Fluorescent Dye Helps Detect Reactive Oxygen Species

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Scientists at the University of Bath have developed a fluorescent tool for detecting reactive oxygen species based on a chemical found in mushrooms. Reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as free radicals and peroxides, are produced in cells under oxidative stress. While present in healthy cells in small amounts, excessive ROS in cells are damaging and can lead to cancer and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The scientists at Bath, collaborating with researchers in South Korea, have developed a new probe that biologists studying these diseases can use to see...Read full article
