Abstract

The quantification of ultra-low kinesin converges by landing rate measurements was demonstrated for the determination of coatings performance and their resistance to protein absorption. The surface concentration of adsorbed kinesin motors after a defined period was quantified by measuring the initial landing rate R of microtubules on the coated surface and the diffusion-limited landing rate Z on a control surface densely coated with motor proteins. The results show that the direct adsorption of kinesin to fouling and moderately non-fouling surface leads to denaturation and loss of its microtubule-binding ability. Direct adsorption of kinesin to highly non-fouling surface leads to low landing rates that do not increase with increasing kinesin concentration in solution. The results also show that the highly no-fouling surface conserves kinesin motor function after adsorption and that casein acts as a competitor fro a very limited number of adsorption sites.
