- Test Principle
- An early indication of apoptosis involves a collapse in the electrochemical gradient across the mitochondrial membrane. Loss of mitochondrial membrane potential can be detected by a unique fluorescent cationic dye known as JC-1 (5,5’,6,6’-tetrachloro-1,1’,3,3’-tetraethylbenzamidazolocarbocyanin iodide) that has been incorporated into the MitoPT JC-1 kit.
The MitoPT JC-1 reagent easily penetrates cells and enters the mitochondria. It aggregates in the mitochondria of non-apoptotic cells and fluoresces red, whilst in apoptotic cells it diffuses throughout the cell. Once dispersed, the reagent assumes a monomeric form and fluoresces green. This allows an easy distinction between non-apoptotic red fluorescent cells and apoptotic green fluorescent cells which can be read with a flow cytometer, fluorescence microscope or a fluorescence plate reader using black microtitre plates.
- Store the unopened kit and each unopened component at -20°C until the expiration date. Once opened, some components may be stored at 2-8°C until the expiration date. CCCP should be stored frozen. Once reconstituted with DMSO, dilute and use MitoPT reagent immediately, or store at ≤-20°C for 12 months protected from light and thawed no more than twice.
- Guaranteed until date of expiry. Please see product label.
