  • Publication number: 20180119217
    Abstract: In some embodiments, the disclosure relates generally to methods, as well as related, systems, compositions, kits and apparatuses, for nucleic acid analysis that involve the use of modified nucleotides, including terminator nucleotides and/or tagged nucleotides, in a template-dependent nucleotide incorporation reaction. In some embodiments, the nucleic acid analysis can be conducted at a single reaction site, or at a plurality of reaction sites in an array of reaction sites. Optionally, the array contains a plurality of reaction sites having about 1-100 million, or about 100-250 million, or about 200-500 million, or about 500-900 million, or more reaction sites. Optionally, each reaction site is in contact with, operatively coupled, or capacitively coupled to one or more sensors that are ion-sensitive FETs (isFETs) or chemically-sensitive FETs (chemFETs) sensors. Optionally, the reaction sites are in fluid communication with each other.

  • Publication number: 20170369857
    Abstract: Provided herein are compositions and systems for use in polymerase-dependent, nucleotide transient-binding methods. The methods are useful for deducing the sequence of a template nucleic acid molecule and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analyses. The methods rely on the fact that the polymerase transient-binding time for a complementary nucleotide is longer compared to that of a non-complementary nucleotide. The labeled nucleotides transiently-binds the polymerase in a template-dependent manner, but does not incorporate. The methods are conducted under any reaction condition that permits transient binding of a complementary or non-complementary nucleotide to a polymerase, and inhibits nucleotide incorporation.

  • Patent number: 8058414
    Abstract: Nucleotide analogs that can sustain the enzymatic synthesis of double-stranded nucleic acid from a nucleic template are described. The nucleotide analogs include: (i) a base selected from the group consisting of adenine, guanine, cytosine, thymine, uracil and their analogs; (ii) a label attached to the base or analog of the base via a cleavable linker; (iii) a deoxyribose; and (iv) one or more phosphate groups. The linker and/or the label inhibits template directed polymerase incorporation of a further nucleotide substrate onto an extended primer strand. In addition, cleavage of the linker leaves a residue attached to the base which is not present in the natural nucleotide and which does not inhibit extension of the primer strand. The nucleotide analogs can therefore be used as reversible terminators in sequencing by synthesis methods without blocking the 3? hydroxyl group. Methods of sequencing DNA using the substrates are also described.
