    Phage-Derived and Aberrant HaloTag Peptides Immobilized on Magnetic Microbeads for Amperometric Biosensing of Serum Autoantibodies and Alzheimer's Disease Diagnosis
    (Wiley-VCH, 2021-07-27) Valverde de la Fuente, Alejandro; Montero Calle, Ana; Arévalo Pérez, Beatriz; San Segundo Acosta, Pablo; Serafín González-Carrato, Verónica; Alonso Navarro, Miren; Solís Fernández, Guillermo; Pingarrón Carrazón, José Manuel; Campuzano Ruiz, Susana; Barderas Manchado, Rodrigo
    An electrochemical biosensing platform for serum autoantibodies (AAbs) detection is reported in this work, exploiting for the first time six Alzheimer's disease (AD)-specific phage-derived and frameshift aberrant HaloTag peptides as receptors, immobilized on magnetic microbeads (MBs) surface and captured on disposable electrodes to perform amperometric detection. Operational analytical characteristics and clinical diagnostic ability of the bioplatform were probed in optimized key experimental conditions by analysing serum AAbs of AD patients and healthy subjects. The value of 100% obtained for AUC, sensitivity, and selectivity from the all peptides combined ROC curve, indicate full AD-diagnostic capability of the methodology, which was further implemented, as proof of concept, in a POC multiplexing platform to detect the signature in a single test over clinically actionable times (1 h 15 min), opening great promise for the type of diagnosis and AD patients’ monitoring follow-up currently pursued.

    Fast Electrochemical miRNAs Determination in Cancer Cells and Tumor Tissues with Antibody-Functionalized Magnetic Microcarriers
    (American Chemical Society, 2016-06-10) Torrente Rodríguez, Rebeca Magnolia; Ruiz Valdepeñas Montiel, Víctor; Campuzano Ruiz, Susana; Farchado-Dinia, Meryem; Barderas Manchado, Rodrigo; San Segundo Acosta, Pablo; Montoya, Juan J.; Pingarrón Carrazón, José Manuel
    Microribonucleic acids (miRNAs) have been linked with various regulatory functions and diseases and constitute important targets in future medical diagnostics and prognostics. We report here a novel sensitive and rapid bioelectrochemical strategy for miRNA determination. This strategy involves the development of a sensing approach making use of magnetic beads (MBs) modified with a specific DNA-RNA antibody as capture bioreceptor and amperometric detection implying the H2O2/hydroquinone (HQ) system at disposable screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCEs). The developed biosensor exhibits a dynamic range from 8.2 to 250 pM and a detection limit of 2.4 pM (60 amol) of a synthetic target without any amplification step in 2 h. The usefulness of the approach was evaluated by analyzing total RNA (RNAt) extracted from metastatic cancer cell lines and human tumor tissues, which demonstrated its potential to perform determination of mature miRNAs in these complex samples. Moreover, the feasibility of the developed methodology to detect simultaneously the expression of two different miRNAs at dual SPCEs (SPdCEs) in one single experiment was also explored. The feasibility to capture and release target miRNAs make the developed methodology also an attractive tool to isolate, purify, and determine target miRNAs with great applicability in the clinical field.
