Abstract: Electrochemical devices have received particular attention due to their rapiddetection and great sensitivity for the evaluation of DNA-hazard compounds interactionmechanisms. Several types of bioanalytical method use nucleic acids probes to detect DNAdamage. This article reviews current directions and strategies in the development andapplications of electrochemical DNA sensors for the detection of DNA damage.
Keywords: DNA-electrochemical biosensor; DNA damage; damage to DNA bases; oxidative stress; biomarker of DNA damage; 8-oxo-7; 8-dihydroxguanine (8-oxoGua); 8-oxo-7; 8-dihydro-2’-deoxyguanosine (8-oxodGuo).
