Cholinesterase Biosensor Construction - A Review
Abstract:Biosensors using cholinesterases as the biorecognition component have been used to assay organophosphates and carbamates for a long time. In this review, some strategies convenient for biosensor construction are presented. Solutions for cholinesterase immobilization and output signal monitoring are presented as the basic presumptions for successful biosensor construction.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
