The 170MHZ 1 H n.m.r. spectra of the Cu(II)/Zn(II), Cu(I)/Zn(II) and apo- forms of human erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (EC 1.15.1.1) are reported. Resonances are assigned to the C-2 and C-4 protons of histidine residues in the active site, and it is suggested that five or six histidine residues serve as ligands to the metal ions in each subunit of the(More)
The 270-MHz 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of Cu(II), Cu(I), and apo-stellacyanin are reported and compared. The data indicate that little conformational change occurs on reduction of the protein or on removing the copper ion. In the aromatic region of the spectra of the holoprotein, resonances associated with two freely titrating histidines are(More)
A new reaction mechanism is proposed for the reaction of thianthrene cation radical perchlorate (Th·ClO4) and tert-butyl peroxide in acetonitrile at room temperature on the basis of experimental and theoretical results. Rapid C-O bond rupture instead of O-O bond cleavage was observed by a good peroxy radical trapping agent, thianthrene cation radical.(More)
