In situ measurements of the pH of mammalian peroxisomes using the fluorescent protein pHluorin.

Abstract

Peroxisomes are metabolically active organelles that participate in the oxidation of long-chain fatty acids and in the biosynthesis of bile acids, cholesterol, and ether phospholipids. Even though maintenance of a stable acid-base milieu is essential for proper peroxisomal function, the determination of the peroxisomal pH (pH(p)) remains inconclusive, and… (More)
