Mimetics of antioxidant enzymes Such as superoxide dismutases (SOD) or catalases are reported as potential new drugs able to reduce oxidative stress damage. In particular, manganese(III) complexes of salen-type ligands have been studied as both SOD and catalase mimetics. In this paper, we report the synthesis of two novel conjugates of salen-type ligands with the beta-cyclodextrin, the 6-deoxy-6-[(S-cysteamidopropyl(1,2-diamino)N,N'-bis(salicylidene))]-beta -cyclodextrin and the 6-deoxy-6-[(S-cysteamidopropyl (1,2-diamino)N,N'-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene))]-beta-cyclodextrin, their spectroscopic characterization, and the synthesis and the characterization of their manganese(III) complexes. The SOD-like activity of the metal complexes was investigated by the indirect Fridovich method. The catalase like activity was tested using a Clark-type oxygen electrode. The peroxidase activity was tested using the ABTS (2,2'-azino-bis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid)) assay. The glycoconjugation of salen-manganese(III) complexes yields compounds with enhanced SOD activity. These complexes also show catalase and peroxidase activities higher than the simple salen complexes (EUK 113 and EUK 108). (C) 2008 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
