Photofrin II uptake by atheroma in atherosclerotic rabbits. Fluorescence and high performance liquid chromatographic analysis on post-mortem aorta



Photofrin II uptake by atheroma in atherosclerotic rabbits. Fluorescence and high performance liquid chromatographic analysis on post-mortem aorta



Photochemistry and Photobiology 49(6): 731-737



Atherosclerotic lesions were induced in normal and Watanabe rabbits by atherogenic diet and stripping of aorta endothelium. The rabbits were injected with Photofrin II and sacrificed two days later. Atheromatous aorta as well as normal aorta from control animals were characterized by their fluorescence spectra using front face excitation. Characteristic emission peaks at 631 and 694 nm were displayed at atheromatous plaques. The excitation spectrum shows a strong band at 394 nm and weaker bands at 446, 504, 536 and 574 nm. Although no fluorescence of normal aorta can be seen by visual inspection, emission with a maximum at 626 nm was detected by spectrofluorimetry. Normal phase high performance liquid chromatography analysis of extracts from atheroma and control aorta were also carried out. The specific labelling of atheroma involves mainly protoporphyrin, hematoporphyrin and also minor components of Photofrin II which are accumulated. Some other components are accumulated but do not appear to be specifically retained by atheroma.
