Abstract

A novel molecule, TatBim-Alexa, consisting of the HIV1 Tat cell-penetrating peptide, the Bim apoptosis-inducing peptide, and Alexa Fluor 546 was synthesized for photoinducion of apoptosis. The Alexa Fluor 546 was used as a photosensitizer and covalently attached at the C-terminus of TatBim peptide by the thiol-maleimide reaction. Photo-dependent cytosolic internalization of TatBim-Alexa and photo-dependent apoptosis using TatBim-Alexa were demonstrated in several kinds of mammalian cells including human cancer cell lines.
