The spectral properties of a P-450 preparation from adrenocortical mitochondria were compared with those of both other hemoproteins and model compounds to examine the possibility suggested by previous authors that the mercaptide anion (thiolate anion, RS-) of a cysteine residue might be one of the axial ligands of P-45O. 1. The following features were found in addition to the well known anomalous spectral characteristics of P-450. The Soret band of the ferrous form was at anomalously short… Expand
