Homodimeric and heterodimeric bis(amino thiol) oxometal complexes with rhenium(V) and technetium(V). Control of heterodimeric complex formation and an approach to metal complexes that mimic steroid hormones

We have investigated the possibility of preparing complexes of rhenium and technetium whose shape resembles that of ligands for steroid receptors. The general structure of N2S2 complexes of oxorhenium(V) and oxotechnetium(V) is such that they could replace the BC ring system of steroid, thereby generating a metal complex system with considerable size and shape similarity to a steroid. Such a metal-integrated steroid-shaped complex can be constructed as a heterodimer of two different amino thiols; complexes of rhenium and technetium with such heterodimeric bis-bidentate structure have not been systematically studied. In this investigation, we have shown that complexes of this nature form readily when appropriate metal precursors are combined with a mixture of amino thiols. In the systems we have studied, heterodimeric complex formation is preferred over homodimeric complex formation, and in one system where we were able to obtain an X-ray crystal structure, this oxorhenium heterodimer had the desired trans geometry. These rhenium and technetium-99m complexes are reasonably stable toward ligand exchange; they can be readily purified by chromatography under appropriate conditions, and the one technetium-99m complex studied in vivo...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.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
