    ABSTRACT: In this study, we report the design, synthesis and antioxidant activity of a series of substituted 2-(4-aminophenyl)-1H-indoles and 2-(methoxyphenyl)-1H-indoles. The new compounds are structurally related to the known indole-based antioxidant lead compound melatonin (MLT), and the antitumour 2-(4-aminophenyl)benzothiazole and 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)benzothiazole series. Efficient access to the target 2-phenylindoles was achieved via Fischer indole synthesis between substituted phenylhydrazines and acetophenones. 2-(4-Aminophenyl)indoles (such as the 6-fluoro analogue 3b) in particular showed potent antioxidant activity in the DPPH and superoxide radical scavenging assays (80% and 81% inhibition at 1mM concentration of 3b, respectively), at a level comparable with the reference standard MLT (98% and 75% at 1mM).

    ABSTRACT: Increased levels of reactive oxygen species attributed to oxidative stress have been found to be responsible for the development of some vital diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases. Recently, it was observed that melatonin is a highly important antioxidant, and melatonin analogues are under investigation to find out improved antioxidant activity. In this study, 14 melatonin -based analogue indole amino acid and N-protected amino acid derivatives were synthesized and elucidated spectrometrically. To investigate the antioxidant activity of the synthesized compounds and to compare with melatonin, butylhydroxytoluene and vitamin E, lipid peroxidation inhibition and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical-scavenging activities were tested. The results indicated that the synthesized new indole amino acid derivatives have similar activities to melatonin in 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical-scavenging activity assay but more potent activities in lipid peroxidation inhibition assay.

    ABSTRACT: Melatonin (MLT) is a hormone synthesized from the pineal gland. It is a direct scavenger of free radicals, which is related to its capability to defend cells from oxidative stress. Recently MLT-related compounds are under investigation to establish which exhibit the maximum activity with the lowest side effects. In this study 5-chloroindole hydrazide/hydrazone derivatives were synthesized from 5-chloroindole-3-carboxaldehyde and phenyl hydrazine derivatives. All the compounds characterized and in vitro antioxidant activity was investigated against MLT and BHT. Most of the compounds showed strong inhibitory effect on the superoxide radical scavenging assay at 1 mM concentration (79 to 95%). Almost all the tested compounds possessed strong scavenging activity against the DPPH radical scavenging activity with IC(50) values (2 to 60 µM). Lastly, compound 1j revealed stronger inhibitory activity against MLT in the LP inhibitory assay at 0.1mM concentration (51%) while the rest of the compounds showed moderate inhibition.

    ABSTRACT: A number of benzimidazole compounds namely, N-(4-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)phenyl)-4-(1H-benzimidazol-2- yl)-benzamide derivatives (8-10) and N-(3- or 4-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)phenyl)-2-phenyl-1H-benzimidazole-5- carboxamide derivatives (18-21) were synthesized and antibacterial and antioxidant activities were evaluated. Antibacterial activities of 9, 10, 18, and 20 against MRSA-isolate are equal to ampicillin. Compounds 18, 19, and 21 displayed better antifungal activities against Candida albicans. Antioxidant properties were evaluated by several methods, such as inhibition of lipid peroxidation, superoxide anion production, and DPPH stable free radical, and also their effects on hepatic cytochrome P450 (CYP) dependent ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) enzyme were determined in rats in vitro. Compounds 18 and 20 had strong scavenger effect on superoxide anion (90%, and 99%, respectively) at 10-3 M concentration. Compound 19 showed significant inhibition on EROD activity with 98%, which is better than that of caffeine being a specific inhibitor of EROD activity (85%).

    ABSTRACT: Free radical damage has been associated with a growing number of diseases and conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative disorders and multiple types of cancer. Some dehydroamino acids and corresponding peptides can function as radical scavengers. In this study the in vitro effects on rat liver lipid peroxidation levels of fourteen N-substituted dehydroamino acid derivatives and alpha-tocopherol were investigated. alpha-Tocopherol is a powerful antioxidant that is beneficial in the treatment of many free radical related diseases. The results indicated that all the compounds showed very good inhibitory effect on the lipid peroxidation compound with alpha-tocopherol at 1 mM concentrations and the inhibition rate was in the range of 70-79 % with the exception of compound 5. At 0.1 mM concentrations compounds 1, 2 and 9 were found more active than alpha-tocopherol. The results confirmed that molecules such as dehydroamino acids which have reactive double bonds can act as a guard in vitro against oxidants.

    ABSTRACT: Melatonin (MLT) is a hormone produced in the brain by the pineal gland, from the amino acid tryptophan. It is also an antioxidant hormone with a particular role in the protection of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. In recent years, many physiological properties of MLT have been described resulting in much attention in the development of synthetic compounds possessing the indole ring. Sixteen MLT analogue indole hydrazide/hydrazone derivatives were synthesized and in vitro antioxidant activity was investigated. Most of the compounds showed significantly higher activity than MLT at 10(-3) M and 10(-4) M concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: Antioxidants are compounds that can delay, inhibit, or prevent the oxidation of materials that can be oxidized by scavenging free radicals and help in diminishing oxidative stress. They belong to different chemical classes. Recently there are studies related to pyridazinone derivatives for their antioxidant activities. Since there are evidences implicates reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide as mediators of inflammation and/or tissue damage in inflammatory and arthritic disorders it was though that compounds that have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities would have been essential for the inflammatory diseases. Based on these findings a series of 2H-pyridazine-3-one and 6-chloropyridazine analogues that have anti-inflammatory activity was tested in vitro on superoxide formation and effects on lipid peroxidation were determined against alpha-tocopherol. Most of the compounds have strong inhibitory effect on superoxide anion (between 84% - 99%) at 10(- 3) M concentration. In addition, these compounds showed similar activity to alpha-tocopherol at 10(- 3) M concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: We have previously reported on the synthesis of novel indole derivatives where some compounds showed significant antioxidant activity. Here, we report the synthesis of novel N-H and N-substituted indole-2- and 3-carboxamide derivatives and investigated their antioxidant role in order to identify structural characteristics responsible for activity. Although all compounds showed a strong inhibitory (95-100%) effect on superoxide anion (SOD) only compounds 4, 5 and 6 showed simliar potency for the inhibition of lipid peroxidation (81-94%) which revealed that compounds 4, 5 and 6 possessed highly potent antioxidant properties. Substitution in the 1-position of the indole ring caused the significant differences between the activity results regarding lipid peroxidation inhibition.

    ABSTRACT: The antioxidant role of novel N-substituted indole-2-carboxamides (I2CDs) was investigated for their inhibitory effects on superoxide anion (O2-) and lipid peroxidation (LP). Among the synthesized I2CDs, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 9 significantly inhibited O2*- with an inhibition range at 70-98%. Examination of substituent effects on activity showed that both the ortho- and para- positions of the benzamide residue needs to be dichlorinated in order to get a maximum inhibitory effect on superoxide anion. In general, halogenated derivatives were found more active then the non-halogenated ones. However, none of the I2CDs had a significant inhibitory effects on the level of lipid peroxidation; only compounds 7 and 10 moderately decreased LP levels by over 50% at 10(-3) M concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: Oxidative stress has been implicated in the development of many neurodegenerative diseases and also responsible from aging and some cancer types. Indolic compounds are a broad family of substances present in microorganisms, plants and animals. They are mainly related to tryptophan metabolism, and present particular properties that depend on their respective chemical structures. Due to free radical scavenger and antioxidant properties of indolic derivatives such as indolinic nitroxides and melatonin, a series of 2-phenyl indole derivatives were prepared and their in vitro effects on rat liver lipid peroxidation levels, superoxide formation and DPPH stable radical scavenging activities were determined against melatonin, BHT and alpha-tocopherol. The compounds significantly inhibited (72-98%) lipid peroxidation at 10(-3) M. These values were similar to that observed with BHT (88%). Possible structure-activity relationships of the compounds were discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Oxidative stress has been implicated in the development of many neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson and Alzhemier's disease and is also responsible for aging, artherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and carcinogenesis. Olefins such as dehydroalanines have been shown to inactivate free radicals by forming stabilized free radical adducts. Among these molecules N-acyl dehydroalanines react with and scavenge oxygen and hydroxyl radicals. This study describes the synthesis, characterization and in vitro effects on rat liver lipid peroxidation levels, and DPPH free radical scavenging activities of some N-acyl dehydroalanine derivatives. Compounds c, f and j slightly scavenged the level of DPPH radical at 10(-3) M concentration by about 27, 46, and 56%, respectively while compounds a, d, e, f, g, h showed a strong inhibitory effect on lipid peroxidation at 10(-3)M and 10(-4)M concentrations and inhibition was in the range of 76-90%. The possible antioxidant mechanism of the compounds was discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A number of retinoid-related compounds represent classes of antioxidative and proapoptotic agents with promising potential in the treatment of neoplastic diseases. Indeed, the synthetic retinoid amide fenretinide [N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)retinamide] induces apoptosis of cancer cells and acts as a chemotherapeutic drug in cancer therapy. In the present work, and as a continuation of our studies on retinoid-type compounds, the synthesis of melatonin retinamide derivatives was studied as a novel series of melatonin retinoids, using the condensation reaction sequence involving tetrahydrotetramethylnaphthalene carboxylic acid and appropriate melatonin-type moieties. Despite of the weak DPPH inhibition activity pattern of the synthesized compounds, some of them showed a strong inhibition on lipid peroxidation (IVa-b, Va, and VIIa-c, 88, 96, 90, 94, 93, and 86%, respectively at 10(-4) M concentration) when melatonin (85% at 10(-4) M concentration) was used as a reference compound.

    ABSTRACT: To understand antioxidant activity and the role played by melatonin, we have designed and tested several new compounds. We present the results in terms of structure-activity relationships, focusing on the lack of the methoxy group and the influence of the amide side chain. Antioxidant activity of melatonin and some new melatonin analogue indole derivatives were investigated, using lipid peroxidation and superoxide anion radical scavenger activity assays, in rat liver tissue homogenate. Most of the compounds were found to be very potent inhibitors of malondialdehyde (MDA) formation at 10−3M. Inhibition rates ranged from 75-44 %. However, no significant inhibitory effect was obtained on superoxide anion formation. Consequently, it can be concluded that these compounds exhibit important LP activity compared to melatonin.

    ABSTRACT: Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4), a member of multigene superfamily of enzymes, plays a major role in the activation of procarcinogens such as polycyclic hydrocarbon dihydrodiols, aflatoxins and heterocyclic amines as well as of several drugs including tamoxifen which is used in breast cancer therapy. Using immunohistochemistry, the cellular distribution and the level of expression of CYP3A4 was assessed in breast tumour and surrounding tumour free (control) breast tissue in 25 pairs of samples obtained from females with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. Cells staining with the CYP3A4 antibody showed only cytoplasmic positivity with varying intensities in 100% (25/25) of tumours and 68% (17/25) of normal breast tissues. Cytoplasmic staining was present in invasive ductal carcinoma cells but not in tumour stroma. CYP3A4 was detected in normal epithelium and myoepithelium. Only focal staining was noted in some of the non-epithelial cells (e.g. endothelial cells) in normal breast tissues. When CYP3A4 staining was assessed semiquantitatively the mean staining score values of CYP3A4 were found to be significantly higher in tumours compared to that of normal breast tissues. These results show that CYP3A4 protein is expressed in both tumour and normal breast tissue with an increased expression in tumours.

    ABSTRACT: Environmental chemicals are one of the risk factors in breast cancer genesis. Cytochrome P450 2E1 (CYP2E1), a member of multigene superfamily of enzymes, plays a major role in the activation of some of these chemicals such as tobacco-derived N-nitrosamines. Using immunohistochemistry, the cellular distribution and the level of expression of CYP2E1 was assessed in breast tumour and surrounding tumour free (control) breast tissue in 25 pairs of samples obtained from females with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. Cells staining with the CYP2E1 antibody showed only cytoplasmic positivity with varying intensities in 100% (25/25) of tumours and 96% (24/25) of normal breast tissues. Cytoplasmic staining was present in invasive ductal carcinoma cells but not in tumour stroma. CYP2E1 was detected in normal epithelial, myoepithelial and to a lesser degree in some of the non-epithelial cells (e.g. endothelial cells). No positive staining was detected in other non-epithelial cells such as fibroblasts in normal breast tissues. When CYP2E1 staining was assessed semiquantitatively the mean staining score values of CYP2E1 was found to be significantly higher in tumours compared to that of normal breast tissues. These results show that CYP2E1 protein is expressed in both tumour and normal breast tissue with an increased expression in breast tumours.

    ABSTRACT: The levels of some organochlorine pesticides (OCP)s (hexachlorobenzene, HCB, alpha-hexachlorocyclohexane, alpha-HCH, beta-HCH, gamma-HCH, heptachlorepoxide, HE, bis (4-chlorophenyl)-1,1-dichloroethene, p.p'DDE, bis (4-chlorophenyl)-1,1,1-trichloroethane, p.p' DDT and total DDT (E-DDT) and antioxidant enzyme activities namely Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), selenium-dependent glutathione peroxidase (Se-GSH-Px), total glutathione peroxidase (T-GSH-Px), selenium independent glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px II), glutathione reductase (GRd), level of reduced glutathione (GSH) and lipid peroxidation (LP), glutathione S-transferase (GST) activity toward several substrates including 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (CDNB), 1,2-dichloro-4-nitrobenzene (DCNB), ethacrynic acid (EAA), 1,2-epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenoxy)-propane (ENPP) were measured in tumor and surrounding tumor free tissues of 24 female breast cancer patients and was evaluated whether there exist any association between the levels of OCPs and antioxidants. The mean levels of GSH, alpha-BHC, gamma-BHC and HE, and activities of SOD, Se-GSH-Px, T-GSH-Px, GSH-Px II,GRd, GST CDNB, and GST DCNB were significantly higher in tumors than in controls. In tumors, significant correlations were noted between: SOD and y-BHC; Se-GSH-Px and gamma-BHC; T-GSH-Px and gamma-BHC; GSH-Px II and alpha-BHC, gamma-BHC; GSH and alpha-BHC, gamma-BHC, HE; GRd and alpha-BHC; CDNB GST and alpha-BHC, gamma-BHC. These results show that free-radical mediated oxidative stress is, at least partly, associated with some of these OCP residues in human breast tumors.
