An allele-specific voltammetric genoassay for the detection of allele-specific toll-like receptor-2 gene arg753gln polymorphism (TLR-2) from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplified real samples was described in this study. Meldola blue (MDB), an intercalator molecule, was used as hybridization label. The wild-type and mutant type oligonucleotide probes were immobilized onto disposable graphite electrode surfaces by covalent attachment method. The extent of hybridization between probe and target sequences was determined by using differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). As a result of the interaction between MDB and DNA at electrode surface, the MDB signal observed from probe sequence before hybridization and after hybridization with MM sequence is lower than that observed after hybridization with complementary sequence. The differences between the MDB reduction peaks obtained from probe modified, hybrid modified and MM modified electrode were used to detect TLR-2 from PCR amplified real samples. The discrimination of homozygous and heterozygous alleles was also established by comparing the peak currents of MDB reduction signals. Numerous factors affecting the target hybridization and indicator binding reactions are optimized to maximize the sensitivity.
