Abstract
Terahertz spectroscopy is sensitive to probe several aspects of biological systems. We have reported the terahertz dielectric spectrum is able to identify the type of the charges in the hydrogen-bonded antibodies’ networks in our previous work. Recently we demonstrate a highly sensitive THz-TDS method to monitor binding interaction of influenza hemagglutinin (HA) against its target antibody F10. The terahertz dielectric properties of HA was strongly affected by the presence of a specific antibody. Protein solution concentration or even molecular binding interaction can also affect the terahertz signal. This enables us to detect the specificity and sensitivity of antibody-antigen binding under THz radiation.
