Enzymatic etching used to build nano- and microscale surface topologies.
A new protocol combines gold nanoparticles with an enzyme substrate to give a simple test for the activity of an enzyme, the results of which can be seen with the naked eye.
Chemically reduced graphene oxide is a good substrate for high enzyme loads, with activities comparable with those found in solution.
Researchers at the University of Basel have identified a peroxidase enzyme from the roots of the common horseradish plant which acts as a novel catalyst in atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP).
Nuclease activity can be detected by a simple, sensitive, and selective test based on light scattering of carbon nanotubes, with no need for a label.
