The MitoPT® JC-1 Assay detects mitochondrial membrane depolarization utilizing the fluorescent dye JC-1. When accumulated in a negatively charged polarized mitochondria, JC-1 fluoresces orange. When mitochondrial membrane potential collapses in apoptotic or metabolically stressed cells, JC-1 reagent is dispersed through the cell and will fluoresce green. Analyze your results using a flow cytometer, fluorescence plate reader, or fluorescence microscopy.
