Inorganic nitrate and nitrite from endogenous or dietary sources are metabolized in vivo to nitric oxide (NO) and other bioactive nitrogen oxides. The nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway is emerging as an important mediator of blood flow regulation, cell signaling, energetics and tissue responses to hypoxia. The latest advances in our understanding of the… (More)
Clostridium difficile is a spore-forming obligate anaerobe that can remain viable for extended periods, even in the presence of antibiotics, which contributes to the persistence of this bacterium as a human pathogen during host-to-host transmission and in hospital environments. We examined the structure and function of a gene product with the locus tag… (More)
The title compound, [Fe(C64H64N8O4)Cl], is a five-coordinate square-pyramidal porphyrin complex with a chloride ion in the axial position, being coordinated from the protected side of the porphyrin; the Fe(III) atom is displaced by 0.474 (5) Å from the 24-atom mean plane of the porphyrin core towards the chloride. The porphyrin moiety is a 'picket-fence'… (More)
The title compound, C20H10F12N4O4S2, is an organic diaryl di-sulfide compound with tri-fluoro-acetamide substituents at the ortho-positions of each benzene ring. There are two mol-ecules (labeled A and B) in the asymmetric unit. The F atoms of three of the -CF3 groups exhibit rotational disorder over two positions each. The S-S bond distances are 2.0914 (7)… (More)
The title compound, [Fe(C44H28N4)(C4H6N2)2]·2C4H6N2, is a six-coordinate Fe(II)-porphyrinate complex with the metal located on a center of inversion and coordinated by two axial 1-methyl-imidazole ligands; the complex crystallizes as a 1-methyl-imidazole disolvate. The 1-methyl-imidazole group bonded to the Fe(II) atom [occupancy ratio 0.789 (4):0.211 (4)]… (More)
The solvated title compound, [Fe(C44H28N4)(C4H6N2)(C7H7NO)]·CH2Cl2, is a porphyrin complex containing an octahedrally coordinated Fe(II) atom with 1-methylimidazole [Fe-N = 2.0651 (17) Å] and o-nitro-sotoluene ligands at the axial positions. The o-nitro-sotoluene ligand is N-bound to iron(II) [Fe-N = 1.8406 (18)Å and Fe-N-O = 122.54 (14)°]. The axial N-Fe-N… (More)
The title compound, [Fe(C6HF4O)(C48H36N4O4)]·C6H12, represents a five-coordinate iron(III) porphyrin complex in a square-pyramidal geometry with a tetra-fluoro-phenolate anion as the axial ligand. The Fe(III) atom is displaced by 0.364 (2) Å from the 24-atom mean plane of the porphyrinate ring towards the tetra-fluoro phenolate anion. The average Fe-N… (More)
The six-coordinate compounds, (T(p-OMe)PP)Ru(NO)(OC6HF4) and (T(p-OMe)PP)Ru(NO)(OC(=O)CF3) have been prepared and characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy, electrochemistry and IR spectroelectrochemistry, and by X-ray crystallography. These compounds undergo macrocycle-centered oxidations, and loss of axial ligands upon reduction.
The 1.70 Å-resolution X-ray crystal structure of the green pigment occasionally present in nitrite-cured meat reveals a regiospecific nitration of the heme at the 2-vinyl position; the regiospecificity is favored on steric grounds, and results in movement of the 2-nitrovinyl moiety into the plane of the 24-atom heme macrocycle.
The title compound, [Fe(NO)(2)(C(18)H(12)F(3)P)(2)]·CHCl(3), belongs to the family of metal dinitrosyl compounds with the general formula Fe(NO)(2)(L)(x), referred to collectively as 'dinitrosyl iron compounds' (DNICs). Herein we report the structure of a dinitrosyl iron diphosphane complex, (Fe(NO)(2)L(2), with L = P(C(6)H(4)-p-F)(3). The structure… (More)
