With the development of social society, sleep deprivation has become a serious and common issue. Previous studies documented that there is a correlation between sleep deprivation and oxidative stress. However, the information of sleep deprivation related ROS has rarely been obtained. Also, it has been demonstrated that sleep deprivation can induce endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. As such, for a better understanding of sleep deprivation as well as its related diseases, it is important to develop probes with ER-targeting ability for detecting ROS generated in this process. Herein, a novel two-photon fluorescent molecular probe, JX-1, was designed for sensing HClO in live cells and zebrafish. The investigation data showed that in addition to real-time response (about 150 s), the probe also exhibited high sensitivity and selectivity. Moreover, the probe JX-1 demonstrated two-photon fluorescence, low cytotoxicity and ER targeting ability. These prominent properties enabled the utilization of the probe for monitoring exogenous and endogenous HClO in both live cells and zebrafish. Using this useful tool, it was found that sleep deprivation can induce the generation of HClO in zebrafish.

A system of cisternae in the CYTOPLASM of many cells. In places the endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with the plasma membrane (CELL MEMBRANE) or outer membrane of the nuclear envelope. If the outer surfaces of the endoplasmic reticulum membranes are coated with ribosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum is said to be rough-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH); otherwise it is said to be smooth-surfaced (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, SMOOTH). (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
A type of endoplasmic reticulum lacking associated ribosomes on the membrane surface. It exhibits a wide range of specialized metabolic functions including supplying enzymes for steroid synthesis, detoxification, and glycogen breakdown. In muscle cells, smooth endoplasmic reticulum is called SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM.
Various physiological or molecular disturbances that impair ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM function. It triggers many responses, including UNFOLDED PROTEIN RESPONSE, which may lead to APOPTOSIS; and AUTOPHAGY.
Subcellular structures found in nerve cell bodies and DENDRITES. They consist of granular endoplasmic reticulum (ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM, ROUGH) and RIBOSOMES.
A type of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) where polyribosomes are present on the cytoplasmic surfaces of the ER membranes. This form of ER is prominent in cells specialized for protein secretion and its principal function is to segregate proteins destined for export or intracellular utilization.

Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
