Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of end stage renal disease worldwide. Increased glucose flux into the aldose reductase (AR) pathway during diabetes was reported to exert deleterious effects on the kidney. The objective of this study was to investigate the renoprotective effects of AR inhibition in high glucose milieu in vitro. Rat renal tubular (NRK-52E) cells were exposed to high glucose (30 mM) or normal glucose (5 mM) media for 24 to 48 hours with or without the AR inhibitor epalrestat (1 μM) and assessed for changes in Akt and ERK1/2 signaling, AR expression (using western blotting), and alterations in mitochondrial membrane potential (using JC-1 staining), cell viability (using MTT assay), and cell cycle...

Basal-like breast cancer (BLBC) is associated with high-grade, distant metastasis and poor prognosis. Elucidating the determinants of aggressiveness in BLBC may facilitate the development of novel interventions for this challenging disease. In this study, we show that aldo-keto reductase 1 member B1 (AKR1B1) overexpression highly correlates with BLBC and predicts poor prognosis in breast cancer patients. Mechanistically, Twist2 transcriptionally induces AKR1B1 expression, leading to nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) activation...

BACKGROUND: Uric acid (UA) is an antioxidant found in human serum. However, high UA levels may also have pro-oxidant functions. According to previous research, aldose reductase (AR) plays a vital role in the oxidative stress-related complications of diabetes. We sought to determine the mechanism by which UA becomes deleterious at high concentrations as well as the effect of AR in this process. METHOD: Endothelial cells were divided into three groups cultured without UA or with 300 μM or 600 μM UA...

Fungicide exposure causes degeneration of dopaminergic neurons and contributes to Parkinson's disease (PD). Benomyl inhibits enzymes responsible for detoxifying the reactive dopamine metabolite 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde. Aldose reductase (AR) is known as tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) reductase that generates BH4, a cofactor for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) involved in dopamine synthesis. AR also acts as an aldehyde reductase involved in detoxifying 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde. In PD patients, the level of AR is significantly lower in the cerebellum...

PURPOSE: Aldose reductase (ALR), the first and rate-limiting enzyme involved in polyol pathway plays a central role in diabetes and its related complications, including diabetic retinopathy (DR). Inhibition of ALR may also be an ideal target for reducing the deleterious effects of DR. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of epalrestat (EPL), ALR inhibitor on glucose-induced toxicity in ARPE-19 cells. METHODS: ARPE-19 cells were challenged with normal glucose (NG, 5 mM) and high glucose (HG1, 25 mM and HG2, 50 mM) in the presence or absence of EPL...

Aldose reductase is related to the onset and progression of diabetic complications, such as neuropathy, retinopathy, angiopathy, and so on: therefore molecules that are capable of inhibiting the enzyme are potential drugs for treatment of diabetic complications. Epalrestat is the sole aldose reductase inhibitor that is clinically used, but still has some drawbacks. Thus, the development of new aldose reductase inhibitors is still desired. We have synthesized a series of new pterin-7-carboxamides, and evaluated their in vitro inhibitory activities against human aldose reductase...

Heme oxygenase (HO)-1 has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory functions. Recent studies have shown that the upregulation of HO-1 is beneficial to counteract neuroinflammation, making HO-1 a new therapeutic target for neurological diseases. We have reported that epalrestat (EPS), which is currently used for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, increases HO-1 levels through the activation of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) in bovine aortic endothelial cells. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that EPS upregulates HO-1 via Nrf2 activation in the component cells of the nervous system, by using rat Schwann cells and human SH-SY5Y cells...

OBJECTIVE: Under diabetic conditions, glucose is converted to sorbitol via aldose reductase, whose process could contribute to diabetic vascular complications. However, effects of aldose reductase inhibitors are modest in diabetic patients. This may be attributed to weak inhibitory activity of aldose reductase inhibitors. We compared effects of ranirestat on endothelial cell damage with those of epalrestat. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Intracellular formations of sorbitol and superoxide were measured by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry-mass spectrometry and dihydroethidium staining, respectively...

Epalrestat is a noncompetitive and reversible aldose reductase inhibitor used for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. This study assumed that epalrestat had a protective effect on diabetic peripheral nerve injury by suppressing the expression of aldose reductase in peripheral nerves of diabetes mellitus rats. The high-fat and high-carbohydrate model rats were established by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin. Peripheral neuropathy occurred in these rats after sustaining high blood glucose for 8 weeks...

Electrophilic carbonyl compounds are highly cytotoxic and genotoxic. Aldo-keto reductase 1B10 (AKR1B10) is an enzyme catalyzing reduction of carbonyl compounds to less toxic alcoholic forms. This study presents novel evidence that AKR1B10 protects colon cells from DNA damage induced by electrophilic carbonyl compounds. AKR1B10 is specifically expressed in epithelial cells of the human colon, but this study found that AKR1B10 expression was lost or markedly diminished in colorectal cancer, precancerous tissues, and a notable portion of normal adjacent tissues (NAT)...

We report five crystalline polymorphs and an amorphous phase of epalrestat together with configurational isomerism and color behavior: form I (deep red), form II (deep orange), form III (bright yellow), form IV (yellow), and form V (orange) are in the E,Z configuration of the drug, and a Z,Z isomer (bright yellow). Two pathways are identified for polymorph conversion: direct transformation of the E,Z isomer and another pathway via the Z,Z isomer to the E,Z polymorphs. From a pharmaceutical perspective, the stability of polymorphs was established under grinding, solvent slurry and thermal conditions: form I (thermodynamic) > form II > form V > form III > form IV (least stable)...

Aldose reductase (AKR1B1) is a critical drug target because of its involvement in diabetic complications, inflammation, and tumorigenesis. However, to date, development of clinically useful inhibitors has been largely unsuccessful. Cyclopentenone prostaglandins (cyPGs) are reactive lipid mediators that bind covalently to proteins and exert anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative effects in numerous settings. By pursuing targets for modification by cyPGs we have found that the cyPG PGA1 binds to and inactivates AKR1B1...

Hyperglycemia in diabetic patients results in a diverse range of complications such as diabetic retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy and cardiovascular diseases. The role of aldose reductase (AR), the key enzyme in the polyol pathway, in these complications is well established. Due to notable side-effects of several drugs, phytochemicals as an alternative has gained considerable importance for the treatment of several ailments. In order to evaluate the inhibitory effects of dietary spices on AR, a collection of phytochemicals were identified from Zingiber officinale (ginger), Curcuma longa (turmeric) Allium sativum (garlic) and Trigonella foenum graecum (fenugreek)...

Diabetes mellitus occurrence has been associated to the modification of the physiological levels of glucose and is often accompanied by several long-term complications, namely neuropathy, nephropathy, retinopathy, cataract, and cardiovascular. Aldose reductase (AR) is an enzyme of aldoketo reductase super-family that catalyzes the conversion of glucose to sorbitol in the polyol pathway of glucose metabolism. In this context, aldose reductase inhibitors (ARIs) have received much attention worldwide. Decreased sorbitol flux through polyol pathway by ARIs could be an emerging target for the management of major complications of diabetes...

Aldose reductase (AR) is known to play a crucial role in the mediation of diabetic and cardiovascular complications. Recently, several studies have demonstrated that allergen-induced airway remodeling and ovalbumin-induced asthma is mediated by AR. Epalrestat is an aldose reductase inhibitor that is currently available for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Whether AR is involved in pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis and whether epalrestat attenuates pulmonary fibrosis remains unknown. Pulmonary fibrosis was induced by intratracheal instillation of bleomycin (5 mg/kg) in rats...

Autonomic neuropathy, one of the serious complications of diabetes, decreases quality of life. Aldose reductase inhibitor (ARI) blocks sorbitol production, and results in prevention of damage of nerve fibers. Beneficial effects of ARI have usually been confirmed through nerve conduction velocity tests in motor and sensory nerves. On the other hand, few reports have dealt with the effects of ARI on the small fiber activity such as sympathetic nerve one. In the present study, we administered eparlestat, ARI orally for 3weeks, to streptozotocin-induced diabetic (STZ+ARI) rats, and then recorded peripheral sympathetic nervous signal detected with microneurographic technique...

Propofol is a widely used intravenous anesthetic agent with antioxidant/antiapoptotic properties. Aldose reductase (AR) has been implicated in oxidative stress and apoptosis in endothelial cells. AR inhibition may protect cells from cardiovascular injury. Although the cytoprotective effect of propofol against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced injury has been widely studied, there is no information about the effects of propofol on AR. We therefore investigated the effect of propofol on H2O2-mediated injury and on aldose reductase expression...
