  • Amperometric Determination of Ascorbic Acid on an Au Electrode Modified by a Composite Film of Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) and Superconductive Carbon Black
    ZHOU Xinfei;HE Kunyun;WANG Yu;ZHENG Haitao;SUYE Shin-ichiro
    Analytical Sciences 31(5) 429-436 Nov.  2015 Refereed
    A new composite film-modified electrode was prepared by the electropolymerisation of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) and superconductive carbon black (SCB) on a gold electrode. The PEDOT-SCB/Au electrode exhibited excellent ability towards the electrocatalytic oxidation of ascorbic acid, in terms of a 480 mV shift of the oxidation potential in the negative direction, and a dramatically enhanced oxidation current. Under the optimum conditions, the amperometric detection of ascorbic acid provided a wide linear detection range from 1.0 × 10−7 to 8.0 × 10−4 M, and a detection limit of 5.0 × 10−8 M (S/N = 2) as well as good reproducibility and stability.
  • Estimation of the Core-Shell Formation Efficiency of Electrospun Collagen/Polylactic Acid Nanofibers
    KATO Arata;SUYE Shin-ichiro;FUJITA Satoshi
    Nanofibers are expected to become useful as medical materials including tissue engineering scaffolds, wound dressings, and carriers for drug delivery systems (DDS), because of their high specific surface area, porosity, anisotropy and the molecular order. Especially, the potential of core-shell nanofibers, that are composed of two types of materials for core and shell, are drawing attention to DDS materials because it is possible to suppress the diffusion of the drug from the core material through the shell material to realize a more precise controlled release. To use core-shell fibers in DDSs, the detailed characterization of the structure, including core-shell ratio, the surface area, and the core-shell formation efficiency is required. However, the structural analysis of individual fibers has not yet been fully carried out, although bulk properties have been well examined. Here, to obtain key structural information for DDS materials, we estimated the efficiency of polymer incorporation into complete core-shell fibers from cross-sectional images of the core-shell nanofibers by SEM observation.

    IEEJ Transactions on Sensors and Micromachines 136(11) 461-464 2016

    Nanofibers have exceptional properties due to their diameter and large surface area to mass ratio. Thus, nanofibers can potentially be used as electrodes in highly sensitive biosensing systems, bio-fuel cells, and high-power devices. In this study, conductive polyurethane-FeCl3 composite nanofibers were fabricated by electrospinning. The optimal electrospinning conditions were investigated, and the physical and chemical properties of the composite were evaluated. Conductive polyurethane/FeCl3 fibers of 1-5 µm in diameter were obtained, and their conductivity was 13.7±1.47×10-3 S/m. The effects of the morphology of the material were also monitored, and it was found that a fiber mat was 10 times more conductive than a film, because the crystallinity of the polyurethane and the Fe3+ distribution affect the electrical properties. The conductive nanofibers are flexible because the fiber substrate is made of polyurethane. Therefore, the fibers demonstrated in this study could make it possible to control the electric properties by modifying the nanofiber morphology.

  • An Electrochemical DNA Sensing System Using Modified Nanoparticle Probes for Detecting Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
    Sakamoto Hiroaki;Amano Yoshihisa;Satomura Takenori;Suye Shin-Ichiro
    Methods in molecular biology (Clifton, N.J.) 1572 2017
    :We have developed a novel, highly sensitive, biosensing system for detecting methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The system employs gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), magnetic nanoparticles (mNPs), and an electrochemical detection method. We have designed and synthesized ferrocene- and single-stranded DNA-conjugated nanoparticles that hybridize to MRSA DNA. Hybridized complexes are easily separated by taking advantage of mNPs. A current response could be obtained through the oxidation of ferrocene on the AuNP surface when a constant potential of +250 mV vs. Ag/AgCl is applied. The enzymatic reaction of L-proline dehydrogenase provides high signal amplification. This sensing system, using a nanoparticle-modified probe, has the ability to detect 10 pM of genomic DNA from MRSA without amplification by the polymerase chain reaction. Current responses are linearly related to the amount of genomic DNA in the range of 10-166 pM. Selectivity is confirmed by demonstrating that this sensing system could distinguish MRSA from Staphylococcus aureus (SA) DNA.

    Journal of bioscience and bioengineering 2018
    :A stable d-lactate electrochemical sensing system was developed using a dye-linked d-lactate dehydrogenase (Dye-DLDH) from an uncultivated thermophilic archaeon, Candidatus Caldiarchaeum subterraneum. To develop the system, the putative gene encoding the Dye-DLDH from Ca. Caldiarchaeum subterraneum was overexpressed in Escherichia coli, and the expressed product was purified. The recombinant enzyme was a highly thermostable Dye-DLDH that retained full activity after incubation for 10 min at 70°C. The electrode for detection of d-lactate was prepared by immobilizing the thermostable Dye-DLDH and multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) within Nafion membrane. The electrocatalytic response of the electrode was clearly observed upon exposure to d-lactate. The electrode response to d-lactate was linear within the concentration range of 0.03-2.5 mM, and it showed little reduction in responsiveness after 50 days. This is the first report describing a d-lactate sensing system using a thermostable Dye-DLDH.

    Journal of nanoscience and nanotechnology 19(6) 2019
    :For increasing the output of biofuel cells, increasing the cooperation between enzyme reaction and electron transfer on the electrode surface is essential. Highly oriented immobilization of enzymes onto a carbon nanotube (CNT) with a large specific surface area and excellent conductivity would increase the potential for their application as biosensors and biofuel cells, by utilizing the electron transfer between the electrode-molecular layer. In this study, we prepared a CNT-enzyme complex with highly oriented immobilization of enzyme onto the CNT surface. The complex showed excellent electrical characteristics, and could be used to develop biodevices that enable efficient electron transfer. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) were dispersed by pyrene butyric acid N-hydroxysuccinimide ester, and then N-(5-amino-1-carboxypentyl) iminodiacetic acid (AB-NTA) and NiCl₂ were added to modify the NTA-Ni2+ complex on the CNT surface. Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ)-dependent glucose dehydrogenase (GDH) was immobilized on the CNT surface through a genetically introduced His-tag. Formation of the MWCNT-enzyme complex was confirmed by monitoring the catalytic current electrochemically to indicate the enzymatic activity. PQQ-GDH was also immobilized onto a highly ordered pyrolytic graphite surface using a similar process, and the enzyme monolayer was visualized by atomic force microscopy to confirm its structural properties. A biofuel cell was constructed using the prepared CNT-enzyme complex and output evaluation was carried out. As a result, an output of 32 μW/cm² could be obtained without mediators.

    Biotechnology letters 39(2) 2017
    OBJECTIVES:To design and construct a novel bio-anode electrode based on the oxidation of glutamic acid to produce 2-oxoglutarate, generating two electrons from NADH.;RESULTS:Efficient enzyme reaction and electron transfer were observed owing to immobilization of the two enzymes using a mixed self-assembled monolayer. The ratio of the immobilized enzymes was an important factor affecting the efficiency of the system; thus, we quantified the amounts of immobilized enzyme using a quartz crystal microbalance to further evaluate the electrochemical reaction. The electrochemical reaction proceeded efficiently when approximately equimolar amounts of the enzyme were on the electrode. The largest oxidation peak current increase (171 nA) was observed under these conditions.;CONCLUSION:Efficient multi-enzyme reaction on the electrode surface has been achieved which is applicable for biofuel cell application.
  • Native collagen hydrogel nanofibres with anisotropic structure using core-shell electrospinning.
    Wakuda Yuka;Nishimoto Shohei;Suye Shin-Ichiro;Fujita Satoshi
    Scientific reports 8(1) 2018
    :Collagen hydrogel is a popular extracellular matrix (ECM) material in regenerative medicine and has an isotropic structure. In contrast, native ECM has an anisotropic structure. Electrospinning of collagen dissolved in organic solvents is widely used for fabricating anisotropic collagen nanofibres; however, such fibres are water-soluble and require cross-linking before use as scaffolds for cell culture. Herein, electrospinning using a core-shell nozzle was employed to spin an aqueous acidic solution of collagen and encapsulate it within a shell of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). Subsequently, the core collagen was gelled, and the shell PVP was washed away using a basic ethanol solution to yield anisotropic collagen hydrogel nanofibres. Immunostaining and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy revealed that the obtained fibres were composed of collagen, and surface PVP was removed completely. Circular dichroism measurements confirmed that the fibres exhibited the triple helical structure characteristic of collagen. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells cultured on the collagen hydrogel fibres were oriented along the fibre direction. Hence, this method is suitable for fabricating fibrous anisotropic collagen hydrogels without chemical and thermal cross-linking, and can facilitate the development of safe medical materials with anisotropy similar to that of native ECM.
  • A L-proline/O2 biofuel cell using L-proline dehydrogenase (LPDH) from Aeropyrum pernix.
    Tonooka Aina;Komatsu Tomohiro;Tanaka Shino;Sakamoto Hiroaki;Satomura Takenori;Suye Shin-Ichiro
    Molecular biology reports 45(6) 2018
    :To utilize amino acids from food waste as an energy source, L-proline/O2 biofuel cell was constructed using a stable enzyme from hyperthermophilic archaeon for long-term operation. On the anode, the electrocatalytic oxidation of L-proline by L-proline dehydrogenase from Aeropyrum pernix was observed in the presence of ferrocenecarboxylic acid as mediator. On the cathode, electrocatalytic oxygen reduction was detected. Ketjenblack modification of carbon cloth substrate increased the current density due to increased laccase loading and enhanced electron transfer reaction. The biofuel cell using these electrodes achieved a current density of 6.00 µA/cm2. We successfully constructed the first biofuel cell that generates power from L-proline.

    Extremophiles : life under extreme conditions 22(6) 2018
    :A gene-encoding a dye-linked D-lactate dehydrogenase (Dye-DLDH) homolog was identified in the genome of the hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermoproteus tenax. The gene was expressed in Escherichia coli and the product was purified to homogeneity. The recombinant protein exhibited highly thermostable Dye-DLDH activity. To date, four types of Dye-DLDH have been identified in hyperthermophilic archaea (in Aeropyrum pernix, Sulfolobus tokodaii, Archaeoglobus fulgidus, and Candidatus Caldiarchaeum subterraneum). The amino acid sequence of T. tenax Dye-DLDH showed the highest similarity (45%) to A. pernix Dye-DLDH, but neither contained a known FAD-binding motif. Nonetheless, both homologs required FAD for enzymatic activity, suggesting that FAD binds loosely to the enzyme and is easily released unlike in other Dye-DLDHs. Our findings indicate that Dye-DLDHs from T. tenax and A. pernix are a novel type of Dye-DLDH characterized by loose binding of FAD.
  • Effects of multicopper oxidase orientation in multiwalled carbon nanotube biocathodes on direct electron transfer.

    Biotechnology and applied biochemistry 2018
    :In this study, multicopper oxidase (MCO) was immobilized on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) at two different orientations, and the electrochemical properties of the resulting cathodes were investigated. Using N- or C-terminal His-tagged MCO and MWCNTs, we constructed two types of cathodes. We assumed that the distance between the type 1 (T1)Cu of the C-terminal His-tagged MCO and the MWCNT surface was lesser than that between the T1Cu of the N-terminal His-tagged MCO and the MWCNT surface. In addition, in the C-terminal His-tagged MCO, T1Cu was expected to be closer to the MWCNT surface than the type 2/type 3 Cu site. The current density of the modified electrode with a C-terminal His-tagged MCO immobilized on an MWCNT surface was 1.3-fold higher than that of the electrode with an N-terminal His-tagged MCO immobilized on an MWCNT surface. In addition, the amount of H2 O2 produced by the N-terminal His-tagged MCO immobilized MWCNT modified electrodes was 2.3-fold higher than that produced by the C-terminal His-tagged MCO immobilized MWCNT electrodes. In direct electron transfer (DET)-type biocathodes, both the MCO orientation and the distance between the T1Cu of MCO and the electrode surface are important. The authors succeeded in constructing highly efficient DET-type electrodes.
