A turn-on fluorescent iron complex and its cellular uptake.
In the treatment of chronic iron overload disorders, ligands capable of complexing so-called "labile" (nonprotein bound) Fe are required to enter iron-loaded cells, sequester excess Fe, and then exit the cell (and the body) as an intact Fe complex. Despite the emergence of several ligand families that show high activity in mobilizing intracellular Fe, the mechanism and the locations of these subcellular labile Fe pools are still poorly understood. Our previous studies have unearthed a class o...Expand abstract
