A study of the effect of the tetrazole moiety, a cis-amide bond surrogate, on the Cu(II) coordinating properties of oligopeptides is reported. The insertion of the tetrazole moiety psi (CN4) into the peptide sequence of [Leu5]enkephalin considerably changes the coordination ability of the ligand. Potentiometric and spectroscopic results indicate that if the(More)
The aim of the investigation was to establish the chelating ability of a new proctolin analogue of the sequence Arg-Tyr-LeuPsi[CN(4)]Ala-Thr towards copper(II) ions. The insertion of the tetrazole moiety into the peptide sequence has considerably changed the coordination ability of the ligand. Potentiometric and spectroscopic (UV-Vis, CD, EPR) results(More)
Complex formation between Cu(II) and three tetrazole analogues of opioid peptide-deltorphin I has been investigated. In potentiometric and spectroscopic (UV-Vis, CD and EPR) studies have been established the thermodynamic stability, speciation and structure of Cu(II) complexes with Tyr-D-Ala-Phe-Asp-Val-Val-Gly-NH2 (L1),(More)
Potentionmetric and spectroscopic (EPR, CD and absorption spectra) data have shown that a fragment of envelope proteins of the hepatitis B virus could be very specific bind molecules for Cu2+ ions using arginine lateral NH2 donor sites. The presence of Pro and Asp residues makes Arg binding not only very specific, but also very efficient.
Copper(II) complexes with a new chelator-type nucleoside-histidine modified 2'-deoxyriboadenosine (N-[(9-β-D-2'-deoxyribofuranosylpurin-6-yl)-carbamoyl]histidine) were studied by potentiometric and spectroscopic (UV-visible, CD, EPR) techniques, in conjunction with computer modeling optimization. The ligand can act as bidentate or tridentate depending on pH(More)

Copper(II) complexes of histamine modified 2'-deoxyriboadenosine (N-[(9-beta-D-2'-deoxyribofuranosylpurin-6-yl)-carbamoyl]histamine) ligand were studied by potentiometric, UV-visible and EPR techniques. The imidazole residue of the ligand was described as the main binding site forming mono-, bis-(ligand) and dimer complexes, but the interactions between(More)

Hydrazone hesperetin Schiff base (HHSB) - N-[(±)-[5,7-dihydroxy-2-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxy-phenyl)chroman-4-ylidene]amino]benzamide has been synthesized and its crystal structure was determined. This compound was used for the formation of Cu(II) complexes in solid state and in solution which were characterized using different spectroscopic methods. The analyses(More)
Potentiometric and spectroscopic (absorption, circular dichroism and electron paramagnetic resonance) study on the coordination of two angiotensin II fragments (Asp-Arg-Val-Tyr-Ile-His and Arg-Val-Tyr-Ile-His) to Cu(II) ions has shown that competition between amino and imidazole nitrogens to anchor metal ions is a complicated process and may lead to(More)
