In this study, we aimed to examine dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and identify the factors associated with thiol oxidation. Thirty-eight subjects (18 male, 20 female) diagnosed with T1DM and 38 (17 male, 21 female) healthy volunteers without any known diseases were included in the study. Thiol/disulfide homeostasis concentrations were measured by a newly developed method (Erel & Neselioglu) in this study. After native thiol, total thiol and disulfide levels were determined; measures such as disulfide/native thiol, disulfide/total thiol, and native thiol/total thiol were calculated. In T1DM patients, compared to the control group, disulfide (p = 0.024), disulfide/native thiol (p < 0.001), and disulfide/total thiol (p < 0.001) were determined higher, while native thiol (p = 0.004) and total thiol (p < 0.001) levels were much lower. In the patient group, a positive correlation was determined between c-reactive protein (r = 325, p = 0.007; r = 316, p = 0.010, ...
Thiols are the organic compounds that contain a sulphydryl group. Among all the antioxidants that are available in the body, thiols constitute the major portion of the total body antioxidants and they play a significant role in defense against reactive oxygen species. Total thiols composed of both intracellular and extracellular thiols either in the free form as oxidized or reduced glutathione, or thiols bound to proteins. Among the thiols that are bound to proteins, albumin makes the major portion of the protein bound thiols, which binds to sufhydryl group at its cysteine-34 portion. Apart from their role in defense against free radicals, thiols share significant role in detoxification, signal transduction, apoptosis and various other functions at molecular level. The thiol status in the body can be assessed easily by determining the serum levels of thiols. Decreased levels of thiols has been noted in various medical disorders including chronic renal failure and other disorders related to ...

Free radicals contribute to Type 1 diabetes (T1D) autoimmune responses. We recently demonstrated that superoxide-deficient CD4 T cells exhibited increased effector responses and diabetogenicity, but the redox-dependent mechanism(s) mediating T cell activation were unclear. We hypothesized that during T1D progression, CD4 T cells with a reduced cell surface state would exhibit a concomitant increase in pro-inflammatory cytokine and chemokine responses. To test this, alexa fluor 647-conjugated maleimide (ALM)-labeling of cell surface reduced thiols on diabetogenic mouse and human CD4 T cells was performed. We observed an increase in ALM percentage and gMFI from peripheral Non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse CD4 T cells during progression to overt diabetes. Cognate autoantigen stimulation elicited a 2- and 20-fold increase in CD4 ALM T cell percentage and gMFI, respectively. In addition to serving as a T cell activation marker, ALM gMFI of reduced CD4 T cell surface thiols was enhanced (1.2-fold) with ...
Acute exposure of a nonsmoking subject to passive smoking resulted in deterioration of serum antioxidant defense, accelerated lipid peroxidation, and accumulation of LDL cholesterol in cultured human macrophages. These events were observed even after a very short period (30 minutes) of passive smoking. Indeed, it has previously been suggested that the cardiovascular system is extremely sensitive to the chemicals in environmental tobacco smoke.1 Furthermore, the oxidative stress induced by SHS may have a more prominent effect on a nonsmoking subject than on an active smoker whose cardiovascular system has adapted to CS.1 Oxidative stress induced by acute passive smoking significantly decreased plasma ascorbic acid and caused a minor, nonsignificant decrease in protein sulfhydryl groups, reflecting increased use of these antioxidants. This is in line with previous studies demonstrating that long-term exposure to SHS decreases plasma ascorbic acid in both active and passive smokers.7 12 ...
Bacteria are exposed to oxidative stress as an unavoidable consequence of their aerobic lifestyle. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are generated in the stepwise one-electron reduction of molecular oxygen during the respiration. Pathogens encounter ROS during the oxidative burst of macrophages as part of the host immune defense. Besides ROS, bacteria also have to cope with reactive chlorine, electrophilic and nitrogen species (RCS, RES, RNS). To cope with these reactive species, bacteria have evolved different defense and repair mechanisms. To maintain the reduced state of the cytoplasm, they utilize low molecular weight (LMW) thiols. LMW thiols are small thiol-containing compounds that can undergo post-translational thiolmodifications with protein thiols, termed as S-thiolations. S-thiolations function as major redox regulatory and thiol-protection mechanism under oxidative stress conditions. In eukaryotes and Gram-negative bacteria, the tripeptide glutathione (GSH) functions as major LMW thiol, which is
The total thiols in a medium containing authentic biological sample (articular cartilage) has been determined electrochemically. The detection strategy utilises the electrochemical adaptation of the Ellmans reaction process via the electrochemically initiated reaction of thiols with diethyl-p-phenylenediamine. The strategy has been examined over a biologically significant pH range and the behaviour observed rationalised. The detection of thiols within the biological sample is shown to proceed with micromolar levels of thiol determined within the sample.

Glutathione (GSH)is the most abundant low molecular weight thiol and form of storage of SH-. Animal and human studies have demonstrated that adequate protein nutrition is crucial for the maintenance of GSH homeostasis [48]. Elevated levels of GSH inhibit prostaglandin production by a direct interaction with COX enzymes, of potential significance in the progression of inflammatory or degenerative states [36]. It is of particular interest, as discussed earlier that prostagandins synthesized from PUFA and most of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs share this same locus of involvement. It is also relevant that some recent studies have found that on occasions the pain reduction in OA associated with the administration of chondroitin sulfate, a source of sulfur, was found to be equivalent to that provided by NSAID. The reasons for such unpredictable results, we suspect could be associated with differences in levels of protein in the diet, the better responders consuming higher amounts of SAA. ...

The low molecular weight thiol (-SH) content of a human prostate carcinoma cell line (LNCap), important to the cellular resistance to drugs and irradiation, was investigated using three forms of thiol assay each utilizing different chemistries. The composition of the mixture was examined by derivatization of the thiols with a three-fold excess of the Ellman reagent to give mixed aromatic disulfides. The components were isolated by chromatography on C18 reverse phase silica gel followed by DE52 anion exchange separation, and then analyzed by capillary electrophoresis against prepared standards. The glutathione adduct (GSSE) and an unknown disulfide (RSSE) were the major components isolated on DE52 together with two minor ones. However, from the absorbance at 325 nm, it was found that the GSSE isolated (1.5 ± 0.2 femtomoles/cell) could only account for 28.5 ± 4.3% of the total ASF thiols. It appeared that the bulk of the thiol material had not formed a stable mixed disulfide with Ellmans reagent, and
This reaction is rapid and stoichiometric, with the addition of one mole of thiol releasing one mole of TNB. The TNB2− is quantified in a spectrophotometer by measuring the absorbance of visible light at 412 nm, using an extinction coefficient of 14,150 M−1 cm−1 for dilute buffer solutions,[3][4] and a coefficient of 13,700 M−1 cm−1 for high salt concentrations, such as 6 M guanidinium hydrochloride or 8 M urea.[4] Unfortunately the extinction coefficient for dilute solutions was underestimated in the original 1959 publication, as 13,600 M−1 cm−1, and as noted in a recent article, this mistake has persisted in the literature.[5] Commercial DTNB may not be completely pure, so may require recrystallization to obtain completely accurate and reproducible results.[4]. Ellmans reagent can be used for measuring low-molecular mass thiols such as glutathione in both pure solutions and biological samples, such as blood.[6] It can also measure the number of thiol groups on ...

Attempts to denature the surrounding protein scaffold, i. e. to isolate the photoadduct consisting of FMN and methyl mercaptan failed. The adduct is apparently very unstable. For this reason, it was impossible to identify the adduct via mass spectrometry. However the structure of the adduct could be confirmed by CD spectroscopy. Irradiation of free FMN in aqueous solution in the presence of methyl mercaptan did not yield the corresponding free adduct of FMN and methyl mercaptan, but the fully reduced hydroquinone form of FMN. Therefore, the protein scaffold carries out two different functions: It guides the photoreaction between FMN and methyl mercaptan to adduct formation and it stabilizes the photoadduct after its formation ...
Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: In tomato, impaired reductive activation of the stromal bisphosphatases appears to be the dominating factor limiting carbon assimilation following chilling in the light. The illumination-dependent activation of at least seven different chloroplast enzymes involves the reversible thiol/disulfide exchange between thioredoxin and the photosynthetic enzyme. The thermodynamics of the thiol/disulfide exchange between thioredoxin and the regulatory sulfhydryl groups of the various light-regulated chloroplast enzymes explains the differential responses among the various thioredoxin-regulated enzymes to the effects of chilling in the light (Hutchison et al. 2000). In the case of dark chilling, an intriguing effect of low temperature on the circadian regulation of transcription indicates that the low-temperature induced inhibition of photosynthesis in tomato may result from the loss of coordination in the expression of critical enzymes controlling ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Investigations into the loss of glutathione from lenses in organ culture. AU - Qin, Chuan. AU - Tumminia, Santa J.. AU - Russell, Paul. AU - Rao, P. Vasantha. AU - Zigler, J. Samuel. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - Purpose. To investigate possible causes and implications of the decrease in glutathione concentration in rat lenses during organ culture. Methods. Freshly excised lenses were incubated in modified TC-199 medium. Ellmans Reagent or the GSH-400 assay were used to assay glutathione levels in lenses cultured for different times and under a variety of altered culture conditions. Results. In lenses from young rats the glutathione decrease was not ameliorated by reduction of oxygen tension in the incubator, nor by supplementation of the culture medium with various antioxidants or sulfhydryl compounds, nor with the amino acid precursors of glutathione. Addition of 2-mercaptoethanol stimulated cysteine transport into the lens but had only a modest effect in maintaining the level of ...
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 ...
In this study we examined whether metabolic stress induced by hypercholesterolemia alone or hyperlipidemia plus hyperglycemia accelerates atherosclerosis and renal injury by promoting thiol oxidative stress in macrophages and increasing the recruitment of macrophages to sites of tissue injury. We found that with each additional level of metabolic stress, macrophage accumulation increased in both atherosclerotic lesions and in kidneys of LDL-R−/− mice. Analysis of the macrophage glutathione reduction potential (Eh) revealed that metabolic stress promotes intracellular thiol oxidation and that oxidation of the macrophage glutathione reduction state correlates with both accelerated macrophage recruitment and increased lesion severity. Macrophage recruitment into MCP-1-loaded Matrigel plugs implanted in these mice was also accelerated with each additional level of metabolic stress, suggesting that increased cellular thiol oxidation induced by metabolic stress amplifies macrophage responses to ...
In order to study the oxidative stress-induced change in intracellular concentration of Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, ([Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,]i) and Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,-induced oxidative stress, effects of hydrogen peroxide and ionomycin, a calcium ionophore, on rat cerebellar neurons were examined using a flow cytometer and fluorescent dyes: fluo-3 for monitoring [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,]i; 2, 7-dichlorofluorescin, for reactive oxygen species; and 5-chloromethylfiuorescein, for cellular nonprotein thiols. Oxidative stress induced by hydrogen peroxide dose-dependently increased [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,]i and decreased the content of nonprotein thiols. Ionomycin increased oxidative metabolism and decreased the content of nonprotein thiols. Results suggest that oxidative stress induces an increase in [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,]j While an increase in [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,]i increases oxidative stress in neurons.. ...
Although the biophysical properties of T-channels were first described in sensory neurons (Carbone and Lux, 1984), their function in nociception has only recently been established (Todorovic et al., 2001a; Bourinet et al., 2005; Choi et al., 2007). Indeed, the molecular mechanisms that regulate the function of these channels in pain processing still are not well understood. The major finding of this study is that LA inhibits native and recombinant T-currents by oxidizing specific thiol residues on the extracellular face of the channel. Inhibition of CaV3.2 T-channels and the ensuing decrease in cellular excitability in nociceptive DRG cells may contribute to the documented analgesic properties of LA in vivo. This notion is strongly supported by the finding that local intraplantar injection of LA potently diminished responses to noxious thermal and mechanical stimuli in wild-type mice, but was completely ineffective in CaV3.2 knock-out mice. Importantly, we identified a novel regulatory site on ...

This study aimed to evaluate the gastroprotective mechanism of action of the essential oil of Croton cajucara Benth. (Euphorbiaceae) stem bark in ethanol-induced gastric ulcers and its in vitro anti-Helicobacter pylori activity. The involvement of heat-shock protein-70, vasoactive intestinal peptide, glutathione, nitric oxide, and nonprotein sulfhydryl compounds in the gastroprotective effect was determined in male Wistar rats. The minimum inhibitory concentration against H. pylori was determined in vitro. The results were analyzed by analysis of variance followed by the Dunnett test, and a P value less than 0.05 was considered to represent a statistically significant difference. C. cajucara decreased ethanol-induced ulcer area in 100% of ulcers and decreased the histologic lesions. In the C. cajucara group, the area marked by heat-shock protein-70 was significantly higher than the area in the control group; this finding was not seen for vasoactive intestinal peptide. C. cajucara could not ...
Recent studies have demonstrated that induction of apoptosis is related to the cell growth inhibition potential of Salvia Miltiorrhiza (SM), a traditional herbal medicine. In the present study, we further explore the mechanistic pathway involved in SM-induced apoptosis in human hepatoma HepG2 cells. A rapid decline of intracellular glutathione (GSH) and protein thiol content was found in SM-treated cells. Moreover, SM exposure resulted in mitochondrial dysfunction as demonstrated by: (i) the onset of mitochondrial permeability transition (MPT); (ii) the disruption of mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP); and (iii) the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria into the cytosol. Subsequently, elevated level of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) was observed prior to the onset of DNA fragmentation. However, no caspase-3 cleavage was observed throughout the whole period of SM treatment, while a caspase-3-independent poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage was noted at the late stage ...
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced mainly by mitochondria when electrons leak from a highly reduced respiratory chain (Andreyev et al., 2005). Apart from causing oxidative damage to several cellular constituents, ROS also function as signal molecules (Moran et al., 2001; Damdimopoulos et al., 2002).. Protein sulfhydryl groups are crucial to redox regulation as they can be reversibly oxidized, forming inter- or intra-molecular disulfide bridges (Ghezzi, 2005). The plant AOX is a dimer covalently linked by a disulfide bridge that has to be reduced and form a thiohemiacetal with pyruvate in order to produce the active conformation (Rhoads et al., 1998; Vanlerberghe et al., 1998). Thus, the redox state regulates the partitioning of electron flux between AOX and cytochrome oxidase in plant mitochondria (Berthold et al., 2000). The lugworm AOX may be regulated in a similar way, as the detoxifying sulfide oxidation pathway was active exclusively under reducing conditions. However, sulfide but ...
Thiolates, not thiols, attack disulfide bonds. Hence, thiol-disulfide exchange is inhibited at low pH (typically, below 8) where the protonated thiol form is favored relative to the deprotonated thiolate form. (The pKa of a typical thiol group is roughly 8.3, but can vary due to its environment.) Thiol-disulfide exchange is the principal reaction by which disulfide bonds are formed and rearranged in a protein. The rearrangement of disulfide bonds within a protein generally occurs via intra-protein thiol-disulfide exchange reactions; a thiolate group of a cysteine residue attacks one of the proteins own disulfide bonds. This process of disulfide rearrangement (known as disulfide shuffling) does not change the number of disulfide bonds within a protein, merely their location (i.e., which cysteines are bonded). Disulfide reshuffling is generally much faster than oxidation/reduction reactions, which change the number of disulfide bonds within a protein. The oxidation and reduction of protein ...
Objectives: Hypogonadism is associated with a higher risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, but the mechanisms underlying this association are not yet fully understood. Increased oxidative stress has been associated with development of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. We aimed to determine serum PON1 activities, an established lipid antioxidant, MDA levels which are end products of lipid peroxidation induced by ROS and thiol groups as an antioxidant for evaluating oxidative stress in patients with hypogonadism before and after replacement therapy.. Design and methods: A total of 18 male patients with untreated idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (mean age: 27.4±7.3 years) and age, sex, and weight matched eugonadal healthy subjects (mean age: 32.6±7.2 years) were enrolled in the study as a control group. Serum PON1 activity, MDA and thiol levels were measured according to an enzymatic spectrophotometric method.. Results: Serum MDA and thiol levels were higher and ...
Three tetrazolium salts are used as histochemical indicators of dehydrogenase activity in the skin of sheep and other mammals. Of these compounds 2-(p-iodophenyl)-3-(p-nitrophenyl)-5-phenyl-tetrazolium chloride (INT) is shown to be the most satisfactory. It enables various histological structures of the wool follicle to be conveniently demonstrated.. In the presence of appropriate substrates and DPN and ATP, the intracellular deposition of the granular formazan in frozen sections has revealed the distribution of succinic, α-glycerophosphoric, lactic, and malic dehydrogenases, and regions where some phosphorylated carbohydrate intermediates promote reduction. Metabolic activity in the Malpighian layers and in the undifferentiated epidermal cells of the hair matrix reduces INT enzymatically up to the pre-keratinous zone. Here the protein-bound sulphydryl groups reduce INT and produce intense red staining which is easily distinguished from the granular enzymic staining.. The distribution of ...

Silk glands of several spiders and caterpillars contain powerful cytoplasmic phosphatase activity localized along the inner border of the cells next to the gland lumen. Phosphatase activity is also high in the nuclei, particularly the nucleoli. Reservoir regions which secrete no silk lack the phosphatase border.. Although it is most easily demonstrated histochemically at pH 9, phosphatase activity in sections or homogenates of the glands is high over a considerable range of pH, from at least pH 5.5 to pH 9.8. It appears to be inhibited both by sulphydryl inactivators and by an abundance of sulphydryl groups. In view of the latter point, it is interesting to note that no sulphydryl groups can be detected in the phosphatase border zone (in the more insoluble constituents which remain informalin-fixed frozen sections), although the main bulk of th e cytoplasm is rich in sulphydryl groups.. Except in the non-secretory reservoir regions, silk glands of all the species examined are rich in cytoplasmic ...

We show that relatively mild shifts in the intracellular thiol/disulfide redox state toward more oxidative conditions induce a rundown of ACh-evoked currents. Once the ACh-evoked currents run down, they do not recover for at least 1 h; it is as if the receptors become trapped in a long-lasting inactivated state. This ROS-induced rundown of ACh-evoked currents is specific to neuronal nAChRs, because elevating ROS had no detectable effect on muscle nAChRs.. In previous work (De Koninck and Cooper, 1995), we measured gene expression of sympathetic neurons developing in culture. We found that these neurons express five nicotinic receptor transcripts: mRNA for α3 and β4 are the most abundant and increase over the first week in culture; mRNA for β2 and α5 are severalfold lower and remain constant, whereas mRNA for α7 is initially high but falls rapidly within 1-2 d in culture and remains low. Although there are no ...

AU - Franz, James A.. AU - Birnbaum, Jerome C.. AU - Kolwaite, Douglas S.. AU - Linehan, John C.. AU - Camaioni, Donald M.. AU - Dupuis, Michel. PY - 2004/6/2. Y1 - 2004/6/2. N2 - This paper provides evidence from kinetic experiments and electronic structure calculations of a significantly reduced S-H bond strength in the Mo(μ-SH)Mo function in the homogeneous catalyst model, CpMo(μ-S) 2(μ-SH)2MoCp (1, Cp = η 5-cyclopentadienyl). The reactivity of 1 was explored by determination of a rate expression for hydrogen atom abstraction by benzyl radical from 1 (log(kabs/M-1 s-1) = (9.07 ± 0.38) - (3.62 ± 0.58)/θ) for comparison with expressions for CH3(CH2)7SH, log(kabs/M -1 s-1) = (7.88 ± 0.35) - (4.64 ± 0.54)/θ, and for 2-mercaptonaphthalene, log(kabs/M -1 s-1) = (8.21 ± 0.17) - (4.24 ± 0.26)/θ (θ = 2.303RT ...
The final compounds, in this case the DNICs, appeared after only a second. They form very rapidly," Truzzi explained. "We then started to study how these molecules bind and managed to determine the mechanisms of formation. To our surprise, we found that thiyl radicals were also produced along with DNICs.". Radicals often react with each other, and thiyl radicals naturally react with nitric oxide. This reaction produced nitroso thiols. "Nitroso thiols may be involved in cell signaling," he said. "In addition, high levels of nitroso thiols have been found to be correlated with the development of neurodegenerative diseases and cancer." New studies will be performed with other thiols to see if the effect recurs and to confirm the discovery.. "REDOXOME focuses on metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, but it is important to understand the mechanistic details in order to be able to intervene in the processes of interest, and that is our main research aim in this instance," Augusto said.. ###.

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether PN possesses any curative role against NIM-induced oxidative stress. We observed that NIM administration at a dose of 10 mg/kg/twice daily for one week significantly reduced the levels of two antioxidant enzymes, SOD and CAT and the non-protein thiol, GSH accompanied by the enhance-ment of lipid peroxidation. Administration of PN (100 mg/kg body weight) to the experimental animals, post to NIM treatment, altered the levels of antioxidant enzymes and GSH near to those present in normal liver along with significant reduction of lipid peroxidation. Histological studies support this result. Administration of BSA had no effect on this oxidative insult although similar hepatoprotective results were obtained when the animals were treated with the antioxidant, vitamin E, post to NIM administration.. Liver is the first organ to metabolize all foreign compounds and hence its injury can be induced by the exposure of various toxicants, and also by a number of ...

In the present study, we report our recently developed new approach to inducing antigen-specific immune response. We use two nucleophilic substitution click chemistry processes to successfully couple protein antigens or peptides to mouse spleen cells or T cells by a heterobifunctional crosslinker, succinimidyl-4-(N-maleimidomethyl cyclohexane)-1-carboxylate (SMCC) or sulfo-SMCC. SMCC and its water-soluble analog sulfo-SMCC contain N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) ester and maleimide groups, which allow stable covalent conjugation of amine- and sulfhydryl-containing molecules in trans. Protein coupling to cells relies on the free sulfhydryls (thiols) on cell surfaces and the free amines on protein antigens. Although the amount of protein coupled to cells is limited due to the limited number of cell surface thiols, the injection of spleen cells coupled with antigenic proteins, such as keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) or ovalbumin (OVA), induces a potent antigen-specific immune response in vivo, which is even

Glutathione (L-γ-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine; GSH) in cancer cells is particularly relevant in the regulation of carcinogenic mechanisms; sensitivity against cytotoxic drugs, ionizing radiations, and some cytokines; DNA synthesis; and cell proliferation and death. The intracellular thiol redox state (controlled by GSH) is one of the endogenous effectors involved in regulating the mitochondrial permeability transition pore complex and, in consequence, thiol oxidation can be a causal factor in the mitochondrion-based mechanism that leads to cell death. Nevertheless GSH depletion is a common feature not only of apoptosis but also of other types of cell death. Indeed rates of GSH synthesis and fluxes regulate its levels in cellular compartments, and potentially influence switches among different mechanisms of death. How changes in gene expression, post-translational modifications of proteins, and signaling cascades are implicated will be discussed. Furthermore, this review will finally analyze whether GSH
Johanna Budwig (30 September 1908 - 19 May 2003) was a German biochemist and author. Budwig was a pharmacist and held doctorate degrees in physics and chemistry. Based on her research on fatty acids she developed a diet that she believed was useful in the treatment of cancer. There is no evidence that this or other "anti-cancer" diet is effective. While working as a researcher at the German Federal Health Office she noted many cancer drugs being evaluated in the 1950s contained sulphydryl groups. Budwig believed sulphydryl compounds were important to cellular metabolism and cellular respiration. Budwig researched the theory that a low oxygen environment would develop in the absence of sulphydryl groups and/or fatty acid partners that would encourage the proliferation of cancerous cells. With H.P. Kaufmann she developed paper chromatography techniques to identify and quantify fatty acids. Budwig used these techniques to compare the fatty acid profiles of sick and healthy individuals. This made ...

Pyruvate kinase (PK), an important glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the final step of glycolysis through an irreversible mechanism to produce energy for the cell, contains nine cysteines, some of which are highly reactive and critical for function. This research sought to develop a protocol to measure quantitatively the functionality of PK under different experimental conditions. Using a three stage, consistent procedure, it was possible to analyze the effects of thiol modification by Ellmans Reagent (DTNB) and oxidation by hypochlorous acid (HOCl) on PK activity. Results showed that both DTNB and HOCl inhibited activity at high concentrations, which illustrates that some cysteines are essential for PK to catalyze its reaction. Furthermore, analysis of cysteine labeling with 5-iodoacetamidofluorescein on SDS-PAGE demonstrates that not all cysteines must be modified to see inhibitory effects. Additionally, incubation studies with ATP and fructose-1,6-bisphosphate, known regulators with different binding
The conjunctival cells are collected by impression cytology. Those cells are stained with 100 mM of monochlorobimane (MCB, M-1381, Molecular Probes, Eugene, OR) and propidium iodide (PI). Fluorescent intensity, reflecting the amount of icGSH, was inspected under a confocal laser scan microscope. To detect the GSH levels we used a fluorescent MCB probe with excitation and emission wavelengths of 405 nm and 410-480 nm, respectively. The cell-permeating MCB probe is non-fluorescent but forms a fluorescent adduct with GSH in a reaction catalyzed by glutathione-S-transferase ...
Bacterial growth and pathogenicity depend on the correct formation of disulfide bonds, a process controlled by the Dsb system in the periplasm of Gram-negative bacteria. Proteins with a thioredoxin fold play a central role in this process. A general feature of thiol-disulfide exchange reactions is the need to avoid a long lived product complex between protein partners. We use a multidisciplinary approach, involving NMR, x-ray crystallography, surface plasmon resonance, mutagenesis, and in vivo experiments, to investigate the interaction between the two soluble domains of the transmembrane reductant conductor DsbD. Our results show oxidation state-dependent affinities between these two domains. These observations have implications for the interactions of the ubiquitous thioredoxin-like proteins with their substrates, provide insight into the key role played by a unique redox partner with an immunoglobulin fold, and are of general importance for oxidative protein-folding pathways in all organisms.

Although previous studies have addressed the consequences of treating cells (5) or nucleosides (7) with TCBQ, the rates of physiologically relevant reactions between TCBQ and nucleophiles have not been examined. TCBQ reacts with thiols with rate constants ,1.4 × 106-1.3 × 107 M−1⋅s−1 at pH 7. The apparent decrease in reactivity going from cysteine to glutathione to β-ME correlates with their pKas (8.2, 9.2, and 9.6, respectively) (Fig. S1) and is consistent with the reactive moiety being the thiolate. Given these pKa values, 6%, 0.6%, and 0.3% of the thiols will be deprotonated at pH 7 for cysteine, glutathione, and β-ME, respectively. Thus, the rate constant for reaction between TCBQ and thiolates is ,108 M−1⋅s−1 , essentially the diffusion-controlled limit. It is important to note that each molecule of TCBQ can react with multiple thiols, leading to depletion of up to four molecules of glutathione per TCBQ (23). Further, reaction of TCBQ with multiple thiols can lead to ...

a-Dicarbonyl compounds (a-DCs), such as glyoxal, methylglyoxal and 2,3-butanedione, are highly reactive substances occurring in thermally treated and fermented foods, that may react with amino and sulphydryl groups of side chains of proteins to form Maillard reaction end products, inducing a negative impact on the digestibility and on nutritional value of protein. In recent years the role of food derived a-DCs in gastroduodenal tract is under investigation to understand whether excess consumption of such dietary compounds might be a risk for human health ...
Here, we show that the naphthoquinone napabucasin can be bioactivated by the cellular reductases NQO1 and, to a lesser extent, POR, resulting in the production of ROS and disruption of the cellular redox balance, resulting in DNA damage-induced cell death. Although traditionally ROS are considered to be toxic molecules causing indiscriminate damage to proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids, it is increasingly recognized that they also play a significant role as secondary messengers in cellular signaling (37). A number of transcription factors contain redox-sensitive cysteine residues at their DNA binding sites, including NF-κB, HIF-1, and p53. In addition, ROS can either inhibit or activate protein function through altering their phosphorylation status via thiol oxidation of either tyrosine phosphatases or kinases (1, 38, 39). Similar to previous reports (21-23), we observed a decrease in STAT3 phosphorylation upon treatment with napabucasin in pancreatic and breast cancer cells. However, the ...
