Metabolism of flubendazole in human liver subcellular fractions
Holubová, Jana ; Skálová, Lenka (advisor) ; Vokřál, Ivan (referee)
Charles University Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové Department of Biochemical Sciences Candidate: Jana Holubová Supervisor: prof. RNDr. Lenka Skálová, Ph.D. Title of diploma thesis: Metabolism of flubendazole in human liver subcellular fractions Flubendazole (FLU), a benzimidazole anthelmintic drug with a broad spectrum of activity and low toxicity has been used in veterinary as well as human medicine for a long time. Owing its mechanism of action, based on the specific binding to tubulin, FLU is now considered a promising anti-cancer agent. However, we do not have enough information about its biotransformation in human. In our project, subcellular fractions from the liver of 12 human patients (6 males and 6 females) were used to study the stereospecificity, cellular localization, coenzyme preference and possible inter-individual or sex differences in FLU reduction. In addition, the risk of FLU interaction with other drugs was evaluated. Results showed that FLU is predominantly reduced in cytosol and the NADPH coenzyme is preferred. The strict stereospecificity of FLU carbonyl reduction was proven and carbonyl reductase 1 was identified as the main enzyme of FLU reduction in the human liver. A higher reduction of FLU and a higher level of carbonyl reductase 1 protein was found in males than in...
Preparation and study of novel crystalline materials for nonlinear optics based on nitrogen-containing heterocycles

The presented Ph.D. thesis is aimed at the preparation and characterisation of novel crystalline materials with application potential in nonlinear optics (NLO). The main goal was preparation of crystalline salts and adducts (cocrystals) of selected nitrogen-containing heterocycles with a range of organic and inorganic acids. Based on previous study and quantum- chemical calculations, the following starting heterocycles were selected: 2-aminopyrimidine, 4-aminopyrimidine, 5-aminopyrimidine, 3-amino-1,2,4-triazine and 3-amino-5,6-dimethyl- 1,2,4-triazine. The prepared materials were characterised mainly by X-ray diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy and the interpretation of the vibrational spectra was based on quantum-chemical calculations. The systems based on aminopyrimidines were the first field of study in presented thesis. The thesis represents a finalisation of our previous study focused on inorganic salts and cocrystal in the case of 2-aminopyrimidine. The characterisation of a pair of cocrystals with boric acid was accomplished. The 12 new salts and adducts were prepared and characterised in the case of 4-aminopyrimidine and only one crystalline product - adduct with succinic acid - was obtained in the case of 5-aminopyrimidine. The systems based on 3-amino-1,2,4-triazine and its...
