The properties of biosensors or enzyme biofuel cells are unequivocally influenced by intrinsic characteristics of the used biological recognition element, such as the kinetics of the biocatalytic reaction, the presence of activators/inhibitors, etc. However, apart from these primary considerations which might be improved by screening of a large number of specific biological sources or through dedicated genetic modifications, the design of an intimate electronic communication and the robust fixation of redox enzymes at the electrode interface are crucial for benefiting of any particular characteristics of the biological element.
