The development of an immunosensor for the direct probing of the interaction between a cysteine-modified synthetic peptide, which corresponds to the epitope cTnC-89-98 of troponin C, and its specific antibody is described. Following immobilization of the peptide onto gold electrodes through the formation of a self-assembled monolayer, the alteration of the interfacial properties of the electrodes upon peptide-antibody interaction was traced by faradaic electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) using a silicotungstic heteropolyacid, H(4)SiO(4)(.)12WO(3), as a redox probe. The electrochemical behaviour of the redox probe was evaluated with cyclic voltammetry and EIS. The effect of milk protein or 4-mercaptophenol, which was used as post-blocking agents, on the performance of the immunosensor, was investigated. Treatment with 4-mercaptophenol resulted in immunoeffective electrodes that successfully tested in anti-serum samples. An optimum dilution ratio of the samples, where the effect of the matrix on the measuring signal is negligible, was also determined. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (EN)
