Hen-egg-white lysozyme (HEWL) is specifically cleaved at the Trp28-Val29 and Asn44-Arg45 peptide bonds in the presence of a Keggin-type [Ce(α-PW(11)O(39))(2)](10-) polyoxometalate (POM; 1) at pH 7.4 and 37 °C. The reactivity of 1 towards a range of dipeptides was also examined and the calculated reaction rates were comparable to those observed for the(More)
SDS-PAGE/Edman degradation and HPLC MS/MS showed that zirconium(IV)-substituted Lindqvist-, Keggin-, and Wells-Dawson-type polyoxometalates (POMs) selectively hydrolyze the protein myoglobin at Asp-X peptide bonds under mildly acidic and neutral conditions. This transformation is the first example of highly sequence selective protein hydrolysis by POMs, a(More)
Detailed kinetic studies on the hydrolysis of glycylserine (Gly-Ser) and glycylglycine (Gly-Gly) in the presence of the dimeric zirconium(IV)-substituted Keggin type polyoxometalate (Et2NH2)8[{α-PW11O39Zr(μ-OH)(H2O)}2]·7H2O (1) were performed by a combination of (1)H, (13)C and (31)P NMR spectroscopy. The observed rate constants for the hydrolysis of(More)
Detailed kinetic studies on the hydrolysis of glycylglycine (Gly-Gly) in the presence of the dimeric tetrazirconium(IV)-substituted Wells-Dawson-type polyoxometalate Na14[Zr4(P2W16O59)2(μ3-O)2(OH)2(H2O)4] · 57H2O (1) were performed by a combination of (1)H, (13)C, and (31)P NMR spectroscopies. The catalyst was shown to be stable under a broad range of(More)
Peptide bond hydrolysis of several peptides with a Gly-X sequence (X = Gly, Ala, Val, Leu, Ile, Phe) catalyzed by a dimeric Zr(IV)-substituted Keggin type polyoxometalate (POM), (Et2NH2)8[{α-PW11O39Zr(μ-OH)(H2O)}2]·7H2O (1), was studied by means of kinetic experiments and (1)H NMR spectroscopy. The observed rate of peptide bond hydrolysis was found to(More)
A recent study [Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, 54, 7391-7394] has shown that horse heart myoglobin (HHM) is selectively hydrolyzed by a range of zirconium(IV)-substituted polyoxometalates (POMs) under mild conditions. In this study, the molecular interactions between the Zr-POM catalysts and HHM are investigated by using a range of complementary techniques,(More)
