Several dual-action Tam-Pt(iv) complexes derived from tamoxifen (Tam) and platinum(ii) drugs were designed and synthesized for targeting estrogen receptors (ERs) and DNA. These novel compounds not only exhibited potent cytotoxicity against breast cancer cells, but also reversed the tamoxifen resistance of TamR-MCF-7 cancer cells. Computational docking assays together with cellular uptake data demonstrated that the ER ligand portion of these conjugates plays a targeting role in ER-positive tumor cells and promotes the uptake of platinum via an estrogen receptor-mediated pathway...

Plumbagin, an anti-cancer agent, is toxic to cells of multiple species. We investigated if plumbagin targets conserved biochemical processes. Plumbagin induced DNA damage and apoptosis in cells of diverse mutational background with comparable potency. A 3-5 fold increase in intracellular oxygen radicals occurred in response to plumbagin. Neutralization of the reactive oxygen species by N-acetylcysteine blocked apoptosis, indicating a central role for oxidative stress in plumbagin-mediated cell death. Plumbagin docks in the ubiquinone binding sites (Q0 and Qi) of mitochondrial complexes I-III, the major sites for oxygen radicals...

The cytotoxic effect of iodide or thiocyanate copper(i) complexes (1-PSf, 2-PSf, 3-PSf, 4-PSf) with phosphine derived from sparfloxacin (HSf) and 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline (dmp) or 2,2'-biquinoline (bq) as diimine auxiliary ligands was proved in vitro on somatic (MRC-5) and neoplastic (MCF7) human cell lines. Differences in mode of action were investigated in-depth for the selected dmp and bq complexes (1-PSf, 3-PSf, respectively) by elucidation of the following: (i) the efficiency to produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) in biological systems (cyclic voltammetry); (ii) their impact on mitochondrial membrane potential; (iii) potency for the activation of caspases 3 and 9; (iv) influence on the degree of DNA degradation (comet assay)...

Two platinum(II) complexes [Pt(L)(DMSO)Cl] (1) and [Pt(L)(pn)]Cl (2) with 5-bromo-oxoisoaporphine (H-L) were synthesized. We found that the two new platinum(II) complexes were more selective for Hep-G2 tumor cells than for normal cells (HL-7702, WI-38 and L-o2 cell lines). 5-Bromine-oxoisoaporphine platinum(II) complex 2 was a telomerase inhibitor targeting c-myc G4, and it triggered Hep-G2 cell apoptosis more potently than complex 1. Moreover, they induced cell apoptosis via disruption of mitochondrial functions...

Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), found in Brassica family vegetables, exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancerous properties. Here, we aimed to evaluate the preventive effects of I3C against ethanol (EtOH)-induced liver injury and study the protective mechanism(s) by using the well-established chronic-plus-binge alcohol exposure model. The preventive effects of I3C were evaluated by conducting various histological, biochemical, and real-time PCR analyses in mouse liver, adipose tissue, and colon, since functional alterations of adipose tissue and intestine can also participate in promoting EtOH-induced liver damage...

Iron is universally important to cellular metabolism and mitoferrins-1 and -2 have been proposed to be the iron importers of mitochondria, the cell's assembly plant of heme and iron-sulfur clusters. These iron-containing prosthetic groups are critical for a host of physiological processes ranging from oxygen transport and energy consumption to maintaining protein structural integrity. Mitoferrin-1 (Mfrn1) belongs to the mitochondrial carrier (MC) family and is atypical given its putative metallic cargo; most MCs transport nucleotides, amino acids, or other small to medium-size metabolites...

Mitochondrial group II introns require the participation of numerous nucleus-encoded general and specific factors to achieve efficient splicing in vivo Pentatricopeptide repeat (PPR) proteins have been implicated in assisting group II intron splicing. Here, we identified and characterized a new maize seed mutant, defective kernel 37 (dek37), which has significantly delayed endosperm and embryo development. Dek37 encodes a classic P-type PPR protein that targets mitochondria. The dek37 mutation causes no detectable DEK37 protein in mutant seeds...

Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are essential co-factors for proteins that participate in fundamental cellular processes including metabolism, DNA replication and repair, transcriptional regulation, and the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC). ISCA2 plays a role in the biogenesis of Fe-S clusters and a recent report described subjects displaying infantile-onset leukodystrophy due to bi-allelic mutation of ISCA2. We present two additional unrelated cases, and provide a more complete clinical description that includes hyperglycinemia, leukodystrophy of the brainstem with longitudinally extensive spinal cord involvement, and mtDNA deficiency...

Based on the synthesis of curcumin and its derivatives from aromatic aldehydes, a novel series of palladium(II) complexes with curcumin (or its derivatives) and 2,2'-bipyridine have been synthesized through a directed self-assembly approach that involves spontaneous deprotonation of the curcuminoid ligands in H2O/acetone solution. These complexes have been characterized by 1H (13C) NMR, HRMS and elemental analysis. Crystal structure of 3h has been determined by X-ray diffraction analysis. Their cytotoxicity was tested by MTT...

Species-level relationships of a complex of six putative acanthocolpid cercariae with ventral keels from nassariid gastropods from Capricornia, Queensland (Cercaria capricornia I-VI) were explored using mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data. Analysis of the large subunit of nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA), the internal transcribed spacer 2 rDNA and subunit 3 of the nicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide dehydrogenase mitochondrial gene indicates that the six distinct morphotypes previously identified relate to only three discrete genotypes...

Photosynthetic organisms use sunlight as the primary source of energy to support their metabolism. In eukaryotes reactions responsible of the conversion of light into chemical energy occur in specific organelles, the chloroplasts. In this study we showed that mitochondria also have a seminal influence on cells' energy metabolism and on photosynthetic reactions. This is illustrated by the observation that the strong photosensitivity of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii cells depleted of the chloroplast protein PGRL1 was rescued by the introduction of a mitochondrial mutation affecting respiratory complex I...

Ruthenium-based complexes have been regarded as one of the most potential metal-based candidates for anticancer therapy. Herein, two ruthenium (II) methylimidazole complexes [Ru(MeIm)4(4npip)]2+ (complex 1) and [Ru(MeIm)4(4mopip)]2+ (complex 2) were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro anticancer activities. The results showed that these ruthenium (II) methylimidazole complexes exhibited moderate antitumor activity comparable with cisplatin against A549, NCI-H460, MCF-7 and HepG2 human cancer cells, but with less toxicity to a human normal cell line HBE...

Asphyxial cardiac arrest (ACA)-induced ischemia results in acute and delayed neuronal cell death. The early reperfusion phase is critical for the outcome. Intervention strategies directed to this period are promising to reduce ACA/resuscitation-dependent impairments. This study focused on the evaluation of the protective potential of an extract from Gynostemma pentaphyllum (GP), a plant used in traditional medicine with antioxidative, glucose lowering and neuroprotective activities, in an ACA rat model. We tested the following parameters: i) Basic systemic parameters such as pCO2 and blood glucose value within the first 30 min post-ACA; ii) mitochondrial response by determining activities of citrate synthase, respiratory chain complexes I + III and II + III, and the composition of cardiolipin 6 and 24 h post-ACA; iii) neuronal vitality of the CA1 hippocampal region by immunohistochemistry 24 h and 7 days post-ACA; and iv) cognitive function by a novel object recognition test 7 days post-ACA...

The importance of metabolism in macrophage function has been reported, but the in vivo relevance of the in vitro observations is still unclear. Here we show that macrophage metabolites are defined in a specific tissue context, and these metabolites are crucially linked to tissue-resident macrophage functions. We find the peritoneum to be rich in glutamate, a glutaminolysis-fuel that is exploited by peritoneal-resident macrophages to maintain respiratory burst during phagocytosis via enhancing mitochondrial complex-II metabolism...

Different exercise protocols lead to long-term adaptations that are related to increased mitochondrial content through the activation of mitochondrial biogenesis. However, immediate mitochondrial response to exercise and energetic substrate utilization is still unknown. We evaluate the mitochondrial physiology of two types rat skeletal muscle fibres immediately after a single session of high intensity interval exercise (HIIE) or aerobic exercise (AER). We found AER was able to reduce the ATP synthesis dependent oxygen flux in the tibialis (TA) when stimulated by complex I and II substrates...

Mitochondrial dysfunction plays a significant role in neurodegenerative disease including ataxias and other movement disorders, particularly those marked by progressive degeneration in the cerebellum. In this study, we investigate the role of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) deficits in cerebellar tissue of a Purkinje cell-driven spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 (SCA1) mouse. Using RNA sequencing transcriptomics, OXPHOS complex assembly analysis and oxygen consumption assays, we report that in the presence of mutant polyglutamine-expanded ataxin-1, SCA1 mice display deficits in cerebellar OXPHOS complex I (NADH-coenzyme Q oxidoreductase)...
