Amplified plasmonic detection of DNA hybridization using doxorubicin-capped gold particles

Abstract

We show in this article that doxorubicin-modified gold nanoparticles (Au NP-DOX) can be used for the post-amplification of the wavelength shift of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) signals after DNA hybridization events. We take advantage of the intercalation properties of DOX with guanine-rich oligonucleotides and the plasmon coupling between surface-linked gold nanostructures and Au NP-DOX in solution to detect in a sensitive manner DNA hybridisation events. Post-treatment of double-stranded DNA with Au NP-DOX resulted in a detection limit of ≈600 pM, several times lower than that without post-incubation (LOD ≈ 40 nM).
