Abstract
To overcome the speed limitation in Raman imaging, we have developed a microscope system that detects Raman spectra from hundreds of points in a sample simultaneously. The sample was illuminated by a line-shaped focus, and Raman scattering from the illuminated positions was measured simultaneously by an imaging spectrophotometer. We applied the line-illumination technique to observe the dynamics of intracellular molecules during cellular events. We found that intracellular cytochrome c can be clearly imaged by resonant Raman scattering. We demonstrated label-free imaging of redistribution of cytochrome c during apoptosis and osteoblastic mineralization. We also proposed alkyne-tagged Raman imaging to observe small molecules in living cells. Due to its small size and the unique Raman band, alkyne can tag molecules without strong perturbation to molecular functions and with the capability to be detected separately from endogenous molecules.
