- Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) threaten many kinds of life throughout the world. These compounds function the same as sexual hormones, inducing precocious puberty, gynecomastia, etc., in the human body. To prevent excess exposure to nonylphenol (NP), a simple and rapid detection system is needed. In this study, we develop a nonylphenol-specific aptamer from a random single-stranded DNA library and test a rapid sensor system based on the aptamer and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). The aptamer was screened by a methodology involving reduced graphene oxide (rGO). As a result of screening and sequencing, a DNA aptamer was developed that recognizes the target with high binding affinity (K-d = 194.2 +/- 65.9 nM) and specificity. The sensor system developed using the aptamer and gold nanoparticles is sensitive (LOD = 2.239 nM). Circular dichroism (CD) spectrometry results show that the free aptamer binds to the target molecule. The aptamer was characterized using gold nanoparticles to measure UV absorbance. Our results suggest that the sensor system developed using this aptamer is useful for field diagnosis of small molecules.
