MILS-16 provides an up-to-date review of the impact of alkali metal ions on life. Their bioinorganic chemistry and analytical determination, the solid state structures of bio-ligand complexes and the properties of alkali metal ions in solution in the context of all kinds of biologically relevant ligands are covered, this includes proteins (enzymes) and nucleic acids (G-quadruplexes). Minerals containing sodium (Na + ) and potassium (K + ) are abundant in the Earth's crust, making Na + and K… Expand
Alkali Metal Chelation by 3–Hydroxy–4–Pyridinone
Chelations of neutral and one–electron positive ionic alkali metals including Lithium (Li/Li+), Sodium (Na/Na+) and Potassium (K/K+) by 3–Hydroxy–4–Pyridinone (HPO) have been investigated by the inExpand
Synthesis and characterization structural of alkali cations (Li+, Na+, K+, Rb+, Cs+) carboxylate-dithiocarbamate complexes of L-Proline
Abstract The alkali metal (Li + , Na + , K + , Rb + , Cs + ) carboxylate-dithiocarbamate complexes of L -proline have been prepared from the reaction of L -proline with carbon disulfide in theExpand
The bio-relevant metals of the periodic table of the elements
Abstract The bio-relevant metals (and derived compounds) of the Periodic Table of the Elements (PTE) are in the focus. The bulk elements sodium (Na), potassium (K), magnesium (Mg), and calcium (Ca)Expand
The interaction of NOTA as a bifunctional chelator with competitive alkali metal ions: a DFT study
1,4,7-Triazacyclononane-1,4,7-triacetic acid (NOTA) is a key chelator for radiolabelling pharmaceuticals. The ability of alkali metals in the human body to complex with NOTA and compete withExpand
Distinct differences in metal ion specificity of RNA and DNA G-quadruplexes
TLDR
The results show that the RNA quadruplexes are more stable than their DNA counterparts under the same buffer conditions, and the difference in response between NRAS and TERRA, as well as to the corresponding DNA sequences with respect to different metal ions, could potentially be exploited for selective targeting purposes. Expand
Evolution of cation binding in the active sites of P-loop nucleoside triphosphatases
TLDR
Comparative structure analysis of P-loop NTPases of various classes with molecular dynamics simulations of Mg-ATP complexes in water and in the presence of potassium, sodium, or ammonium ions found the conserved P- loop motif keeps the triphosphate chains of enzyme-bound NTPs in an extended, catalytically prone conformation, similar to that attained by ATP in water. Expand
The phenoxyl group-modulated interplay of cation-π and σ-type interactions in the alkali metal series.
TLDR
It is argued that the combined effect of cation dimensions and hydroxyl substitution in catechol-Na+ complexes makes σ-type configurations remarkably more stable and easily accessible than cation-π ones, which may offer a useful reference for tuning accurate force fields. Expand
Evolution of cation binding in the active sites of P-loop nucleoside triphosphatases in relation to the basic catalytic mechanism
TLDR
Comparative structure analysis with molecular dynamics simulations of Mg-ATP and MG-GTP complexes in water and in the presence of potassium, sodium, or ammonium ions revealed an almost eclipsed, catalytically productive conformation of the triphosphate chain, which could represent the basic mechanism of hydrolysis by P-loop NTPases. Expand
Ultrafast selective transport of alkali metal ions in metal organic frameworks with subnanometer pores
TLDR
Metal organic framework membranes, including ZIF-8 and UiO-66 membranes with uniform subnanometer pores consisting of angstrom-sized windows and nanometer-sized cavities for ultrafast selective transport of alkali metal ions are reported. Expand
Effects of Lithium and Other Monovalent Ions on Palmitoyl Oleoyl Phosphatidylcholine Bilayer.
TLDR
It is observed that monovalent salts alter bilayer properties through structural changes and not so much through the changes in surface potential. Expand
