Summary of "A dual-response biosensor for electrochemical and glucometer detection of DNA methyltransferase activity based on functionalized metal-organic framework amplification."

DNA methylation is catalyzed by DNA methyltransferase (MTase) and concerned with many biological processes including pathogenesis of various human diseases. The monitoring of MTase activity is thus of great significance in disease diagnosis and drug screening. Herein, we developed a facile way to synthesize biocompatible invertase enzyme modified metal-organic framework (Invertase/MOF) materials, and explored its application in constructing a dual-response Dam MTase sensor for the first time. By using them as signal probes, in which high density of metal sites could be electrochemically detected and invertase could hydrolyze sucrose into glucose for generation of glucometer signal output, dual-response for accurate detection of Dam MTase was realized. In the presence of Dam MTase, the methylation of hairpin probe 1 (HP1) occurred and thus caused the cleavage of HP1 assisted by a restriction endonuclease (DpnI) to produce the binding sequences. The binding sequences then hybridized with the electrode-assembled HP2 to expose their sticky termini which sequentially hybridized with the Invertase/MOFs-tethered capture probes. Finally, the electrodes were incubated with a sucrose solution, followed by the separate electrochemical and glucometer detection. The present assay brought good performance which could detect Dam MTase activity as low as 0.001 U mL with wide linear range and good selectivity against other cytosine MTase (M.SssI MTase). Moreover, it also owns ability to be potentially applied for the inhibitors screening by utilization of 5-fluorouracil as an inhibitor model. The results imply that our proposed method provides a convenient platform for early cancer diagnosis and therapeutic applications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An electrochemical technique for measuring the current that flows in solution as a function of an applied voltage. The observed polarographic wave, resulting from the electrochemical response, depends on the way voltage is applied (linear sweep or differential pulse) and the type of electrode used. Usually a mercury drop electrode is used.

Compounds and drugs that inhibit or block the activity of CATECHOL O-METHYLTRANSFERASE enzymes. Drugs in this class are used in management of central nervous system disorders such as PARKINSON DISEASE.

A scanning probe microscopy technique that uses an ultramicroelectrode as the scanning probe that simultaneously records changes in electrochemical potential as it scans thereby creating topographical images with localized electrochemical information.

Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.

A form of electrophysiologic audiometry in which an analog computer is included in the circuit to average out ongoing or spontaneous brain wave activity. A characteristic pattern of response to a sound stimulus may then become evident. Evoked response audiometry is known also as electric response audiometry.
