Caged Compounds

Essential tools for life science research

More Information »Photolysis is an experimental tool that enables the release of ligands adjacent to their receptors, overcoming the effects of diffusion that will otherwise dominate the kinetics of the receptor activation. It requires photolabile precursors of relevant ligands, known as caged compounds.
