Elucidation of the Binding Properties of A Photosensitizer to Salmon Sperm DNA and Its Photobleaching Processes by Spectroscopic Methods

Abstract

Methylene blue (MB) is a tricyclic heteroaromatic photosensitizer with a promising application in the photodynamic therapy (PDT) for anticancer treatment. The binding properties of MB to salmon sperm DNA have been investigated by the measurements of absorption spectra, quenching experiments and the photobleaching processes. Remarkable hypochromic and… (More)
