Photodynamic action of rose bengal on isolated rat pancreatic acini: stimulation of amylase release.

Abstract

The halogenated fluorescein derivative, rose bengal, upon photon activation, elicits amylase secretion from isolated, perifused pancreatic acini. This effect is due to production of highly reactive singlet delta oxygen which can permeabilize the cell membrane and may also react chemically with secretagogue receptors, or other functional components of the… (More)
