Ternary complex formation of some potent insulin-mimetic zinc(II) complexes of bidentate ligands: maltol and 3-hydroxy-1,2-dimethyl-pyridinone with (O,O), 2-picolinic acid and 6-methylpicolinic acid with (N,O) and the tridentate 2,6-dipicolinic acid with (O,N,O) coordination modes was studied in aqueous solutions by pH-potentiometry and spectroscopic (UV, CD, ESI-MS) methods in the presence of critical cell constituents such as L-glutathione reduced (GSH) and adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP… CONTINUE READING
