Kinetics and interactions of molybdenum and iron-sulfur centers in bacterial enzymes of the xanthine oxidase family: mechanistic implications.
TLDR
This new finding that oxidative conditions facilitate decay of the very rapid signal for IsoOr supports the mechanism of substrate turnover proposed by Lowe, Richards, and Bray. Expand
Comparative EPR and redox studies of three prokaryotic enzymes of the xanthine oxidase family: quinoline 2-oxidoreductase, quinaldine 4-oxidase, and isoquinoline 1-oxidoreductase.
TLDR
The very rapid Mo(V) species was detected in small amounts upon reduction with substrates in quinoline 2-oxidoreductase and quinaldine 4-xidase, but showed a different kinetic behavior with considerable EPR intensities in isoquinoline 1-oxidsductase. Expand
Xanthine dehydrogenase from Pseudomonas putida 86: specificity, oxidation-reduction potentials of its redox-active centers, and first EPR characterization.
TLDR
The EPR features of the redox-active centers of P. putida XDH are very similar to those of eukaryotic XDHs/xanthine oxidases, suggesting that the environment of each center and their functionality are analogous in these enzymes. Expand
Probing magnetic properties of the reduced [2Fe-2S] cluster of the ferredoxin from Arthrospira platensis by 1H ENDOR spectroscopy
TLDR
The analysis confirmed the existence of a single paramagnetic species with iron valence states II and III connected uniquely to the cluster irons, as well as identifying the Fe(III) ion as being coordinated to the cysteine ligands Cys49 and Cys79. Expand
