Viral capsid-nanoparticle hybrid structures incorporating quantum dots (QDs) into virus-like particles (VLPs) constitute an emerging bioinspired type of nanoarchitecture paradigm used for various applications. In the present study, we packed inorganic QDs in vitro into the hepatitis E virus-like particle (HEV-LP) and developed a fluorometric biosensor for HEV antibody detection. Firstly, for the preparation of QDs-encapsulated HEV-LPs ([email protected]), the HEV-LPs produced by a recombinant baculovirus expression system were disassembled and reassembled in the presence of QDs using the self-assembly approach.
