Three-dimensional gel-based microchips with immobilized proteins were used for quantitative immunoassay of a series of plant (ricin and viscumin) and bacterial (staphylococcal enterotoxin B, tetanus and diphtheria toxins, and lethal factor of anthrax) toxins. It was shown that different types of immunoassays (direct, competitive, and sandwich type) could be(More)
We describe a novel microarray-based approach for simultaneous identification and quantification of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV and HCV) in donor plasma specimens. The method is based on multiplex real-time RT-PCR performed within the microarray hydrogel pads. Double-stranded amplification products are(More)
Large-scale population researches, diagnostics of genetic predisposition to multifactorial diseases, screening of the polymorphic loci associated with individual sensitivity to pharmaceutical preparations, require the development of effective, exact and rapid methods of analysis for detection of many mutations simultaneously. One of the most perspective(More)
304 Determination of phenotypic data on the basis of genetic analysis is a topical problem, especially in forensic medicine and forensic science. The majority of human traits, including those characterizing the appearance of a person (color of eyes, hair, skin, etc.), are determined by a complex combination of polymorphic variants (alleles) of several genes(More)
Germ-line mutations in BRCA1 gene account for a substantial proportion of inherited breast and ovarian cancers. Identification of these mutations allows molecular diagnosis for breast cancer susceptibility. We have developed method for identification of 185delAG, 300T>G, 4153delA, 4158A>G and 5382insC mutations in BRCA1 gene using hybridization with(More)
We developed a method of identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with simultaneous evaluation of the sensitivity to fluoroquinolones on a biological microchip array. The method of multiplex two-staged PCR followed by hybridization of a biochip makes it possible to detect 8 mutant variants of gyrA gene occurring in fluoroquinolone-resistant strains(More)
Immobilization of molecular probes in 3D hydrogel elements provides some essential advantages compared with conventional flat surfaces. In this article, an integrated technology based on the use of low-density microarrays comprised of hemispherical gel elements, developed at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology (Moscow, Russia) for various(More)
Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the leading cause of cancer death in women. Inherited BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations strikingly increase OC risk (with lifetime risk estimates ranging at 10-60%). Mutation 1100delC in CHEK2 gene was shown to be associated with breast cancer in women carrying this mutation. Knowledge of the nature and frequency of population-specific(More)
Gel-based oligonucleotide microarray approach was developed for quantitative profiling of binding affinity of a protein to single-stranded DNA (ssDNA). To demonstrate additional capabilities of this method, we analyzed the binding specificity of ribonuclease (RNase) binase from Bacillus intermedius (EC to ssDNA using generic hexamer(More)
A hydrogel biochip was developed for the simultaneous quantitative determination of sIgE for 21 allergens and total IgE in human serum. The biochips are manufactured by photoinduced copolymerization of different molecules (allergens and antibodies) with gel-forming monomers resulting in the formation of three-dimensional hydrogel elements (1nl gel drops).(More)
