor is assembled on a composite film of MCM-41 containing MB/PVA modified Au electrode and the electrode is characterized with respect to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopic (SEM), Cyclic voltammetry (CV), response time, detection limit, linear range and activity of laccase. The laccase modified electrode remains good redox behavior in pH 4.95 acetate buffer solution, at room temperature in present of 0.1 mM catechol. The response time (t90%) of the modified electrode is less than 4 s for catechol. The detection limit is 0.331 µM and the linear detect range is about from 4.0 µM to 87.98 µM for catechol with a correlation coefficient of 0.99913(S/N=3). The apparent Michaelis–Menten (KMapp) is estimated using the Lineweaver–Burk equation and the KMapp value is about 0.256 mM. This work demonstrated that the mesoporous silica MCM-41 containing MB provides a novel support for laccase immobilization and the construction of biosensors with a faster response and better bioactivity.
