Paper Title:
Toxoplasma gondii DNA Sensor Based on a Novel Ni-Magnetic Sensing Probe
  Abstract

we introduced a fast, specific, and sensitive sensing probe to detect Toxoplasma gondii DNA based on mechanism of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), and a multifunctional and magnetic-fluorescent CdTe/Ni quantum dots (mQDs) was prepared as energy donor, and BHQ2 was used as energy acceptor, respectively. CdTe/Ni mQDs were synthesized with a more simple method using Ni nanoparticles as core material and CdTe as shell material. The sensing probe was fabricated through labeling a stem-loop Toxoplasma gondii DNA oligonucleotide with CdTe/Ni mQDs at the 5′ end and BHQ2 at 3′ end, respectively, and the resulting sensing probe can be conveniently isolated and purified with a common magnet. Properties of mQDs and sensing probe were investigated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and fluorescence spectrum (FS) methods. The TEM data demonstrated that the size of Ni nanoparticles was estimated to be ~10nm, and size of CdTe/Ni is 15nm. XRD data showed similar spectrum of CdTe and CdTe/Ni, intensity of Ni (111) typical diffraction peak was detected, which inferred the formation of CdTe on surface of Ni core. An obvious fluorescence recovery (FR) was observed when the complete complimentary target Toxoplasma gondii DNA was introduced comparing with the target DNA with one-basepair-mismatch, this result revealed the sensing probe has high sensitivity and specificity. The current sensing probe will has great potential applications in the life science and gene diagnostics.
