A ratiometric fluorescence probe for rapid detection of mitochondria SO2 derivatives

Abstract

In this study, we report a fluorescent probe (CBT) based on coumarin and benzothiazole moieties for detecting SO2 derivatives (HSO3-/SO32-) in ratiometric fluorescence manner. Probe CBT exhibited desirable properties such as high specificity, rapid response, good water solubility and low detection limit. Michael addition reaction was proved to be the sensing mechanism of CBT. Moreover, fluorescence imaging of cells indicated that probe CBT with low cytotoxicity can be used to monitor the endogenous SO2 derivatives in pathological liver cells (HepG2) but not in the normal liver cells (L-02), indicating that probe CBT can be applied to distinguish the two kinds of cells. Fluorescence co-localization studies proved that the probe was an excellent mitochondria-targeted. Therefore, probe CBT has a great potential application to explore the role of the SO2 derivatives in biology.
