Abstract

5- and 6-Uracilmethylphosphonate (5Umpa(2-) and 6Umpa(2-)) as acyclic nucleotide analogues are in the focus of anticancer and antiviral research. Connected metabolic reactions involve metal ions; therefore, we determined the stability constants of M(Umpa) complexes (M(2+)=Mg(2+), Ca(2+), Mn(2+), Co(2+), Cu(2+), Zn(2+), or Cd(2+)). However, the coordination chemistry of these Umpa species is also of interest in its own right, for example, the phosphonate-coordinated M(2+) interacts with (C4)O to form seven-membered chelates with 5Umpa(2-), thus leading to intramolecular equilibria between open (op) and closed (cl) isomers. No such interaction occurs with 6Umpa(2-). In both M(Umpa) series deprotonation of the uracil residue leads to the formation of M(Umpa-H)(-) complexes at higher pH values. Their stability was evaluated by taking into account the fact that the uracilate residue can bind metal ions to give M(2)(Umpa-H)(+) species. This has led to two further important insights: 1) In M(6Umpa-H)-cl the H(+) is released from (N1)H, giving rise to six-membered chelates (degrees of formation of ca. 90 to 99.9 % with Mn(2+), Co(2+), Cu(2+), Zn(2+), or Cd(2+)). 2) In M(5Umpa-H)$-cl the (N3)H is deprotonated, leading to a higher stability of the seven-membered chelates involving (C4)O (even Mg(2+) and Ca(2+) chelates are formed up to approximately 50 %). In both instances the M(Umpa-H)-op species led to the formation of M(2)(Umpa-H)(+) complexes that have one M(2+) at the phosphonate and one at the (N3)(-) (plus carbonyl) site; this proves that nucleotides can bind metal ions independently at the phosphate and the nucleobase residues. X-ray structural analyses of 6Umpa derivatives show that in diesters the phosphonate group is turned away from the uracil residue, whereas in H(2)(6Umpa) the orientation is such that upon deprotonation in aqueous solution a strong hydrogen bond is formed between (N1)H and PO(3) (2-); replacement of the hydro gen with M(2+) gives the M(6Umpa-H)-cl chelates mentioned.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
