Super-resolution microscopy with DNA molecules

À propos de cet évènement

About the speaker:

Ralf Jungmann is professor for experimental biophysics at the LMU and Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry. Jungmann’s team combines tools from structural and dynamic DNA nanotechnology with single-molecule fluorescence methods specifically designed for the development and application of high-resolution microscopy techniques.

Abstract:

Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool for biological research. We use the transient binding of short fluorescently labeled oligonucleotides (DNA-PAINT) for easy-to-implement multiplexed super-resolution imaging that technically achieves sub-5-nm spatial resolution. To translate this resolution to cellular imaging, we introduce Slow Off-rate Modified Aptamers (SOMAmers) as efficient and quantitative labeling reagents. We demonstrate the achievable image resolution and specificity by labeling and imaging of transmembrane as well as intracellular targets in fixed and live cell-specimen.

While DNA-bases super-resolution allows high spatial resolution and spectrally unlimited multiplexing capabilities, image acquisition is slow compared to most other approaches. We recently overcame this limitation by designing optimized DNA sequences and repetitive sequence motifs. We achieve 100-fold faster imaging speeds without compromising image quality or spatial resolution. This improvement now makes DNA-PAINT applicable to high-throughput studies.
