Reactivity of HYDROP-EX and HYDROP

The reactivity of HYDROP-EX is equivalent to that of HYDROP in cells, because cell-permeable HYDROP is hydrolyzed within cells to generate HYDROP-EX.

Reactivity of HYDROP-EX with reactive oxygen species

It shows high specificity to hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).

Reaction of HYDROP-EX with various reactive oxygen species.

Reaction of HYDROP-EX with various reactive oxygen species.

Only H2O2 increases the fluorescence of HYDROP-EX at physiological pH of 7.4 or higher.
Fluorescence intensity of 10 µM HYDROP-EX was measured after addition of each ROS (final conc. 50 µM) in 0.1 M sodium phosphate buffer at pH 7.4 containing 0.1 % DMF as a cosolvent. Fluorescence intensities were measured at 520 nm, with excitation wavelength of 490 nm.

ROS generating system

O2: KO2
H2O2: H2O2, 37℃, 60 min
OH: Fe(ClO4)2:H2O2 =10:1, 37℃, 60 min
ONOO: HOONO, 25℃, 5 min
ClO: NaOCl, 25℃, 5 min
TBHP: tert-Butyl hydroperoxide
NO: NOC13, 37℃, 30 min
1O2: EP-1, 37℃, 30 min

Reaction time course of HYDROP-EX with H2O2.

Fluorescence increase can be observed just after the addition of H2O2. Fluorescence intensity increases as the incubation time become longer.

Reaction time course of HYDROP-EX with H2O2

10 μM of HYDROP-EX was dissolved to 0.1 M phosphate buffer (pH=7.4, including 0.1 % DMF as a cosolvent). H2O2 was added to each concentrations at the timepoint of 5 min (yellow arrow). Fluorescence intensity was measured using a microplate reader with excitation wavelength of 460 nm and emission wavelength of 520 nm at 37℃. Slit widths of excitation and emission was 9 nm and 20 nm, respectively.
