Title: Iron chelating ligand for iron overload diseases
Author: G. Ozbolat, A. Tuli

Abstract: Iron overloads are a serious clinical condition in the health of humans and are therefore a key target in drug development. In this study, iron(III) complex of 8-hydroxyquinoline-5 sulphonic acid was synthesized and structurally characterized in its solid state and solution state by FT-IR, UV-Vis, elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility and 1H-NMR. The catalase activities of complex were investigated. It was showed that the complex has the catalase activity. It is suggested that this type of complex may constitute a new and interesting basis for the future search for new and more potential drugs. The electrochemical behaviour patterns of the ligand and complex were examined as supporting electrolyte and platinum electrode for cyclic voltammetry. The electrochemistry studies showed that the reductions in free ligand and complex take place differently.The cytotoxicity was evaluated by MTT assay. The complex exhibited a very high cytotoxic activity and showed a cytotoxic effect that was much better than that of the ligand.The observed cytotoxicity could be pursued to obtain a potential drug. These results indicate that using the 8-hydroxyquinoline-5 sulphonic acid for this aim in further studies is appropriate (Tab. 1, Fig. 4, Ref. 18). Text in PDF www.elis.sk.
