Although combined chemotherapy (Chemo), photothermal (PTT) and photodynamic (PDT) in cancer therapy has drawn significant attention due to its superior anticancer ability, the required high intensity of irradiation results in serious photo-toxicity to healthy neighboring cells, and thus limits its...

Uric acid and/or its monoanion has long been used as chemical-trapping agents to demonstrate the presence of singlet oxygen, O2 (a1 Δg ), in aqueous systems. "Oxidative bleaching" of uric acid, generally monitored through changes in the uric acid absorption...

Pigments often inflict tissue-damaging and proaging toxicity on light illumination by generating free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS). However, the molecular mechanism by which organisms sense phototoxic pigments is unknown. Here, we discover that Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1-A...

5,15-Diazaporphyrins, which have a large absorption at wavelengths over 600 nm, were dissolved in water by complex formation with β-(1,3-1,6)-d-glucans. Aqueous solutions of these complexes were relatively stable compared with their trimethyl-β-cyclodextrin-complexed analogues. β-Glucan-complexed diazaporphyrins showed quenched fluorescence and had low...

Purpurin 18 derivatives with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) linker were synthesized as novel photosensitizers (PSs) with the goal of using them in photodynamic therapy (PDT) for cancer. These compounds, derived from a second-generation PS, exhibit absorption at long wavelengths; considerable...
