We have studied a low-molecular-weight (Mr = 27,200) sulfite reductase from Desulfovibrio vulgaris (Hildenborough, NCIB 8303) with Mössbauer, EPR, and chemical techniques. This sulfite reductase was found to contain one siroheme and one [4Fe-4S] cluster. As purified, the siroheme is low-spin ferric (S = 1/2) which exhibits characteristic EPR resonances at g(More)
Siroheme has been extracted from sulfite reductases and its properties in aqueous solution have been investigated by optical absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), and magnetic circular dichroism (MDC) spectroscopy. The absorption spectrum of siroheme exhibits a marked pH dependence, and two pK values, 4.2 and 9.0, were determined by pH(More)
The cooperativity effects between the O/N-H∙∙∙O hydrogen-bonding and Na⁺∙∙∙O cation-molecule interactions in the 1: 2 (Na⁺: N-(Hydroxymethyl)acetamide) systems were investigated at the B3LYP/6-311++G**, MP2(full)/6-311++G** and MP2(full)/aug-cc-pvtz levels. The thermodynamic cooperativity calculations were also carried out for two pathways of the(More)
A dissimilatory bisulfite reductase has been purified from a thermophilic sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio thermophilus (DSM 1276) and studied by EPR and optical spectroscopic techniques. The visible spectrum of the purified bisulfite reductase exhibits absorption maxima at 578.5, 392.5 and 281 nm with a weak band around 700 nm. Photoreduction of(More)
