A dioxovanadium(V) complex of vitamin-B6 Schiff base VO2L] (1) (where H2L center dot HCl is 3-hydroxy-5-(hydroxymethyl)-4-(2-hydroxyphenypimino)methyl)-2-methylpyri din-l-ium chloride) has been prepared and structurally characterized. Its photo-induced cytotoxicity and mechanism of cell death has been studied. Single crystal X-ray structure shows five-coordinate square-pyramidal geometry of the complex having the dianionic O,N,O-donor tridentate vitamin-B6 Schiff base and two cis-oriented oxo ligands bound to V(V). DFT study shows the HOMO located on the amino-phenolic moiety, while the LUMO is on the protonated aromatic unit, i.e., the pyridiniumphenolate moiety. Vitamin-B6 transporting membrane carrier (VTC) pathway seems to be responsible for the higher cellular uptake and activity of the complex into the cervical HeLa and breast cancer MCF-7 cells in preference to the normal embryonic fibroblast 3T3 cells. The complex exhibits reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediated apoptotic photocytotoxicity in visible light of 400-700 nm in the cancer cells (IC50: similar to 16 mu M), while being essentially non-toxic in the dark. Alkaline Comet assay shows damage of the nuclear DNA.
