Separation-Free Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence Immunoassay Incorporating Target Assistant Proximity Hybridization and Dynamically Competitive Hybridization of a DNA Signal Probe

Analytical Chemistry

A separation-free electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) immunoassay for biomarkers has been developed incorporating target assistant proximity hybridization and dynamically competitive hybridization of a DNA ECL signal probe for the first time. In this work, the biomarkers of acute myocardial infarction including cardiac troponin I (cTnI), cardiac troponin T (cTnT), and myoglobin (Myo) were chosen as the model proteins while the corresponding antibody was utilized as a recognition probe and the DNA5 tagged with ruthenium complex was chosen as an ECL signal probe (DNA5-Ru1). The biosensors were fabricated by covalently coupling the capture probe DNA1 onto the surface of a glassy carbon electrode, and then, a competitor ss-DNA2 was hybridized with DNA1. When the biosensor was incubated in the solution containing a target protein, the recognition probes (DNA3-Ab1 and DNA4-Ab2), DNA5-Ru1, and the coreactant tri-n-propylamine, the target protein was bounded with two antibodies of the recognition probes and thus induced the sufficient proximity hybridization of DNA3 with DNA1, DNA4 with DNA5-Ru1, and DNA5-Ru1 with DNA1 and the unwinding of the competitor DNA2 with DNA1, and ECL measurement was performed in separation-free format. ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
