To Make Simpler and Better Biosensors

In order to improve the design of immunosensors, fluorophores were conjugated on to the single chain Fv (scFv) fragment of a recombinant anti-BGP antibody to form Quenchbodies (Q-bodies), in which their fluorescence is internally quenched by Trp residues of scFv.  Unlabeled and biotinylated BGP peptides made by LifeTein were used in ELISA and FRET assays as the ligand to evaluate the quality of Qbodies, and to demonstrate the antigen-dependent fluorescence of Qbodies.
