The use of CypHer5E and the IN Cell Analyzer 1000 for live-cell receptor internalization studies

mperature for 15 min.

7. Add 50 µl Krebs-Ringer buffer containing EGF and incubate at 37 °C for 30 min.

8. Image on the IN Cell Analyzer 1000 (20× objective), exposure time 300 ms/field, 620 nm excitation and 700 nm emission for CypHer5E; exposure time of 500 ms/field 360 nm excitation and 535 nm emission for Hoechst.

9. Analyze the images using the Granularity Analysis Module.


Results
IN Cell Analyzer 1000 images of the live-cell β-2 adrenergic assay show agonist induced internalization of CypHer5E into acidic endosomes (Fig 1). Although trafficking destinations are dependent on the receptor, similar patterning was observed with the δ-opioid and EGF receptors (data not shown). In the absence of ligand activation by an agonist, there is very little cell-associated fluorescence (Fig 1a). Gray-scale images show a perinuclear clustering of fluorescent granules in the red channel, which results in an increase in the red signal intensity (Fig 1b). A fused image showing the nucleus (blue) and CypHer5E (red) signal demonstrates the juxtanuclear localization of CypHer5E, indicative of a recycling endosome compartment (Fig 1c).

Agonist-induced internalization of CypHer5E-labeled antibodies is concentration dependent. The internalization was quantitated using the IN Cell Analyzer 1000 Granularity Analysis Module. The analysis routine identifies, counts, and analyzes the grain-like CypHer5E fluorescent structures within cells. A sigmoidal dose response curve was obtained for each agonist by non-linear regression analysis. Dose response curves for the β-2 adrenergic, δ-opioid, and EGF receptors are shown in Figure 2. Calculated EC50 values are comparable to values previously obtained with CypHer5 dye and with other literature values (6).
