The nuclear spin-spin and spin-lattice relaxation times of the C epsilon 1-proton of His-35 and the C delta 2-proton of His-46 of reduced Pseudomonas aeruginosa azurin have been determined at 298 and 320 K and at pH 4.5 and 9.0 at various concentrations of total azurin and in the presence of varying amounts of oxidized azurin. The relaxation times appear(More)
The EXAFS of the K-edge of copper in azurin from Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been measured in solutions of the oxidized and reduced protein, at both low and high pH. Model compounds of known molecular structure, exhibiting Cu-N and Cu-S bonds of varying length, were studied as well. The major shell of the high-pH oxidized azurin EXAFS contains contributions(More)
The proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum of azurin from Alcaligenes denitrificans at pH 6.0 and 309 K is reported. Proton signals from all methionine and histidine residues (among them the copper ligands) have been assigned. The data have been used to study the pH behaviour of His35 and to establish the electron self-exchange rate of the protein.(More)
The X- and Q-band EPR spectra of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (63Cu)azurin and Alcaligenes denitrificans azurin have been measured at pH = 5.2 and 9.2, in the presence and absence of 40% glycerol. The EPR spectra of both proteins could properly be simulated by taking into account a spread in the tetrahedral angle of the copper site. The change in the EPR spectrum(More)
Universities increasingly record lectures and make them available online for students. Though the technology to record these lectures is now solidly implemented and embedded in many institutions, the impact of the usage of recorded lectures on exam performance is not clear. The purpose of the current study is to address the use of recorded lectures in an(More)
The electron self-exchange rate of azurin from Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been measured by proton NMR as a function of temperature under various conditions of pH, buffer and ionic strength. The rate does not appear very sensitive to variations in the latter parameters. Qualitative thermodynamic compensation is observed for the entropy and enthalpy of(More)
