A predictive model for the selective accumulation of chemicals in tumor cells
Cationic lipophilic dyes can accumulate in mitochondria, and especially in mitochondria of tumor cells. We investigated the chemical properties and the processes allowing selective uptake into tumorExpand

MTT assay for cell viability: Intracellular localization of the formazan product is in lipid droplets.
Although MTT is widely used to assess cytotoxicity and cell viability, the precise localization of its reduced formazan product is still unclear. In the present study the localization of MTT formazanExpand

Fluorescent cationic probes for nuclei of living cells: why are they selective? A quantitative structure–activity relations analysis
Selectivity of nuclear probes is controlled by competitive accumulation of the probe by cellular organelles as well as the high affinity for nucleic acids. Physicochemical features of probes whichExpand

Apoptosis induction by different pathways with methylene blue derivative and light from mitochondrial sites in V79 cells
The importance of mitochondria for the induction of apoptosis by photodynamic therapy (PDT) was studied with a new photosensitizing dye, methylene blue derivative (MBD), and light. By usingExpand
