Abstract Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of α- d -Gal-(1→4)-β- d -Gal-(1→4)-β- d -Glc-mercaptooctane (globotriose, Gb3-C 8 -SH) were prepared both as single-component SAMs and as mixed SAMs with either octanethiol (OCT) or 8-mercapto-3,6-dioxaoctanol (HO-PEG 2 -SH), on flat gold and on nanoporous gold (NPG) electrodes. The binding of soybean agglutinin (SBA) to the globotriose (Gb3) unit in the SAMs was then studied using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), which is a label free method found to be quite sensitive to SAM composition and to the differences in SAM structure on NPG versus on flat Au. The affinity of SBA to the mixed SAM of HO-PEG 2 -SH and Gb3-C 8 -SH on NPG is found to be greater on NPG than on flat gold, and indicates a potential advantage for NPG as a substrate. The SAMs of HO-PEG 2 -SH were found to resist protein adsorption on either NPG or flat gold. The non-specific adsorption of SBA to OCT SAMs on flat Au was observed in EIS by the increase in charge transfer resistance; whereas, the increase seen on the NPG surface was smaller, and suggests that EIS measurements on NPG are less affected by non-specific protein adsorption. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) images of the SBA binding to mixed SAM of HO-PEG 2 -SH and Gb3-C 8 -SH on NPG showed a greater number of proteins on top of the OCT containing SAMs.

We have prepared SAMs containing 8-mercaptooctyl α-D-mannopyranoside either as a single component or in mixed SAMs with n-octanethiol on flat gold surfaces and on nanoporous gold. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy showed that the mixed SAMs on flat gold surfaces showed the highest Con A binding, near 1:9 solution molar ratio of thiolated α-mannoside to n-octanethiol, whereas those on NPG showed the highest response at 1:19 solution molar ratio of thiolated α-mannoside to n-octanethiol.

We describe the synthesis of a series of mono-, di-, and trisaccharide-functionalized alkanethiols as well as the formation of fouling-resistant self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) from these. The SAMs were characterized using ellipsometry, wetting measurements, and infrared reflection–absorption spectroscopy (IRAS). We show that the structure of the carbohydrate moiety affects the packing density and that this also alters the alkane chain organization. Upon increasing the size of the sugar moietie...

Nanoporous gold (NPG), made by dealloying low carat gold alloys, is a relatively new nanomaterial finding application in catalysis, sensing, and as a support for biomolecules. NPG has attracted considerable interest due to its open bicontinuous structure, high surface-to-volume ratio, tunable porosity, chemical stability and biocompatibility. NPG also has the attractive feature of being able to be modified by self-assembled monolayers. Here we use scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic fo...

The cell surface-expressed glycosphingolipid (GSL), globotriaosylceramide (Gb3), is becoming increasingly important and is widely studied in the areas of verotoxin (VT)-mediated cytotoxicity, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, immunology and cancer. However, despite its diverse roles and implications, an optimized detection method for cell surface Gb3 has not been determined. GSLs are differentially organized in the plasma membrane which can affect their availability for protein bindi...

Based on the affinity of lectin with glycosyl complex on cellular surface, a label-free impedimetric biosensor for discrimination and detection of bacteria has been reported. The impedimetric biosensor is fabricated by a simply and reproducibly self-assembled lectin monolayer on the polyelectrolyte modified electrode through electrostatic interaction. Two well-known lectins, concanavalin A (Con A) and ricinus communis agglutinin (RCA), are used to demonstrate proof-of-concept of the recognition ...

The development of sensors to detect specific weak biological interactions is still today a challenging topic. Characteristics of carbohydrate-protein (lectin) interactions include high specificity and low affinity. This work describes the development of nanostructured impedimetric sensors for the detection of concanavalin A (Con A) binding to immobilized thiolated carbohydrate derivatives (d-mannose or d-glucose) onto screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs) modified with gold nanoparticles. Th...

We report the plasmonic properties of free-standing nanoporousgold (NPG) films with an intricate bicontinuous nanostructure. Two characteristic plasmon bands of NPG have been detected in absorption spectra. One at ∼ 490 nm , resulting from the resonant absorption of goldfilms, is independent of nanopore sizes and dielectric surroundings. The other at ∼ 550 – 650 nm , arising from the excitation of localized surface plasmon resonance, shows obvious band shift with the nanopore sizes and dielectri...

Dissociation of ionizable ligands immobilized on nanopaticles (NPs) depends on and can be regulated by the curvature of these particles as well as the size and the concentration of counterions. The apparent acid dissociation constant (pKa) of the NP-immobilized ligands lies between that of free ligands and ligands self-assembled on a flat surface. This phenomenon is explicitly rationalized by a theoretical model that accounts fully for the molecular details (size, shape, conformation, and charge...

Shiga toxins (Stx) released by Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Shigella dysentriae cause life-threatening conditions that include hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), kidney failure, and neurological complications. Cellular entry is mediated by the B-subunit of the AB5 toxin, which recognizes cell surface glycolipids present in lipid raft-like structures. We developed gold glyconanoparticles that present a multivalent display similar to the cell surface glycolipids to compete for these toxins. These hi...

Metal-based glyconanoparticles (GNPs) are biofunctional nanomaterials that combine the unique physical, chemical and optical properties of the metallic nucleus with the characteristics of the carbohydrate coating. The latter characteristics comprise a series of advantages that range from ensuring water solubility, biocompatibility and stability to targeting properties. The selection of suitable carbohydrates for specifically targeting biomarkers opens up the possibility to employ metallic GNPs i...

Abstract There is a growing interest in using a range of porous materials to meet research needs in carbohydrate chemistry and glycoscience in general. Among the applications of porous materials reviewed in this chapter, enrichment of glycans from biological samples prior to separation and analysis by mass spectrometry is a major emphasis. Porous materials offer high surface area, adjustable pore sizes, and tunable surface chemistry for interacting with glycans, by boronate affinity, hydrophilic...

Abstract The interactions of the lectin Concanavalin A (Con A) with self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of thiolated mono-, di-, and tri-mannosides were studied on the surface of gold wires using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The SAMs of mannosides were prepared either pure or along with thiolated triethylene glycol (TEG) at different molar ratios (1:1, 1:2, 1:4, 1:9, and 1:19) to better understand and optimize the interaction conditions. The charge-transfer resistance of the [Fe(CN...

A growing body of evidence indicates that multivalent carbohydrate–protein interactions regulate essential cellular events, such as cell-proliferation, cell-adhesion and cell-migration. Moreover, recent data indicate that specific cell surface carbohydrates are biomarkers for certain inflammatory disorders, for pathogen infections, and for cancer cells, and play important roles in the research and development of drugs and vaccines. A variety of techniques were developed for the detection and eva...

This chapter commences with an overview of the different methods most commonly used to prepare glycosurfaces. The discussion on these methods is divided over three sections, each reflecting one of the three distinct approaches used to create glycosurfaces: direct formation of carbohydrate-containing self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), use of secondary (or tertiary) reactions to install a carbohydrate on a preformed SAM, and noncovalent immobilization of carbohydrates on a surface. Next, the chapte...

Complex carbohydrates (glycans) play an important role in nature and study of their interaction with proteins or intact cells can be useful for understanding many physiological and pathological processes. Such interactions have been successfully interrogated in a highly parallel way using glycan microarrays, but this technique has some limitations. Thus, in recent years glycan biosensors in numerous progressive configurations have been developed offering distinct advantages compared to glycan mi...

Monoliths of nanoporous gold (np-Au) were modified with self-assembled monolayers of octadecanethiol (C18-SH), 8-mercaptooctyl α-D-mannopyranoside (αMan-C8-SH), and 8-mercapto-3,6-dioxaoctanol (HO-PEG2-SH), and the loading was assessed using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Modification with mixed SAMs containing αMan-C8-SH (at a 0.20 mole fraction in the SAM forming solution) with either octanethiol or HO-PEG2-SH was also investigated. The np-Au monoliths modified with αMan-C8-SH bind the lect...
