Soy isoflavones and other polyphenolics have a number of potentially important beneficial effects on the pro-oxidant aspects of chronic inflammation. The impact of inflammatory cell-specific metabolism of polyphenolics, which can include halogenation and nitration, on the properties of these compounds has not been examined. Using either human neutrophils or differentiated human leukemia cells (HL-60) stimulated with phorbol ester to elicit a respiratory burst, the hypothesis that local generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species may metabolize and modify the biological properties of the soy isoflavones was examined. Coincubation of the stimulated cells with genistein or daidzein had no effect on the respiratory burst. Medium from stimulated cells in the presence of the isoflavones and NO(2)(-) increased the inhibition of copper-induced LDL oxidation. Mass spectrometry analysis of this medium revealed that monochlorinated, dichlorinated, and nitrated isoflavones, formed through a myeloperoxidase-dependent mechanism, were present. The consumption of genistein in the presence of cells was both extensive and rapid with > 95% of the genistein converted to either the chlorinated or nitrated metabolites within 30 min. Chemically synthesized 3'-chlorogenistein and 3'-chlorodaidzein increased the inhibition of LDL oxidation by approximately 4-fold and 2-fold over genistein and daidzein, respectively. These results lead to the hypothesis that inflammatory cell-specific metabolism of polyphenolics can modify the properties of these compounds at the local site of inflammation.
