Neuronal PAS protein 2 (NPAS2), a heme-binding transcriptional regulatory factor, is involved in circadian rhythms. Period homologue (Per) is another important transcriptional regulatory factor that binds to cryptochrome (Cry). The resultant Per/Cry heterodimer interacts with the NPAS2/BMAL1 heterodimer to inhibit the transcription of Per and Cry. Previous(More)
Heme-regulated eIF2alpha kinase (HRI) is an important enzyme that modulates protein synthesis during cellular emergency/stress conditions, such as heme deficiency in red cells. It is essential to identify the heme axial ligand(s) and/or binding sites to establish the heme regulation mechanism of HRI. Previous reports suggest that a His residue in the(More)
EPR spectra of the excited quartet and doublet molecular states of (tetraphenylporphinato)zinc(II) covalently bounded to 3-(N-nitronyl-notroxide) pyridine stable radical are modeled in terms of the spin-Hamiltonian given by the sum of the contributions from the radical and triplet moieties, and the interaction between them. The later is represented by(More)
The substituent effect on the g-tensor of polycrystalline 2,6-di-tert-butyl phenoxyl radical derivatives diluted in diamagnetic crystals was investigated using multifrequency ESR spectroscopy and DFT calculations. It was revealed that the g-tensors of the series of phenoxyl radical derivatives essentially have an orthorhombic symmetry. For some radicals,(More)
