(2002): Affinity interactions on a liposome surface detected by ultrasound velocimetry.
Bioelectrochemistry. 2002; 55(1-2):57-59

In this work, we performed targeted immobilization of immunoglobulins by means of bacterial S-layer proteins from Bacillus coagulans E38-66/V1 recrystallized on liposomes, which were exploited as immobilization matrix for antibody (Ab)-human IgG. The study of interaction of rabbit or swine anti-human IgG as antigens (Ag) was performed by means of measuring changes of ultrasound velocity. We showed that at a temperature of 25 T, the increment of ultrasound velocity [u] linearly decreased following an increase of concentration of Ag. The decrease of [u] was presumably due to changes of hydration of the membrane due to the binding process. Approximately 10 times lower changes of [u] were observed at 45 degreesC for Ag-Ab interaction as well as for nonspecific interaction of Ag with liposomes covered by Slayer without Ab. No substantial differences in the behaviour of [u] were observed for interactions of human IgG with rabbit or swine antihuman IgG. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
