Low Level Chemiluminescence from Isolated Rat Hepatocytes, Intact Lung and Intestine in situ
The spontaneous emission of chemiluminescence (CL) appears to reflect changes in the intracellular steady-state concentration of oxygen radicals.1,2 This report presents some applications of the CL technique for determining changes in the intracellular metabolism of free radicals in isolated cells and intact organs in situ.
