Superoxide (O(2)(·-)) is the proximal mitochondrial reactive oxygen species underlying pathology and redox signaling. This central role prioritizes development of a mitochondria-targeted reagent selective for controlling O(2)(·-). MnTBAP is a novel, stable and cell-permeable superoxide dismutase mimetic.

In vitro: Due to its superoxide dismutase mimetic property, 50 microM MnTBAP was found to attenuate the injury produced dose-dependently by exposure to various concentrations of paraquat for 4 h. MnTBAP also protected endothelial cells in a dose-dependent manner against paraquat. The protective effect of MnTBAP appears to be caused by its intracellular superoxide-scavenging activity because neither the zinc form nor CuZnSOD protected the cells against paraquat-induced injury [1].

In vivo: Local administration of MnTBAP significantly and reduced carrageenan-induced paw oedema dose-dependently at all time points, which was related to its superoxide dismutase mimetic property. MnTBAP also caused a significant dose-dependent reduction in paw myeloperoxidase activity, as well as preventing histological injury. Immunohistochemical analyses for nitrotyrosine showed a positive staining in paw from carrageenan-treated rats [2].

Clinical trial: Up to now, MnTBAP is still in the preclinical development stage.
