We report for the first time a NO photodonor (NOPD) operating with the widely used chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin (DOX) as the light-harvesting antenna. This permits NO uncaging from anN-nitroso appendage upon selective excitation of DOX with highly biocompatible green light, without precluding its typical red emission. This NOPD effectively binds DNA and photodelivers NO nearby, representing an intriguing candidate for potential multimodal therapeutic applications based on the combination of DOX and NO.

Abstract

We report for the first time a NO photodonor (NOPD) operating with the widely used chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin (DOX) as the light-harvesting antenna. This permits NO uncaging from anN-nitroso appendage upon selective excitation of DOX with highly biocompatible green light, without precluding its typical red emission. This NOPD effectively binds DNA and photodelivers NO nearby, representing an intriguing candidate for potential multimodal therapeutic applications based on the combination of DOX and NO.
