Abstract
Raman spectral imaging provides the means to study spatially localized response to controlled external perturbations to tissue specimens with light microscopy resolution. We discuss use of heparin-acrylic microbeads soaked with the protein fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF2). Microbeads containing FGF2 are placed in murine calvarial tissue and stimulate abnormally rapid mineralization. The tissue response simulated the effects of craniosynostosis, a birth defect occurring in 1 in 2400 live births. We describe Raman imaging measurements of the spatial distribution of apatitic mineral and matrix (predominantly type I collagen) from normal murine calvarial tissue and murine calvarial tissue modeling craniosynostosis. We also discuss spectroscopic evaluation of the state of the mineral induced by the FGF2 beads.
