Model of SO generation, quenching and transport. (A) ANEPPS’ structure reveals two different moieties that can be targeted by SO: the aniline ring (T) and the unsaturated hydrocarbon chain (S). (B) SO generation, membrane transport, and quenching. After oxidation of the aniline ring, the target molecule loses its dipole moment (or its orientation), but the hydrocarbon double bond may still quench SO.
