Abstract
Steady state and time resolved confocal fluorescence microscopy, using a point scanning system, is applied to an investigation of the early stages of photo-induced changes in 3T3-L1 murine fibroblasts using di-sulphonated aluminum phthalocyanine (AlPcS2) as a photosensitizer. A comparison is made with data obtained using a line scan system and V79-4 Chinese hamster fibroblasts. The steady state data obtained in this work demonstrate that intracellular AlPcS2 fluorescence intensity increases progressively on photoirradiation. Time-resolved studies indicate that this could result from a progressive decrease in the concentration of the self-quenched membrane-associated form of AlPcS2 following its conversion into the fluorescent monomeric form.
