Smith, DG, Law, G-L, Benjamin, SM, Pal, R, Parker, D & Wong, K-L (2011). Evidence for the optical signalling of changes in bicarbonate concentration within the mitochondrial region of living cells. Chemical Communications 47(26): 7347-7349.

Author(s) from Durham


Image and spectral intensity from bicarbonate-selective europium(III) probes localised in the mitochondria of cells is modulated reversibly by variation of external pCO2, and is suppressed by addition of the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, acetazolomide.
