Biological activity of some cobalt(II) and molybdenum(VI) complexes: in vitro cytotoxicity
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
Cytotoxicity and cell growth inhibition studies were\performed for five distinct cobalt(II) [CO2(acac)tpmc](CIO4)(3), [Co-2(dibzac)tpmc](CIO4)(3). [Co-2(hfac)tpmc](CIO4)(3). [Co-2(tmhd)tpmc](CIO4)(3), and [Co-2(ox)tpmc](CIO4)(2).3H(2)O and five molybdenum(VI) complexes, [MoO2(pipdtc)(2)]. [MoO2(morphdtc)(2)]. [MoO2(timdtc)(2)], [MoO2(pzdtc)(2)] and [MoO2(N-Mepzdtc)(2)]. The former were tested in two leukemia cell lines: chronic myelogenic leukemia (K562) and human promyelocytic cell line (U937). They showed to have relatively high toxicity in K562 cells and a relatively low cytotoxicity in U937 cells. as assessed by both MTT and Trypan Blue assays. The five molybdenum complexes were tested in human promyelotic U937 cell line and they showed to have high toxicity.
