Abstract
A single-mode nonadiabatic tapered optical fiber (NATOF) biosensor based on ssDNA aptamer for detection of potassium ion (K+) was developed. Upon binding to K+, the G-rich single-stranded DNA can fold into the G-quadruplex structure, thus allowing the formation of G-quadruplex complex after incubation with K+ which is led to changing in refractive index (RI). Under optimum conditions, the wavelength shift was proportional to the concentration of K+ in the range of 10 ×10-4 to 2×10-2 mM. A detection limit of 4.5×10-4 was achieved. Moreover, this method was able to detect K+ with high selectivity in the presence of Na+ ion of biological fluids.
