Abstract

Very specific binding of the Ag(I) ion unexpectedly stabilized DNA duplexes containing the naturally occurring cytosine-cytosine (C-C) mismatch-base pair; because the C-C pair selectively binds to the Ag(I) ion, we developed a DNA-based Ag(I) sensor that employed an oligodeoxyribonucleotide containing C-C pairs used for Ag(I) binding sites.
