Abstract [en]

A novel biosensor for superoxide radical (O2{radical dot}-) detection based on Pseudomonas aeruginosa azurin immobilized on gold electrode was designed. The rate constant of azurin reduction by O2{radical dot}- was found to be 105 M-1 s-1 in solution and five times lower, i.e., 0.2 × 105 M-1 s-1, for azurin coupled to gold by 3,3′-dithiobis(sulfosuccinimidylpropionate) (DTSSP). The electron transfer rate between the protein and the electrode ranged from 2 to 6 s-1. The sensitivity of this biosensor to O2{radical dot}- was 6.8 × 102 A m-2 M-1. The response to the interference substances, such as uric acid, H2O2, and dimethylsulfoxide was negligible below 10 μM. The electrode was applied in three O2{radical dot}- generating systems: (i) xanthine oxidase (XOD), (ii) potassium superoxide (KO2), and (iii) stimulated neutrophil granulocytes. The latter was compared with luminol-amplified chemiluminescence. The biosensor responded to O2{radical dot}- in all three environments, and the signals were antagonized by superoxide dismutase. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
