A reversible synthetic rotary molecular motor. (1/10)

The circumrotation of a submolecular fragment in either direction in a synthetic molecular structure is described. The movement of a small ring around a larger one occurs through positional displacements arising from biased Brownian motion that are kinetically captured and then directionally released. The sense of rotation is governed solely by the order in which a series of orthogonal chemical transformations is performed. The minimalist nature of the [2]catenane flashing ratchet design permits certain mechanistic comparisons with the Smoluchowski-Feynman ratchet and pawl. Even when no work has to be done against an opposing force and no net energy is used to power the motion, a finite conversion of energy is intrinsically required for the molecular motor to undergo directional rotation. Nondirectional rotation has no such requirement.  (+info)

Chemical peristalsis. (2/10)

Molecules that emulate in part the remarkable capabilities of protein motors were recently chemically synthesized. A promising approach is based on physically interlocked macromolecular complexes such as rotaxanes and catenanes. Using the latter, Leigh et al. [Leigh, D. A., Wong, J. K. Y., Dehez, F. & Zerbetto, F. (2003) Nature 424, 174-179] constructed a molecular rotor in which two small rings are induced by pulses of light to move unidirectionally around a third, larger ring. The mechanism is similar to that by which a peristaltic pump operates. Unlike macroscopic peristalsis, however, in which a traveling wave forces material through a series of one-way valves, the chemical peristaltic mechanism does not directly cause the small rings to move but only alters the energetics, with the motion itself arising by thermal activation over energy barriers. Engines operating by this mechanism are "Brownian" motors. Here we describe a minimal two-state mechanism for a catenane-based molecular motor. Although fluctuations caused by equilibrium processes cannot drive directed motion, nonequilibrium fluctuations, whether generated externally or by a far-from-equilibrium chemical reaction, can drive rotation even against an external torque. We discuss a possible architecture for input and output of information and energy between the motor and its environment and give a simple expression for the maximum thermodynamic efficiency. The proposed Brownian motor mechanism is consistent with the high efficiency observed by Yasuda et al. [Yasuda, Y., Noji, H., Kinoshita, K. & Yoshida, M. (1998) Cell 93, 1117-1124] for the F(1)-ATP synthase operating as an ATP-powered molecular rotor.  (+info)

Amplification of acetylcholine-binding catenanes from dynamic combinatorial libraries. (3/10)

Directed chemical synthesis can produce a vast range of molecular structures, but the intended product must be known at the outset. In contrast, evolution in nature can lead to efficient receptors and catalysts whose structures defy prediction. To access such unpredictable structures, we prepared dynamic combinatorial libraries in which reversibly binding building blocks assemble around a receptor target. We selected for an acetylcholine receptor by adding the neurotransmitter to solutions of dipeptide hydrazones [proline-phenylalanine or proline-(cyclohexyl)alanine], which reversibly combine through hydrazone linkages. At thermodynamic equilibrium, the dominant receptor structure was an elaborate [2]-catenane consisting of two interlocked macrocyclic trimers. This complex receptor with a 100 nM affinity for acetylcholine could be isolated on a preparative scale in 67% yield.  (+info)

Bovine mitochondrial peroxiredoxin III forms a two-ring catenane. (4/10)

A crystal structure is reported for the C168S mutant of a typical 2-Cys peroxiredoxin III (Prx III) from bovine mitochondria at a resolution of 3.3 A. Prx III is present as a two-ring catenane comprising two interlocking dodecameric toroids that are assembled from basic dimeric units. Each ring has an external diameter of 150 A and encompasses a central cavity that is 70 A in width. The concatenated dodecamers are inclined at an angle of 55 degrees, which provides a large contact surface between the rings. Dimer-dimer contacts involved in toroid formation are hydrophobic in nature, whereas the 12 areas of contact between interlocked rings arise from polar interactions. These two major modes of subunit interaction provide important insights into possible mechanisms of catenane formation.  (+info)

Dynamic donor-acceptor [2]catenanes. (5/10)

Donor-acceptor [2]catenanes based on cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) as the pi-acceptor ring have been used prominently in the construction of functional molecular devices. We report here their thermodynamically controlled synthesis from isolated pi-donor and pi-acceptor rings under the catalytic influence of tetra butylammonium iodide. The initial nucleophilic attack of iodide ion, which opens up the pi-acceptor ring, is followed by complexation to the pi-donor ring and the subsequent catenation of the pi-donor ring by the pi-acceptor ring [2]catenane. The reaction is general in scope and proceeds in high yields, without giving rise to side-products.  (+info)

A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Japan has developed a way to create catenanes and a molecular trefoil knot out of para-connected benzene rings. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their process and possible uses of their results. Jeff Van Raden, and Ramesh Jasti with the University of Oregon, have published a Perspective piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue. In recent years, carbon-based materials such as graphene, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes have captured the imagination of scientists-such materials have a wide range of unique physical properties that make them useful for certain applications. Graphene, for example, is a zero-gap semiconductor. Scientists have also been looking at ways in which such structures can be formed. In this new effort, the researchers have found a way to get benzene rings to form into two kinds of catenanes, and also a trefoil knot. Catenanes are a type of molecular architecture ...
Benzylic amide catenanes are a class of synthetically-accessible interlocked molecular rings which can rotate one through the other depending on the nature of the local environment. The rings contain four phenyl units each and interlocking also affords their packing in novel, highly interacting ways that may lead to unexpected properties thus opening up the possibility of developing new materials. Third harmonic generation in benzylic amide catenane solutions was measured at a wavelength of lambda = 1064 nm, with the fundamental and the harmonic wavelengths in the region of transparency of the material. The thoroughly non resonant value of the hyperpolarisability gamma(-3 omega; omega, omega, omega) was found to be (6.5 +/- 0.7) x 10(-35) esu with a neg ligible imaginary part, in agreement with the value of (6.8 +/- 0.9)x 10(-35) esu calculated from a bond-additivity model of hyperpolarisability. The static second order hyperpolarisability predicted by a Molecular Orbital model was about a ...
The synthesis and anion binding properties of novel halogen-bonding (XB) bis-iodotriazole-pyridinium-containing acyclic and {[}2]catenane anion host systems are described. The XB acyclic receptor displays selectivity for acetate over halides with enhanced anion recognition properties compared to the analogous hydrogen-bonding (HB) acyclic receptor. A reversal in halide selectivity is observed in the XB {[}2]catenane, in comparison to the acyclic XB receptor, due to the interlocked hosts unique three-dimensional binding cavity, and no binding is observed for oxoanions. Notable halide anion association constant values determined for the {[}2]catenane in competitive organicaqueous solvent mixtures demonstrate considerable enhancement of anion recognition as compared to the HB catenane analogue. X-ray crystallographic analysis of a series of halide catenane complexes reveal strong XB interactions in the solid state. These interactions were studied using Cl and Br K-edge X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy ...

The discovery of the B-form structure of DNA by Watson and Crick led to an explosion of research on nucleic acids in the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, and genetics. Powerful techniques were developed to reveal a myriad of different structural conformations that change B-DNA as it is transcribed, replicated, and recombined and as sister chromosomes are moved into new daughter cell compartments during cell division. This article links the original discoveries of superhelical structure and molecular topology to non-B form DNA structure and contemporary biochemical and biophysical techniques. The emphasis is on the power of plasmids for studying DNA structure and function. The conditions that trigger the formation of alternative DNA structures such as left-handed Z-DNA, inter- and intra-molecular triplexes, triple-stranded DNA, and linked catenanes and hemicatenanes are explained. The DNA dynamics and topological issues are detailed for stalled replication forks and for torsional and structural

Mixed metallo-porphyrin cages were selected and amplified from dynamic combinatorial libraries (DCLs) by using appropriate templates. The cages are composed of two bisphosphine substituted zinc(II) porphyrins as ligand donors and two rhodium(III) or ruthenium(II) porphyrins as ligand acceptors, and are connected through metal-phosphorus coordination. Ru and Rh porphyrins that display a large structural diversity were employed. The templating was achieved by using 4,4-bpy, 3,3-dimethyl-4,4-bipyridine and benzo[lmn]-3,8-phenanthroline, and acts through zinc-nitrogen coordination. The absolute amount of amplification from the DCLs is strongly dependent on the combination of the Ru/Rh porphyrin and the template; cages with sterically demanding porphyrins can only form with smaller templates. In the case of tert-butyl-substituted TPP (TPP=tetraphenylporphyrin), cages are not formed at all. The formation of the cages is usually complete within 24 h at an ambient temperature; in the case of the cage ...
We have demonstrated that, in Escherichia coli, quinolone antimicrobial agents target topoisomerase IV (topo IV). The inhibition of topo IV becomes apparent only when gyrase is mutated to quinolone resistance. In such mutants, these antibiotics caused accumulation of replication catenanes, which is diagnostic of a loss of topo IV activity. Mutant forms of topo IV provided an additional 10-fold resistance to quinolones and prevented drug-induced catenane accumulation. Drug inhibition of topo IV differs from that of gyrase. (i) Wild-type topo IV is not dominant over the resistant allele. (ii) Inhibition of topo IV leads to only a slow stop in replication. (iii) Inhibition of topo IV is primarily bacteriostatic. These differences may result from topo IV acting behind the replication fork, allowing for repair of drug-induced lesions. We suggest that this and a slightly higher intrinsic resistance of topo IV make it secondary to gyrase as a quinolone target. Our results imply that the quinolone ...
The tyrosine family of recombinases produces two smaller DNA circles when acting on circular DNA harboring two recombination sites in head-to-tail orientation. If the substrate is supercoiled, these circles can be unlinked or form multiply linked catenanes. The topological complexity of the products varies strongly even for similar recombination systems. This dependence has been solved here. Our computer simulation of the synapsis showed that the bend angles, phi, created in isolated recombination sites by protein binding before assembly of the full complex, determine the product topology. To verify the validity of this theoretical finding we measured the values of phi for Cre/loxP and Flp/FRT systems. The measurement was based on cyclization of the protein-bound short DNA fragments in solution. Despite the striking similarity of the synapses for these recombinases, action of Cre on head-to-tail target sites produces mainly unlinked circles, while that of Flp yields multiply linked catenanes.

Ethylene cross-bridged cyclam with two acetate pendant arms, ECB-TE2A, is known to form the most kinetically stable 64Cu complexes. However, its usefulness as a bifunctional chelator is limited because of its harsh radiolabeling conditions. Herein, we report new cross-bridged cyclam chelator for the development of ultrastable 64Cu-radiolabeled bioconjugates. Propylene cross-bridged TE2A (PCB-TE2A) was successfully synthesized in an efficient way. The Cu(II) complex of PCB-TE2A exhibited much higher kinetic stability than ECB-TE2A in acid decomplexation studies, and also showed high resistance to reduction-mediated demetalation. Furthermore, the quantitative radiolabeling of PCB-TE2A with 64Cu was achieved under milder conditions compared to ECB-TE2A. Biodistribution studies strongly indicate that the 64Cu complexes of PCB-TE2A cleared out rapidly from the body with minimum decomplexation. © 2012 American Chemical Society. ...
Dynamic combinatorial chemistry utilises reversible reactions to set up a dynamic library of molecules, with the library composition determined by the thermodynamic stability of each library member. Upon addition of a protein template, any library members which bind to the template are stabilised and amplified. Analysis of the library composition enables the identification of molecules which bind to the template protein. The suitability of two enzyme catalysed reactions catalysed by N-acetylneuraminic acid aldolase and subtilisin® Carlsberg was investigated for use in the synthesis of a DCL. A 173 component dynamic combinatorial library was successfully synthesised using these reactions with the resulting library screened against two protein template molecules, wheat germ agglutinin and Div1B. Several methods were investigated for the simplification of DCL analysis including the immobilisation of protein template molecules and the segregation of DCL proteins using semi-permiable membranes, ...

Catenanes, rotaxanes and knots are characterized by their mechanically interlocked architectures. These molecules are of interest to scientists due to their rare and curious presence in nature, difficulty to synthesize, and potential for use in molecular machines. While synthetic organic chemists have made great strides in creating these entangled structures, very few examples exist in protein-based biological macromolecules. Lasso peptides are one of the only naturally occurring examples of a [1]rotaxane structure in protein space. These molecules are ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified into their unique threaded fold. Many of these peptides harbor native biological activity and impressive topological stability, and their potential use as a bioactive scaffold has motivated research in the field.

Mitochondria are involved either directly or indirectly in oncogenesis and the alteration of metabolism in cancer cells. Cancer cells contain large numbers of abnormal mitochondria and produce large amounts of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Oxidative stress is caused by an imbalance between the production of ROS and the antioxidant capacity of the cell. Several cancer therapies, such as chemotherapeutic drugs and radiation, disrupt mitochondrial homeostasis and release cytochrome c, leading to apoptosome formation, which activates the intrinsic pathway. This is modulated by the extent of mitochondrial oxidative stress. The peroxiredoxin (Prx) system is a cellular defense system against oxidative stress, and mitochondria in cancer cells are known to contain high levels of Prx III. Here, we review accumulating evidence suggesting that mitochondrial oxidative stress is involved in cancer, and discuss the role of the mitochondrial Prx III antioxidant system as a potential target for cancer therapy. We hope

Aromatic donor-acceptor interactions have been utilized by the Iverson group in the development of abiotic molecules, called aedamers, that achieve new folding motifs, intermolecular association in heteroduplexes, and new material properties. These molecules exploit the interaction between the electron-rich 1,5-dialkoxynapthalene (DAN) and electron-deficient 1,4,5,8-naphthalenetetracarboxylic diimide (NDI) units in a face-centered stacking geometry in aqueous solution. This dissertation describes the use of DAN-NDI interactions in the realm of peptides and proteins to expand the scope for applications of this interaction. This work specifically focuses on three areas of aromatic donor-acceptor interactions: achieving protein behavior with abiotic molecules, introducing the interaction into natural peptides, and utilizing the interaction in the intermolecular association of an abiotic molecule and a natural peptide. Chapter 2 refines the model of aggregation of an amphiphilic aedamer, which forms ...

Transformation of mechanically interlocked molecules (e.g., rotaxanes and catenanes) into nanoscale materials or devices is an important step towards their real applications. In our current work, an azobenzene-modified β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) derivative that can form a self-inclusion complex in aqueous solution was prepared. The self-included β-CD derivative was then functionalized onto a gold nanoparticle (AuNP) surface via a ligand-exchange reaction in aqueous solution, leading to the formation of AuNP-[1]rotaxane hybrids. Corresponding non-self-included β-CD derivative functionalized AuNPs were also developed in a DMF/H2O mixture solution for control experiments. These hybrids were fully characterized by UV-vis and circular dichroism spectroscopies, together with transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The competitive binding behavior of the hybrids with an adamantane dimer was investigated.

Racemic mixture - WikipediaRacemic mixture - Wikipedia

Some drug molecules are chiral, and the enantiomers have different effects on biological entities. They can be sold as one enantiomer or as a racemic mixture. Examples include thalidomide, ibuprofen, and salbutamol. Adderall is an unequal mixture of both amphetamine enantiomers. A single amphetamine dose combines the neutral sulfate salts of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine, with the dextro isomer of amphetamine saccharate and D/L-amphetamine aspartate monohydrate. The prescription analgesic tramadol is also a racemate. In some cases (e.g., ibuprofen and thalidomide), the enantiomers interconvert or racemize in vivo. This means that preparing a pure enantiomer for medication is largely pointless. However, sometimes samples containing pure enantiomers may be made and sold at a higher cost in cases where the use requires specifically one isomer (e.g., for a stereospecific reagent); compare omeprazole and esomeprazole. While often only one enantiomer of the drug may be active, there are cases in ...

Cis-trans isomerism - WikipediaCis-trans isomerism - Wikipedia

These differences can be very small, as in the case of the boiling point of straight-chain alkenes, such as pent-2-ene, which is 37 °C in the cis isomer and 36 °C in the trans isomer.[4] The differences between cis and trans isomers can be larger if polar bonds are present, as in the 1,2-dichloroethenes. The cis isomer in this case has a boiling point of 60.3 °C, while the trans isomer has a boiling point of 47.5 °C.[5] In the cis isomer the two polar C-Cl bond dipole moments combine to give an overall molecular dipole, so that there are intermolecular dipole-dipole forces (or Keesom forces), which add to the London dispersion forces and raise the boiling point. In the trans isomer on the other hand, this does not occur because the two C−Cl bond moments cancel and the molecule has a net zero dipole (it does however have a non-zero quadrupole). The two isomers of butenedioic acid have such large differences in properties and reactivities that they were actually given completely different ...

  • The basic idea which we put forward in this chapter is that none of the template effects found so far and discussed here is ""traceless"" in the sense that they would not leave functional groups behind in the final rotaxane, catenane, or knotane structure. (fu-berlin.de)
  • Catenanes have been synthesized incorporating many functional units, including redox-active groups (e.g. viologen, TTF=tetrathiafulvalene), photoisomerizable groups (e.g. azobenzene), fluorescent groups and chiral groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • We use large-scale density functional theory calculations to obtain the complete set of vibrational normal modes of the catenane crystal, whose unit cell contains 544 atoms. (uam.es)
  • The first is to simply perform a ring-closing reaction with the hope that some of the rings will form around other rings giving the desired catenane product. (wikipedia.org)
  • A particularly interesting property of many catenanes is the ability of the rings to rotate with respect to one another. (wikipedia.org)
  • When a catenane is synthesized by coordination of the macrocycles around a metal ion, then removal and re-insertion of the metal ion can switch the free motion of the rings on and off. (wikipedia.org)
  • b>Catenane 3 was obtained by self-assembly when the cavity size of the trapezoidal rings was optimised. (rsc.org)
  • These non-covalent interactions offset some of the entropic cost of association and help position the components to form the desired catenane upon the final ring-closing. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mechanically interlocked framework of the catenanes creates the ideal arrangement and ultrahigh local concentration for the encircled TTF units to form stable dimers associated with their discrete oxidation states. (caltech.edu)
  • More recently, the groups of Sanders and Otto have shown that dynamic combinatorial approaches using reversible chemistry can be particularly successful in preparing new catenanes of unpredictable structure. (wikipedia.org)
