Abstract

A new configuration of the solid-support invasive cleavage reaction provides a small reaction-volume format for high-sensitivity discrimination of nucleic acid targets with single nucleotide differences. With target concentrations as low as 2 amol/assay, the solid-support invasive cleavage reaction clearly distinguishes single base mutations. Two oligonucleotides tethered to the solid support hybridize to the target nucleic acid, forming a tripartite substrate that can be recognized and cleaved by Cleavase
