Product information "MitoROS(TM) 580"
Ex: 510 nm. Em: 580 nm. Soluble in: DMSO. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen. Examples include superoxide, hydroxyl radical, singlet oxygen and peroxides. ROS is highly reactive due to the presence of unpaired valence shell electrons. ROS forms as a natural byproduct of the normal metabolism of oxygen and have important roles in cell signaling and homeostasis. However, during times of environmental stress (e.g., UV or heat exposure), ROS levels can increase dramatically. This may result in significant damage to cell structures. Cumulatively, this is known as oxidative stress. MitoROST 580 is a superoxide-sensitive dye that is localized mitochondria upon loading into live cells. Oxidation of MitoROST 580 by superoxide generates red fluorescence. MitoROST 580 can be used for monitoring superoxide in mitochondria either with a fluorescence microscope or a fluorescence flow cytometer. MitoROST 580 reagent permeates live cells where it selectively targets mitochondria. It is rapidly oxidized by superoxide. It is less likely to be oxidized by other reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS). The oxidized product is highly fluorescent in cells. MitoROST 580 provides a valuable tool for investigating oxidative stress in various pathologies.
