Data-Driven Identification of Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers.

Summary of "Data-Driven Identification of Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers."

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an important signalling molecule whose up- and down-regulation have specific biological consequences. Although significant advances in H2S up-regulation, via the development of H2S donors, have been achieved in recent years, precise H2S down-regulation in biological systems is still challenging. The lack of potent and specific inhibitors for H2S-producing enzymes contributes to this problem. We expect the development of H2S scavengers is an alternative approach to address this problem. Since H2S's chemical sensors and scavengers share almost the same criteria, we have constructed a H2S sensor database, which summarizes key parameters of all reported chemical sensors. Data-driven analysis led to the selection of 30 potential scavenger compounds. Further evaluation of these compounds identified a group of promising scavengers, based on the sulfonyl azide template. The efficiency of these scavengers in both in vitro and in vivo experiments was demonstrated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A NADPH-dependent oxidase that reduces hydrogen sulfite to HYDROGEN SULFIDE. It is found in many microoganisms.

Polymers of N-SUBSTITUTED GLYCINES containing chiral centers at the a-position of their side chains. These oligomers lack HYDROGEN BONDING donors, preventing formation of the usual intrachain hydrogen bonds but can form helices driven by the steric influence of chiral side chains.

A crystalline compound used as a laboratory reagent in place of HYDROGEN SULFIDE. It is a potent hepatocarcinogen.

A genus of phototrophic, obligately anaerobic bacteria in the family Chlorobiaceae. They are found in hydrogen sulfide-containing mud and water environments.

A water-soluble thiol derived from hydrogen sulfide and ethanol. It is used as a reducing agent for disulfide bonds and to protect sulfhydryl groups from oxidation.
