Issue 6 of Metallomics is now online for you to look at. This months issue features nanopore analysis, pharmacology, Pt complexes and more. Take a look while the articles are free to read.
On the front cover is a colourful image from Greece, where S. K. Hadjikakou from the University of Ioannina and colleagues have been working with mixed ligand-silver(I) complexes with anti-inflammatory agents.
Mixed ligand–silver(I) complexes with anti-inflammatory agents which can bind to lipoxygenase and calf-thymus DNA, modulating their function and inducing apoptosis
C. N. Banti, A. D. Giannoulis, N. Kourkoumelis, A. M. Owczarzak, M. Poyraz, M. Kubicki, K. Charalabopoulos and S. K. Hadjikakou
Metallomics, 2012, 4, 545-560
The inside front cover features research from the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the USA. Guillaume Ballihaut and colleagues have been studying the different forms of selenoprotein P, a rather unique protein in the human body responsible for the transport and distribution of the essential trace element selenium.
Multiple forms of selenoprotein P in a candidate human plasma standard reference material
Guillaume Ballihaut, Lisa E. Kilpatrick, Eric L. Kilpatrick and W. Clay Davis
