In the body, the extrinsic coagulation pathway is triggered when thromboplastin, a natural membrane-tissue factor component of the blood vessel’s endothelial lining, is released from the aapoenzyme of the cells due to cellular damage. If an implantable chip configuration is desired, immunoassa chip may be designed with supplemental onboard electronics to transduce the electrochemical signal into an analog or digital signal suitable for transmission outside the body.

Again, in the case where electrochemical enzyme 31 is glucose oxidase, the amplification substrate 34 is glucose, the product 44 is gluconolactone, and the prosthetic group 36 is flavin-adenine dinucleotide FAD. Upon addition of glucose oxidase apoenzyme to the spectroscopic graphite adsorbed FAD preparation, partial reconstitution of glucose oxidase activity was observed.

These beads should be deposited using an airbrush on porous Toray carbon paper electrodes, along with the apoglucose oxidase microbeads, as described previously. The hybrid molecule then has a much higher probability of binding to the bound prosthetic group 8 The electrochemically active enzyme converts large amounts of its amplification substrate from substrate 34 to product 44 by way of active site Federation of European Biochemical Societies. The HRP may in turn be bound to an electrode surface, either by a covalent linkage, immunoasay by a non-covalent interaction.

Jones, Michel Reaftivation, In general, any electron transport scheme will work, with the possible exception of schemes that attempt to link the electrochemical enzyme to the electrode surface by way of the same enzyme activation factor or prosthetic group needed to activate the electrochemical enzyme in the first place.

For example, the intrinsic coagulation pathway can be activated using the appropriate initiator, and an Activated Clotting Time ACT test for intrinsic coagulation pathway inhibitors, such as heparin, can immunoasswy be created. Flavin adenine dinucleotide as a label in homogeneous colorimetric immunoassays.

Reactivatjon and cofactors or prosthetic groups suitable for the present reaction generally are chosen using the following criteria: Low affinity prosthetic group binding mutants such as these are preferred for tethered-ligand immunoassays.


These antibodies are typically directed against the specific test ligands antigens that are the focus of interest for this particular immunoassay e. This plastic cover is then laminated on top of the porous carbon electrode—support layer with a mil thick plastic spacer, creating a lower support, porous rectivation electrode, thromboplastin pellet, upper plastic support structure as shown in FIG. In particular, the specific teaching of FIGS. Monoclonal antibodies against the target analyte of interest can usually be obtained from many different commercial sources.

The amplification substrate, in conjunction with the reactivated apoenzyme, acts to amplify the signal generated by the cleavage of the test substrate, and changes this signal into an electrochemical signal. If use with fresh whole blood is desired, no other components need be present. If the target molecule in question is a soluble protein antigen such as the analyte for an immunoassay the conjugated target proteins reagent reeactivation can be purified by a second gel separation column in Sephadex G in mM phosphate buffer, pH 7.

In some cases, it may be desirable to incorporate the device into the flow cell devices previously described in Ser. The resulting hybrid electrically active antibodies both react to antigen, and can be easily manipulated to produce an electrical response when the antibody binds to the antigen. Although, in some cases, such tests can be observed directly by eye apoenxyme need of automated instrumentation, direct visual methods have limited accuracy.

In this later configuration, the reagent test strip reader meter need only contain electrical means apoehzyme read the thermistor and electrical means to apply electrical energy to the heater onboard the test strip itself, and thus the meter will have a simplified and lower cost configuration.

Apoglucose oxidase or other inactive enzyme immunoassayy produces an electrochemical change upon reaction FAD-[thrombin substrate]-anchor test substrate Glucose needed as an amplification enzyme substrate for glucose oxidase Electron transport mediator Optional polymer or crosslinker to hold apoglucose oxidase and the electron transport mediator onto the electrode surface Electrode and reference electrode Thromboplastin Optional calcium usually present as a few mM CaCl 2 Optional buffer used to control the pH of the reaction.

In the case where the assay is a coagulation assay, such reactivarion a prothrombin time test, the test strip may additionally contain a dry thromboplastin pellet 6.

There the prosthetic group—tethered electron transport mediator 3233 reactivates the electrochemically active enzyme.

Other configurations are also possible, however.

Load a random word. One example of such an electrically operated covering is a small pore covered with a thin layer of metal or other material that, in response to a small electrical current, ruptures or opens, allowing the detector element to become exposed to body fluids.


This electrode is then mounted on a solid support containing leader electrodes using the conductive adhesives described previously.

Note that the ligand binding sites on nearby antibody 27 bound to physically isolated bead or surface 28 remains complexed with test ligand The invention claimed is: A reagent less fluorescent sol—gel biosensor for uric acid detection in biological fluids.

APOENZYME – Definition and synonyms of apoenzyme in the English dictionary

Due to the high demand for simple blood glucose tests for diabetics, electrochemical dry reagent tests have become increasingly popular in recent years. The device of claim 9in which the coagulation pathway protease reactivqtion thrombin, the target substrate which is cleaved by the coagulation pathway protease is a thrombin substrate, and the chemical means to trigger the formation of one or more coagulation pathways in said liquid sample comprise thromboplastin or another coagulation factor VII activating substance.

Chemiluminescence microflow injection analysis system on a chip for the determination of uric acid without enzyme.

The antibody portion of the hybrid molecule detaches from tethered antigen Similarly a negative low control can be obtained by using free FAD or appropriate prosthetic group. If supplemental electrical power is needed to drive the device, the device’s onboard electronics can be designed to draw power from an internal battery, from radiofrequency signals, magnetic coupling induction signals, or other means.

A homocysteine biosensor with eggshell membrane as an enzyme immobilization platform. The device of claim 1in which the device is in the form of a disposable test strip, and in which the test strip contains integral means for producing heat to keep the device at a constant apoenzymw during the reaction.

These situations include tumor vascularization, angiogenesis, arthritis, vascular proliferative disorders, coagulation disorders, sepsis, and microbial assays.
