Title

Hormone Anchored Metal Complexes 1: Synthesis, Structure, Spectroscopy and in vitro Antitumor Activity of Testosterone Acetate: Thiosemicarbazone and its Metal Complexes

Abstract

Testosterone acetate thiosemicarbazone (TATSC, 17-β-hydroxyandrost-4-one acetate thiosemicarbazone) was synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray structure determination. The copper and platinum complexes of this steroid derivative were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopy and electrochemiatry. The in vitro activity of these compounds against human breast cancer cell line MCF-7 was tested. The highest activity was found for the [Pt(TATSC)Cl 2] followed by [Cu(TATSC)Cl 2] and the ligand in compariosn with cisplatin.
