An introduction to the structure and function of a variety of metalloproteins and metalloenzymes, concentrating on systems containing transition metals. Emphasis is on the role of the metal ion(s), and the inorganic chemistry involved in the biomolecule’s function.
- Metallobiomolecules: General
- Metal-binding organic groups
- Metal structural types
- Elements of protein structure
- The entatic state hypothesis
- Metal substitution
- Synthetic analogues
- Some physical methods
- Metallobiomolecules: Specific
- Oxygen carriers: hemoglobin/myoglobin, hemerythrin, hemocyanin
- Electron transfer: cytochromes, iron-sulfur proteins, blue copper proteins
- Metal transport/storage: ferritin, transferrin, metallothioneins
- Hydrolases: carboxypeptidase, carbonic anhydrase
- Carbon metabolism: methane monooxygenase, cytochrome P-450 enzymes
- Oxygen metabolism: oxidases, oxygenases, superoxide dismutase, catalase
- Oxygen production: water-oxidizing complex of photosynthesis
