Nitric oxide (NO) has a critical role in several physiological and pathophysiological processes. In this paper, the reactions of the nitrosyl complexes of [Ru(bpy)(2)L(NO)](n+) type, where L = SO(3)(2-) and imidazole and bpy = 2,2'-bipiridine, with cysteine and glutathione were studied. The reactions with cysteine and glutathione occurred through the(More)
O composto 5-(4-pyridinyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiol (Hpyt) adsorve espontaneamente sobre ouro formando SAMs (“Self-Assembled Monolayers”) que, de acordo com os resultados eletroquímicos e de STM (“Scanning Tunneling Microscopy”), contêm poros através dos quais as moléculas dos complexos [Fe(CN) 6 ] e [Ru(NH 3 ) 6 ] acessam a superfície livre de modificação.(More)
Porous polymer networks (PPNs) are attractive materials for capacitive energy storage because they offer high surface areas for increased double-layer capacitance, open structures for rapid ion transport, and redox-active moieties that enable faradaic (pseudocapacitive) energy storage. Here we demonstrate a new attractive feature of PPNs--the ability of(More)
Quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), surface plasmon resonance (SPR), and electrochemistry techniques were used to study the electron-transfer (ET) reaction of cytochrome c (Cyt c) on gold surfaces modified with thionicotinamide, thioisonicotinamide, 4-mercaptopyridine, 5-(4-pyridyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiol, 5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiol,(More)
For over a decade, tuberculosis (TB) has been the leading cause of death among infectious diseases. Since the 1950s, isoniazid has been used as a front-line drug in the treatment of TB; however, resistant TB strains have limited its use. The major route of isoniazid resistance relies on KatG enzyme disruption, which does not promote an electron transfer(More)
Myoglobin (Mb) has been successfully immobilized on a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of L-cysteine (Cys) on a gold electrode, Au/Cys. The presence of a pair of well-defined and nearly reversible waves centered at ca. 0.086 V vs Ag/AgCl (pH 6.5) suggests that the native character of Mb heme Fe(III/II) redox couple has been obtained. The formal potential of(More)
Conformational changes associated to sensing mechanisms of heme-based protein sensors are a key molecular event that seems to modulate not only the protein activity but also the potential of the FeIII/II redox couple of the heme domain. In this work, midpoint potentials (Em) assigned to the FeIII/II redox couple of the heme domain of FixL from Rhizobium(More)
The organothiol 4-mercaptopyridine (pyS) has been used extensively as facilitator for the assessment of heterogeneous electron transfer reaction of cytochrome c (cyt c). Its efficiency, however, is strongly affected by the instability of the adlayer due to the C-S bond cleavage. The K(4)[Ru(CN)(5)(pyS)].3H(2)O complex was synthesized and characterized(More)
Tuberculosis has re-emerged as a worldwide threat, which has motivated the development of new drugs. The antituberculosis complex Na3[Fe(CN)5(isoniazid)] (IQG607) in particular is of interest on account of its ability to overcome resistance. IQG607 has the potential for redox-mediated-activation, in which an acylpyridine (isonicotinoyl) radical could be(More)
Complexes of the type {[(pyS)Ru(NH(3))(4)](2)-μ-L}(n), where pyS = 4-mercaptopyridine, L = 4,4'-dithiodipyridine (pySSpy), pyrazine (pz) and 1,4-dicyanobenzene (DCB), and n = +4 and +5 for fully reduced and mixed-valence complexes, respectively, were synthesized and characterized. Electrochemical data showed that there is electron communication between the(More)
