AB  - Photodynamic therapy implies a combined use of a photosensitizing medicament and low-intensity light to cause selective damage to the target tissue—tumor. As potential medicament, we use Ru(II)(dcbpy)2Cl2complex, and in order to achieve better photosensitization properties, the Ru complex was attached to the nano carrier—TiO2nanoparticles. Additionally, this nanocomposite system was encapsulated in the phospholipid vesicles, which could be classified as small unilamellar vesicles, based on the technique of production. The complex-release tests were performed under light illumination, at pH 5, characteristic for tumor cells` interior and compared with the release pattern at pH 7, characteristic for the serum, i.e. physiological solution.

AB  - We studied the colloidal TiO2 nanoparticles as a carrier for controlled delivery of the ruthenium complex to the melanoma cell line. The system demonstrated slower complex release upon visible and increased release rate upon UV light illumination. Accordingly, the light-dependent cytotoxicity of the system was demonstrated on amelanotic melanoma cancer line. The cell death is enhanced by UV and reduced by red light in the presence of investigated nanocomposite system. Both components of the system may act as photosensitizers, by generating reactive oxygen species, which promote cell death. Thus, the system might act dually, as photodynamic therapeutic agent and as the light tunable system for metallo-drug delivery and it might be of interest for development of new more efficient drug delivery approaches by using a light as external stimulus.

AB  - The paper presents chemical and structural analysis of geopolymer materials which are obtained by alkali-activated calcined clay (metakaolin) originated from Serbia under strictly defined conditions. Characterization of the metakaolin and geopolymers molecular structure has been done using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The paper presents the possibility of obtaining geopolymer structure and differences in chemical and structural characterization of these materials taking into account the concentration of NaOH as a variable parameter. The results of MALDI analysis of metakaolin and synthesized geopolymer structures using various matrix system: 2,4,6 trihydroxyacetophenone (THAP), alpha-cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic, 2,6 dihydroxyacetophenone and laser desorption/ionization, have shown that THAP matrix is the most appropriate for analysing these aluminosilicate materials.

AB  - Photo-responsive drug release systems are promising for drug delivery applications due to many benefits compared to conventional chemotherapy such as targeted, controlled release of a drug and reduced toxicity to healthy tissues. In this work, we report synthesis of the nanocomposite system based on carrier TiO2 nanoparticles and potential anticancer ruthenium complex, with light controllable release properties. Nanocomposite system showed biological activity and induced the generation of free radicals, which are implied in the efficient cell killing. The drug release tests demonstrated sustained release of the transition metal complex from the surface implying the potency for the controlled drug delivery system. Taking into account photoactivity of the Ru-complex, in the next step we have investigated the influence of green light on the rate of the complex release, and the results showed dependence of the Ru-complex release from the surface of TiO2 nanoparticles on the applied laser energy. Therefore, these characteristics make this nanocomposite system promising for the photo-responsive chemotherapy.

AB  - Titanium dioxide is widely used substrate for laser desorption and ionization [(SA)LDI] mass spectrometry. As the semiconductor with high UV absorbance and rapid energy transfer to analytes, TiO2 provides soft and efficient desorption/ionization of analytes with relatively low degrees of fragmentation in the gas phase. TiO2 nanocrystals are convenient for small molecules (molecular mass LT 1000 Da) analysis due to low number of background signals. Desorption/ionization processes on TiO2 nanocrystals are related to the physical properties of the substrate, such as the ability to absorb and dissipate energy from the irradiating laser light source. In addition, size and shape of nanocrystals also affect these abilities. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of shape and size dependant TiO2 nanocrystals/UV laser interaction on the quality of the mass spectra, detectability of analyzed molecules, intensities of the signals and homogeneity of co-crystals onto the MALDI plate, of carbohydrates. It is shown that the size and shape of nanocrystals influenced the way of packing carbohydrates onto plate, and thus affects homogeneity and reproducibility of mass spectrometry analysis.

AB  - Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SALDI-TOF-MS) might be the method of choice for the analysis of low mass molecules (less than m/z 500). Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanocrystals as a substrate for SALDI-TOF-MS improve the reproducibility of the signal intensities and prevent the fragmentation of some molecules upon laser irradiation, as we have previously shown. In addition, variously shaped and sized TiO2 nanocrystals/substrates for SALDI-MS could be used for quantification of small molecules, which are otherwise difficult to detect with the assistance of organic matrices. TiO2-assisted LDI-MS spectra could be acquired with excellent reproducibility and repeatability and with low detection limit. In the current study, we analysed the spectra of dexasone, citric acid, vitamin E and vitamin A acquired with TiO2 nanocrystals of various shapes and dimensions, i.e. the colloidal TiO2 nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs), TiO2 prolate nanospheroids (TiO2 PNSs) and TiO2 nanotubes (TiO2 NTs). Various shapes and dimensions of substrates were used since these factors determine desorption and ionisation processes. The homogeneity on the target plate was compared based on signal-to-noise values of peaks of interest of analysed molecules as well as the within-day and day-to-day repeatability. In summary, the obtained results show that the applicability of individual TiO2 nanocrystals depends on the analyte. Signals which are acquired with the assistance of TiO2 PNSs have the highest sensitivity and reproducibility (the smallest standard deviation), even compared with those in the LDI mode. This implies that TiO2 PNSs could also be suitable for quantitative analyses of small molecules.

The interaction of ruthenium complexes with transport proteins, enzymes and peptides is of great importance for understanding their biodistribution and mechanism of action, therefore, the development of an anti-cancer therapy involving ruthenium complexes has recently shifted from DNA targeting towards protein targeting. With the aim of gaining insight into possible interactions between ruthenium complexes with biologically relevant proteins, we have studied the interaction of cis-dichlorobis(2,2-bipyridyl-4,4-dicarboxylic acid)ruthenium(II) complex [Ru(II)(dcbpy)(2)Cl-2], which previously showed good potency in photo-dynamic chemotherapy, with bovine serum albumin (BSA), phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) and glutathione (GSH). Binding constants and possible number of binding sites to mentioned proteins and peptide are investigated by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Mass Spectrometry (MALDI TOF MS). The complex binding affinities were in the following order: PLA(2) GT BSA GT GSH. Moreover, genotoxic profile of the complex, tested on peripheral blood lymphocytes as a model system, was also promising.

AB  - Nanostructured materials as substrates for surface-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry have two main advantages such as small number of signals in the low mass range and salt tolerance. We have also previously observed decreased extent of undesired fragmentation of bipyridine-containing transition metal complexes in the presence of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs). In this work, we extended our previous study and tested whether both TiO2 NPs and TiO2 prolate nanospheroids (PNSs) can be used as substrates for SALDI-MS of bipyridine-containing transition metal complexes and whether they tolerate intense laser and the presence of inorganic salts. TiO2 NPs (an average diameter of 5 nm) and PNSs (length: 40-50 nm, the lateral dimension: 14-16 nm) were characterized microscopically and their mass spectra were analyzed, as well as the spectra of bipyridine-containing Pt(II) and Ru(III) complexes. Our results show that seven times higher analyte signals can be obtained in the presence of PNSs compared to the signals acquired with NPs and three times higher compared to spectra acquired without a substrate. The presence of inorganic salt did not affect the spectra, which makes both TiO2 nanocrystals suitable for MS analysis of transition metal complexes in biological fluids. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V.
