Surface Plasmon Resonance Imaging Sensor for Cathepsin Determination Based on Immobilized Cystatin
Abstract:A specific SPRI sensor for cathepsin determination based on the interaction between immobilized cystatin and cathepsins has been developed. All cathepsins form the same calibration curve. The sensor dynamic response range is between 0.5 and 2.0 ng ml-1 and the detection limit is equal to 0.1 ng ml-1.

More about this publication?
- 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.
