Mitochondria are the functional intracellular target for a photosensitizing boronated porphyrin.

Abstract

A photosensitizing boron-containing porphyrin derivative denoted BOPP, which is selectively localised into mitochondria, has been tested on Namalwa cells, in each of two genetic configurations: rho+ cells containing normal mtDNA and mitochondrial respiratory functions, or rho0 cells lacking mtDNA and devoid of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.
