A novel strategy for real-time analysis of oligonucleotide probe hybridization based on detection by surface plasmon resonance is described. The design of the analysis, exploiting the rapid dissociation kinetics of short oligonucleotides from their hybridization templates, allows monitoring in genuine sensor mode of equilibrium hybridization responses, circumventing the need for regeneration between sample cycles. Applied to a model system comprising oligonucleotide probes and different immobilized hybridization targets the effects of temperature, probe length, and nucleotide substitutions in template were investigated. The procedure described was observed to have an efficient discriminatory power with respect to end-mismatch situations. Affinity determinations of octamer probes showed good correlation between calculated T-m-values and probe affinities. From affinity data collected at different temperatures thermodynamic parameters were determined, which correlated well with data obtained from theoretical calculations. The technique, modified to a simplified form, allowed detection of single nucleotide substitutions in a target template, suggesting that procedures for confirmatory DNA sequencing can be envisioned.
