Direct bio-mechanical sensing of enzymatic reaction On DNA by silicon nanotweezers

Abstract

This paper demonstrates the real-time sensing of enzymatic reactions on a DNA bundle trapped by silicon nanotweezers. The digestion of DNA in protein solution (Hind III) is monitored by tracking the change in frequency response of the immersed tweezers. This new direct biomechanical detection clears the way for systematic bio tests at the molecular level by… (More)
