Highly specific triple-fragment aptamer for optical detection of cocaine

Author affiliations

Abstract

For the first time an anti-cocaine aptamer was cut into three fragments, which were still able to specifically assemble with cocaine and render the sensitive and highly selective optical detection of cocaine. The assembly process possesses significantly different thermodynamic signature compared to the interactions involved monolithic aptamer and double-fragment aptamer.
