    ABSTRACT: A new mixed ligand-silver(I) complex of formula [Ag(tpp)(2)(p-Hbza)] (1) (p-HbzaH = 4-hydroxybenzoic acid and tpp = triphenylphosphine) has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, mp, vibrational spectroscopy (mid- and far-FT-IR), (1)H-NMR, UV-vis, ESI-MS spectroscopic techniques and X-ray crystallography. Complex 1 and the already known mixed ligand-silver(I) complexes of formulae [Ag(tpp)(2)(salH)] (2) (salH(2) = salicylic acid or 2-hydroxy-benzoic acid) and {[Ag(tpp)(3)(asp)](dmf)} (3) (aspH = o-acetylsalicylic acid) were used for the clarification of the cytostatic activity mechanism. Thus, 1-3 were tested for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against leiomyosarcoma (LMS) and human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cells with trypan blue and Thiazolyl Blue Tetrazolium Bromide (MTT) assays. For both cell lines, complexes 1-3 were found to be more active than cisplatin. Due to the morphology of the LMS cells after incubation with 1-3, the type of cell death was evaluated by flow cytometry assay and DNA fragmentation. The results show that LMS cells undergo programmed cell death (apoptosis). DNA binding tests indicate the ability of complexes 1-3 to modify the activity of the cells. The binding constants of 1-3 towards calf-thymus DNA (CT-DNA) ((27.7 ± 7.9) × 10(4) (1), (13.3 ± 6.5) × 10(4) (2) and (11 ± 2.8) × 10(4) (3) M(-1)) indicate strong interaction. Moreover, the influence of complexes 1-3 on the catalytic peroxidation of linoleic acid to hydroperoxylinoleic acid by the enzyme lipoxygenase (LOX) was kinetically studied. Finally, docking studies on DNA binding interactions were performed.

    ABSTRACT: wo new mixed ligand silver(I) complexes of formulae {[Ag(tpp) 3(asp)](dmf)} (1) (aspH = o-acetylsalicylic acid and tpp = triphenylphosphine) and [Ag(tpp)2(o-Hbza)] (2) (o-HbzaH = o-hydroxy-benzoic acid) were synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, spectroscopic techniques and X-ray crystallography at ambient conditions. Three phosphorus and one carboxylic oxygen atoms from a de-protonated aspirin ligand in complex 1 and two phosphorus and two carboxylic oxygen atoms from a chelating o-Hbza anion in complex 2 form a tetrahedral geometry around Ag(I) ions in both complexes. Complexes 1 and 2 and the silver(I) nitrate, tpp, aspNa and o-HbzaH were tested for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against leiomyosarcoma cells (LMS), human breast adenocarcinoma cells (MCF-7) and normal human fetal lung fibroblasts (MRC-5) cells with Thiazolyl Blue Tetrazolium Bromide (MTT) assay. For both cell lines 1 and 2 were found to be more active than cisplatin. Additionally, 1 and 2 exhibit lower activity on cell growth proliferation of MRC-5 cells. The type of LMS cell death caused by 1 and 2 were evaluated in vitro by use of flow cytometry assay. The results show that at concentrations of 1.5 and 1.9 μΜ of complex 1, 44.1% and 69.4%, respectively of LMS cells undergo programmed cell death (apoptosis). When LMS cells were treated with 1.6 and 2.3 μM of 2, LMS cells death was by 29.6% and 81.3%, respectively apoptotic. Finally, the influence of the complexes 1 and 2, upon the catalytic peroxidation of linoleic acid to hydroperoxylinoleic acid by the enzyme lipoxygenase (LOX) was kinetically and theoretically studied. The binding of 1 and 2 towards LOX was also investigated by Saturation Transfer Difference (STD) 1H NMR experiments.
