Phthalocyanine interaction with cultured cells was studied by means of flow-cytometry, laser scanning confocal microscopy, fluorescent and transmission pH-microphotometry. Irradiation of Pc-loaded cells caused the following order of events: increase of Pc intracellular fluorescenceyieldsmitochondria damageyieldschanges of cell surface and/or volumeyields-plasma membrane potential disintegrationyields-severe damage of the cell plasma membrane and nuclear envelope. For all these processes it takes a few hours to reach a stationary value. Pc inside the cells is found in granules surrounding the Golgi apparatus and in the peripheral cytoplasmic region, last ones partially coinciding with the acidic cellular compartments. A temporary decrease of cytoplasmic and lysosomal pH is caused by Pc uptake and irradiation. Artificial acidation of the cytoplasm of Pc-loaded cells resulted in the enhancement of the efficiency of the photodynamic inactivation.
