Abstract: Advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) can promote intracellular reactive oxygen species production, and the levels of AGEs are highly correlated with cardiovascular disease and diabetes complications. Acetohydroxamic acid (acetH) is a bacterial urease inhibitor drug used to treat kidney stones and infections in the urinary tract, and hydroxyurea (HU) is a drug used for antineoplasm and sickle cell diseases. Both acetH and HU are hydroxamic acid derivatives. It was found that acetH and HU at 2.5 or 5 mM showed anti-AGE formation by lowering the AGEs’ fluorescent intensities and Nε-(carboxymethyl)lysine formation in bovine serum albumin/galactose models, and both showed better and significant differences (P<0.05) compared to the positive control of aminoguanidine. Regarding radical scavenging activities, the half-inhibition concentrations (IC50) of acetH against α,α-diphenyl-β-picrylhydrazyl radical and hydroxyl radical were 34.86 and 104.42 µM, respectively. The IC50 of acetH against semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase was 10.56 µM, and acetH showed noncompetitive inhibition respective to the substrates (benzylamine). The antiglycation, antioxidant, and semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase inhibitory activities of acetH prove that it has the potential for treating cardiovascular disease and diabetes complications and it needs further investigation in animal models.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as radicals of superoxide anion radicals (O2·−) and hydroxyl radicals (OH·) and nonradicals of lipid peroxides (LOOH) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), are associated with normal aging, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.1,2 The UV radiation may increase the intracellular ROS levels resulting in more production than elimination, which may lead to oxidative stress in cells.3 The intracellular ROS is the byproduct of energy production from the electron transfer chain in the mitochondria or the product of enzymatic reaction (of enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, xanthine oxidase, and amine oxidase). There are many proposed theories to explain the aging process, among which the “free radical theory of aging” focuses on the roles of ROS and related scavenging systems in the cells during the aging process.1,4
The Maillard reaction refers to a complex set of chemical reactions between monosaccharides and proteins that occur via nucleophilic attacks, leading to the Schiff base formation, which slowly rearranges to generate Amadori products and advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in the final stages.5–7 The AGEs can bind receptors for AGEs to promote intracellular ROS production.8 Hemoglobin A1c, a well-known nonenzymatic glycation product, is a clinical index for diabetes mellitus, in which the N-terminal amino group of valine is glycated in the hemoglobin β chain. Many AGEs, such as Nε-(carboxymethyl)lysine (CML), have been structurally characterized.5,7 The formation and accumulation of AGEs are reported to correlate with cardiovascular disease, ocular diseases, and diabetes complications (such as renal diseases or diabetic dyslipidemia).9–12 Several AGE inhibitors are used to delay or inhibit the formation of AGEs. These include guanidine compounds of aminoguanidine (AG) and metformin, which have the capacity to react against Amadori carbonyl compounds, as well as dicarbonyl compounds, which have the capacity to react against protein glycation.11
The amine oxidases (AOs) catalyze conversion of several primary amines into the corresponding toxic aldehydes, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia, which may increase the level of intrinsic ROS in the cells. AOs have been divided into two categories. The first is flavin adenine dinucleotide–containing AOs, such as monoamine oxidase A, monoamine oxidase B, and polyamine oxidase; the second is copper-containing semicarbazide-sensitive AOs (SSAO), such as diamine oxidase, soluble AO, and lysyl oxidase.13 High levels of plasma SSAO in diabetes mellitus, endothelial damage, and kidney disease have been reported.13–15
The chemicals or drugs with hydroxamic acid moiety (R-CONHOH) have been reviewed for biologic and pharmacologic activities in different diseases.16 Acetohydroxamic acid (acetH, CH3CONHOH) is the active drug in Lithostat®, which is used to treat urinary tract infections.17 Hydroxyurea (HU, NH2CONHOH), or hydroxycarbamide, is a drug (Hydrea®, Droxia™, or Mylocel™) used to treat antineoplasm or sickle cell diseases.18 AcetH and HU are both hydroxamic acid derivatives. In this study, acetH and HU were used to investigate the effects on antiglycation in bovine serum albumin (BSA)/galactose (Gal) models. AcetH was further used to determine the radical scavenging and SSAO inhibitory activities. It is suggested that the antiglycation, antioxidant, and SSAO inhibitory activities of acetH may have potential for treating diabetes complications, but further investigation is needed.

Effects of acetH, HU, or AG on anti-protein glycations in BSA/Gal models
Determination of glycated BSA fluorescence
The BSA/Gal model was used to perform a protein glycation experiment by following the reported methods.19,20 One hundred microliters of the solution in the Eppendorf tube contained 20 μL of BSA solution (2 mg/mL), 60 μL of 1 M Gal solution (in distilled water), 10 μL of 10-fold diluted PBS, and 10 μL of acetH, HU, or AG (2.5 or 5 mM in the final concentration) in 10-fold diluted PBS. Each Eppendorf tube was placed in a 37°C water bath in order to perform a nonenzymatic glycation process for 10 or 14 days. BSA-only was the blank and BSA/Gal was the control. The changes in glycated BSA fluorescence with or without the tested compound were determined using the VICTOR™ X3 Multilabel Plate Reader (Perkin Elmer Inc., Waltham, MA, USA) at the excitation and emission wavelengths of 355 and 460 nm, respectively.
The CML formations determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) procedure was done following the previous report.19 The glycated BSA solution (5 or 10 μL) in a total of 100 μL solution was coated onto a 96-well microtiter plate (type F; Nunc MaxiSorp, Roskilde, Denmark) to quantify CML formations. The absorbance was determined at 450 nm by using an ELISA reader (Sunrise microplate reader; TECAN, Männedorf, Switzerland).
The determination of CML formations in glycated BSA by immune stains
The glycated BSA were separated by 7.5% sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and then the gel was transferred onto polyvinylidene difluoride membrane to detect CML formations by immune stains. Each sample solution was mixed with sample buffer (with 2-mercaptoethanol) in 5-fold dilution and heated at 100°C for 5 min. After electrophoresis, one gel was stained for proteins using Coomassie Brilliant Blue R-250 and the other gel was transferred onto the polyvinylidene difluoride membrane (EMD Millipore, Billerica, MA, USA) following the previous method.21 The anti-CML antibody was diluted to 1,667-fold, and the HRP-conjugated secondary antibody was diluted to 100,000-fold. Immunoblots were stained by using Western Chemiluminescent HRP Substrate kits (WBKL S0050, EMD Millipore). The Syngene GeneGnome5 imaging system (Syngene, Cambridge, UK) was used to image the gel of protein stains and the blot of immune stains of each treatment.
Antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity
DPPH radical scavenging activity
The DPPH radical (60 μM in methanol) was used to test acetH (6, 12, 24, and 60 μM in distilled water) scavenging activity in 100 mM Tris buffer (pH 7.9).21,22 It was placed under light protection at room temperature for 30 min, and the decrease in absorbance at 517 nm was then measured. Deionized water was used instead of the sample solution as a blank experiment. The decrease of absorbance at 517 nm was expressed as ΔA517 nm. The DPPH radical scavenging activity (%) was calculated using the equation (ΔA517blank − ΔA517sample)/ΔA517blank ×100%. The relationships between the calculated DPPH radical scavenging activities and the acetH concentrations used were transformed into a new equation which was used to calculate the acetH concentration for 50% radical scavenging activity (IC50).
Hydroxyl radical scavenging activities
The hydroxyl radical scavenging activities of acetH (10 μM, 20 μM, 500 μM, and 5 mM) were determined by electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrometry.20–22 The mixture in the quartz cell contained acetH, DMPO (5 mM), and ferrous sulfate (0.05 mM); then hydrogen peroxide (0.25 mM) was added in the final step. Distilled water was used instead of acetH solution for the parallel experiment with the blank. The intensities of the DMPO-OH adduct in the blank were expressed as 100%, and other treatments, calculated relative to the blank (%), were expressed as the hydroxyl radical scavenging activity (%). The relationships between calculated hydroxyl radical scavenging activities and the acetH concentrations used were transformed into a new equation which was used to calculate the IC50 for hydroxyl radical scavenging activity.
Determination of SSAO inhibitory activities and kinetic inhibition modes
The commercial bovine plasma product (P-4639, Sigma Chemical Co.) was reported to contain SSAO activities.18,21,22 Therefore, following previous reports,18,21,22 the effects of acetH on SSAO inhibitory activities were investigated. The hydrogen peroxide generated was determined by using 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid)/HRP systems, and the changes in absorbance at 420 nm were recorded during 1 min and expressed as SSAO inhibition (%). The relationships between the calculated SSAO inhibitory activities and the acetH concentrations used were transformed into a new equation which was used to calculate the IC50 for SSAO inhibition. To determine the effects of acetH (6.5 μM) on SSAO kinetic parameters, different concentrations of benzylamine (0.67, 0.8, 1, 1.33, 2, and 4 mM) were used in the Lineweaver–Burk plots.
Data were expressed as mean ± SD. Multiple group comparisons for AGE fluorescence or CML formations were performed using one-way analysis of variance and the post hoc Tukey’s test, and the different alphabets (2.5 mM, uppercase; 5 mM, lowercase) marked in each bar with the same concentration were significantly different (P<0.05).
Results and discussion
Effects of acetH, HU, or AG on anti-protein glycation in BSA/Gal models
The AGEs were formed nonenzymatically between the amino groups of proteins (N-terminal or side chain of amino groups) and the aldehyde groups in sugars and dicarbonyl compounds in vitro and in vivo.5–7 The in vitro reactivity of D-galactose was reported to be 4.7-fold compared to that of D-glucose in hemoglobin glycation.23 Therefore, in this study, the effects of acetH, HU, or AG on the formation of AGEs were investigated in the BSA/Gal models (Figure 1). This included the changes in AGEs’ fluorescence (Figure 1A) and CML formation detected by ELISA (Figure 1B). It was found that both AGEs’ fluorescence and CML formation in the BSA/Gal (the control) were significantly increased (P<0.05) compared to the blank in the 10-day reaction, and that acetH, HU, or AG addition (2.5 or 5 mM) reduced significantly (P<0.05) both AGEs’ fluorescence and CML formation compared to the control. The glycated-BSA fluorescence reduced in acetH, HU, and AG treatment (at 5 mM) from 100% to 70.27%, 68.22%, and 82.82%, respectively, and the order of lowering AGEs’ fluorescence at 5 mM was acetH≅HU > AG (Figure 1A). The CML formation with acetH, HU, and AG treatment (at 5 mM) reduced from 100% to 14.59%, 24.85%, and 49.32%, respectively, and the order of lowering CML formation at 5 mM was acetH > HU > AG (Figure 1B). It was clear that both acetH and HU showed better and significant differences (P<0.05) compared to AG in the reduction of AGE formation in this study. The AG is used to trap carbonyls and dicarbonyl compounds in Amadori intermediates.11,26 The AG showed promising antiglycation activities in BSA-glucose, BSA-MGO, and GK dipeptide-ribose models by fluorescence detection.24 The fluorescence detection (340–370 nm for excitation and 420–470 nm for emission) for AGE formation was frequently used in the literature.24,25 ML is one of the well-characterized AGEs;7 however, detection of nonfluorescent CML is mainly performed by liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC/MS),27 LC/MS/MS,28 ELISA, and/or immunostains.19,20 In this study, the fluorescence measurement and detection of CML formation in the BSA/Gal models were done using two independent methods; acetH showed promising antiglycation results and was further used to investigate CML formation by Western blot assays.
Figure 2 shows the immune stains of CML formation with or without AG and acetH treatment (5 mM) in BSA/Gal models at either 10- or 14-day reaction. The intensities of the protein stains (Figure 2A) did not show an apparent difference among blank (lane 1), control (lane 2), AG (lane 3), and acetH (lane 4) treatment groups under 10-day reaction (left panel, Figure 2A). Similar results (lanes 1′–4′) were found for the 14-day treated groups (right panel, Figure 2A). Figure 2B shows the Western blot results for CML formation. No detectable CML was found in the blank subjected to either 10-day (lane 1) or 14-day (lane 1′) reaction; detectable CML was found in the control subjected to both 10-day (lane 2) and 14-day (lane 2′) reactions, with the latter generating more detectable formation. Under the same protein loads, treatment with 5 mM of AG (lanes 3 and 3′) and acetH (lanes 4 and 4′) clearly decreased the CML formation, and acetH showed more capacity than AG in the prevention of CML formation in BSA/Gal models.
Effects of acetH on DPPH and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities
It was reported that AGEs can induce intracellular ROS production via binding to receptors for AGEs,8 and the radical generation was detected by ESR spectrometer in BSA/glucose nonenzymatic glycation models.24 Figure 3 shows the scavenging activities of acetH against DPPH radicals and hydroxyl radicals. The stable DPPH radicals were frequently used as the target radicals for evaluation of the scavenging activities of natural or synthesized compounds.29 Figure 3A shows the DPPH radical scavenging activities of acetH by spectrophotometry. It was found that acetH showed dose-dependent DPPH radical scavenging activities. AcetH at 6, 12, 24, and 60 μM showed DPPH radical scavenging activities of 8.8%, 20.2%, 38.0%, and 61.1%, respectively. The relationships between calculated DPPH radical scavenging activities (Y) and the acetH concentrations (X) used were transformed into the equation: Y =2.166X–3.403−0.018X2 (R2=0.999). Therefore, the calculated IC50 of acetH for DPPH radical scavenging activity was 34.86 μM (Figure 3A), as compared with 13.1 μM for ascorbic acid21,22 and 23 μM for HU.18 Figure 3B shows the hydroxyl radical scavenging activities of acetH by ESR spectrometer; the hydroxyl radical is trapped by DMPO and intensities of the DMPO-OH adducts in the blank are recognized as 100. From the results of DMPO-OH intensities, acetH showed dose-dependent scavenging activities against hydroxyl radicals. The 10 μM, 20 μM, 500 μM, and 5 mM of acetH exhibited hydroxyl radical scavenging activities of 19%, 39.8%, 63.3%, and 93.5%, respectively. The relationships between calculated hydroxyl radical scavenging activities (Y) and the acetH concentrations used (X, log concentration) were transformed into the equation: Y=25.0144X–0.4998 (R2=0.965). Therefore, the calculated IC50 of acetH for hydroxyl radical scavenging activity was 104.42 μM by ESR spectrometry. Electron resonance showed acetH to have two mesomeric forms.29 This might explain the radical scavenging activities in this study.
Effects of acetH on SSAO inhibitory activities and related kinetic parameters
Different concentrations of acetH (5, 10, 25, and 50 μM) were used to investigate the SSAO inhibitory activities (Figure 4A). AcetH was found to show dose-dependent inhibitory activities against SSAO. AcetH at concentrations of 5, 10, 25, and 50 μM showed SSAO inhibitory activities of 28.4%, 54.3%, 80.2%, and 94.1%, respectively. The relationships between calculated SSAO inhibitory activities (Y) and the acetH concentrations (X) used were transformed into the equation: Y =14.045+3.889X–0.046X2 (R2=0.977). Therefore, the calculated IC50 for the SSAO inhibitory activity of acetH was 10.56 μM, which was about one-third of semicarbazide (34.21 μM) reported under the same conditions.18 Determination of SSAO kinetic parameters in the presence of acetH (6.5 μM) showed that Km′ was not significantly different from Km; however, Vmax′ decreased from 0.1509 (ΔA420 nm/min) to 0.0785 (ΔA420 nm/min). AcetH showed noncompetitive inhibition (Figure 4B). The present kinetic results meant that acetH could reduce the maximum catalytic rates of SSAO without altering the affinity of benzylamine toward SSAO. It was reported that Aβ itself could induce SSAO increases in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and the metabolites catalyzed by SSAO might destroy normal vascular function and then accelerate the cerebral amyloid angiopathy related to AD progression.30 The soluble SSAO activity might contribute to oxidative stress in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.31
The hydroxamate moiety derivatives have been reviewed for their pharmacologic and biologic activities toward cancer, cardiovascular diseases, AD, tuberculosis, and so on.16 Succinimide hydroxamic acids were reported to be potent histone deacetylase inhibitors and show inhibition against tumor cell proliferation.32 The salicylic acid derivatives containing hydroxamate moiety were reported to be potent cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors.33 Oxal acid derivatives containing hydroxamate moiety were found to be potent matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors.34 Few hydroxamate derivatives were reported to be antiglycation agents, and the results of this study showed that both clinical drugs containing the hydroxamate moieties of acetH and HU to be better than AG in the reduction of AGE formation. The self-prepared pectin hydroxamates35,36 and alginic acid hydroxamates37 in our previous reports exhibited SSAO inhibitory activities and DPPH radical and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities, and both pectin hydroxamates35,36 and alginic acid hydroxamates belonged to macromolecular polysaccharides. The self-prepared galacturonic acid hydroxamate38 showed DPPH radical scavenging activities with IC50 of 82 μM,38 which was about 2.5-fold higher than that of acetH in this study; the self-prepared galacturonic acid hydroxamate22 showed SSAO inhibitory activities with IC50 of 41 μM,22 which was about 4-fold higher than that of acetH in this study.
Results of this study showed that the simple hydroxamic acid derivative of acetH possessed antiglycation activity in vitro, DPPH radial and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities, and dose-dependent SSAO inhibitory activities. AcetH, a bacterial urease inhibitor, is used to treat kidney stones and infections in the urinary tract. AcetH, which might have the potential for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and diabetes complications, needs further investigation in cell and animal models.
