The origin of hydrogen peroxide in oral cavity and its role in oral microecology balance.

Hydrogen peroxide, an important antimicrobial agent in oral cavity, plays a significant role in the balance of oral microecology. At the early stage of biofilm formation, about 80% of the detected initial colonizers belong to the genus Streptococcus. These oral streptococci use different oxidase to produce hydrogen peroxide. Recent studies showed that the produced hydrogen peroxide plays a critical role in modulating oral microecology. Hydrogen peroxide modulates biofilm development attributed to its growth...

OO bond homolysis in hydrogen peroxide.

OO bond homolysis in hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) has been studied using theoretical methods of four conceptually different types: hybrid DFT (B3LYP, M06-2X), double-hybrid DFT (B2-PLYP), coupled-cluster (CCSD(T)), and multiconfigurational (CASPT2). In addition, the effects of basis set size have also been analyzed. For all of these methods, the OO bond homolysis in hydrogen peroxide has been found to proceed through hydrogen bonded radical pair complexes. Reaction barriers for collapse of the radical p...

Generation of superoxide and hydrogen peroxide by side reactions of mitochondrial 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase complexes in isolation and in cells.

Mitochondrial 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase complexes oxidize 2-oxoglutarate, pyruvate, branched-chain 2-oxoacids and 2-oxoadipate to the corresponding acyl-CoAs and reduce NAD+ to NADH. The isolated enzyme complexes generate superoxide anion radical or hydrogen peroxide in defined reactions by leaking electrons to oxygen. Studies using isolated mitochondria in media mimicking cytosol suggest that the 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase complexes contribute little to the production of superoxide or hydrogen peroxide relative...

Hydroxyl radical yields in the Fenton process under various pH, ligand concentrations and hydrogen peroxide/Fe(II) ratios.

The Fenton process, one of several advanced oxidation processes, describes the reaction of Fe(II) with hydrogen peroxide. Fe(II) is oxidized to Fe(III) that reacts with hydrogen peroxide to Fe(II) and again initiates the Fenton reaction. In the course of the reactions reactive species, e.g. hydroxyl radicals, are formed. Conditions such as pH, ligand concentrations and the hydrogen peroxide/Fe(II) ratio may influence the OH radical yield. It could be shown that at pH < 2.7 and >3.5 the OH radical yield decr...

Allelic variation partially regulates galactose-dependent hydrogen peroxide release from circulating hemocytes of the snail Biomphalaria glabrata.

Freshwater snails are the intermediate hosts for numerous parasitic worms that are detrimental to human and agricultural health. Understanding the immune responses of these snails could be vital for finding ways to block transmission of those parasites. Allelic variation in a recently discovered genomic region in the snail, Biomphalaria glabrata, influences their susceptibility to schistosomes. Here we tested whether genes in that region, termed the Guadeloupe Resistance Complex (GRC), are involved in recog...

Calcium Phosphate Microspheres as a Delivery Vehicle for Tooth-Bleaching Agents.

Bleaching of vital teeth has become common practice in cosmetic dentistry today. Tooth sensitivity and demineralization of the enamel are, however, common side effects associated with hydrogen and carbamide peroxide bleaching. This study investigated if calcium phosphate microspheres, which have remineralizing properties, could be used as an additive without hindering the diffusion of the bleaching agent and if the spheres could be used as a carrier for carbamide peroxide. A remineralizing agent could incre...

Inhibition of Initial Attachment of Injured Salmonella Typhimurium onto Abiotic Surfaces.

Following sanitation interventions in food processing facilities, sublethally injured bacterial cells can remain on food contact surfaces.

Self-cascade reaction catalyzed by CuO nanoparticle-based dual-functional enzyme mimics.

It is desirable but challenging to assemble various biomimetic properties into a functional catalytic cascade system. In this work, cupric oxide nanoparticles were investigated as oxidase mimics for the aerobic oxidation of cysteine to cystine with the generation of hydrogen peroxide. Coupling this property with the peroxidase-like activity of CuO nanoparticles, we constructed a self-organized cascade reaction system based on a single-component nanozyme, which includes the oxidation of cysteine to yield cys...

Hydrogen peroxide yields mechanistic insights into human mRNA capping enzyme function.

Capping of nascent RNA polymerase II (Pol II) transcripts is required for gene expression and the first two steps are catalyzed by separate 5' triphosphatase and guanylyltransferase activities of the human capping enzyme (HCE). The cap is added co-transcriptionally, but how the two activities are coordinated is unclear. Our previous in vitro work has suggested that an unidentified factor modulates the minimum length at which nascent transcripts can be capped. Using the same well-established in vitro system ...

Hydrogen peroxide: more harm than good?

TIF1β is phosphorylated at serine 473 in colorectal tumor cells through p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase as an oxidative defense mechanism.

TIF1β is a pleiotropic regulator of a diverse range of cellular processes such as DNA repair or gene repression in stem cells. This functional switch depends on phosphorylation at serine residue 473 and multiple pathways exist to accomplish this. However, the effects of exogenous reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by bacterial flora and dietary metabolites in the colonic lumen or chemotherapy on TIF1β have not been determined. We report here that exposure of colorectal cancer (CRC) cell lines DLD-1 a...

Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase-L1 plays a key role in angiogenesis by regulating hydrogen peroxide generated by NADPH oxidase 4.

Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase-L1 (UCH-L1), which catalyzes the hydrolysis of ubiquitin esters and amides, is highly expressed in brain. Recently, UCH-L1 has been found to increase cancer cell migration and invasion by modulating hydrogen peroxide generated by NADPH oxidase 4 (NOX4). Because angiogenesis is also mediated by hydrogen peroxide, we explored the role of UCH-L1 in angiogenesis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). Silencing UCH-L1 suppressed tubule formation in HUVECs, indicating t...
