PhenoVue 641 Mitochondrial stain is a fluorescent dye which accumulates in heathly mitochondria of live cells. It exhibits bright red fluorescence and is validated for use in imaging microscopy and high-content screening applications.
Part of PerkinElmer's portfolio of cellular imaging reagents, PhenoVue 578 Mitochondrial stain has a maximum excitation wavelength of 641 nm and a maximum emission wavelength of 662 nm, which makes it an alternative to the similar MitoTracker™ Deep Red FM.
PhenoVue 641 Mitochondrial stain is a cationic cyanine based structure. With mitochondrial membrane potential, it accumulates in mitochondria through electrostatic interactions and reacts with thiol moieties forming stable thioether bonds. Therefore PhenoVue 641 Mitochondrial stain is well retained after cell fixation.
Fluorescent mitochondrial stains are commonly used for visualizing and quantifying mitochondria whose dysfunctions, including impaired biogenesis, dynamics or trafficking, are a hallmark of some human diseases, such as neurodegenerative disorders.
PhenoVue 641 Mitochondrial stain can be used to detect mitochondria in indirect immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry, as well as high-content analysis and screening applications.
