The heterogeneous electron-transfer (ET) reaction of cytochrome c (Cyt-c) electrostatically or covalently immobilized on electrodes coated with self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of omega-functionalized alkanethiols is analyzed by surface-enhanced resonance Raman (SERR) spectroscopy and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Electrostatically bound Cyt-c on(More)
Nonexponential distance dependence of the apparent electron-transfer (ET) rate has been reported for a variety of redox proteins immobilized on biocompatible electrodes, thus posing a physicochemical challenge of possible physiological relevance. We have recently proposed that this behavior may arise not only from the structural and dynamical complexity of(More)
Activation of the corrinoid [Fe-S] protein (CoFeSP), involved in reductive CO(2) conversion, requires the reduction of the Co(II) center by the [Fe-S] protein RACo, which according to the reduction potentials of the two proteins would correspond to an uphill electron transfer. In our resonance Raman spectroscopic work, we demonstrate that, as a(More)
Phosphorylation of tyrosine 48 of cytochrome c is related to a wide range of human diseases due to the pleiotropic role of the heme-protein in cell life and death. However, the structural conformation and physicochemical properties of phosphorylated cytochrome c are difficult to study as its yield from cell extracts is very low and its kinase remains(More)
