The cellular proportion of free and protein-bound NADH complexes is increasingly recognized as a metabolic indicator and biomarker. Because free and bound forms exhibit different fluorescence spectra, it is considered whether autofluorescence shape sufficiently correlates with mitochondrial metabolism to be useful for monitoring in cellular suspensions. Observed changes appear consistent with previous studies probing free/protein-bound proportions, making this a potentially useful approach for the real-time monitoring of metabolism.
