(CIT): Nobel Laureate to Give Fourth Annual Sayer Lecture, Hosted by NEI Roger Y. Tsien, Ph.D., winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2008, will deliver the fourth annual Sayer Vision Research Lecture on Wednesday, March 10 at 1 p.m. in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. His talk is titled: "Breeding and Building Molecules to Spy on Cells and Tumors." Dr. Tsien, an investigator and professor at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the University of California, San Diego, was awarded the Nobel Prize for his contribution toward the discovery and development of green fluorescent protein (GFP). His work has developed GFP into a tool used by researchers worldwide to analyze the movements, positions, and interactions of tagged proteins within cells. Recently, fluorescent proteins have been used to visualize synaptic circuits, allowing researchers to map glial territories and follow glial cells and neurons over time in vivo. Dr. Tsien"s research is at the interface of organic chemistry, cell biology, and neurobiology. He is best known for designing and building molecules that either report or perturb signal transduction inside living cells. Dr. Tsien is currently designing imaging and therapeutic molecules that specifically target cancer cells. The Sayer Vision Research Fund supports the annual Sayer Lecture, which is delivered by an investigator in the area of vision research. The Fund also supports the Sayer Vision Research Award, a grant-in-aid to a promising independent investigator in the early stage of his or her research career in the Division of Intramural Research at NEI. NIDDK research scientist Dr. Jane Sayer established the Fund at the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health in 2006 to honor her family and the memory of her parents, Winthrop and Laura Sayer.

Detection of Subclinical Arthritis in Mice by a ThrombinReceptor–Derived Imaging Agent( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Objective: Functional imaging of synovitis could improve both early detection of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and long‐term outcomes. Given the intersection of inflammation with coagulation protease activation, this study was undertaken to examine coagulation protease activities in arthritic mice with a dual‐fluorescence ratiometric activatable cell‐penetrating peptide (RACPP) that has a linker, norleucine (Nle)‐TPRSFL, with a cleavage site for thrombin. Methods: K/BxN‐transgenic mice with chronic arthritis and mice with day 1 passive serum‐transfer arthritis were imaged invivo for Cy5:Cy7 emission ratiometric fluorescence from proteolytic cleavage and activation of RACPPNleTPRSFL . Joint thickness in mice with serum‐transfer arthritis was measured from days 0 to 10. The cleavage‐evoked release of Cy5‐tagged tissue‐adhesive fragments enabled microscopic correlation with immunohistochemistry for inflammatory markers. Thrombin dependence of ratiometric fluorescence was tested by exvivo application of RACPPNleTPRSFL and argatroban to cryosections obtained from mouse hind paws on day 1 of serum‐transfer arthritis. Results: In chronic arthritis, RACPPNleTPRSFL fluorescence ratios of Cy5:Cy7 emission were significantly higher in diseased swollen ankles of K/BxN‐transgenic mice than in normal mouse ankles. A high ratio of RACPPNleTPRSFL fluorescence in mouse ankles and toes on day 1 of serum‐transfer arthritis correlated with subsequent joint swelling. Foci of high ratiometric fluorescence localized to inflammation, as demarcated by immune reactivity for citrullinated histones, macrophages, mast cells, and neutrophils, in soft tissue on day 1 of serum‐transfer arthritis. Ex vivo application of RACPPNleTPRSFL to cryosections obtained from mice on day 1 of serum‐transfer arthritis produced ratiometric fluorescence that was inhibited by argatroban. Conclusion: RACPPNleTPRSFL activation detects established experimental arthritis, and the detection of inflammation by RACPPNleTPRSFL on day 1 of serum‐transfer arthritis correlates with disease progression
Matrix-Metalloproteinases in Head and Neck Carcinoma–Cancer Genome Atlas Analysis and Fluorescence Imaging in Mice( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective: (1) Obtain matrix-metalloproteinase (MMP) expression profiles for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) specimens from the Cancer Genomic Atlas (TCGA). (2) Demonstrate HNSCC imaging using MMP-cleavable, fluorescently labeled ratiometric activatable cell-penetrating peptide (RACPP). Study Design: Retrospective human cohort study; prospective animal study. Setting: Translational research laboratory. Subjects and Methods: Patient clinical data and mRNA expression levels of MMP genes were downloaded from TCGA data portal. RACPP provides complementary ratiometric fluorescent contrast (increased Cy5 and decreased Cy7 intensities) when cleaved by MMP2/9. HNSCC–tumor bearing mice were imaged in vivo after RACPP injection. Histology was evaluated by a pathologist blinded to experimental conditions. Zymography confirmed MMP-2/9 activity in xenografts. RACPP was applied to homogenized human HNSCC specimens, and ratiometric fluorescent signal was measured on a microplate reader for ex vivo analysis. Results: Expression of multiple MMPs including MMP2/9 is greater in patient HNSCC tumors than matched control tissue. In patients with human papilloma virus positive (HPV+) tumors, higher MMP2 and MMP14 expression correlates with worse 5-year survival. Orthotopic tongue HNSCC xenografts showed excellent ratiometric fluorescent labeling with MMP2/9-cleavable RACPP (sensitivity = 95.4%, specificity = 95.0%). Fluorescence ratios were greater in areas of higher tumor burden ( P < .03), which is useful for intraoperative margin assessment. Ex vivo, human HNSCC specimens showed greater cleavage of RACPP when compared to control tissue ( P = .009). Conclusions: Human HNSCC tumors show increased mRNA expression of multiple MMPs including MMP2/9. We used RACPP, a ratiometric fluorescence assay of MMP2/9 activity, to show improved occult tumor identification and margin clearance. Ex vivo assays using RACPP in biopsy specimens may identify patients who will benefit from intraoperative RACPP use
