Lysosomal Cytotoxicity Dual Staining Kit (Cell-Based)

Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles important for various cellular processes. They contain hydrolytic enzymes utilized in the metabolism of some biomolecules. The extracellular cargo (e.g. nutrients, toxins) binds to the cell membrane and is subsequently transported into membrane-bound endosomes for further degradation by lysosomes while intracellular components are transported to lysosomes through autophagy. Lysosomal dysfunction is associated with many human conditions such as aging and neurodegenerative disease. Assay Genie has developed the Lysosomal Cytotoxicity Dual Staining Kit (cell-based) which contains two probes; membrane permeable, selective Lysosomal Stain and Cell Death Marker. We also include a Positive Control Reagent, which increases lysosome activity and staining, thus serves as an experimental control. This easy-to-use, non-radioactive kit allows studying the regulation of lysosome and cytotoxicity at the cellular level by using Fluorescence Microscopy and Flow Cytometry in cultured cells.

Figure: Lysosomal Staining in Jurkat cells. 1x10 6 Jurkat cells were treated with vehicle or Positive Control Reagent for 24 hr. After treatment, cells were incubated in 1 ml of Assay Buffer with 1X Lysosomal Staining for 10 minutes at 37°C, followed by stain with 1X Cell Death Marker according to kit’s protocol. Panel A: Comparison of histograms from FACS analysis showing lysosomal staining. Unstained cells (black); Control cells stained with 1X Lysosomal Staining (green); Cells treated with Positive Control Reagent staining (blue). Panel B: Cells treated with vehicle (left panel; basal level of lysosomal staining), or Positive Control Reagent (right panel; green fluorescence). Increased green fluorescence compared to the basal levels confirms accumulation of Lysosomal Stain inside activated lysosomes. Low levels of red fluorescence resulting from Cell Death Marker shows low levels of Lysosomal Stain toxicity.
