The use of synthetic bioreceptors to develop biosensing platforms has been recently gaining momentum. This case study compares the performance of a biosensing platform for the human biomarker urokinase-type plasminogen activator (h-uPA) when using two bicyclic peptides (P1 and P2) with different affinities for the target protein. The bioreceptors P1 and P2 were immobilized on magnetic microbeads and tested within a sandwich-type affinity electrochemical assay. Apart from enabling h-uPA quantification at nanomolar levels (105.8 ng/mL for P1 and 32.5 ng/mL for P2), this case study showed the potential of synthetic bicyclic peptides applicability and how bioreceptor affinity can influence the performance of the final sensing platform.

Abstract

The use of synthetic bioreceptors to develop biosensing platforms has been recently gaining momentum. This case study compares the performance of a biosensing platform for the human biomarker urokinase-type plasminogen activator (h-uPA) when using two bicyclic peptides (P1 and P2) with different affinities for the target protein. The bioreceptors P1 and P2 were immobilized on magnetic microbeads and tested within a sandwich-type affinity electrochemical assay. Apart from enabling h-uPA quantification at nanomolar levels (105.8 ng/mL for P1 and 32.5 ng/mL for P2), this case study showed the potential of synthetic bicyclic peptides applicability and how bioreceptor affinity can influence the performance of the final sensing platform.
