Краткий осмотр (реферат): Among a wide variety of drug nanocarriers developed to date, liposome-based delivery systems are particularly attractive due to their advantageous features such as biocompatibility, complete biodegradability, low toxicity, ability to carry both hydrophilic and lipophilic payloads and protect them from chemical degradation and transformation, increased therapeutic index of a drug, improved pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles compared to free drugs, reduced side effects, etc. The efficiency of drug encapsulation is largely determined by its membrane-partitioning properties as well as physicochemical characteristics of the lipid vesicles. In the present study we concentrated our efforts on the pre-formulation studies of the two synthesized Eu(III) coordination complexes, V3 and V4, the potential anticancer drugs. More specifically, our goal was twofold: i) to characterize the membrane partition properties of these complexes, and ii) to assess how the lipid-associating ability of V3 and V4 depends on membrane structural state being varied by introducing the different amounts of cholesterol (Chol) into phosphatidylcholine (PC) lipid vesicles. To achieve this goal, several fluorescent probes including pyrene, 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (DPH), and 4-p-(dimethylaminostyryl)-1-dodecylpyridinium (DSP-12) have been employed. Partition coefficients of lanthanides determined using the equilibrium dialysis technique proved to depend on the amount of Chol content. Formation of drug-lipid complexes was found to affect pyrene excimerization and DSP-12 spectral properties but exerted no influence on pyrene vibronic structure and DPH anisotropy. Membrane composition was shown to have an impact on the spectral responses of the probes in drug-lipid systems. This finding was interpreted as arising from the sterol condensing effect on the structural state of the lipid bilayer.
