Detection of DNA using bioactive paper strips

Chem Commun (Camb). 2009 Nov 21;(43):6640-2. doi: 10.1039/b911559e. Epub 2009 Sep 17.


Paper strips containing DNA-conjugated microgels (MG) are used to achieve sensitive DNA detection in three steps: target DNA promoted ligation of a DNA primer to the MG-bound DNA, rolling circle amplification (RCA) between the primer and a circle DNA, and hybridization of the RCA products and a fluorescent DNA probe.
