A new ligand and two ruthenium(II) complexes [Ru(bpy)(2)(DNPIP)](ClO(4))(2)1 and [Ru(bpy)(2)(DAPIP)](ClO(4))(2)2 were synthesized and characterized. The DNA-binding constants for complexes 1 and 2 were determined to be 2.24 (±0.30) × 10(5) M(-1) (s = 1.29) and 6.34 (±0.32) × 10(4) M(-1) (s = 2.84). The photocleavage of pBR322 DNA by Ru(II) complexes was(More)
Two novel ruthenium(II) complexes [Ru(dmb)2(addppn)](ClO4)2 (1) and [Ru(bpy)2(addppn)](ClO4)2 (2) were synthesized. The DNA-binding constants of complexes 1 and 2 were determined to be 4.78 (±0.49) × 10(5) and 7.42 (±0.53) × 10(5) M(-1). The results indicate that complexes 1 and 2 interact with CT DNA through intercalative mode. The cytotoxicity in vitro of(More)
Two ruthenium (II) complexes [Ru(dmb)2(APIP)](ClO4)2 (APIP=2-(2-aminophenyl)imidazo[4,5-f ][1,10]phenanthroline, dmb=4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine; 1) and [Ru(dmb)2(HAPIP)](ClO4)2 (HAPIP=2-(2-hydroxyl-4-aminophenyl)imidazo[4,5-f ][1,10]phenanthroline; 2) were synthesized and characterized. DNA binding was investigated by electronic absorption titration,(More)
In this study, we report the DNA interaction and cytotoxicity of four dibenzoxanthene compounds 1-4. The binding behaviors of these compounds to calf thymus DNA were studied by absorption titration, viscosity measurements. The DNA binding constants of compounds 1, 2, 3, and 4 are 5.05×10(4), 2.13×10(3), 5.10×10(4), and 3.03×10(3) M(-1), respectively. The(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate DNA-binding and cytotoxic activity of the four new Ru(II) polypyridyl complexes [Ru(dmb)₂(HMHPIP)](ClO₄)₂ (1), [Ru(bpy)₂(HMHPIP)](ClO₄)₂ (2), [Ru(phen)₂(HMHPIP)](ClO₄)₂ (3) and [Ru(dmp)₂(HMHPIP)](ClO₄)₂ (4). The complexes interact with DNA through intercalative mode and show relatively high cytotoxic activity against(More)

The cytotoxicity of(More)
Two new ligands maip (1a), paip (1b) with their ruthenium (II) complexes [Ru(bpy)(2)(maip)](ClO(4))(2) (2a) and [Ru(bpy)(2)(paip)](ClO(4))(2) (2b) have been synthesized and characterized. The results show that complexes 2a and 2b interact with DNA through intercalative mode. The cytotoxicity of these compounds has been evaluated by MTT assay. The(More)
A new ligand DBHIP and its two ruthenium (II) complexes [Ru(bpy)(2)(DBHIP)](ClO(4))(2) (1) and [Ru(phen)(2)(DBHIP)](ClO(4))(2) (2) have been synthesized and characterized. The binding behaviors of the two complexes to calf thymus DNA were investigated by absorption spectra, viscosity measurements, thermal denaturation and photoactivated cleavage. The(More)
A new ligand DBHIP and its two ruthenium(II) complexes [Ru(dmb)(2)(DBHIP)](ClO(4))(2) (1) and [Ru(dmp)(2)(DBHIP)](ClO(4))(2) (2) have been synthesized and characterized. The cytotoxicity of DBHIP and complexes 1 and 2 has been assessed by MTT assay. The apoptosis studies were carried out with acridine orange/ethidium bromide (AO/EB) staining methods. The(More)
Two new Ru(II) complexes, [Ru(bpy)2(FAMP)](ClO4)2 1 and 2, are synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, electrospray mass spectrometry, and 1H nuclear magnetic resonance. The in vitro cytotoxicities and apoptosis-inducing properties of these complexes are extensively studied. Complexes 1 and 2 exhibit potent antiproliferative activities against(More)
