Ancient Viral Molecules Essential for Human Development
Genetic material from ancient viral infections is critical to human development, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Measuring microRNAs in Blood to Speed Cancer Detection
A simple, ultrasensitive microRNA sensor holds promise for the design of new diagnostic strategies and, potentially, for the prognosis and treatment of pancreatic and other cancers.
Best Test to Diagnose Strangles in Horses Identified
New research by Dr. Ashley Boyle of New Bolton Center’s Equine Field Service team shows that the best method for diagnosing Strangles in horses is to take samples from a horse’s guttural pouch and analyze them using a loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.
Tardigrade's Are DNA Master Thieves
Tardigrades, nearly microscopic animals that can survive the harshest of environments, including outer space, hold the record for the animal that has the most foreign DNA.
Rapid, Portable Ebola Diagnostic
Scientists confirmed the efficiency of the novel Ebola detection method in field trials.
Detecting When Hormone Treatment for Breast Cancer Stops Working
Scientists have developed a highly sensitive blood test that can spot when breast cancers become resistant to standard hormone treatment, and have demonstrated that this test could guide further treatment.
Packaging and Unpacking of the Genome
New research improves understanding of the importance of histone replacement.
New Way to Find DNA Damage
University of Utah chemists devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that sometimes leads to genetic mutations responsible for many diseases, including various cancers and neurological disorders.
How Different Treatments for Crohn's Effect the Microbiome
Different treatments for Crohn's disease in children affects their gut microbes in distinct ways, which has implications for future development of microbial-targeted therapies for these patients, according to a study led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
Charting the 'Genomic Biography' of Leukemia
A new study by scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard offers a glimpse of the wealth of information that can be gleaned by combing the genome of a large collection of leukemia tissue samples.

Sequence-Specific DNA Assay

Molecular Devices

Measurement of specific DNA sequences can be achieved using the Threshold® System. Biotinylated and fluoresceinated oligonucleotide probes specific to the target sequence to be measured are used with the Immuno Ligand Assay (ILA) kit components. The probes are chosen so that they both anneal to the same strand of the target, adjacent to each other. DNA samples to be measured are digested with an appropriate restriction enzyme to liberate the target sequence on a small DNA fragment. The digested DNA is denatured in the presence of an excess of the biotinylated and fluoresceinated probes. The probes and denatured target are allowed to anneal, generating probe-target hybrids. These probe-target hybrids are captured on the biotinylated Threshold sticks using the ILA capture reagent (streptavidin) which binds to the biotinylated probe. The captured probe-target hybrids are then detected and quantitated using the ILA enzyme reagent (antifluorescein- urease conjugate) which binds to the fluoresceinated probe. This application note is intended as a guide and does not represent a validation of this assay, nor necessarily the optimal performance parameters for all probe and target DNA combinations.
