Carcinogenicity of certain nickel compounds has been confirmed by the combination of epidemiological evidence in humans and carcinogenesis bioassays in animals. We have previously reported that nickel is a potent suppressor of histone H4 acetylation in both yeast and mammalian cells. We have recently carried out a study on the coordination ability of Ni(I1) to the N-terminal tail of histone H4 by the use of multidimensional NMR techniques (ID, 2D TOCSY and NOESY spectra) [I]. The data thus collected allowed us to calculate a structural model for the square planar complex formed by the Ni(I1) ion and ow peptide, pointing out the important structural changes induced by nickel coordination on the peptide.
