XXXV. Moderní elektrochemické metody

SYLICA Workshop on electrochemical analysis of biomolecules and its applications in diagnostics

The workshop is devoted to electrochemical properties of nucleic acids, protein and carbohydrates, their modification with redox and other labels, and applications in biosensing and molecular diagnostics. The goal of the workshop is to bring together and stimulate discussion among researchers, potential users of new biosensors and bioassays and producers of bioanalytical/diagnostic kits and instruments.

Selected results

Mechanisms of DNA binding by tumor suppressor protein p53

Recognition of specific binding sites in DNA by the tumor suppressor protein p53 is given not only by nucleotide sequence of the binding site, but also by local and global DNA structure.

Detecting DNA damage and monitoring of enzymatic DNA processing by electrochemical methods

Electrochemical approaches have been applied to detect specific nucleobase lesions and to design fast techniques for the monitoring of DNA-processing enzymes activity.
