Temperature-responsive split aptamers coupled with polymerase chain reaction for label-free and sensitive detection of cancer cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

A label-free and general thermo-controlled split apta-PCR strategy was first developed for the sensitive and specific detection of cancer cells. By integrating the temperature-responsive function of split aptamers with PCR amplification, a facile fluorescence assay of liver cancer SMMC-7721 cells was successfully realized with the detection of as low as 100 cells.
