BACKGROUND NGR-hTNF exploits the peptide asparagine-glycine-arginine (NGR) for selectively targeting tumour necrosis factor (TNF) to CD13-overexpressing tumour vessels. Maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of NGR-hTNF was previously established at 45 μg m(-2) as 1-h infusion, with dose-limiting toxicity being grade 3 infusion-related reactions. We explored further(More)
In the title complex, [Mg(C44H28N4)(C6H4N2)(H2O)], the Mg(2+) cation is octa-hedrally coordinated and lies on an inversion center with the axially located 4-cyano-pyridine and aqua ligands exhibiting 50% substitutional disorder. The cyano-bound 4-cyano-pyridine mol-ecule also is disordered across the inversion centre. The four N atoms of the pyrrole rings(More)
In the title compound, [Mn(C44H28N4)Cl]·2C5H6N2, the Mn(III) centre is coordinated by four pyrrole N atoms [averaged Mn-N = 2.012 (4) Å] of the tetra-phenyl-porphyrin mol-ecule and one chloride axial ligand [Mn-Cl = 2.4315 (7) Å] in a square-pyramidal geometry. The porphyrin macrocycle exhibits a non-planar conformation with major ruffling and saddling(More)
The orange-coloured protein (ORP) from Desulfovibrio gigas is a 12 kDa protein that contains a novel mixed-metal sulfide cluster of the type [S(2)MoS(2)CuS(2)MoS(2)]. Diffracting crystals of the apo form of ORP have been obtained. Data have been collected for the apo form of ORP to 2.25 A resolution in-house and to beyond 2.0 A resolution at ESRF, Grenoble.(More)
In the title salt, [Eu(C3H7NO)8][PMo12O40], the asymmetric unit comprises one α-Keggin-type [PMo12O40](3-) polyoxidometalate anion and one distorted dodeca-hedral [Eu(C3H7NO)8](3+) complex cation. In the crystal, the isolated polyoxidometalate anions are packed into hexa-gonally arranged rows extending parallel to [001]. The complex cations are situated(More)
The title complex, [Sn(IV)(C(44)H(28)N(4))(CNO)(OH)], exhibits substitutional disorder of the OH(-) and OCN(-) axial ligands. Thus, the cyanato-O ligand and the hydroxyl group bonded to the central Sn(IV) atom share statistically the axial position. The Sn(IV) ion is hexa-coordinated by the four N atoms of the pyrrole rings of the tetra-phenyl-porphyrin(More)
In the title salt, [Mn(C44H28N4)(H2O)](CF3SO3) or [Mn(III)(TPP)(H2O)](CF3SO3) (where TPP is the dianion of 5,10,15,20-tetra-phenyl-porphyrin), the Mn(III) cation is chelated by the four pyrrole N atoms of the porphyrinate anion and additionally coordinated by an aqua ligand in an apical site, completing the distorted square-pyramidal coordination(More)
