DNA Aptamers to Replace Antibodies in Disease Detection and Treatment

Researchers from the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) of A*STAR in Singapore have developed a better technology to detect and treat infectious diseases and cancer. The team improved the binding efficiency and nuclease resistance of aptamers, single-stranded DNAs designed to specifically target proteins, nuclei acids and cells. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports. […]
