The binding stoichiometry (Cu(mmol)/DNAmol base) was determined and in an attempt to clarify the binding mode, EPR and CD experiments were performed. All the studied complexes interactedwith DNA, in a more selective way than [Cu(H2O)6]2+, being the [Cu(ala-phe)] the complex with the highest interaction. The EPR experiments suggested that the monomeric species formed in solution were coordinated through a nitrogen atom of the DNA bases (inner-sphere binding) and the CD studies showed structural changes upon the DNA–complex interaction. Besides, the ratio Cu(mmol)/DNAmol base obtained by the binding stoichiometry experiments was close to that found by EPR and CD determinations. The effect on cell proliferation determined by the crystal violet bioassay on UMR106 rat osteosarcoma- derived cells showed that the [Cu(ala-phe)] complex exerted an antiproliferative action against this tumor line.
