"Breast cancer is one of the most critical threats to the health of women, and the development of new methods for early diagnosis is urgently required, so this paper reports a method to detect Michigan cancer foundation-7 (MCF-7) human breast cancer cells with considerable sensitivity and selectivity by using electrochemical technique. In this method, a mucin 1 (MUC1)-binding aptamer is adopted to recognize MCF-7 human breast cancer cells, while enzyme labeling is employed to produce amplified catalytic signals."
