Title: A cytosolic cytochrome b {sub 5}-like protein in yeast cell accelerating the electron transfer from NADPH to cytochrome c catalyzed by Old Yellow Enzyme

Abstract

A 410-nm absorbing species which enhanced the reduction rate of cytochrome c by Old Yellow Enzyme (OYE) with NADPH was found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It was solubilized together with OYE by the treatment of yeast cells with 10% ethyl acetate. The purified species showed visible absorption spectra in both oxidized and reduced forms, which were the same as those of the yeast microsomal cytochrome b {sub 5}. At least 14 amino acid residues of the N-terminal region coincided with those of yeast microsomal b {sub 5}, but the protein had a lower molecular weight determined to be 12,600 by SDS-PAGE and 9775 by mass spectrometry. The cytochrome b {sub 5}-like protein enhanced the reduction rate of cytochrome c by OYE, and a plot of the reduction rates against its concentration showed a sigmoidal curve with an inflexion point at 6 x 10{sup -8} M of the protein.

  • Experiments were conducted to determine effects of a phenolic polymer (Kraft wood lignin, Indulin), phenolic glycosides (cane molasses and wood molasses), and phenolic monomers (vanillin, vanillic acid, ferulic acid, and p-coumaric acid) on liver cytochromes P-450, cytochrome b/sub 5/, and NADPH cytochrome c reductase in chicks and rats. Chicks fed 6.0% lignin had a higher cytochromes P-450 content than did chicks fed 0% fiber, 6.0% wood cellulose, or 6.0% arenaceous flour. Chicks fed 12.0% wood molasses had a higher cytochromes P-450 level than did chicks fed 0% fiber or 6.0% wood molasses. Cane molasses incorporated at both 6.0 and 12.0%more » of the diet induced cytochromes P-450 content over those of control-fed birds. Chicks fed 6.0% lignin, with or without antibiotic, had a higher cytochromes P-450 level than did chicks fed control diets, with or without antibiotic. Additionally, chicks fed 6.0% lignin had lower intestinal diaminopimelic acid (DAP) levels than did chicks fed 0% fiber. Rats fed 0% fiber, 6.0% wood cellulose, 6.0% arenaceous flour, or 6.0% lignin exhibited no difference in cytochrome level or activity among treatments. Chicks fed 0.5% vanillin, 0.5% vanillic acid, 0.5% ferulic acid, or 0.5% p-coumaric acid had comparable cytochromes level and activity compared with chicks fed no phenolics. Chicks fed 0.5% p-coumaric acid had lower rates of gain than did chicks fed control or other phenolic-containing diets. Rats fed these phenolics had similar cytochromes P-450 content among treatments.« less
  • High precision measurements of the vapor pressure differences between some deuterated benzenes B-d/sub x/ (x=1, para-2, and 6) and protio benzene B-d/sub 0/; between para- and ortho-, and para- and meta-dideuterobenzene; and between perdeuterocyclohexane C-d/sub 12/ and protiocyclohexane C-d/sub 0/ were made from near the freezing point to the normal boiling point. The data are best represented as the logarithmic ratios ln R (d/sub 6/) =ln (P/sub d/0/P/sub d/6) =1226.5/T/sup 2/-12.178/T, ln R (para/ortho) =ln (P/sub parahyphend/2/P/sub orthohyphend/2) =2.6/T/sup 2/, and ln R (para/meta) =ln (P/sub parahyphend/2/P/sub metahyphend/2) =-2.0/T/sup 2/, together with the deviations from the law of the meanmore » ..delta.. (d1) =6-(ln R (d/sub 6/)/lnR (d/sub 1/))=0.177-3.6 x 10/sup -4/t and ..delta.. (d/sub 2hyphenpara/=3-(ln R (d/sub 6/)/ln R (d/sub 2hyphenpara/))=0.028 +1.0 x 10/sup -4/t. The isotope effects are inverse and display significant deviations from the law of the mean. The cyclohexane results are given by ln R (C-d/sub 12/) =-2188.4/T/sup 2/-18.587/T. New measurements of the vapor pressures of benzene--cyclohexane solutions are also reported between 5 and 80 /sup 0/C. The data are in good agreement with the best earlier work. Excess free energies of the equimolar solutions B-h/sub 6//B-d/sub 6/ and C-h/sub 12//C-d/sub 12/ have been measured between 20 and 80 /sup 0/C. Suitable fits to the data yield the following results (30 /sup 0/C); G/sup ex/(B-h/B-d), G/sup ex/(C-h/C-d); H/sup ex/(B-h/B-d),« less
  • The chelation of the monodentate dithiocarbamate complexes (Fe({eta}{sup 5}-C{sub 5}R{sub 5})({eta}{sup 1}-dtc)(CO){sub 2}) (dtc = SC(S)NMe{sub 2}; R = H (1a), Me (1b)) to (Fe({eta}{sup 5}-C{sub 5}R{sub 5})({eta}{sup 2}-dtc)(CO)) (R = H (2a), Me (2b)) is catalyzed by (FeCp{sub 2}){sup +}X{sup {minus}} (X{sup {minus}} = PF{sub 6}{sup {minus}} (3a), BF{sup {minus}}{sub 4} (3b), SbCl{sup {minus}}{sub 6} (3c)) in THF. The mechanism involves the oxidation 1 + 3 {yields} 2{sup +}X{sup {minus}} + FeCp{sub 2} and the cross electron transfer (ET) 2{sup +}X{sup {minus}} + 1 {yields} 2+1{sup +}X{sup {minus}}.

  • Proton NMR spectra of cytochrome c peroxidase (CcP) isolated from yeast (wild type) and two Escherichia coli expressed proteins, the parent expressed protein (CcP(MI)) and the site-directed mutant CcP(MI,D235N) (Asp-235 {yields} Asn-235), have been examined. At neutral pH and in the presence of only potassium phosphate buffer and potassium nitrate, wild-type Ccp and CcP(MI) demonstrate nearly identical spectra corresponding to normal (i.e., unaged) high-spin ferric peroxidase. In contrast, the mutant protein displays a spectrum characteristic of a low-spin form, probably a result of hydroxide ligation. Asp-235 is hydrogen-bonded to the proximal heme ligand, His-175. Changing Asp-235 to Asn results inmore » alteration of the pK for formation of the basic form of CcP. Thus, changes in proximal side structure mediate the chemistry of the distal ligand binding site. All three proteins bind F{sup {minus}}, N{sub 3}{sup {minus}}, and CN{sup {minus}} ions, although the affinity of the mutant protein (D235N) for fluoride ion appears to be much higher than that of the other two proteins. Analysis of proton NMR spectra of the cyanide ligated forms leads to the conclusion that the mutant protein (D235N) possesses a more neutral proximal histidine imidazole ring than does either wild-type CcP or CcP(MI). It confirms that an important feature of the cytochrome c peroxidase structure is at least partial, and probably full, imidazolate character for the proximal histidine (His-175).« less
