  • Magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectra of Pseudomonas aeruginosa cytochrome oxidase are reported over the spectral range of 350 to 700 nm for the oxidized, ascorbate-reduced, dithionite-reduced and reduced carbon monoxide forms. The spectra of all forms examined can be interpreted as the simple sum of the individual heme c and heme d/sub 1/ contributions without invoking ''heme-heme interaction.'' In particular and contrary to a recent report (Orii, Shimada, Nozawa, and Hatano, this Journal 76, 983 (1977)) no effect of ligand binding to ferrous heme d/sub 1/ was observed in the MCD spectrum of the heme c component. It seems likelymore » that the previous findings were the result of incomplete reduction of the enzyme in the absence of stabilizing ligands.« less
  • Research highlights: {yields} Mutations in POR identified from patients lead to reduced HO-1 activities. {yields} POR mutation Y181D affecting FMN binding results in total loss of HO-1 activity. {yields} POR mutations A287P, C569Y and V608F, lost 50-70% activity. {yields} Mutations in FAD binding domain, R457H, Y459H and V492E lost all HO-1 activity. {yields} POR polymorphisms P228L, R316W, G413S, A503V and G504R have normal activity. -- Abstract: Human heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) carries out heme catabolism supported by electrons supplied from the NADPH through NADPH P450 reductase (POR, CPR). Previously we have shown that mutations in human POR cause a rare formmore » of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. In this study, we have evaluated the effects of mutations in POR on HO-1 activity. We used purified preparations of wild type and mutant human POR and in vitro reconstitution with purified HO-1 to measure heme degradation in a coupled assay using biliverdin reductase. Here we show that mutations in POR found in patients may reduce HO-1 activity, potentially influencing heme catabolism in individuals carrying mutant POR alleles. POR mutants Y181D, A457H, Y459H, V492E and R616X had total loss of HO-1 activity, while POR mutations A287P, C569Y and V608F lost 50-70% activity. The POR variants P228L, R316W and G413S, A503V and G504R identified as polymorphs had close to WT activity. Loss of HO-1 activity may result in increased oxidative neurotoxicity, anemia, growth retardation and iron deposition. Further examination of patients affected with POR deficiency will be required to assess the metabolic effects of reduced HO-1 activity in affected individuals.« less
  • NADH cytochrome b{sub 5} oxidoreductase (Ncb5or) is found in animals and contains three domains similar to cytochrome b{sub 5} (b{sub 5}), CHORD-SGT1 (CS), and cytochrome b{sub 5} reductase (b{sub 5}R). Ncb5or has an important function, as suggested by the diabetes and lipoatrophy phenotypes in Ncb5or null mice. To elucidate the structural and functional properties of human Ncb5or, we generated its individual b{sub 5} and b{sub 5}R domains (Ncb5or-b{sub 5} and Ncb5or-b{sub 5}R, respectively) and compared them with human microsomal b{sub 5} (Cyb5A) and b{sub 5}R (Cyb5R3). A 1.25 {angstrom} x-ray crystal structure of Ncb5or-b{sub 5} reveals nearly orthogonal planes ofmore » the imidazolyl rings of heme-ligating residues His{sup 89} and His{sup 112}, consistent with a highly anisotropic low spin EPR spectrum. Ncb5or is the first member of the cytochrome b{sub 5} family shown to have such a heme environment. Like other b{sub 5} family members, Ncb5or-b{sub 5} has two helix-loop-helix motifs surrounding heme. However, Ncb5or-b{sub 5} differs from Cyb5A with respect to location of the second heme ligand (His{sup 112}) and of polypeptide conformation in its vicinity. Electron transfer from Ncb5or-b{sub 5}R to Ncb5or-b{sub 5} is much less efficient than from Cyb5R3 to Cyb5A, possibly as a consequence of weaker electrostatic interactions. The CS linkage probably obviates the need for strong interactions between b{sub 5} and b{sub 5}R domains in Ncb5or. Studies with a construct combining the Ncb5or CS and b{sub 5}R domains suggest that the CS domain facilitates docking of the b{sub 5} and b{sub 5}R domains. Trp{sup 114} is an invariant surface residue in all known Ncb5or orthologs but appears not to contribute to electron transfer from the b{sub 5}R domain to the b{sub 5} domain.« less
