Physiological Responses to Biotic and Abiotic Stresses through Metalloenzymes

Abstract Tristetraprolin (TTP) uses three cysteine and one histidine residues to bind zinc ions. TTP regulates the expression of cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor α (TNF- α) by binding to AU-rich sequence elements (AREs) located at the 3’-untranslated region […]

Formally Copper(III) Complexes Relevant to Oxidizing Intermediates in Enzymes

Abstract Characterization of copper intermediates in enzymes and other catalysts that attack strong C-H bonds is important for unraveling oxidation catalysis mechanisms and, ultimately, designing new, more efficient catalytic systems. New insights into the nature of such intermediates may be […]
