Membrane-disrupting iridium(iii) oligocationic organometallopeptides

Author affiliations


A series of oligoarginine peptide derivatives containing cyclometallated iridium(III) units display remarkable cytotoxicity, comparable to that of cisplatin. In vitro studies with unilamellar vesicles support a membrane-disrupting mechanism of action.
