Changes in absorbance of monolayer of living cells induced by laser radiation at 633, 670, and 820 nm

Author: Karu T, Afanasyeva NI, Kolyakov SF, Pyatibrat LV, Welser L

Absorption changes in HeLa cells were evaluated from 530-890 nm. Cytochrome c oxidase becomes more oxidized (implying increased cellular oxidative metabolism) at all wavelengths used. This study supports the hypothesis that the mechanism of photobiomodulation is related to the chromophore cytochrome c.
