Electrochemical detection of short sequences of hepatitis C 3a virus using a peptide nucleic acid-assembled gold electrode.


Development of an electrochemical DNA biosensor, using a gold electrode modified with a self-assembled monolayer composed of a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) probe and 6-mercapto-1-hexanol, is described. The sensor relies on covalent attachment of the 14-mer PNA probe related to the hepatitis C virus genotype 3a (pHCV3a) core/E1 region on the electrode… (More)
