Psoralens (psoralen, 5-methoxypsoralen, 8-methoxypsoralen, khellin, and visnagin) in 1 mM doses were shown to enhance the generation of reactive oxygen species, such as the hydroxyl radical (HO*), the superoxide anion radical (O2(-)), and singlet oxygen ((1)O(2)), from the system generating chemiluminescence (CL), as well as free radicals in the absence of… CONTINUE READING
