Widely used technique which exploits the ability of complementary sequences in single-stranded DNAs or RNAs to pair with each other to form a double helix. Hybridization can take place between two complimentary DNA sequences, between a single-stranded DNA and a complementary RNA, or between two RNA sequences. The technique is used to detect and isolate specific sequences, measure homology, or define other characteristics of one or both strands. (Kendrew, Encyclopedia of Molecular Biology, 1994, p503)

Single-molecule anisotropy imaging. (1/1416)

A novel method, single-molecule anisotropy imaging, has been employed to simultaneously study lateral and rotational diffusion of fluorescence-labeled lipids on supported phospholipid membranes. In a fluid membrane composed of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine, in which the rotational diffusion time is on the order of the excited-state lifetime of the fluorophore rhodamine, a rotational diffusion constant, D(rot) = 7 x 10(7) rad(2)/s, was determined. The lateral diffusion constant, measured by direct analysis of single-molecule trajectories, was D(lat) = 3.5 x 10(-8) cm(2)/s. As predicted from the free-volume model for diffusion, the results exhibit a significantly enhanced mobility on the nanosecond time scale. For membranes of DPPC lipids in the L(beta) gel phase, the slow rotational mobility permitted the direct observation of the rotation of individual molecules characterized by D(rot) = 1.2 rad(2)/s. The latter data were evaluated by a mean square angular displacement analysis. The technique developed here should prove itself profitable for imaging of conformational motions of individual proteins on the time scale of milliseconds to seconds.  (+info)

Real-time imaging of the dynamics of secretory granules in growth cones. (2/1416)

Secretory granules containing a hybrid protein consisting of the regulated secretory protein tissue plasminogen activator and an enhanced form of green fluorescent protein were tracked at high spatial resolution in growth cones of differentiated PC12 cells. Tracking shows that granules, unlike synaptic vesicles, generally are mobile in growth cones. Quantitative analysis of trajectories generated by granules revealed two dominant modes of motion: diffusive and directed. Diffusive motion was observed primarily in central and peripheral parts of growth cones, where most granules diffused two to four orders of magnitude more slowly than comparably sized spheres in dilute solution. Directed motion was observed primarily in proximal parts of growth cones, where a subset of granules underwent rapid, directed motion at average speeds comparable to those observed for granules in neurites. This high-resolution view of the dynamics of secretory granules in growth cones provides insight into granule organization and release at nerve terminals. In particular, the mobility of granules suggests that granules, unlike synaptic vesicles, are not tethered stably to cytoskeletal structures in nerve terminals. Moreover, the slow diffusive nature of this mobility suggests that secretory responses involving centrally distributed granules in growth cones will occur slowly, on a time scale of minutes or longer.  (+info)

Affibody molecules have lately shown great potential as tools for in vivo molecular imaging. These small, 3-helical bundles, with their highly stable protein scaffold, are well suited for the often harsh conditions of radiolabeling. Their small size allows for rapid clearance from the blood circulation which permits the collection of images already within hours after injection. This thesis includes four papers aimed at engineering different variants of a HER2-binding Affibody molecule to enable effective and flexible radiolabeling and enhancing the molecular imaging in terms of imaging contrast and resolution.. In paper I an Affibody molecule was engineered to function as a multifunctional platform for site-specific labeling with different nuclides for radionuclide imaging. This was done using only natural amino acids, thereby allowing for both synthetic and recombinant production. By grafting the amino acid sequence -GSECG to the C-terminal of our model-protein, a HER2-binding Affibody ...
This thesis describes the fabrication, characterization, and application of radiolabeled multifunctional microspheres for Cerenkov luminescence imaging and targeting of angiogenesis in cancer and atherosclerosis. Cerenkov luminescence imaging has gained attention as a new type of molecular imaging modality for its potential to bridge optical imaging with nuclear imaging. The engineered microsphere design focuses on intensifying the Cerenkov luminescence emission and shifting the emission wavelengths toward the near-infrared for better penetration of light in biological tissue. This includes the use of a high-refractive index oil core that increases the intensity of Cerenkov luminescence by lowering the Cerenkov radiation energy threshold, as well as near-infrared quantum dots that can be optically excited by Cerenkov luminescence and generate higher-wavelength optical emission. In addition to signal enhancement of Cerenkov luminescence, the modification of the microsphere surface is addressed ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cerenkov luminescence imaging of αvβ6 integrin expressing tumors using 90Y-labeled peptides. AU - Satpati, Drishty. AU - Hausner, Sven H.. AU - Bauer, Nadine. AU - Sutcliffe, Julie. PY - 2014. Y1 - 2014. N2 - Cerenkov luminescence imaging (CLI) is an emerging preclinical molecular imaging modality that tracks the radiation emitted in the visible spectrum by fast moving charged decay products of radionuclides. The aim of this study was in vitro and in vivo evaluation of the two radiotracers, 90Y-DOTA- PEG28-A20FMDV2 (90Y-1) and 90Y-DOTA-Ahx- A20FMDV2 (90Y-2) (,99% radiochemical purity, 3.7 GBq/μmol specific activity) for noninvasive assessment of tumors expressing the integrin αvβ6 and their future use in tumor targeted radiotherapy. Cell binding and internalization in αvβ 6-positive cells was 90Y-1: 10.1 ± 0.8%, 50.3 ± 2.1%; 90Y-2: 22.4 ± 1.7%, 44.7 ± 1.5% with ,5% binding to αvβ6-negative control cells. Biodistribution studies showed maximum αvβ6- positive tumor ...
Background: Cerenkov luminescence imaging (CLI) provides a great potential for clinical translation of optical molecular imaging techniques through using clinical approved radiotracers. However, it is difficult to obtain the Cerenkov luminescence signal of deeper biological tissues due to the small magnitude of the signal. To efficiently acquire the weak Cerenkov luminescence, we developed an endoscopic Cerenkov luminescence imaging (ECLI) system to reduce the in vivo imaging depth with minimum invasion, and validated the system on small animal tumor models. Methods: For the ECLI system, the laparoscope was connected to a high sensitive charge-couple device (CCD) camera (DU888+, Andor, UK) by a custom made adapter. We conducted a series of in vitro and in vivo experiments by use of the system. In the in vitro experiment, the endoscopic luminescence images of the 18F-FDG with various activities in EP tubes were acquired using ECLI system, and the sensitivity was compared with conventional CLI ...
Leong-Poi and colleagues used monoclonal antibodies against murine αv or echistatin, a viper venom disintegrin containing the well known RGD (arginine-glycine-aspartic acid) sequence [8]. Antibody-bearing and echistatin-conjugated microbubbles exhibited high potential to image activated endothelium in subcutaneously implanted Matrigel plugs enriched with fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2). Microbubble retention inside the microvasculature was much higher as compared to non-targeted microbubbles, however, no significant differences in the retention of both types of targeted microbubbles were observed. Thus, monoclonal antibodies against murine αv and echistatin can be used for targeted imaging approaches.. In another study, Leong-Poi and colleagues applied echistatin-conjugated microbubbles to assess endogeneous and therapeutic arteriogenesis in a hindlimb ischemia model in rats [9]. They observed an increase in retention of integrin-binding microbubbles prior to a measurable increase in blood ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Sugar-based biopolymers as novel imaging agents for molecular magnetic resonance imaging. AU - Han, Zheng. AU - Liu, Guanshu. PY - 2019/7/1. Y1 - 2019/7/1. N2 - Sugar-based biopolymers have been recognized as attractive materials to develop macromolecule- and nanoparticle-based cancer imaging and therapy. However, traditional biopolymer-based imaging approaches rely on the use of synthetic or isotopic labeling, and because of it, clinical translation often is hindered. Recently, a novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST), has emerged, which allows the exploitation of sugar-based biopolymers as MRI agents by their hydroxyl protons-rich nature. In the study, we reviewed recent studies on the topic of CEST MRI detection of sugar-based biopolymers. The CEST MRI property of each biopolymer was briefly introduced, followed by the pre-clinical and clinical applications. The findings of these preliminary studies imply the enormous ...

Lundbeck divests preclinical research programs Two programs outside Lundbecks areas of focus are transferred to MindImmune Therapeutics, Inc. H. Lundbeck A/S (Lundbeck) further focuses its preclinical research pipeline with the divestment of two research programs to biotech company MindImmune Therapeutics, Inc. (MindImmune). In exchange for the programs, Lundbeck receives an equity interest in MindImmune as well as milestone payments and royalties according to the progression of the programs. The agreement follows Lundbecks strategy of focusing its efforts within four disease areas; depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimers disease and Parkinsons disease, for which the programs are not relevant. Per its strategy Lundbeck itself has therefore not prioritized further development of the programs, but the agreement ensures that these potential new treatments will now be brought forward. There will be no costs for Lundbeck associated with the future development of the programs. We focus on ...
Molecularly-targeted microbubbles (MBs) are increasingly being recognized as promising contrast agents for oncological molecular imaging with ultrasound. With the detection and validation of new molecular imaging targets, novel binding ligands are needed that bind to molecular imaging targets with high affinity and specificity. In this study we assessed a novel class of potentially clinically translatable MBs using an engineered 10th type III domain of human-fibronectin (MB-FN3VEGFR2) scaffold-ligand to image VEGFR2 on the neovasculature of cancer. The in vitro binding of MB-FN3VEGFR2 to a soluble VEGFR2 was assessed by flow-cytometry (FACS) and binding to VEGFR2-expressing cells was assessed by flow-chamber cell attachment studies under flow shear stress conditions. In vivo binding of MB-FN3VEGFR2 was tested in a transgenic mouse model (FVB/N Tg(MMTV/PyMT634Mul) of breast cancer and control litter mates with normal mammary glands. In vitro FACS and flow-chamber cell attachment studies showed ...

Backround Microcalcifications may provoke plaque rupture leading to acute cardiovascular events. However, the mechanisms that initiate arterial calcification remain obscure.. Methods and Results We tested the hypothesis that inflammation promotes osteogenesis in atherosclerotic plaques using in vivo molecular imaging in apoE−/− mice (n=40). A bisphosphonate-derivatized near-infrared fluorescent (NIRF) imaging agent (750 nm) visualized osteogenic activity that was otherwise undetectable by X-ray computed tomography. Flow cytometry validated target cells as osteoblasts. A spectrally distinct NIRF nanoparticle (680 nm) was coinjected to simultaneously image macrophages. Fluorescence reflectance mapping associated osteogenic activity with inflammation in aortas of apoE−/− mice. Intravital dual-channel fluorescent microscopy further monitored osteogenic changes in carotid plaques at 20 and 30 weeks of age and revealed that both macrophage burden and osteogenesis concomitantly increased during ...
Although the scientific community continues to combat male bias in preclinical research, representation of women in late-phase clinical trials has improved markedly in recent years.21 The National Institutes of Health initiative to increase the use of female organisms and cells in preclinical research ensures that the scientific community as a whole will grow to fully address the health of both men and women. A major obstacle to the incorporation of female animals into studies, however, has been the belief that the rodent estrous cycle would render the study of these animals prohibitively expensive or difficult. Our study shows for the first time in a single large data set of physiological measurements that this belief is not accurate.. Our findings show that sex differences in CV among rats are small despite hormone fluctuations because of the estrous cycle. Moreover, for the majority of phenotypes, cohorts larger than typically used in preclinical research are required to detect the sex ...
4. Developing imaging probes and methods for diabetes and obesity. In the past years, one of my research directions has been focused on the development of probes and technologies for Imaging of Metabolically Abnormal Degeneration (MAD) diseases, which include diabetes and obesity. Based on the structure of streptozotocin (STZ), a beta cell specific small molecule, we have developed two beta-cell specific NIRF probes. More recently, my research has been focused on imaging Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT), which is a re-emerged target for MAD diseases such as diabetes and obesity. However, highly selective imaging probe for BAT mass is still lack. For this project, my primary contributions include: 1) My research group discovered several NIRF probes suitable for imaging BAT mass through a top-down screening method (Manuscript under revision). 2) My group also demonstrated that Cerenkov Luminescence Imaging (CLI), a newly developed technology, could be used to image BAT with 18F-FDG. Compared to PET ...
Bioimaging is a term that covers the complex chain of acquiring, processing and visualizing structural or functional images of living objects or systems, including extraction and processing of image-related information. Examples of image modalities used in bioimaging are many, including: X-ray, CT, MRI and fMRI, PET and HRRT PET, SPECT, MEG and so on. Medical imaging and microscope/fluorescence image processing are important parts of bioimaging referring to the techniques and processes used to create images of the human body, anatomical areas, tissues, and so on, down to the molecular level, for clinical purposes, seeking to reveal, diagnose, or examine diseases, or medical science, including the study of normal anatomy and physiology. Image processing methods, such as denoising, segmentation, deconvolution and registration methods, feature recognition and classification represent an indispensable part of bioimaging, as well as related data analysis and statistical tools ...

Research focus. My ultimate ambition is to better understand immunosenescence and immune dysregulation over the trajectory of aging, and how these changes relate to compromised health and quality of life in old age. This is particularly important since over the next several decades the world will undergo an unprecedented increase in the proportion of adults over the age of 65. Hence, strategies to promote healthy aging will be critical to minimize the social and economic burdens that are normally associated with elder care. Implicit to this goal is a continual advancement of our understanding of the biology of aging. My research focus features a comprehensive approach that combines epidemiological techniques to identify inherent and modifiable risk factors of age-related disease and morbidity, and in vitro and ex vivo molecular methods to examine potential biological mechanisms. This approach often features immune and inflammation related soluble and cell-associated biomarkers that not only ...

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI) has established itself among the plethora of mass spectrometry applications. In the biomedical field, MALDI-MSI is being more frequently recognized as a new method for the discovery of biomarkers, targets of treatment, classification of diseased and healthy tissues or to predict the outcome of a pathology. The technology has been used to study the localization of proteolytic peptides directly on tissue sections. A direct correlation between the detected peptides and the distribution and identity of the original precursor protein is the ultimate goal of any MALDI-MSI experiment. Enzymatic digestion protocols are commonly used to reveal the protein signature of these complex tissues. Considerations that pertain to methods of sample preparation, on-tissue digestion, data analysis and visualization will be addressed. This review will also discuss selected applications of on-tissue digestion combined with the MALDI-MSI ...
The sulfation pathway has been shown experimentally to involve CYP2A6 aryl epoxide intermediates that are then converted to many unique glutathione products though GST enzymes. The chimeric animals demonstrate many of these conjugates both in wild-type and humanized strains.. Over the previous three year, the staff at Yecuris have run multiple experiments using lamotrigine as a probe substrate and have aggregated the data for illustrative purposes. The first sets of experiments involved the examination of the non-repopulated models (muFRG) to better understand what the baseline state of the models are. Wild-type C57Bl/6 and NOD male and female mice we compared against RG and FRG KO mice on the same strains and genders. No substantive differences were observed between any of the strains or genders, though we note that in other experiments with different compounds the immune deficient strains have demonstrated differences in physiological effect as compared to the wild-type controls. Here we ...
