Flux measurement in single cells by fluorescence microphotolysis

  • R. Peters
  • Published 1984 in European Biophysics Journal


Fluorescence microphotolysis — widely employed for diffusion studies — can be used to measure transfer (flux) of fluorescent solutes through membranes in single cells and organelles. This article analyses the methodological basis of flux measurements, provides experimental tests, and discusses potential applications. The principle of the method is to… (More)
