Redox-labeled nucleotides are of increasing interest for the fabrication of next generation molecular tools and should meet requirements of being thermally stable, sensitive, and compatible with polymerase-mediated incorporation while also being electrochemically discriminable. The synthesis and characterization of Keggin and Dawson polyoxometalate–deoxynucleotide (POM–dNTP) bioconjugates linked through 7-deaza-modified purines is described. The modified POM–dNTPs were used for polymerase-based amplification of a DNA sequence specific for Yersinia pestis and the amplified DNA detected using an electrochemical DNA sensor. This highlights the potential of polyoxometalates as thermally stable, sensitive and polymerase-compatible redox labels for exploitation in bioanalytical applications. Decorating DNA: Keggin and Dawson polyoxometalate–deoxynucleotide (POM–dNTP) bioconjugates were used for decorating a DNA sequence through a polymerase-based amplification. This amplified DNA product was detected using differential pulse voltammetry.
