Two-Photon Fluorescence Lysosomal Bioimaging with a Micelle-Encapsulated Fluorescent Probe.
Summary of "Two-Photon Fluorescence Lysosomal Bioimaging with a Micelle-Encapsulated Fluorescent Probe."
We report two-photon fluorescence microscopy (2PFM) imaging and in vitro cell viability of a new, efficient, lysosome-selective system based on a two-photon absorbing (2PA) fluorescent probe (I) encapsulated in Pluronic® F-127 micelles. Preparation of dye I was accomplished via microwave-assisted synthesis, resulting in improved yields and reduced reaction times. Photophysical characterization revealed notable 2PA efficiency of this probe.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
A type of FLUORESCENCE SPECTROSCOPY using two FLUORESCENT DYES with overlapping emission and absorption spectra, which is used to indicate proximity of labeled molecules. This technique is useful for studying interactions of molecules and PROTEIN FOLDING.
Test for tissue antigen using either a direct method, by conjugation of antibody with fluorescent dye (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, DIRECT) or an indirect method, by formation of antigen-antibody complex which is then labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, INDIRECT). The tissue is then examined by fluorescence microscopy.
A type of IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION in which target sequences are stained with fluorescent dye so their location and size can be determined using fluorescence microscopy. This staining is sufficiently distinct that the hybridization signal can be seen both in metaphase spreads and in interphase nuclei.
Protein analogs and derivatives of the Aequorea victoria green fluorescent protein that emit light (FLUORESCENCE) when excited with ULTRAVIOLET RAYS. They are used in REPORTER GENES in doing GENETIC TECHNIQUES. Numerous mutants have been made to emit other colors or be sensitive to pH.
