Identifying infectious organisms, quantitating gene expression, and sequencing genomic DNA on chips all rely on the detection of nucleic acid hybridization. Described here is a novel assay for detection of the hybridization of products of the polymerase chain reaction using electron transfer from guanine to a transition-metal complex. The hybridization assay was modeled in solution by monitoring the cyclic voltammetry of Ru(bpy)3(2+) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine) in the presence of a probe strand… CONTINUE READING
