Abstract

Postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) is the most serious and challenging complication following gastroenterological surgery. Activated pancreatic juice leaking from the organ remnant contains proteases that attack the surrounding tissue, potentially leading to severe inflammation, tissue necrosis, and fistula formation. However, it is difficult to observe pancreatic leakage during surgery and to evaluate the protease activity of leaked fluid at the patient's bedside. This report describes a protein nanocage-based protease ratiometric sensor comprising a pancreatic protease-sensitive small heat-shock protein (HSP) 16.5, which is a naturally occurring protein in Methanococcus jannaschii that forms a spherical structure by self-assembly of 24 subunits, and a chemically conjugated donor-acceptor dye pair for Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET). The HSP-FRET probe was constructed by subunit exchange of each dye-labeled engineered HSP, resulting in a spherical nanocage of approximately 10 nm in diameter, which exhibited very high stability against degradation in blood plasma and no remarkable toxicity in mice. The efficiency of FRET was found to depend on both the dye orientation and the acceptor/donor ratio. Pancreatic proteases, including trypsin, α-chymotrypsin, and elastase, were quantitatively analyzed by fluorescence recovery with high specificity using the HSP-FRET nanoprobe. Furthermore, the HSP-FRET nanoprobe was sufficiently sensitive to detect POPF in the pancreatic juice of patients using only the naked eye within 10 min. Thus, this novel nanoprobe is proposed as an effective and convenient tool for the detection of POPF and the visualization of activated pancreatic juice during gastroenterological surgery.
