The purification and initial characterization of arsenite oxidase from Alcaligenes faecalis are described. The enzyme consists of a monomer of 86 kDa containing one molybdenum, five or six irons, and inorganic sulfide. In the presence of denaturants arsenite oxidase releases a fluorescent material with specral properties identical to the pterin cofactor released by the hydroxylase class of molybdenum-containing enzymes. Azurin and a C-type cytochrome, both isolated from A. faecalis, each serves… CONTINUE READING
