dynabioBiophysical Analysis of Molecular Interactions with switchSENSE®

switchSENSE® is an automated biosensor chip technology that employs electrically actuated DNA nanolevers for the real-time measurement of binding kinetics (kON, kOFF) and affinities (KD). Interactions between proteins, DNA/RNA, and small molecules can be detected with femto-molar sensitivity. At the same time, protein diameters (DH) are analyzed with Angstrom accuracy and conformational changes as well as melting transitions (TM) can be measured using minimal amounts of sample.

The principles and applicability of three complementary measurement modalities provided by switchSENSE® will be introduced in this talk: Fluorescence Proximity Sensing, Molecular Ruler Measurements, and Switching Dynamics Measurements. In addition to standard workflows we’ll discuss unique possibilities for the functionalization of the sensor surface, i.e. the electrical adjustment of ligand densities and the precise assembly of different ligands on bifunctional nanolevers.

Application examples from drug development, quality control, and fundamental research will be discussed, including:

  • – Analysis of complex binders: high-affinity antibodies and bispecific antibody formats
  • – Small molecule induced conformational changes in proteins including dimers and aggregates
  • – RNA/DNA binding proteins including riboswitches and aptamers
  • – ‘large’ object binding including liposomes and virus-like particles
  • – nucleic acid : nucleic acid methodologies for genotyping, antisense and SNP detection
  • – Enzymatic activity of polymerases and CRISPR/Cas9
