Mo K-edge X-ray absorption spectroscopy has been used to probe as-isolated structures of the MOSC family proteins pmARC-1 and HMCS-CT. The Mo K-edge near-edge spectrum of HMCS-CT is shifted ~2.5 eV to lower energy compared to the pmARC-1 spectrum, which indicates that as-isolated HMCS-CT is in a more reduced state than pmARC-1. Extended X-ray absorption(More)
A combination of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and computational approaches has provided insight into the nature of the reaction coordinate for the one-electron reduction of nitrite by the mitochondrial amidoxime reducing component (mARC) enzyme. The results show that a paramagnetic Mo(V) species is generated when reduced enzyme is(More)
Formate dehydrogenases (FDHs) are of interest as they are natural catalysts that sequester atmospheric CO2, generating reduced carbon compounds with possible uses as fuel. FDHs activity in Escherichia coli strictly requires the sulphurtransferase EcFdhD, which likely transfers sulphur from IscS to the molybdenum cofactor (Mo-bisPGD) of FDHs. Here we show(More)
