Abstract: An electrochemical DNA biosensor based on recognition of double or singlestranded DNA (ds-DNA/ss-DNA) immobilised on a self-assembled modified gold electrodeis presented for denaturalisation and hybridisation detection. DNA is covalently bond on aself assembled 3-mercaptopropionic acid monolayer by using water soluble N-3-(dimethylaminopropyl)-N´ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC) and Nhydroxisulfosuccinimide(NHSS) as linkers. The interaction between the immobilised DNAand methylene blue (MB) is investigated using square wave voltammetry (SWV). Theincrease or diminution of peak currents of the MB upon the hybridisation or denaturalisationevent at the modified electrode surface is studied.
