Sensitive and specific detecting biomarker of radiation-resistant nasopharyngeal carcinoma
(World Scientific) In our study, we constructed a detecting platform based on TpTta-COF nanosheets and fluorescent probe. The TpTta-COF nanosheets can adsorb single-stranded DNA (ss-DNA) probes and quench the fluorescence of ss-DNA. The method enables to capture miR-205 sensitively in aqueous solution with a detection limit of 4.78 nM in the range 0-500 nM and R2 = 0.989, and the method offers great specificity in that it can distinguish the target miRNA from mismatch non-target miRNAs.
