The present study investigated the binding interaction between an antiviral drug, valacyclovir and calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) using emission, absorption, circular dichroism, viscosity and DNA melting studies. In fluorimetric studies, thermodynamic enhancement constant (K(D)) and bimolecular enhancement constant (K(B)) were calculated at different temperatures(More)
A new Pt(II) complex, [Pt(DIP)(LL)](NO(3))(2) (in which DIP is 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline and LL is the aliphatic dinitrogen ligand, N,N-dimethyl-trimethylenediamine), was synthesized and characterized using different physico-chemical methods. The interaction of this complex with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated by absorption, emission,(More)
One approach to accelerate the availability of new cancer drugs is to test drugs approved for other conditions as anticancer agents. In recent years, some researchers have shown that antiviral drugs, such as ritonavir, saquinavir, and nelfinavir, inhibit the growth of over 60 cancer cell lines derived from nine different tumor types. This article studied(More)
In this paper, variational homotopy perturbation method (VHPM) is used to obtain analytical solution for the time-dependent Emden-Fowler type of equations with singular behavior. The advantage of this work is twofold. Firstly, the VHPM reduces the computational work. Secondly, in comparison with existing techniques, the VHPM is an improvment with regard to(More)
Two cobalt (II) complexes containing a dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine (dppz) base with the general formulation [Co(dppz)(dmp)(2)]Cl(2), where dmp is 4,7-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline ligand (4,7-dmp) (1) and 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline ligand (2,9-dmp) (2) were synthesized and characterized. Binding interactions of these complexes with calf thymus DNA(More)
