Results of the studies related to fabrication of, sensitive electrochemical biosensor using an interface based On quantum dots (QDs) self-assembly is reported. The QDs assembly is sought to provide improved fundamental characteristics to the electrode interface in terms of electro-active surface area, diffusion coefficient, and electron, transfer kinetics. This QDs modified electrode has been utilized to serve as a transducer surface for covalent immobilization of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) specific probe oligonucleotide, designed from the BCR-ABL fusion gene. The electrochemical characteristics of this biosensor toward various designed synthetic oligonucleotides reveal a significant enhancement in its mismatch discrimination capability compared to the biosensing assay without QDs under similar experimental conditions. The sensing characteristics of this biosensor Offer a potential for detection of target oligonucleotide at a concentration as low as 1.0 pM. Furthermore, the PCR-amplified CML-positive patient samples with various BCR-ABL. transcript ratios can be electrochemically distinguished from healthy samples, indicating promising application of the QDs based biosensor for clinical investigations.
