The coordination environment of the type 2 (nonblue) copper in native ascorbate oxidase (L-ascorbate:oxygen oxidoreductase, EC 1.10.3.3) and of a derivative of the enzyme having the type 1 (blue) copper reversibly bleached has been examined by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. In the g[unk] region of the spectrum of bleached ascorbate… CONTINUE READING
