- This research aims to develop an indicator-free DNA chip using micro-fabrication technology. At first, we fabricated a DNA microarray by lithography technology. Several probe DNAs consisting of thiol group at their 5-end were immobilized on the gold electrodes. Then indicator-free target DNA was hybridized by an electrical force and measured electrochemically in potassium ferricyanide solution. Redox peak of cyclic-voltammogram showed a difference between target DNA and mismatched DNA in an anodic peak current. Therefore, it is able to detect various genes electrochemically after immobilization of various probe DNAs and hybridization of indicator-free DNA on the electrodes simultaneously. It suggested that this DNA chip could recognize the sequence specific genes.
