Abstract
The biomolecular interactions between a fluorescently labeled aptamer and whole cell Campylobacter jejuni(C. jejuni) have been characterized using capillary electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detection. From electrophoretic analysis, the bound complex forms, unbound aptamer, and cells were visualized. The relative binding affinity of the DNA aptamer with C. jejuni was compared with other food-borne pathogens including Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella typhimurium. Preliminary data suggests that this aptamer exhibits strong binding affinity towards C. jejuni with minimal cross reactivity over other food pathogens when equivalent cell concentrations were used.
