Human flavin-containing monooxygenase 3 (FMO3) is subject to modulation by tricyclic antidepressants and other agents. Imipramine activates FMO3-catalyzed metabolism of methimazole at all substrate concentrations tested. This distinguishes FMO3 from rabbit FMO1 and FMO2, which are activated at high substrate concentration and inhibited at low substrate concentration, and pig FMO1, which is inhibited at all substrate concentrations. The response of FMO3 is also unique in that chlorpromazine is markedly more effective as a modulator than is imipramine. n-Octylamine,MgCl2, and HgCl2 all inhibit FMO3, the frst two in a biphasic manner. Substitution of lysine for threonine at position 428 significantly alters the response of FMO3 to modulators without changing the kinetic parameters for the metabolism of the substrate. Activation by imipramine and chlorpromazine is reduced or abolished and inhibition, most obvious at low substrate concentrations, is observed. This is consistent with elimination of self-activation in the metabolism of imipramine. The mutation at 428 also eliminates the biphasic nature of the inhibition by n-octylamine and MgCl2, but does not alter the effect of HgCl2. Our findings show that the activity of FMO3 can be modulated by large drug molecules as well as short-chain amines and metal ions. This modulation can be markedly altered by changing a single amino acid in the enzyme. (C) 1998 Academic Press.

The effect of cysteine-43 mutation on thermostability and kinetic properties of citrate synthase from Thermoplasma acidophilum
Kocabıyık, Semra; Russel, RJM; Danson, MJ; Hough, DW (Elsevier BV, 1996-07-05)
In this study, we have substituted serine-43 by cysteine in the recombinant citrate synthase from a moderately thermophilic Archaeon Thermoplasma acidophilum, for site-specific attachment of labels and have investigated the effects of this mutation on the biochemical properties and thermal stability of the enzyme. Both wild-type and the mutant enzymes were purified to homogenity using affinity chromatography on Matrex Gel Red A. The mutant Thermoplasma citrate synthase is very similar to wild-type citrate s...
Amifostine, a radioprotectant agent, protects rat brain tissue lipids against ionizing radiation induced damage: An FTIR microspectroscopic imaging study
Cakmak, Gulgun; Miller, Lisa M.; Zorlu, Faruk; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2012-04-15)
Amifostine is the only approved radioprotective agent by FDA for reducing the damaging effects of radiation on healthy tissues. In this study, the protective effect of amifostine against the damaging effects of ionizing radiation on the white matter (WM) and grey matter (GM) regions of the rat brain were investigated at molecular level. Sprague-Dawley rats, which were administered amifostine or not, were whole-body irradiated at a single dose of 800 cGy, decapitated after 24 h and the brain tissues of these...
Regulation of CpG-induced immune activation by suppressive oligodeoxynucleotides.
Klinman, DM; Zeuner, R; Yamada, H; Gürsel, Mayda; Currie, D; Gursel, I (Wiley, 2003-12-01)
Bacterial DNA and synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) containing unmethylated "CpG motifs" stimulate an innate immune response characterized by the production of cytokines, chemokines, and polyreactive Igs that promote host survival following infectious challenge. Yet CpG-driven immune activation can have deleterious consequences, such as increasing the host's susceptibility to autoimmune disease. The immunomodulatory activity of CpG DNA can be blocked by DNA containing "suppressive" motifs. This work exp...
Drug repositioning as an effective therapy for protease-activated receptor 2 inhibition
Saqib, Uzma; Savai, Rajkumar; Liu, DongFang; Banerjee, Sreeparna; Baig, Mirza S. (Wiley, 2019-02-01)
Proteinase-activated receptor 2 (PAR-2) is a G protein-coupled receptor activated by both trypsin and a specific agonist peptide, SLIGKV-NH2. It has been linked to various pathologies, including pain and inflammation. Several peptide and peptidomimetic agonizts for PAR-2 have been developed exhibiting high potency and efficacy. However, the number of PAR-2 antagonists is smaller. We screened the Food and Drug Administration library of approved compounds to retrieve novel antagonists for repositioning in the...
Low dose simvastatin induces compositional, structural and dynamic changes in rat skeletal extensor digitorum longus muscle tissue
Ozek Simsek, Nihal; Sara, Yildirim; Onur, Rustu; Severcan, Feride (Portland Press Ltd., 2009-10-6)
<jats:p>Statins are commonly used drugs in the treatment of hypercholesterolaemia. There are many adverse effects of statins on skeletal muscle, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. In the present study, the effects of low dose (20 mg/kg) simvastatin, a lipophilic statin, on rat EDL muscle (extensor digitorum longus muscle) were investigated at the molecular level using FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared) spectroscopy. FTIR spectroscopy allows us rapid and sensitive determination of functional groups...
