We have recently succeeded in catching an active fraction of the terminal respiratory chain on an electrode surface. An artificial electron scavenger in the polyelectrolyte accepts electrons from the reduced enzyme and delivers them to the electrode. Consequently, the enzyme activity can be recognised as an electrical signal.
The project is run in co-operation with the biosensor group at FOA4 in Umeň.
