1. [4-13C]Nicotinate was synthesised and used to support the growth of a nicotinate auxotrophic mutant of Pseudomonas putida. 13C-NMR spectroscopy of the isolated urocanase confirmed the efficient incorporation of 13C into C4 of the nicotinamide ring of the tightly bound NAD+ cofactor. 2. beta-[( 2'-13C]Imidazol-4-yl)propionate was synthesised according to(More)
1. Urocanase, purified by classical methods [Keul, V., Kaeppeli, F., Ghosh, C., Krebs, T., Robinson, J. A. and Rétey, J. (1979) J. Biol. Chem. 254, 843-851] from Pseudomonas putida was submitted to high-performance liquid chromatography on a TSK-DEAE column. The enzyme was eluted in three resolved peaks (A, B and C) exhibiting specific activities of 3.4(More)
The reference-geometry Harris-Foulkes (RGHF) approach has been used to model high-order terms within the expansion of multi-dimensional potential energy surfaces (PES) as needed within the calculation of accurate vibrational frequencies beyond the harmonic approximation. The key step of this method is a localization of the electron density to the atoms of(More)
Al-F bonds are among the most stable σ bonds known, exhibiting an even higher bond energy than Si-F bonds. Despite a stability advantage and a potentially high Lewis acidity of Al-F complexes, they have not been described as structurally defined catalysts for enantioselective reactions. We show that Al-F salen complexes with appended ammonium moieties give(More)
