Description
Tetrodotoxin, frequently abbreviated as TTX, is a potent neurotoxin. Its name derives from Tetraodontiformes, an order that includes pufferfish, porcupinefish, ocean sunfish or mola, and triggerfish; several species that carry the toxin. Although tetrodotoxin was discovered in these fish and found in several other animals (e.g., blue-ringed octopus, rough-skinned newt, and Naticidae) it is actually produced by certain symbiotic bacteria, such as Pseudoalteromonas tetraodonis, certain species of Pseudomonas and Vibrio, as well as some others that reside within these animals. Tetrodotoxin inhibits the firing of action potentials in nerves by binding to the voltage-gated sodium channels in nerve cell membranes and blocking the passage of sodium ions (responsible for the rising phase of an action potential) into the nerve cell.

Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is one of the most important natural toxins being encountered especially in Japan. It is the primary toxin in puffer fish poisoning, acting as a powerful and specific voltage-gated sodium channel blocker. Many analogs of TTX, such as 4-epiTTX, 4,9-anhydroTTX, 11-norTTX-6(S)-ol, 11-norTTX-6(R)-ol, 5-deoxyTTX, 11-deoxyTTX, 6,11-dideoxyTTX, 5,6,11-trideoxyTTX, 4-cysteinylTTX, 11-oxoTTX, and tetrodonic acid have been found in puffer fish. Among them, 5,6,11-trideoxyTTX, 4-epiTTX, and 4,9-anhydroTTX, the latter two of which are chemically interchangeable with TTX, are the major analogs of TTX (Fig. 1). The LD50 (50% lethal dose, mice, intraperitoneal injection) of TTX was determined to be 10 lg/kg, and we previously reported that the dissociation constants (Ko) for the interactions of TTX, 4-epiTTX, 4,9-anhydroTTX, and 5,6,11-trideoxyTTX with the rat synapse membrane were 1.8, 68, 180, and [5000 nM, respectively.

Mammalian sodium channels form a family of proteins with differential tissue distributions and pharmacological properties. Nine sodium channel pore-forming alpha subunits genes have been identified thus far, denominated NaV1.1–NaV1.9 (Catterall et al. 2003). The muscle isoforms, NaV1.4 and NaV1.5, are expressed in skeletal and cardiac myocytes, respectively. Splice variants of NaV1.5 are also expressed in the brain (Wang et al. 2009). The remaining isoforms are expressed predominantly in the central nervous system (NaV1.1, NaV1.2, NaV1.3, NaV1.6), peripheral nervous system (NaV1.7, NaV1.8), or both (NaV1.9). Sodium channels can also be classified based on their sensitivity to tetrodotoxin (TTX). Channels formed by NaV1.1, NaV1.2, NaV1.3, NaV1.4, NaV1.6, NaV1.7 alpha subunits are blocked by nanomolar concentrations of tetrodotoxin and are therefore considered TTX-sensitive (TTX-S). The remaining isoforms (NaV1.5, NaV1.8, NaV1.9) require micromolar tetrodotoxin for blockade and are therefore considered TTX-resistant (TTX-R).
3. Synthesis of crambescin B carboxylic acid, a potent inhibitor of voltage-gated sodium channels
Atsuo Nakazaki, Yuki Ishikawa, Yusuke Sawayama, Mari Yotsu-Yamashitab and Toshio Nishikawa*. Org. Biomol. Chem.,2014, 12,53–56
Considerable attention is currently devoted to the synthesis and properties of guanidine-containing natural products. Well-known examples of such compounds include tetrodotoxin and saxitoxin isolated as toxic principles of pufferfish intoxication and paralytic shellfish poison, respectively. These compounds exhibit potent blockage of sodium ion influx through voltage-gated sodium channels. Recently, we have focused on developing a subtype selective blocker of the sodium channels on the basis of natural products such as tetrodotoxin3 and saxitoxin. In this context, we were intrigued by the biological activities of carboxylic acid 2 of an alkaloid crambescin B isolated from the marine sponge Crambe crambe (Fig. 1), because of the similar zwitterion structure to tetrodotoxin; the spatial position of the guanidinium and carboxylate is similar to the guanidinium and orthoacid in tetrodotoxin (Fig. 2). Investigation of the biological activity of 2 has remained unexplored because crambescin B carboxylic acid 2 has not been isolated from natural sources and degradation of natural 1 into 2 has not been reported. Racemic synthesis of the twelve-carbon-chain homologue of carboxylic acid 2 has been reported by Snider et al.
4. Asymmetric synthesis of crambescin A–C carboxylic acids and their inhibitory activity on voltage-gated sodium channels
Atsuo Nakazaki, Yoshiki Nakane, Yuki Ishikawa, Mari Yotsu-Yamashitab and Toshio Nishikawa*. Org. Biomol. Chem.,2016, 14, 5304–5309
We investigated inhibitory activities on VGSCs of the six analogues, crambescin carboxylic acids 1a, 2 and 3 and crambescin B analogues 17, (+)-23 and (+)-24, by the cytotoxicity of ouabain and veratridine to mouse neuroblastoma cells (Neuro-2a), similar to the manner in which we previouslyestimated the activity of tetrodotoxin and its analogues (Table 1). Our previous studies demonstrated that racemic crambescin B carboxylic acid (±)-2 inhibited VGSCs with an EC50 value of 42 ± 25 nM, which was nine-fold larger than thatof tetrodotoxin (EC50 = 4.8 ± 2.6 nM). This study revealed that the natural dextro isomer was more potent than that of its enantiomer [(+)-2: 5.3 ± 2.2 nM vs. (−)-2: 79 ± 40 nM]. Moreover, this trend was also observed in all cases of crambescin A carboxylic acid 1a, crambescin C carboxylic acid 3 and decarboxylate 17; the EC50 for the natural dextro isomers was found to be more potent than those of each antipode.
