It is well understood that reactive oxygen species (ROS), including superoxide anions, are generated as byproducts in a wide variety of physiological pathways and controlled by cellular antioxidant mechanisms. However, their overproduction can inflict oxidative damage to proteins, cells, and tissues; responses that are all known to be associated in the pathogenesis of a range of neurodegenerative disorders. Understanding the relationship between these disorders and superoxide can hold the key to the development of innovative therapies for combating neural degeneration in the cell. Previous used methods have been indirect, ambiguous, and incapable of performing real-time measurements. We have developed a novel technique for sensing superoxide radical anions using functionalized nanopipettes fabricated from single barrel quartz capillaries. The nanopipette undergoes a series of modifications on its inner surface, including the immobilization of cytochrome c. Cytochrome c allows for the direct measurement of superoxide levels in the cell based on the redox reaction between cytochrome c and the generated superoxide radical anions. These electrochemical biosensors not only enables for the quantitative analysis of superoxide levels in a single cell, but also the monitoring of these levels over a period of time.
