  • Paramagnetic ruthenium species are formed in X zeolites with different cocations after evacuation at 300{degree}C and subsequent adsorption of various molecules. The various species formed after activation were characterized by electron spin resonance (ESR) and electron spin echo modulation (ESEM) spectroscopies. No major difference was observed in the ESR spectra after activation for the zeolites exchanged with (Ru(NH{sub 3}){sub 6})Cl{sub 3} or (Ru(NH{sub 3}){sub 5}Cl)Cl{sub 2}. Activation of these zeolites did not generate any substantial amount of paramagnetic species. However, exposure of the activated zeolite, except for RuLi-X, to CO, O{sub 2}, and H{sub 2}O resulted in a significant increasemore » in the spin concentration which was assigned mainly to Ru(III) species. The increase in the spin concentration is suggested to be due to dissociation of Ru(III) dimers in the {beta}-cage of the zeolite structure when an adsorbate is added. Adsorption of CO and O{sub 2} generated one or more Ru(III) adducts depending on the nature of the cocation.« less
  • Oxidative damage is an important mechanism in X-ray-induced cell death. Radiolysis of water molecules is a source of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that contribute to X-ray-induced cell death. In this study, we showed by ROS detection and a cell survival assay that NADPH oxidase has a very important role in X-ray-induced cell death. Under X-ray irradiation, the upregulation of the expression of NADPH oxidase membrane subunit gp91{sup phox} was dose-dependent. Meanwhile, the cytoplasmic subunit p47{sup phox} was translocated to the cell membrane and localized with p22{sup phox} and gp91{sup phox} to form reactive NADPH oxidase. Our data suggest, for themore » first time, that NADPH oxidase-mediated generation of ROS is an important contributor to X-ray-induced cell death. This suggests a new target for combined gene transfer and radiotherapy.« less
  • CIL-102 (1-[4-(furo[2,3-b]quinolin-4-ylamino)phenyl]ethanone) is the major active agent of the alkaloid derivative of Camptotheca acuminata, with multiple pharmacological activities, including anticancer effects and promotion of apoptosis. The mechanism by which CIL-102 inhibits growth remains poorly understood in human astrocytoma cells. Herein, we investigated the molecular mechanisms by which CIL-102 affects the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and cell cycle G2/M arrest in glioma cells. Treatment of U87 cells with 1.0 μM CIL-102 resulted in phosphorylation of extracellular signal-related kinase (ERK1/2), downregulation of cell cycle-related proteins (cyclin A, cyclin B, cyclin D1, and cdk1), and phosphorylation of cdk1Tyr{sup 15} and Cdc25cSer{supmore » 216}. Furthermore, treatment with the ERK1/2 inhibitor PD98059 abolished CIL-102-induced Cdc25cSer{sup 216} expression and reversed CIL-102-inhibited cdk1 activation. In addition, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), an ROS scavenger, blocked cell cycle G2/M arrest and phosphorylation of ERK1/2 and Cdc25cSer{sup 216} in U87 cells. CIL-102-mediated ERK1/2 and ROS production, and cell cycle arrest were blocked by treatment with specific inhibitors. In conclusion, we have identified a novel CIL-102-inhibited proliferation in U87 cells by activating the ERK1/2 and Cdc25cSer{sup 216} cell cycle-related proteins and inducing ROS production; this might be a new mechanism in human astrocytoma cells. -- Highlights: ► We show the effects of CIL-102 on the G2/M arrest of human astrocytoma cells. ► ROS and the Ras/ERK1/2 triggering pathways are involved in the CIL-102 treatment. ► CIL-102 induces sustained activation of ERK1/2 and Cdc25c and ROS are required.« less
  • Electron spin resonance spectroscopy was used to characterize paramagnetic Rh species formed in RhCa-L and RhCa-M channel zeolites during ethylene dimerization. Activation of RhCa-M in the range 560-580 K generates species M1, assigned to Rh(II) coordinated to four oxygens of a twisted eight-membered ring in the zeolite structure. Similar activation of RhCa-L generates very weak signals, indicating that only very small amounts of Rh(II) are formed after activation. Adsorption of ethylene onto RhCa-M at 77 K followed by warming to 195 and 296 K generates paramagnetic Rh(II) species E2, which was observed previously in the cage zeolite RhCa-X. Two paramagneticmore » Rh(II) species, E1 and E2, are formed in RhCa-L. In contrast to the cage zeolite RhCa-X, where E2 has axial symmetry, species E2 in RhCa-L and RhCa-M has rhombic symmetry, resulting from the lower symmetry of the cation sites of these zeolite structures.« less
