We propose an original technique for separating the spectrum of the noisy component from that of the sinusoidal, quasi-deterministic one, for the sinusoids + transients + noise modeling of musical sounds. It also enables estimation of the time-domain noise envelope and detection of transients with standard techniques. The algorithm for spectrum separation(More)
A new Cu-based anticancer metallodrug which targets the translocator protein is reported. [CuBr2(TZ6)] elicits a remarkable in vitro cytotoxicity in sensitive and multidrug resistant cell lines and induces a 98% reduction of tumor mass in a murine tumor model. Target binding was studied by experimental and computational methods.
The hydroxo complex cis-[L2Pt(mu-OH)]2(NO3)2 (L = PMe2Ph), in various solvents, reacts with 1-methylcytosine (1-MeCy) to give as the final product the cyclic species cis-[L2Pt{1-MeCy(-H),N 3N 4}]3(NO3)3 (1) in high or quantitative yield. X-ray analysis of 1 evidences a trinuclear species with the NH(2)-deprotonated nucleobases bridging symmetrically the(More)
The addition of 1-methylcytosine (1-MeCy) or 9-methylguanine (9-MeGu) to solutions of cis-(PPh3)2P(ONO2)2 (1a), in a molar ratio of 1:1, affords the monoadducts cis-[(PPh3)2Pt(1-MeCy)(ONO2)]NO3 (2a) and cis-[(PPh3)2Pt(9-MeGu)(ONO2)]NO3 (3a) and only trace amounts of the bisadducts cis-[(PPh3)2Pt(1-MeCy)2](NO3)2 (4a) and cis-[(PPh3)2Pt(9-MeGu)2](NO3)2 (5a),(More)
A series of gold(I) pioneer complexes bearing N-heterocyclic carbenes and steroid derivatives (ethynylestradiol and ethisterone) with the generic formula [Au(R2 -imidazol-2-ylidene)(steroid)] (where R=CH3 or CH2 CH2 OCH3 ) were synthesized, and the X-ray structure of a rare of gold(I)-estradiol derivative is discussed. Toxicity studies reveal notable(More)
The amidine complexes cis-[L(2)PtNH==C(R){1-MeCy(-2H)}]NO(3) (R = Me, 1a; Ph, 1b, Me(3)C, 1c; Ph(2)(H)C, 1d) and cis-[L(2)PtNH==C(R){9-MeAd(-2H)}]NO(3) (R = Me, 2a; Ph, 2b; Me(3)C, 2c; Ph(2)(H)C, 2d), are formed when cis-[L(2)Pt(μ-OH)](2)(NO(3))(2) (L = PPh(3)) reacts with 1-methylcytosine (1-MeCy) and 9-methyladenine (9-MeAd) in solution of MeCN, PhCN,(More)
Deprotonation of 1-methylcytosine (1-MeCy) and 9-methyladenine (9-MeAd) promoted by cis-[L(2)Pt(mu-OH)](2)(NO(3))(2) (L = PPh(3), PMePh(2), (1)/(2)dppe) in PhCN causes the irreversible insertion of a nitrile molecule into the Pt-N4 and Pt-N6 bonds of the cytosinate and adeninate ligands, respectively, to form the stable azametallacycle complexes(More)
The mixed nucleobases complexes cis-[L(2)Pt{1-MeTy(-H)}(1-MeCy,N(3))]NO(3) (L = PPh(3), ; PMePh(2), ), containing the N(3)-deprotonated 1-methylthymine (1-MeTy(-H)) and the neutral 1-methylcytosine (1-MeCy) have been prepared and characterised.
