When 2 fluorescent probes are brought into close proximity (,100 Å), they can undergo fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET).24 FRET between CFP-SERCA and YFP-PLB was detected by acceptor-selective photobleaching. Selective photobleaching of YFP by brief exposure to a focused spot of 514-nm laser illumination (Figure 2, arrow) resulted in a local increase in CFP fluorescence at the target site. A CFP-SERCA F/F0 ratio image (postbleach/prebleach) indicated that the 20% increase in the CFP-SERCA fluorescence was restricted to the target site (Figure 2). Donor enhancement after acceptor photobleaching is diagnostic of FRET.25 Before YFP photobleaching, CFP fluorescence was quenched by FRET and then destruction of YFP relieved quenching of CFP donor. To quantify CFP-SERCA dequenching and subsequent processes, the cells were imaged with TIRF, which simplified the observation volume to an optical section of the near-basal region of the cell. A line-out across the targeted bleach region in an ...
In two-photon laser-scanning microscopy using femtosecond laser pulses, the dependence of the photobleaching rate on excitation power may have a quadratic, cubic or even biquadratic order. To date, there are still many open questions concerning this so-called high-order photobleaching. We studied the photobleaching kinetics of an intrinsic (enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein (eGFP)) and an extrinsic (Hoechst 33342) fluorophore in a cellular environment in two-photon microscopy. Furthermore, we examined the correlation between bleaching and the formation of reactive oxygen species. We observed bleaching-orders of three and four for eGFP and two and three for Hoechst increasing step-wise at a certain wavelength. An increase of reactive oxygen species correlating with the bleaching over time was recognized. Comparing our results to the mechanisms involved in intracellular ablation with respect to the amount of interacting photons and involved energetic states, we found that a low-density plasma is ...
We report the development and analysis of a velocimetry technique based on the short time displacement of molecular tracers, tagged thanks to photobleaching. We use confocal microscopy to achieve a good resolution transverse to the observation field in the direction of the velocity gradient. The intensity profiles are fitted by an approximate analytical model which accounts for hydrodynamic dispersion, and allow access to the local velocity. The method is validated using pressure driven flow in microfluidic slits having a thickness of a few tens of micrometers. We discuss the main drawbacks of this technique which is an overestimation of the velocity close to the walls due to the combination of molecular diffusion and shear. We demonstrate that this error, limited to a near wall region of a few micrometers thick, could be controlled by limiting the diffusion of fluorophore molecules or minimizing the bleaching time. The presented technique could be combined with standard particle imaging ...

The diffraction patterns of fixed fluorophores are characteristic of the orientation of the molecules underlying dipole. Fluorescence localization microscopy techniques such as PALM and STORM achieve super-resolution by sequentially imaging sparse subsets of fluorophores, which are localized by means of Gaussian-based localization. This approach is based on the assumption of isotropic emitters, where the diffraction pattern corresponds to a section of the point spread function. Applied to fixed fluorophores, it can lead to an estimation bias in the range of 5-20nm. We introduce a method for the joint estimation of position and orientation of single fluorophores, based on an accurate image formation model expressed as a 3-D steerable filter. We demonstrate experimental estimation accuracies of 5 nm for position and 2 degrees for orientation. Geissbühler, Stefan; Aguet, François; Märki, Iwan; Lasser, Theo

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 ...

A comparison of FRAP in spiny and nonspiny regions showed that AMPAR movement was slower in spines [Ashby et al. (2006), their Table 1 (http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/26/26/7046/T1)]. The slow diffusion rate of AMPARs on the spiny membrane could be attributable to special spine structures. To test this hypothesis, the authors focused on the narrow neck region of spines and monitored fluorescence loss in photobleaching from adjacent regions of the spine head. If the neck region acts as a barrier to AMPAR diffusion, one would expect a different time course of fluorescence loss between neck and head. Indeed, continually bleaching the spine head caused rapid fluorescence loss in regions adjacent to the spine head. In contrast, spine necks showed a relatively slow loss of fluorescence [Ashby et al. (2006), their Fig. 4A (http://www.jneurosci.org/cgi/content/full/26/26/7046/F4)], suggesting a role for the spine neck in restricting lateral diffusion of AMPARs.. If narrow spine necks actually ...

We investigate the limits of one-photon fluorescence as a contrast mechanism in nanoscale-resolution tip-enhanced optical microscopy. Specifically, we examine the magnitude of tip-induced signal enhancement needed to resolve individual fluorophores within densely-packed ensembles. Modulation of fluorescence signals induced by an oscillating tip followed by demodulation with a lock-in amplifier increases image contrast by nearly two orders of magnitude. A theoretical model of this simple modulation/demodulation scheme predicts an optimal value for the tip-oscillation amplitude that agrees with experimental measurements. Further, as an important step toward the eventual application of tip-enhanced fluorescence microscopy to the nanoscale structural analysis of biomolecular systems, we show that requisite signal enhancement factors are within the capabilities of commercially available silicon tips.. ©2008 Optical Society of America.

Within the living cell, interacting proteins are assembled into molecular machines that function to control cellular homeostasis. These in vitro screening methods have the advantage of providing direct access to the genetic information encoding unknown protein partners. These techniques do not allow direct access to interactions of these protein partners in their natural environment inside the living cell, but the FRET microcopy method provides spatial and temporal resolution from single living cells. FRET microscopy relies on the ability to capture weak and transient fluorescent signals efficiently and rapidly from the interactions of labeled molecules in single living or fixed cells. The occurrence of FRET signal (sensitized signal) can be verified by acquiring the two-emission signal bands of the double labeled cells excited with donor wavelength. If FRET occurs the donor channel signal will be quenched and the acceptor channel signal will be sensitized or increased. In principle, the ...

Intracellular membrane traffic is an essential component of the membrane remodeling that supports lamellipodium extension during cell adhesion. The membrane trafficking pathways that contribute to cell adhesion have not been fully elucidated, but recent studies have implicated SNARE proteins. Here, the functions of several SNAREs (SNAP23, VAMP3, VAMP4 and syntaxin13) are characterized during the processes of cell spreading and membrane ruffling. We report the first description of a SNARE complex, containing SNAP23, syntaxin13 and cellubrevin/VAMP3, that is induced by cell adhesion to an extracellular matrix. Impairing the function of the SNAREs in the complex using inhibitory SNARE domains disrupted the recycling endosome, impeded delivery of integrins to the cell surface, and reduced haptotactic cell migration and spreading. Blocking SNAP23 also inhibited the formation of PMA-stimulated, F-actin-rich membrane ruffles; however, membrane ruffle formation was not significantly altered by inhibition of

In mid-1823, Professor Rasmussen gave Abel a gift of 100 speciedaler so he could travel to Copenhagen and visit Ferdinand Degen and other mathematicians there. While in Copenhagen, Abel did some work on Fermats Last Theorem. Abels uncle, Peder Mandrup Tuxen, lived at the naval base in Christianshavn, Copenhagen, and at a ball there Niels Abel met Christine Kemp, his future fiancée. In 1824, Christine moved to Son, Norway to work as a governess and the couple got engaged over Christmas.[6]. After returning from Copenhagen, Abel applied for a government scholarship in order to visit top mathematicians in Germany and France, but he was instead granted 200 speciedaler yearly for two years, to stay in Christiania and study German and French. In the next two years, he was promised a scholarship of 600 speciedaler yearly and he would then be permitted to travel abroad.[6] While studying these languages, Abel published his first notable work in 1824, Mémoire sur les équations algébriques où on ...

The constituents of large, multisubunit protein complexes dictate their functions in cells, but determining their precise molecular makeup in vivo is challenging. One example of such a complex is the cellulose synthesis complex (CSC), which in plants synthesizes cellulose, the most abundant biopolymer on Earth. In growing plant cells, CSCs exist in the plasma membrane as six-lobed rosettes that contain at least three different cellulose synthase (CESA) isoforms, but the number and stoichiometry of CESAs in each CSC are unknown. To begin to address this question, we performed quantitative photobleaching of GFP-tagged AtCESA3-containing particles in living Arabidopsis thaliana cells using variable-angle epifluorescence microscopy and developed a set of information-based step detection procedures to estimate the number of GFP molecules in each particle. The step detection algorithms account for changes in signal variance due to changing numbers of fluorophores, and the subsequent analysis avoids common

GFP Variants Section- Louisa Since the revolutionary development of GFP, extensive research has been conducted with the aim of producing fluorescent proteins (FPs) which cover a broader colour spectrum. These colour mutant FPs are also being genetically engineered to exhibit faster maturation rates, greater photostability, increased brightness, pH insensitivity and reduced oligomerisation and toxicity (Shaner et al. 2007, Shaner et al. 2005). Blue Enhanced BFP (EBFP) was one of the first spectral variants engineered from Aquorea GFP, but due to its low brightness and poor photostability it is now unappealing for most research (Shaner, 2007). New blue Aquorea GFP variants Azurite, SBFP2 and EBFP2 show improved brightness and photostability in comparison to EBFP, offering a promising means of imaging live cells in this region (Ai et al., 2007 & Kremers et al. 2007).

The first step of our analysis is through the Cartan equivalence method, then we use techniques from representation theory; this latter mean allows us to exhibit an affine connection and hence a covariant derivative on the space of differential invariants of the Abel equation. In the context of Abel equation, this affine connection is similar to... ...
