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.

    • "Though some of these methods were sensitive, yet are relatively cumbersome and often need derivatisation and pre-concentration steps. Enzyme based-amperometric polyphenol biosensors have overcome these problems (Rajesh and Kaneto, 2005; Roy et al., 2005; Odaci et al., 2007). Two types of phenoloxidases , namely tyrosinase and laccase have been used in these biosensors. "

    ABSTRACT: A high-performance amperometric polyphenol biosensor was developed, based on covalent immobilization of Ganoderma sp. laccase onto copper nanoparticles (CuNP's)/chitosan (CHIT)/carboxylated multiwalled carbon nanotube (cMWCNT)/polyaniline (PANI)-modified gold (Au) electrode. The CuNP's and cMWCNT had a synergistic electrocatalytic effect in the matrix of CHIT. The biosensor showed optimum response at pH 6.0 (0.1 M acetate buffer) and 35°C, when operated at 50 mVs(-1). The biosensor exhibited excellent sensitivity (the detection limit was down to 0.156 μM for guaiacol), fast response time (less than 4s) and wide linear range (from 1 to 500 μM). Analytical recovery of added guaiacol was 96.40-98.46%. Within batch and between batch coefficients of variation were <2.6% and <5.3%, respectively. The enzyme electrode was used 300 times over a period of 7 months, when stored at 4°C.

    ABSTRACT: Laccase was immobilized on an electrode modified with a cysteine self-assembled monolayer and coated with functionalized quantum dots. The immobilized laccase is capable of directly transferring an electron. Immobilized laccase retained its activity to oxidize ascorbic acid (AA), and the apparent Michaelis–Menten constant was found to be 0.47mM. The modified electrode was used to determine AA in the 10 to 140μM concentration range, with linear response curve and a detection limit of 1.4μM (s/n = 3).

    ABSTRACT: A new graphite electrode modified with laccase from Aspergillus oryzae was developed for the determination of l-cysteine in pharmaceutical formulations. The biosensor was characterized with respect to phenolic compounds (caffeic acid, catechol, dopamine, hydroquinone, l-DOPA and methyl-l-DOPA), inhibition effects (ascorbic acid, benzoic acid, l-cysteine, sodium sulfite, thiourea and metal ions: Ag+, Zn2+, Hg2+), pH dependence, linear range, sensitivity and Michaelis–Menten constant. Measurements were performed in the presence of hydroquinone and l-cysteine in 0.1molL−1 phosphate buffer (pH 7.0) at an applied potential of −0.08V versus Ag/AgCl. The recovery of l-cysteine from three samples ranged from 89.7 to 103.4%, the relative standard deviation was less than 1.0% for a solution containing 4.95×10−4molL−1 hydroquinone (n=8) and the lifetime of the biosensor was 9 months (at least 950 determinations). Results obtained for the determination of l-cysteine in pharmaceutical formulations using the proposed biosensor and those obtained by a standard method are in agreement at the 95% confidence level.
