Abstract

See full text

An enzyme-free, isothermal method of generating an amplification signal indicative of a target nucleic acid molecule is provided, as are compositions for performing such a method. An advantage of the detection system is that it is very sensitive, and can allow for the detection of a single target molecule in a sample.
