Abstract [en]

Molecular probes for imaging of live cells are of great interest for studying biological and pathological processes. The anionic luminescent conjugated polythiophene (LCP) polythiophene acetic acid (PTAA), has previously been used for vital staining of cultured fibroblasts as well as transformed cells with results indicating differential staining due to cell phenotype. Herein, we investigated the behavior of PTAA in two normal and five transformed cells lines. PTAA fluorescence in normal cells appeared in a peripheral punctated pattern whereas the probe was more concentrated in a one-sided perinuclear localization in the five transformed cell lines. In fibroblasts, PTAA fluorescence was initially associated with fibronectin and after 24 h partially localized to lysosomes. The uptake and intracellular target in malignant melanoma cells was more ambiguous and the intracellular target of PTAA in melanoma cells is still elusive. PTAA was well tolerated by both fibroblasts and melanoma cells, and microscopic analysis as well as viability assays showed no signs of negative influence on growth. Stained cells maintained their proliferation rate for at least 12 generations. Although the probe itself was nontoxic, photoinduced cellular toxicity was observed in both cell lines upon irradiation directly after staining. However, no cytotoxicity was detected when the cells were irradiated 24 h after staining, indicating that the photoinduced toxicity is dependent on the cellular location of the probe. Overall, these studies certified PTAA as a useful agent for vital staining of cells, and that PTAA can potentially be used to study cancer-related biological and pathological processes.

Abstract [en]

Luminescent conjugated polyelectrolytes (LCPs) can upon interaction with biological macromolecules change their luminescent properties, and thereby serve as conformation- and interaction-sensitive biomolecular probes. However, to exploit this in a more quantitative manner, there is a need to better understand the photophysical processes involved. We report studies of the conjugated pentameric oligothiophene, derivative p-FTAA, which changes optical properties with different p-FTAA concentrations in aqueous buffers, and in a pH and oxygen saturation dependent manner. Using dynamic light scattering, luminescence spectroscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, we find evidence for a monomer dimer equilibrium, for the formation of large clusters of p-FTAA in aqueous environment, and can couple aggregation to changed emission properties of oligothiophenes. In addition, we observe the presence of at least two dark transient states, one presumably being a triplet state. Oxygen was found to statically quench the p-FTAA fluorescence but also to promote molecular fluorescence by quenching dark transient states of the p-FTAA molecules. Taken together, this study provides knowledge of fluorescence and photophysical features essential for applying p-FTAA and other oligothiophene derivatives for diagnostic purposes, including detection and staining of amyloid aggregates.

Abstract [en]

Folding of an amino acid polypeptide chain into its native three-dimensional protein is a delicate process. Misfolding may cause assembly of dysfunctional proteins leading to aggregated assemblies, in medicine denoted amyloids, causing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson and a number of other protein related diseases. Amyloids have also shown promising results as building blocks in organic electronic applications, associated to conjugated polymers. Luminescent conjugated oligo- and polythiophenes (LCPs) have been further developed for biosensor applications exhibiting good ability to discriminate and determine different types of amyloid enrichment in complex environments, such as in tissue sections. The nature of interaction between the amyloid assemblies and LCPs is still not fully understood. In this study we use steady-state fluorescence spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering, transmission electron microscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy to follow the interplay between the anionic oligothiophene derivative 4',3'''-Bis-carboxymethyl-[2,2';5',2'';5'',2''';5''',2'''']quinque thiophene-5,5''''-dicarboxylic acid (p-FTAA), and prefibrillar protein assemblies present during the earlier stage of in vitro fibrillation of bovine insulin. Our findings confirm that p-FTAA interacts with pre-fibrillar species of insulin preceding the formation of mature insulin amyloid fibrils, and insights regarding the molecular interplay between p-FTAA and these species are provided.

Abstract [en]

Conjugated polyelectrolytes (CP) show interesting electrical and optical properties for organic electronics as well as for life science applications. Their possibilities of supramolecular assembly with nanowire like misfolded proteins, amyloids, as well as synthetic polypeptides or DNA forming conducting or luminescent nano composites is highly interesting as being a truly bottom up approach for fabrication of OLEDs, photovoltaic’s as well as logic devices. The conformation and aggregation dependent luminescence properties from the special class of CPs, Luminescent conjugated polyelectrolytes (LCP), have been utilised and developed as sensors to follow and study biomolecular interactions, DNA hybridisation, protein-protein interactions and staining of living cell cultures and tissue slides. In this thesis we are bringing the evolution a few steps further by applying new types of experimental techniques, such as light scattering and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, combined with standard techniques as soft lithography and different spectroscopy techniques, to gain better knowledge of the optical behaviour of LCPs and their interactions with biomolecules. We explore the optical properties and vibronic transitions of LCPs; their ability of resonance energy transfer with LCPs indicating super lightning behaviour; the opposite fluorescence shift when interacting with α-helical rich polypeptides compared to earlier reports of interactions upon staining of β-rich amyloids; and the possibility of LCPs to influence protein aggregation as well as the possibility of fabricating biochips based on LCPs and soft lithography. Here we also show fundamental limitations to patterning using macromolecular fluids, of general relevance to soft lithography and nanoimprint lithography with low viscosity polymers.

We show how to use well-defined conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) combined With Surface energy patterning to Fabricate DNA Chips utilizing A fluorescence signal amplification. Cholesterol-modified DNA strands in complex with it CPE are adsorbed to a surface energy pattern, formed by printing with soft elastomer stamps. Hybridization of the surface bound DNA strands with it short complementary strand from Solution is monitored using both fluorescence microscopy and imaging surface plasmon resonance. The CPEs act as antennas, enhancing resonance energy transfer to the dye-labeled DNA when complementary hybridization of the double strand occurs.

Abstract [en]

A strategy for fabrication of electroactive nanocomposites with nanoscale organization, based on self-assembly, is reported. Gold nanoparticles are assembled by a polypeptide folding-dependent bridging. The polypeptides are further utilized to recruit and associate with a water soluble conducting polymer. The polymer is homogenously incorporated into the nanocomposite, forming conducting pathways which make the composite material highly conducting.

Abstract [en]

Designed polypeptides with controllable folding properties are utilized as supramolecular templates for fabrication of ordered nanoscale molecular and fibrous assemblies of luminescent conjugated polymers (LCPs). The properties of the LCPs as well as the three dimensional conformation of the polypeptide-scaffold determine how the polymers are arranged in the supramolecular construct, which highly affects the properties of the hybrid material. The ability to control the polypeptide conformation and assembly into fibers provide a promising route for tuning the optical properties of LCPs and for fabrication of complex functional supramolecules with well defined structural properties.

Abstract [en]

The development of nanoelectronics has resulted in enormous advancements in fabrication techniques that have enabled massproduction of CMOS circuits with feature sizes below 45nm. There is a large interest in new methods to further push the size limits, lower the production costs and to facilitate the design of more advanced three-dimensional structures beyond today’s 2.5 dimensional architectures. Self-assembly is probably the most important scheme in this development and is currently applied to many different areas and classes of nanoelectronics. Self-assembly enables fabrication of structures well below 10 nm in feature size and allows for incorporation of novel nanomaterials, such as metallic and semiconducting nanoparticles with many interesting optical and electrical properties. The controlled self-assembly of electro-active nanocomposites is of great interest for the development of novel functional materials including biosensors, electrochromic/plasmonic hybrid devices, and polymer/nanoparticle-based memories.

Abstract [en]

Chemical polymerization of a 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene derivative bearing a sulfonate group (EDOTS) is reported. The polymer, PEDOT-S, is fully water-soluble and has been produced by polymerizing EDOT-S in water, using Na2S2O8 and a catalytic amount of FeCl3. Elemental analysis and XPS measurements indicate that PEDOT-S is a material with a substantial degree of self-doping, but also contains free sulfate ions as charge-balancing counterions of the oxidized polymer. Apart from self-doping PEDOT-S, the side chains enable full water solubility of the material; DLS studies show an average cluster size of only 2 nm. Importantly, the solvation properties of the PEDOT-S are reflected in spin-coated films, which show a surface roughness of 1.2 nm and good conductivity (12 S/cm) in ambient conditions. The electro-optical properties of this material are shown with cyclic voltammetry and spectroelectrochemical experiment reveals an electrochromic contrast (similar to 48% at lambda(max) = 606 nm).

Abstract [en]

The organization of conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) interacting with biomolecules sets conditions for the biodetection of biological processes and identity, through the use of optical emission from the CPE. Herein, a well-defined CPE and its binding to DNA is studied. By using dynamic light scattering and circular dichroism spectroscopy, it is shown that the CPE forms a multimolecule ensemble in aqueous solution that is more than doubled it? size when interacting with a small DNA chain, while single chains are evident in ethanol. The related changes in the fluorescence spectra upon polymer aggregation are assigned to oscillator strength redistribution between vibronic transitions in weakly coupled H-aggregates. An enhanced single-molecule spectroscopy technique that allows full control of excitation and emission light polarization is applied to combed and decorated;,DNA chains. It is found that the organization of combed CPE-lambda DNA complexes (when dry on the surface) allows considerable variation of CPE distances and direction relative to the DNA chain. By analysis of the polarization data. energy transfer between the polymer chains in individual complexes is confirmed and their sizes estimated.
