NSP’s PLL-g-PEG was used in research for Long-Term Cell Fate Tracking of Individual Renal Cells Using Serial Intravital Microscopy.

Intravital multiphoton microscopy of the kidney is a powerful technique to study alterations in tissue morphology and function simultaneously in the living animal and represents a dynamic and developing research tool in the field. Recent technological advances include serial intravital multiphoton microscopy of the same kidney regions over several weeks and combined with ex vivo histology for cellular biomarker expression of the same cells, which had been subject to serial imaging before. Thus, serial intravital multiphoton microscopy followed by ex vivo histology provides unique tools to perform long-term cell fate tracing of the same renal cells during physiological and pathophysiological conditions, thereby allowing the detection of structural changes of the same renal cells over time. Examples include renal cell migration and proliferation while linking these events to local functional alterations and eventually to the expression of distinct cellular biomarkers. Recently a protocol for long-term cell fate tracking of individual renal cells was published using serial intravital microscopy. The authors provided a detailed step-by-step protocol to facilitate serial intravital multiphoton microscopy for long-term in vivo tracking of renal cells and subsequent ex vivo histology for immunohistological staining of the same cells in the fixed tissue.  Schiessl I.M., Fremter K., Burford J.L., Castrop H., Peti-Peterdi J.

NSP’s PLL-g-PEG used in research to develop non-fouling microporous membranes to alter cell-substrate behavior.

Porous membranes are ubiquitous in cell co-culture and tissue-on-a-chip studies. These materials are predominantly chosen for their semi-permeable and size exclusion properties to restrict or permit transmigration and cell-cell communication.  In a recent study, researchers fabricated micropatterned non-fouling polyethylene glycol (PEG) islands (based on PLL-g-PEI, Nanosoft Polymers)  to mimic pores in order to decouple the effect of surface discontinuity from grip provided by pore wall edges. Similar to porous membranes, they found that the PEG islands hindered fibronectin fibrillogenesis with cells on patterned substrates producing shorter fibrils. Additionally, cell migration speed over micropatterned PEG islands was greater than unpatterned controls, suggesting that disruption of cell-substrate interactions by PEG islands promoted a more dynamic and migratory behavior, similarly to cells
migrating on microporous membranes. Preferred cellular directionality during migration was nearly identical between substrates with identically patterned PEG islands and micropores, further confirming disruption of cell-substrate interactions as a common mechanism behind the cellular responses on these substrates. Interestingly, cell spreading and the magnitude of migration speed was significantly greater on porous membranes compared to PEG islands with identical feature size and spacing, suggesting pore edges enhanced cellular grip. These results provide a more complete picture on how porous membranes affect cells which are grown on them in an increasing number of cellular barrier and co-culture studies. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2019/02/28/563361.full.pdf.
