Abstract [en]

Quantitative pH imaging using the carboxy semi-naphthofluorescein dyes SNAFL-1 and SNAFL-2 can be performed by measurement of intensity ratios or fluorescence lifetimes. However, there is a controversy as to whether the latter method has the practical advantage of a straightforward pH calibration in buffers compared to a cumbersome and time-consuming procedure in cells. In this study we have undertaken a systematic study of the potential factors influencing the fluorescence lifetime of the probes at different pH using confocal microscopy. In vitro results demonstrate that factors such as lipid and protein concentrations have a substantial influence on pH measurements based on fluorescence lifetime. The pH could be overestimated by more than 2 pH units. Studies in permeabilized COS-7 cells demonstrate the same trends as observed in the in vitro studies.
