Abstract Organotin compounds are organometallic compounds showing various toxicological properties. Several organotin compounds also showed an antineoplastic effect. However, their relative mutagenic potential is not well established. In this study Et 2 SnCl 2 ·L [L= N -(2-pyridylmethylene)-4-toluidine] (OTC) has been subjected to investigation for its cytotoxic effect in mouse bone marrow cells (BMCs) and human peripheral blood lymphocyte cells (HPBLs). The SnN bond in OTC is 2.46 A which is greater than 2.39 A and therefore, a better formation of tin–DNA complex can be expected. The present data indicate that OTC induced significant delay in cell kinetics and sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) in both BMCs and HPBLs, whereas, induction of chromosome aberrations was found only in HPBLs. The presence of buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) modulated cellular sensitivity towards OTC in both cell systems. It may be inferred that the OTC could bind on DNA more easily owing to its structural advantage and this may explain the induction of DNA damage and the delay in cell proliferation. Since the cytotoxic effect of OTC is more in glutathione depleted cells, the concentration of OTC may be reduced to get an antitumour effect in GSH-depleted cells and thus minimizes its toxic side effect.

Organotin compounds (OTC) are organometallic compounds with vast industrial and agriculture applications that give rise to ubiquitous environmental contamination. OTC are immunotoxic, but most studies have been performed in rodents and almost exclusively focused on T cell immunity. Humans can be exposed to OTC by inhalation, absorption, and consumption of contaminated food and water. To analyse the effects of OTC in human immune tissue, we isolated B cells from tonsils and exposed them to five O...

Abstract Two organotin pesticides, triphenyltin acetate (TPTA) and triphenyltin hydroxide (TPTH), were evaluated for their ability to induce micronuclei (MN) and sister chromatid exchange (SCE) in vitro using cultured Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and in vivo BALB/c mouse erythrocytes. Both pesticides induced a dose-dependent increase but only TPTH induced a significant increase in MN at the highest dose (150 ng/ml) tested in CHO cells. With adding S9 microsomal fractions, both pesticides in...

Organotin compounds such as tributyltin (TBT) and triphenyltin (TPT) can kill target cells by triggering apoptosis. The mechanism by which these environmental toxicants activate the apoptotic program is currently unclear. We have studied the effect of TBT and TPT in the human Hut-78 and Jurkat T-lymphocyte cell lines. Within 1 h there was a 30-fold increase in caspase activity, as measured by the cleavage of the fluorescent peptide DEVD-AMC. Morphological changes characteristic of apoptosis, suc...

Diorganotin(IV) dichloride complexes of the type R 2 SnCl 2 .L (R = methyl, ethyl, vinyl, t-butyl, n-butyl or phenyl; L=N-(2-pyridylmethylene)arylamine) have been synthesized and characterized on the basis of IR, NMR and 119 Sn Mossbauer studies. Investigation of the complexes indicated that N-(2-pyridylmethylene)arylamines form distorted trans-octahedral complexes with R 2 SnCl 2 similar to the well-known R 2 SnCl 2 .L. Cytogenetic toxicology testing has been performed for Et 2 SnCl 2 .L 4 [L 4...

Arecoline (ARC), an alkaloid of the betel nut (Areca catechu), is a major ingredient of betel quid. The carcinogenic potentiality as well as its cell transformation ability has already been reported. Reduced glutathione (GSH), a major non-protein thiol substance plays an important role in protection of cells against the toxic effect of exogenous compounds. In order to understand the role of factors which affect ARC sensitivity, we have made an attempt to establish a relationship between ARC-indu...

It has been demonstrated that exposure to mercury or cadmium compounds causes alterations in the glutathione system in a model glial cell line, C6. Here we report that two organic tin compounds, triethyltin (TET) and trimethyltin (TMT), are also toxic to these cells with EC50 values for cell death of c. 0.02 μM and 0.8 μM respectively. Exposure for 24 h to either of these compounds at sub-toxic concentrations caused increases in the amount of reduced glutathione (GSH) per cell. Increases in glut...

Abstract Mitomycin C (MMC) is a bifunctional alkylating agent and a chemotherapeutic drug, covalently binds to the DNA of cells and produces monoadducts and DNA–DNA, DNA–protein crosslinks, induces damages at chromosomal level and slows down the rate of cell proliferation. Reduced glutathione (GSH), a major non-protein thiol substance plays an important role in detoxification of cells against the toxic effect of exogenous compounds. In order to understand the role of factor which affects MMC sen...

In this study an attempt has been made to establisha relationship between bleomycin (BLM)-induced DNAdamage and buthionine sulphoximine (BSO)-mediatedmodified endogenous glutathione (GSH) status in normalhuman lymphocytes. Present results demonstrate thatdepletion of endogenous GSH by BSO reduced the clasto-genic action of BLM, whereas elevation of endogenousGSH by treating the cells with GSH and GSH-ester,potentiates the cytotoxicity of BLM. A significant reductionin the frequency of deletions ...

Previous studies from our laboratory have indicated that glutathione (GSH) may affect the cytotoxicity of iproplatin to a greater extent than four other platinum agents tested including cisplatin. Therefore we studied the effect of GSH depletion by buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) on the cytotoxicity of iproplatin and cisplatin in a human melanoma cell line SK-MEL-2. Depletion of GSH was dependent on the concentration and time of incubation with BSO. BSO (100 μM) depleted GSH by 85% at 24 h and by 9...

Abstract New butyltin complexes with 2-sulfobenzoic acid: [Sn(C4H9)2{O3SC6H4COO-2}(H2O)]·(C2H5OH) (DBTsbz), [Sn(C4H9)3{O3SC6H4COOH-2}] (TBTsbz) and [Sn2(C4H9)6{μ-O3SC6H4COO-2}] (DTBTsbz) are very effective cytotoxic agents against tumor cells. The molecular interaction of these complexes with lipid membranes and DNA has been investigated. The IR spectra and changes of 1H, 13C chemical shifts suggest that SO3 and COO groups of 2-sulfobenzoato ligand interact with O atom of glycerin fragment of DP...

Magnetic nanoparticles are well known for anticancer activity by deregulating cellular functions. In the present study, cellular effects of low strength static magnetic field (SMF) were explored. How nanoparticles affect the cellular response in presence and absence of static magnetic field was also studied. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and human lymphoma monocytic cell line U937 were chosen as representative normal and cancer cells models. The two effects we would like to report in...

The synthesis of six tri-organotin compounds with 4-amino and 4,6-diaminopyrimidine-2-thiolate is described. The compounds have the general formula R3Sn(thiolate) where R = Me, Bu, or Ph. The compounds are investigated by a variety of spectroscopic techniques both in solution and in the solid state. The environment around the tin centres proves to be tetrahedral with monodentate thiolate anions as is inferred from the infrared and NMR spectra. The coordination sphere is not affected even by the ...

Abstract Since the initial success of cisplatin, metal complexes and organometallic compounds have been gaining growing interest in cancer therapy. It is well known that organotin(IV) compounds display strong biological activity. The triorganotin compound [(C 6 H 5 ) 3 Sn(cmbzt)] (cmbzt = 5-chloro-2-mercaptobenzothiazole) (SnCMB), was tested for its antiproliferative and antitumour activities. Two sets of experimental procedures were followed: (1) In vitro and ex vivo procedures included the stu...
