Binding of Sulfamerazine and Sulfamethazine to Bovine Serum Albumin and Nitrogen Purine Base Adenine: A Comparative Study

Abstract:

Quenching of bovine serum albumin (BSA) and DNA base (adenine) by sulfamerazine (SM) and sulfamethazine (SMT) was studied using UV-visible, fluorescence cyclic voltammetry and molecular docking methods. A strong fluorescence quenching reaction of SM and SMT to BSA/adenine was observed and the quenching mechanism was suggested as static. Both drugs can bind to BSA and adenine with stoichiometric ratio of 1:1 and the protein - drug complexes are stabilized mainly by hydrogen bonds and van der Waals interaction. Compared to SM, SMT contributes substantially higher binding efficiency with BSA/adenine. With addition of drug solution to the adenine/BSA, the oxidation and the reduction peaks shifted towards high and low potentials, respectively. Ro, J, r and E values in the BSA-drugs are higher than that of adenine – drug molecules suggest that binding of the sulfa drugs with BSA is higher than adenine –drug molecules. Docking method specify that bioactive site of sulfa drugs moiety, the aniline group is interacted with the BSA molecules.
