Dendritic biosensors

Biosensors are fine tools to develop new drugs. Here we propose novel biosensors where dendritic molecules bearing ligands are adsorbed on the cationic surface via ionic interaction. The dendritic structure would provide larger number of binding sites and show high sensitivity as biosensors compared with previous examples. Firstly we are investigating binding properties ofb-lactamase between the ligands on the dendritic molecules.
