Caudal-type homeobox 2 (.Cdx2) transcription factor is an essential regulator of differentiation to the intestinal epithelium, somatic mesoderm and trophectoderm function in the mouse. However, the regulation of Cdx2 in these processes is poorly understood. Separation of viable Cdx2 expressing cells during differentiation for downstream experiments is not possible due to its nuclear localization, limiting experimental possibilities and studying Cdx2 regulation. Here, we report generation of a Cdx2-mCherry knock-in reporter mouse embryonic stem cell line (TCMC), for modeling and studying in vitro differentiation of mESCs to intestinal epithelia, somatic mesoderm, and trophectoderm.

Luminescent materials possessing both the mechanoluminescence (MCL) and electroluminescence (EL) properties are the quest for sensing and optoelectronic applications. We report on the synthesis of a new tailor-made luminogen, 1,2-bis(4-(1-([1,1'-biphenyl]-4-yl)-2,2-diphenylvinyl)phenyl)-1,2-diphenylethene (TPE 5), using Suzuki coupling reaction with high yield. An aggregation-induced emission (AIE) active complex TPE 5 forms supramolecular spherical aggregates at the air-water interface of a Langmuir trough. As a consequence, a large enhancement of luminescence is obtained from the mono- and multilayer Langmuir-Blodgett films of TPE 5 owing to the AIE effect. The luminogen TPE 5 exhibits a reversible MCL response, displaying photoluminescence switching due to change in the crystalline states under external stimuli. The unique feature of luminescence enhancement upon aggregate formation is utilized for the fabrication of light-emitting diodes with low threshold voltage using supramolecular aggregates as the active layer. This work demonstrates an efficient strategy for obtaining controlled supramolecular aggregates of AIEgen with a potential in the dual applications of MCL and EL.

Amyloid protein fibrillation is associated with a variety of neurodegenerative and other diseases, and their efficient detection and monitoring can greatly advance early diagnosis and therapy. Herein, we report a fluorescent "switch-on" probe for the reliable detection and monitoring of amyloid fibrils. The probe consists of a peptide component for binding with amyloid structure and a color component with an aggregation-induced green emission property. This probe is nonfluorescent in the presence of amyloid forming monomer protein/peptide, but fluorescence "switch-on" occurs after binding with amyloid fibrils. Compared to conventionally used thioflavin T, this probe offers a high signal-to-noise ratio, which is unaffected by the quencher ion/nanoparticle. The proposed new probe has been used for the detection and monitoring of amyloid fibrils produced by a wide variety of amyloid protein/peptides and can be extended for in vitro diagnostic applications.

Four pyrene-vinyl-tetraphenylethylene based conjugated materials were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, NMR, and mass spectroscopy. The photophysical (including absorption, fluorescence, and fluorescence lifetime) and aggregation properties in tetrahydrofuran were investigated. The photophysical and aggregation behavior depends on the spacer, substituent, and also the architecture (mono or tetra-branched) of the molecule. The vinyl spacer mono-branched compound is aggregation induced emission (AIE) active (αAIE = ∼6). Vinyl spacer tetra-branched compounds are AIE inactive, but their emitting efficiency is good in both solution (Φfl = 63%) phase and in the aggregated state (Φfl = 43%). Phenylvinyl spacer tetra-branched compounds emit light strongly in solution (Φfl = 92%), but not in the aggregated state (Φfl = 8%). They are shown to be thermally stable and emit light in the green region (500-550 nm). The results of cyclic voltammetry measurements of these materials showed irreversible oxidation waves, and have high HOMO energy levels (-5.66 to -5.53 eV).
