- A ratiometric fluorescent probe, BTPB, for the selective monitoring of hepatic peroxynitrite (ONOO⁻) in situ after acetaminophen (APAP) overdose has been developed. Our study provided direct evidence for supporting the generation of ONOO⁻ in APAP-induced liver injury. This new probe will be a useful tool for studying the roles of ONOO⁻in vivo.
