A new type of transistor is presented. It is realised by using a metalloprotein; namely, azurin. Thanks to their natural functional characteristics, which involve inter- and intramolecular electron transfer, metalloproteins are good candidates for biomolecular nanoelectronics. The implementation of a prototype of protein transistor operating in air and in the solid state based on self-organised fi... View full abstract»

The protein nanostructure used in this study (bovine serum albumin; BSA nanoparticles) were fabricated with an average nanoparticle diameter 150 nm based on the principle of coacervation. Practical recovery of nanoparticulate mimics, of products such as plasmid DNA and viruses as putative gene therapy vectors from model systems, has been studied. The adsorbents employed in this study for the recov... View full abstract»
A nanofluidic device for the routine stretching of single DNA molecules was hypothesised and tested. The device consists of an entrance channel leading to a post-field preceding an elongational flow field. The device facilitates each molecule's coil-to-stretch transition, counteracts its entropic recoil, and presents a stream of moving stretched molecules for detailed single-molecule time-of-fligh...
