All of the divisions of the natural sciences dealing with the various aspects of the phenomena of life and vital processes. The concept includes anatomy and physiology, biochemistry and biophysics, and the biology of animals, plants, and microorganisms. It should be differentiated from BIOLOGY, one of its subdivisions, concerned specifically with the origin and life processes of living organisms.
Microscopy of specimens stained with fluorescent dye (usually fluorescein isothiocyanate) or of naturally fluorescent materials, which emit light when exposed to ultraviolet or blue light. Immunofluorescence microscopy utilizes antibodies that are labeled with fluorescent dye.
The property of emitting radiation while being irradiated. The radiation emitted is usually of longer wavelength than that incident or absorbed, e.g., a substance can be irradiated with invisible radiation and emit visible light. X-ray fluorescence is used in diagnosis.
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. It was established in 1948.
The use of instrumentation and techniques for visualizing material and details that cannot be seen by the unaided eye. It is usually done by enlarging images, transmitted by light or electron beams, with optical or magnetic lenses that magnify the entire image field. With scanning microscopy, images are generated by collecting output from the specimen in a point-by-point fashion, on a magnified scale, as it is scanned by a narrow beam of light or electrons, a laser, a conductive probe, or a topographical probe.

Discrete concentrations of energy, apparently massless elementary particles, that move at the speed of light. They are the unit or quantum of electromagnetic radiation. Photons are emitted when electrons move from one energy state to another. (From Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 11th ed)
An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
A distribution function used to describe the occurrence of rare events or to describe the sampling distribution of isolated counts in a continuum of time or space.
A method of computed tomography that uses radionuclides which emit a single photon of a given energy. The camera is rotated 180 or 360 degrees around the patient to capture images at multiple positions along the arc. The computer is then used to reconstruct the transaxial, sagittal, and coronal images from the 3-dimensional distribution of radionuclides in the organ. The advantages of SPECT are that it can be used to observe biochemical and physiological processes as well as size and volume of the organ. The disadvantage is that, unlike positron-emission tomography where the positron-electron annihilation results in the emission of 2 photons at 180 degrees from each other, SPECT requires physical collimation to line up the photons, which results in the loss of many available photons and hence degrades the image.

Association of snRNA genes with coiled bodies is mediated by nascent snRNA transcripts. (1/23915)

BACKGROUND: Coiled bodies are nuclear organelles that are highly enriched in small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (snRNPs) and certain basal transcription factors. Surprisingly, coiled bodies not only contain mature U snRNPs but also associate with specific chromosomal loci, including gene clusters that encode U snRNAs and histone messenger RNAs. The mechanism(s) by which coiled bodies associate with these genes is completely unknown. RESULTS: Using stable cell lines, we show that artificial tandem arrays of human U1 and U2 snRNA genes colocalize with coiled bodies and that the frequency of the colocalization depends directly on the transcriptional activity of the array. Association of the genes with coiled bodies was abolished when the artificial U2 arrays contained promoter mutations that prevent transcription or when RNA polymerase II transcription was globally inhibited by alpha-amanitin. Remarkably, the association was also abolished when the U2 snRNA coding regions were replaced by heterologous sequences. CONCLUSIONS: The requirement for the U2 snRNA coding region indicates that association of snRNA genes with coiled bodies is mediated by the nascent U2 RNA itself, not by DNA or DNA-bound proteins. Our data provide the first evidence that association of genes with a nuclear organelle can be directed by an RNA and suggest an autogenous feedback regulation model.  (+info)

Deletion analysis of the Drosophila Inscuteable protein reveals domains for cortical localization and asymmetric localization. (2/23915)

The Drosophila Inscuteable protein acts as a key regulator of asymmetric cell division during the development of the nervous system [1] [2]. In neuroblasts, Inscuteable localizes into an apical cortical crescent during late interphase and most of mitosis. During mitosis, Inscuteable is required for the correct apical-basal orientation of the mitotic spindle and for the asymmetric segregation of the proteins Numb [3] [4] [5], Prospero [5] [6] [7] and Miranda [8] [9] into the basal daughter cell. When Inscuteable is ectopically expressed in epidermal cells, which normally orient their mitotic spindle parallel to the embryo surface, these cells reorient their mitotic spindle and divide perpendicularly to the surface [1]. Like the Inscuteable protein, the inscuteable RNA is asymmetrically localized [10]. We show here that inscuteable RNA localization is not required for Inscuteable protein localization. We found that a central 364 amino acid domain - the Inscuteable asymmetry domain - was necessary and sufficient for Inscuteable localization and function. Within this domain, a separate 100 amino acid region was required for asymmetric localization along the cortex, whereas a 158 amino acid region directed localization to the cell cortex. The same 158 amino acid fragment could localize asymmetrically when coexpressed with the full-length protein, however, and could bind to Inscuteable in vitro, suggesting that this domain may be involved in the self-association of Inscuteable in vivo.  (+info)

Evidence for F-actin-dependent and -independent mechanisms involved in assembly and stability of the medial actomyosin ring in fission yeast. (3/23915)

Cell division in a number of eukaryotes, including the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, is achieved through a medially placed actomyosin-based contractile ring. Although several components of the actomyosin ring have been identified, the mechanisms regulating ring assembly are still not understood. Here, we show by biochemical and mutational studies that the S.pombe actomyosin ring component Cdc4p is a light chain associated with Myo2p, a myosin II heavy chain. Localization of Myo2p to the medial ring depended on Cdc4p function, whereas localization of Cdc4p at the division site was independent of Myo2p. Interestingly, the actin-binding and motor domains of Myo2p are not required for its accumulation at the division site although the motor activity of Myo2p is essential for assembly of a normal actomyosin ring. The initial assembly of Myo2p and Cdc4p at the division site requires a functional F-actin cytoskeleton. Once established, however, F-actin is not required for the maintenance of Cdc4p and Myo2p medial rings, suggesting that the attachment of Cdc4p and Myo2p to the division site involves proteins other than actin itself.  (+info)

Deletion of a region that is a candidate for the difference between the deletion forms of hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin and deltabeta-thalassemia affects beta- but not gamma-globin gene expression. (4/23915)

The analysis of a number of cases of beta-globin thalassemia and hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin (HPFH) due to large deletions in the beta-globin locus has led to the identification of several DNA elements that have been implicated in the switch from human fetal gamma- to adult beta-globin gene expression. We have tested this hypothesis for an element that covers the minimal distance between the thalassemia and HPFH deletions and is thought to be responsible for the difference between a deletion HPFH and deltabeta-thalassemia, located 5' of the delta-globin gene. This element has been deleted from a yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) containing the complete human beta-globin locus. Analysis of this modified YAC in transgenic mice shows that early embryonic expression is unaffected, but in the fetal liver it is subject to position effects. In addition, the efficiency of transcription of the beta-globin gene is decreased, but the developmental silencing of the gamma-globin genes is unaffected by the deletion. These results show that the deleted element is involved in the activation of the beta-globin gene perhaps through the loss of a structural function required for gene activation by long-range interactions.  (+info)

The disulfide-bonded loop of chromogranin B mediates membrane binding and directs sorting from the trans-Golgi network to secretory granules. (5/23915)

The disulfide-bonded loop of chromogranin B (CgB), a regulated secretory protein with widespread distribution in neuroendocrine cells, is known to be essential for the sorting of CgB from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to immature secretory granules. Here we show that this loop, when fused to the constitutively secreted protein alpha1-antitrypsin (AT), is sufficient to direct the fusion protein to secretory granules. Importantly, the sorting efficiency of the AT reporter protein bearing two loops (E2/3-AT-E2/3) is much higher compared with that of AT with a single disulfide-bonded loop. In contrast to endogenous CgB, E2/3-AT-E2/3 does not undergo Ca2+/pH-dependent aggregation in the TGN. Furthermore, the disulfide-bonded loop of CgB mediates membrane binding in the TGN and does so with 5-fold higher efficiency if two loops are present on the reporter protein. The latter finding supports the concept that under physiological conditions, aggregates of CgB are the sorted units of cargo which have multiple loops on their surface leading to high membrane binding and sorting efficiency of CgB in the TGN.  (+info)

Optical mapping of Plasmodium falciparum chromosome 2. (6/23915)

Detailed restriction maps of microbial genomes are a valuable resource in genome sequencing studies but are toilsome to construct by contig construction of maps derived from cloned DNA. Analysis of genomic DNA enables large stretches of the genome to be mapped and circumvents library construction and associated cloning artifacts. We used pulsed-field gel electrophoresis purified Plasmodium falciparum chromosome 2 DNA as the starting material for optical mapping, a system for making ordered restriction maps from ensembles of individual DNA molecules. DNA molecules were bound to derivatized glass surfaces, cleaved with NheI or BamHI, and imaged by digital fluorescence microscopy. Large pieces of the chromosome containing ordered DNA restriction fragments were mapped. Maps were assembled from 50 molecules producing an average contig depth of 15 molecules and high-resolution restriction maps covering the entire chromosome. Chromosome 2 was found to be 976 kb by optical mapping with NheI, and 946 kb with BamHI, which compares closely to the published size of 947 kb from large-scale sequencing. The maps were used to further verify assemblies from the plasmid library used for sequencing. Maps generated in silico from the sequence data were compared to the optical mapping data, and good correspondence was found. Such high-resolution restriction maps may become an indispensable resource for large-scale genome sequencing projects.  (+info)

Inducible long-term gene expression in brain with adeno-associated virus gene transfer. (7/23915)

Recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) vectors hold promise for treating a number of neurological disorders due to the ability to deliver long-term gene expression without toxicity or immune response. Critical to these endeavors will be controlled expression of the therapeutic gene in target cells. We have constructed and tested a dual cassette rAAV vector carrying a reporter gene under the control of the tetracycline-responsive system and the tetracycline transactivator. Transduction in vitro resulted in stable expression from the vector that can be suppressed 20-fold by tetracycline treatment. In vivo experiments, carried out to 6 weeks, demonstrated that vector-transduced expression is sustained until doxycycline administration upon which reporter gene expression is reduced. Moreover, the suppression of vector-driven expression can be reversed by removal of the drug. These studies demonstrate long-term regulated gene expression from rAAV vectors. This system will provide a valuable approach for controlling vector gene expression both in vitro and in vivo.  (+info)

Transcriptional regulation and induction of apoptosis: implications for the use of monomeric p53 variants in gene therapy. (8/23915)

The p53 tumour suppressor protein is a transcriptional activator, which can induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. p53 Gene mutations occur in more than 50% of all human tumours. Reintroduction of wild-type p53 but also of oligomerisation-independent p53 variants into tumour cells by gene transfer methods has been considered. We have investigated the biological properties of two carboxy-terminal deletion mutants of p53, p53 delta 300 (comprising amino acids 1-300) and p53 delta 326 (amino acids 1-326), to evaluate their potential deployment in gene therapy. Transactivation was measured in transiently transfected HeLa and SKBR3 cells. Both monomeric variants showed reduced activities compared with wild-type p53. Individual promoters were differently affected. In contrast to wild-type p53, monomeric variants were not able to induce apoptosis. We also provided wild-type p53 and p53 delta 326 with tetracycline-regulated promoters and stably introduced these constructs into Saos2 and SKBR3 cells. Upon induction, wild-type p53 expressing cells, but not p53 delta 326 expressing cells underwent apoptosis. Consistently, only wild-type p53 expressing cells accumulated p21/waf1/cip1 mRNA and protein and showed increased bax, Gadd45 and mdm2 mRNA. Neither wild-type p53 nor p53 delta 326 repressed the transcription of the IGF-1R gene in these cell lines. We conclude that the transactivation potential of monomeric, carboxy-terminally truncated p53 is not sufficient to cause induction of the endogenous target genes which trigger apoptosis.  (+info)

Total Internal Reflection Microscopy (TIRM) is a sensitive non-invasive technique to measure the interaction potentials between a colloidal particle and a wall with femtonewton resolution. The equilibrium distribution of the particle-wall separation distance z is sampled monitoring the intensity I scattered by the Brownian particle under evanescent illumination. Central to the data analysis is the knowledge of the relation between I and the corresponding z, which typically must be known a priori. This poses considerable constraints to the experimental conditions where TIRM can be applied (short penetration depth of the evanescent wave, transparent surfaces). Here, we introduce a method to experimentally determine I(z) by relying only on the distance-dependent particle-wall hydrodynamic interactions. We demonstrate that this method largely extends the range of conditions accessible with TIRM, and even allows measurements on highly reflecting gold surfaces where multiple reflections lead to a ...

Imaging single-channel Ca21 signals by total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy. (A) Schematic of the TIRFM imaging system. The 488-nm beam from an argon ion laser (50 mW) passes through a 53 beam expander (BE) and is focused by a lens (FL; f ¼ 150 mm) via a dichroic mirror (DM)to a spot at the back focal plane of the microscope objective lens (Olympus TIRFM 603, oil immersion, NA ¼ 1.45). The focusing lens is mounted on a micrometer-driven translation stage, so that the laser beam can be adjusted to enter the periphery of the objective aperture so as to achieve total internal reflection at the interface between the cover glass and the aqueous bathing medium. An adjustable rectangular knife-blade aperture (A) located at a conjugate image plane defines the field of excitation. Fluorescence excited in the specimen by the evanescent wave is collected by the same objective, passes through the dichroic mirror and a barrier filter (BF) blocking the laser wavelength, and is imaged by an ...
Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) is an elegant optical technique utilized to observe single molecule fluorescence at surfaces and interfaces. This section is an index to our discussions, references, and interactive Java tutorials that describe TIRFM.
The regulated trafficking or exocytosis of cargo-containing vesicles to the cell surface is fundamental to all cells. By coupling the technology of fluorescently tagged fusion proteins with total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM), it is possible to achieve the high spatio-temporal resolution required to study the dynamics of sub-plasma membrane vesicle trafficking and exocytosis. TIRFM has been used in a number of cell types to visualize and dissect the various steps of exocytosis revealing how molecules identified via genetic and/or biochemical approaches are involved in the regulation of this process. Here, we summarize the contribution of TIRFM to our understanding of the mechanism of exocytosis and discuss the novel methods of analysis that are required to exploit the large volumes of data that can be produced using this technique.
We report the use of a high-refractive-index aplanatic solid immersion lens (ASIL) in total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. This new solid immersion total internal reflection fluorescence (SITIRF) microscopy allows highly confined surface imaging with a significantly reduced imaging depth compared with conventional TIRF microscopy. We explore the application of a high refractive index, low optical dispersion material zirconium dioxide in the SITIRF microscope and also introduce a novel system design which enables the SITIRF microscope to work either in the epi-fluorescence or TIRF modes with variable illumination angles. We use both synthetic and biological samples to demonstrate that the imaging depth in the SITIRF microscope can be confined to a few tens of nanometers. SITIRF microscopy has the advantages of performing highly selective imaging and high-resolution high-contrast imaging. Potential applications in biological imaging and future developments of SITIRF microscopy ...

PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - Relatively simple modifications of an ordinary epifluorescence microscope have greatly reduced its background luminescence, allowing continuous and real time imaging of single fluorophores in an aqueous medium. Main modifications were changing the excitation light path and setting an aperture stop so that stray light does not scatter inside the microscope. A simple and accurate method using actin filaments is presented to establish the singularity of the observed fluorophores. It was possible, at the video rate of 30 frames/s, to image individual tetramethylrhodamine fluorophores bound to actin filaments sliding over heavy meromyosin. The successful imaging of moving fluorophores demonstrates that conventional microscopes may become a routine tool for studying dynamic ...

In 2008, the first international Theodor Förster lecture series took place at the University of Cambridge http://laser.ceb.cam.ac.uk/foerster. Throughout the year, leading researchers were invited from all over the world to hold talks and engage with the life science community at Cambridge. The focus was on developments in quantitative optical microscopy techniques, which are revolutionizing research in the biological sciences today.. The name of the series commemorates the brilliant contributions of Theodor Förster, who, 60 years ago, published his seminal paper on the quantitative theory of electronic energy transfer (Förster 1948). The process, now known as Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET), takes place frequently in nature and refers to the non-radiative transport of energy from a donor to an acceptor molecule. Förster recognized that through a sequence of such interactions, energy can migrate over distances much larger than the molecular scale and in one sweep he had resolved ...
In electromagnetics, an evanescent field, or evanescent wave, is an oscillating electric and/or magnetic field that does not propagate as an electromagnetic wave but whose energy is spatially concentrated in the vicinity of the source (oscillating charges and currents). Even when there in fact is an electromagnetic wave produced (e.g., by a transmitting antenna) one can still identify as an evanescent field the component of the electric or magnetic field that cannot be attributed to the propagating wave observed at a distance of many wavelengths (such as the far field of a transmitting antenna). A hallmark of an evanescent field is that there is no net energy flow in that region. Since the net flow of electromagnetic energy is given by the average Poynting vector, that means that the Poynting vector in these regions, as averaged over a complete oscillation cycle, is zero. In many cases one cannot simply say that a field is or is not evanescent. For instance, in the above illustration energy is ...

A wide range of optical designs for TIRFM have been employed with both inverted and upright microscope configurations. This discussion focuses on TIRFM configurations that utilize a prism to direct light toward the TIR interface.
Basic molecular mechanisms of cell surface receptors that mediate transmembrane signals can be elucidated by integrating information from multiple interdisciplinary approaches. Our studies focus on the receptor (FceRI) for immunoglobulin E (IgE) that plays a central role in the allergic response and serves as a model for other types of immune receptors. Binding and cross-linking of IgE-FceRI complexes by antigen initiates signal transduction resulting in cell activation and release of chemical mediators.. We measure kinetics and thermodynamics of binding and cross-linking between cell-bound IgE and structurally defined ligands with fluorescence methods and analyze with realistic theoretical models to determine features that are critical for signaling. We employ quantitative fluorescence microscopy, including confocal imaging and total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy, to monitor changes in the distribution and dynamics of the receptor and signaling components (and genetically ...
Single molecule fluorescence measurements are used to probe the effects of GM1 in DPPC monolayers. Langmuir-Blodgett films of GM1 and DPPC were doped with ~10−8 mol% of the fluorescent lipid probe, BODIPY-PC, and transferred onto glass substrates at 23 mN/m. As shown previously, the individual orientation of each BODIPY-PC probe in the membrane can be measured using defocused polarized total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy, revealing changes in film properties at the molecular level. Here, BODIPY-PC tilt angle histograms are used to characterize the effects of GM1 in DPPC films from 0.05 mol% to 100 mol% GM1. At high GM1 levels (,5 mol% GM1), trends in the single molecule measurements agree with previous bulk measurements showing the turnover from condensing to expanding influence of GM1 at ~20 mol%, thus validating the single molecule approach. At biologically relevant, low concentrations of GM1 (,5 mol% GM1), where bulk fluorescence measurements are less informative, the single ...

As a high-resolution wide-field near-surface microscopy, total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) has been widely applied for the study of biomolecules. Unlike those costly, sample consuming and time consuming traditional detection assays, the application of TIRFM enable the direct quantification of biomolecules in a sample pretreatment and enrichment free fashion. Taking advantages of the TIRFM imaging system, in this thesis we have applied the TIRFM imaging system to directly quantify the content of different cancer associated biomarkers. Four different detection approaches for direct cancer biomarkers quantification with the aid of TIRFM were herein presented respectively. In Chapter 2, a direct quantification of nasopharyngeal carcinoma associated miRNAs was described. In the assay, five different miRNAs were chosen as the target analytes, which hybridized with the synthetic complementary LNA, probe in solution. The duplex was labeled with intercalating fluorescence dye YOYO-1 and

In this study we show that as a single agent in Hct116 cells in vitro, SN-38 induces cell cycle arrest without cell death. This correlates to the absence of CRs observed in vivo with CPT-11 alone. The addition of flavopiridol to SN-38-treated Hct116 cells caused cell death in vitro, and in vivo this translated into greater tumor regression as well as CRs. With clonogenic assays, we observed that SN-38-treated cells remained attached to the plate as viable single cells. These cells did not form colonies because cell cycle arrest by SN-38, and this resulted in the inhibition of colony formation. However, SN-38 alone did not induce apoptosis; therefore, we did not observe PARP cleavage or caspase-3 activation. In contrast, flavopiridol added to SN-38-treated Hct116 cells induced significant apoptosis as indicated by quantitative fluorescence microscopy assays, PARP cleavage, and caspase-3 activation. We observed neither single viable cells nor colonies by clonogenic assays. In essence, flavopiridol ...

Endocytosis/recycling and exocytosis are mechanisms conserved through evolution allowing cells to communicate with their external medium. In order to study these dynamic processes, the present work proposes a patch-based method for detecting recycling or exocytotic events at the Plasma membrane in fast TIRF microscopy combined with the computation of normalized temporal representations of those events. Evaluation, performed on TIRF sequences showing Transferrin receptor (TfR) recycling, validates a high detection rate fully compatible with an automatic data extraction and analysis of the plasma membrane recycling process.
We study the molecular mechanisms underlying bacterial multiplication. Bacteria are renowned for their fast multiplication. During their short cell cycles, bacteria grow, replicate and segregate their chromosomes and divide. They do all of this with sometimes blazing speed and with remarkable temporal and spatial accuracy, which explains their success. Despite the medical, agricultural and ecological importance of bacteria, little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved in growth, DNA segregation, cell division and cell morphogenesis. Similarly, the temporal and spatial mechanisms regulating these essential processes remain largely elusive. We address these fundamental questions using genetics, biochemistry, quantitative fluorescence microscopy and modeling.. ...
Dragonfly is a multi-dimensional imaging platform offering three key imaging modalities. At its core is a multi-point confocal for high-speed and high-sensitivity image capture. With speed at least 10x faster than conventional confocal technology, this mode is the optimal solution for live cell imaging, avoiding sensitivities to phototoxicity and photobleaching.. A second mode is laser-illuminated widefield epifluorescence. This mode is ideal for applications that do not benefit from confocal imaging, such as very thin samples or applications that require high laser power density, such as single molecule localisation. This mode benefits from Borealis illumination and is complemented by GPU accelerated deconvolution.. The third mode is total internal reflectance microscopy (TIRF) which is available as a factory-installed option. This is the tool of choice for imaging protein dynamics at or proximal to the cell membrane.. The Dragonfly platform is controlled by Andors Fusion software, which ...
The nature of light limits the size of the spot to which light can be focused. According to the diffraction limit a focused light distribution cannot be made smaller than approximately half of the wavelength of the used light. Uncovered in the 19th century by Ernst Abbe this has been a barrier of the achievable resolution of fluorescence light microscopes for a long time. While resolution is denoted by the ability to discern different objects of the same kind, localizing or tracking of single particles have been performed with a precision much below the diffraction limit.. Several improvements in microscopy techniques have been invented in the 20th century and have resulted in increased resolution and contrast to some extent. In 1978 first theoretical ideas have been developed to break this barrier by using a 4Pi microscope as a confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscope where the light is focused ideally from all sides to a common focus which is used to scan the object by point-by-point ...
Understanding a proteins subcellular localization is critical to understanding a proteins role in the cell. The physical location of a protein limits its possible interaction partners and suggests possible biological functions for the protein [1]. The subcellular localization of a protein may be readily assessed by covalently binding it to a fluorescent protein, such as green fluorescent protein (GFP), and viewing the resulting fluorescence by microscopy. The observed pattern and intensity of fluorescence indicate the location and relative quantity of the protein in the cell.. Protein-protein interactions may be assessed via fluorescence microscopy by observing the relative subcellular localization of separate proteins simultaneously tagged with different fluorescent proteins. Proteins with strongly overlapping patterns of subcellular localization are said to colocalize; and this colocalization may indicate similar biological function or possible protein-protein interaction. Interactions may ...
Total internal reflection microscopy excites only to a depth of 100 nm, which is ideally suited to visualize fluorescent membrane proteins or proteins that operate adjacent to a membrane. Our 2 setups allow the use of UV, blue, green, yellow and red excitation, and the combination with Fluorescence Revovery after Photobleaching (FRAP). This technique uses bleaching of a small area within cells and determines protein mobility by measuring regain of fluorescence within the bleached area over time. Differential FRAP can determine association constants of protein complexes within live cells, which is done in the Flow Cytometry & Imaging Facility of the MPI Micter http://www.mpi-marburg.mpg.de/facs. Our TIRF microscopes are based on Zeiss Axioobservers, feature fast EM-CCD cameras and can also be used for regular wide field microscopy, including 3D reconstruction and time lapse microscopy.. ...
As changes in cytosolic free Ca2+ play key roles in coupling responses in neutrophils, it is important to locate and identify Ca2+ storage sites within these cells. Here, recent data is presented which highlights the functional link between microanatomical structure and cell signalling function. Fluorescent optical probes for cytosolic free Ca2+ have been used, together with organelle specific markers. We present evidence from conventional fluorescence microscopy, together with ratiometric and confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscopy, which pin-points two cellular locations for Ca2+ within the neutrophil; one within the nuclear lobes, and the other towards the cell periphery. Knowledge of these two locations provides a clear insight into how signalling in this cell type is regulated and provides a framework for explaining how specific stimuli act to produce specific responses. ...

This dissertation describes the application of fluorescence microscopy techniques to investigations of mass transport phenomena in self-assembled nanomaterials. The microscopic morphologies of the materials and the mass-transport dynamics of probe molecules dispersed within them were assessed with high temporal and spatial resolution by single molecule imaging and spectroscopic methods. Three distinct sets of experiments were performed in completing the work for this dissertation. In the first study, single molecule imaging was employed to explore the interactions and field-induced migration of double-stranded DNA (ds-DNA) molecules with nanostructured Pluronic F127 gels. While DNA interactions with nanostructured gels have been explored in the past, none had apparently looked at these interactions in gels comprising hexagonally ordered arrays of cylindrical micelles. Therefore, these studies focused on materials DNA dispersed in flow aligned hexagonal F127. DNA molecules were found to be ...
Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscopy (TIRFM) is a common method to study structural and dynamic processes at the single-molecule level. The principle is based on an optical phenomenon where electromagnetic radiation is not refracted but totally reflected on the boundary surface of two different media. An evanescent field is generated at the boundary surface and penetrates the medium with lower optical density where fluorescent molecules can be excited. This evanescent wave attains its maximum intensity at the surface and then exponentially decays with increasing penetration depth. Therefore, only molecules located near the surface are excited, as opposed to molecules situated at distances exceeding approx. 100 nm, and thus TIRF efficiently decreases background signals of the bulk solution and allows sensitive detection down to single molecules ...

Box 1. Determining the quality of a TIRF set up. The test samples described below can be used to check the quality of any TIRF set up. They should always be prepared using a cover slip with the correct thickness and refractive index for the objective.. Test samples. Fluorescent microbeads. These can be purchased from many sources, including Invitrogen (Carlsbad, CA) and Bangs Laboratories (Fishers, IN). The beads should be of subresolution size (100 nm diameter or less), and selected to have excitation and emission spectra that match typical experimental conditions. The beads should be diluted in water and applied to the cover slip. PBS can be added to increase the number of beads that adhere to the surface.. DiI. A convenient, uniform, fluorescent film can be easily made on a cover slip surface with the lipophilic fluorophore DiI (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA). Dissolve the DiI at 0.5 mg/ml in ethanol and place a single droplet of the solution on a glass cover slip. Then, before the solution dries, ...
Super-resolution fluorescence imaging methods based on reversible photoswitching of fluorophores with subsequent localization currently develop to promising tools for cellular imaging. Since most of these methods rely on the transfer of the majority of fluorophores to a non-fluorescent dark state and precise localization of separated fluorescent fluorophores, the photophysical properties of photoswitchable fluorophores have to be carefully controlled. The achievable resolution and herewith the ability to resolve a structural feature depends not only on the brightness of the fluorophores, but also on the labeling density and on the stability or lifetime of the non-fluorescent dark state. Here, we discuss how the ratio of off- and on-switching of a fluorophore affects resolution. We compare experimental data with theoretical simulations and present a strategy to customize photoswitching characteristics to achieve optimal optical resolution. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V.

A super-resolution platform for correlative live single-molecule imaging and STED microscopy. Super-resolution microscopy offers tremendous opportunities to unravel the complex and dynamic architecture of living cells. However, current super-resolution microscopes are well suited for revealing protein distributions or cell morphology, but not both. We present a super-resolution platform that permits correlative single-molecule imaging and stimulated emission depletion microscopy in live cells. It gives nanoscale access to the positions and movements of synaptic proteins within the morphological context of growth cones and dendritic spines.. ...
0050] This species of surgical fluorescence stereomicroscopes requires specific properties known to one skilled in the art, and specific constituents of the microscope that make said properties possible. Those pertinent to conventional fluorescence microscopy (which already existed long before the creation of surgical fluorescence stereomicroscopes) are: [0051] an excitation light source or excitation illumination device (formerly, for example, often a mercury vapor lamp), [0052] an excitation filter to improve the quality of the excitation light (spectrally filtering out those light wavelength regions that do not contribute particularly well, or at all, to fluorescence excitation), and a blocking filter or observation filter in the observation beam path of the surgical fluorescence stereomicroscope. The latter serves in turn to filter out the excitation light to a greater or lesser extent, since little or none of it is after all intended in principle to be seen, but the emission of the ...

Structural characterization by super-resolution microscopy has become increasingly widespread, particularly in the biological community. The technique is powerful because it can produce real-space images with resolutions of tens of nanometers, while sample preparation is relatively non-invasive. Previous studies have applied these techniques to important scientific problems in the life sciences, but relatively little work has explored the attainable limit of resolution using samples of known structure. In this work, we apply photo-activated localization microscopy (PALM) to polymer films that have been nanopatterned using electron-beam lithography. Trace amounts of a rhodamine spiroamide dye are dispersed into nanostructured poly(methyl methacrylate), and UV-induced switching of the fluorophores enables nanoscale localization of single molecules to generate a final composite super-resolution image. Features as small as 25 nm half-pitch are clearly resolvable.. We also explore the effect of ...
Fluorescence filters help to isolate specific wavelengths of fluoresced light - which might seem light years away from anything to do with jellyfish evolution.. But in fact, many modern scientific processes are derived from naturally occurring biochemical capabilities, such as the green fluorescent proteins (GFPs) found off the coast of North America in the jellyfish species Aequorea victoria.. These green proteins can be used as fluorescent markers for biological phenomena, by attaching them as genetic tags and then using fluorescence filters to see where they go.. Some GFPs can do more though - including changing colour to become red - and these are especially valuable for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy.. A team at Arizona State University have now discovered a hinge migration mechanism that they say is the key for evolution of a green-to-red photoconvertible phenotype in a GFP.. It took eight years to unlock this process, which is described in a paper published in the academic ...
Visualizing 3D structure and dynamics at the molecular scale is a current and critical need in biomedical research. Many sub-cellular features, for example the morphology of many organelles or the 3D organization of chromatin, cannot be resolved by standard light microscopy. Improving the resolution of light microscopy has therefore been an urgent need of biological research for many decades. Today, several methods achieve sub-100 nm resolution by taking advantage of reversible or irreversible photo-physical switching properties of fluorescent markers. Our research group in the Department of Cell Biology at Yale University School of Medicine is developing new fluorescence microscopy techniques with spatial and/or temporal resolutions exceeding far beyond current technology and also applying them to a diverse set of biological questions.. Specialized Terms: Super-resolution fluorescence ...
-A key step of adaptive immune responses is the T lymphocyte capacity to detect the presence of foreign antigens on specialized cells with high speed and specificity during contacts lasting a few minutes. Much evidence suggests that there is a deep link between the lifetime of molecular interactions between T cell receptors and ligands and T cell activation, but the precise mechanisms of bond formation and dissociation remain incompletely understood. Previous experiments done with interference reflection microscopy/reflection interference contrast microscopy disclosed transverse motions with several nanometer average amplitude of micrometer size membrane zones. More recently, total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy was used to show that the initial interaction between primary T lymphocytes and model surfaces involved the tip of microvilli (typically 0.2 lm 2 area) generating apparent contacts of a few seconds that allowed cells to detect ligands of their membrane receptors. Here we show that
The study of protein dynamics is essential for understanding the multi-molecular complexes at subcellular levels. Fluorescent Protein (XFP)-tagging and time-lapse fluorescence microscopy enable to observe molecular dynamics and interactions in live cells, unraveling the live states of the matter. Original image analysis methods are then required to process challenging 2D or 3D image sequences. Recently, tracking methods that estimate the whole trajectories of moving objects have been successfully developed. In this paper, we address rather the detection of meaningful events in spatio-temporal fluorescence image sequences, such as apparent stable stocking areas involved in membrane transport. We propose an original patch-based Markov modeling to detect spatial irregularities in fluorescence images with low false alarm rates. This approach has been developed for real image sequences of cells expressing XFP-tagged Rab proteins, known to regulate membrane trafficking.
Our other large Zeiss epifluorescent microscope is the Zeiss Axiophot. In addition to fluorescence microscopy, this microscope is also used for phase contrast and differential interference contrast (DIC) microscopy. Though it is an older scope, it was recently outfitted with a modern digital Zeiss AxioCam MR camera and utilizes the same Zen software as the new Axio Imager 2. Phase contrast and DIC microscopy allow for observation of unstained, live cells and structures. For fluorescent microscopy, this microscope utilizes a Zeiss XBO 75 (75W xenon arc lamp) and HBO 100 (100W mercury arc lamp)..

2. What did the paper show that normal microscopy could not show. In this paper Schermelleh et al. noted that although normal fluorescence light microscopy permits the cellular components to be visualised in various colours, it is limited in providing adequate resolution. They overcame this problem by applying the use of 3D-SIM. In this paper they use it to study the mammalian nucleus. In particular, with the use of 3D-SIM they were able to resolve single NPCs[1], differentially localize distinct NPC components[2] and detect double-layered invaginations of the nuclear envelope[3], all of which would not be possible with the use of conventional microscopy. Schermelleh et al. notes that the use 3D-SIM will allow for a greater exploration of the subcellular structures beyond the diffraction limit of the emitted light[4] Subdiffraction multicolor imaging of the nuclear periphery with 3D structured illumination microscopy. --Z3254598 00:52, 22 March 2012 (EST) ...
This course will cover the theory and practical application of current super-resolution microscopy techniques to biological questions.
We introduce a method for correlative in-resin super-resolution fluorescence and electron microscopy (EM) of biological structures in mammalian culture cells. Cryo-fixed resin embedded samples offer superior structural preservation, performing in-resin super-resolution, however, remains a challenge. We identified key aspects of the sample preparation procedure of high pressure freezing, freeze substitution and resin embedding that are critical for preserving fluorescence and photo-switching of standard fluorescent proteins, such as mGFP, mVenus and mRuby2. This enabled us to combine single molecule localization microscopy with transmission electron microscopy imaging of standard fluorescent proteins in cryo-fixed resin embedded cells. We achieved a structural resolution of 40-50 nm (~17 nm average single molecule localization accuracy) in the fluorescence images without the use of chemical fixation or special fluorophores. Using this approach enabled the correlation of fluorescently labeled ...

Repulsive guidance molecules (RGMs) control crucial processes including cell motility, adhesion, immune-cell regulation and systemic iron metabolism. RGMs signal via the neogenin (NEO1) and the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) pathways. Here, we report crystal structures of the N-terminal domains of all human RGM family members in complex with the BMP ligand BMP2, revealing a new protein fold and a conserved BMP-binding mode. Our structural and functional data suggest a pH-linked mechanism for RGM-activated BMP signaling and offer a rationale for RGM mutations causing juvenile hemochromatosis. We also determined the crystal structure of the ternary BMP2-RGM-NEO1 complex, which, along with solution scattering and live-cell super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, indicates BMP-induced clustering of the RGM-NEO1 complex. Our results show how RGM acts as the central hub that links BMP and NEO1 and physically connects these fundamental signaling pathways. Repulsive guidance molecule is a structural ...
Extraordinary transmission based axial imaging (EOT-AIM) for cell microscopy is reported. EOT-AIM uses linear arrays of nanoapertures, each of which samples target fluorescence up to a preset axial distance from surface, in combination with wide-field microscopy for acquisition of lateral images. Current design of nanoapertures provides EOT-AIM with axial super-resolution that is as small as 20 nm for a depth range of 500 nm. Experiments were performed for the measurement of the axial distribution of ganglioside in mouse macrophage (RAW264.7) cells using FITC-conjugated cholera toxin subunit B. The results were successfully confirmed with conventional confocal and total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy. ...

Recently implemented fluorescence imaging techniques, such as total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy and two-photon laser scanning micro-scopy, have made possible multiscale analysis of the immune response from single molecules in an interface to cells moving in lymphoid tissues and tumors. In this review, we consider components of T cell sensitivity: the immunological synapse, the coordination of migration, and antigen recognition in vivo. Potency, dose, and detection threshold for peptide-MHC determine T cell sensitivity. The immunological synapse incorporates T cell receptor microclusters that initiate and sustain signaling, and it also determines the positional stability of the T cells through symmetry and symmetry breaking. In vivo decisions by T cells on stopping or migration are based of antigen stop signals and environmental go signals that can sometimes prevent arrest of T cells altogether, and thus can change the outcome of antigen encounters. © 2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin

Researchers measured times from cytokinesis to budding (G1) and from budding to cytokinesis in haploids, diploids or tetraploids (mothers and daughters), using time-lapse fluorescence microscopy of strains expressing Myo1 tagged with green fluorescent protein (Myo1-GFP). Standard methods were used throughout strain and plasmid constructions. All strains are W303-congenic. All integrated constructs were characterized by Southern blot analysis. Cells were prepared for time-lapse microscopy as described (Bean et al. 2006 PMID 16387649). Researchers observed growth of microcolonies with fluorescence time-lapse microscopy at 30?°C using a Leica DMIRE2 inverted microscope with a Ludl motorized XY stage. Images were acquired every 3?min for cells grown in glucose and every 6?min for cells grown in glycerol/ethanol with a Hamamatsu Orca-ER camera.

Impaired insulin secretion in type 2 diabetes (T2D) is linked to reduced insulin granule docking, disorganization of the exocytotic site, and impaired glucose-dependent facilitation of insulin exocytosis. We show in β cells from 80 human donors that the glucose-dependent amplification of exocytosis is disrupted in T2D. Spatial analyses of granule fusion events, visualized by total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy in 24 of these donors, demonstrated that these events are nonrandom across the surface of β cells from donors with no diabetes. The compartmentalization of events occurs within regions defined by concurrent or recent membrane-resident secretory granules. This organization, and the number of membrane-associated granules, is glucose dependent and notably impaired in T2D β cells. Mechanistically, multichannel Kv2.1 clusters contribute to maintaining the density of membrane-resident granules and the number of fusion hotspots, while SUMOylation sites at the channel N- (K145) ...

By surpassing Abbes diffraction limit, super-resolution microscopy (SRM) has opened the door to the visualization and the understanding of complex structures in the 1-100 nm range. SRM combines typical features of optical microscopy (low invasiveness, high penetration depth, high sensitivity, chemical specificity, straightforward sample preparation) with nanometer spatial resolution. Despite its widespread in cell-biology and bio-physics, SRM is still in its infancy for in-depth visualization of mesoscale features in man-made materials. At the VoetsLab, we use SRM techniques such as PAINT (point accumulation for imaging in nanoscale topography), PALM (photo-activatable localization microscopy) and STORM (stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy) to visualize in-situ structural composition, stability, exchange dynamics and growth direction of self-assembled architectures ranging from one-dimensional fibers to multi-dimensional colloids. By doing so, we aim for a more rational and ...
The assembly process of the human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) is driven by the viral polyprotein Gag. Fluorescence imaging of Gag protein fusions is widely performed and has revealed important information on viral assembly. Gag fusion proteins are commonly co-transfected with an unlabeled form of Gag to prevent labeling artifacts such as morphological defects and decreased infectivity. Although viral assembly is widely studied on individual cells, the efficiency of the co-transfection rescue has never been tested at the single cell level. Here, we first develop a methodology to quantify levels of unlabeled to labeled Gag in single cells using a fluorescent reporter protein for unlabeled Gag and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. Using super-resolution imaging based on photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM) combined with molecular counting we then study the nanoscale morphology of Gag clusters as a function of unlabeled to labeled Gag ratios in single cells. We show that for a ...
FtsZ is a tubulin-like GTPase that is the major cytoskeletal protein in bacterial cell division. It polymerizes into a ring, called the Z ring, at the division site and acts as a scaffold to recruit other division proteins to this site as well as providing a contractile force for cytokinesis. To understand how FtsZ performs these functions, the in vivo architecture of the Z ring needs to be established, as well as how this structure constricts to enable cytokinesis. Conventional wide-field fluorescence microscopy depicts the Z ring as a continuous structure of uniform density. Here we use a form of super resolution microscopy, known as 3D-structured illumination microscopy (3D-SIM), to examine the architecture of the Z ring in cells of two Gram-positive organisms that have different cell shapes: the rod-shaped Bacillus subtilis and the coccoid Staphylococcus aureus. We show that in both organisms the Z ring is composed of a heterogeneous distribution of FtsZ. In addition, gaps of fluorescence ...
The BD Accuri C6 flow cytometer can be used for a variety of experimental setups, such as 4-parameter cell phenotyping, apoptosis detection (which includes DNA fragmentation and analysis of mitochondrial membrane potential), bacterial and environmental sample analysis, plant ploidy, and cell cycle analysis in mammalian cells.. The system is easy to use and ideal for most novice flow cytometry users, as they can collect and analyse data in a short amount of time. Software options and instrument controls are clearly visible from the softwares tabbed interface which enables access to the collection, analysis, and statistics functions.. The BD Accuri C6 software allows for live gating, event colouring, export of publication-quality graphics, and batch analysis, for review or modification of multiple samples for the automatic creation of Microsoft PowerPoint® and Excel files.. This will allow more freedom to users as minimal assistance is required for running the instrument.. ...
Fluorescent microscopy is a technique where a lower wavelength of light is applied to a sample, but only the light emitted at a higher wavelength is detected. Fluorescent microscopy allows for the sensitive visualization of fluorescent molecules against a dark background. Let Protein Mods label your primary antibody, so you can avoid wasting time with secondary antibodies. In addition to services, Protein Mods offers a number of proteins modified with fluorescein, tetramethylrhodamine, and CY5.5 for your fluorescent microscopy needs.

Wide-field fluorescence microscopy is generally limited to either small volumes or low temporal resolution. We present a microscope add-on that provides fast, light-efficient extended depth-of-field (EDOF) using a deformable mirror of update rate 20kHz. Out-of-focus contributions in the raw EDOF images are suppressed with a deconvolution algorithm derived directly from the microscope 3D optical transfer function. Demonstrations of the benefits of EDOF microscopy are shown with GCaMP-labeled mouse brain tissue ...
