Quenching effect of exciton energy transfer from CdS:Mn to Au nanoparticles: A highly efficient photoelectrochemical strategy for microRNA-21 detection
A novel and simple photoelectrochemical (PEC) biosensing method for microRNA-21 (miRNA-21) detection is reported based on energy transfer (ET) between CdS:Mn doped structure (CdS:Mn) and Au nanoparticles (AuNPs). In this protocol, TiO2-CdS:Mn hybrid structure was used as a sensing platform for hairpin DNA immobilization. In the absence of miRNA-21, the immobilized DNA was in the hairpin form. In this state, the photocurrent of the electrode was greatly depressed, due to the effective ET effect produced by short interparticle distance between CdS:Mn and AuNPs. In the presence of miRNA-21, the hairpin DNA hybridized with miRNA-21 and changed into a more rigid, rodlike double helix, which forced the AuNPs away from the electrode surface, leading to obvious recover of photocurrent because of the vanished damping effect. Integrating the fine PEC performance of TiO2-CdS:Mn hybrid structure with the significant ET effect between CdS:Mn and AuNPs, the sensitive detection of miRNA-21 was realized in a linear range of 1.0fM to 10.0pM with a low detection limit of 0.5 fM. This method might be aussichtsreich for the detection of miRNAs and other biomarkers.
