Interaction of Amino Acids with Transition Metal Ions
The complexation of transition metal ions with different amino acids have been studied during the last few decades. The metal-amino acids complexation is an important area of study as they can be used as representative model systems to understand the metal-protein interaction in biological systems. These complexes play a key role in the reactivity and property of protein. The study of thermodynamic parameters like DGo, DHo, DSo,...etc. will help to investigate the driving forces that lead to the formation of metal-amino acid complexes in biological systems. This work deals with a brief spectrophotometric study on the interaction of few transition metal ions of copper, nickel and cobalt with the amino acids L-Threonine, L-Proline and L-Lysine in aqueous solution. UV-Visible spectroscopy was used for the investigation.
