Publication Detail
Imaging mitochondrial calcium fluxes with fluorescent probes and single- or two-photon confocal microscopy
Abstract
© 2018, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. The concentration of calcium ions in the mitochondria has been shown to affect its function, modulating respiratory activity at low levels and causing lethal damage at high concentrations. The rhodamine series of dyes can be used to measure mitochondrial calcium concentration, but the reliability of measurements depends upon correct partitioning of the dye within to the mitochondria. Methods are described to aid verification and quantification of the mitochondrial calcium concentration using single- or two-photon confocal microscopy. The method of linear unmixing to separate fluorescent signals based on either differing excitation or emission spectra is outlined and for the purposes of illustration is applied to the separation of rhod-2 signals originating from the dye within the mitochondria and nucleoli.
