1.Determination of lucidin-specific DNA adducts by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry in the livers and kidneys of rats given lucidin-3-O-primeveroside.
Ishii Y1, Inoue K, Takasu S, Jin M, Matsushita K, Kuroda K, Fukuhara K, Nishikawa A, Umemura T. Chem Res Toxicol. 2012 May 21;25(5):1112-8. doi: 10.1021/tx300084p. Epub 2012 Apr 30.
Lucidin-3-O-primeveroside (LuP) is a component of madder color (MC), a compound which is carcinogenic in the kidney and liver of rats. Since LuP is metabolized to generate genotoxic compounds such as lucidin (Luc) and rubiadin, it is likely that these play key roles in MC carcinogenesis. In fact, after incubation of Luc with calf thymus DNA, Luc-N(2)-dG and N(6)-dA adducts were reportedly formed, possibly via the sulfotransferase metabolic pathway. However, the precise extent of formation in vivo remains uncertain. In the present study, to quantitatively determine Luc-specific DNA adducts in in vivo samples, we developed an online sample purification method using column-switching and an isotope dilution LC-ESI-MS/MS technique. The limits of quantification were 0.2 and 0.04 fmol on column for Luc-N(2)-dG and N(6)-dA adducts, respectively. Using the new analytical method, we attempted to measure adduct levels in the kidneys and livers of rats treated with 0.

3.Synthesis and polymerase-mediated bypass studies of the N2-deoxyguanosine DNA damage caused by a lucidin analogue.

Lucidin is a genotoxic and mutagenic hydroxyanthraquinone metabolite, which originates from the roots of Rubia tinctorum L. (madder root). It reacts with exocyclic amino groups of DNA nucleobases and forms adducts/lesions leading to carcinogenesis. To study the effect of lucidin-induced DNA damage, herein, we report the first synthesis of a structural analogue of lucidin [N(2)-methyl-(1,3-dimethoxyanthraquinone)-deoxyguanosine, LdG] embedded DNAs utilizing phosphoramidite strategy. LdG modification in a DNA duplex imparts destabilization (ΔTm ∼5 °C/modification), which is attributed to the unfavorable contribution from the enthalpy. Primer extension studies using the Klenow fragment (exo(-)) of Escherichia coli DNA polymerase I demonstrate that bypass of LdG modification is error prone as well as slow compared to that across the unmodified sites. Molecular dynamics simulations of the binary complex of Bacillus fragment polymerase (homologue of the Klenow fragment) and LdG-DNA duplex elucidate the structural fluctuations imparted by the LdG lesion, as well as the molecular mechanism of bypass at the lesion site.
4.Anthraquinone Content in Noni (Morinda citrifolia L.).
Bussmann RW1, Hennig L, Giannis A, Ortwein J, Kutchan TM, Feng X. Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2013;2013:208378. doi: 10.1155/2013/208378. Epub 2013 Aug 26.
Noni has been used in traditional medicine and as food for thousands of years. While the fruits serve as food and internal medicine, leaves were traditionally used only topically. In recent years, concern regarding the possible content of anthraquinones in noni has led to scrutiny by the European Food Safety Authority. Little research existed on the content of anthraquinones in different noni preparations, with no information about the potential effect of harvest and preparation methods. Our research focused on lucidin, alizarin, and rubiadin, the most important anthraquinones from a health perspective. We found that the production process (fermentation/juice production versus drying/lyophilization) has no effect on the anthraquinone content. The source product, however, does have implications: noni fruit puree from which seeds had been removed as well as consumer products produced from such puree had no detectable amounts of any anthraquinones.
