Enhanced spatiotemporal selectivity in photonic sensitization of dissolved molecular oxygen is an important target for improving the potential and the practical applications of photodynamic therapy. Considering the high intracellular glutathione concentrations within cancer cells, a series of BODIPY-based sensitizers that can generate cytotoxic singlet oxygen only after glutathione-mediated cleavage of the electron-sink module were designed and synthesized. Cell culture studies not only validate our design, but also suggest an additional role for the relatively hydrophobic quencher module in the internalization of the photosensitizer.

EFFORTS TOWARDS SYNTHESIS OF HYDROGEN SULFIDE ACTIVATED BODIPY BASED PDT AGENT
Canyurt, Merve; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Department of Chemistry (2022-5-13)
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is an effective and minimally invasive method that has recently gained widespread acceptance as a new medical treatment for a variety of conditions. PDT uses photosensitizers in combination with a specific light source and molecular oxygen to form cytotoxic species that can damage organelles and cell membranes directly. The photodynamic reactions start with light absorption by the PS in the target tissue, which sets off a chain of photochemical events. In comparison to existing se...
Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Association of Antibiotics with the Aminoglycoside Acetyltransferase (3)-IIIb, a Resistance-Causing Enzyme
Norris, Adrianne L.; Özen, Can; Serpersu, Engin H. (2010-05-18)
The thermodynamic and kinetic properties of interactions of antibiotics with the aminoglycoside acetyltransferase (3)-IIIb (AAC) are determined with several experimental methods. These data represent the first such characterization of an enzyme that modifies the 2-deoxystreptamine ring common to all aminoglycoside antibiotics. Antibiotic substrates For AAC include kanamycin A, kanamycin B, tobramycin, sisomicin, neomycin B, paromomycin, lividomycin A, and ribostamycin. Kinetic studies show that kanamycin gr...
Vulcan-Supported Pt Electrocatalysts for PEMFCs Prepared using Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Deposition
Bayrakceken, Ayse; Smirnova, Alevtina; Kitkamthorn, Usanee; Aindow, Mark; Tuerker, Lemi; Eroğlu, İnci; ERKEY, CAN (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...
THERMAL AND MASS DIFFUSIVITY FROM DYNAMIC SINGLE PELLET EXPERIMENTS
DOGU, G; CABBAR, C; Doğu, Timur (Informa UK Limited, 1991-01-01)
The single-pellet moment techniques previously developed for the evaluation of effective diffusion coefficient and effective thermal conductivity of a porous solid are combined and a procedure is proposed for the simultaneous evaluation of these constants from a single set of pulse response experiments. It is shown that both temperature and concentration response curves can be measured from a single pulse of oxygen injected into hydrogen carrier gas flowing past a catalyst pellet. It is shown that the zerot...
