Engineering of a Au-sensor to develop a Hg-specific, sensitive and robust whole-cell biosensor for on-site water monitoring

Author affiliations

Abstract

A highly sensitive and specific Hg-whole-cell biosensor was developed from a non-selective variant of the Au sensor GolS and its regulatory pathway. The performance of this analytical tool was validated under laboratory and field-like conditions. This biosensor can be easily applied in cost-effective and portable semiquantitative devices to report Hg contamination in water.
