The chemotherapeutic use of cisplatin is limited by its severe side effects. In this study, by conducting different omics data analyses, we demonstrated that cisplatin induces cell death in a proximal tubular cell line by suppressing glycolysis- and tricarboxylic acid (TCA)/mitochondria-related genes. Furthermore, analysis of the urine from… (More)
We report a small molecule two-photon probe (SAD1) that shows a significant TP action cross section (170 GM), binds to Aβ plaques specifically, readily enters the brain through the BBB, and can directly 3D monitor the individual Aβ plaque in living transgenic mice at more than 380 μm depths.
Synaptic Zn2+ plays an important role in neurotransmission and a neuromodulator. The development of the imaging tools for monitoring spatiotemporal changes taking place in synaptic Zn2+ concentrations is necessary in order to understand the role of Zn2+ in the function of many aspects of the glutamate system. In this work, two-photon probes 1 and 2, bearing… (More)
We report a two-photon fluorescent probe for ratiometric imaging of cysteamine in situ. This probe can detect the levels of endogenous cysteamine with statistical significance in live cells and brain hippocampal tissues, revealing that cysteamine is localized mainly in the perikaria of the pyramidal neurons and the granule cells.
Mitochondria provide the energy of the cells and are the primary site of oxygen consumption and the major source of reactive oxygen species. In mitochondria, metal ions and glutathione play vital roles in maintaining their structure and the redox environment. To understand their roles in mitochondria, it is crucial to monitor each of these chemical species… (More)
