(6-4) DNA photoproducts as potential intrinsic DNA photosensitizers are discussed by V. Lhiaubet-Vallet, M. A. Miranda, et al. in their Communication on page 6476 ff. 5-Methyl-2-pyrimidone deoxyribonucleoside was shown to photosensitize the DNA damage, acting as a Trojan horse. This concept is illustrated using images of Valencia, taken from the Fallas Festival and the Science Museum.
