The generation of reactive species by photosensitization is the principle of photodynamic therapy and also of cutaneous photoaging. Once produced, these species can react with membrane lipids, yielding a large range of photo-oxidized products. These modified lipids alter the properties of the lipid bilayer, changing its organization into domains and leading to increased permeability to ...
Radical-mediated oxidations are expected to play an important role on photosensitized oxidations occuring in photodynamic therapy and cutaneous photoaging. Given the role of lipid photo-oxidation in these photobiological processes, in this project we aim to study the formation of lipid peroxyl radicals in model membranes, by using of BODIPY-a-tocopherol off/on fluorescent probes. These ...
