Epub 2018 May 7. "Confocal Microscopy to Assess Lysosomal Damage and Cathepsin B Release: A total of 1 × 10^5 primed THP-1 cells were seeded into each well of an eight-well chamber and incubated with 50 µg mL−1 SWCNTs for 24 h. After fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde for 1 h in phosphate buffer solution (PBS), cells were washed three times with PBS and stained with Magic Red Cathepsin B (ImmunoChemistry Technologies) at 26 × 10−9 M for 1 h."

Full text "Mitochondrial membrane depolarization was determined using the MitoPT TMRE Kit (ImmunoChemistry Technologies, Hamburg, Germany) following the recommendations of the manufacturer. HT22 cells were collected and stained with 0.2 µM TMRE (tetramethylrhodamine ethyl ester) for 30 min at 37 °C. The depolarizing reagent CCCP (carbonyl cyanide 3-chlorophenylhydrazone) was used in a final concentration of 50 µM and served as additional positive control."
