DNA condensation by copper(II) complexes and their anti-proliferative effect on cancerous and normal fibroblast cells(Link)

European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
May 2, 2014
In our search towards copper(II) based anticancer compounds, copper(II) complexes [Cu(bitpy)2](ClO4)21, [Cu(bitpy)(phen)](NO3)22 and [Cu(bitpy)(NO3)](NO3) 3 were synthesized and characterized. All the three complexes contain the tridentate ligand bitpy, which bears biologically relevant benzimidazolyl head group, as one of the ligands. Because of the presence of the planar benzimidazolyl group in...more

Antibacterial activity of copper(II) complexes against staphylococcus aureus

RSC Advances
July 2014
Biofilm formation on medical implants is very difficult to overcome, since the bacteria in this form resist the host defense mechanism and antibiotic therapy. What is needed is the development of an anti-biofouling agent which will prevent the formation of a biofilm especially on periprosthetic implants. In this study, the antibiofilm forming potential of two copper(II) complexes namely, [Cu(bitpy...more

Anomalous behavior of pentacoordinate copper complexes of dimethylphenanthroline and derivatives of terpyridine ligands: Studies on DNA binding, cleavage and apoptotic activity

European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry 46 (2011) 608-617

Copper(II) complexes with substituted terpyridine ligands, namely [Cu(itpy)(dmp)](NO3)2 (1) and [Cu(ptpy)(dmp)](NO3)2 (2) have been synthesized and characterized. The interaction of the complexes with CT-DNA has been explored using spectroscopic techniques and viscosity. Complexes 1 and 2 bind in the grooves of DNA, interestingly 1 in the minor and 2 in the major groove. Both the complexes have...more

Copper(II) complexes of terpyridine derivatives: A footstep towards development of antiproliferative agent for breast cancer

Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry 117 (2012) 48-59

Two copper(II) complexeswith terpyridyl conjugates, [Cu(meotpy)(dmp)](NO3)2 (1) and[Cu(bitpy)(dmp)](NO3)2 (2) where meotpy, bitpy and dmp stand for methoxybenzyl terpyridine, benzimidazolyl terpyridine and dimethyl phenanthroline respectively have been synthesized and characterized. Complex 1 has also been characterized crystallographically. Both the complexes have been found to bind CT-DNA...mor
