Enzymes fold into unique three-dimensional structures, which underlie their remarkable catalytic properties. The requirement to adopt a stable, folded conformation is likely to contribute to their relatively large size (>10,000 Da). However, much shorter peptides can achieve well-defined conformations through the formation of amyloid fibrils. To test(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) act as the first line of defense against bacterial and viral pathogens by initiating critical defense signals upon dimer activation. The contribution of the transmembrane domain in the dimerization and signaling process has heretofore been overlooked in favor of the extracellular and intracellular domains. As mounting evidence(More)
We recently reported that a computationally designed catalyst nicknamed AlleyCat facilitates C–H proton abstraction in Kemp elimination at neutral pH in a selective and calcium-dependent fashion by a factor of approximately 100,000 (Korendovych et al. in Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 108:6823, 2011). Kemp elimination produced a colored product that can be(More)
The title compound, {[Cu(C(10)H(14)N(4)Se)(2)(H(2)O)](BF(4))(2)·2C(18)H(15)PO·H(2)O}(n), has a polymeric structure where each Cu(II) ion adopts a square-pyramidal coordination constituted by four N atoms of pyrazole moieties in the equatorial plane and an axial O atom of a water mol-ecule. A pair of bis-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl) selenide ligands(More)
The title compound, [Zn(C(10)H(11)N(4)O(2))(2)]·2H(2)O, was prepared by the reaction between Zn(CH(3)COO)(2)·2H(2)O and 2-hydroxy-imino-N'-[1-(2-pyrid-yl)ethyl-idene]propano-hydrazide (Hpop). The central Zn(II) atom has a distorted tetra-gonal-bipyramidal coordination geometry formed by two amide O atoms and four N atoms of two azomethine and two pyridine(More)
In the title compound, {[Cu(C(10)H(14)N(4)Se)(2)(H(2)O)]Cl(2)·H(2)O}(n), the Cu(II) ion, lying on a twofold rotation axis, has a square-pyramidal geometry constituted by four N atoms of pyrazolyl groups in the basal plane and an apical O atom of a water mol-ecule. A pair of bis-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl) selenide ligands bridge the Cu centers into a(More)
Mechanistic studies of H2O2 activation by complexes related to [(BPMEN)Fe(II)(CH3CN)2](2+) with electron-rich pyridines revealed that a new intermediate formed in the presence of acetic acid with a 465 nm visible band can be associated with an unusual g = 2.7 EPR signal. We postulate that this chromophore is an acylperoxoiron(III) intermediate.
The mol-ecule of the title compound, C(10)H(11)N(3)O(3), adopts an all-trans conformation and is approxomately planar, the largest deviation from the least-squares plane through all non-H atoms being 0.261 (1) Å. An intra-molecular O-H⋯N hydrogen bond occurs. In the crystal, the mol-ecules are packed into layers lying parallel to the ab plane by π-stacking(More)
The title compound, [ZnCl(2)(C(10)H(12)N(4)O(2))]·0.5H(2)O, was readily prepared by the reaction between ZnCl(2) and 2-hydroxy-imino-N'-[1-(2-pyrid-yl)ethyl-idene]propanohydrazide. The Zn atom has a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal geometry with two Cl atoms and one azomethine N atom in the equatorial plane and one pyridine N atom and one amide O atom in the(More)
