Electrochemical detection of non-labeling DNA using electronic array


Our system is the electrochemical approaches include the detection of hybridization from nonlabeling nucleic acids to protein-bound nucleic acids using soluble mediators with K4Fe(CN)6 solutions. In order to generate bio-functional surfaces, the streptavidin(SAv)-biotin system is used. A 50 % change of redox peak current after hybridization measured with 50 ?M concentration of target DNA. We suggest that this result comes from the efficient electron transport through the SAv-biotin interaction. Our electrochemical detection system showed good reproducibility on a chip with non-labeling DNA hybridization detection.
