Abstract
The current advances in fluorescence microscopy, coupled with the development of new fluorescent probes, make fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) a powerful technique for studying molecular interactions inside living cells with improved spatial and temporal resolution, distance range, and sensitivity and a broader range of biological applications. In recent years, a large number of studies have been conducted aiming to understand the process of apoptosis during tumor therapy on a molecular basis. Here, we utilized a recombinant FRET Bid probe to determine the kinetics of Bid cleavage during Cisplatin-induced apoptosis in ASTC-a-1 cells. Cells treated with Cisplatin (20 μM) showed a cleavage of the Bid-FRET probe, occurring at about 4-5 h after onset of the Cisplatin exposure, and lasted about 1.5 h. Our data clearly showed the kinetics of Bid cleavage during Cisplatin-induced apoptosis. We also used FRET technique to measure the dynamics of caspase-3 activation during apoptosis induced by high fluence low-power laser irradiation (LPLI). The data showed that we can detect caspase-3 activation sensitively and effectively, by using the FRET probe SCAT3.
