TempoATP™-Rapid: ATP Biosensor Assay, a fluorescent biosensor, was recently used in a study cited in nature.com. TempoATP™ offers fast kinetics (resolution is in seconds) in measuring real-time cellular ATP metabolism and cytotoxicity. In this study scientists from the University of Salford and University of Pisa investigated whether human genes regulating ATP production in the mitochondria are important for breast cancer and tumor metastasis. In investigating ATP fluctuations in the living cell, researchers noted that ATP depletion is a consequence of mitochondrial dysfunction and triggers  cell death. Therefore, researchers explored the possibility that ATP depletion could be a solution to target aggressive cancer cells. Read on to learn more about this study’s conclusions and the usefulness of TempoATP™!
