Chang K, Kang P, Liu Y, Huang K, Miao T, Sagona AP, Nezis IP, Bodmer R, Ocorr K, Bai H.TGFB-INHB/activin signaling regulates age-dependent autophagy and cardiac health through inhibition of MTORC2. Autophagy. 2019 Dec 29:1-16. doi: 10.1080/15548627.2019.1704117. Full Text 

"Acidic organelles (including autolysosome) were monitored by staining tissue with 100 nM LysoTracker Red DND-99 (Thermo Fisher Scientific, L7528) for 5 min at room temperature. Lysosomal CtsB1 (cathepsin B1) activities were monitored using Magic Red Cathepsin-B Assay kit (ImmunoChemistry Technologies, 938) following the manufacturer’s manual. Nuclei were stained with either DAPI or Hoechst 33342 (1 µg/ml) (ImmunoChemistry Technologies, 938)."
