Paper Abstract

This chapter describes redox imaging of cells, tissues, and organs based on these intrinsic fluorescent probes of cellular metabolism." Cellular metabolism may be noninvasively monitored through the "optical method" based on the fluorescence intensity of intrinsic probe molecules. The intrinsic fluorescent probes, which report on cellular metabolism, are the reduced pyridine nucleotides, NAD(P)H, and the oxidized flavoproteins.
