Biochem/physiol Actions

Acridine Yellow G (AYG) is an organic dye with photophysical properties. It is widely used in optics, medicine and photovoltaic cells. AYG has been used as a solar photocatalyst to increase biodegradability and remove ferulic acid, a target pollutant from wastewater. It retards the growth of glioblastoma via dual inhibition of epidermal growth factor receptor and protein kinase c kinases.

Variable temperature 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) has been used to study the interaction of the RNA trimer, GpCpA, with the intercalators ethidium bromide and the acridine derivatives; proflavin, 9-amino-acridine, acridine orange, acridine yellow and acriflavin. The complexes formed were studied...

Acridine dyes, fluorescein and lucifer yellow CH are fluorescent photosensitizers used experimentally to selectively stain and photodynamically destroy eukaryotic cells and subcellular structures. We have determined that the mechanism of light- and oxygen-dependent inactivation of E. coli by these dyes...
