Molecular dynamics simulations of apocupredoxins: insights into the formation and stabilization of copper sites under entatic control

Abstract

Cupredoxins perform copper-mediated long-range electron transfer (ET) in biological systems. Their copper-binding sites have evolved to force copper ions into ET-competent systems with decreased reorganization energy, increased reduction potential, and a distinct electronic structure compared with those of non-ET-competent copper complexes. The entatic or… (More)
