N,N'-bis[1-(substitutedphenyl)-3-(morpholine-4-yl) propylidene] hydrazine dihydrochlorides, N1-N11 were designed and synthesized as cytotoxic agents. These compounds were synthesized by the reaction of 2 moles of 1-( substitutedphenyl)-3-(morpholine-4-yl)-1-propanone hydrochlorides with 1 mole of hydrazine hydrate. The compounds reported here are new, except N1 and N4. The cytotoxicity of the compounds was tested against human hepatoma (Huh7) and breast cancer (T47D) cell lines. 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) was used as a reference compound. It was found that N3, which has 4-methoxy substituent on phenyl ring, was the most cytotoxic compound towards both cell lines. Its cytotoxicity was 5.6 times higher than 5-FU. Representative compounds N2 at 144, 264 and 424 mu M and N3 at 401 mu M concentrations significantly inhibited mitochondrial respiration in a dose dependent manner in liver homogenates. This suggests that the inhibition of mitochondrial respiration may be one of the contributing mechanisms to the cytotoxicity of the compounds. N3 may serve as a candidate compound for further studies.

Crosslinking of Trimethylene Carbonate and D,L-Lactide (Co-) Polymers by Gamma Irradiation in the Presence of Pentaerythritol Triacrylate
Bat, Erhan; Feijen, Jan; Grijpma, Dirk W. (Wiley, 2011-07-07)
High-molecular-weight (co) polymers of trimethylene carbonate and D, L-lactide are efficiently crosslinked using PETA during gamma irradiation. Form-stable networks with gel contents of 86 +/- 5 to 96 +/- 1 are obtained from non-crystalline (co) polymers. Glass transition temperatures and elastic moduli of the networks can be varied by adjusting the copolymer composition. The PETA-containing (co) polymer networks are not cytotoxic. Upon incubation in macrophage cultures for 14 d, all (co) polymer films and ...
Celecoxib-loaded liposomes: effect of cholesterol on encapsulation and in vitro release characteristics
DENİZ, Asli; Sade, Asli; Severcan, FERİDE; Keskin, Dilek; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Banerjee, Sreeparna (2010-10-01)
CLX (celecoxib) is a highly hydrophobic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with high plasma protein binding. We describe here the encapsulation of CLX in MLVs (multilamellar vesicles) composed of DSPC (1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine) and variable amounts of cholesterol. The effects of cholesterol content on liposome size, percentage drug loading and in vitro drug release profiles were investigated. Differential scanning calorimetry and FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared) spectroscopy were used t...
Covalent immobilization of alpha-amylase onto poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) and poly(styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) microspheres and the effect of Ca2+ ions on the enzyme activity
Tumturk, H; Aksoy, S; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2000-02-01)
alpha-Amylase (1,4-alpha-D-glucan-glucanohydrolase; EC, Type VI-B from porcine pancreas, extra pure 29 units mg(-1)) was covalently immobilized on poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), p(HEMA), and poly (styrene-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), p(St-HEMA) microspheres, which were activated by using epichlorohydrin (ECH). The properties of the immobilized enzyme were investigated and compared with those of the free enzyme. For the assays carried out at 25 degrees C and pH 6.9, the relative activities were...
Evaluation of the Protective Effects of Quercetin, Rutin, Naringenin, Resveratrol and Trolox Against Idarubicin-Induced DNA Damage
Çelik, Haydar; Arinç, Emel (University of Alberta Libraries, 2010-7-22)
<jats:p>PURPOSE. Idarubicin is a synthetic anthracycline anticancer drug widely used in the treatment of some hematological malignancies. The studies in our laboratory have clearly demonstrated that idarubicin can undergo reductive bioactivation by NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase to free radicals with resulting formation of DNA strand breaks, which can potentially contribute to its genotoxic effects [Çelik, H., Arinç, E., Bioreduction of idarubicin and formation of ROS responsible for DNA cleavage by NADPH-...
Biotransformation of Nonylphenol Diethoxylate in anaerobic digesters: Accumulation of metabolites and their effects on digester performance
Murdoch, Fadime Kara; Sanin, Faika Dilek (Elsevier BV, 2016-05-01)
Nonylphenol(poly)ethoxylates (NPnEOs) have caused great concern over the last few decades due to their lipophilic, hydrophobic, and toxic properties. NPnEOs can be degraded to a certain extent in wastewater treatment plants; however since they accumulate in sludge, understanding their influence on digester performance and their fate become important, especially in regards to land application of biosolids. In this respect, the biotransformation of nonylphenol diethoxylate (NP2EO), an accumulative metabolite ...
