The structure of Chromatium high potential iron protein (HiPIP) has been refined by semiautomatic Fo-Fc (observed minus calculated structure amplitude Fourier methods to a convential R index, R=sum of the absolute value of Fo-Fc divided by the sum of Fo, of 24.7% for a model in which bond distances and angles are constrained to standard values. Bond length(More)
1. A detailed study of cytochrome C oxidse activity with Keilin-Hartree particles and purified beef heart enzyme, at low ionic strength and low cytochrome C concentrations, showed biphasic kinetics with apparent Km1 = 5 x 10(-8) M, and apparent Km2 = 0.35 to 1.0 x 10(-6) M. Direct binding studies with purified oxidase, phospholipid-containing as well as(More)
A central eight-stranded beta-pleated sheet is the main feature of the polypeptide backbone folding in dihydrofolate reductase. The innermost four strands and two bridging helices are geometrically similar to but are connected in a different way from those in the dinucleotide binding domains found in nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide-linked dehydrogenases.(More)
We have studied the structures of adducts formed between subtilisin BPN' and both benzeneboronic acid and 2-phenylethaneboronic acid by x-ray diffraction techniques. Electron density and difference maps at 2.5 A resolution were computed with phases calculated from a partially refined structure of the native enzyme (R = 0.23 at 2.0 A). Both adducts contain a(More)
