Luminescent organoplatinum(II) complexes containing bis(N-heterocyclic carbene) ligands selectively target the endoplasmic reticulum and induce potent photo-toxicity

Author affiliations

Abstract

A panel of luminescent platinum(II) complexes containing bidentate N-heterocyclic carbene ligands selectively localize to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) domain, induce ER stress and cell apoptosis. Some of them show potent photo-toxicity to cancer cells.
