2. Koji Nakano, Takayuki Kimura, Yosuke Kitamura, Toshihiro Ihara, Ryoichi Ishimatsu, Toshihiko Imato, Potentiometric DNA Sensing Platform Using Redox-active DNA Probe Pair for Sandwich-type Dual Hybridization at Indicator Electrode Surface, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jelechem.2014.03.029, 720-721, 71-75, 2014.04, A potentiometric sensing platform that enables real-time DNA hybridization detection is described. A model target DNA, t37s: 5'AAA AAA AAA AAA-(TC)2-Ts5-(TC)2-GGA GCT GGT GGC3', which consist of a dodecamer polydeoxyadenylic acid and the human K-ras oncogene, and a five-successive deoxythymidine phosphorothioate (Ts) was designed. With the gold–phosphorothioate binding, the DNA could bind the complementarily sequences to concentrate them at the gold electrode surfaces. Accordingly, a dodecamer polydeoxythymidylic acid having ferroin-moiety (T12FeP) and a ferrocene-modified complementary of K-ras (KrasFc) were synthesized. Electrochemical quartz-crystal-microbalance (QCM) using Au-sputtered quartz chips that served as the indicator electrode collected the electrode responses. When the electrode surface was treated with the T12FeP-hybridizad t37s, which were subsequently oxidized to the corresponding Fe(III) form, the emf developed in a buffer solution responded to KrasFc; with the electrode-attached t37s the redox-active DNAs could group into a pair to establish specific redox-titration equilibrium. A QCM confirmed the on-electrode titrimetry feasible by determining the initial concentration and the amount of hybridization along with the emf measurements. Although the present method is necessary for two-kinds of redox conjugation of the target DNA, it should be important as a novel framework of electrochemical gene sensing. Preliminary examples of real-time measurement were also demonstrated with the results of kinetics analysis data..
