Paper Abstract

Various microscopic techniques were used to study the dependency of photodynamically induced subcellular reactions on the metabolic state of cell cultures. TPPS4 and AlS2-3Pc were incubated in RR 1022 epithelial cells with varying cell density. To attain almost isolated cells (low cell density) or confluent growing cells (high cell density) 25 cells/mm2 or 500 cells/mm2 were seeded, respectively. Low cell density irradiation with blue light led to a change in the initial cytoplasmatic fluorescence pattern. For both sensitizers, TPPS4 as well as AlS2-3, a fluorescence relocalization and fluorescence intensity increase could be detected, moreover in the case of TPPS4 a fluorescence formation in the nucleus and nucleoli were detected. In contrast, for confluent growing cells no redistribution was observed.
