Azide binding to the trinuclear copper center in laccase and ascorbate oxidase. (1/79)

Azide binding to the blue copper oxidases laccase and ascorbate oxidase (AO) was investigated by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and pulsed electron-nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopies. As the laccase : azide molar ratio decreases from 1:1 to 1:7, the intensity of the type 2 (T2) Cu(II) EPR signal decreases and a signal at g approximately 1.9 appears. Temperature and microwave power dependent EPR measurements showed that this signal has a relatively short relaxation time and is therefore observed only below 40 K. A g approximately 1.97 signal, with similar saturation characteristics was found in the AO : azide (1:7) sample. The g < 2 signals in both proteins are assigned to an S = 1 dipolar coupled Cu(II) pair whereby the azide binding disrupts the anti-ferromagnetic coupling of the type 3 (T3) Cu(II) pair. Analysis of the position of the g < 2 signals suggests that the distance between the dipolar coupled Cu(II) pair is shorter in laccase than in AO. The proximity of T2 Cu(II) to the S = 1 Cu(II) pair enhances its relaxation rate, reducing its signal intensity relative to that of native protein. The disruption of the T3 anti-ferromagnetic coupling occurs only in part of the protein molecules, and in the remaining part a different azide binding mode is observed. The 130 K EPR spectra of AO and laccase with azide (1:7) exhibit, in addition to an unperturbed T2 Cu(II) signal, new features in the g parallel region that are attributed to a perturbed T2 in protein molecules where the anti-ferromagnetic coupling of T3 has not been disrupted. While these features are also apparent in the AO : azide sample at 10 K, they are absent in the EPR spectra of the laccase : azide sample measured in the range of 6-90 K. Moreover, pulsed ENDOR measurements carried out at 4.2 K on the latter exhibited only a reduction in the intensity of the 20 MHz peak of the 14N histidine coordinated to the T2 Cu(II) but did not resolve any significant changes that could indicate azide binding to this ion. The lack of T2 Cu(II) signal perturbation below 90 K in laccase may be due to temperature dependence of the coupling within the trinuclear : azide complex.  (+info)

Homology modeling of the multicopper oxidase Fet3 gives new insights in the mechanism of iron transport in yeast. (2/79)

Fet3, the multicopper oxidase of yeast, oxidizes extracellular ferrous iron which is then transported into the cell through the permease Ftr1. A three-dimensional model structure of Fet3 has been derived by homology modeling. Fet3 consists of three cupredoxin domains joined by a trinuclear copper cluster which is connected to the blue copper site located in the third domain. Close to this site, which is the primary electron acceptor from the substrate, residues for a potential iron binding site could be identified. The surface disposition of negatively charged residues suggests that Fet3 can translocate Fe(3+) to the permease Ftr1 through a pathway under electrostatic guidance.  (+info)

Effects of superoxide anion generators and thiol modulators on nitrergic transmission and relaxation to exogenous nitric oxide in the sheep urethra. (3/79)

The effects of superoxide anion generators, the nitric oxide (NO) scavenger 2-(4-carboxyphenyl)-4,4,5,5-tetramethylimidazoine-1-oxyl 3-oxide (carboxy-PTIO), the specific guanylate cyclase inhibitor 1H-[1,2,4]-oxadiazole-[4,3-a]-quinoxalin-1-one (ODQ), and thiol modulating agents were investigated on relaxations induced by nitrergic stimulation and exogenous NO addition in the sheep urethra. Methylene blue (MB, 10 microM), pyrogallol (0.1 mM) and xanthine (X, 0.1 mM)/xanthine oxidase (XO, 0.1 u ml(-1)) inhibited NO-mediated relaxations, without affecting those induced by nitrergic stimulation. This resistance was not diminished following inhibition of endogenous Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn SOD) with diethyldithiocarbamic acid (DETCA, 3 mM), which almost abolished tissue SOD activity. Carboxy-PTIO (0.1 - 0.5 mM) inhibited NO-mediated relaxations but had no effect on responses to nitrergic stimulation, which were not changed by treatment with ascorbate oxidase (2 u ml(-1)). Relaxations to NO were reduced, but not abolished, by ODQ (10 microM), while nitrergic responses were completely blocked. The thiol modulators, ethacrynic acid (0.1 mM), diamide (1.5 mM), or 5,5'-dithio-bis (2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB, 0. 5 mM), and subsequent treatment with dithiothreitol (DTT, 2 mM) had no effect on responses to nitrergic stimulation or NO. In contrast, N-ethylmaleimide (NEM, 0.2 mM) markedly inhibited both relaxations. L-cysteine (L-cys, 0.1 mM) had no effect on responses to NO, while it inhibited those to nitrergic stimulation, in a Cu/Zn SOD-independent manner. Our results do not support the view that the urethral nitrergic transmitter is free NO, and the possibility that another compound is acting as mediator still remains open.

Auxin metabolism in the root apical meristem. (4/79)

Within the root meristem of flowering plants is a group of mitotically inactive cells designated the quiescent center (QC). Recent work links the quiescent state to high levels of the growth regulator auxin that accumulates in the QC via polar transport. This in turn results in elevated levels of the enzyme ascorbic acid oxidase (AAO), resulting in a reduction of ascorbic acid (AA) within the QC and mitotic quiescence. We present evidence for additional interactions between auxin, AAO, and AA, and report that, in vitro, AAO oxidatively decarboxylates auxin, suggesting a mechanism for regulating auxin levels within the QC. We also report that oxidative decarboxylation occurs at the root tip and that an intact root cap must be present for this metabolic event to occur. Finally, we consider how interaction between auxin and AAO may influence root development by regulating the formation of the QC.  (+info)

Erythrocytes reduce extracellular ascorbate free radicals using intracellular ascorbate as an electron donor. (5/79)

Ascorbate is readily oxidized in aqueous solution by ascorbate oxidase. Ascorbate radicals are formed, which disproportionate to ascorbate and dehydroascorbic acid. Addition of erythrocytes with increasing intracellular ascorbate concentrations decreased the oxidation of ascorbate in a concentration-dependent manner. Concurrently, it was found, utilizing electron spin resonance spectroscopy, that extracellular ascorbate radical levels were decreased. Control experiments showed that these results could not be explained by leakage of ascorbate from the cells, inactivation of ascorbate oxidase, or oxygen depletion. Thus, this means that intracellular ascorbate is directly responsible for the decreased oxidation of extracellular ascorbate. Exposure of ascorbate-loaded erythrocytes to higher levels of extracellular ascorbate radicals resulted in the detection of intracellular ascorbate radicals. Moreover, efflux of dehydroascorbic acid was observed under these conditions. These data confirm the view that intracellular ascorbate donates electrons to extracellular ascorbate free radical via a plasma membrane redox system. Such a redox system enables the cells to effectively counteract oxidative processes and thereby prevent depletion of extracellular ascorbate.  (+info)

Analysis of expressed sequence tags of flower buds in Lotus japonicus. (6/79)

In order to study gene expression in a reproductive organ, we constructed a cDNA library of mature flower buds in Lotus japonicus, and characterized expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of 842 clones randomly selected. The EST sequences were clustered into 718 non-redundant groups. From BLAST and FASTA search analyses of both protein and DNA databases, 58.5% of the EST groups showed significant sequence similarities to known genes. Several genes encoding these EST clones were identified as pollen-specific genes, such as pectin methylesterase, ascorbate oxidase, and polygalacturonase, and as homologous genes involved in pollen-pistil interaction. Comparison of these EST sequences with those derived from the whole plant of L. japonicus, revealed that 64.8% of EST sequences from the flower buds were not found in EST sequences of the whole plant. Taken together, the EST data from flower buds generated in this study is useful in dissecting gene expression in floral organ of L. japonicus.  (+info)

Behavioral activation in rats requires endogenous ascorbate release in striatum. (7/79)

Ascorbate (vitamin C) is found in high concentrations in the striatum in which it may play a role in behavioral activation. To test this hypothesis, freely behaving rats received bilateral intrastriatal infusions of ascorbate oxidase (AAO) to inactivate extracellular ascorbate. Slow-scan voltammetry was used simultaneously to assess changes in ascorbate and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), a major dopamine metabolite, near the infusion site. Intrastriatal AAO, but not saline vehicle, caused a rapid decline in both ascorbate and behavioral activation. Within 20 min, an ascorbate loss of 50-70% led to a near-total inhibition of all recorded behavior, including open-field locomotion, approach of novel objects, and social interactions with other rats. DOPAC levels remained stable, arguing against an AAO-induced disruption of dopamine transmission. Consistent with this interpretation, subsequent injection of 1.0 mg/kg d-amphetamine, an indirect dopamine agonist, quickly restored behavioral activation, which also was accompanied by a marked rise in extracellular ascorbate. Bilateral AAO infusions into dorsal hippocampus, which also has a high level of extracellular ascorbate, failed to alter behavioral activation, indicating that a loss of brain ascorbate per se does not suppress behavior. Collectively, these results implicate ascorbate in the behavioral operations of the striatum and suggest that the extracellular level of this vitamin plays a critical role in behavioral activation.  (+info)

Molecular and biochemical characterization of a highly stable bacterial laccase that occurs as a structural component of the Bacillus subtilis endospore coat. (8/79)

The Bacillus subtilis endospore coat protein CotA shows laccase activity. By using comparative modeling techniques, we were able to derive a model for CotA based on the known x-ray structures of zucchini ascorbate oxidase and Cuprinus cereneus laccase. This model of CotA contains all the structural features of a laccase, including the reactive surface-exposed copper center (T1) and two buried copper centers (T2 and T3). Single amino acid substitutions in the CotA T1 copper center (H497A, or M502L) did not prevent assembly of the mutant proteins into the coat and did not alter the pattern of extractable coat polypeptides. However, in contrast to a wild type strain, both mutants produced unpigmented colonies and spores unable to oxidize syringaldazine (SGZ) and 2'2-azino-bis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS). The CotA protein was purified to homogeneity from an overproducing Escherichia coli strain. The purified CotA shows an absorbance and a EPR spectra typical of blue multicopper oxidases. Optimal enzymatic activity was found at < or =pH 3.0 and at pH 7.0 for ABTS or SGZ oxidation, respectively. The apparent K(m) values for ABTS and SGZ at 37 degrees C were of 106 +/- 11 and 26 +/- 2 microm, respectively, with corresponding k(cat) values of 16.8 +/- 0.8 and 3.7 +/- 0.1 s(-1). Maximal enzyme activity was observed at 75 degrees C with ABTS as substrate. Remarkably, the coat-associated or the purified enzyme showed a half-life of inactivation at 80 degrees C of about 4 and 2 h, respectively, indicating that CotA is intrinsically highly thermostable.  (+info)

In the presence of peroxide and DA-67, peroxidase catalyzes the formation of methylene blue having an absorption maximum at 668 nm. The proposed method eliminates the interferences occurring in serum with use of ascorbate oxidase and stops the reaction with sodium diethyldithiocarbamate, leaving the methylene blue in the reaction mixture stable for about 2 h. Low normal basal values of serum DAO can be determined in the range 2.8-9.0 units/l. Since all reagents are commercially available the method is suitable for the clinical laboratory..

Since, it is estimated that 6000-8000 polyphenols exist in nature, a fraction have been isolated and studied, so our knowledge of these compounds, and how they interact with other antioxidants, such as those included in the antioxidant network that we discussed previously, is limited. Since all Polyphenol substances are subject to metabolic changes it is difficult to ascertain how these compounds affect our health specifically (Is it the polyphenols or the by product after metabolism that provides the benefit?). We know that Flavonoids alter Vitamin C transport and the function of Ascorbate oxidase,an enzyme that converts Vitamin C to a non vitamin form, but we dont know why, and if this relationship somehow enhances antioxidant function. It was always thought that polyphenols and other antioxidants simply scavenge free radicals as a form of protection against oxidative damage, but it is more the case of interaction of the polyphenolic compounds and their modification of redox status of the ...

The 2-Cys peroxiredoxin-A (2CPA) promoter is a model promoter to study redox and ABA-dependent stress signaling. Here, an Arabidopsis reporter gene line expressing luciferase under control of the 2CPA promoter was used to study the impact of ascorbate on reporter gene transcription in a series of protoplast and leaf slice incubation experiments. It was shown that ascorbate has a dual function on gene expression regulation. First, a comparison of responses to ascorbate, dehydroascorbate and reduced and oxidized glutathione demonstrated that ascorbate feeding supports gene expression regulation by increasing the catalytic capacity in redox signaling, as defined by the concentration of low molecular weight antioxidants and their oxidized counterparts. Second, ascorbate had a specific and light-dependent effect on 2CPA transcription, which cannot be substituted by reduced glutathione. Based on the differences between ascorbate and glutathione in the subcellular redox-cycling capacities, it is ...

We report a trinuclear copper(II) complex, [(DAM)Cu₃(μ³-O)][Cl]₄ (1, DAM = dodecaaza macrotetracycle), as a homogeneous electrocatalyst for water oxidation to dioxygen in phosphate-buffered solutions at pH 7.0, 8.1, and 11.5. Electrocatalytic water oxidation at pH 7 occurs at an overpotential of 550 mV with a turnover frequency of ∼19 s⁻¹ at 1.5 V vs NHE. Controlled potential electrolysis (CPE) experiments at pH 11.5 over 3 h at 1.2 V and at pH 8.1 for 40 min at 1.37 V vs NHE confirm the evolution of dioxygen with Faradaic efficiencies of 81% and 45%, respectively. Rinse tests conducted after CPE studies provide evidence for the homogeneous nature of the catalysis. The linear dependence of the current density on the catalyst concentration indicates a likely first-order dependence on the Cu precatalyst 1, while kinetic isotope studies (H₂O versus D₂O) point to involvement of a proton in or preceding the rate-determining step.

E. coli is able to utilize L-ascorbate (vitamin C) as the sole source of carbon under anaerobic and aerobic conditions. Ascorbic acid in the cytoplasm is processed through a spontaneous reaction with a hydrogen ion and hydrogen peroxide, producing water, dehydroascorbic acid and ascorbic acid. Dehydroascorbic acid reacts with water spontaneously producing an isomer, dehydroascorbate (bicyclic form). The compound then loses a hydrogen ion resulting in a 2,3-Diketo-L-gulonate. This compound is then reduced through a NADH dependent 2,3 diketo-L-gulonate reductase, releasing a NAD and 3-Dehydro-L-gulonate.This compound is phosphorylated through an ATP mediated L-xylulose/3-keto-L-gulonate kinase resulting in an ADP, hydrogen ion and a 3-Keto-L-gulonate 6 phosphate. L-ascorbate can also be imported and converted to L-ascorbate-6-phosphate by the L-ascorbate PTS transporter. L-ascorbate-6-phosphate reacts with a probable L-ascorbate-6-phosphate lactonase ulaG, resulting in a 3-keto-L-gulonate ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Ascorbate degradation in tomato leads to accumulation of oxalate, threonate and oxalyl threonate. T2 - Ascorbate degradation in tomato. AU - Truffault, Vincent. AU - Fry, Stephen. AU - Stevens, Rebecca G. AU - Gautier, Helene. PY - 2016/11/26. Y1 - 2016/11/26. N2 - Ascorbate content in plants is controlled by its synthesis from carbohydrates, recycling of the oxidized forms and degradation. Of these pathways, ascorbate degradation is the least studied and represents a lack of knowledge which could impair improvement of ascorbate content in fruits and vegetables as degradation is non-reversible and leads to a depletion of the ascorbate pool. The present study revealed the nature of degradation products using [14C]ascorbate labelling in tomato, a model plant for fleshy fruits; oxalate and threonate are accumulated in leaves, as is oxalyl threonate. Carboxypentonates coming from diketogulonate degradation were detected in relatively insoluble (cell wall-rich) leaf material. No ...
Ascorbate and glutathione (GSH) are the primary water-soluble antioxidants in the CNS. Oxidative stress, sometimes indicated by loss of these antioxidants, has been linked to several clinical and experimental conditions, including cerebral ischemia. These conditions are also gender-linked, with greater incidence or severity in males than females. To test whether there are gender differences in oxidant/antioxidant regulation, we determined basal levels of ascorbate and GSH in rat brain and their loss after 1 h decapitation ischemia. We found that ascorbate levels in male rat brain were 7-10% higher than in females, depending on region, whereas GSH levels were gender-independent. Significant ascorbate loss (up to 12%) occurred in males during ischemia, with a regional pattern of cerebellum | hippocampus | prefrontal cortex. Loss of ascorbate in females was not significant in any region. By contrast, loss of GSH was significant in both males and females. Greater loss of GSH than ascorbate was in agreement

Cucurbita pepo belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family. The Zucchini types rank among the highest-valued vegetables worldwide, and other C. pepo and related Cucurbita spp., are food staples and rich sources of fat and vitamins. A broad range of genomic tools are today available for other cucurbits that have become models for the study of different metabolic processes. However, these tools are still lacking in the Cucurbita genus, thus limiting gene discovery and the process of breeding. We report the generation of a total of 512,751 C. pepo EST sequences, using 454 GS FLX Titanium technology. ESTs were obtained from normalized cDNA libraries (root, leaves, and flower tissue) prepared using two varieties with contrasting phenotypes for plant, flowering and fruit traits, representing the two C. pepo subspecies: subsp. pepo cv. Zucchini and subsp. ovifera cv Scallop. De novo assembling was performed to generate a collection of 49,610 Cucurbita unigenes (average length of 626 bp) that represent the first

Why do we need Sodium Ascorbate?. The GLO Gene is absent in many people. Scientists believe that this happened around 60 million years ago. The absence of this gene makes us unable to biosynthesize the specific enzyme L- gulonolactone oxidase. This is an end-stage liver enzyme that bio-converts blood glucose to Ascorbate; without it, our bodies cannot produce any Ascorbate. In the long term, the lack of Ascorbate causes our bones to dissolve and teeth to fall out; in other words, sub-clinical scurvy and a tendency to develop cancer.. Ascorbic Acid is produced in large quantities in almost all animals, e.g. 6 grams a day in goat, or up to 100grams daily if the goat is stressed. But it is not the Ascorbic Acid our body requires, rather a SALT of Ascorbic Acid. A daily supplementation of Ascorbate several times a day is a simple way to make up for this genetic defect.. Robert F. Cathcart, MD another medical pioneer who has had great success with Ascorbate, successfully treating over 25,000 patients ...
Zucchinis are good for a beginning garden and grow well in most climates. Theyre a natural for summer gardens, usually ending the season with glorious glut. They are extremely easy to grow, says Rich Merrill of The Gardeners Table. He recommends eating the zucchini when small, not letting them grow too large. Zucchini is available in most supermarkets year-round. When picking, look for small to medium zucchini with no soft or extra dark spots. It should be firm, not withered or dried out. Its a summer squash, so take care not to knick its gentle skin while handling. You can easily peel the skin off with a knife, but it tastes great left on, softening along with the flesh in cooking. If you stir-fry zucchini, do it quickly so that it remains intact. Long slow cooking will surely turn it to goo. One cup of sliced raw zucchini is about 15 calories. It is high in potassium and vitamin A. ...

Ascorbate peroxidase is a bifunctional peroxidase that catalyzes the H(2)O(2)-dependent oxidation of both ascorbate and various aromatic substrates. The ascorbate binding site was recently identified as being close to the gamma-heme edge [Sharp, K. H., Mewies, M., Moody, P. C. E., and Raven, E. L. (2003)Nat. Struct. Biol. 10, 303-307]. In this work, the X-ray crystal structure of recombinant soybean cytosolic ascorbate peroxidase (rsAPX) in complex with salicylhydroxamic acid (SHA) has been determined to 1.46 A. The SHA molecule is bound close to the delta-heme edge in a cavity that connects the distal side of the heme to the surface of the protein. There are hydrogen bonds between the phenolic hydroxide of the SHA and the main chain carbonyl of Pro132, between the carbonyl oxygen of SHA and the side chain guanadinium group of Arg38, and between the hydroxamic acid group and the indole nitrogen of Trp41. The structure provides the first information about the location of the aromatic binding site ...
Novel conglomerates consisting of saddle-distorted SnIV(DPP) (H2DPP = dodecaphenylporphyrin) complexes and μ3-O- centered and carboxylato-bridged trinuclear RuIII clusters linked by pyridine carboxylates were synthesized and characterized. SnIV-DPP complexes with Cl-, OH-, and 3- and 4-pyridine carboxylates ligands were characterized by spectroscopic methods and X-ray crystallography. Reactions of [Sn(DPP)-(pyridinecarboxylato)2] with trinuclear RuIII clusters gave novel conglomerates in moderate yields. The conglomerates are stable in solution as demonstrated by 1HNMR and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) measurements, which show consistent spectra with those expected from their structures, and also by electrochemical measurements, which exhibit reversible multistep redox processes. This stability stems from the saddle distortion of the DPP2-ligand to enhance the Lewis acidity of the SnIV center that strengthens the axial coordination of the linker. The fast intramolecular ...

Zucchini has a slightly crisp texture and subtle, slightly sour flavour that goes well with all kinds of ingredients. Luckily in WA we can enjoy local zucchini for just about the whole year, coming from Carnarvon in winter and being produced locally in Wanneroo, Baldivis and the south west in winter. From time to time crossing over between regions there is insufficient quantity and some produce will be bought over from South Australia, although this is quite rare.. ...

  • But let's return to the subject of stress and vitamin C. It is no wonder ascorbate levels are the highest in the adrenal glands. (
  • Most of my current research revolves around determining the biological functions of vitamin C (ascorbate), which is widely considered to be an important natural antioxidant. (
  • This research will help to inform the debate around the appropriate Nutrient Reference Value and Recommended Dietary Intake for vitamin C. Ascorbate acts as a cofactor for the enzymatic synthesis of mood and energy controlling hormones. (

  • Apart from the specialized water-producing reactions catalyzed by specific oxidases, the initial product of this flux is superoxide, from which other ROS are subsequently produced ( Table 1 ). (
  • Moreover, because the tocopherol redox couple has a more positive midpoint potential than that of the ascorbate pool, it increases even further the range of effective superoxide scavenging. (

  • Pauling observed that after the loss of endogenous ascorbate production, apo(a) and Lp(a) were greatly favored by evolution, acting as ascorbate surrogate, since the frequency of occurrence of elevated Lp(a) plasma levels in species that had lost the ability to synthesize ascorbate is great. (
  • Lack of this enzyme makes humans unable to synthesize ascorbate from blood glucose. (
