Simultaneous Fluorescent Imaging of Mg2+ and Ca2+

Abstract

Simultaneous fluorescent imaging technique with several indicators is a powerful bio-imaging tool for a comprehensive survey about molecular functions in living cells. There are several interactions between Mg(2+) and Ca(2+) such as a counter transport or a competition at binding sites of divalent cation. To measure Mg-Ca images simultaneously, indicators with high selectivity to each divalent cation and multi-color fluorescent imaging system are essential. Here we introduce a setup for Mg-Ca fluorescent imaging we construct, and some reports about Mg-Ca imaging.
