25 Nov 2014 Bioanalytical Pharmacology Core Offering Ratiometric Reporters

“The ratiometric reporter HyPer responds to levels of peroxide, such as produced by treatment of the worms with tert-butyl hydroperoxide (tBHP), in the cell by showing an increase in fluorescence when excited at 500 nm and a decrease in fluorescence when excited at 420 nm (A). These changes can be show by graphing the fluorescence […]
