The crystal structure of recombinant pea cytosolic ascorbate peroxidase has been refined to an R = 0.19 for data between 8.0 and 2.2 A resolution and magnitude of F > or = 2 sigma(magnitude of F). The refined model consists of four ascorbate peroxidase monomers consisting of 249 residues per monomer assembled into two homodimers, with one heme group per(More)
An Escherichia coli expression system has been developed for pea cytosolic ascorbate peroxidase (APX). The enzyme was expressed as a fusion product with the E. coli maltose-binding protein for rapid, affinity chromatography purification. Recombinant ascorbate peroxidase (rAPX) was purified by tryptic digestion to separate the maltose-binding protein from(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine the acute-phase central hemodynamic and respiratory effects of raw, filtered, filtered and boiled, and meconium-containing amniotic fluid. STUDY DESIGN Pregnant goats (Capra hircus) in the last one third of pregnancy were given freshly collected autologous amniotic fluid in a volume of 2.5 ml/kg of body weight.(More)
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy has been used to analyze the ascorbate peroxidase Fe3+ resting state and to compare the reaction product between the enzyme and H2O2, compound I, with that of cytochrome c peroxidase. Because ascorbate peroxidase has a Trp residue in the proximal heme pocket at the same location as the Trp191 compound I(More)
The crystal structures of cytochrome c peroxidase and ascorbate peroxidase are very similar, including the active site architecture. Both peroxidases have a tryptophan residue, designated the proximal Trp, located directly adjacent to the proximal histidine heme ligand. During the catalytic cycle, the proximal Trp in cytochrome c peroxidase is oxidized to a(More)
