  • One-electron oxidation of TyrOH-TrpH or TrpH-TyrOH in aqueous solutions by N3 radicals occurs predominantly at the tryptophyl residue. The corresponding indolyl radicals (absorbing at 510 nm) are subsequently transformed into phenoxyl radicals (absorbing at 390/405 nm): TyrOH-Trp leads to TyrO-TrpH, k5 = 5.4 x 10(4)s-1, (5), Trp-TyrOH leads to TrpH-TyrO, k7 = 7.3 x 10(4)s-1. (7) The first-order radical transformation rates are independent of the (initial) concentration of N3 or peptide and… CONTINUE READING
