The side effects and resistance of metal-based anticancer drugs prompted us to synthesis a novel series of five Pd(II) complexes of the type [Pd(8-QO)(AA)]; where 8-QO = anion of 8-hydroxyquinoline and AA = anions of amino acids having nonpolar aliphatic side chain such as glycine (-H), alanine (-CH3), valine (-CH(CH3)2), leucine (-CH2-CH(CH3)2) and isoleucine (-CH(CH3)CH2-CH3). The complexes have been characterized with the help of FT-IR, UV-Vis, one and two-dimensional 1H-NMR, elemental analysis and conductivity measurements. On the basis of these characterization data, a four coordinated square planar geometry for all of these complexes have been proposed. The compounds were screened for their in vitro activities against human cancer cell line, MOLT-4 and their 50% inhibition concentration were ascertained by means of MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay. Since four out of the five newly synthesized compounds were found to be more active than the standard anticancer drug, cisplatin, their detailed interaction with calf thymus DNA (as a target) and bovine serum albumin (BSA) (as a carrier) were also carried out by utilizing absorption spectra, fluorescence spectra and ethidium bromide displ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
