Apoptosis is an important cellular event that plays a key role in pathogeny and therapy of many diseases. Apoptosis has been associated with photodynamic therapy (PDT) and its pathway is important in the mechanistic study of PDT. We show that single cell fluorescent imaging can be used to determine the pathway of PDT-induced tumor cell apoptosis. In this study, ASTC-a-1 tumor cells transfected by plasmid DNA SCAT3 were treated by Photofrin-PDT. The intracellular distribution of Photofrin was… CONTINUE READING
