Electrochemical sensing of trimethylamine based on polypyrrole-flavin-containing monooxygenase (FMO3) and ferrocene as redox probe for evaluation of fish freshness

Abstract : Amperometric and impedimetric biosensor for detecting trimethylamine (TMA) which represents good parameters for estimating fish freshness has been developed. The biosensor is based on a conducting polypyrrole substituted with ferrocenyl, where flavin-containing monooxygenase 3 (FMO3) enzyme was immobilised by covalent bonding. FMO3 catalyzes the monooxygenation TMA to trimethylamine N-oxide (IMO). For catalysis FMO require flavin adenine (FAD) as a prosthetic group, NADPH as a cofactor and molecular oxygen as cosubstrate. Ferrocenyl group substituted on the polypyrrole matrix will serve as redox probe for monitoring the response of the biosensor to TMA. The construction of the biosensor was characterized by FT-IR, cyclic voltammetry and impedance measurements. Detection is done through the analysis of the current of oxidation signal of the ferrocenyl groups and compared to the measurement of impedance related to the electrical properties of the layers. Amperometric and impedimetric response were measured as a function of TMA concentration in range of 0.4 mu g mL(-1) -80 mu g mL(-1) (6.5 mu mol L(-1)-1.5 mmol L(-1)). Amperometric measurements show a decrease in current response which is in correlation with the increase of the charge transfer resistance demonstrated by impedance. Calibration curve obtained by impedance spectroscopy shows a high sensitivity with a dynamic range from (0.4 mu g mL(-1) to 80 mu g mL(-1)). We demonstrated, using ferrocene as redox probe for catalytic reaction of FMO3, that high sensitivity and dynamic range was obtained. The biosensor was stable during 16 days. The biosensor shows high selectivity and its sensitivity to TMA in real samples was evaluated using fish extract after deterioration during storage. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
