Blurb/Shorttext:
The biology of metals?; Although an apparent oxymoron the reader is introduced to the interesting role of metal ions in particular biological processes, therefore blurring the conventional limits between inorganic(dead)/organic(living) matter. Exploring the relatively new field of Bioinorganic Chemistry, this book contains an initial approach towards the study of different chemical interactions of platinum(II) and palladium (II)ions with essential biological substrates such as nucleobases and aminoacids, the basic components of DNA/RNA and proteins respectively. An extension of model systems towards more relevant cases is also covered in this book with potential insights into the mechanism of anti-tumoral/anti-viral metal chemotherapeutics. This work is of interest particularly to chemists, biochemists, medicinal chemists and molecular biologists.
