  • Publication number: 20230365614
    Abstract: Compositions, methods, and systems are provided for fluorescent polymerase enzyme substrates comprising protein shields for improving enzyme photostability in single molecule real time sequencing. Fluorescent polymerase enzyme substrates of the invention have a protein shield between the fluorescent dye moieties and nucleotide moieties of the polymerase enzyme substrate. The polymerase enzyme substrates have a nucleotide component and a dye component, each attached to a protein. The attachments can be covalent. The protein can, for example, prevent the direct interaction of the fluorescent dye moiety with the enzyme when carrying out nucleotide synthesis, preventing photodamage to the enzyme. The polymerase enzyme substrates of the invention can have multiple dyes and multiple nucleotide moieties.

  • Publication number: 20230192749
    Abstract: Protected fluorescent reagent compounds and their methods of synthesis are provided. The compounds are useful in various fluorescence-based analytical methods, including the analysis of highly multiplexed optical reactions in large numbers at high densities, such as single molecule real time nucleic acid sequencing reactions. The compounds contain fluorescent dye elements, that allow the compounds to be detected with high sensitivity at desirable wavelengths, binding elements, that allow the compounds to be recognized specifically by target biomolecules, and protective shield elements, that decrease undesirable contacts between the fluorescent dye elements and the bound target biomolecules and that therefore decrease photodamage of the bound target biomolecules by the fluorescent dye elements.

  • Publication number: 20220064725
    Abstract: Real time electronic sequencing devices, chips, and systems are described. Arrays of nanoFET devices are used to provide sequence information about a template nucleic acid in a polymerase-template complex bound to the nanoFET. The nanoFET devices typically have a source, a drain and a gate comprising a nanowire. A single polymerase enzyme complex comprising a polymerase enzyme complexed with the template nucleic acid is bound to the gate. The polymerase is bound to the gate non-covalently through a polymeric binding agent that has two strands, each strand interacting with the nanowire such that the polymerase is in a central location between the strands with the polymeric binding agent extending away from the polymerase complex along the nanowire in both directions.

  • Patent number: 11142793
    Abstract: Sequencing methods, devices, and systems are described. Arrays of nanoscale electronic elements comprising two electrodes separated by an insulating layer are used to provide sequence information about a template nucleic acid in a polymerase-template complex bound proximate to the insulating region. A sequencing reaction mixture comprising nucleotide analogs having impedance labels is introduced to the array of nanoscale electronic elements under conditions of polymerase mediated nucleic acid synthesis. The time sequence of incorporation of nucleotide analogs is determined by identifying the types of labels of the nucleotide analogs that are incorporated into the growing strand using measured impedance.
