About this item

This book covers the latest developments in rolling circle amplification (RCA) technology with applications in clinical diagnostic tests and molecular medicine. Topics covered include new enzymes useful in RCA, the RCA-involving techniques for enhanced signal amplification, novel RCA diagnostics, sensors for expedite RCA detection, and prospective RCA-based therapeutics. This is a valuable book for university professors and students in the field of biomedical engineering and biomolecular pharmacology as well as R&D managers of biotechnology and biopharmaceutical companies.
Specifically, this book:
  • Reviews prospective RCA-based therapeutics, including RCA-derived DNA nanoparticles that strongly bind to cancer cells, along with DNA nanoclews and DNA origami nanostructrures as vehicles for intracellular delivery of various drugs
  • Expands readers’ understanding of sensor systems for expediting detection of RCA products by using probe-tagged magnetic nanobeads
  • Maximizes reader insights into novel RCA diagnostics, such as PNA openers-assisted RCA for detection of single target cells, ramified RCA for identifying the disease-related SNPs, RNA-primed RCA for detection of microbial pathogens and in situ RCA diagnosis of cancer cells and malignant tissues
  • Presents innovative methods for quasi-exponential enhancement of RCA-generated signals, such as nicking enzyme-assisted cascade RCA and RCA coupled with loop-mediated amplification
Advance Praise for Rolling Circle Amplification (RCA):
“This book provides a badly needed compendium of innovative RCA methods and applications. It should help further increase the community of scientists that have employed RCA in research and diagnostic programs.”
— Charles Cantor, Professor Emeritus of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University Executive Director, Retrotope Inc. (USA)
“In this new book Vadim Demidov has assembled an enticing menu of articles that illustrate the evolution of the RCA field, including improved protein parts for building superior DNA nanomachines, enhanced modalities of amplification and detection, diagnostic applications, and even a sampling of potential therapeutic applications. The reader will appreciate that while RCA has come of age, there is no lack of exciting surprises, turns, and twists in the continuing evolution of the technology.”
— Paul Lizardi, Professor of Pathology, Yale University School of Medicine (retired) Investigator, University of Granada, Spain, President, PetaOmics, Inc., San Marcos, Texas
“The rolling circle concept for isothermal amplification is appealingly simple and has been adopted widely. This timely book details some of the promising applications under development that the t
