Long-range oxidative damage to DNA: effects of distance and sequence. (1/32197)

INTRODUCTION: Oxidative damage to DNA in vivo can lead to mutations and cancer. DNA damage and repair studies have not yet revealed whether permanent oxidative lesions are generated by charges migrating over long distances. Both photoexcited *Rh(III) and ground-state Ru(III) intercalators were previously shown to oxidize guanine bases from a remote site in oligonucleotide duplexes by DNA-mediated electron transfer. Here we examine much longer charge-transport distances and explore the sensitivity of the reaction to intervening sequences. RESULTS: Oxidative damage was examined in a series of DNA duplexes containing a pendant intercalating photooxidant. These studies revealed a shallow dependence on distance and no dependence on the phasing orientation of the oxidant relative to the site of damage, 5'-GG-3'. The intervening DNA sequence has a significant effect on the yield of guanine oxidation, however. Oxidation through multiple 5'-TA-3' steps is substantially diminished compared to through other base steps. We observed intraduplex guanine oxidation by tethered *Rh(III) and Ru(III) over a distance of 200 A. The distribution of oxidized guanine varied as a function of temperature between 5 and 35 degrees C, with an increase in the proportion of long-range damage (> 100 A) occurring at higher temperatures. CONCLUSIONS: Guanines are oxidized as a result of DNA-mediated charge transport over significant distances (e.g. 200 A). Although long-range charge transfer is dependent on distance, it appears to be modulated by intervening sequence and sequence-dependent dynamics. These discoveries hold important implications with respect to DNA damage in vivo.  (+info)

Phosphorylation of the DNA repair protein APE/REF-1 by CKII affects redox regulation of AP-1. (2/32197)

The DNA repair protein apurinic endonuclease (APE/Ref-1) exerts several physiological functions such as cleavage of apurinic/apyrimidinic sites and redox regulation of the transcription factor AP-1, whose activation is part of the cellular response to DNA damaging treatments. Here we demonstrate that APE/Ref-1 is phosphorylated by casein kinase II (CKII). This was shown for both the recombinant APE/Ref-1 protein (Km=0.55 mM) and for APE/Ref-1 expressed in COS cells. Phosphorylation of APE/Ref-1 did not alter the repair activity of the enzyme, whereas it stimulated its redox capability towards AP-1, thus promoting DNA binding activity of AP-1. Inhibition of CKII mediated phosphorylation of APE/Ref-1 blocked mutagen-stimulated increase in AP-1 binding. It also abrogated the induction of c-Jun protein and rendered cells more sensitive to induced DNA damage. Thus, phosphorylation of APE/Ref-1 appears to be involved in regulating the different physiological activities of the enzyme. CKII mediated phosphorylation of APE/Ref-1 and concomitant increase in AP-1 binding activity appears to be a novel mechanism of cellular stress response, forcing transcription of AP-1 target gene(s) the product(s) of which may exert protective function.  (+info)

UV irradiation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in ices: production of alcohols, quinones, and ethers. (3/32197)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in water ice were exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation under astrophysical conditions, and the products were analyzed by infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometry. Peripheral carbon atoms were oxidized, producing aromatic alcohols, ketones, and ethers, and reduced, producing partially hydrogenated aromatic hydrocarbons, molecules that account for the interstellar 3.4-micrometer emission feature. These classes of compounds are all present in carbonaceous meteorites. Hydrogen and deuterium atoms exchange readily between the PAHs and the ice, which may explain the deuterium enrichments found in certain meteoritic molecules. This work has important implications for extraterrestrial organics in biogenesis.  (+info)

Molecular dynamics of the sodium channel pore vary with gating: interactions between P-segment motions and inactivation. (4/32197)

Disulfide trapping studies have revealed that the pore-lining (P) segments of voltage-dependent sodium channels undergo sizable motions on a subsecond time scale. Such motions of the pore may be necessary for selective ion translocation. Although traditionally viewed as separable properties, gating and permeation are now known to interact extensively in various classes of channels. We have investigated the interaction of pore motions and voltage-dependent gating in micro1 sodium channels engineered to contain two cysteines within the P segments. Rates of catalyzed internal disulfide formation (kSS) were measured in K1237C+W1531C mutant channels expressed in oocytes. During repetitive voltage-clamp depolarizations, increasing the pulse duration had biphasic effects on the kSS, which first increased to a maximum at 200 msec and then decreased with longer depolarizations. This result suggested that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state (IM) facilitates pore motions. Consistent with the known antagonism between alkali metals and a component of slow inactivation, kSS varied inversely with external [Na+]o. We examined the converse relationship, namely the effect of pore flexibility on gating, by measuring recovery from inactivation in Y401C+E758C (YC/EC) channels. Under oxidative conditions, recovery from inactivation was slower than in a reduced environment in which the spontaneous YC/EC cross-link is disrupted. The most prominent effects were slowing of a component with intermediate recovery kinetics, with diminution of its relative amplitude. We conclude that occupancy of an intermediate inactivation state facilitates motions of the P segments; conversely, flexibility of the P segments alters an intermediate component of inactivation.  (+info)

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2, platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, generates two bioactive products during the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein: use of a novel inhibitor. (5/32197)

A novel and potent azetidinone inhibitor of the lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2), i.e. platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, is described for the first time. This inhibitor, SB-222657 (Ki=40+/-3 nM, kobs/[I]=6. 6x10(5) M-1.s-1), is inactive against paraoxonase, is a poor inhibitor of lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase and has been used to investigate the role of Lp-PLA2 in the oxidative modification of lipoproteins. Although pretreatment with SB-222657 did not affect the kinetics of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation by Cu2+ or an azo free-radical generator as determined by assay of lipid hydroperoxides (LOOHs), conjugated dienes and thiobarbituric acid-reacting substances, in both cases it inhibited the elevation in lysophosphatidylcholine content. Moreover, the significantly increased monocyte chemoattractant activity found in a non-esterified fatty acid fraction from LDL oxidized by Cu2+ was also prevented by pretreatment with SB-222657, with an IC50 value of 5.0+/-0.4 nM. The less potent diastereoisomer of SB-222657, SB-223777 (Ki=6.3+/-0.5 microM, kobs/[I]=1.6x10(4) M-1.s-1), was found to be significantly less active in both assays. Thus, in addition to generating lysophosphatidylcholine, a known biologically active lipid, these results demonstrate that Lp-PLA2 is capable of generating oxidized non-esterified fatty acid moieties that are also bioactive. These findings are consistent with our proposal that Lp-PLA2 has a predominantly pro-inflammatory role in atherogenesis. Finally, similar studies have demonstrated that a different situation exists during the oxidation of high-density lipoprotein, with enzyme(s) other than Lp-PLA2 apparently being responsible for generating lysophosphatidylcholine.  (+info)

The Pseudomonas aeruginosa secretory product pyocyanin inactivates alpha1 protease inhibitor: implications for the pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis lung disease. (6/32197)

Alpha1 Protease inhibitor (alpha1PI) modulates serine protease activity in the lung. Reactive oxygen species inactivate alpha1PI, and this process has been implicated in the pathogenesis of a variety of forms of lung injury. An imbalance of protease-antiprotease activity is also detected in the airways of patients with cystic fibrosis-associated lung disease who are infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. P. aeruginosa secretes pyocyanin, which, through its ability to redox cycle, induces cells to generate reactive oxygen species. We tested the hypothesis that redox cycling of pyocyanin could lead to inactivation of alpha1PI. When alpha1PI was exposed to NADH and pyocyanin, a combination that results in superoxide production, alpha1PI lost its ability to form an inhibitory complex with both porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE) and trypsin. Similarly, addition of pyocyanin to cultures of human airway epithelial cells to which alpha1PI was also added resulted in a loss of the ability of alpha1PI to form a complex with PPE or trypsin. Neither superoxide dismutase, catalase, nor dimethylthiourea nor depletion of the media of O2 to prevent formation of reactive oxygen species blocked pyocyanin-mediated inactivation of alpha1PI. These data raise the possibility that a direct interaction between reduced pyocyanin and alpha1PI is involved in the process. Consistent with this possibility, pretreatment of alpha1PI with the reducing agent beta-mercaptoethanol also inhibited binding of trypsin to alpha1PI. These data suggest that pyocyanin could contribute to lung injury in the P. aeruginosa-infected airway of cystic fibrosis patients by decreasing the ability of alpha1PI to control the local activity of serine proteases.  (+info)

Prior protein intake may affect phenylalanine kinetics measured in healthy adult volunteers consuming 1 g protein. kg-1. d-1. (7/32197)

Study of the amino acid metabolism of vulnerable groups, such as pregnant women, children and patients, is needed. Our existing protocol is preceded by 2 d of adaptation to a low 13C formula diet at a protein intake of 1 g. kg-1. d-1 to minimize variations in breath 13CO2 enrichment and protein metabolism. To expand on our potential study populations, a less invasive protocol needs to be developed. We have already established that a stable background 13CO2 enrichment can be achieved on the study day without prior adaptation to the low 13C formula. Therefore, this study investigates phenylalanine kinetics in response to variations in prior protein intake. Healthy adult subjects were each fed nutritionally adequate mixed diets containing 0.8, 1.4 and 2.0 g protein. kg-1. d-1 for 2 d. On d 3, subjects consumed an amino acid-based formula diet containing the equivalent of 1 g protein. kg-1. d-1 hourly for 10 h and primed hourly oral doses of L-[1-13C]phenylalanine for the final 6 h. Phenylalanine kinetics were calculated from plasma-free phenylalanine enrichment and breath 13CO2 excretion. A significant quadratic response of prior protein intake on phenylalanine flux (P = 0.012) and oxidation (P = 0.009) was identified, such that both variables were lower following adaptation to a protein intake of 1.4 g. kg-1. d-1. We conclude that variations in protein intake, between 0.8 and 2.0 g. kg-1. d-1, prior to the study day may affect amino acid kinetics and; therefore, it is prudent to continue to control protein intake prior to an amino acid kinetics study.  (+info)

Chaperone activity with a redox switch. (8/32197)

Hsp33, a member of a newly discovered heat shock protein family, was found to be a very potent molecular chaperone. Hsp33 is distinguished from all other known molecular chaperones by its mode of functional regulation. Its activity is redox regulated. Hsp33 is a cytoplasmically localized protein with highly reactive cysteines that respond quickly to changes in the redox environment. Oxidizing conditions like H2O2 cause disulfide bonds to form in Hsp33, a process that leads to the activation of its chaperone function. In vitro and in vivo experiments suggest that Hsp33 protects cells from oxidants, leading us to conclude that we have found a protein family that plays an important role in the bacterial defense system toward oxidative stress.  (+info)

The reaction was initialed by heated wire, which was set in the center of a pressurized reaction chamber. At the initial stage of the reaction, the methanol selectivity was as high as 90%, but its level decreased quickly with proceeding of the reaction time. When the reaction pressure was raised from 5 to 40atm, the methanol selectivity (at high O2 conversion level) was increased from 2% to 30% whereas selectivities of C2 hydrocarbons of CO2 decreased 30% to 10% or less.

N,N-Dialkylhydroxylamines where the alkyl groups are of 10 to 30 carbon atoms are prepared by an improved process involving the direct oxidation of the corresponding N,N-dialkylamines with aqueous hydrogen peroxide in a lower alkanol solvent in the absence of a catalyst or a sequestering agent. The improved process prevents the problem of over-oxidation and gives the desired N,N-dialkylhydroxylamine in high yield and purity. The N,N-dialkylhydroxylamines are effective stabilizers for polymer compositions particularly as process stabilizers for polyolefins.
From the stock market to politics, keeping gains and losses straight these days can be confusing. Scientific gains and losses can be equally overwhelming. Thankfully, in Mondays Scientific Spotlight Session on Redox Biology in Thrombosis, the pathways involved in electron losses and gains and their effect on platelet biology were highlighted by two thought leaders.. Reactive oxygen species (ROS), a type of unstable molecule, are a natural byproduct of aerobic metabolism involved in endogenous signaling. A buildup of ROS is associated with oxidative stress and is implicated in disease states, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegeneration, and aging. ROS and redox biology have received significant attention in vascular biology; however, there has previously been little focus on ROS production by, and influences on, platelet function.

Tasks:. Scientific tasks are primarily placed within the oxidation area where model studies are used to describe the mechanisms behind oxidation processes in proteins as well as in protein-/lipid models. The models are particularly used to study how oxidation affects the protein structure and how the protein structure influences different oxidation processes (e.g. light, enzymes and transition metal ions). Accessibility of proteases is also used as a measurement of changes of the protein structure (at primary and higher protein structure levels) after oxidation. Knowledge from model studies is carried on to dairy products such as milk, powder and cheese where the oxidation processes are described as direct measurement of primary oxidation products (e.g. free radicals and protein and lipid peroxides) and also secondary oxidation products (e.g. dityrosine, protein carbonyl at amino acid level and lipid carbonyls).. Methods: Mass spectrometry (Ion-trap, MALDI ToF-ToF and GC-MS), spectroscopic ...
The possibility of employing cellular automata (CA) to model photo-induced oxidation processes in molecularly doped polymers is explored. It is demonstrated that the oxidation dynamics generated using CA models exhibit stretched-exponential behavior. This dynamical characteristic is in general agreement with an alternative analysis conducted using standard rate equations provided the molecular doping levels are sufficiently low to prohibit the presence of safe-sites which are impenetrable to dissolved oxygen. The CA models therefore offer the advantage of exploring the effect of dopant agglomeration which is difficult to assess from standard rate equation solutions. The influence of UV-induced bleaching or darkening upon the resulting oxidation dynamics may also be easily incorporated into the CA models and these optical effects are investigated for various photo-oxidation product scenarios. Output from the CA models is evaluated for experimental photo-oxidation data obtained from a series of hydrazone
Reduction/oxidation (Redox) reactions chemically convert hazardous contaminants to less toxic compounds that are less mobile and/or inert. Redox reactions involve the transfer of electrons from one compound to another. One compound is oxidized (loses electrons) and one is reduced (gains electrons). Oxidizing agents most commonly used for treatment of hazardous contaminants are ozone, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorite, chlorine, and chlorine dioxide. The reducing agents most commonly used for treatment of hazardous waste are ferrous sulfate, sodium bisulfite, and sodium hydrosulfite.

The present invention relates to an integrated process and apparatus for supplying at least a portion of, or substantially all, or all of the reducing gas feedstock to a reduction reactor, such as a reactor for the direct reduction of iron, wherein the reducing gas contacts a feed material at a mean operating gas pressure and effects reduction of the feed material to provide a reduced product. The integrated process includes the production of a hydrogen-rich gas by the partial oxidation of a hydrocarbonaceous feedstock to produce a hydrogen-rich gas, which can also be referred to as a synthesis gas or syngas. The synthesis gas is at a pressure substantially greater than the mean operating gas pressure in the reduction reactor. The synthesis gas is expanded to lower its pressure to substantially the mean operating gas pressure in the DRI reduction reactor to thereby form the reducing gas feedstock at the pressure conditions used for the DRI reaction.

The high CO conversion realized at high temperatures is attributed to the unique property of single-atom ...
Under normal physiological conditions, ROS levels are low and ROS detoxification is easily managed by intrinsic antioxidant defence systems. In this context, ROS benefit neuronal health because of their central role in redox signalling. Redox-dependent signalling pathways are made up of redox-sensitive proteins that can undergo reversible oxidation or reduction reactions. The function of redox-sensitive proteins change depending on whether a protein is in its oxidized or reduced state. Thus ROS-RNS interaction influences protein signalling capacity in a redox-dependent manner. ROS and RNS play a key role in a variety of biologically important neural pathways including LTP (long-term potentiation), synaptic plasticity, neurogenesis, neuronal differentiation, apoptosis and the establishment of neuroprotective preconditioning [3,4]. Cellular signalling is also influenced by redox status at the transcriptional level, as numerous transcription factors are redox-sensitive, including NF-κB (nuclear ...

Degradation of the mechanical integrity of cobalt-based superalloys can occur as the carbide network is progressively oxidised during high temperature service. In this study, a heat-treatment aimed at redistributing the carbides was tested on two similar commercial Co-based superalloys, one with high C content (Co-101) and one with low C content (Stellite-21), to determine its influence on oxidation resistance. It was found that the carbide phases in the lower C-containing alloy could be solutioned more readily than the higher C-containing alloy, enabling the continuity of the carbide network to be reduced. This resulted in a reduced attack of the carbides down the interdendritic channels during oxidation testing, but increased thickness of the oxide overscale ...
Despite recent advances in the field of vascular redox signalling in hypertension, it still remains unclear exactly how ROS cause vascular injury. We hypothesise that regulation of redox-sensitive protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTP) through oxidative modification, is impaired in hypertension. VSMC normotensive (NT) and hypertensive (HT) individuals were stimulated with AngII (10-7 M) and ET-1 (10-7 M). Irreversible oxidation of proteins and PTPs was assessed by oxyblot. Differential gel electrophoresis (DiGE) and CyDye thiol labelling were employed for screening of reversibly oxidised proteome. Irreversible protein oxidation was not affected by AngII or ET-1 in VSMCs from NT and HT subjects. Proteomic data, filtered for FC ,2, detected 2051 spots with 1899 (92.5%) being equally oxidised between NT and HT. In addition, oxidation of 57 (2.9%) spots was increased, while 95 (4.6%) were decreased in HT. Candidate proteins exhibiting consistent changes across three experimental replicates included ...

Our earlier experimental study has shown that exhaust unburnt hydrocarbon emissions from spark-ignition engines can be reduced effectively by using in-cylinder catalysts on the surface of the piston top-land crevice. In order to improve the understanding of the process and mechanism by means of which unburnt hydrocarbon emissions are reduced, a phenomenological mathematical model was developed for catalytic oxidation processes in the piston-ring-pack crevice.This paper describes in details the modelling of the processes of the gas flow, mass diffusion and reaction kinetics in the crevices. The flow in the crevices is assumed to be isothermal and at the temperature of the piston crown surface. The overall rate of reaction is calculated using expressions for mass diffusion for laminar flows in channels and a first-order Arrhenius-type expression for catalytic reaction kinetics of hydrocarbon oxidation over platinum.The model is capable of describing the time-dependent behaviour of the gas flow and ...
The Earths original atmosphere held very little oxygen. This began to change around 2.4 billion years ago when oxygen levels increased dramatically during what scientists call the Great Oxidation Event. The cause of this event has puzzled scientists, but researchers writing in Nature have found indications in ancient sedimentary rocks that it may have been linked to a drop in the level of dissolved nickel in seawater.. The Great Oxidation Event is what irreversibly changed surface environments on Earth and ultimately made advanced life possible, says research team member Dominic Papineau of the Carnegie Institutions Geophysical Laboratory. It was a major turning point in the evolution of our planet, and we are getting closer to understanding how it occurred.. The researchers, led by Kurt Konhauser of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, analyzed the trace element composition of sedimentary rocks known as banded-iron formations, or BIFs, from dozens of different localities around the ...

The reinvestigation of the kinetics of myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity with the use of NADPH as a probe has allowed us to determine the effects of H2O2, Cl- ion and pH on the MPO-dependent production of HOCl. The chlorination rate of NADPH did not depend on NADPH concentration and was entirely related to the rate of production of HOCl by MPO. The overall oxidation of NADPH occurred similarly in the absence of O2 and was insensitive to scavengers of the superoxide radical anion. Experiments performed on the direct oxidation of NADPH by MPO in the presence and the absence of H2O2 showed that neither the rate nor the stoichiometry of the reaction could interfere in the NADPH oxidation process involved in the steady-state chlorination cycle. The oxidation of NADPH was characterized by a decrease in the A339 of the reduced nicotinamide with the concomitant appearance of a new chomophore with absorbance maximum at 274 nm, characterized by isosbestic points at 300 and 238 nm. The reaction product did ...

Quite often oxygen is involved in the oxidation of another atom; therefore it is an oxidant Redox (reduction-oxidation) reactions include all chemical reactions in which atoms have their oxidation state changed. This can be either a simple redox process, such as the oxidation of carbon to yield carbon dioxide (CO2) or the reduction of carbon by hydrogen to yield methane (CH4), or a complex process such as the oxidation of glucose (C6H12O6) in the human body through a series of complex electron transfer processes. Redox reactions, or oxidation-reduction reactions, have a number of similarities to acid-base reactions. Fundamentally, redox reactions are a family of reactions that are concerned with the transfer of electrons between species. The term comes from the two concepts of reduction and oxidation.[1] It can be explained in simple terms: ...
In this study, we provide the first evidence that the MTK1 SAPKKK serves as an oxidative stress sensor that perceives cellular redox states and converts them into intracellular signaling to regulate cell fate decisions such as cell death and cytokine production. This stress sensor is unique in that it does not simply detect intracellular oxidation events but it responds to coupled oxidation and reduction reactions, and it also acts as an effector to induce delayed and sustained activation of SAPK signaling through its C-terminal KD. We found that the three Cys residues (C163/C193/C218) in its N-terminal GBD were critical for the redox sensor function of MTK1. These residues are rapidly oxidized and then gradually reduced following oxidative stress exposure, and, of these residues, the redox regulation of C218 is essential for the activation of the KD. Therefore, the GBD of MTK1 not only binds to the GADD45 proteins to respond to GADD45-inducing stresses (e.g., DNA damage) but also perceives ...
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Alex Archibald.. The phenomenon of air pollution is underpinned by a rich chemistry that is largely determined by the interplay between anthropogenic and biogenic emissions into the atmosphere. Central to this chemistry are the oxidation reactions of hydrocarbons, which play a pivotal role in determining the capacity of a hydrocarbon to pollute the air. However, quantitative and complete measurements of the mechanisms by which oxidation occurs are very uncommon, especially as a function of temperature.. A comprehensive study of one such mechanism, that of i-butanol with the OH radical, will be presented. In this example, multiple branching and sequential oxidation reactions lead to different end products that are determined by the initial site of OH attack. These branching ratios are found to exhibit temperature dependence, and therefore, under real-world conditions would lead to an end product distribution that changes according to both ...
A spectrophotometric investigation of oxidation of chondroitin-4-sulfate (CS) as a sustainable and biodegradable sulfated macromolecule by oxyanion permanganate ion as multi-equivalent oxidant in acid perchlorate solutions at a constant ionic strength of 2.0 mol dm-3 has been studied. The experimental results on the influence of the concentration of the reactants the reaction rates revealed first-order dependence in MnO4- , fractional second-order in [CS] and fractional first-order with respect to the hydrogen ion concentration. The hydrogen acid concentration dependence of the rate constants indicated that the oxidation rates were increased with increasing the acid concentration which means that the oxidation reaction is of acid-catalyzed nature. The oxidation of all other polysaccharides by this oxidant in acidic solutions indicated that the oxidation processes were proceeding throughout two distinct stages. The first stage was relatively slow, followed by a more fast reaction in the second

One way to quantify whether a substance is a strong oxidizing agent or a strong reducing agent is to use the oxidation-reduction potential or redox potential. Strong reducing agents can be said to have a high electron-transfer potential. Strong oxidizing agents have low electron-transfer potential. Oxidizing and reducing agents occur as couples, with a strong reducing agent coupled with a weak oxidizing agent and vice versa. Since these processes involve the transfer of electrons, the measurement of the resulting charge separation can be quantified in voltage measured between the couple and a standard hydrogen half-cell with 1 molar hydrogen and 1 atmosphere of hydrogen pressure on it. The redox potential of the hydrogen is zero at pH=0, but for tabulations a pH=7 is used for the hydrogen and under those conditions its redox potential is -0.421 volts. As a useful reference, the redox potentials of couples that commonly occur in biochemistry can give insight into their roles in biological energy ...

Understanding how oxidation of proteins leads to reversible alterations in protein function is relevant for proteins involved in cellular signaling processes, including protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs). Two groups, Salmeen et al. and van Montfort et al., show that PTP1B is reversibly oxidized by such chemicals as hydrogen peroxide or 2-phenyl-isoxazalidine-3,5-dione and forms a previously uncharacterized sulfenyl-amide because of oxidation of the catalytic site cysteine. Both groups analyzed the crystal structure of PTP1B after exposure to oxidizing conditions and identified the formation of the sulfenyl-amide, which caused large changes in the conformation of the active site. Salmeen et al. reported inhibition of substrate binding in the peroxide-exposed PTP1B, consistent with the structural changes blocking substrate recognition. This novel intermediate may effectively protect PTP1B from irreversible inactivation that would result from the formation of sulfinic or sulfonic acids.. A. ...
Cysteines play important roles in the biochemistry of many proteins. The high reactivity, redox properties, and ability of the free thiol group to coordinate metal ions designate cysteines as the amino acids of choice to form key catalytic components of many enzymes. Also, cysteines readily react with reactive oxygen and nitrogen species to form reversible oxidative thiol modifications. Over the last few years, an increasing number of proteins have been identified that use redox-mediated thiol modifications to modulate their function, activity, or localization. These redox-regulated proteins are central players in numerous important cellular processes. First aim of this study was to discover nitric oxide (NO) sensitive proteins in E. coli, whose redox-mediated functional changes might explain the physiological alterations observed in E. coli cells suffering from NO-stress. To identify E. coli proteins that undergo reversible thiol modifications upon NO-treatment in vivo, I applied a differential ...
Cancer can be viewed as a state in which the balance between cell proliferation and cell death aberrantly favors the former. We and others have discovered that the intracellular redox environment exerts a profound influence on the normal cellular processes that regulate the balance between proliferation and cell death, including DNA synthesis, enzyme activation, cell cycle progression, proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. In fact, it could be argued that redox homeostasis is central to the governance of cell fate. Unfortunately, molecular mechanisms mediating redox sensitivity and regulation within cells are still poorly defined. Current pharmacological methods to alter intracellular redox state are limited by (i) their inability to operate independent of global biochemical alterations and cellular toxicity, and (ii) the required significant manipulation of culture conditions that perturb intracellular homeostasis. Our genetic constructs overcome these limitations as they enable ...
Apoptosis is a regulated programme by which cells are induced to die in a manner which does not result in pathological inflammatory reactions, and involves dismantling of the cell into membrane-bound fragments that are removed by phagocytosis. This process is induced in order to remodel tissues and maintain homeostasis in cell numbers. Apoptosis may be induced via many pathways, many of which are redox-regulated, and is dysregulated in cancer cells, mainly due to mutational inactivation of certain pathways. Cancer cells also have a non-linear response to redox imbalance, a potentially exploitable characteristic for the therapeutic selective induction of apoptosis in cancer cells in mixed cell populations. Model cell culture systems are required for the selective toxicity testing of anti-cancer drugs, many of which work by inducing redox stress. In the current study, hydrogen peroxide was selected as the redox stress-inducing agent, and the test cells were an immortal, non-invasive breast ...
This process pertains to a achieving high on-stream time and maintaining the temperature and composition of the raw effluent gas stream from a partial oxidation gas generator being fed simultaneously with a stream of gaseous fuel and separate stream of liquid hydrocarbonaceous fuel. Two parallel oxygen streams equipped with flow transmitters and control valves are used to supply the oxygen associated with two separate and different fuel streams. Each stream of oxygen is controlled by an O2 /fuel ratio control so that if the flow rate of either stream of fuel or its related oxygen stream changes, the oxygen/carbon atomic ratio of the remaining O2 and fuel stream in the gasifier is maintained at a desired value. Further, if either fuel flow is stopped, its associated O2 flow will stop, but the remaining fuel stream and its associated O2 stream will continue to flow at the same rate with no change in the oxygen/fuel weight ratio. Complete shut down of the unit is thereby avoided. The quick raising of

The oxidation of dibenzoazepine derivatives has been proposed in the literature to lead to an intensively colored dimer, which is a product of a four-electron oxidation process [15]. Electrospray ionization MS spectra (Scheme 1, Fig. S2, Supporting Information) show the presence of molecular and characteristic fragmentation peaks for dimer 7: 557 (M-H), 279 (M-C19H23N2 monomer) m/z; dimer 8: 474 (MH+), 388 (M-C5H12N), 86 (M-C28H24N2) m/z; dimer 9: 388 (M+•) m/z; methyl derivative of dimer: 488 (MH+, low abundance) m/z; hydroxy derivative of imipramine: 297 (MH+, low abundance), 279 (M-OH), 86 (M-C14H13NO) m/z. The molecular and fragmentation peaks for imipramine (6) were as follows: 281 (MH+), 236 (M-C2H6N), 208 (M-C4H10N), 86 (M-C14H12N), 58 (M-C16H16N) m/z. A cleavage of the alkyl substituent, which leads to the formation of dimers 8 and 9, occurs at the stage of oxidation of the compound but is not due to the spontaneous degradation process because an analogous process does not occur in the ...
The low-temperature reaction of [CrCl3(thf)3] with LiC6H3Cl2-2,6 yields the organochromium(III) compound [Li(thf)4][CrIII(C6H3Cl2-2,6)4] (1) in 48% yield. The homoleptic, anionic species [CrIII(C6H3Cl2-2,6)4]− is electrochemically related to the neutral one [CrIV(C6H3Cl2-2,6)4] (2) through a reversible one-electron exchange process (E1/2 = 0.16 V, ΔEp = 0.09 V, ipa/ipc = 1.18). Compound 2 was isolated in 74% yield by chemical oxidation of 1 with [N(C6H4Br-4)3][SbCl6]. Attempts to prepare the salt [NBu4][CrIII(C6Cl5)4] (4) by direct arylation of [CrCl3(thf)3] with LiC6Cl5 in the presence of [NBu4]Br gave the organochromium(II) salt [NBu4]2[CrII(C6Cl5)4] (3) instead, as the result of a reduction process. The salt [NBu4][CrIII(C6Cl5)4] (4) was cleanly prepared by comproportionation of 3 and [CrIV(C6Cl5)4]. The reaction of [MoCl4(dme)] with LiC6Cl5 in Et2O solution proceeded with oxidation of the metal center to give the paramagnetic (S = 1/2), five-coordinate salt [Li(thf)4][MoVO(C6Cl5)4] (5). ...

Chemically, oxidation is defined as the removal of electrons and reduction as the gain of electrons. Thus, oxidation of a molecule (the electron donor) is always accompanied by reduction of a second molecule (the electron acceptor). This principle of oxidation-reduction applies equally to biochemical systems and is an important concept underlying understanding of the nature of biologic oxidation. Note that many biologic oxidations can take place without the participation of molecular oxygen, for example, dehydrogenations. The life of higher animals is absolutely dependent upon a supply of oxygen for respiration, the process by which cells derive energy in the form of ATP from the controlled reaction of hydrogen with oxygen to form water. In addition, molecular oxygen is incorporated into a variety of substrates by enzymes designated as oxygenases; many drugs, pollutants, and chemical carcinogens (xenobiotics) are metabolized by enzymes of this class, known as the cytochrome P450 system. ...

We developed camptothecin (CPT)-conjugated, core-cross-linked (CCL) micelles that are subject to redox-responsive cleavage of the built-in disulfide bonds, resulting in disruption of the micellar structure and rapid release of CPT. CCL micelles were prepared via coprecipitation of disulfide-containing CPT-poly(tyrosine(alkynyl)-OCA) conjugate and monomethoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(tyrosine(alkynyl)-OCA), followed by cross-linking of the micellar core via azide-alkyne click chemistry. CCL micelles exhibited excellent stability under physiological conditions, while they underwent rapid dissociation in reduction circumstance, resulting in burst release of CPT. These redox-responsive CCL micelles showed enhanced cytotoxicity against human breast cancer cells in vitro.

The heart relies predominantly on a balance between fatty acids and glucose to generate its energy supply. There is an important interaction between the metabolic pathways of these two substrates in the heart. When circulating levels of fatty acids are high, fatty acid oxidation can dominate over glucose oxidation as a source of energy through feedback inhibition of the glucose oxidation pathway. Following an ischaemic episode, fatty acid oxidation rates increase further, resulting in an uncoupling between glycolysis and glucose oxidation. This uncoupling results in an increased proton production, which worsens ischaemic damage. Since high rates of fatty acid oxidation can contribute to ischaemic damage by inhibiting glucose oxidation, it is important to maintain proper control of fatty acid oxidation both during and following ischaemia. An important molecule that controls myocardial fatty acid oxidation is malonyl-CoA, which inhibits uptake of fatty acids into the mitochondria. The levels of ...

Conventional and nanostructured YSZ coatings were deposited on the IN-738 Ni super alloy by the atmospheric plasma spray technique. The oxidation was measured at 1100°C in an atmospheric electrical furnace. According to the experimental results the nanostructured coatings showed a better oxidation resistance than the conventional ones. The improved oxidation resistance of the nanocoating could be explained by the change in structure to a dense and more packed structure in this coating. The mechanical properties of the coatings were tested using the thermal cyclic, nanoindentation and bond strength tests, during which the nanostructured YSZ coating showed a better performance by structural stability.
The importance of oxidation-reduction reactions was recognized from the beginning of chemistry. In oxidation-reduction, some entity is given or taken between two reacting chemicals. The situation is similar to that in acid-base reactions. In brief, oxidation-reduction and acid-base reactions form a pair of systems in chemistry. Oxidation-reduction and acid-base reactions share a common feature in that both had been put into practice before the nature of the reactions was clarified. Important concepts have gradually been developed: for example, the oxidation number, an oxidant (an oxidizing agent), a reductant (a reducing agent), electromotive force, Nernsts equation, Faradays law of electromagnetic induction, and electrolysis. The development of electric cells was significant. Assembling the components of an oxidation-reduction reaction is good practice and a satisfying intellectual challenge. Cells and electrolysis are two particularly important examples because both are strongly related to everyday

|p|We investigate the influence of the thermal annealing process on the transport properties of thin films made of graphene oxide. Specially developed methodology allows us to demonstrate that the thermal annealing process of graphene oxide thin films can be described as a kinetic process with one activation energy, which equals0.94eV ± 0.12eV. Moreover, we show that the electrical transport mechanism evolves with the annealing temperature (reduction level) of GO thin films. We have noticed that the Variable Range Hopping transport model change from 3D, 2D to Efros-Shklvoskii with a reduction level. Our findings contribute to further understanding of the role of kinetics in thermal reduction processes of thin films made of graphene oxide and could be useful in applications in which electrical parameters need to be tuned.|/p|
Patchy occurrences of elevated As are often encountered in groundwater from the shallow aquifers (,50 m) of the Bengal Delta Plain (BDP). A clear understanding of various biogeochemical processes, responsible for As mobilization, is very important to explain this patchy occurrence and thus to mitigate the problem. The present study deals with the periodical monitoring of groundwater quality of five nested piezometeric wells between December 2008 and July 2009 to investigate the temporal changes in groundwater chemistry vis-a-vis the prevalent redox processes in the aquifer. Geochemical modeling has been carried out to identify key phases present in groundwater. A correlation study among different aqueous redox parameters has also been performed to evaluate prevailing redox processes in the aquifer. The long term monitoring of hydrochemical parameters in the multilevel wells together with hydrogeochemical equilibrium modeling has shown more subtle differences in the geochemical environment of the ...
ATP-hydrolysis and proton pumping by the V-ATPase (vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase) are subject to redox regulation in mammals, yeast and plants. Oxidative inhibition of the V-ATPase is ascribed to disulfide-bond formation between conserved cysteine residues at the catalytic site of subunit A. Subunits containing amino acid substitutions of one of three conserved cysteine residues of VHA-A were expressed in a vha-A null mutant background in Arabidopsis. In vitro activity measurements revealed a complete absence of oxidative inhibition in the transgenic line expressing VHA-A C256S, confirming that Cys256 is necessary for redox regulation. In contrast, oxidative inhibition was unaffected in plants expressing VHA-A C279S and VHA-A C535S, indicating that disulfide bridges involving these cysteine residues are not essential for oxidative inhibition. In vivo data suggest that oxidative inhibition might not represent a general regulatory mechanism in plants. ...

Redox events are identified by a change in current at a given potential and the center of that peak is determined as shown in red. In order to evaluate redox titrations, the shape of the corresponding titration curve must be obtained. For example, the redox potential for a lithium ion gaining an electron is shown as the half-reaction: Li + + e--> Li with an E° value of -3.05 volts, indicating that lithium is a strong reducing agent. Typical applications include corrosion monitoring or rusting for example. The C(pH,E)MD method is available since Amber version 18. Or, another example, -0.3 is relatively more positive than -0.9.

It is crucial to develop a catalyst made of earth-abundant elements highly active for a complete oxidation of methane at a relatively low temperature. NiCo2O4 consisting of earth-abundant elements which can completely oxidize methane in the temperature range of 350-550 °C. Being a cost-effective catalyst, NiCo2O4 exhibits activity higher than precious-metal-based catalysts. Here we report that the higher catalytic activity at the relatively low temperature results from the integration of nickel cations, cobalt cations and surface lattice oxygen atoms/oxygen vacancies at the atomic scale. In situ studies of complete oxidation of methane on NiCo2O4 and theoretical simulations show that methane dissociates to methyl on nickel cations and then couple with surface lattice oxygen atoms to form -CH3O with a following dehydrogenation to −CH2O; a following oxidative dehydrogenation forms CHO; CHO is transformed to product molecules through two different sub-pathways including dehydrogenation of OCHO ...

The thermodynamics for the first electron transfer step for sulfide and oxygen indicates that the reaction is unfavorable as unstable superoxide and bisulfide radical ions would need to be produced. However, a two electron transfer is favorable as stable S(0) and peroxide would be formed, but the partially filled orbitals in oxygen that accept electrons prevent rapid kinetics. Abiotic sulfide oxidation kinetics improve when reduced iron and/or manganese are oxidized by oxygen to form oxidized metals which in turn oxidize sulfide. Biological sulfur oxidation relies on enzymes that have evolved to overcome these kinetic constraints to affect rapid sulfide oxidation. Here we review the available thermodynamic and kinetic data for H2S and HS• as well as O2, reactive oxygen species, nitrate, nitrite and NOx species. We also present new kinetic data for abiotic sulfide oxidation with oxygen in trace metal clean solutions that constrain abiotic rates of sulfide oxidation in metal free solution and agree with
MCOs catalyze one-electron oxidation processes, and four molecules of substrate are oxidised in order to reduce a dioxygen molecule to two waters molecules. Substrate oxidation occurs at the mononuclear T1 centre and then the electrons are shuttled, along a T1 coordinating cisteine, to the two histidines that are coordinating the T3 coppers of the trinuclear centre (Figure 1b), where reduction of dioxygen occurs [2, 4, 11]. This constitutes a HCH conserved motif characteristically found in MCOs. Four electrons, as well as four protons, are used to reduce a molecule of dioxygen with the concomitant formation of two water molecules [1, 2, 12]. Electrons needed for this process are obtained through the oxidation of a variety of substrates, but not much is known about the mechanism of proton transfer during this process. Recently, site directed mutagenesis studies suggest that Asp112 of CueO (Asp 116 in CotA; Figure 1c) [13, 14], a conserved residue that is located in the exit channel in close ...
Recall that chemical reactions are all about electrons. In redox (an often used shorthand term for oxidation-reduction) reactions, one is concerned with how electrons are transferred from one species (element, ion, compound) to another. The law of conservation of charge stipulates that if one species loses electrons, there must be another species that gains the electrons. The term oxidation refers to any process that loses electrons. This is a tricky word for some because oxidation sounds like it might only involve oxygen. In truth, oxygen is an important element in redox reactions, and because of its large electronegativity, causes many other elements to give it electrons. Since oxygen often forces other elements to lose electrons, the process of losing electrons became known as oxidation. Reduction is a similarly troubling word, since it refers to a process that gains electrons. In this case, the word reduce has nothing to do with the quantity of electrons, but rather the change in charge. ...

Reduction is a similarly troubling word, since it refers to a process that gains electrons. In this case, the word reduce has nothing to do with the quantity of electrons, but rather the change in charge. ...
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are generated in all aerobic organisms. Free radicals are highly reactive ROS that cause damage to biological materials. Fish is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, and hence, very prone to lipid peroxidation. Both lipid and protein oxidations are important for quality loss during storage of fish, with high impact on taste and texture. Also, there are interactions between protein and secondary lipid oxidation products (aldehydes) that occur in foods because the oxidation products from one reaction can further react with both lipids and proteins respectively. This review focuses on the mechanisms and pathways of the lipid and protein oxidation and their possible relationship. Additionally, the target amino acids and final impacts of this relationship were considered. We propose that the products of lipid oxidation promote protein oxidation in fish rather than the other way around specially, during frozen storage, while during postmortem changes protein oxidation ...
Cysteine Oxidation Prediction Program Goal: Create a program that will use physicochemical parameters to predict reactive surface cysteine thiols Methods: -Gather examples of proteins susceptible to cysteine oxidation -Extract parameters from Protein Data Bank -Use computer classifier C4.5 to determine rules that will predict if cysteine can become oxidized
A 0.4 wt%Pt/Ce0.76Zr0.19Zn0.05O1.95 catalyst was prepared by the evaporative drying method. The catalytic toluene oxidation activity of the catalyst was investigated and the calcination temperature dependence on the toluene oxidation activity was characterized. It was confirmed that only CO2 and steam were produced by the complete oxidation of toluene, and no toluene-derived compounds were detected as by-products with a gas chromatography-mass spectrometer. Toluene was completely oxidized at 320 °C on the 0.4 wt%Pt/Ce0.76Zr0.19Zn0.05O1.95 catalyst calcined at 500 °C. The toluene oxidation activity slightly decreased with increasing the calcination temperature of the catalyst. However, significant deactivation was not recognized in the present 0.4 wt%Pt/Ce0.76Zr0.19Zn0.05O1.95 catalyst, and toluene was completely oxidized at 360 °C even after calcination at 1000 °C. From these results, it became obvious that the 0.4 wt%Pt/Ce0.76Zr0.19Zn0.05O1.95 catalyst has high thermal stability for toluene

Abstract: Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were used to investigate the structural and electronic properties of V-, Cr-, Pd-, Pt-, and Au-doped titania nanotube arrays (TNTAs) where Ti was replaced by dopants. The adsorption of CO and the formation of CO2 on these various nanotube arrays were also studied in detail. We found that CO physisorbed weakly inside the TNTAs and CO was oxidized by lattice oxygen to form CO2 by the redox mechanism. This may thus be attributed to the unique confinement effect and to different metal doping. All the metal doped systems except the Cr-TNTAs showed a lower activation energy barrier than the undoped TNTAs, indicating that proper metal dopants can promote CO oxidation. The reaction on the Pd- or Au-doped TNTAs had the lowest barrier. Therefore, we found that Pd- or Au-doped TNTAs led to enhanced catalytic activity for CO oxidation at low temperatures. Key words: Density functional theory, TiO2 nanotube arrays, CO oxidation ...
Aerobic life, from simple single-celled bacterial species to complex eukaryotic organisms, has evolved to depend on the oxidising power of O2 in various metabolic pathways. From energetic adenosine triphosphate (ATP) generation to xenobiotic degradation, the use of O2 as a biological oxidant is widespread and varied in the mechanism of action. Enzymes, such as non-heme iron-dependent oxygenases, catalyse the incorporation of O2 into a wide range of biological molecules and use diverse strategies to activate their substrates.. C-H activation is currently one of the hottest topics in organic chemistry. One way for this activation to occur is the hydroxylation of the C-H bond. In this area, great advances have been made in recent years by the development of bioinspired non-heme aminopyridine iron complexes/H2O2 catalytic systems. Such systems replicate the oxidation mechanism of the elaborate non-heme iron oxygenases with simple iron coordination complexes.. Notwithstanding the biological ...

Ab initio Molecular Dynamics simulations and static Density Functional Theory calculations have been performed to investigate the reaction mechanism of CO oxidation on Au/CeO 2 catalyst. It is found that under reaction condition CO adsorption significantly labializes the surface atoms of the Au cluster and leads to the formation of isolated Au+-CO species that resides on the support in the vicinity of the Au particle. In this context, we identified a dynamic single-atom catalytic mechanism at the interfacial area for CO oxidation on Au/CeO 2 catalyst, which is a lower energy pathway than that of CO oxidation at the interface with the metal particle. This results from the ability of the single atom site to strongly couple with the redox properties of the support in a synergistic manner thereby lowering the barrier for redox reactions. We find that the single Au+ ion, which only exists under reaction conditions, breaks away from the Au cluster to catalyze CO oxidation and returns to the Au cluster ...
There is a growing concern about pharmaceuticals entering the aquatic environment. Many of these compounds cannot be removed completely in sewage treatment plants. To remove these unwanted medicines from water, oxidative degradation techniques may complement the current purification steps. In this paper we studied the effect of advanced oxidation on the cytostatic drug cyclophosphamide (CP) by comparing thermal plasma activation with UV/H2O2 treatment. Plasma activated water (PAW) contains highly reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) as a result of electric gas discharges in air over water. CP solutions in tap water were oxidized over a period of 120 min and subsequently analyzed by LC-MS/MS to measure the compound degradation. Plasma activation was applied at 50, 100, or 150 W electric power input and UV/H2O2 treatment was carried out by the addition of H2O2 and placing an UV-C source above the test solution for immediate irradiation. The oxidative degradation of CP in PAW resulted in a ...
Adsorption and catalytic oxidation are two promising technologies for indoor volatile organic compounds (VOCs) removal. Combining experimental and modeling approach, the present study aimed at improving the understanding and modeling of adsorption of water-insoluble VOCs (e.g. toluene), and chemisorption and catalytic oxidization of water soluble VOCs (e.g. formaldehyde). For water-insoluble compounds, a dynamic volumetric method was developed for determination of VOC adsorption isotherm of active carbon at low concentration levels. Diffusion coefficient, partition coefficient and mass transfer coefficient of toluene in activated carbon were obtained by comparing numerical modeling results with the adsorption test data. Two mechanistic models were developed for VOCs removal by activated carbon filter bed. Both models fitted well with experimental data. Based on the combined analysis of the experimental and numerical results, external mass transfer and surface diffusion were found to be
Angewandte Books Chemie Mechanisms of Atmospheric Oxidation of the Alkanes The research area covered by this book is the atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric pollution, and photochemical formation of ozone and photooxidants. It essentially focuses on the oxidation of alkanes and haloalkanes, but it also includes the subsequent oxidation processes of primary oxidation products such as aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, nitrates, hydroperoxides, and multifunctional products. It essentially deals with gas-phase chemistry and photochemistry, and thus it includes neither chemistry in the liquid phase nor heterogeneous chemistry on atmospheric particles. The book provides a fairly large number of data on reaction mechanisms, reaction kinetics, product formation, UV absorption spectra, and photochemical reactions, arranged on nearly 1000 pages, with numerous tables and figures and an exhaustive list of references. This volume is a follow-up of two previous books by Calvert et al. on the atmospheric oxidation ...

Emerging data strongly suggest that the oxidation of DNA bases can contribute to genomic instability. Structural changes to DNA, induced by base oxidation, may reduce the fidelity of DNA replication and interfere with sequence-specific DNA−protein interactions. We have examined the structures of a series of pyrimidine deoxynucleoside oxidation damage products in aqueous solution. The modified nucleosides studied include the deoxynucleoside derivatives of 5-hydroxyuracil, 5-hydroxycytosine, 5-(hydroxymethyl)uracil, 5-(hydroxymethyl)cytosine, 5-formyluracil, and 5-formylcytosine. The influence of base oxidation on ionization constants, sugar conformation, and tautomeric configuration has been determined on the basis of UV, proton, and nitrogen NMR spectra of the ^(15)N-enriched derivatives. The potential biological consequences of the structural perturbations resulting from base oxidation are discussed. ...
Superoxide, produced photochemically as well as microbially, is an important reactant present in seawater and a major source of hydrogen peroxide. Superoxide decay may occur through catalyzed or uncatalyzed dismutation forming H2O2 and O2, through oxidation to O2, or through reduction into H2O2. Under definite circumstances, the redox processes that are different from dismutation could produce or consume H+, thereby altering the pH of seawater. In order to alter the pH, these processes have to involve, together with O2•, redox couples that exchange e and H+ in a ratio other than 1:1. This potential pH modification is dependent on several factors, including the extent of H+ imbalance, the rate of formation/transformation of superoxide (which reaches a steady-state concentration in seawater), and the alkalinity of seawater (which varies globally from 2.10 to 2.45 mmol L1 and buffers the pH variations). In the present study, an estimate of the possible pH changes associated with photochemically
