In this work we present a novel water soluble spiropyran photoswitch that can be photonically activated inside live cells from a form that has no significant effect on the cellular survival to a form that induces a dramatic toxic response.
The function of a parity generator/checker, which is an essential operation for detecting errors in data transmission, has been realized with multiphotochromic switches by taking advantage of a neuron-like fluorescence response and reversible light-induced transformations between the implicated isomers.
A nitrospiropyran, which was modified with a cadaverine-derived anchor, was investigated with respect to its thermally induced isomerizations, hydrolytic stability of the merocyanine form, and photochromic ring closure. The host-guest complexation of the anchor by the cucurbituril macrocycle, evidenced by absorption titration, NMR spectroscopy, and… (More)
A self-assembled supramolecular platform has been designed for reversibly controlling the concentration of a compound in solution, via a photochemical reaction. The system utilizes metal-ligand interactions between a Zn-porphyrin dimer and a pyridine-appended dithienylethene (DTE) photoswitch. In addition to reversible compound release, the spectral… (More)
Proto-oncogene tyrosine-protein kinase receptor RET is implicated in the development and maintenance of neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Attaching activity-compromising photocleavable groups (caging) to inhibitors could allow for external spatiotemporally controlled inhibition using light, potentially providing novel information on how… (More)
Small molecule nonpeptidic mimics of α-helices are widely recognised as protein-protein interaction (PPIs) inhibitors. Protein-protein interactions mediate virtually all important regulatory pathways in a cell, and the ability to control and modulate PPIs is therefore of great significance to basic biology, where controlled disruption of protein networks is… (More)
REarranged during Transfection (RET) is a transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinase required for normal development and maintenance of neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Deregulation of RET and hyperactivity of the RET kinase is intimately connected to several types of human cancers, most notably thyroid cancers, making it an attractive… (More)
Two amidine-substituted spiropyran derivatives have been characterized with respect to the DNA-binding properties over a broad pH interval. The two derivatives differ in the number of positive charges. By varying the pH, the protonation state of the derivatives is also changed, allowing for additional variations in the charge distribution. We show that the… (More)
This master thesis discusses the design and the implementation of an own developed wavelet-based codec for both video and image compression. The codec is specifically designed for low bitrate video with minimum complexity for use in online gaming environments. Results indicate that the performance of the codec in many areas equals or even surpasses that of… (More)
