An ENDOR study of human and bovine erythrocyte superoxide dismutase: 1H and 14N interactions.

Hyperfine interactions (1H and 14N) with the paramagnetic Cu(II)-site obtained from frozen solutions of human and bovine erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (superoxide:superoxide oxidoreductase, EC 1.15.1.1) as well as from their derivatives produced by anion binding (N3-, CN-) and by depletion of the Zn(II) site were studied using electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy at about 15 K. Both interactions were found to be identical in human and bovine erythrocyte superoxide dismutase. In all compounds, an anisotropic, exchangeable 1H interaction with a nearly constant coupling value (approximately 3 MHz along g perpendicular ) was observed which is due to either histidine NH- or water protons. Other proton interactions were tentatively assigned to H beta 1 of His-44, H delta 2 of His-46 and to H beta 2 of His-44. Depletion of the Zn(II) site did not alter appreciably the pattern of the proton interactions. The 14N couplings of the native specimen indicated equivalent coordination, whereas Zn(II) depletion and CN- addition were found to produce either some or drastic inequivalences, respectively. For N3- addition to either the native or the Zn(II)-depleted sample only minor effects on the respective 14N coupling pattern were observed.[1]
