Probe Detects Hydrogen Peroxide

Boronate-based fluorophores allow improved H2O2 detection in live cells
Department: Science & Technology

Interest in monitoring hydrogen peroxide in living cells has increased considerably now that it is not just considered a marker for oxidative stress and damage but also thought to be a messenger in cell signaling. However, H2O2 is challenging to monitor in live cells in real time because it is so reactive and difficult to distinguish from other oxygen species.

Now, assistant chemistry professor Christopher J. Chang and coworkers at the University of . . .
