Abstract:
Directional sensing - the ability of a cell to detect chemical gradients with high precision - has been intensively studied in recent years by the use of fluorescent fusion proteins. A number of models have been proposed to describe the initial symmetry breaking in the sub-cellular pattern of signaling proteins. Further progress in this field will rely on experimental techniques to examine the theoretical predictions. This requires quantitative control of chemical stimuli on the length scale of individual cells, with a temporal resolution that matches the time scales of the intracellular signaling events. We combine microfluidic techniques with the photo-chemical release of caged signaling agents to expose single cells to well-defined stimuli with high spatial and temporal resolution. Gradients of well-controlled shape can be generated on micrometer length scales and sub-second switching times between different concentration profiles can be readily achieved. We apply this approach to quantify intracellular translocation of fluorescently labeled proteins in chemotactic Dictyostelium cells responding to complex stimuli with cAMP.
