Stabilization of chromium(V) species in bovine serum albumin adduct.

A detailed investigation of molecular interactions of the protein bovine serum albumin ( BSA) with potassium dichromate has been made. Compelling evidence for the formation of a relatively stable Cr(V) species which decays only slowly to afford Cr(III) products has been obtained. The resulting final chromium(III) product mediates in cross-linking of BSA. The implications of the formation of a relatively stable chromium(V) as well as chromium(III)-mediated cross-links in the marker protein are discussed in the context of the metal ion-induced biotoxicity.[1]
