  • Patent number: 11225687
    Abstract: This invention provides nucleoside polyphosphate analogues each of which comprises a tag comprising a plurality of Raman-scattering moieties; compounds comprising said nucleoside polyphosphate analogs. This invention also provides nucleotide polymerases with one or more attached and/or conjugated noble metal nanoparticles, wherein the noble metal nanoparticles are surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) substrates thereby creating a region of enhanced sensitivity for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) within or adjacent to the polymerase. This invention also provides a surface with regions of enhanced sensitivity for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy comprising interspersed rough or nanostructured noble metal surface. This invention also provides methods for determining the sequence of a single stranded DNA or RNA polynucleotide using one or more of nucleoside polyphosphate analogues, polymerase with noble metal nanoparticles, and surface with noble metal.
