Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) hydrolysis promoted by cobalt (III). Participation of polynuclear metal complexes.

Complex formation between ATP (adenosine 5'-triphosphate) and tn2COIII(aq) (tn = trimethylenediamine) and resulting hydrolysis of the ATP to ADP (adenosine 5'-diphosphate), AMP (adenosine 5'-monophosphate), PPi (pyrophosphate), and Pi (orthophosphate) have been examined by means of 31P nmr. With ATP approximately 0.1 M and tn2CoIII-(aq) up to 0.3 M, complex… CONTINUE READING
