The interactions of yeast iso-1 cytochrome c with bovine cytochrome c oxidase were studied using cytochrome c variants in which lysines of the binding domain were substituted by alanines. Resonance Raman spectra of the fully oxidized complexes of both proteins reveal structural changes of both the heme c and the hemes a and a3. The structural changes in(More)
In general, mutation of the phylogenetically conserved residue Phe82 in yeast iso-1-cytochrome c destabilizes the native conformation of the protein by facilitating the ligand exchange reactions that are associated with the alkaline conformational transitions of the ferricytochrome. Of the Phe82 variants surveyed thus far, Phe82Trp is unique in that it(More)
Electrostatically stabilized complexes of fully oxidized cytochrome c oxidase from Paracoccus denitrificans and horse heart cytochrome c were studied by resonance Raman spectroscopy. The experiments were carried out with the wild-type oxidase and a variant in which a negatively charged amino acid in the binding domain (D257) is replaced by an asparagine. It(More)
The integral quinol oxidase complex of Sulfolobus acidocaldarius (DSM 639) was investigated by resonance Raman spectroscopy. The complex includes four heme a groups which constitute two functional entities, a587 and aa3, containing two low-spin hemes and a low-spin as well as a high-spin heme, respectively. RR spectra were obtained from the fully oxidized(More)
The catalytic CVD synthesis, using propyne as carbon precursor and Fe(NO3)3 as catalyst precursor inside porous alumina, gives carbon nanotube (CNT) bags in a well-arranged two-dimensional order. The tubes have the morphology of bags or fibers, since they are completely filled with smaller helicoidal CNTs. This morphology has so far not been reported for(More)
