We present here, the design, synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, and in vitro biological assessment of a gemcitabine-coumarin-biotin conjugate (5). Probe 5 is a multifunctional molecule composed of a thiol-specific cleavable disulfide bond, a coumarin moiety as a fluorescent reporter, gemcitabine (GMC) as a model active drug, and biotin as a(More)
We present the design, synthesis, optical properties and in vitro biological assessments of the theranostic prodrug in which a near IR fluorophore is conjugated with a cancer cell-directing biotin unit; further it is linked with the anti-cancer drug gemcitabine via a self-immolative spacer, a disulfide bond. The prodrug is able to monitor drug delivery and(More)
Thioredoxin (Trx) is a redox-active protein that plays a key role in mitigating the effects of oxidative stress. The secretion of Trx on the plasma membrane has been suggested as a distinctive feature of inflammation. However, selective monitoring of membrane-associated Trx activity has proved challenging because of the ubiquity of Trx action in cells.(More)
Heptakis{6-(4-hydroxymethyl-1H-[1,2,3]triazol-1-yl)-6-deoxy}-β-cyclodextrin (HTβCD) and heptakis{6-(4-sulfonylmethyl-1H-[1,2,3]triazol-1-yl)-6-deoxy}-β-cyclodextrin (STβCD) were prepared using copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition between 6-azido-6-deoxy-β-CD and one of two alkynes, propargyl alcohol, and sodium propargyl sulfonate, respectively.(More)
To explore the possibility of cyclodextrin click clusters (CCCs) as a new cyclodextrin-based excipient, we prepared three different CCCs; heptakis{6-(4-hydroxymethyl-1H-[1,2,3]triazol-1-yl)-6-deoxy}-β-cyclodextrin (HT-β-CD), heptakis{6-(4-hydroxymethyl-1H-[1,2,3]triazol-1-yl)-6-deoxy}{2,3-di-O-methyl}-β-cyclodextrin (HT-β-CD(OMe)2 ), and(More)
A series of heptamethine cyanine (1-3) derivatives bearing a carbamate ethyl disulfide group and gemcitabine, an anticancer drug, have been newly synthesized. Their disulfide bonds are readily cleaved by various thiols including glutathione, to result in a subsequent decomposition of the carbamate into amine followed by release of the active gemcitabine,(More)
Herein, we present a fluorescent-peptide drug delivery system composed of biotin-naphthalimide-HJ inhibitor peptide2, prodrug 1. Treatment of 1 to biotin receptor-positive HepG2 cells, which are resistant to high concentrations of the HJ inhibitor peptide2, decreased cell viability and increased intracellular fluorescence.
A galactose-appended drug delivery system released camptothecin (CPT) to lysosomes of HepG2 hepatoma cells, resulting in the cell resistance to the anticancer drug. We found that the resistance to CPT is caused by alteration of the drug release from the prodrug in lysosomes, emphasizing that the final delivery locations may critically influence drug(More)
