Semi-synthetic biotin imprinting onto avidin crosslinked gold–silver nanoparticles
This study is a different and new application of molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs) based on sensor technologies. In this study, semi-synthetic biotin imprinted polymeric shell has been decorated onto the surface of avidin crosslinked Au/Ag nanoclusters using bis (2-2′-bipyridyl) MATyr-MATrp-ruthenium(II) (MATyr-Ru-MATrp) as photosensitive monomer. The synthesized nanoclusters have been used the recognition of biotin by flourometric method. Synthesis of the photosensitive monomers has been realized by AmiNoAcid (monomer) Decorated and Light Underpinning Conjugation Approach (ANADOLUCA) method. This method provides a strategy for the preparation of photosensitive ruthenium based aminoacid monomers and oligomers, aminoacid monomer-protein crosslinking using photosensitation and conjugation approach on micro and nano-structures by ruthenium-chelate based monomers. The affinity constant (K a) of biotin imprinted Au/Ag nanoclusters has been determined using the Scatchard method and found to be 3.89 × 105 M−1. The obtained calibration graph is linear for the range of 0.051 and 2.50 μM of biotin. The detection limit of biotin has been found to be 15 nM. Also, the reusability of these nanoclusters has been investigated and it has been observed that the same clusters could be used 10 times during a long period without any binding capacity decreasing.
