Sammanfattning

Cancer cells often have an increased amount of glycans, such as sialic acid (SA), on the cell surface, which normally play an important role in cell growth, proliferation and differentiation. In this study, SA expression is determined by fluorescent nanoprobes, molecularly imprinted polymers, SA-MIPs. The nanoprobes are synthesized with an imprinting approach to produce tailor-made fluorescent core-shell particles with high affinity for cell surface SA. Inflammation and cytokine production are well known tumor promoters, modulating the cellular microenvironment, including an aberrant cell surface glycan pattern. The recombinant cytokines IL-4, IL-6, IL-8 and a cocktail of cytokines collected from stimulated T leukemia Jurkat cells were used to induce in vitro inflammation in two cell lines, and thereafter analyzed with the use of SA-MIPs and flow cytometry. One of the cell lines showed a different binding pattern of SA-MIPs after treatment with recombinant cytokines and the cytokine cocktail. This study shows that SA-MIPs can be an important tool in the investigation of overexpressed glycans in the tumor microenvironment.
