Summary of "Gallate-induced nanoparticle uptake by tumor cells: Structure-activity relationships."

How nanoparticles interact with biological systems determines whether they can be used in theranostic applications. It has been demonstrated that tea catechins, may enhance interactions of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) with tumor cells and the subsequent cellular internalization of MNPs. As part of the chemical structure of the major tea catechins, gallates are found in a variety of plants and thus food components. We asked whether the structure of gallate might act as a pharmacophore in the enhancement of the effects of MNP-cell interactions. Uptake of dextran-coated MNPs by glioma cells and cell-associated MNPs (MNP) were respectively analyzed by confocal microscopy and a colorimetric iron assay. Co-incubation of MNPs and gallates, such as gallic acid and methyl gallate, induced a concentration-dependent increase in MNP, which was associated with co-localization of internalized MNPs and lysosomes. An analysis of the structure-activity relationship (SAR) revealed that the galloyl moiety exerted the most prominent enhancement effects on MNP which was further potentiated by the application of magnetic force; catechol coupled with a conjugated carboxylic acid side chain displayed comparable effects to gallate. Blockade or reduction in the number of hydroxyl groups rendered these compounds less effective, but without inducing cytotoxicity. The SAR results suggest that neighboring hydroxyl groups on the aromatic ring form an essential scaffold for the uptake effects; a similar SAR on antioxidant activities was also observed using a free radical-scavenging method. The results provide pivotal information for theranostic applications of gallates by facilitating nanoparticle-cell interactions and nanoparticle internalization by tumor cells.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

Drugs that inhibit the transport of neurotransmitters into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. For many transmitters, uptake determines the time course of transmitter action so inhibiting uptake prolongs the activity of the transmitter. Blocking uptake may also deplete available transmitter stores. Many clinically important drugs are uptake inhibitors although the indirect reactions of the brain rather than the acute block of uptake itself is often responsible for the therapeutic effects.

Form of adoptive transfer where cells with antitumor activity are transferred to the tumor-bearing host in order to mediate tumor regression. The lymphoid cells commonly used are lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL). This is usually considered a form of passive immunotherapy. (From DeVita, et al., Cancer, 1993, pp.305-7, 314)

A quantitative prediction of the biological, ecotoxicological or pharmaceutical activity of a molecule. It is based upon structure and activity information gathered from a series of similar compounds.

A cytologic technique for measuring the functional capacity of tumor stem cells by assaying their activity. It is used primarily for the in vitro testing of antineoplastic agents.
