Abstract

Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm)-based temperature-responsive fluorescence polymer probes were developed using radical polymerization, with 3-mercaptopropionic acid as the chain-transfer agent, followed by activation of terminal carboxyl groups with N-hydroxysuccinimide and reaction with 5-aminofluorescein (FL). The lower critical solution temperatures (LCSTs) of the resulting fluorescent polymer probes differed depending on the copolymer composition, and had a sharp phase-transition (hydrophilic/hydrophobic) boundary at the LCST. The cellular uptakes of the fluorescent polymer probes were effectively suppressed below the LCST, and increased greatly above the LCST. In particular, the cellular uptake of a copolymer with N,N- dimethylaminopropylacrylamide, P(NIPAAm-co-DMAPAAm2%)-FL (LCST: 37.4 C), can be controlled within only 1 C near body temperature, which is suitable for biological applications. These results indicated that the cellular uptakes of thermoresponsive polymers could be accurately controlled by the temperature, and such polymers have potential applications in discriminating between normal and pathological cells, and in intracellular drug delivery systems with local hyperthermia.
