Metabolism of the antimalarial endoperoxide Ro 42-1611 (arteflene) in the rat: evidence for endoperoxide bioactivation. (1/332)

Ro 42-1611 (arteflene) is a synthetic endoperoxide antimalarial. The antimalarial activity of endoperoxides is attributed to iron(II)-mediated generation of carbon-centered radicals. An alpha, beta-unsaturated ketone (enone; 4-[2',4' bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-3-buten-2-one), obtained from arteflene by reaction with iron(II), was identified previously as the stable product of a reaction that, by inference, also yields a cyclohexyl radical. The activation of arteflene in vivo has been characterized with particular reference to enone formation. [14C]Arteflene (35 micromol/kg) was given i.v. to anesthetized and cannulated male rats: 42.2 +/- 7.0% (mean +/- S.D., n = 7) of the radiolabel was recovered in bile over 5 h. In the majority of rats, the principal biliary metabolites were 8-hydroxyarteflene glucuronide (14.2 +/- 3. 9% dose, 0-3 h) and the cis and trans isomers of the enone (13.5 +/- 4.6% dose, 0-3 h). In conscious rats, 15.3 +/- 1.6% (mean +/- S.D., n = 8) of the radiolabel was recovered in urine over 24 h. The principal urinary metabolite appeared to be a glycine conjugate of a derivative of the enone. Biliary excretion of the glucuronide, but not of the enones, was inhibited by ketoconazole. 8-Hydroxyarteflene was formed extensively by rat and human liver microsomes but no enone was found. Bioactivation is a major pathway of arteflene's metabolism in the rat. Although the mechanism of in vivo bioactivation is unclear, the reaction is not catalyzed by microsomal cytochrome P-450 enzymes.  (+info)

Characterization of inhaled alpha-methylstyrene vapor toxicity for B6C3F1 mice and F344 rats. (2/332)

alpha-Methylstyrene (AMS) is a chemical intermediate used in the synthesis of specialty polymers and copolymers. Inhalation studies of AMS were conducted because of the lack of toxicity data and the structural similarity of AMS to styrene, a toxic and potentially carcinogenic chemical. Male and female B6C3F1 mice were exposed to 0, 600, 800, or 1000 ppm AMS 6 h/day, 5 days/week, for 12 days. After 1 exposure, 21% (5/24) of female mice were found dead in the 1000-ppm group, 56% (10/18) in the 800-ppm group, and 6% (1/18) in the 600-ppm concentration group. After 12 exposures, relative liver weights were significantly increased and relative spleen weights were significantly decreased in both male and female mice at all concentrations. No microscopic treatment-related lesions were observed. A decrease in hepatic glutathione (GSH) was associated with AMS exposure for 1 and 5 days. Male and female F344 rats were exposed to 0, 600 or 1000 ppm AMS for 12 days. No mortality or sedation occurred in AMS-exposed rats. Relative liver weights were significantly increased in both males and females after 12 exposures to 600 or 1000 ppm. An increased hyaline droplet accumulation was detected in male rats in both concentration groups; no significant microscopic lesions were observed in other tissues examined. Exposure of male and female F344 rats and male NBR rats to 0, 125, 250 or 500 ppm AMS, 6 h/day for 9 days resulted in increased accumulation of hyaline droplets in the renal tubules of male F344 rats in the 250 and 500 ppm concentration groups. Although AMS and styrene are structurally very similar, AMS was considerably less toxic for mice and more toxic for male rats than styrene.  (+info)

Influence of anions and cations on the dipole potential of phosphatidylcholine vesicles: a basis for the Hofmeister effect. (3/332)

Anions and cations have long been recognized to be capable of modifying the functioning of various membrane-related physiological processes. Here, a fluorescent ratio method using the styrylpyridinium dyes, RH421 and di-8-ANEPPS, was applied to determine the effect of a range of anions and cations on the intramembrane dipole potential of dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine vesicles. It was found that certain anions cause a decrease in the dipole potential. This could be explained by binding within the membrane, in support of a hypothesis originally put forward by A. L. Hodgkin and P. Horowicz [1960, J. Physiol. (Lond.) 153:404-412.] The effectiveness of the anions in reducing the dipole potential was found to be ClO4- > SCN- > I- > NO3- > Br- > Cl- > F- > SO42-. This order could be modeled by a partitioning of ions between the membrane and the aqueous phase, which is controlled predominantly by the Gibbs free energy of hydration. Cations were also found to be capable of reducing the dipole potential, although much less efficiently than can anions. The effects of the cations was found to be trivalent > divalent > monovalent. The cation effects were attributed to binding to a specific polar site on the surface of the membrane. The results presented provide a molecular basis for the interpretation of the Hofmeister effect of lyotropic anions on ion transport proteins.  (+info)

Quantitative analysis of styrene monomer in polystyrene and foods including some preliminary studies of the uptake and pharmacodynamics of the monomer in rats. (4/332)

A variety of food containers, drinking cups and cutlery, fabricated from polystyrene (PS) or polystyrene-related plastic, were analyzed for their styrene monomer content. Samples of yogurt, packaged in PS cups, were similarly analyzed and the leaching of styrene monomer from PS containers by some food simulants was also determined. Blood level studies with rats, dosed with styrene monomer by various routes, illustrated uptake phenomena that were dependent on the dose and route of administration and were also affected by the vehicle used to convey the styrene monomer.  (+info)

Hepatic and extrahepatic metabolism of 14C-styrene oxide. (5/332)

With 8-(14)C-styrene oxide as substrate, specific glutathione S-transferase and epoxide hydrase activities were determined in subcellular fractions of liver, lungs, kidney, and intestinal mucosa from rabbit, rat, and guinea pig. Liver had the highest enzyme activities in each species. Rat and guinea pig had higher glutathione S-transferase activity in both liver and kidney than rabbit. Rat testis also had appreciable glutathione S-transferase activity. The perinatal development of epoxide hydrase and glutathione S-transferase was followed in liver and several extrahepatic tissues of fetal and neonatal guinea pigs and rabbits. The rates at which enzyme activities reached adult levels in the extrahepatic tissues differed from the liver in both species. Epoxide hydrase and glutathione S-transferases developed at different rates in each organ, demonstrating that the relative importance of these two detoxifying pathways for styrene oxide may shift before and after birth. The effects of pretreating male and female rats with phenobarbital (PB), 1,2,3,4-dibenzanthracene (DBA), pregnenolone-16alpha-carbonitrile (PCN), or 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) on hepatic and extrahepatic epoxide hydrase and glutathione S-transferase activities toward styrene oxide were determined. PB increased both enzyme activities in liver of both sexes. PCN induced only glutathione S-transferase activity in female liver. Extrahepatic epoxide hydrase and glutathione S-transferase activities were unaffected except that TCDD doubled female renal epoxide hydrase activity and PB increased intestinal epoxide hydrase activity in both sexes. Styrene oxide biotransformation was studied in isolated, perfused rat liver and rabbit lung preparations. Conjugation with glutathione was a major metabolic pathway although significant amounts of diol were also formed in each instance. In rat liver, 27-40% of the administered styrene oxide was excreted via the bile mainly as S-(1-phenyl-2-hydroxyethyl)glutathione.  (+info)

Clinical studies of styrene workers: initial findings. (6/332)

Styrene monomer is a high volume chemical used chiefly in production of polystyrene. A clinical survey of 493 production workers was undertaken at the oldest and largest monomer production, polymerization, and extrusion facility in the U.S. Relative exposure durations and levels were obtained from occupational histories. Significant differences between the high and low exposure groups were found with regard to history of acute prenarcotic symptoms, acute lower respiratory symptoms, prevalence of FEV 1/FV less than 75 per cent, and elevated GCTP. Other liver function tests, chest x-ray, FVC less than 80 per cent, and hematological parameters showed no distinct pattern. A concomitant mortality study has been mounted and is in progress.  (+info)

Hofmeister effects of anions on the kinetics of partial reactions of the Na+,K+-ATPase. (7/332)

The effects of lyotropic anions, particularly perchlorate, on the kinetics of partial reactions of the Na+,K+-ATPase from pig kidney were investigated by two different kinetic techniques: stopped flow in combination with the fluorescent label RH421 and a stationary electrical relaxation technique. It was found that 130 mM NaClO4 caused an increase in the Kd values of both the high- and low-affinity ATP-binding sites, from values of 7.0 (+/- 0.6) microM and 143 (+/- 17) microM in 130 mM NaCl solution to values of 42 (+/- 3) microM and 660 (+/- 100) microM in 130 mM NaClO4 (pH 7.4, 24 degrees C). The half-saturating concentration of the Na+-binding sites on the E1 conformation was found to decrease from 8-10 mM in NaCl to 2.5-3.5 mM in NaClO4 solution. The rate of equilibration of the reaction, E1P(Na+)3 left arrow over right arrow E2P + 3Na+, decreased from 393 (+/- 51) s-1 in NaCl solution to 114 (+/- 15) s-1 in NaClO4. This decrease is attributed predominantly to an inhibition of the E1P(Na+)3 --> E2P(Na+)3 transition. The effects can be explained in terms of electrostatic interactions due to perchlorate binding within the membrane and/or protein matrix of the Na+,K+-ATPase membrane fragments and alteration of the local electric field strength experienced by the protein. The kinetic results obtained support the conclusion that the conformational transition E1P(Na+)3 --> E2P(Na+)3 is a major charge translocating step of the pump cycle.  (+info)

Effect of gramicidin A on the dipole potential of phospholipid membranes. (8/332)

The effect of channel-forming peptide gramicidin A on the dipole potential of phospholipid monolayers and bilayers has been studied. Surface pressure and surface potential isotherms of monolayers have been measured with a Langmuir trough equipped with a Wilhelmy balance and a surface potential meter (Kelvin probe). Gramicidin has been shown to shift pressure-area isotherms of phospholipids and to reduce their monolayer surface potentials. Both effects increase with the increase in gramicidin concentration and depend on the kind of phosphatidylcholine used. Application of the dual-wavelength ratiometric fluorescence method using the potential-sensitive dye RH421 has revealed that the addition of gramicidin A to dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine liposomes leads to a decrease in the fluorescence ratio of RH421. This is similar to the effect of phloretin, which is known to decrease the dipole potential. The comparison of the concentration dependences of the fluorescence ratio for gramicidin and phloretin shows that gramicidin is as potent as phloretin in modifying the membrane dipole potential.  (+info)
