Paper Abstract

Various microscopic methods were established to measure the subcellular distribution and light-induced reactions of photosensitizing porphyrins. These methods include high resolution video microscopy, microspectrofluorometry, as well as time-resolved and time-gated fluorescence spectroscopy. By using these techniques, different components of hydrophylic and hydrophobic photosensitizers (e.g. monomers, aggregates, ionic species) were localized, and their intracellular reactions -- re-distribution, formation of photoproducts, pH-dependent spectral changes -- were studied.
