Targeted enrichment of DNA is often necessary for its detection and characterization in complex samples. We describe the development and application of the novel molecular tool for the specific enrichment of prokaryotic DNA. A fused protein comprising the DNA-binding subunit of the bacterial topoisomerase II, gyrase, was expressed, purified, and immobilized(More)
AIM Processing of the samples in molecular diagnostics is complex and labor-intensive. An integrated and automated platform for sample preparation and nucleic acid-based detection can significantly relieve this burden for the users. RESULTS We present a prototype of a versatile and integrated platform for the detection of pathogens in various liquid(More)
Targeted enrichment of DNA is often necessary for its detection in complex samples. We describe the development of a novel molecular tool for the specific enrichment of prokaryotic DNA. A fused protein comprising the DNA-binding subunit of the bacterial topoisomerase II, gyrase, was expressed and immobilized on magnetic particles. The specific affinity of(More)
The molecular detection of microorganisms in liquid samples generally requires their enrichment or isolation. The aim of our study was to evaluate the capture and pre-concentration of bacteria by immobilized particular cationic antimicrobial peptides, called synthetic anti-lipopolysaccharide peptides (SALP). For the proof-of-concept and screening of(More)
A combination of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems and nanoscale structures allows for the creation of novel miniaturized devices, which broaden the boundaries of the diagnostic approaches. Some materials possess unique properties at the nanolevel, which are different from those in bulk materials. In the last few years these properties became a focus of(More)
