Mitochondrial Permeability Transition:MitoPTTM JC-1 Kit

Mitochondrial Permeability Transition:MitoPT<sup>TM</sup> JC-1 Kit gallery image 1

Jurkat cells were stained with MitoPTTM JC-1 and viewed through a fluorescence microscope using a broad band path filter. Non-apoptotic cells exhibit red stained mitochondria (2 cells at the top). Apoptotic cells at varying stages of mitochondrial membrane potential appear green (3 cells at the bottom)

    • Preparing The Antibody
    • 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 MitoPTTM JC-1 kit.

      The MitoPTTM 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.
