It takes two to tango – The case of thebaine 6-O-demethylase

Publication year: 2020
Authors: Kachhap S. a*, Wojdyla Z. a*, Komorek P. a, Kluza A. a, Kurpiewska K. ab, Jachimska B. a,Borowski T.a
Published in: International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, 2020, Vol. 163, p. 718-729

Thebaine 6-O-demethylase (T6ODM) is an Fe(II)/2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase catalysing two oxidative O-demethylation reactions in morphine biosynthesis. Its crystal structure revealed a large active site pocket which is at least two times larger than necessary to accommodate a substrate (thebaine or oripavine) molecule. Since so far no crystal structures have been obtained for enzyme-substrate complex, which is necessary…

Surface Preconditioning Influences the Antifouling Capabilities of Zwitterionic and Nonionic Polymer Brushes

Publication year: 2020
Authors: Víšová I. 1, Vrabcová M. 1, Forinová M. 1, Zhigunová Y. 1, Mironov V. 1, Houska . 1, Bittrich E. 2, Eichhorn K. 2, Hashim H. 3,4, Schovánek P. 1,5, Dejneka A. 1, Vaisocherová - Lísalová H. 1
Published in: Langmuir, 2020, Vol. 36, 29, 8485–8493

Polymer brushes not only represent emerging surface platforms for numerous bioanalytical and biological applications but also create advanced surface-tethered systems to mimic real-life biological processes. In particular, zwitterionic and nonionic polymer brushes have been intensively studied because of their extraordinary resistance to nonspecific adsorption of biomolecules (antifouling characteristics) as well as the ability to be…

Specificity and regenerability of short peptide ligands supported on polymer layers for immunoglobulin G binding and detection

Publication year: 2013
Authors: Zhang Y. 1, Islam N. 2, Carbonell R.G. 2, Rojas O.J. 1,2
Published in: ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, 2013, Vol.5 (16), p. 8030-7

We demonstrate the specificity, regenerability, and excellent storage stability of short peptide-based systems for detection of immunoglobulin G (IgG). The bioactive component consisted of acetylated-HWRGWVA (Ac-HWRGWVA), a peptide with high IgG binding affinity, which was immobilized onto copolymer matrixes of poly(2-aminoethyl methacrylate hydrochloride-co-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (poly(AMA-co-HEMA)). Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and quartz crystal microgravimetry (QCM) were…

Adhesion and Structural Changes of PEGylated Lipid Nanocarriers on Silica Surfaces

Publication year: 2021
Authors: Grad P. 1, Edwards K. 1, Hernández V.A. 2
Published in: Physchem, 2021, Vol. 1(2), p. 133-151

PEGylated lipid nanoparticles have a continuously expanding range of applications, particularly within pharmaceutical areas. Hereby, it is shown with the help of the Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation monitoring (QCM-D) and other surface sensitive techniques that, at room temperature, PEGylated liposomes and lipodisks adhere strongly to silica surfaces resulting in the displacement of the hydration…

Early diagnosis of the infection caused by human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) is vital to achieve efficient therapeutic treatment and limit the disease spreading when the viremia is at its highest level. To this end, a point-of-care HIV-1 detection carried out with label-free, low-cost, and ultra-sensitive screening technologies would be of great relevance. Herein, a…

Monitoring biomolecular interaction between folic acid and bovine serum albumin

Publication year: 2020
Authors: Chilom C.G. a, David M. b, Florescu M. b
Published in: Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, 2020, Vol. 230, p.118074

Folic acid is a bioactive food component whose deficiency can lead to a variety of health problems, while a high intake of folic acid can reduce the cytotoxicity of natural killer cells. The binding mechanism of folic acid to free bovine serum albumin (BSA) was studied using fluorescence, while the biomolecular interaction between confined-BSA and…

Herein, a biosensor based on a reduced graphene oxide field effect transistor (rGO-FET) functionalized with the cascading enzymes arginase and urease was developed for the detection of L-arginine. Arginase and urease were immobilized on the rGO-FET sensing surface via electrostatic layer-by-layer assembly using polyethylenimine (PEI) as cationic building block. The signal transduction mechanism is based on the ability of the cascading enzymes to selectively perform chemical transformations and…

Layer-by-layer (LbL) self-assembly has been used for the development of a new glucose label-free biosensor. Glucose oxidase (GOx) was incorporated in a multilayer film on a gold electrode, previously modified with a film of the conducting polymer poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT), by electropolymerization, for better conductivity. Multilayer films, containing the enzyme and nitrogen doped graphene (NG) dispersed…
