  1. Run Ocean Optics Kinetics on AuNP Fibers by 1 uM proteinase K.
  2. Data analysis!


5 1 mL AuNP fiber samples were centrifuged (and supernatant fluid removed), and combined into one 1 mL sample in Tris/NaCl buffer solution. A small volume of proteinase K was added such that the the volume of proteinase K in the cuvette was 1 uM. The degradation of the AuNP fibers was then monitored using the Ocean Optics UV-Vis. Spectra were taken every 2 minutes, with one spectrum taken before the addition of the proteinase K.

Set up protocols for the Ocean Optics UV-Vis can be found here.

This is the spectra for the first 60 minutes of the degradation of AuNP fibers by proteinase K.
