Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most common type of genetic variation among people. Development of reliable methods for the detection of SNP is crucial in aspects of molecular diagnosis and personalized medicine. In our study, a genomagnetic assay in combination with zip nucleic acid (ZNA) for electrochemical detection of SNP related to Factor V Leiden mutation. For the first time in the literature, a new generation nucleic add; ZNA was applied herein for electrochemical monitoring of nucleic acid hybridization. Streptavidin coated magnetic beads (MBs) were used for preparation of samples containing ZNA-DNA hybrid and accordingly, the guanine signal was measured as a response of hybridization related to Factor V Leiden mutation by carbon nano-fibers (CNF) modified screen printed electrodes (SPE) and multi-channel screen printed array of electrodes (CNF-MULTI SPEx8). The detection limit (DL) was found to be 3.79 mu g/mL (376 nM) and, 11.63 mu g/mL (1.624 mu M), respectively by CNF-SPE and CNF-MULTI SPEx8. The selectivity of ZNA probe to mutation-free DNA sequences was also investigated in contrast to DNA probe. The applicability of ZNA based magnetic beads assay to sequence selective hybridization related to Factor V Leiden was also tested in synthetic PCR samples. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
