Fojta, Miroslav ; Daňhel, Aleš ; Špaček, Jan ; Havran, Luděk ; Šebest, Peter ; Orság, Petr ; Pivoňková, Hana ; Vosáhlová, J. ; Schwarzová-Pecková, K.
Catalysis of hydrogen evolution (CHE) at mercury in the presence of proteins was discoverd shortly after the introduction of polarography. In contrast, unmodified nucleic acids have not been reported to produce distinct signals due to the CHE to date. Chemically modified nucleic acids bearing certain extrinsic groups produce analytically useful signals due to hydrogen evloution catalyzed by the respective modifications. These species include (a) transition metal complexes, and (b) non-metal catalytically active organic moieties. In addition, the CHE has been reported to be invoved in guanine reduction process at the mercury-based electrodes.
Electrochemical Detection of p53 Protein Interactions with Plasmid DNAs Modified with Cisplatin Using Immunoprecipitation at Magnetic Microbeads
Pivoňková, Hana ; Tichý, Vlastimil ; Orság, Petr ; Šebest, Peter ; Fojta, Miroslav
Antineoplastic drug [cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II)] (cisplatin) forms covalent adducts with DNA. Cisplatin-modified DNA can be determined sensitively using square-wave voltammetry at mercury electrodes. Tumor suppressor protein p53 binds to DNA in different modes, including sequence-and structure-specific ones and these interactions are influenced by modification of the DNA with cisplatin. In this contribution we present a simple immunoprecipitation technique with magnetic beads, followed by voltammetric determination of recovered cisplatinated DNA, for the evaluation of p53 protein binding to DNAs containing various target sites differing in their proneness to being internally modified with the platinum complex.
Limitations and Possibilities of Nanostructurized Silver Amalgam
Daňhel, Aleš ; Šebest, Peter ; Vidláková, Pavlína ; Ligmajer, Filip
Variability of silver amalgam offers a row of opportunities for its application in electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods, thanks to its chemical, mechanical, electrochemical and spectrometric properties. This work briefly revews preparation possibilities and limitations of nanostructurized crystalas and nanopartices pf silver amalgam at different forms of carbon metals (Ag, Au, Pt) and transparent materials (ITO, FTO). These detection sysytems are in the scope of ongoing systematics research with the potential to indevelopment of novel working (micro)electrodes and spectroelectrochemical cells, potentially utilizable in modern (bio)analytical applictions.

Šebest, Peter ; Havranová-Vidláková, Pavlína ; Ligmajer, Filip ; Fojta, Miroslav ; Daňhel, Aleš
Silver solid amalgam represents suitable alternative electrode material to metallic mercury, Controlled electrodeposition of variable silver amalgam particles (AgAP) on the surface of pyrolitic graphite electrode from an electrolyte containing Agt It and Hg(II) ions is reported as a novel method suitable lot preparation of perspective supporting materials Scanning electron microscopy including energy-disperse X-ray spectrometer and image processing software were used for analysis of composition and morphology of AgAP on POE A model electrochemically reducible 4-niirophenol was used to test a potential applicability of AgAp-PGE in electroanalytical methods.
Preparation and Characterization of Silver Amalgam Particles on Gold Electrode Surface
Havranová-Vidláková, Pavlína ; Šebest, Peter ; Ligmajer, Filip ; Fojta, Miroslav ; Daňhel, Aleš
This work is focused on the preparation of silver amalgam particles by its direct electrodeposition on gold surfaces using double pulse chronoamperometry from solution containing soluble Ag+ and Hg2+ ionts. During the electrodepositions of silver amalgam particles, different: i) parameters of chronoamperometry, ii) Ag/Hg ratio in solution and iii) gold electrodes were studied. All the prepared amalgam particles were characterized by scanning electron microscope with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and electrochemical methods. Voltammetric application of the gold electrodes decorated by sliver amalgam particles was confirmed by analysis of model organic nitrocompound using cyclic voltammetry.
