AT A GLANCE
- Prepare cells (0.5 - 1×106 cells/mL)
- Add 1 µL 500X Nitrixyte™ NIR
- Incubate cells with test compounds and Nitrixyte™ NIR at 37 ºC for desired period of time
- Analyze cells with a flow cytometer using APC channel
Thaw all the components at room temperature before starting the experiment.
PREPARATION OF STOCK SOLUTION
1. NONOate Positive Control treatment stock solution (50 mM):
Add 200 uL of ddH2O into the vial of NONOate Positive Control (Component B) to make 50 mM NONOacte Positive Control treatment stock solution.
PREPARATION OF WORKING SOLUTION
Dilute 50 mM NONOate Positive Control treatment stock solution with Assay Buffer (Component C) to make 1-2 mM NONOate positive control working solution.

SAMPLE EXPERIMENTAL PROTOCOL
- For each sample, prepare cells in 0.5 mL warm medium or buffer of your choice at a density of 5×105 to 1×106 cells/mL. Note: Each cell line should be evaluated on an individual basis to determine the optimal cell density for NO induction.
- Add 1 µL of 500X Nitrixyte™ NIR (Component A) into 0.5 mL cell suspension. Note: For adherent cells, gently lift the cells with 0.5 mM EDTA to keep the cells intact, and wash the cells once with serum-containing media prior to incubation with Nitrixyte™ NIR.
- Incubate cells with test compounds and Nitrixyte™ NIR at 37 ºC for a desired period of time to generate endogenous or exogenous NO. Note: The appropriate incubation time depends on the individual cell type and test compound used. Optimize the incubation time for each experiment. Note: We have used Raw 264.7 cells incubated with Nitrixyte™ NIR working solution, 20 µg/mL of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and 1 mM L-Arginine (L-Arg) in cell culture medium at 37 ºC for 16 hours.
- Spin down cells that have pre-incubated with Nitrixyte™ NIR for 30 minutes. Resuspend cells with 1 mM DEA NONOate positive control working solution, and incubate at 37 ºC for another 30 minutes. See Figure 1 for details.
- Monitor the fluorescence intensity at APC channel (Ex/Em = 640/675 nm) using a flow cytometer. Gate on the cells of interest, excluding debris.
