AB  - In this study, thein vivohypoglycemic effect of a donut-shaped polyanion salt (NH4)14[Na@P5W30O110]$31H2O{NaP5W30} and its Ag-containing derivative K14[Ag@P5W30O110]$22H2O$6KCl {AgP5W30}, as wellas their hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity, was evaluated. In the screening hypoglycemic study,Wistaralbinorats with streptozotocin induced diabetes were treated intraperitoneally with three single doses (5,10, and 20 mg per kg per b.w.) of both investigated polyoxotungstates. The blood glucose levels,measured before and after 2, 4 and 6 h polyoxotungstate application, showed that both studiedcompounds induced the most pronounced and time dependent glucose lowering effects at the doses of20 mg kg1. Thus, daily doses of 20 mg kg1were administered toWistar albinorats orally for 14 days infurther toxicity examinations. The serum glucose concentration and biochemical parameters of kidneyand liver function, as well as a histopathological analysis of kidney and liver tissues were evaluated 14days after the polyoxotungstate administration. Both investigated compounds did not induce statisticallysignificant alterations of the serum glucose and uric acid concentrations, as well as some of the liverfunction markers (serum alanine and aspartate aminotransferases, and alkaline phosphatase activities).However, the significant decrease in serum total protein and albumin concentrations and the increase inbiochemical parameters of renal function–serum urea (up to 63.1%) and creatinine concentrations (upto 23.3%) were observed for both polyoxotungstates. In addition, the detected biochemical changeswere in accordance with kidney and liver histhopathological analysis. Accordingly, the hepatotoxic andnephrotoxic effects of these potential antidiabetic polyoxotungstates could be considered as mild.

AB  - We investigated the therapeutic capacity of nano-sized graphene sheets, called graphene quantum dots (GQD), in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of immune-mediated central nervous system (CNS) damage. Intraperitoneally administered GQD (10 mg/kg/day) accumulated in the lymph node and CNS cells of Dark Agouti rats in which EAE was induced by immunization with spinal cord homogenate in complete Freund's adjuvant. GQD significantly reduced clinical signs of EAE when applied throughout the course of the disease (day 0–32), while the protection was less pronounced if the treatment was limited to the induction (day 0–7 post-immunization) or effector (from day 8 onwards) phase of the disease. GQD treatment diminished immune infiltration, demyelination, axonal damage, and apoptotic death in the CNS of EAE animals. GQD also reduced the numbers of interferon-γ-expressing T helper (Th)1 cells, as well as the expression of Th1 transcription factor T-bet and proinflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-1, and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor in the lymph nodes and CNS immune infitrates. The protective effect of GQD in EAE was associated with the activation of p38 and p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) and Akt in the lymph nodes and/or CNS. Finally, GQD protected oligodendrocytes and neurons from T cell-mediated damage in the in vitro conditions. Collectively, these data demonstrate the ability of GQD to gain access to both immune and CNS cells during neuroinflammation, and to alleviate immune-mediated CNS damage by modulating MAPK/Akt signaling and encephalitogenic Th1 immune response. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Graphene quantum dots (GQD) are atom-thick nanodimensional carbon, very attractive for the application in theranostics due to their excellent physico-chemical and biological properties. However, their immunoregulatory properties are insufficiently investigated, especially for human immune cells. We found that non-toxic doses of GQD inhibit the production of proinflammatory and T helper (Th)1 cytokines, and augment the production of anti-inflammatory and Th2 cytokines by human peripheral blood  mononuclear cells. While unable to affect purified T cells directly, GQD impaired the differentiation and functions of monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC), lowering  their capacity to stimulate T cell proliferation, development of Th1 and Th17 cells, and T-cell mediated cytotoxicity. Additionally, GQD-treated DC potentiated Th2  polarization, and induced suppressive CD4+CD25hiFoxp3hi regulatory T cells. After internalization in a dynamin-independent, cholesterol-dependent manner, GQD lowered the ROS generation and nuclear translocation of NF-B in DC. The activity of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) was reduced by GQD, which correlated with the increase in transcription of autophagy genes and autophagic flux in DC. Genetic suppression of autophagy impaired the pro-tolerogenic effects of GQD on DC. Our results suggest that GQD-triggered autophagy promotes tolerogenic functions in monocyte-derived DC, which could be beneficial in inflammatory T-cell mediated pathologies, but also harmful in GQD-based anti-cancer therapy.

AB  - Graphene quantum dots (GQD) are atom-thick nanodimensional carbon sheets with excellent physicochemical and biological properties; making them attractive for application in theranostics: However, their immunoregulatory properties are insufficiently investigated, especially in human primary immune cells. We found that non-toxic doses of GQD inhibit the production of proinflammatory and T helper (Th) 1 cytokines, and augment the production of anti-inflammatory and Th2 cytokines by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. While unable to affect T cells directly, GQD impaired the differentiation and functions of monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC), lowering their capacity to stimulate T cell proliferation, development of Thl and Th17 cells, and T-cell mediated cytotoxicity. Additionally, GQD-treated DC potentiated Th2 polarization, and induced suppressive CD4(+)CD25(high)Foxp3(+) regulatory T cells. After internalization in a dynamin-independent, cholesterol-dependent manner, GQD lowered the production of reactive oxygen species and nuclear translocation of NF-kappa B in DC. The activity of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) was reduced by GQD, which correlated with the increase in transcription of autophagy genes and autophagic flux in DC. Genetic suppression of autophagy impaired the pro-tolerogenic effects of GQD on DC. Our results suggest that GQD-triggered autophagy promotes tolerogenic functions in monocyte-derived DC, which could be beneficial in inflammatory T-cell mediated pathologies, but also harmful in GQD-based anti-cancer therapy.

AB  - A toxicity evaluation of two Keggin-type heteropolytungstates, K-7[Ti2PW10O40].6H(2)O and K6H [SiV3W9O40].3H(2)O, with different inhibitory potencies toward acetylcholinesterase activity (IC50 values of 1.04 x 10(-6) and 4.80 x 10(-4) mol/L, respectively) was performed. Wistar albino rats were orally treated with single doses (5 and 50 mg/kg) of both investigated compounds. The biochemical parameters of renal (serum urea and creatinine) and liver function (direct and total bilirubin, alanine transaminase, and aspartate aminotransferase) were determined after 24 h and 14 days. A histopathological analysis of liver tissue was carried out 14 days after the polyoxotungstate administration. Both applied doses of the investigated compounds did not induce statistically significant alterations of the renal function markers. However, the polyoxotungstate treatment caused an increase in the activities of serum alanine transaminase and aspartate aminotransferase in a time- and concentration -dependent manner, although statistically significant changes in bilirubin concentrations were not observed. Furthermore, the detected hepatotoxic effect was confirmed by histhopathological analysis that suggested some reversible liver tissue damage two weeks after the treatment, especially in the case of K6H [SiV3W9O40]-3H(2)O. Accordingly, the toxicity of these two polyoxotungstates with anti-acetylcholinesterase effect cannot be considered as a severe one, but their potential clinical application would require a more complex toxicological study.

AB  - Indian spice curcumin is known for its anticancer properties, but the anticancer mechanisms of nanoparticulate curcumin have not been completely elucidated. We here investigated the in vitro anticancer effect of blue light (470 nm, 1 W)-irradiated curcumin nanoparticles prepared by tetrahydrofuran/water solvent exchange, using U251 glioma, B16 melanoma, and H460 lung cancer cells as targets. The size of curcumin nanocrystals was approximately 250 nm, while photoexcitation induced their oxidation and partial agglomeration. Although cell membrane in the absence of light was almost impermeable to curcumin nanoparticles, photoexcitation stimulated their internalization. While irradiation with blue light (1-8 min) or nanocurcumin (1.25-10 mu g/ml) alone was only marginally toxic to tumor cells, photoexcited nanocurcumin displayed a significant cytotoxicity depending both on the irradiation time and nanocurcumin concentration. Photoexcited nanocurcumin induced phosphorylation of cJun N-terminal kinase (JNK), mitochondrial depolarization, caspase-3 activation, and cleavage of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase, indicating apoptotic cell death. Accordingly, pharmacologial inhibition of JNK and caspase activity rescued cancer cells from photoexcited nanocurcumin. On the other hand, antioxidant treatment did not reduce photocytotoxicity of nanocurcumin, arguing against the involvement of oxidative stress. By demonstrating the ability of photoexcited nanocurcumin to induce oxidative-stress independent, JNK-and caspase-dependent apoptosis, our results support its further investigation in cancer therapy.

AB  - We investigated the effect of large (40 nm) graphene quantum dots (GQDs) in concanavalin A (Con A; 12 mg/kg i.v.)-induced mouse hepatitis, a T cell-mediated liver injury resembling fulminant hepatitis in humans. Intravenously injected GQDs (50 mg/kg) accumulated in liver and reduced Con A-mediated liver damage, as demonstrated by histopathological analysis and a decrease in liver lipid peroxidation and serum levels of liver transaminases. The cleavage of apoptotic markers caspase-3/PARP and mRNA levels of proapoptotic mediators Puma, Noxa, Bax, Bak1, Bim, Apaf1, and p21, as well as LC3-I conversion to autophagosome-associated LC3-II and expression of autophagy-related (Atg) genes Atg4b, Atg7, Atg12, and beclin-1, were attenuated by GQDs, indicating a decrease in both apoptosis and autophagy in the liver tissue. This was associated with the reduced liver infiltration of immune cells, particularly the T cells producing proinflammatory cytokine IFN-?, and a decrease in IFN-gamma serum levels. In the spleen of GQD-exposed mice, mRNA expression of IFN-? and its transcription factor T-bet was reduced, while that of the IL-33 ligand ST2 was increased. The hepatoprotective effect of GQDs was less pronounced in ST2-deficient mice, indicating that it might depend on ST2 upregulation. In vitro, GQDs inhibited splenocyte IFN-gamma production, reduced the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase in macrophage and T cell lines, inhibited macrophage production of the free radical nitric oxide, and reduced its cytotoxicity toward hepatocyte cell line HepG2. Therefore, GQDs alleviate immune-mediated fulminant hepatitis by interfering with T cell and macrophage activation and possibly by exerting a direct hepatoprotective effect.

AB  - The excellent photoluminescent properties of graphene quantum dots (GQD) makes them suitable candidates for biomedical applications, but their cytotoxicity has not been extensively studied. Here we show that electrochemically produced GQD irradiated with blue light (470 nm, 1 W) generate reactive oxygen species, including singlet oxygen, and kill U251 human glioma cells by causing oxidative stress. The cell death induced by photoexcited GQD displayed morphological and/or biochemical characteristics of both apoptosis (phosphatidylserine externalization, caspase activation. DNA fragmentation) and autophagy (formation of autophagic vesicles, LC3-I/LC3-II conversion, degradation of autophagic target p62). Moreover, a genetic inactivation of autophagy-essential LOB protein partly abrogated the photodynamic cytotoxicity of GQD. These data indicate potential usefulness of GQD in photodynamic therapy, but also raise concerns about their possible toxicity. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

AB  - In the present study, we report that compound C, an inhibitor of a key intracellular energy sensor AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), can induce autophagy in cancer cells. The induction of autophagy in U251 human glioma cell line was demonstrated by acridine orange staining of intracellular acidic vesicles, Beclin 1 induction, p62 decrease and conversion of LC3-I to autophagosome-associated LC3-II in the presence of proteolysis inhibitors. The presence of autophagosome-like vesicles was confirmed by transmission electron microscopy. Compound C-mediated inhibition of AMPK and raptor in U251 cells was associated with paradoxical decrease in phosphorylation of AMPK/raptor-repressed mTOR, a major negative regulator of autophagy, and its downstream target p70S6K. The phosphorylation of an mTOR activator Akt and the PI3K-activating kinase Src was also impaired in compound C-treated cells. The siRNA-mediated AMPK silencing did not reduce the activity of the Akt/mTOR/p70S6K pathway and AMPK activators metformin and AICAR failed to block compound C-induced autophagy. Autophagy inhibitors bafilomycin and chloroquine significantly increased the cytotoxicity of compound C towards U251 cells, as confirmed by increase in lactate dehydrogenase release, DNA fragmentation and caspase-3 activation. Similar effects of compound C were also observed in C6 rat glioma, L929 mouse fibrosarcoma and B16 mouse melanoma cell lines. Since compound C has previously been reported to suppress AMPK-dependent autophagy in different cell types, our findings suggest that the effects of compound C on autophagy might be dose-, cell type- and/or context-dependent. By demonstrating the ability of compound C to induce autophagic response in cancer cells via AMPK inhibition-independent downregulation of Akt/mTOR pathway, our results warrant caution when using compound C to inhibit AMPK-dependent cellular responses, but also support further exploration of compound C and related molecules as potential anticancer agents.
