This work developed a novel spermine-modified nanodiamonds (SP-NDs)-based method to selectively enrich oligonucleotides for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) of human papillomavirus (HPV) virus. Our results showed that SP-NDs can effectively extract and enrich DNA oligonucleotides from sodium dodecyl sulfonate and urea solution. In addition, SP-NDs can also selectively extract oligonucleotides from enzymes digestion products of polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment mass polymorphism (PCR-RFMP) of HPV virus. Then, the extract can be detected by MALDI-TOF MS directly without further purification. According to the MS results, the HPV genotyping can be achieved. More importantly, with SP-NDs extraction, clinical samples infected with HPV genotype 16 and 18 can be identified. The described method shows great advantages of simplicity, high selectivity, and good reliability in real clinical samples. Due to our methods improvement on DNA enrichment, extraction and purification, the PCR-based MALDI-TOF MS for the analysis of oligonucleotides maybe become more rapid, sensitive, and high-throughput, is promising for analysis for DNA methylation, single-nucleotide polymorphisms, and other virus typing.
