1 Mass spectrometry-based quantitative analysis for post-translational modifications using both (16)O/(18)O- and (14)N/(15)N-labeling strategies revealed that Photofrin-PDT triggered a significant oxidation of procaspase-3-D(3)A (mainly on Met-27, -39 and -44) in a Photofrin dose-dependent manner, whereas the active site Cys-163 remained largely unmodified.
