Sulphated metabolites of silybin and their interactions with sulphatases


This bachelor thesis solves the question of sulphated metabolites of silybin by their interactions with sulfatases. Silybin is flavonolignan prepared from the seeds of milk thistle (Silybum marianum). Sulfate of silybin (metabolite) has not been isolated from organism so far thus its exact structure has not been determined. In this work synthesis of silybin-7,23-disulfate from natural silybin is presented. Silybin disulfate was isolated and spectrally characterized (NMR, MS). In the next step the kinetics of the reaction pNPS with sulfatase from Helix pomatia was measured: Km = 0.0494 mmol/l a Vmax = 0.0325 mmol/dm3 /min. Conditions for sulfatase reaction from Helix pomatia were selected according to literature. One of the main goal was to determine, whether silybin-7,23-disulfate is a substrate and/or an inhibitor of sulfatase from Helix pomatia. Activity measurements of the sulfatase from Helix pomatia in the presence of various concentrations of silybin-7,23-disulfate enabled us to determine that silybin disulfate at concentration higher than 0.2 mM is a strong inhibitor of the sulfatase tested. Series of reactions with sulfatase from Helix pomatia were performed to determine whether silybin-7,23-disulfate is a substrate. Reactions were monitored by HPLC and it was demonstrated that the..
