Glutathione (GSH) is a tri-peptide (Glutamic acid, Cystein and Glycine) present in cells, showing an antioxidant effect allowing the reduction and the removal of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Peroxide from the cell. The new QuicGSHS3.0 probe from Goryo Chemicals will allow you to easily quantify intracellular concentration of GSH by Fluorescent Live cell Imaging.
Due to its involvement in many cellular processes such as normal ageing, tumor suppression, chronic diseases and many more, cellular senescence has gained increasing attention since its first description over 50 years ago. In addition, understanding of cellular senescence is invaluable in the development of therapeutic targets in the fight against age-related co-morbidities, cancer and chronic disease progression.
Over-expressed in senescent cells, Senescence-associated β-galactosidase (SA-β-gal), has been widely used as a marker of cellular senescence. In order to specifically detect this biomarker directly in living cells or tissues, let’s take a look at an easy and ready-to-use assay recently developed: the SPiDER-βGal- Cellular Senescence Detection kit.
Live Cell Imaging has transformed the way biologists study cellular functions and processes. The observation of dynamic changes provides more insight into the processes happening in a cell, as compared to imaging studies of fixed cells. Goryo Chemical have developed a broad range of innovative Live Cell Imaging fluorescent probes for various applications. Let’s take a closer look…
One of our aims is to offer you, the researcher, a large and varied selection of biologically relevant, innovative Live Cell Imaging tools. In 2016, we started a collaboration with Goryo Chemical, when our specialists selected their unique fluorescent dyes for cellular analysis, assays and live cell imaging.
In one of my previous posts, I already invited you to take a (non-exhaustive) look at their diversified range of fluorescent dyes, which can be used in a variety of fields such as stem cell differentiation, cancer cell studies, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) analysis… Today, I’d like to take you through two new fluorescent probes we’re pleased to make available for you.
