  • Lanthanides are an example of nonbiogenic metal species and have been widely used in crystallographic and spectroscopic studies to probe Mg2+ /Ca2+ binding sites in metalloproteins by replacing the native cofactor. Recently, a methanol dehydrogenase (MDH) enzyme containing cerium ion in the active site has been isolated from Methylacidiphilum fumariolicum bacterium. With the aim to highlight as metal ion substitution can be reflected in catalytic mechanism, a comparative DFT study between Ca… CONTINUE READING
