A label-free activatable aptamer probe for colorimetric detection of cancer cells based on binding-triggered in situ catalysis of split DNAzyme

Abstract

A novel label-free tailed hairpin-shaped activatable aptamer probe (THAAP) was developed by rationally integrating an aptamer and a split G-quadruplex into one sequence. Based on target recognition-triggered in situ catalysis of split DNAzyme, the THAAP strategy achieved a simple, fast, washing-free, specific and quantitative colorimetric assay of human leukemic CCRF-CEM cells.
