Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The synthesis of a photolyzable sphingosine 1-phosphate derivative is reported via the reaction of N-(tert-butoxycarbonyl)-2-N,3-O-isopropylidenesphingosine 7 and bis(α-methyl-o-nitrobenzyl) N,N-diisopropylphosphoramidite. Stimulation of DNA synthesis upon illumination of caged SPP-loaded cells is also described.
