BACKGROUND The acceptance rate of non-mother English tongue authors is generally a lot lower than for native English tongue authors. Obviously the scientific quality of an article is the principal reason for publication. However, is editorial rejection purely on scientific grounds? English mother tongue writers publish more than non mother-tongue(More)
We report here the first non-Kramers (NK) ESEEM and ENDOR study of a mononuclear NK center, presenting extensive parallel-mode ESEEM and ENDOR measurements on the S(t) = 2 ferrous center of [Fe(II)ethylenediamine-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetato](2-); [Fe(II)EDTA)](2-). The results disclose an anomalous equivalence of the experimental patterns produced by the two(More)
Kinetic and structural studies have shown that peroxidases are capable of the oxidation of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (2,4,6-TCP) to 2,6-dichloro-1,4-benzoquinone (2,6-DCQ). Further reactions of 2,6-DCQ in the presence of H(2)O(2) and OH(-) yield 2,6-dichloro-3-hydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone (2,6-DCQOH). The reactions of 2,6-DCQ have been monitored spectroscopically(More)
The peroxidase oxidation of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (TCP) has been clearly shown to result in 2,6-dichloro-1,4-benzoquinone (DCQ). DCQ is a 2-electron oxidation product of TCP that has undergone para dechlorination. Many peroxidases show similar oxidation of the substrate, TCP, to yield the quinone, DCQ. Depending on the substrate, peroxidases are thought to(More)
Key features differentiating the coordination environment of the two irons in the mixed-valent (Fe(2+),Fe(3+)) diiron site of Desulfovibrio vulgaris rubrerythrin (Rbr(mv)) were determined by continuous wave (CW) and pulsed ENDOR spectroscopy at 35GHz. (14)N ENDOR evidence indicates that a nitrogen is bound only to the Fe(2+) ion of the mixed-valent site.(More)
