Features and Benefits
LightOx™17 is a fluorescent molecule that exhibits solvatochromatic fluorescence emission when excited with UV-A and violet (405 nm) light sources.
In a cellular environment it exhibits predominately mitochrondrial localisation and, when activated by UV-A or 405 nm absorption wavelengths, elicits the release of reactive oxygen species (ROS) for controlled, localised cell death.
