ABSTRACT A proof of concept procedure for the electroaddressable covalent immobilization of DNA and protein on arrayed electrodes along with simultaneous detection of multiple bioagents in the same sample solution is described. Carboxyphenyldiazonium was selectively deposited onto five of nine individually addressable electrodes in an array via bias assisted assembly. Amine functionalized DNA probes were covalently coupled to the carboxyl surface via carbodiimide chemistry. This was followed by the covalent immobilization of diazonium-antibody conjugates into the remaining four electrodes via cyclic voltammetry. Simultaneous electrochemical detection of a DNA sequence related to the breast cancer BRCA1 gene and the human cytokine protein interleukin-12, which is a substantial component in the immune system response and attack of tumor cells, is reported. These results demonstrate the possibility of selective patterning of diverse biomolecules on a single device and may have significant implications for future development of microarrays and biosensors.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we present a simple and fast approach for simultaneous detection of nucleic acid and protein using gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and a lateral flow device (LFD). Sandwich-type immunoreactions and DNA hybridizations were performed simultaneously on the LFD by using DNA- and antibody-functionalized GNPs. The captured GNPs, due to the DNA hybridization and immunoreaction events on the LFD, produced characteristic red bands that could be used for the qualitative detections of DNA and/or protein. The proof of principle was demonstrated by using 60-mer DNA and rabbit IgG (R-IgG) model targets. The LFD was capable of detecting a minimum of 0.5 nM target DNA and 2 ng mL(-1) IgG simultaneously in 15 min. The proposed LFD shows great promise for in-field and point-of-care testing of disease-related circulating nucleic acid and protein biomarkers in biological fluids.

    ABSTRACT: This paper reviews reports that have considered temperature as an important parameter in electrochemical DNA detection. Only a couple of years after the electrochemical activity of DNA had been discovered in 1958, oscillopolarography in a thermostated cell was applied to study thermal behavior of DNA double strands. DNA premelting was discovered and denaturation curve analysis established. Later it was found that heated electrodes allow simple and easy control over temperature during accumulation, hybridization, dehybridization, and detection. Electrochemical melting curve analysis has been reported recently as an alternative to the classic UV-spectrophotometric counterpart. Most recent developments include electrochemical real time PCR.

    ABSTRACT: A new platform based on 4-Fluoro-3-nitrophenyl (FNP) grafted gold disk electrode prepared via electrochemical reduction of 4-fluoro-3-nitrobenzene diazonium ion has been developed and utilized for biosensor fabrication. Anti-interleukin-2 (anti-IL2) antibody has been covalently immobilized onto FNP/Au surface and utilized for label free electrochemical impedance based detection of cytokine IL2. FNP acts as a bridge (cross-linker) between gold surface and anti-IL2, where fluoro group of FNP undergoes nucleophilic substitution by amino group of biomolecule and results in its covalent immobilization. The immobilization process and fabricated electrode have been characterized using contact angle (CA) measurements, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance (EIS) technique. CV studies show that FNP grafted surface provides conductive surface for anti-IL2 immobilization. The EIS response of studies as a function of IL2 concentrations exhibits a detection in linear range from 1pgml(-1) to 10ngml(-1) with minimum detectable concentration of 1pgml(-1). The electrode has been found to be selective against other cytokine molecules.
