With the advent of next-generation sequencing technology, there is rapidly increasing interest in long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs). The objectives of this study were to develop a novel lncRNA MALAT1 near-infrared optical probe, to evaluate the characteristics of this optical imaging probe in vitro and to determine whether it can be used for imaging MALAT1 expression in malignant tumours in vivo. Conjugation of Cy5.5 to MALAT1 ASO was accomplished using standard NHS (N-hydroxysuccinimide) ester procedures, and the labelled MALAT1 ASO was purified with a Glen-Pak DNA Purification Cartridge and reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)...

Lipid based nanoparticles (LBNs) with excellent biocompatibility and versatility have received much attention from the drug delivery community recently. A detailed understanding of in vitro and vivo fate of LBNs is important for developing different types of LBNs with improved selectivity and low cytotoxicity. We developed a novel near-infrared (NIR) probe with high fluorescence, designated as DSPE-ir623 (iDSPE). Then, we prepared iDSPE-embeded liposomes (iLPs) with two different hydrodynamic sizes (∼100nm and ∼400nm) to evaluate the effect of particle size on cellular uptake and biodistribution of nanoliposomes in vivo...

Reporter proteins have broad applications in visualizing molecular events at the cellular, tissue and whole-body levels. Transmembrane transporters recognizing specific molecular domains are of particular interest because they enable the migration of signal-source molecules from the extracellular space to the cytoplasm for subsequent application in multimodality imaging. Organic anion-transporting polypeptides (OATPs) have demonstrated their MRI reporter efficacy. We further expanded their use as a dual-modality reporter in MRI and noninvasive in vivo imaging system (IVIS)...

Fluorescence imaging of biological systems down to the single-molecule level has generated many advances in cellular biology. For applications within intact tissue, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are emerging as distinctive single-molecule nanoprobes, due to their near-infrared photoluminescence properties. For this, SWCNT surfaces must be coated using adequate molecular moieties. Yet, the choice of the suspension agent is critical since it influences both the chemical and emission properties of the SWCNTs within their environment...

Surgeons have cited difficulties in identifying the parathyroid glands (PG) during thyroidectomy. To overcome the limitation of naked eye, many studies on near-infrared fluorescence imaging of PGs have been introduced and suggested that fluorescence imaging is useful for both localizing PGs and evaluating their function. This imaging technique has been reported in two ways: (I) imaging using a fluorescent material called indocyanine green (ICG); and (II) autofluorescence using intrinsic fluorophores. These innovative and novel techniques are expected to have a significant impact on performing thyroid or parathyroid surgery...

Luminescent bioprobes are powerful analytical means for biosensing and optical imaging. Luminogens featured with aggregation-induced emission (AIE) attributes have emerged as ideal building blocks for high-performance bioprobes. Bioprobes constructed with AIE luminogens have been identified to be a novel class of FL light-up probing tools. In contrast to conventional bioprobes based on the luminophores with aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) effect, the AIE-based bioprobes enjoy diverse superiorities, such as lower background, higher signal-to-noise ratio and sensitivity, better accuracy, and more outstanding resistance to photobleaching...

A near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent sensor 1 composed of an aza-boron-dipyrromethene (aza-BODIPY) core covalently bound to two di-2-picolylamine moieties was conceived for Cu(2+) detection in aqueous solutions. Spectroscopic properties and binding abilities with several metal ions were investigated in phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.4): acetonitrile (95 : 5 v/v) with Triton X-100 via fluorometric titrations. The fluorescence of sensor 1 was quenched selectively by cupric ions in the presence of alkali- and transition-metal-ions...

Doxorubicin (Dox) is approved for use in liposomal form for the treatment of ovarian cancer. We previously developed a long-circulating Dox formulation in liposomes containing small amounts of porphyrin-phospholipid, which enables on-demand drug release with near-infrared irradiation. In this study, we present and evaluate a dual-modal, dual-channel light endoscope that allows quantitative reflectance and fluorescence imaging for monitoring of local Dox concentrations in target areas. The endoscope consists of two flexible imaging fibers; one to transmit diagnostic and therapeutic light to the target, and the other to detect fluorescent and reflected light...

Near infrared photoimmunotherapy (NIR-PIT) is a newly-developed cancer treatment that induces highly selective immunogenic cell death. It is based on an antibody-photo-absorber conjugate (APC) that is activated by NIR light. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of NIR-PIT as measured by luciferase-luciferin photon-counting and fluorescence imaging. Six days after subcutaneous injection of A431-luc-GFP cells tumors formed in a xenograft mouse model. The EGFR-targeting antibody, panitumumab was conjugated to the photoabsorber, IRDye-700DX (pan-IR700) and was intravenously administered to tumor-bearing mice...

Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) can convert long wavelength excitation radiation in the near-infrared region to higher energy emission radiation from ultraviolet to near-infrared. The anti-Stokes luminescence process will result in high tissue penetration depth, low background noise and low photo-damage in bioimaging applications. Considering these excellent optical performances, UCNPs have been considered as the next generation of fluorescent probes for sensing and bioimaging based on near-infrared light stimulation...

Resistance to regular treatment strategies is a big challenge in the treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer. Combination of photothermal and photodynamic therapy (PTT/PDT) with chemotherapy offers unique advantages over monotherapy alone. However, free drugs, such as photosensitizers and chemotherapeutic agents, lack tumor-targeted accumulation and can be easily eliminated from the body. Moreover, most of the PTT drugs are hydrophobic and their organic solvents have in vivo toxicity, thereby limiting their potential in clinical translation...

Indocyanine green (ICG), a FDA approved near infrared (NIR) fluorescent agent, is used in the clinic for a variety of applications including lymphangiography, intra-operative lymph node identification, tumor imaging, superficial vascular imaging, and marking ischemic tissues. These applications operate in the so-called "NIR-I" window (700-900 nm). Recently, imaging in the "NIR-II" window (1000-1700 nm) has attracted attention since, at longer wavelengths, photon absorption, and scattering effects by tissue components are reduced, making it possible to image deeper into the underlying tissue...

To prevent bone metastasis, we developed polyethylene glycol (PEG)-conjugated aspartic acid (Asp)-modified liposomes (PEG-Asp-Lipo) as a bone-targeting carrier of paclitaxel (PTX) by using Asp-modified 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (DPPE-Asp). The affinity of Asp-modified liposomes to hydroxyapatite increased as the concentration of DPPE-Asp increased. The bone accumulation of [(3)H]-labeled PEG(2)-Asp(33)-Lipo was approximately 24.6% 360 min after intravenous injection in mice, in contrast to 5...
