A label-free bifunctional colorimetric oligonucleotide probe for DNA and protein detection has been developed based on a novel catalytic molecular beacon consisting of two hairpin structures and a split G-quadruplex DNAzyme in the middle. The two loops of this molecular beacon consist of thrombin aptamer sequence and the complementary sequence of target DNA, which are utilized to sense single-stranded DNA and thrombin. The G-quadruplex DNAzyme can effectively catalyze the H2O2-mediated oxidation of 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine sulfate to generate colorimetric signal. Upon addition of the target, the DNA or protein combines with one loop of the hairpin structures, and meanwhile drives the middle G-quadruplex DNAzyme to dissociate. This results in a decrease of catalytic activity, enabling the separate analysis of DNA and thrombin.
