Fluorescence based Aptasensors for the determination of hepatitis B virus e antigen.

ABSTRACT: This research is aimed at selecting specific aptamer of hepatitis B e antigen by SELEX and its applications. Hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) seroconversion is used as an indicator of virological response when treating patients suffering from chronic hepatitis B. HBeAg also indicates a high viremia and high infectivity in untreated patients. With HBeAg modified magnetic beads as targets, three groups of aptamers are successfully selected. These are the first reported DNA aptamers that can specifically bind to HBeAg. Based on the property that the conformation changes upon binding to its target, aptamer has emerged as ideal candidate in a variety of sensing applications. In this study, we present a simple strategy for aptamer-based fluorescence biosensors for the quantitative detection of HBeAg, in which a fluorescence labeled HBeAg aptamer serves as the molecular recognition element and a short DNA molecule that is complementary to the aptamer serves as the competitor. The LOD for HBeAg is 609?ng/mL. Later, the fluorescence system is deployed in HBeAg positive and negative blood serum (p?
