A series of novel N≡C-CH-B-F system BODIPY were designed and synthesized by introducing aldehyde and acetonitrile units which gave positive influence to spectroscopic and chemical properties of BODIPY derivatives. The effects of glycine (Gly) on the target products were studied via ultraviolet and visible spectrophotometry (UV-Vis) and photoluminescence (PL) under different conditions of the presence and absence of cations (K, Ca, Zn). It was showed that glycine has an intense quenching effect on the compounds in both the presence and absence of ions with a dramatic color change from notable red to light orange owing to the addition of Gly. With regard to cells imaging investigation, the products showed the prominent fluorescence in cholangiocarcinoma cells. The luminescent effect of compounds 1 and 3 entering the cells was significantly stronger than that of compound 2. In addition, pertaining to anticancer properties, two human cancer cell lines (RBE, HCCC-9810) and one normal cell line (L-02) were evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity. The target compounds, 1-3, exhibited moderate antitumor activity, of which compound 1 was found to be the most potent derivative with IC values of 119.31 ± 6.25, 114.73 ± 3.25, and 106.33 ± 5.22 against RBE, HCCC-9810, and L-02 cells, respectively, slightly weaker than the positive control 5-FU.

A PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE dependent enzyme that catalyzes the decarboxylation of GLYCINE with the transfer of an aminomethyl group to the LIPOIC ACID moiety of the GLYCINE DECARBOXYLASE COMPLEX H-PROTEIN. Defects in P-protein are the cause of non-ketotic hyperglycinemia. It is one of four subunits of the glycine decarboxylase complex.
A family of sodium chloride-dependent neurotransmitter symporters that transport the amino acid GLYCINE. They differ from GLYCINE RECEPTORS, which signal cellular responses to GLYCINE. They are located primarily on the PLASMA MEMBRANE of NEURONS; GLIAL CELLS; EPITHELIAL CELLS; and RED BLOOD CELLS where they remove inhibitory neurotransmitter glycine from the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE.
Measurement of the intensity and quality of fluorescence.
Cell surface receptors that bind glycine with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Glycine receptors in the central nervous system have an intrinsic chloride channel and are usually inhibitory.
An oxidoreductase that catalyzes the oxidative DEAMINATION of GLYCINE to glyoxylate and AMMONIA in the presence of NAD. In BACTERIA lacking transaminating pathways the enzyme can act in the reverse direction to synthesize glycine from glyoxylate and ammonia and NADH.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
