Study of a New Rhenium Complex for Carbon Monoxide Photorelease in Human Intestinal Epithelial (Caco-2) Cells
Sprache des Titels:
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a signal molecule which regulates vital cellular processes. The gas is generated naturally in the human body and can exert antiapoptotic, vaso-dilatory and anti-inflammatory effects. New substances which release CO after exposure to light ( = photoactivated CO-releasing molecules or PhotoCORMs) are therefore highly interesting for biomedical and photopharmacological applications.
