Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae was engineered for de novo production of six different flavonoids (naringenin, liquiritigenin, kaempferol, resokaempferol, quercetin, and fisetin) directly from glucose, without supplementation of expensive intermediates. This required reconstruction of long biosynthetic pathways, comprising up to eight heterologous genes from plants. The obtained titers of kaempferol 26.57±2.66mgL(-1) and quercetin 20.38±2.57mgL(-1) exceed the previously reported titers in yeast. This is also the first report of de novo biosynthesis of resokaempferol and fisetin in yeast...

Mitochondrial dysfunction is known as one of causative factors in ischemic stroke, leading to neuronal cell death. The present work was undertaken to investigate whether succinate induces neuron apoptosis by regulating mitochondrial morphology and function. In neurons, oxygen-glucose deprivation induced succinate accumulation due to the reversal of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) activation, leading to mitochondrial fission. Kaempferol inhibited mitochondrial fission and maintained mitochondrial HK-II through activation of Akt, and thereby protected neurons from succinate-mediated ischemi injury...

Flavonoids, natural products abundant in the model legume Glycine max, confer benefits to plants and animals health. Flavonoids are present in soybean mainly as glycoconjugates. However, the biosynthesis mechanisms of flavonoid glycosides are largely unknown in G. max. In the present study, 212 putative UDP-glycosyltransferase (UGTs) genes were identified in G. max by genome-wide searching. The GmUGT genes were distributed differentially among the twenty chromosomes, and they were expressed in various tissues with distinct expression profile...

Collagen fibrils are produced from collagen monomers not only in vivo, but also in vitro. The ability to have an influence on the structure and properties of fibrils may find medical application and can be useful for controlling the formation of collagen gels and sheets in tissue engineering. Here we investigated the influence of flavonoids, distinguished by the number of hydroxyl groups in the B-ring, on the formation of collagen fibrils. A correlation was found between the number of hydroxyl groups, lipophilicity of molecules and their ability to influence the fibril formation...

Claudin-2 is highly expressed in human lung adenocarcinoma tissues and may be a novel target for cancer chemotherapy because knockdown of claudin-2 decreases cell proliferation. We found that flavonoids including kaempferol, chrysin, and luteolin concentration-dependently decrease claudin-2 expression in lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells. Claudin-2 expression is up-regulated by mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK)/ extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)/c-Fos and phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt/nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) pathways, but these activities were not inhibited by kaempferol, chrysin, and luteolin...

Coenzyme Q (Q) is a lipid-soluble antioxidant essential in cellular physiology. Patients with Q deficiencies, with few exceptions, seldom respond to treatment. Current therapies rely on dietary supplementation with Q10, but due to its highly lipophilic nature, Q10 is difficult to absorb by tissues and cells. Plant polyphenols, present in the human diet, are redox active and modulate numerous cellular pathways. In the present study, we tested whether treatment with polyphenols affected the content or biosynthesis of Q...

Human serum albumin (HSA) is a transporting protein that has multiple functions. The binding interaction between HSA and small molecules affects its function and efficacy of small molecules. The present study reports that kaempferol-7-O-α-L-rhamnopyranoside (KR) interacts with HSA as indicated by multiple fluorescence spectroscopy and molecular modeling. KR can quench the intrinsic fluorescence of HSA through the formation of a KR-HSA complex in a static manner. In addition, the binding site is located in subdomain IIA as confirmed by competitive experiments using site-specific warfarin and ibuprofen, and the driving forces include hydrogen bonds, van der Waals forces and electrostatic interaction derived from a thermodynamic analysis...
