The copper(II) complexing ability and the biological activity of β-casomorphin-7 tetrazole analogues have been investigated. Potentiometric and spectroscopic (UV–Vis, CD and EPR) studies have been used to establish the thermodynamic stability, speciation and structure of Cu(II) complexes with YP-ψ(CN4)-FPGPI-NH2 (1), YPF-ψ(CN4)-AGPI-NH2 (2) and YPFP-ψ(CN4)-GPI-NH2 (3). Comparison of the binding ability of the tetrazole analogues reveals that the most effective ligand for copper(II) is YPF-ψ(CN4)-AGPI-NH2. The effectiveness of this ligand comes from its particular conformation suited for the Cu(II) 2N co-ordination mode in the physiological pH region. The ability of casomorphin tetrazole analogues to activate rat mast cells to histamine release in vitro in the presence of copper(II) has been studied.
