Mitochondrial Toxicity

Mitochondrial Oxidative Stress Assay


  • Mitochondria consume the majority of cellular oxygen and regulate redox-signalling1.
  • Toxic drugs can induce mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mROS) causing mitochondrial/cellular damage which has been linked to the pathology of many diseases2.
  • The Cyprotex mitochondrial oxidative stress assay detects selective mROS production caused by the toxicity of novel compounds.
