Synthesis and biological properties of fullerene-containing amino acids and peptides.

Abstract

Organofullerene derivatives have shown a great potential in a wide variety of biological activities such as DNA photocleavage, HIV-protease inhibition, neuroprotection and apoptosis. Among the plethora of functionalized organofullerenes that have been synthesized, fullerene-based amino acids are particularly appealing for structural studies and biological… (More)
