Fluorescent lipids are a class of lipids molecules attached to a fluorophore as exemplified by DOPE-PEG-Fluor 647 (Figure 1). Ionizable, cationic, phospholipids, and PEG lipids are essential components used in delivery technologies such as liposomes and nanoparticles (LNPs). The fluorophore acts as an integral tool for labeling, visualizing cell membranes, and molecular diagnostics. Functionalized fluorophores can be employed in bioconjugation, fluorescent probes, and labeling of various biomolecules (antibodies, peptides, proteins, nucleotides, etc.).

Application of Fluorescent Lipids

Fluorescent lipids prove to be potent instruments for exploring biological membranes using microscopic methodologies. They have been effectively employed to investigate lipid bilayer permeability, cellular positioning, membrane dynamics, and molecular dynamics by observing fluorescence recovery (Filipe).

For example, Sela's team made significant strides in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease (PD). They employed brain-targeted liposomes (BTL) loaded with a monoclonal antibody (mAb) called SynO4. These BTLs, which utilize Cy3-DSPE and Cy5-DSPE fluorescent lipids, successfully crossed the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and were taken up by neurons. Within neurons, SynO4 reduced alpha-synuclein (AS) aggregation, enhancing neuronal viability. In vivo experiments demonstrated a sevenfold increase in brain antibodies, showcasing the potential of targeted nanotechnologies for PD treatment. The crucial roles of Cy3-DSPE and Cy5-DSPE were integral in synthesizing dye-labeled liposomes to deliver the therapeutic antibody SynO4 (Sela).
