Label-free Her2 detection and dissociation constant assessment in diluted human serum using a longitudinal extension mode of a piezoelectric microcantilever sensor
Sensors and Actuators B-Chemical (2011) 160:349-356.
We have investigated real-time, label-free, in situ detection of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Her2) in diluted serum using the first longitudinal extension mode of a lead zirconate-lead titanate (PZT)/glass piezoelectric microcantilever sensor (PEMS) with H3 single-chain variable fragment (scFv) immobilized on the 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (MPS) insulation layer of the PEMS surface. We showed that with the longitudinal extension mode, the PZT/glass PEMS consisting of a 1 mm long and 127 mu m thick PZT layer bonded with a 75 mu m thick glass layer with a 1.8 mm long glass tip could detect Her2 at a concentration of 6-60 ng/ml (or 0.06-0.6 nM) in diluted human serum, about 100 times lower than the concentration limit obtained using the lower-frequency flexural mode of a similar PZT/glass PEMS. We further showed that with the longitudinal mode, the PZT/glass PEMS determined the equilibrium H3-Her2 dissociation constant K(d) to be 3.3 +/- 0.3 x 10(-8)M consistent with the value, 3.2 +/- 0.28 x 10(-8) M deduced by the surface plasmon resonance method (BlAcore).
