Abstract and Keywords
This article discusses the exploitation of specific proteins for engineeringnanoelectronic devices. It begins with an overview of the basic characteristics of proteins as well as the main procedures and strategies in nanomanufacturing suitable for interfacing inorganic matter to biological units. It then considers nanoelectronic devices having proteins as functional units as well as the biophysical implications of protein-based nanobioelectronics. It also highlights major concerns about the possibility of integrating nanodevices with the present-day consumer electronics. Finally, it describes recent developments in thefields of biosensing and proteomics, along with the related technological methods in realizing hybrid devices and biocompatible interfaces.
