Are the metal identity and stoichiometry of metal complexes important for colchicine site binding and inhibition of tubulin polymerization? † (2024)
Journal Article
Besleaga, I., Raptová, R., Stoica, A.-C., Milunovic, M. N. M., Zalibera, M., Bai, R., …Arion, V. B. (in press). Are the metal identity and stoichiometry of metal complexes important for colchicine site binding and inhibition of tubulin polymerization? †. Dalton Transactions, https://doi.org/10.1039/d4dt01469c

Quite recently we discovered that copper(ii) complexes with isomeric morpholine-thiosemicarbazone hybrid ligands show good cytotoxicity in cancer cells and that the molecular target responsible for this activity might be tubulin. In order to obtain b... Read More about Are the metal identity and stoichiometry of metal complexes important for colchicine site binding and inhibition of tubulin polymerization? †.
