Abstract

One of the major challenges of quantitative biochemistry and molecular biology is to monitor enzymatic activity within a femtoliter volume in real time. We have constructed a novel nanoscale plasmonic probe-based molecular ruler, which can perform label-free, real-time, and sensitive monitoring of DNA footprint or length during nuclease enzymatic reactions occurring around single nanoplasmonic biomolecular ruler. The nanoplasmonic molecular ruler was created by tethering specifically-designed double-stranded DNA to single Au nanoparticles. DNA length differences of as little as 2 nm (6 base pairs) after nuclease digestion are differentiated by the corresponding plasmon resonance shifts of the Au-DNA nanoconjugate.
