S-nitrosoglutathione reductase (GSNOR), also known as S-(hydroxymethyl)glutathione (HMGSH) dehydrogenase, belongs to the large alcohol dehydrogenase superfamily, namely to the class III ADHs. GSNOR catalyses the oxidation of HMGSH to S-formylglutathione using a catalytic zinc and NAD(+) as a coenzyme. The enzyme also catalyses the NADH-dependent reduction(More)
Cytokinins are hormones that regulate plant development and their environmental responses. Their levels are mainly controlled by the cytokinin oxidase/dehydrogenase (CKO), which oxidatively cleaves cytokinins using redox-active electron acceptors. CKO belongs to the group of flavoproteins with an 8α-N1-histidyl FAD covalent linkage. Here, we investigated(More)
A method for the separation of six selected antihyperglycemic (antidiabetic) drugs (tolbutamide, gliclazide, glimepiride, glibenclamide, repaglinide, and glipizide) was developed with use of micellar electrokinetic chromatography. Two non-ionic poly(ethylene glycol)-based surfactants Genapol X-080 and Triton X-114 (reduced) were studied as neutral(More)
Derivatives of quinoxalin-2-one are interesting compounds with potential pharmacological activity. From this point of view, understanding of their electrochemical behavior is of great importance. In the present paper, a mechanism of electrochemical reduction of quinoxalin-2-one derivatives at mercury dropping electrode was proposed. Pyrazine ring was found(More)
The performances of ionic liquid (1-hexyl-3-methylimidazolium-bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, IL/CPE) and iron phthalocyanine (IP/CPE) modified carbon paste electrodes in electroanalytical determinations of rutin were evaluated and compared to the performance of unmodified carbon paste electrode (CPE). Cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse(More)
A simple, fast and sensitive HPLC method employing dual-channel coulometric detection for the determination of repaglinide in human plasma is presented. The assay involved extraction of repaglinide by ethyl acetate and isocratic reversed-phase liquid chromatography with dual-channel coulometric detection. The mobile phase composition was 50mM disodium(More)
Electrochemical oxidation of the isoquinoline alkaloid berberine in aqueous medium was studied by cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry at a glassy carbon electrode (GCE). Two anodic peaks of the quaternary form of berberine were observed at +1.2V and +1.4V (vs. SCE) in acidic and neutral solutions. When the anodic polarization exceeded the value of(More)
The electrochemical behavior of the herbicide chloridazon, I (pyrazon), at different pH is described. The electrode reaction (one wave in acidic media and another in alkaline media), investigated using direct current and pulse voltammetry, controlled-potential coulometry, and HPLC-MS, is a combination of the electroreduction (two-electron in the first step)(More)
A novel long drop time mercury electrode has been constructed from common fused-silica capillary (50 μm I.D., 360 μm E.D.). Proposed device provides reproducible mercury drops with typical lifetime 40-120 s. The electrode was used for a set of electrocapillary measurements aimed at determination of critical micelle concentration of anionic surfactants by a(More)
The electrochemical behavior of the herbicide metribuzin (4-amino-6-tert-butyl-4,5-dihydro-3-methylthio-1,2,4-triazin-5-one) at mercury electrodes was studied in aqueous solutions by direct current (DC) and tast polarography, differential pulse (DPV) and cyclic voltammetry (CV), and controlled-potential coulometry. The electrolysis products were separated(More)
