A new isothermal nucleic acid amplification method termed FERA (Flap endonuclease-initiated Enzymatic Repairing Amplification) is developed for the ultrasensitive detection of target nucleic acids. In the FERA method, flap endonuclease (FEN) catalyzesthe hydrolytic cleavage at the junction of single-and double-stranded DNAs which is formed only in the presence of target nucleic acids, and releases short oligonucleotides to promote the cyclic enzymatic repairing amplification (ERA) combined with FEN-based amplification. As a result, a large amount of single-and double-stranded DNAs are generated under the isothermal conditions, leading to the high fluorescence intensity from the SYBR I green dye. Relying on the powerful amplification method, we successfully determined the target nucleic acids with a limit of detection as low as 15.16 aM, which corresponds to approximately 180 molecules in 20 mu L reaction volume, and verified the practical applicability by detecting long target nucleic acids derived from Chlamydia trachomatis.
