A new arenetelluronic triorganotin ester, namely (Me3Sn)4[o-Me-PhTe(μ-O)(OH)O2)]2 (1) has been prepared by the reaction of o-tolyltelluronic acid and Me3SnCl in the presence of potassium hydroxide. The complex was fully characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR, NMR (1H, 13C, 119Sn) spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. Structure analysis revealed that the complex crystallized as Sn4Te2 units and a 1D linear chain was formed by intermolecular C–H⋯O interactions. Cytotoxic assessments showed that the complex can induce apoptotic cell death via accumulation of ROS, collapse of the MMP and activating caspase-3. The results indicated that ROS is crucial to the cytotoxicity induced by the complex.

Six novel ruthenium(II)– and osmium(II)–arene complexes with three modified indolo[3,2-c]quinolines have been synthesized in situ starting from 2-aminoindoloquinolines and 2-pyridinecarboxaldehyde in the presence of [M(p-cymene)Cl2]2 (M = Ru, Os) in ethanol. All complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, spectroscopic techniques (1H, 13C NMR, IR, UV–vis), and ESI mass spectrometry, while four complexes were investigated by X-ray diffraction. The complexes have been tested for antip...

Abstract The severe toxicity of antitumor organotin (IV) compounds limits their application in clinic, however, the toxic mechanism is still unclear. Di-n-butyl-di-(4-chlorobenzohydroxamato) Tin (IV) (DBDCT), an antitumor agent with high activity and obvious neurotoxicity was chosen as a typical diorganotin (IV) compound to investigate its neurotoxic mechanism using PC12 cells and comprehensive methods. Treatment with DBDCT resulted in a dose- and time-dependent growth inhibition of PC12 cells. ...

Two hybrid compounds comprising an antimetastatic ruthenium–arene fragment tethered to an indazole-3-carboxylic acid derivative that inhibits aerobic glycolysis in cancer cells have been prepared and evaluated in a variety of cancer cell lines, including highly relevant human glioblastoma cells, with an apparent synergistic action between the two components observed.

Despite being disparaged for their malodorous and toxic demeanour, compounds of selenium, a bio-essential element, and tellurium, offer possibilities as therapeutic agents. Herein, their potential use as drugs, for example, as anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory agents, etc., will be surveyed along with a summary of the established biological functions of selenium. The natural biological functions of tellurium remain to be discovered.

Abstract Tellurium is a rare element, which has been regarded as a toxic, non-essential trace element; its biological role, if any, has not been clearly established to date. The investigation of therapeutic activities of tellurium compounds is rather limited in the literature, despite the relative abundance of tellurium in the human body. Nevertheless, the varied activities of tellurium agents in both malignant and normal cells are extremely exciting, though very complex. Not surprisingly, an in...

In this report, we have tested the cytotoxicity of two organotin (OT) compounds by flow cytometry on a panel of immortalized cancer cell lines of human and murine origin. Although the OT compounds exhibited varying levels of cytotoxicity, diphenylmethyltin chloride was more toxic than 1,4-bis (diphenylchlorostannyl)p-xylene on all cell lines tested. The OT compounds were found to be highly cytotoxic to lymphoma cell lines with lower toxicity toward the HeLa cervical cancer cell line. In order to...

The organotin trimethyltin (TMT) is well known to cause neuronal damage in the central nervous system. To elucidate the mechanisms underlying the toxicity of TMT toward neurons, we prepared primary cultures of neurons from the neocortex of mouse embryos. A continuous exposure to TMT produced a decrease in cell viability as well as an increase in the number of cells with nuclear condensation/shrinkage at the exposure time window up to 24 hr. In addition to the events at the early time window, lac...

Resistance to cisplatin chemotherapy remains a major hurdle preventing effective treatment of many solid cancers. BAX and BAK are pivotal regulators of the mitochondrial apoptosis pathway, however little is known regarding their regulation in cisplatin resistant cells. Cisplatin induces DNA damage in both sensitive and resistant cells, however the latter exhibits a failure to initiate N-terminal exposure of mitochondrial BAK or mitochondrial SMAC release. Both phenotypes are highly sensitive to ...

The quest for alternative drugs to the well-known cisplatin and its derivatives, which are still used in more than 50% of the treatment regimes for patients suffering from cancer, is highly needed.1,2 Despite their tremendous success, these platinum compounds suffer from two main disadvantages: they are inefficient against platinum-resistant tumors, and they have severe side effects such as nephrotoxicity. The latter drawback is the consequence of the fact that the ultimate target of these drugs...

Abstract This review discusses the syntheses, structures and applications of organotelluroxanes. These compounds have found applications in many areas such as catalysis, oxidation, hydrolysis etc. Weak intermolecular O⋯Te interactions are common features in this class of compounds and play an important role in the aggregation, reactivity and properties of such compounds. However, monomeric species could be isolated by employing bulky groups or intramolecular interactions in the system. The highl...
