Pig Kidney Epithelial Cell Mitochondria
Cy5 HYQ Bandpass Emission (Wide Bandwidth Excitation) Red Set
Fluorescence emission intensity from a culture of male pig kidney epithelial cells (Sus scrofa; LLC-PK1 line) stained with MitoTracker Deep Red 633, which targets the intracellular mitochondrial network. The visible light absorption maximum of MitoTracker Deep Red 633 is 644 nanometers and the emission maximum occurs at 665 nanometers. The image was captured in 12-bit grayscale mode, but subsequently pseudocolored by converting to the RGB color palette and setting the green and blue channels to zero (to produce a red image). Note the bright fluorescence intensity exhibited by the tubular mitochondrial network that extends throughout the cytoplasm of all the cells in the image.
