General Aspects of Metal Ions as Signaling Agents in Health and Disease
TLDR
This review focuses on the current knowledge on the involvement of metal ions in signaling processes within the cell, in both physiological and pathological conditions and describes signaling pathways where zinc, copper, and iron play a key role.
Iron chelating strategies in systemic metal overload, neurodegeneration and cancer.
TLDR
It was shown, that desferrioxamine and deferasirox are antiproliferative agents active in several types of cancer and very potent compounds with possible use as anticancer drugs are thiosemicarbazones.
Chiral spin crossover nanoparticles and gels with switchable circular dichroism
Spin crossover complexes represent spectacular examples of molecular switchable materials. We describe a new approach towards homochiral coordination nanoparticles of [Fe(NH2trz)3](L-CSA)2 (NH2trz =
Metal transport and homeostasis within the human body: toxicity associated with transport abnormalities.
TLDR
This paper tries to summarize the newest theses on metal toxicity, transport and homeostasis, and focuses on toxic and essential metal pathways crossing and tries to follow the exact metal binding molecules within the body and provide insight into the transport mechanism.
Ag+ Complexes as Potential Therapeutic Agents in Medicine and Pharmacy.
TLDR
This work is a detailed summary of the newest findings on the bioinorganic chemistry of silver, with a special focus on the applications of Ag+ complexes and nanoparticles.
Formation in aqueous solution of a non-oxido V(IV) complex with VN6 coordination. Potentiometric, ESI-MS, spectroscopic and computational characterization.
TLDR
The results indicate that V(IV)O(2+) species are formed in acid and weakly basic solution and that [V(tmcaH-2)2] is observed above pH 10 and DFT calculations suggest that the two -NH2 groups are in trans position.
Coordination diversity in mono- and oligonuclear copper(II) complexes of pyridine-2-hydroxamic and pyridine-2,6-dihydroxamic acids.
TLDR
A series of copper(II) complexes has been isolated in the solid state and characterized by a variety of spectroscopic methods, X-ray structure analysis, and magnetic susceptibility measurements, revealing strong antiferromagnetic coupling between the copper( II) ions mediated by the hydroxamate bridges.
