Compared with BP group, 23 metabolites were significantly altered in SD group: creatinine, azelaic acid, protocatechuic acid, and 3,4-dihydroxyhydrocinnamic acid were upregulated, yet lactate, glycolic acid, alanine, nicotinic acid, phenylacetic acid, glycine, 4-deoxyerythronic acid, pipecolic acid, 2,4-dihydroxybutanoic acid, nicotinamide, uracil, threonic acid, suberic acid, putrescine, citric acid, hippurate, lysine, urate, and ascorbic acid were downregulated in SD group as shown in the heat map (Figure 5(a)).
In our work, rationale behind the selection of phenylacetic acid and pyridine, is composition of [Cu(tmphen)2]Cl2, where tmphen stands for 3,4,7,8-tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline, the first reported copper complex with remarkable in-vivo anti-cancer activity and the Casiopeinas, a famous class of Cu(II) mixed-ligand complexes containing both N-and O-donor ligands [11, 12].
