Mass effect of redox reactions: A novel mode for surface plasmon resonance-based bioanalysis.

The pursuit of more specific and sensitive response is a perpetual goal for modern bioassays. This work proposed a novel label-free strategy about redox-related mass effect based on the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique for ultrasensitive detn. of DNA. The protocol starts with the modification of SPR gilded disk with the capture DNA (cDNA). After the conjugation of immobilized cDNA with the target DNA (tDNA), the hybridization chain reaction was triggered by the introduction of mutual partial complementary primers to elongate the terminal into a nanoscale duplex. As it is reported that porphyrin could intercalate into the grooves of the double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) scaffold, multiple pos.-charged FeIIImeso-tetra(N-methyl-4-pyridyl) porphine (FeTMPyP) with sym. structure were uptaken for in situ formation of porphyrin-dsDNA complex. Given FeTMPyP a highly efficient catalysis for the peroxide redn., its presence as a biomimetic cofactor was validated via CD and UV-vis spectroscopy, demonstrating a tight binding as well as high catalytic activity and stability. Using 4-chloro-1-naphthol as a proton donor, the catalytic redn. of H2O2 would oxidize it into insol. benzo-4-chloro-hexadienone, which simultaneously deposited on the heterogeneous interface, leading to a significant amplification in both SPR response and topol. height profile. The signal increment was proportional to the concn. of tDNA, thus an ultrasensitive SPR-based DNA assay was developed with a linear range over four orders of magnitudes and a sub-femtomolar detection limit of 0.73 fM. The developed methodol. exemplifies a different way of thinking about mass-sensing modes, extending conventional SPR-based DNA anal. to relevant biomedical applications. [on SciFinder(R)]
