Abstract

Photo-irradiation of an appropriately designed caged hormones enables the control and manipulation of the corresponding biological processes with high spatial and temporal resolution. Caged trans-zeatin of various types of nitrobenzene carbonate related photoremovable protecting groups have been synthesized. A rapid irradiation liberates the trapped trans-zeatin molecule, permitting targeted perturbation of biological processes including degradation, glucosylation and recognition by appropriate enzymes.
