The interaction between azurin and silver ions was investigated, by means of ultraviolet, fluorescence and atomic absorption spectroscopies, as a function of the redox state of the protein. The Ag(I) ion has a very low affinity for oxidized azurin. Interestingly, the affinity is much higher for reduced azurin; in this case Ag(I) completely displaces the Cu… CONTINUE READING
