Artificial leghemoglobins were reconstituted from apoleghemoglobin and meso-, deutero- and diacetyldeuteroheme. Absorption and circular dichroism spectra of their high-spin and low-spin derivatives in the ferrous and ferric forms were recorded in the ultraviolet and visible wavelength regions. The substitution of the 2,4-side-chains of heme induced changes… CONTINUE READING
