ABSTRACT The anticancer drug, leuprolide (LPR) bound to double-stranded fish sperm DNA (dsDNA) which was immobilized onto the surface of an anodically activated pencil graphite electrode (PGE), was employed for designing a sensitive biosensor. The interaction of leuprolide (LPR) with double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) immobilized onto pencil graphite electrode (PGE) have been studied by electrochemical methods. The mechanism of the interaction was investigated and confirmed by differential pulse voltammetry using two different interaction methods; at the PGE surface and in the solution phase. The decrease in the guanine oxidation peak current was used as an indicator for the interaction in acetate buffer at pH 4.80. The response was optimized with respect to accumulation time, potential, drug concentration, and reproducibility for both interaction methods. The linear response was obtained in the range of 0.20-6.00 ppm LPR concentration with a detection limit of 0.06 ppm on DNA modified PGE and between 0.20 and 1.00 ppm concentration range with detection limit of 0.04 ppm for interaction in solution phase method. LPR showed an irreversible oxidation behavior at all investigated pH values on a bare PGE. Differential pulse adsorptive stripping (AdSDPV) voltammetric method was developed for the determination of LPR. Under these conditions, the current showed a linear dependence with concentration within a range of 0.005-0.20 ppm with a detection limit of 0.0014 ppm. Each determination method was fully validated and applied for the analysis of LPR in its pharmaceutical dosage form.

    ABSTRACT: The NSAID piroxicam (PRX) drug was used for complex formation reactions with Cu(II), Zn(II) and Pt(II) metal salts have been synthesized. Then, these complexes have been characterized by spectroscopic and analytical techniques. Thermal behavior of the complexes were also investigated. The electrochemical properties of all complexes have been investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) using glassy carbon electrode. The biological activity of the complexes has been evaluated by examining their ability to bind to fish sperm double strand DNA (FSFSdsDNA) with UV spectroscopy. UV studies of the interaction of the PRX and its complexes with FSdsDNA have shown that these compounds can bind to FSdsDNA. The binding constants of the compounds with FSdsDNA have also been calculated. The morphology of the FSdsDNA, PRX, metal ions and metal complexes has been investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). To get the SEM images, the interaction of compounds with FSdsDNA has been studied by means of differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) at FSdsDNA modified pencil graphite electrode (PGE). The decrease in intensity of the guanine oxidation signals has been used as an indicator for the interaction mechanism. The effect of proliferation PRX and complexes were examined on the HeLA and C6 cells using real-time cell analyzer with four different concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: AbstractA nanofiber polypyrrole (PPy) film was electrochemically deposited on a Pt electrode and used for immobilization of single‐stranded DNA (ssDNA) and investigation of hybridization events. Then, the interaction of DNA with four salicylic acid (SA) derivatives was studied with electrochemical methods. The oxidation peak of guanine was decreased by increasing the concentrations of salicylic acid derivatives. The binding constants of these compounds with four different sequences of DNA including different percentages of guanine‐cytosine and adenine‐thymine bases were calculated and it was clarified that sequences with higher percentage of adenine‐thymine bases have a higher binding constant in their interaction with SA derivatives.

    ABSTRACT: In this study a novel biosensor for determination of taxol is described. The interaction of taxol with salmon-sperm double-stranded DNA (ds-DNA) based on the decreasing of the oxidation signals of guanine and adenine bases was studied electrochemically with a pencil-graphite electrode (PGE) using a differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) method. The decreases in the intensity of the guanine and adenine oxidation signals after interaction with taxol were used as indicator signals for the sensitive determination of taxol. DPV exhibits a linear dynamic range of 2.0×10−7–1.0×10−5 M for taxol with a detection limit of 8.0×10−8 M. Finally, this modified electrode was used for determination of taxol in some real samples.
