In order to examine bystander effects in the 3D cell system, we have developed a FUCCI-HeLa spheroid system. FUCCI (Fluorescent Ubiquitination-based Cell Cycle Indicator) cells show specific colors of cell nuclei depending on a cell cycle. Thus we can easily trace cell cycle modifications by irradiation. We observed bystander cell-cycle delay as preliminary tests using monolayer culture of the HeLa-FUCCI cells. It will be very interesting to examine whether the cell-cycle effect also appears in the 3D cell system exposed to single high LET particles. We have determined suitable conditions for the spheroid culture, such as size of spheroids and methods of stable fixing a spheroid in a dish to perform the microbeam irradiation, and observation of the cell cycles of each cell in a spheroid after irradiation using a time-lapse micro-imaging technique.
