The oxidation-reduction potentials of electron transfer proteins determine the driving forces for their electron transfer reactions. Although the type of redox site determines the intrinsic energy required to add or remove an electron, the electrostatic interaction energy between the redox site and its surrounding environment can greatly shift the redox(More)
The reduction potentials of electron transfer proteins are critically determined by the degree of burial of the redox site within the protein and the degree of permanent polarization of the polypeptide around the redox site. Although continuum electrostatics calculations of protein structures can predict the net effect of these factors, quantifying each(More)
The reduction potential of an electron transfer protein is one of its most important functional characteristics. Although the type of redox site and the protein fold are the major determinants of the reduction potential of a redox-active protein, its amino acid sequence may tune the reduction potential as well. Thus, homologous proteins can often be divided(More)
