Biological Activity for CCCP

CCCP is a protonophore. It disrupts mitochondria membrane potential by transporting protons across the mitochondrial inner membrane, which interferes with the proton gradient and ATP synthesis. CCCP is a widely used as an uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation to induce mitochondrial depolarization.

Mitochondrial studies in live neurons.
By Karthik krishnamurthy on 10/24/2018
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Rat
Cell Line/Tissue: spinal cord neurons

TMRM fluorescence intensity before and after CCCP addition was used for the quantitation of change in mitochondrial membrane potential in spinal cord neurons induced by glutamate receptor agonist AMPA

Time lapse images of TMRM fluorescence of mitochondria rich regions in neurons was recorded. The fluorescence intensity (F) at a given time point was normalized to the initial fluorescence intensity (F0) before addition of the AMPA. At the end of each experiment CCCP (750 nM) was added to the bath. CCCP collapses the mitochondrial membrane potential and decreases the TMRM fluorescence.
