DNP (2,4-dinitrophenyl) is classified as a hapten for molecular biology purposes, that is, a small molecule having high immunogenicity. Because antibodies raised against haptens have considerably higher affinities for them than other antibodies do for their targets makes haptens particularly desirable as affinity tags for oligonucleotides (1).

DNP attached to a triethylene glycol (TEG) spacer arm is commonly used to label oligonucleotides probes for use in hybridization applications, for example, in situ hybridization, Northern and Southern blotting (2). After hybridization to their targets, these DNP-labeled probes are detected with anti-DNP antibodies that are labeled with dyes (for primary detection) or enzymes (for secondary detection using a fluorogenic, chemiluminogenic, or colorimetric (3) substrate specific for the enzyme). To maximize signal obtained with such probes, Gene Link recommends modifying the oligonucleotide probe with three DNP molecules, either grouped at the 5’-end or spaced about 10 bases apart (2).

In addition to the above straightforward anti-DNP antibody-based detection systems, oligo probes labeled with both a fluorescent dye and DNP also been used for highly-sensitive direct detection of antigens (at femtoMolar levels) in a rolling circle amplification (RCA)-based assay system (4).
