Comparative analysis of the absorption and fluorescence spectra and fluorescence excitation spectra of thioflavin T (ThT) in various solvents and in the composition of amyloid fibrils has shown that ThT, when excited in the region of the long-wavelength absorption band, fluoresces in the spectral region with a maximum at 478–484 nm. The appearance in(More)
Spectral-kinetic and photochemical properties of HITC dye with iodide and perchlorate counterions have been studied in environments where the dye molecules exist in different ionic forms. In ethanol, the dye molecules exist as free ions; in dichlorobenzene, as contact ion pairs. Superfast transformation of non-stationary spectra in an HITC dye bleaching(More)
AIM To evaluate the effect of cell oxygenation on photocytotoxicity of a novel tricarbocyanine indolenine dye covalently bound to glucose (TICS). METHODS HeLa cells were incubated with 5 microM TICS, 2 h later irradiated by laser at 740 nm with a light dose of 10 J/cm(2), delivered at a power density of 10, 20, 25 or 30 mW/cm(2), in air or in argon(More)
AIM To evaluate the influence of pH on accumulation and photocytotoxicity of the novel tricarbocyanine indolenine dye covalently bound with glucose (TICS). METHODS For in vitro experiments, cultured HeLa cells were incubated with TICS at pH 7.1, 6.5 or 6.2 and then scored for dye uptake, viability and sensitivity to laser (740 nm) irradiation. In vivo(More)
It is found that when indotricarbocyanine dye in HeLa cells is exposed to photons with different energies the efficiency of cell damage is wavelength independent provided the photosensitizer absorbs the same number of photons per unit time. In vivo animal experiments with two strains of tumor show that when the wavelength of the irradiating light is(More)
The spectral-luminescent properties of symmetrical indotricarbocyanine dyes with the same cation and different anions (Br−, BF4 −) in cancerous HeLa cells, an isotonic solution of NaCl, and organic solvents have been investigated. It is shown that when these dyes are present in cells in nontoxic concentrations, they are in a monomeric state, they are(More)
We present results of experimental and theoretical studies of the optical characteristics of a new indotricarbocyanine dye that is capable of effectively limiting the power of laser radiation in the visible spectral range. The spectral-luminescent and energy characteristics of the dye molecules and their absorption spectra from the excited state with(More)
We present the results of a study of the spectral luminescence properties of three groups of indotricarbocyanine dyes, each of which is formed from compounds with the same cation and different anions. In high-polarity solvents, in the absorption and emission spectra of the dyes we see one type of center; in low-polarity solvents, due to the presence of(More)
