报告摘要:

Mitochondria–lysosome interactions including contact (MLC) and fusion (mitophagy) are essential for maintaining intracellular homeostasis. Defective mitochondria-lysosome interactions often associate with neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Mitochondria and lysosomes form dynamic inter-organelle membrane contact sites, mediate inter-organelle transfer of metabolites, and contribute to the pathogenesis in diseases linked to dysfunction of both organelles. Although various fluorescent probes have been developed for visualization of mitochondria–lysosome interaction, they lack the capacity of simultaneous labeling of mitochondria and lysosomes and dynamic tracking of their interaction.

Herein, we introduce a cellular permeable, biocompatible, viscosity-responsive small organic molecular probe, Coupa, to stain mitochondria and lysosomes simultaneously and monitor the interaction of mitochondria and lysosomes in living cells. Under normal physiological conditions, Coupa attaches to lysosomes and emits red fluorescence (Coupa-lyso). When exposed to reactive sulfur species in mitochondria, Coupa is biomodified into a new compound that emits blue fluorescence (Coupa-mito). Using structured illumination microscopy, we showed that Coupa dyes are capable to report the functional interactions of mitochondria and lysosomes in mitophagy process through co-localization and correlated fluorescence change. Dual-color labeling of Coupa dyes induced by functional fluorescence conversion can avoid false position induced by co-localization of two traditional dyes only. Moreover, we demonstrated that the viscosity-sensitive Coupa precisely localizes the MLC sites through reporting local viscosity change on mitochondria. With good cell permeability, non-toxicity, and excellent photobleaching resistance, Coupa could lead to new insights into the dynamic nature of mitochondria-lysosome interactions in living cells.
