The effect of milk on the antioxidant capacity of tea polyphenols is not fully understood. The complexation of tea polyphenols with milk proteins can alter the antioxidant activity of tea compounds and the protein secondary structure. This study was designed to examine the interaction of β-lactogolobulin (β-LG) with tea polyphenols (+)-catechin (C),(More)
We report the complexation of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with resveratrol, genistein, and curcumin, at physiological conditions, using constant protein concentration and various polyphenol contents. FTIR, CD, and fluorescence spectroscopic methods were used to analyze the ligand binding mode, the binding constant, and the effects of complexation on BSA(More)
The intercalation of antitumor drug doxorubicin (DOX) and its analogue N-(trifluoroacetyl) doxorubicin (FDOX) with DNA duplex was investigated, using FTIR, CD, fluorescence spectroscopic methods and molecular modeling. Both DOX and FDOX were intercalated into DNA duplex with the free binding energy of -4.99 kcal for DOX-DNA and -4.92 kcal for FDOX-DNA(More)
Tamoxifen is extensively metabolized, and several metabolites have been detected in human serum. The aim of this study was to examine the interaction of human serum albumin (HSA) with tamoxifen and its metabolites 4-hydroxytamoxifen and endoxifen at physiological conditions, using constant protein concentration and various drug contents. FTIR, UV-Visible,(More)
Biogenic polyamines are found to modulate protein synthesis at different levels, while polyamine analogues have shown major antitumor activity in multiple experimental models, including breast cancer. The aim of this study was to examine the interaction of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with biogenic polyamines, spermine and spermidine, and polyamine analogues(More)
Biogenic polyamines are found to modulate protein synthesis at different levels. This effect may be explained by the ability of polyamines to bind and influence the secondary structure of tRNA, mRNA, and rRNA. We report the interaction between tRNA and the three biogenic polyamines putrescine, spermidine, spermine, and cobalt(III)hexamine at physiological(More)
We located the binding sites of doxorubicin (DOX) and N-(trifluoroacetyl) doxorubicin (FDOX) with bovine serum albumin (BSA) and human serum albumins (HSA) at physiological conditions, using constant protein concentration and various drug contents. FTIR, CD and fluorescence spectroscopic methods as well as molecular modeling were used to analyse drug(More)
The breast anticancer drug tamoxifen and its metabolites bind serum albumins. We located the binding sites of tamoxifen, 4-hydroxytamoxifen and endoxifen on bovine serum albumin (BSA). FTIR, CD and fluorescence spectroscopic methods as well as molecular modeling were used to characterize the drug binding mode, binding constant and the effect of drug binding(More)
The binding sites of retinol and retinoic acid with milk α- and β-caseins were determined, using constant protein concentration and various retinoid contents. FTIR, UV-visible and fluorescence spectroscopic methods as well as molecular modelling were used to analyse retinol and retinoic acid binding sites, the binding constant and the effect of retinoid(More)
The interaction of folic acid with human serum (HSA) and bovine serum albumins (BSA) at physiological conditions, using constant protein concentration and various folic acid contents was investigated. FTIR, UV-visible and fluorescence spectroscopic methods as well as molecular modelling were used to analyse folic acid binding sites, the binding constant and(More)
