General description

A cationic, fluorescent, carbocyanine dye that can be used as a ratiometric indicator of mitochondrial potential ΔΨm in cells, tissues, and isolated mitochondria. It labels mitochondria with high membrane potential orange and mitochondria with low membrane potential green. Mitochondrial depolarization is indicated by a decrease in the red/green fluorescence intensity ratio. Ideal for detection of collapse of ΔΨm induced by uncouplers of mitochondrial respiration. The potential-sensitive color shift is due to concentration-dependent formation of red fluorescent J-aggregates. JC-1 has also been used in a functional assay of multidrug-resistance cells and in apoptosis-related mitochondrial modifications.
