Enhanced Analgesic Effects and Gastrointestinal Safety of a Novel, Hydrogen Sulfide-Releasing Anti-Inflammatory Drug (ATB-352): A Role for Endogenous Cannabinoids.

Antioxid Redox Signal 2020 Mar 13. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Antibe Therapeutics, Inc., Toronto, Canada.

The covalent linking of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to a hydrogen sulfide (HS)-releasing moiety has been shown to dramatically reduce gastrointestinal (GI) damage and bleeding, as well as increase anti-inflammatory and analgesic potency. We have tested the hypothesis that an HS-releasing derivative of ketoprofen (ATB-352) would exhibit enhanced efficacy without significant GI damage in a mouse model of allodynia/hyperalgesia. ATB-352 was significantly more potent and effective as an analgesic than ketoprofen and did not elicit GI damage. Read More

A new strategy to improve the water solubility of an organic fluorescent probe using silicon nanodots and fabricate two-photon SiND-ANPA-N for visualizing hydrogen sulfide in living cells and onion tissues.

J Mater Chem B 2020 Feb;8(7):1422-1431

Key Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry for Biology and Medicine (Ministry of Education), College of Chemistry and Molecular Sciences, Wuhan University, Wuhan 430072, China.

A small-molecule fluorescent probe offers unique advantages for the detection of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and other reactive small molecules including high sensitivity, cell permeability and high spatiotemporal resolution. Generally, in order to obtain good cell permeability, fluorescent probes are liposoluble, which in turn leads to poor water solubility. Thus, it is regrettable that most of these fluorescent probes cannot be used in fully aqueous systems and hence, organic solvents are used, which may cause negative effects on living cells.

J Photochem Photobiol B 2020 Mar 8;204:111783. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

Center of Research Excellence in Desalination & Water Treatment, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran 31261, Saudi Arabia; Center for Environment and Water, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran 31261¸ Saudi Arabia; Department of Mechanical Engineering, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran 31261¸ Saudi Arabia.

Cadmium sulfide-graphitic carbon nitride nanocomposite was synthesized by pulsed laser ablation in liquid, and it was found from the results of optical and morphological characterizations that the proper anchoring of nanostructured cadmium sulfide on the nano-sheets of graphitic carbon nitride took place, which brought about the positive attributes such as enhanced visible light absorption and reduced photo-generated charge recombination, the key features required for an efficient photo-catalyst by solar light harvesting. The pulsed laser ablation in liquid method adopted for the synthesis of cadmium sulfide-graphitic carbon nitride has the following advantages: the shape and size of the synthesized particles can be controlled by altering the experimental parameters such as laser wavelength, pulse laser duration, the pH of the solution, the surfactants and the temperature of the solution, pulsed laser ablation in liquid method neither requires cumbersome equipment nor does it require intermediate chemicals and catalysts nor does it necessitate the post synthesis purification. The enhancement of photo-catalytic activity of cadmium sulfide-graphitic carbon nitride nanocomposite was tested for the photo-catalytic deactivation of Escherichia coli bacteria in water under visible light radiation.

Disulfide chemistry in responsive aggregation of amphiphilic systems.

Soft Matter 2020 Jan 28;16(1):11-26. Epub 2019 Nov 28.

School of Applied and Interdisciplinary Sciences, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, 2A and 2B Raja S. C. Mullick Road, Kolkata, 700032, India.

The dynamic nature of the disulfide bond has enhanced the potential for disulfide based amphiphiles in the emerging biomedical field. Disulfide containing amphiphiles have extensively been used for constructing wide ranging soft nanostructures as potential candidates for delivery of drugs, proteins and genes owing to their degradable nature in the presence of intracellular glutathione (present in a many fold excess compared to the extracellular milieu). This degradable nature of amphiphiles is not only useful to deliver therapeutics but it also eliminates the toxicity issues associated with the carrier after delivery of such therapeutics. Read More

Treatment-resistant schizophrenia: focus on the transsulfuration pathway.

Rev Neurosci 2020 Jan;31(2):219-232

School of Social Sciences and Psychology, Western Sydney University, Sydney 2751, New South Wales, Australia.

Treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS) is a severe form of schizophrenia. The severity of illness is positively related to homocysteine levels, with high homocysteine levels due to the low activity of the transsulfuration pathway, which metabolizes homocysteine in synthesizing L-cysteine. Glutathione levels are low in schizophrenia, which indicates shortages of L-cysteine and low activity of the transsulfuration pathway. Read More

The Benefits of Macromolecular/Supramolecular Approaches in Hydrogen Sulfide Delivery: A Review of Polymeric and Self-Assembled Hydrogen Sulfide Donors.

Antioxid Redox Signal 2020 01;32(2):79-95

Department of Chemistry, Virginia Tech Center for Drug Discovery, and Macromolecules Innovation Institute, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia.

Cell homeostasis and redox balance are regulated in part by hydrogen sulfide (HS), a gaseous signaling molecule known as a gasotransmitter. Given its biological roles, HS has promising therapeutic potential, but controlled delivery of this reactive and hazardous gas is challenging due to its promiscuity, rapid diffusivity, and toxicity at high doses. Macromolecular and supramolecular drug delivery systems are vital for the effective delivery of many active pharmaceutical ingredients, and HS stands to benefit greatly from the tunable physical, chemical, and pharmacokinetic properties of polymeric and/or self-assembled drug delivery systems.

Axially Ligated Mesohemins as Bio-Mimicking Catalysts for Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization.

Molecules 2019 Nov 2;24(21). Epub 2019 Nov 2.

Department of Chemistry, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA.

Copper is the most common metal catalyst used in atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), but iron is an excellent alternative due to its natural abundance and low toxicity compared to copper. In this work, two new iron-porphyrin-based catalysts inspired by naturally occurring proteins, such as horseradish peroxidase, hemoglobin, and cytochrome P450, were synthesized and tested for ATRP. Natural protein structures were mimicked by attaching imidazole or thioether groups to the porphyrin, leading to increased rates of polymerization, as well as providing polymers with low dispersity, even in the presence of ppm amounts of catalysts.
