The enantiomeric separation of a series of basic pharmaceuticals (beta-blockers, local anesthetics, sympathomimetics) has been investigated in nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE) systems using heptakis(2,3-di-O-methyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-cyclodextrin (HDMS-P-CD) in combination with potassium camphorsulfonate (camphorSO(3)(-)). For this purpose, a face-centered central composite design with 11 experimental points was applied. The effect of the concentrations of HDMS-beta-CD and camphorSO(3)(-) on enantioresolution was statistically evaluated and depended largely on the considered analyte. The presence of camphorSO(3)(-) was found to be particularly useful for the enantioseparation of compounds with high affinity for the anionic CD. CamphorSO(3)(-) seems to act as a competitor, reducing the affinity for the CD, probably by ion-pair formation with these analytes. For compounds with lower affinity for HDMS-beta-CD, the combination of camphorSO(3)(-) and the CD appeared to have a favorable effect on enantioresolution only if the optimal CD concentration could be reached. On the other hand, for compounds characterized by a very low affinity for the anionic CD, the association of camphorSO(3)(-) and HDMS-beta-CD is always unfavorable. Finally, experimental conditions were selected by means of the multivariate approach in order to obtain the highest resolution (R-s) value for each studied compound. [less ▲]

Nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE) was successfully applied to the resolution and the determination of salbutamol enantiomers in urine samples using heptakis(2,3-di-O-acetyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-cyclodextrin (HDAS-beta-CD). After optimization of the electrophoretic parameters, namely the background electrolyte (BGE) composition and the HDAS-beta-CD concentration, salbutamol enantiomers were completely resolved using a BGE made up of 10 mm ammonium formate and 15 mm HDAS-beta-CD in methanol acidified with 0.75 M formic acid. Isoprenaline was selected as internal standard. Solid-phase extraction (SPE) was used for sample cleanup prior to the CE separation. Different sorbents involving polar, nonpolar interactions or dual retention mechanisms were evaluated and extraction cartridges containing both nonpolar and strong cation-exchange functionalities were finally selected. Salbutamol enantiomers recoveries from urine samples were determined. The method was then successfully validated using a new approach based on accuracy profiles over a concentration range from 375 to 7500 ng/mL for each enantiomer. [less ▲]

Recently, we showed that platelet phagocytosis occurs in human atherosclerotic plaques and leads to foam cell formation. Platelet phagocytosis, resulting in macrophage activation and iNOS induction, was associated with the formation of amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) via proteolytic cleavage of platelet-derived amyloid precursor protein (APP), possibly by secretases. To test the involvement of gamma-secretase in this process, we used indomethacin, ibuprofen, and sulindac sulfide, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) known to alter the gamma-secretase cleaving site of APP, on their ability to inhibit macrophage activation evoked by platelet phagocytosis. J774 macrophages were incubated with human platelets or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) with or without NSAIDs. Nitrite was quantified as a measure for inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) activity. Indomethacin, ibuprofen, sulindac sulfide, and meloxicam concentration-dependently reduced nitrite production by macrophages incubated with platelets, but did not alter LPS-induced iNOS activity or platelet uptake. However, acetylsalicylic acid and naproxen, two NSAIDs without effect on the gamma-secretase cleaving site of APP, did not affect nitrite production in either platelet- or LPS-stimulated macrophages. Surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass-spectrometry demonstrated time-dependent formation of Abeta-containing peptides after platelet phagocytosis, which could be inhibited by indomethacin. In conclusion, these results point to the involvement of gamma-secretase in macrophage activation following platelet phagocytosis. [less ▲]

A new automated method for the quantitative analysis of cyproterone acetate (CPA) in human plasma has been developed using on-line solid phase extraction (SPE) prior to the LC-MS/MS determination. The method was based on the use of a pre-column packed with internal-surface reversed-phase material (LiChrospher RP-4 ADS, 25 mm x 2 mm) for sample clean-up coupled to LC separation on an octadecyl silica stationary phase by means of a column switching system. A 30 microl plasma sample volume was injected directly onto the pre-column using a mixture of water, acetonitrile and formic acid (90:10:0.1 (v/v/v)) adjusted to pH 4.0 with diluted ammonia as washing liquid. The analyte was then eluted in the back-flush mode with the LC mobile phase consisting of water, methanol and formic acid (10:90:0.1 (v/v/v)). The dispensing flow rates of the washing liquid and the LC mobile phase were 300 microl min(-1). Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) was used as internal standard. The MS ionization of the analytes was achieved using electrospray (ESI) in the positive ion mode. The pseudomolecular ionic species of CPA and MPA (417.4 and 387.5) were selected to generate daughter ions at 357.4 and 327.5, respectively. Finally, the developed method was validated according to a new approach using accuracy profiles as a decision tool. Very good results with respect to accuracy, detectability, repeatability, intermediate precision and selectivity were obtained. The LOQ of cyproterone acetate was 300 pg ml(-1). [less ▲]

Ceramides are important intracellular second messengers that play a role in the regulation of cell growth, differentiation, and programmed cell death. To determine whether ceramides can mediate the apoptosis of HCT116 and OVCAR-3 cancer cells, exogenous C2-, C6-, and C16-ceramides were used to mimic the endogenous lipid increase that follows a large variety of stresses. C2- and C6-ceramides (cell-permeable ceramide analogs), but not C16-ceramide, induced nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) DNA-binding, caspase-3 activation, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase degradation, and mitochondrial cytochrome c release, indicating that apoptosis occurs through the caspase cascade and the mitochondrial pathway. No difference in survival was observed between control cells and cells expressing mutated IkappaBalpha and treated with the permeable ceramides. This suggests that, at least in these cell lines, stable NF-kappaB inhibition did not modify the ceramide-induced cytotoxicity pathway. C6-ceramide also induced a double block in G1 and G2, thus emptying the S phase. [less ▲]

The ubiquitous NF-kappaB transcription factor has been reported to inhibit apoptosis and to induce drug resistance in cancer cells. Drug resistance is the major reason for cancer therapy failure and neoplastic cells often develop multiple mechanisms of drug resistance during tumor progression. We observed that NF-kappaB or P-glycoprotein inhibition in the HCT15 colon cancer cells led to increased apoptotic cell death in response to daunomycin treatment. Interestingly, NF-kappaB inhibition through transfection of a plasmid coding for a mutated IkappaB-alpha inhibitor increased daunomycin cell uptake. Indeed, the inhibition of NF-kappaB reduced mdr1 mRNA and P-glycoprotein expression in HCT15 cells. We identified a consensus NF-kappaB binding site in the first intron of the human mdr1 gene and demonstrated that NF-kappaB complexes could bind with this intronic site. Moreover, NF-kappaB transactivates an mdr1 promoter luciferase construct. Our data thus demonstrate a role for NF-kappaB in the regulation of the mdr1 gene expression in cancer cells and in drug resistance. [less ▲]
