The synthesis, characteristics, and biological applications of a series of new rhodamine nitroxide fluorescent probes that enable imaging of hydroxyl radicals (•OH) in living cells are described. These probes are highly selective for •OH in aqueous solution, avoiding interference from other reactive oxygen species (ROS), and they facilitate •OH imaging in(More)
We synthesized and evaluated a series of acidic fluorescent pH probes exhibiting robust pH dependence, high sensitivity and photostability, and excellent cell membrane permeability. Titration analyses indicated that probe 3 could increase its fluorescence intensity 800-fold between pH 8.0 and 4.1. Additionally, its pK(a) value is optimal for intracellular(More)
Mitochondrial oxidative stress has been implicated in aging, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, stroke, ischemia/reperfusion injury, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cancer. Recently, we developed two new mitochondria-targeting fluorescent probes, MitoProbes I/II, which specifically localize in mitochondria and employed both in vivo and in(More)
We report the design, synthesis and application of several new fluorescent probes (LysoProbes I-VI) that facilitate lysosomal pH monitoring and characterization of lysosome-dependent apoptosis. LysoProbes are superior to commercially available lysosome markers since the fluorescent signals are both stable and highly selective, and they will aid in(More)
