Analysis of the Effects of Aging on Mitochondrial Membrane Potential


The mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm), also known as the proton motive force, is a crucial bioenergetic parameter that regulates the respiratory rate, ATP synthesis, and the production of reactive oxygen species. It is controlled by both electron transport and proton leaks. Decreased mitochondrial membrane potential¬†(DeltaPsi(M)) has been found in various aging cell types from several mammalian species. At CD BioSciences, we offer comprehensive mitochondrial membrane potential analysis services to elucidate these complex biological mechanisms, providing valuable insights for aging-related studies.

Sample Types and Requirements

  • Sample types
    Our services are available for various cell lines, including but not limited to lymphocytes, hepatocytes, and skeletal muscle cells, derived from aging animal models or individuals.
  • Sample requirements
    Cell lines should be amenable to the staining methods employed for mitochondrial membrane potential analysis, such as compatibility with fluorescent dyes or probes to ensure reliable and quantitative measurements. Additionally, cell lines should be maintained in a healthy growth state with proper culture media, temperature, and CO2 levels to ensure optimal cellular function, including mitochondrial health.
