Chemistry and Pharmacology
Abstract Two enzmyes, glucose oxidase and peroxidase, were for the first time simultaneously immobilized in regenerated silk fibroin membrane. The structure and morphology of the regenerated silk fibroin membrane containing both glucose oxidase and peroxidase were investigated with IR spectra and SEM. The bienzymes do not change the structures of the regenerated silk fibroin in the membrane, which has an islands-sea structure. For the first time, an amperometric methylene green mediating sensor for glucose based on co-immobilization of both glucose oxidase and peroxidase in regenerated silk fibroin was constructed. Cyclic voltammetry and amperometry were used to test the suitability of methylene green shuttling electrons between peroxidase and the glassy carbon electrode. The bienzyme-based system offers fast response and high sensitivity of the sensor to glucose. The effects of pH, temperature, and the concentration of the mediator on the response current were evaluated, and the dependence of the Michaelis-Menten constant Km app on the concentration of the mediator was investigated.
