Midpoint reduction potentials for the flavin cofactors in the reductase domain of rat neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in calmodulin (CaM)-free and -bound forms have been determined by direct anaerobic titration. In the CaM-free form, the FMN potentials are -49 +/- 5 mV (oxidized/semiquinone) -274 +/- 5 mV (semiquinone/reduced). The corresponding FAD potentials are -232 +/- 7, and -280 +/- 6 mV. The data indicate that each flavin can exist as a blue (neutral) semiquinone. The accumulation… CONTINUE READING
