Mitochondrial Damage Detection

Creative Biogene has established a complete and mature mitochondrial damage detection platform, using flow cytometry and quantitative PCR analysis to quickly and accurately detect mitochondrial damage.

Tissue damage or cell injury can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, which leads to oxidative damage and an increase in the production of mitochondrial ROS and the oxidation of mtDNA. Oxidized mtDNA will be released into the cytoplasm through various mechanism before released into the extracellular environment.

The damage of mitochondria is mainly manifested in the following aspects:

  • The increased permeability of the outer membrane of the mitochondria releases the substances in the membrane space between the outer membrane and the intima of the mitochondria into the cytoplasm, the most important of which is cytochrome C. the release of cytochrome C into the cytoplasm can initiate the caspase reaction, thus initiating the apoptosis received by the mitochondria.
  • Decrease of mitochondrial membrane potential.
  • The cardiolipin located in the intima of the mitochondria is degraded.
  • 7A6 antigen exposed in mitochondria.

Creative Biogene always provides you with customized services for mitochondrial research, and our one-stop research and analysis platform can meet all your research needs.
