Real-time Temperature Measurements of HMEC-1 Cells during Inflammation Production and Repair detected by Wireless Thermometry

Cell inflammation process is reflected through real-time in situ cellular temperature changes. A wireless thermometry system for in situ cellular temperature measurements was used in an incubator to detect the HMEC-1 cellular temperature under lipopolysaccharide inflammation production and norepinephrine for inflammation repair. Combining the changes in cell viability, inflammatory factor levels and ATP content caused by different lipopolysaccharide or norepinephrine doses, an obvious inflammatory response and repair effect was obtained. Temperature variations were correlated with ATP content. An obvious inflammatory response with a lipopolysaccharide concentration of 0.1 mg/L and an optimal repair effect with 1 μM norepinephrine were obtained. The relationship between temperature changes and ATP content were quite different during the production of inflammation in HMEC-1 cells, having an approximately linear relationship, while under conditions of inflammation repair in HMEC-1 cells, there was an obvious nonlinear relationship. During cell damage, cell thermogenesis has a linear correlation with intracellular energy. While during cell repair, there is a gradual saturation relationship between the temperature (small range) and ATP, which may be because the thermogenesis capacity of the cell is enhanced compared to conditions during cell energy storage. Additionally, there is an optimal drug concentration for cell action during cell injury and cell repair, which is not dose-dependent. Whether in inflammation production or treatment, there is an optimal drug concentration. The relationship between cell thermogenesis and intracellular energy reserves is related to cell processes. Quick analysis of the energy changes in different physiological process can be realized.
