Cellular damage induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS) in normal tissues has been implicated in the etiology of several human ailments. Among the subcellular organelles, damage to mitochondria is considered crucial and can lead to cytotoxicity and cell death. However, the same damage, if it is selectively induced in cancer tissues can lead to its cure. Hence analyzing the mechanisms of such damage and its modulation may result in better prevention or cure. Using mitochondria derived from rat brain/liver as well as sarcoma 180 ascites cells, we have examined the mechanisms of damage to lipid, as assessed by different products of lipid peroxidation and to proteins, as determined by loss of enzyme activity and protein oxidation. Mechanisms involved, in terms of scavenging of ROS have been determined using pulse radiolysis for hydroxyl radical and histidine destruction assay for singlet oxygen. Various ROS were generated using γ-radiation, photosensitization etc. under different conditions. Some novel porphyrins, with potential uses in photodynamic therapy also were used as photosensitizers. Our study shows that ROS can induce significant oxidative damage in mitochondria from both normal and tumor tissues and this can be inhibited by natural antioxidants like tocotrienols, nicotinamide and caffeine. Damage, on the other hand, can be enhanced by deuteration of the buffer and oxygenation. Our results hence demonstrated that mitochondria were sensitive to damage by ROS and its modulation may have potential uses in prevention of the disease in normal tissues; if damage can be selectively induced in tumor, it can lead to its regression.

In this work, the tertiary butylhydroperoxide-(t-BuOOH) treated mouse was used as a model to study the oxidative stress that is associated with various neurodegenerative diseases. DNA was found to be an early target oft-BuOOH attack. Necrosis was associated with extensive DNA fragmentation that occurred in almost all regions of the brain within 20 min following intracerebroventricular (icv) injection of 109.7 mg/kgt-BuOOH. Apoptosis was associated with high levels of DNA fragmentation that was o...

Abstract We have investigated the level of lipid peroxidation (LPO) in rat brain homogenates in the presence of nitric oxide (NO) which was released by the addition of sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and compared it with that induced by H 2 O 2 . We also examined the effect of melatonin and vitamin E on the NO-induced LPO. The concentration of malonaldehyde (MDA) plus 4-hydroxyalkenals (4-HDA) was used as an index of LPO. While both H 2 O 2 and SNP increased MDA+4-HDA production in brain homogenates ...

Tocotrienols from palm oil showed significant ability to inhibit oxidative damage induced by ascorbate-Fe2+ and photosensitization, involving different mechanisms, in rat liver microsomes. The tocotrienol-rich fraction from palm oil (TRF), being tried as a more economical and efficient substitute for α-tocopherol, showed time- and concentration-dependent inhibition of protein oxidation as well as lipid peroxidation. It was more effective against protein oxidation. The extent of inhibition by TRF...

the photodynamic therapy (PDT)? of cancer (l-3). Photodynamic action relies on the absorption of visible light by the Photofrine photosensitization initiates a sequence of oxidative events that begins with singlet oxygen formation and ultimately leads to cell death. We hypothesize that membrane lipid-derived free radical formation is an early event in this process. In the presence of iron and ascorbate, lipid free radicals are generated during cellular photosensitization of L1210 cells as detect...

Abstract Hepatic drug metabolizing enzymes were significantly decreased in Ehrlich ascites tumour-bearing mice. A protein inhibitor of hepatic drug metabolizing enzymes was isolated from Ehrlich ascites cells and purified. This involved ammonium sulphate fractionation (60–80%), DEAE, phosphocellulose, Sephadex G-100 and hydroxyapatite column chromatography. Purification attained was 800-fold. The inhibitory protein was effective in decreasing all the components of hepatic mixed-functionoxidase s...

With a view to locate porphyrins for use in photodynamic therapy (PDT), the new modality of cancer treatment we have evaluated the ability of a novel water soluble porphyrin meso-tetrakis[4-(carboxymethyleneoxy)phenyl]porphyrin (T4CPP) to induce damage to mitochondria during photosensitization. T4CPP, when exposed to visible light, induced lipid peroxidation in rat liver mitochondria as assessed by the formation of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), conjugated dienes (CD) and lipid...

Chemotherapeutic drugs like cyclophospamide (100 mg/kg b.wt.) and 5-fluorouracil (120 mg/kg b.wt.) caused significant inhibition in cytochrome P450 (cytP450)-dependent hepatic microsomal drug metabolising enzymes in rats. A similar decrease in these enzyme activities was also seen in the host liver of tumour-bearing animals. However, a non-toxic, endogenous (vitamin B3) metabolite, nicotinamide (100 mg/kg b.wt.) could effectively restore the hepatic drug metabolising enzyme levels back to contro...

Abstract While Photofrin, the photosensitizer currently in clinical use for photodynamic therapy (PDT) of tumours, has been shown to be both efficacious and safe in the treatment of a variety of human cancers, its chemical heterogeneity and low absorbance in the phototherapeutically useful wavelength range (600–850 nm) make the development of new photosensitizers with improved characteristics desirable. A suitable manipulation of the molecular structure of porphyrins offers several interesting p...

Abstract Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethyl xanthine), an ingredient of coffee, has been investigated for its potential antioxidant activity against oxidative damage to rat liver microsomes. Such damage was induced by three reactive oxygen species of cardinal importance in causing membrane damage in vivo namely hydroxyl radical (OH), peroxyl radical (ROO) and singlet oxygen ( 1 O 2 ). The results obtained showed that caffeine was an effective inhibitor of lipid peroxidation, at millimolar concentrations,...

The present study was aimed at characterizing composition of the seed oils of Afzelia xylocarpa (Kurz) Craib and Cassia fistula L., including the fatty acid profiles and contents of tocopherols, sterols, and total phenolics. The fatty acid profiles of two seed samples were analyzed by GC. The tocopherols and sterols were determined by HPLC, and the total phenolics was assessed by the Folin–Ciocalteau method and HPLC analysis. In addition, the DPPH free radical scavenging assay was used to evalua...

Abstract There is a growing consensus that long-term deficits in the brain are due to dynamic interactions between multiple neural and immune cell types. Specifically, radiation induces an inflammatory response, including changes in neuromodulatory pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokine secretion. The purpose of this study was to establish that there is sympathetic involvement in radiation-induced decrements early in in vivo immune function host defense. Female, 8–9 week-old C57BL/6J mice were expo...

Through a new synthetic route, three ruthenium-phenanthroline porphyrins (RPP1, RPP2 and RPP3) were prepared. Their photophysical and photochemical properties, such as DNA photocleavage activity, singlet-oxygen photogeneration and two-photon absorption (2PA) were evaluated. These porphyrins 1–3 had substantial photocleavage activities, with 71%, 74% and 38% observed at 20 μM. The porphyrins with different substituents on phenathroline group had similar singlet oxygen quantum yields, with ΦΔ valu...

Beta-lapachone (beta-Lp) derived from the Lapacho tree is a potentially novel anticancer agent currently under clinical trials. Previous studies suggested that redox activation of beta-Lp catalyzed by NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) accounted for its killing of cancer cells. However, the exact mechanisms of this effect remain largely unknown. Using chemiluminescence and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spin-trapping techniques, this study for the first time demonstrated the real-tim...

Background Radiation-induced skin injury remains a serious concern during radiotherapy. Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD, SOD1) is a conserved enzyme for scavenging superoxide radical in cells. Because of the integrity of cell membranes, exogenous molecule is not able to be incorporated into cells, which limited the application of natural SOD1. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protective role of HIV-TAT protein transduction domain mediated protein transduction of SOD1 (TAT-SOD1) ag...
