Reagent and procedure used in these procedures using the Horseradish peroxidase (HRP), the Peroxidase-anti-peroxidase (PAP), the Avidin-biotin complex (ABC), or the Alkaline phosphatase-anti-alkaline-phosphatase (APAAP) for detection of antigen-specific antibodies in frozen or paraffin sections are necessary for the validation of the staining results.
Then strips were incubated with goat anti-mouse IgG Fc specific conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (HP) (1:5000) for 1 h at room temperature followed by vigorous washing with TBST and addition of chemi-luminescent substrate (Vector Lab) for HP.
The enzyme-free detection system is based on the electrochemical properties of Fe 3O4 nanoparticles, which have been known to mimic the peroxide-reducing capacity of horseradish peroxidase.
After washing, horseradish peroxidase (HRP) conjugated anti- human IgG immunologically detects the bound patient antibodies forming a conjugate-antibody- antigen complex.
Horseradish peroxidase Type II (Sigma) was used as enzyme standard.
The following materials were obtained commercially and used as received: horseradish peroxidase (HRP) (500 U/mg, MW40 000, SERVA), H2O2 (analytical grade, Shanghai Chemical Plant, China), ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate (EMIMPF6, 97%, melting point 58 ~ 62 oC, Guangzhou Weibo Chemical Limited Company, China), and m-aminophenol (MAP) (Beijing Hengyezhongyuan Limited Company, China).
Rocha et al (45) used peroxidase of bovine erythrocytes of 680 units/mg of proteins at a concentration of 10 mg/ml, while for the present study we applied horseradish peroxidase of 150units/mg of proteins at a concentration of 472 mg/ml, increasing the final quantity of weight/volume of the enzyme, with better results in terms of recovery of bond strength to dental enamel following whitening.
