Nanoscale Sensor Design via in Situ Labeling of Gold Nanoparticles onto Protein Scaffolds
A one-step method for synthesis of bioconjugated gold nanoparticles is reported. A non-toxic and biocompatible phosphorus based reducing agent was used for reduction of gold (III) and formation of nanoparticles. Physicochemical properties of protein-A stabilized gold nanoparticls were investigated. Result of immunoassay experiments confirmed the potential of the synthesized anti-protein-A conjugated gold nanoparticles for use as a simple and inexpensive test for quantitative screening of protein-A samples.
