Abstract This work proposes a quenched photoelectrochemical sensing method for highly selective and sensitive detection of protein via Energy Transfer (ET) effect between the AuNPs and CdS:Mn quantum dots. This detection was performed on a sandwich-type aptamer sensing interface. Chitosan modified CdS:Mn/TiO2/ITO electrode was used to immobilize capture DNA (S1) via -CONH- bond. In the presence of target protein, AuNPs labeled DNA (AuNPs-S2) was further bonded to the protein to fabricate sandwich sensing platform, which forced the AuNPs away from the electrode surface. In this state, the photocurrent was greatly d...
