Bailey D, Catron M, Kovtun O, Macdonald R, Zhang Q, Rosenthal S (2018) Single quantum dot tracking reveals serotonin transporter diffusion dynamics are correlated with cholesterol-sensitive threonine 276 phosphorylation status in primary midbrain neurons. ACS Chem Neurosci 9:2534-2541. doi: 10.1021/acschemneuro.8b00214 PMID: 29787674
Objective: Visualizing SERT behavior at the single molecule level in endogenous systems remains a challenge. The authors utilize quantum dot (QD) single particle tracking (SPT) to capture SERT dynamics in primary rat midbrain neurons.
Summary: Results provide new insights into endogenous neuronal SERT mobility and its associations with membrane cholesterol and SERT phosphorylation status.
Usage: Live Cell QD Tracking – Cells were incubated with 5 μg/mL primary SERT antibody in warm fluorescent media at 37 °C and 5% CO2 for 6 min.
