Human alpha-synuclein is a 140-amino acid protein of unknown function abundantly expressed in the brain and found in Lewy bodies, a characteristic feature of Parkinson's disease. Alpha-synuclein is random in water under physiological conditions, but the first approximately 100 residues interact with SDS micelles or acidic phospholipid small unilamellar(More)
The high-affinity metal-binding site of isolated F(1)-ATPase from beef heart mitochondria was studied by high-field (HF) continuous wave electron paramagnetic resonance (CW-EPR) and pulsed EPR spectroscopy, using Mn(II) as a paramagnetic probe. The protein F(1) was fully depleted of endogenous Mg(II) and nucleotides [stripped F(1) or MF1(0,0)] and loaded(More)
