A ratiometric Raman probe for live-cell imaging of hydrogen sulfide in mitochondria by stimulated Raman scattering

Abstract

Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) coupled with alkyne tags has been an emerging imaging technique to visualize small-molecule species with high sensitivity and specificity. Here we describe the development of a ratiometric Raman probe for visualizing hydrogen sulfide (H2S) species in living cells as the first alkyne-based sensor for SRS microscopy. This probe uses an azide unit as a selective reactive site, and it targets mitochondria with high specificity. The SRS ratiometric images show a strong response to H2S level changes in living cells.
