Summary of "Mn-doped ZnSe d-dots-based α-methylacyl-CoA racemase probe for human prostate cancer cell imaging."

In this paper, we report the successful use of non-cadmium-based Mn-doped ZnSe d-dots (Mn/ZnSe) as highly efficient and nontoxic optical probes for human prostate cancer cells imaging. Mn/ZnSe d-dots are directly prepared in aqueous solution. The α-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) is overexpressed in prostate cancers; the presence of antibodies specific for AMACR is more sensitive and specific than serum prostate specific antigen levels in distinguishing patients with prostate cancers. Mn/ZnSe d-dots were linked to anti-AMACR to form Mn/ZnSe d-dots-anti-AMACR bioconjugates for the direct prostate cancer cell imaging. 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2 and 5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide assay demonstrated that Mn/ZnSe d-dots exhibited favorable cytocompatibility to LNCaP cells with high concentration (1 mM) and long-time incubation (24 h). Furthermore, cellular imaging results demonstrated that Mn/ZnSe d-dots were remarkably efficacious for high-specificity cell imaging. The antibody-mediated delivery of the bioconjugates was further confirmed by the observation of no fluorescence signals in vitro targeting in nonprostate-cancer-based cell lines which are negative for AMACR. Mn/ZnSe d-dots as non-cadmium-based safe and efficient optical imaging nanoprobes could therefore be used for targeting imaging and treatment of cancers in the early stage.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.

A DNA amplification technique based upon the ligation of OLIGONUCLEOTIDE PROBES. The probes are designed to exactly match two adjacent sequences of a specific target DNA. The chain reaction is repeated in three steps in the presence of excess probe: (1) heat denaturation of double-stranded DNA, (2) annealing of probes to target DNA, and (3) joining of the probes by thermostable DNA ligase. After the reaction is repeated for 20-30 cycles the production of ligated probe is measured.

A type of scanning probe microscopy in which a probe systematically rides across the surface of a sample being scanned in a raster pattern. The vertical position is recorded as a spring attached to the probe rises and falls in response to peaks and valleys on the surface. These deflections produce a topographic map of the sample.

A numerical rating scale for classifying the periodontal status of a person or population with a single figure which takes into consideration prevalence as well as severity of the condition. It is based upon probe measurement of periodontal pockets and on gingival tissue status.

Identification and measurement of ELEMENTS and their location based on the fact that X-RAYS emitted by an element excited by an electron beam have a wavelength characteristic of that element and an intensity related to its concentration. It is performed with an electron microscope fitted with an x-ray spectrometer, in scanning or transmission mode.
