DNA as a Support for Glucose Oxidase Immobilization at Prussian Blue-Modified Glassy Carbon Electrode in Biosensor Preparation
Abstract:An amperometric glucose biosensor has been developed using DNA as a matrix of Glucose oxidase (GOx) at Prussian-blue (PB)-modified glassy carbon (GC) electrode. GC electrode was chemically modified by the PB. GOx was immobilized together with DNA at the working area of the PB-modified electrode by placing a drop of the mixture of DNA and GOx. The response of the biosensor for glucose was evaluated amperometrically. Upon immobilization of glucose oxidase with DNA, the biosensor showed rapid response toward the glucose. On the other hand, no significant response was obtained in the absence of DNA. Experimental conditions influencing the biosensor performance were optimized and assessed. This biosensor offered an excellent electrochemical response for glucose concentration in μ mol level with high sensitivity and selectivity and short response time. The levels of the relative standard deviation (RSDs), (<4%) for the entire analyses reflected a highly reproducible sensor performance. Through the use of optimized conditions, a linear relationship between current and glucose concentration was obtained up to 4 × 10−4 M. In addition, this biosensor showed high reproducibility and stability.
