ABSTRACT Recently, we reported an elevated level of glucose-generated carbonyl adducts on cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR2) and sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA2) in hearts of streptozotocin(STZ)-induced diabetic rats. We also showed these adduct impaired RyR2 and SERCA2 activities, and altered evoked Ca(2+) transients. What is less clear is if lipid-derived malondialdehyde (MDA) and 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (4-HNE) also chemically react with and impair RyR2 and SERCA2 activities in diabetes? This study used western blot assays with adduct-specific antibodies and confocal microscopy to assess levels of MDA, 4-HNE, N (ε)-carboxy(methyl)lysine (CML), pentosidine, and pyrraline adducts on RyR2 and SERCA2 and evoked intracellular transient Ca(2+) kinetics in myocytes from control, diabetic, and treated-diabetic rats. MDA and 4-HNE adducts were not detected on RyR2 and SERCA2 from either control or 8 weeks diabetic rats with altered evoked Ca(2+) transients. However, CML, pentosidine, and pyrraline adducts were elevated three- to five-fold (p < 0.05). Treating diabetic rats with pyridoxamine (a scavenger of reactive carbonyl species, RCS) or aminoguanidine (a mixed reactive oxygen species-RCS scavenger) reduced CML, pentosidine, and pyrraline adducts on RyR2 and SERCA2 and blunted SR Ca(2+) cycling changes. Treating diabetic rats with the superoxide dismutase mimetic tempol had no impact on MDA and 4-HNE adducts on RyR2 and SERCA2, and on SR Ca(2+) cycling. From these data we conclude that lipid-derived MDA and 4-HNE adducts are not formed on RyR2 and SERCA2 in this model of diabetes, and are therefore unlikely to be directly contributing to the SR Ca(2+) dysregulation.

    ABSTRACT: Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) is one of the most widely used medicinal plants in folk medicine. It is known to have diuretic, cardio tonic, hypotensive, hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effect. Trigonelline, a major alkaloid component of fenugreek, is reported to be responsible for most of its pharmacological activities. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of trigonelline on blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin and plasma insulin levels in high-fat-fed (HFD)/streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 2 diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced by high-fat diet and low-dose STZ (35 mg/kg.b.wt). Diabetic rats were treated with trigonelline (150 mg/kg b.wt) for 30 days. The toxicological as well as biochemical parameters such as blood glucose, HbA1C, insulin, insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and lipid profile were measured. The activities of serum AST, ALT and ALP were also assayed. Trigonelline supplementation attenuated the elevated levels of glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, AST, ALT and ALP. The insulin level was improved with an improvement in hepatic and muscle glycogen content of insulin resistant diabetic rats. Trigonelline effectively normalized the status of lipid profile. These results showed that trigonelline have potential anti-hyperglycemic and antidyslipidemic effects in HFD/STZ-induced type 2 diabetic rats.

    ABSTRACT: Only very limited methods are available for the synthesis of 5-amino imidazoles. We report in this paper that three-component reaction of acyl chlorides, carbodiimides and α-isocyanoacetates or TosMIC took place smoothly in the presence of Et3N (2.5 equiv.) and a catalytic amount of copper iodide (0.2 equiv.) to afford 1,4-disubstituted 5-acetamidoimidazoles in good yields.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Objective: Effect of peroxynitrite on SERCA1 activity was studied in correlation with enzyme carbonylation. Kinetic parameters and location of peroxynitrite effect on SERCA1 were determined. Methods: Carbonyls were determined by immunoblotting. FITC, NCD-4 and Trp fluorescence were used to indicate changes in cytosolic and transmembrane regions of SERCA1. Results: Peroxynitrite-concentration-dependent decrease of SERCA1 activity was associated with elevation of protein carbonyls. 4-HNE was not involved in carbonylation of SERCA1. Increased FITC fluorescence in the presence of peroxynitrite correlated with the decrease of the enzyme affinity to ATP. Discussion and conclusion: Peroxynitrite-induced SERCA1 carbonylation that was not accompanied with the formation of 4-HNE-SERCA1 adducts is indicative of direct oxidation of SERCA1. As assessed by FITC fluorescence and decreased affinity of the enzyme to ATP, peroxynitrite impairment was found to occur in the cytosolic ATP-binding region of SERCA1.
