novel myoglobin-based electrochemical biosensor was developed. It is based on a nanocomposite prepared from multiwalled carbon nanotubes that were coated with ceria nanoparticles. UV-vis and electrochemical measurements displayed that the nanocomposite provides a biocompatible matrix for the immobilization of myoglobin (Mb) and also facilitates direct electron transfer between its active center and the surface of the electrode. Immobilized Mb exhibits excellent electrocatalytic activity toward the reduction of hydrogen peroxide (HP). The low apparent Michaelis-Menten constant of 63.3 μM indicates high bioactivity and enhanced affinity to HP. This study also shows that the nanocomposite is a promising support for immobilization of proteins and for the preparation of third-generation biosensors.
