BACKGROUND Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) is a novel imaging technique that generates image contrast between different states of tissue due to differences in fluorescence decay rates. OBJECTIVES To establish whether FLIM of skin autofluorescence can provide useful contrast between basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and surrounding uninvolved skin. (More)
Optical imaging of tissue autofluorescence has the potential to provide rapid label-free screening and detection of surface tumors for clinical applications, including when combined with endoscopy. Quantitative imaging of intensity-based contrast is notoriously difficult and spectrally resolved imaging does not always provide sufficient contrast. We(More)
A set of different biophysical approaches has been used to explore the phase behavior of palmitoylsphingomyelin (pSM)/cholesterol (Chol) model membranes in the presence and absence of palmitoylceramide (pCer). Fluorescence spectroscopy of di-4-ANEPPDHQ-stained pSM/Chol vesicles and atomic force microscopy of supported planar bilayers show gel(More)
Multidimensional fluorescence imaging is a powerful molecular imaging modality that is emerging as an important tool in the study of biological tissues. Due to the large volume of multi-spectral data associated with the technique, it is often difficult to find the best combination of parameters to maximize the contrast between different tissue types. This(More)
High-speed (video-rate) fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) is reported using two different time-domain approaches based on gated optical image intensifier technology. The first approach utilizes a rapidly switchable variable delay generator with sequential image acquisition, while the second employs a novel segmented gated optical imager to acquire(More)
Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy is used to demonstrate that different loads applied to a muscle fiber change the microenvironment of the nucleotide binding pocket of myosin. Permeabilized skeletal muscle fibers in rigor were labeled with a fluorescent ATP analog, 3'-DEAC-propylenediamine (pda)-ATP(More)
We investigated the use of fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) of a fluorescently labeled ATP analog (3'-O-{N-[3-(7-diethylaminocoumarin-3-carboxamido)propyl]carbamoyl}ATP) to probe in permeabilized muscle fibers the changes in the environment of the nucleotide binding pocket caused by interaction with actin. Spatial averaging of FLIM data of(More)
UNLABELLED The HIV-1 glycoprotein 41 promotes fusion of the viral membrane with that of the target cell. Structural, biochemical, and biophysical studies suggest that its membrane-proximal external region (MPER) may interact with the HIV-1 membrane and induce its disruption and/or deformation during the process. However, the high cholesterol content of the(More)
Low-energy high-current ion implantation in silica at a well-controlled substrate temperature has been used to produce composites containing a large concentration of spherical Cu clusters with an average diameter of 4 nm and a very narrow size distribution. A very large value for the third-order optical susceptibility, x 510 esu, has been measured in the(More)
