A highly selective fluorescent probe for hypochlorite and its endogenous imaging in living cells.


An oxime based fluorescent probe has been designed and synthesized, which detects free as well as enzymatically generated hypochlorite with a low detection limit and high sensitivity. In addition, the probe was successfully utilized for the monitoring of endogenously produced hypochlorite in LPS stimulated cell lines, C6 glioma and BV2 microglia.
