PhenoVue 551 Mitochondrial Stain

PhenoVue 551 Mitochondrial stain is a fluorescent dye which accumulates in heathly mitochondria of live cells.

PhenoVue 551 Mitochondrial stain exhibits bright orange fluorescence and is validated for use in imaging microscopy and high-content screening applications.

Part of PerkinElmer's portfolio of cellular imaging reagents, PhenoVue 551 Mitochondrial stain has a maximum excitation wavelength of 551 nm and a maximum emission wavelength of 576 nm, which makes it an alternative to the similar stain MitoTracker Orange CMTMRos.

PhenoVue 551 Mitochondrial stain is a cationic rosamine based structure. With mitochondrial membrane potential, it accumulates in mitochondria through electrostatic interactions and reacts with thiol moieties forming stable thioether bonds. Therefore PhenoVue 551 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 551 Mitochondrial stain can be used to detect mitochondria in indirect immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry, as well as high-content analysis and screening applications. ​​

Analysis of Mitochondrial Dynamics in Human iPSC-derived Neurons using the Operetta CLS High-Content Analysis System

Mitochondrial dynamics are essential for energy conversion and neuron survival. Understanding changes in mitochondrial dynamics is therefore crucial in developing mitochondria-based therapy options for complex pathological conditions such as cancer, neurological disorders, and metabolic syndromes ...
