Resonance Raman studies of the iron(II)--alpha-keto acid chromophore in model and enzyme complexes.


The bidentate coordination of an alpha-keto acid to an iron(II) center via the keto group and the carboxylate gives rise to metal-to-ligand charge-transfer transitions between 400 and 600 nm in model complexes and in alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases. Excitation into these absorption bands of the Fe(II)TauD(alpha-KG) complex (TauD = taurine/alpha… (More)
