The prevalence of hypertension is very common amongst the diabetic patients and is reported as the major cause of mortality in diabetes. Pioglitazone reported to have an ability to alter the blood cholesterol level and cardioprotective efficiency along with its antidiabetic activity. Telmisartan, through activation of PPAR-γ receptor exerts insulin sensitizing property in addition to its primary cardioprotective efficiency. Theoretically, a combination of pioglitazone and telmisartan may be beneficial to effectively control the high blood glucose level and management of coexisting cardiovascular complication in diabetes...

Oxidative stress plays a fundamental role in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) formation. Activated polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs or neutrophils) are associated with AAA and express myeloperoxidase (MPO), which promotes inflammation, matrix degradation and other pathological features of AAA including enhanced oxidative stress through generation of reactive oxidant species. Both plasma and aortic MPO levels are elevated in patients with AAA, but the role of MPO in AAA pathogenesis has heretofore never been investigated...

Impaired adipogenic differentiation during diet-induced obesity (DIO) promotes adipocyte hypertrophy and inflammation, thereby contributing to metabolic disease. Adenomatosis polyposis coli down-regulated 1 (APCDD1) has recently been identified as an inhibitor of Wnt signaling, a key regulator of adipogenic differentiation. Here we report a novel role for APCDD1 in adipogenic differentiation via repression of Wnt signaling and an epigenetic linkage between miR-130 and APCDD1 in DIO. APCDD1 expression was significantly up-regulated in mature adipocytes compared with undifferentiated preadipocytes in both human and mouse subcutaneous adipose tissues...

A nucleophilic iron-oxygen oxidant, formed in situ in the reaction between an iron(II)-benzilate complex and O2 , oxidatively cleaves the aliphatic C-C bonds of α-hydroxy ketones. In the cleavage reaction, α-hydroxy ketones without any α-C-H bond afford a 1:1 mixture of carboxylic acid and ketone. Isotope labeling studies established that one of the oxygen atoms from dioxygen is incorporated into the carboxylic acid product. Furthermore, the iron(II) complex cleaves an aliphatic C-C bond of 17-α-hydroxyprogesterone affording androstenedione and acetic acid...

Inositol hexa phosphoric acid (IP6) or Phytic acid, a natural antioxidant of some leguminous plants, known to act as a protective agent for seed storage in plants by suppressing iron catalyzed oxidative process. Following the same mechanism, we have tested the effect of IP6 on iron overloaded in vitro oxidative stress, and studied it's in vivo hepatoprotective ability in iron-dextran (injection)-induced iron overloaded liver injury in mice (intraperitoneal). Our results showed that IP6 had in vitro iron chelation (IC50 38...

From UV-vis absorption, steady state and time resolved fluorescence measurements coupled with circular dichroism (CD) spectral studies, it was revealed that among the two lectins: Sambucus nigra agglutinin (SNA) and Saraca indica (saracin II), SNA forms stronger binding complex in the ground state with gold nanoparticles (GNPs). From the measurements of Stern-Volmer (SV) constants Ksv, and binding constants K(A) and number of binding sites two important inferences could be drawn. Firstly, the fluorescence quenching is primarily due to static quenching and secondly SNA forms stronger binding with GNPs relative to the other lectin saracin II...

An iron-oxygen intermediate species generated in situ in the reductive activation of dioxygen by an iron(II)-benzilate complex of a monoanionic facial N3 ligand, promoted the halogenation of aliphatic C-H bonds in the presence of a protic acid and a halide anion. An electrophilic iron(IV)-oxo oxidant with a coordinated halide is proposed as the active oxidant. The halogenation reaction with dioxygen and the iron complex mimics the activity of non-heme iron halogenases.

BACKGROUND: High-fat diet (HFD) promotes endothelial dysfunction and proinflammatory monocyte activation, which contribute to atherosclerosis in obesity. We investigated whether HFD also induces the dysfunction of red blood cells (RBCs), which serve as a reservoir for chemokines via binding to Duffy antigen receptor for chemokines (DARC). METHODS AND RESULTS: A 60% HFD for 12 weeks, which produced only minor changes in lipid profile in C57/BL6 mice, markedly augmented the levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 bound to RBCs, which in turn stimulated macrophage migration through an endothelial monolayer...

Adipose tissue serves as both a storage site for excess calories and as an endocrine organ, secreting hormones such as adiponectin that promote metabolic homeostasis. In obesity, adipose tissue expands primarily by hypertrophy (enlargement of existing adipocytes) rather than hyperplasia (generation of new adipocytes via adipogenic differentiation of preadipocytes). Progressive adipocyte hypertrophy leads to inflammation, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and ectopic lipid deposition, the hallmark characteristics of metabolic disease...

Cardiometabolic disease, emerging as a worldwide epidemic, is a combination of metabolic derangements leading to type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Genetic and environmental factors are linked through epigenetic mechanisms to the pathogenesis of cardiometabolic disease. Post-translational modifications of histone tails, including acetylation and deacetylation, epigenetically alter chromatin structure and dictate cell-specific gene expression patterns. The histone deacetylase family comprises 18 members that regulate gene expression by altering the acetylation status of nucleosomal histones and by functioning as nuclear transcriptional corepressors...

Many iron-containing enzymes involve metal-oxygen oxidants to carry out O2-dependent transformation reactions. However, the selective oxidation of C-H and C=C bonds by biomimetic complexes using O2 remains a major challenge in bioinspired catalysis. The reactivity of iron-oxygen oxidants generated from an Fe(II)-benzilate complex of a facial N3 ligand were thus investigated. The complex reacted with O2 to form a nucleophilic oxidant, whereas an electrophilic oxidant, intercepted by external substrates, was generated in the presence of a Lewis acid...

2-Aminophenol dioxygenases catalyze the oxidative ring cleavage of 2-aminophenol to 2-picolinic acid using O2 as the oxidant. Inspired by the reaction catalyzed by these nonheme iron enzymes, a biomimetic iron(III)-2-amidophenolate complex, [(tBu-L(Me))Fe(III)(4,6-di-tBu-AP)](ClO4) (1a) of a facial tridentate ligand (tBu-L(Me) = 1-[bis(6-methyl-pyridin-2-yl)-methyl]-3-tert-butyl-urea and 4,6-di-tBu-H2AP = 2-amino-4,6-di-tert-butylphenol) bearing a urea group have been isolated. The complex reacts with O2 to cleave the C-C bond of 4,6-di-tBu-AP regioselectively and catalytically to afford 4,6-di-tert-butyl-2-picolinic acid...
