Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP; EC is a highly conserved nuclear enzyme present in higher eukaryotes. PARP is activated following DNA damage, is implicated in DNA repair, and its proteolysis has been shown to be an early marker of programmed cell death or apoptosis. In order to better understand the role of PARP in apoptosis and DNA repair and(More)
Mag-indo-1, a fluorescent probe for measuring intracellular magnesium concentration, was used in 3T3 fibroblasts with microspectrofluorometry. The complex emission fluorescence spectrum emitted by a single living cell was analyzed with a computerized method, making it possible to evaluate the contribution of each species of Mag-indo-1 to the total(More)
The study of the physicochemical properties of Mag-indo-1, a fluorescent probe used for intracellular magnesium measurements, has shown that in a biological environment the deprotonated form of this probe is in simultaneous equilibrium with a protonated form, a protein and a magnesium-bound form. The complex emission fluorescence spectrum emitted by a(More)
