Recognition elements respond to fusion gene logically, whereas the responses regulate the "open" and "closed" states of the tweeters and further regulate the "inactive" and "active" states of the DNAzyme. The activated DNAzymes successively cleave the fluorescence substrates, thus enabling the intelligent and sensitive detection of fusion events without the attending of any native enzyme.
