The triplet-excited state of benzophenone and the singlet-excited state of 2,3-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-2-ene (Fluorazophore-P) have been employed as kinetic probes to obtain information on the antioxidant activity of the skin and eye pigment melanin and its biogenetic precursors 5,6-dihydroxyindole (DHI) and 5,6-dihydroxyindole-2-carboxylic acid (DHICA). The(More)
The substrate and active site residues of the low-spin hydroxide complex of the protohemin complex of Neisseria meningitidis heme oxygenase (NmHO) have been assigned by saturation transfer between the hydroxide and previously characterized aquo complex. The available dipolar shifts allowed the quantitation of both the orientation and anisotropy of the(More)
The solution structures of the beta-cyclodextrin complexes between 2,3-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]oct-2-ene (1) and its 1-isopropyl-4-methyl derivative 2 have been investigated by means of induced circular dichroism (ICD) and MM3-92 force-field calculations, which considered the effect of solvation within a continuum approximation. Of primary interest was the(More)
