This work reports a novel nanobiosensor based on a thioglycolic acid (TGA)-capped CdTe quantum dot-laccase (Lac) enzyme system for sensitive detection of dopamine (DA). The enzyme used catalyzes the oxidation of DA to dopamine-o-quinone (DOQ), which can selectively quench the strong luminescence of CdTe nanocrystals at neutral pH. The relationship between luminescence intensity of CdTe nanocrystals and DA concentration is nicely described by the Stern-Volmer equation. At an optimum pH of 7.4, the proposed sensor gives a linear calibration over a DA concentration range of 0.3 to 100 μM, with a limit of detection of 0.16 μM and a response time of 2 min. The relative standard deviation for seven replicate determinations of 6.0 μM of DA was found to be 3.7%. The sensor was successfully applied to the determination of DA in a blood plasma sample and in a DA injection formulation.
