MitoRed is a cell-membrane-permeable, rhodamine-based dye. It localizes in mitochondria and emits red fluorescence (Fig. 1). The interaction of MitoRed with mitochondria depends on the membrane potential of the mitochondria. Mitochondria can be stained with 20 to 200 nM MitoRed. The excitation and emission wavelengths of MitoRed are 560 nm and 580 nm, respectively.
