NP-caged EGTA, potassium salt is a cell-impermeant photolabile chelator that exhibits a high selectivity for Ca2+ upon UV illumination, its Kd increases from 80 nM to >1 mM. The NP-EGTA salt can be complexed with Ca2+ to generate a caged calcium complex that will rapidly deliver Ca2+ upon photolysis.
