Derivatives of this molecule may therefore prove to be useful chemotherapeutic agents. In this study, we explored whether glycosylation increases the cytotoxic potency of lapachol towards HL-60 human leukemia cells. Two beta-glycosides were synthesized and characterized: LA4A (lapachol-β-glucoside) and LA4C (lapachol-N-acetylglucosamine-β-glucoside). The sugar moieties of both novel molecules were per-acetylated to facilitate cellular uptake. The IC50 values (in μM) for LA4A (5.7) and LA4C (5.3) were lower than those for lapachol (25). LA4A and LA4C triggered typical signs of apoptosis, such as the exposure of phosphatidylserine on the outside of cells, chromatin condensation, DNA fragmentation and a decrease of the mitochondrial transmembrane potential (ΔΨm) prior to cell lysis. Moreover, DNA fragmentation triggered by the lapachol-glycosides was reduced by pre-treatment with the caspase inhibitor, z-VAD-fmk. While LA4A and LA4C activated caspases-3 and -9, lapachol failed to activate these apoptotic proteases, even when used at high concentrations. Finally, the toxicity of lapachol and its derivatives was also tested on non-tumor cells. We used human peripheral neurons (PeriTox test) to evaluate the side effect potential of these compounds. LA4C was clearly less toxic than LA4A. We conclude that LA4C had the most favorable profile as drug candidate (high tumor cell toxicity, reduced neurotoxicity). In general, this study shows that the cytotoxicity of lapachol towards HL-60 can be enhanced by glycosylation, and that the therapeutic ratio may be modified by the type of sugar added.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-01-20T12:38:10Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>de Sousa, Fernanda S.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>de Sousa, Fernanda S.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Leist, Marcel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Weinlich, Ricardo</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Kisitu, Jaffar</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Marques, Lucas Bonfim</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Xavier Pinto, Mauro Cunha</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>de Souza-Fagundes, Elaine Maria</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Lapachol acetylglycosylation enhances its cytotoxic and pro-apoptotic activities in HL60 cells</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Holzer, Anna-Katharina</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>de Souza-Fagundes, Elaine Maria</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Holzer, Anna-Katharina</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Weinlich, Ricardo</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Kisitu, Jaffar</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Xavier Pinto, Mauro Cunha</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Ottoni, Flaviano Melo</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Marques, Lucas Bonfim</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Ribeiro, Juliana Martins</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
