Pseudoenzymatic dealkylation of alkyltins by biological dithiols


We investigated the time dependence of the degradation of three alkyltin derivatives by a nine amino acid linear peptide (I1LGCWCYLR9) containing a CXC motif derived from the primary sequence of stannin, a membrane protein involved in alkyltin toxicity. We monitored the reaction kinetics using the intrinsic fluorescence of the tryptophan residue in position… (More)
