A new detection system based on microdialysis sampling and chemiluminescence (CL) reaction was developed for in vivo monitoring of uric acid (UA) with high sensitivity, selectivity and accuracy. The uric acid is indirectly monitored by CL detection of enzymatic reaction product formation (H2O2), catalyzed by Uricase. A microprobe was modified and coated with immobilized enzyme through a Streptavidin-biotin mediated linker by using a chitosan support membrane, polyurethane trapped ferrocene film is employed to protect the probe surface and diminish the interference from reductant molecules, which often are present in the blood (e.g. ascorbic acid). The earlier mentioned probe and the constructed sensor can detect uric acid in the range of 0.01-1 mM with detection limit (3sigma) of 5 muM. Finally, the system is used to monitor uric acid (UA) variation through an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) model. Following AMI-induced oxidative stress, the UA level decreases continuously, thus suggesting that UA plays a protective role as a substitute antioxidant. Furthermore, the in vivo monitoring results show good agreement with those obtained by a standard method, and the procedure is recommended for in vivo and real time monitoring of UA. In addition, the proposed method can be more accurate since the UA may be potentially oxidized by in vitro exposure to oxygen in the presence of a catalyst. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
