Structures and Reactivities of Complexes Between Bivalent Cations and Nucleotides

Conference paper


Investigations on structural data of ternary enzyme-Atp-metal ion complexes have recently been published by Cohn (1). A refinement of such structural data would be facilitated by a thorough investigation of the coordination chemistry of the respective binary nucleotide-metal ion complexes; i.e. of the question: How and to what extent do the different parts of the nucleotide ligands — N-heterocyclic and phosphate moieties — interact with a metal ion, if a binary complex is formed in aqueous solution?
