Can I measure NADPH without lysing my cells?

Posted August 21, 2019

Most traditional blots and protein assays involve cell lysates, but in recent years, new probes have been developed that will permit the visualization of NADP+/NADPH levels in living cells. Intracellular probes will enable the researcher to take measurements without a cell lysing step. For multiparametric experiments, choose a fluorophore that is at an extreme wavelength, to reduce spectrum overlap and the necessity for data correction.
