Investigations on the interactions between naphthalimide-based anti-tumor drugs and human serum albumin by spectroscopic and molecular modeling methods



Investigations on the interactions between naphthalimide-based anti-tumor drugs and human serum albumin by spectroscopic and molecular modeling methods



Luminescence 31(1): 88-95



The interactions between the three kinds of naphthalimide-based anti-tumor drugs (NADA, NADB, NADC) and human serum albumin (HSA) under simulated physiological conditions were investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy, circular dichroism spectroscopy and molecular modeling. The results of the fluorescence quenching spectroscopy showed that the quenching mechanisms for different drugs were static and their affinity was in a descending order of NADA > NADB > NADC. The relative thermodynamic parameters indicated that hydrophobic force was the predominant intermolecular force in the binding of NAD to HSA, while van der Waals interactions and hydrogen bonds could not be ignored. The results of site marker competitive experiment confirmed that the binding site of HSA primarily took place in site I. Furthermore, the molecular modeling study was consistent with these results. The study of circular dichroism spectra demonstrated that the presence of NADs decreased the α-helical content of HSA and induced the change of the secondary structure of HSA.
