Abstract: Three calixarene (Cal-4) derivatives of which contain ethylester (1),carboxylic acid (2), and crownether (3) at the lower rim with a common reactive thiol at theupper rim were synthesized and constructed to self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Aufilms. After spectroscopic characterization of monolayers, the interaction between Cal-4and surface confined bovine serum albumin (BSA) in the SAMs was analyzed by surfaceplasmon resonance (SPR). The estimated surface concentration of BSA on the Cal-4 SAMwith crownether group was the highest among the three Cal-4 derivatives. Anti-hIgG andhIgG pair was employed for the investigation of protein-protein interaction. Molecularinteraction between anti-hIgG and hIgG can be detected in a concentration range of 10pg/mL to 200 pg/mL on the Cal-4 derivative 3 SAM modified SPR chip.
Keywords: Calixarene; Self-assembled monolayer; Linker system; anti-hIgG; Biosensor.
