PSVue™ reagents are a family of fluorescent probes containing a bis(zinc2+dipicolylamine) group (Zn-DPA), a motif that has been found to bind with high affinity to surfaces enriched with anionic phospholipids, especially phosphatidylserine (PS) exposed on cell membranes. The fluorescent part of the probe is a reporter element that provides a means of detecting the probe once it is bound to the membrane of interest.
Key Features of PSVue™ Probes:
- Bind to a variety of cell types which have negatively charged phospholipids exposed on their membranes including apoptotic cells , necrotic cells , Gram + ve and Gram ? ve bacteria [3-5], activated cells, tumor vascular endothelial cells, viruses, etc.
- Available in a range of detection wavelengths from long-UV to near infrared.
- Suitable for in vitro and in vivo use.
- Suitable for high-throughput screening assays.
- Bind to the same PS site as annexin-V.
Advantages of PSVue™ over Fluorescent Annexin-V:
- Binding kinetics are fast; annexin-V binding is slow [6,7]
- Binding is Ca2+ independent; means no artifacts due to activation of nonspecific membrane scramblases by Ca2+ .
- Cheap compared to most annexin-V fluorescent analogs
- Apoptosis can be detected under a wide variety of conditions(e.g. in presence of 10% serum, temps from 4 to 37oC) .
- Can provide more intense labeling due to their much smaller size (i.e. >10 PSVue™ molecules can bind to the same area as 1 annexin V molecule) .
General Structure of PSVue™ Probes (Figure 1)
In Vitro Studies:
Several in vitro studies have shown that PSVue compounds stain the same apoptotic cells as fluorescently labeled annexin-V indicating that they are excellent small molecule mimics of annexin-V. An example using PSVue 794 is shown in Figure 2 .
Figure 2. Micrographs (60X magnification) of Jurkat cells, treated with cytotoxic camptothecin (10 µM) for 3.5 h and stained simultaneously with Annexin V conjugated dye (competitor A), and PSVue 794 (10 µM). Brightfield image of the entire field of cells (A); cells stained with Annexin V conjugated dye (competitor A) (B); cells stained with PSVue 794 (C); overlay of images A, B, and C (D). No staining of healthy cells was observed in the absence of camptothecin. (Images courtesy of Dr. Bradley Smith of University of Notre Dame)
Proposed Model of Membrane Binding [8,9]:
Figure 3 illustrates the 3 component assembly process that results in high affinity association of PSVue with PS-rich membranes. Under physiologic concentrations of Zn2+ the predominant coordination complex is the mono-zinc species (species A). The binding of species A to the anionic PS exposed membrane (species B) would promote the binding of the second Zn2+ with subsequent binding to the membrane forming a bivalently-bound species C. PSVue reagents are selective for membrane phosphates and do not stain the cytosol.
Selected In Vivo Studies:
The in vivo images below show that in animal models of prostate cancer (Figure 4) , mammary cancer (Figure 5)  and bacterial infections (S. aureus) (Figure 6) , PSVue™ targeted to the disease site.
Figure 4. X-ray and fluorescence overlay image of a rat prostate tumor model at 24 h postinjection of PSVue 794 (4.0 mg/kg) shows clear evidence of selective accumulation in the tumor. The image was acquired at a 190 mm field of view. (Image courtesy of Dr. Bradley Smith of University of Notre Dame)
Figure 5. Representative overlay image of a nude mouse with an EMT-6 mammary tumor. Brightfield and fluorescence intensity images were acquired 24h following injection of PSVue 794 and show clear evidence of selective accumulation in the tumor. The image was taken at a 80 mm field of view. (Image courtesy of Dr. Bradley Smith of University of Notre Dame)
Figure 6. Optical image of a mouse with a S. aureus infection in the left rear thigh muscle. Images were acquired before (A), and immediately following (B), iv injection of PSVue 794 and at 6h (C), 12h (D), 18 h (E) and 21 h (F). (Images courtesy of Dr. Bradley Smith of University of Notre Dame)
