A stopped-flow investigation of the electron-transfer reaction between oxidized azurin and reduced Pseudomonas aeruginosa cytochrome c-551 oxidase and between reduced azurin and oxidized Ps. aeruginosa cytochrome c-551 oxidase was performed. Electrons leave and enter the oxidase molecule via its haem c component, with the oxidation and reduction of the haem(More)
The binding of CO to ascorbate-reduced Pseudomonas cytochrome oxidase was investigated by static-titration, stopped-flow and flash-photolytic techniques. Static-titration data indicated that the binding process was non-stoicheiometric, with a Hill number of 1.44. Stopped-flow kinetics obtained on the binding of CO to reduced Pseudomonas cytochrome oxidase(More)
The goal of the High-Level Architecture (HLA) is to promote interoperability and reuse between federates. In this context, HLA fills the role of middleware in the domain of distributed simulation. However, in many respects, HLA falls short of its promised potential. These problems can be attributed in part to the HLA standard itself, which leaves a number(More)
The reaction of ascorbate-reduced Pseudomonas cytochrome oxidase with oxygen was studied by using stopped-flow techniques at pH 7.0 and 25 degrees C. The observed time courses were complex, the reaction consisting of three phases. Of these, only the fastest process, with a second-order rate constant of 3.3 X 10(4) M-1.S-1, was dependent on oxygen(More)
This work quantifies the performance benefit of vectorized versions of the ITU-T G.729A and G.723.1 speech coding standards. Architecture-level experimentation with the addition of custom vector instructions indicates a reduction in the dynamic instruction count of the workloads of the order of 51% and 65% respectively at a vector register length of sixteen(More)
The electron-transfer reaction between azurin and the cytochrome oxidase from Pseudomonas aeruginosa was investigated by temperature-jump relaxation in the absence of O2 and in the presence of CO. The results show that: (i) reduced azurin exists in two forms in equilibrium, only one of which is capable of exchanging electrons with the Pseudomonas cytochrome(More)
Stopped-flow kinetics were made of the reaction between ascorbate-reduced Pseudomonas cytochrome oxidase and potassium ferricyanide under both N2 and CO atmospheres. Under N2 three kinetic processes were observed, two being dependent on ferricyanide concentration, with second-order rate constants of 9.6 X 10(4)M-1.s-1 and 1.5 X 10(4)M-1.s-1, whereas the(More)
Some spectra of Pseudomonas cytochrome oxidase are reported, both for comparison with those of other workers and to illustrate the differences between the ascorbate- and dithionite-reduced forms of the enzyme. A spectrum of the reduced enzyme-CO complex, prepared in the absence of added reductants by incubation under CO, is also included.(More)
