Colocalization of fluorescent staining by rhod-2 AM and mitochondrion-selective MitoFluor™ Green stain in an adult rat cortical astrocyte.
Colocalization of fluorescent staining by rhod-2 AM (Cat. no. R1244, R1245MP; upper panel) and mitochondrion-selective MitoFluor™ Green stain (Cat. no. M7502; lower panel) in an adult rat cortical astrocyte. Cells were simultaneously loaded with rhod-2 AM (4.5 µM) and the MitoFluor™ Green stain (20 nM) for 30 minutes at 22°C. Confocal laser-scanning microscopy using 488 nm excitation and spectrally resolved detection, at 505–530 nm for MitoFluor™ Green stain and =585 nm for rhod-2, shows almost identical staining distribution.
