Antibody-based Biosensors for QDs

Antibodies are immunoglobulins produced by antigenic stimuli and have specificity and affinity to recognize and defend against pathogens in the immune system. Using antibodies as recognition elements for biosensors, a single antibody molecule can be attached to multiple QDs to enhance the dipole interactions between particles. The QDs-antibody conjugates can then be used as probes to specifically recognize and bind pathogenic bacteria, and the optical signal of QDs to bacteria is used for qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Yang et al. first used carboxyl-functionalized graphene QDs (CF GQDs) as fluorescent markers for optical imaging and sensing of E. coli O157: H7. They covalently combined E. coli O157: H7 antibodies with water-soluble CF GQDs to obtain CF GQDs immunofluorescent probes, which can improve the specificity of detection. The biosensor can produce an intense fluorescent signal with a minimum detection limit of 100 CFU/mL.

Fluorescence Imaging

Wang et al. reported a novel lipid-coated upconversion nanoparticle consisting of an upconversion nanocrystal core and a targeted lipid polymer shell for simultaneous NIR-triggered photodynamic therapy and cellular imaging. The UCN core acts as a transducer to convert deep penetrating NIR light to visible light for simultaneous activation of photosensitizers and cellular fluorescence imaging. The amphiphilic lipid polymer RGD peptide conjugated poly(maleic anhydride-1-octadecene) grafted with dioleoyl l-α-phosphatidylethanolamine (RGD-PMAO-DOPE) acts as a shielding agent. It protects the system from being caught by RES and locks the entire system at the site of the lesion. Drug loading can reach 9%. After NIR irradiation, MC540 is activated and successfully generates singlet state oxygen (ROS) through upconversion fluorescence emitted by UCN. Furthermore, UCN/RGD-PMAO-DOPE nanoparticles loaded with MC540 showed significant inhibitory effects on tumor cells after NIR irradiation. The data suggest that MC540-loaded UCN/RGD-PMAO-DOPE nanoparticles may be a useful nanoplatform for future PDT treatment of deep-seated cancers.
