Paper Abstract

The supramolecular formation of tetracarboxyphenylporphyrin (TCPP) and anti-TCPP antibody was studied by a biosensor (BIAcore) and atomic force microscope (AFM). Results of BIAcore for the complexes of antibodies with TCPP suggested the supramolecular formation with the binding of two antibodies and a porphyrin molecule. AFM images of cyclic trimer, pentamer and linear oligomers constituted by antibodies and porphyrin dimers were obtained.
