Internal electron transfer between hemes and Cu(II) bound at cysteine beta93 promotes methemoglobin reduction by carbon monoxide. (1/2768)

Previous studies showed that CO/H2O oxidation provides electrons to drive the reduction of oxidized hemoglobin (metHb). We report here that Cu(II) addition accelerates the rate of metHb beta chain reduction by CO by a factor of about 1000. A mechanism whereby electron transfer occurs via an internal pathway coupling CO/H2O oxidation to Fe(III) and Cu(II) reduction is suggested by the observation that the copper-induced rate enhancement is inhibited by blocking Cys-beta93 with N-ethylmaleimide. Furthermore, this internal electron-transfer pathway is more readily established at low Cu(II) concentrations in Hb Deer Lodge (beta2His --> Arg) and other species lacking His-beta2 than in Hb A0. This difference is consistent with preferential binding of Cu(II) in Hb A0 to a high affinity site involving His-beta2, which is ineffective in promoting electron exchange between Cu(II) and the beta heme iron. Effective electron transfer is thus affected by Hb type but is not governed by the R left arrow over right arrow T conformational equilibrium. The beta hemes in Cu(II)-metHb are reduced under CO at rates close to those observed for cytochrome c oxidase, where heme and copper are present together in the oxygen-binding site and where internal electron transfer also occurs.  (+info)

Subunit dissociation in fish hemoglobins. (2/2768)

The tetramer-dimer dissociation equilibria (K 4,2) of several fish hemoglobins have been examined by sedimentation velocity measurements with a scanner-computer system for the ultracentrifuge and by flash photolysis measurements using rapid kinetic methods. Samples studied in detail included hemoglobins from a marine teleost, Brevoortia tyrannus (common name, menhaden); a fresh water teleost, Cyprinus carpio, (common name, carp); and an elasmobranch Prionace glauca (common name, blue shark). For all three species in the CO form at pH 7, in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, sedimentation coefficients of 4.3 S (typical of tetrameric hemoglobin) are observed in the micromolar concentration range. In contrast, mammalian hemoglobins dissociate appreciably to dimers under these conditions. The inability to detect dissociation in three fish hemoglobins at the lowest concentrations examined indicates that K 4,2 must have a value of 10(-8) M or less. In flash photolysis experiments on very dilute solutions in long path length cells, two kinetic components were detected with their proportions varying as expected for an equilibrium between tetramers (the slower component) and dimers (the faster component); values of K 4,2 for the three fish hemoglobins in the range 10(-9) to 10(-8) M were calculated from these data. Thus, the values of K 4,2 for liganded forms of the fish hemoglobins appear to be midway between the value for liganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-6) M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-12) M). This conclusion is supported by measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride to enhance the degree of dissociation. All three fish hemoglobins are appreciably dissociated at guanidine concentrations of about 0.8 M, which is roughly midway between the guanidine concentrations needed to cause comparable dissociation of liganded human hemoglobin (about 0.4 M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (about 1.6 M). Kinetic measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride indicated that there are changes in both the absolute rates and the proportions of the fast and slow components, which along with other factors complicated the analysis of the data in terms of dissociation constants. Measurements were also made in solutions containing urea to promote dissociation, but with this agent very high concentrations (about 6 M) were required to give measureable dissociation and the fish hemoglobins were unstable under these conditions, with appreciable loss of absorbance spectra in both the sedimentation and kinetic experiments.  (+info)

Reactivity of cyanate with valine-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin. A probe of conformational change and anion binding. (3/2768)

The 3-fold increase in the carbamylation rate of Val-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin upon deoxygenation described earlier is now shown to be a sensitive probe of conformational change. Thus, whereas this residue in methemoglobin A is carbamylated at the same rate as in liganded hemoglobin, upon addition of inositol hexaphosphate its carbamylation rate is enhanced 30% as much as the total change in the rate between the CO and deoxy states. For CO-hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of the organic phosphate, the relative increase in the carbamylation rate of this residue is about 50%. These results indicate that methemoglobin A and hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of inositol hexaphosphate do not assume a conformation identical with deoxyhemoglobin but rather form either a mixture of R and T states or an intermediate conformation in the region around Val-1 (alpha). Studies on the mechanism for the rate enhancement in deoxyhemoglobin suggest that the cyanate anion binds to groups in the vicinity of Val-1 (alpha) prior to proton transfer and carbamylation of this NH2-terminal residue. Thus, specific removal with carboxypeptidase B of Arg-141 (alpha), which is close to Val-1 (alpha) in deoxyhemoglobin, abolishes the enhancement in carbamylation. Chloride, which has the same valency as cyanate, is a better competitive inhibitor of the carbamylation of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 50 mM) compared with liganded hemoglobin. Nitrate and iodide are also effective inhibitors of the carbamylation of Val-1 (alpha) of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 35 mM); inorganic phosphate, sulfate, and fluoride are poor competitive inhibitors. The change in pKa of Val-1 (alpha) upon deoxygenation may be due to its differential interaction with chloride.  (+info)

Condensation of carbon in radioactive supernova gas. (4/2768)

Chemistry resulting in the formation of large carbon-bearing molecules and dust in the interior of an expanding supernova was explored, and the equations governing their abundances were solved numerically. Carbon dust condenses from initially gaseous carbon and oxygen atoms because energetic electrons produced by radioactivity in the supernova cause dissociation of the carbon monoxide molecules, which would otherwise form and limit the supply of carbon atoms. The resulting free carbon atoms enable carbon dust to grow faster by carbon association than the rate at which the dust can be destroyed by oxidation. The origin of presolar micrometer-sized carbon solids that are found in meteorites is thereby altered.  (+info)

Structural dynamics of ligand diffusion in the protein matrix: A study on a new myoglobin mutant Y(B10) Q(E7) R(E10). (5/2768)

A triple mutant of sperm whale myoglobin (Mb) [Leu(B10) --> Tyr, His(E7) --> Gln, and Thr(E10) --> Arg, called Mb-YQR], investigated by stopped-flow, laser photolysis, crystallography, and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, proved to be quite unusual. Rebinding of photodissociated NO, O2, and CO from within the protein (in a "geminate" mode) allows us to reach general conclusions about dynamics and cavities in proteins. The 3D structure of oxy Mb-YQR shows that bound O2 makes two H-bonds with Tyr(B10)29 and Gln(E7)64; on deoxygenation, these two residues move toward the space occupied by O2. The bimolecular rate constant for NO binding is the same as for wild-type, but those for CO and O2 binding are reduced 10-fold. While there is no geminate recombination with O2 and CO, geminate rebinding of NO displays an unusually large and very slow component, which is pretty much abolished in the presence of xenon. These results and MD simulations suggest that the ligand migrates in the protein matrix to a major "secondary site," located beneath Tyr(B10)29 and accessible via the motion of Ile(G8)107; this site is different from the "primary site" identified by others who investigated the photolyzed state of wild-type Mb by crystallography. Our hypothesis may rationalize the O2 binding properties of Mb-YQR, and more generally to propose a mechanism of control of ligand binding and dissociation in hemeproteins based on the dynamics of side chains that may (or may not) allow access to and direct temporary sequestration of the dissociated ligand in a docking site within the protein. This interpretation suggests that very fast (picosecond) fluctuations of amino acid side chains may play a crucial role in controlling O2 delivery to tissue at a rate compatible with physiology.  (+info)

Heterotropic effectors exert more significant strain on monoligated than on unligated hemoglobin. (6/2768)

The effect of allosteric effectors, such as inositol hexakisphosphate and/or bezafibrate, has been investigated on the unliganded human adult hemoglobin both spectroscopically (employing electronic absorption, circular dichroism, resonance Raman, and x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopies) and functionally (following the kinetics of the first CO binding step up to a final 4% ligand saturation degree). All data indicate that the unliganded T-state is not perturbed by the interaction with either one or both effectors, suggesting that their functional influence is only exerted when a ligand molecule is bound to the heme. This is confirmed by the observation that CO dissociation from partially liganded hemoglobin ( +info)

Evaluation of passive smoking by measuring urinary trans, trans-muconic acid and exhaled carbon monoxide levels. (7/2768)

No method has yet been established to evaluate the exposure to tobacco smoke in passive smoking (PS). We therefore conducted a study on the possibility that the levels of urinary trans, trans-muconic acid (MA) and the exhaled carbon monoxide (CO) could be indices of the passive exposure to tobacco smoke. The moderate correlation was observed between urinary MA levels and the number of consumed cigarettes per day in smokers. The mean urinary MA level of the PS (+) group was significantly higher than that with the PS (-) group. Among the PS (+) group, the mean MA level in the urine obtained in the afternoon was higher than that obtained in the morning. A high correlation was observed between the exhaled CO levels and the number of consumed cigarettes per day in smokers. Like the urinary MA level, the mean exhaled CO level in the PS (+) group, too, gave a significantly higher level than in the PS (-) group. Because the biological half life of MA (7.5 +/- 0.85 h) was longer than that of CO (3.0 +/- 0.36 h), the measurement of urinary MA level is recommended for evaluating the exposure of passive smoking. The measurement of exhaled CO levels is useful only for chain smokers and nonsmokers with PS just before measurement.  (+info)

Chlamydomonas chloroplast ferrous hemoglobin. Heme pocket structure and reactions with ligands. (8/2768)

We report the optical and resonance Raman spectral characterization of ferrous recombinant Chlamydomonas LI637 hemoglobin. We show that it is present in three pH-dependent equilibrium forms including a 4-coordinate species at acid pH, a 5-coordinate high spin species at neutral pH, and a 6-coordinate low spin species at alkaline pH. The proximal ligand to the heme is the imidazole group of a histidine. Kinetics of the reactions with ligands were determined by stopped-flow spectroscopy. At alkaline pH, combination with oxygen, nitric oxide, and carbon monoxide displays a kinetic behavior that is interpreted as being rate-limited by conversion of the 6-coordinate form to a reactive 5-coordinate form. At neutral pH, combination rates of the 5-coordinate form with oxygen and carbon monoxide were much faster (>10(7) microM-1 s-1). The dissociation rate constant measured for oxygen is among the slowest known, 0.014 s-1, and is independent of pH. Replacement of the tyrosine 63 (B10) by leucine or of the putative distal glutamine by glycine increases the dissociation rate constant 70- and 30-fold and increases the rate of autoxidation 20- and 90-fold, respectively. These results are consistent with at least two hydrogen bonds stabilizing the bound oxygen molecule, one from tyrosine B10 and the other from the distal glutamine. In addition, the high frequency (232 cm-1) of the iron-histidine bond suggests a structure that lacks any proximal strain thus contributing to high ligand affinity.  (+info)

Cultures of Clostridium formicoaceticum and C. thermoaceticum growing on fructose and glucose, respectively, were shown to rapidly oxidize CO to CO2. Rates up to 0.4 μmol min−1 mg of wet cells−1 were observed. Carbon monoxide oxidation by cell suspensions was found (i) to be dependent on pyruvate, (ii) to be inhibited by alkyl halides and arsenate, and (iii) to stimulate CO2 reduction to acetate. Cell extracts catalyzed the oxidation of carbon monoxide with methyl viologen at specific rates up to 10 μmol min−1 mg of protein−1 (35°C, pH 7.2).

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of magnesium on preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide on platinum catalyst in hydrogen-rich stream. AU - Cho, Sung Ho. AU - Park, Jong Soo. AU - Choi, Seung Hoon. AU - Kim, Sung Hyun. PY - 2006/6/1. Y1 - 2006/6/1. N2 - The effects of magnesium on platinum catalyst used for the preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell applications are investigated. The CO conversion and selectivity on Pt-Mg/Al2O3 for a H2-rich stream are 93.1 and 62.0%, respectively, but only 70.2 and 46.89% on Pt/Al2O3. The superior activity of Pt-Mg/Al2O3 for the preferential oxidation of CO is due to an increase in the hydroxyl groups that results from an increase in basicity with the addition of Mg, as well as to an increase in the electron density on the surface of the Pt catalyst. Moreover, the content of hydroxyl groups on the Pt catalysts is promoted by water vapour.. AB - The effects of magnesium on platinum catalyst used for the preferential ...

AU - Yokoyama, T.. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - In an attempt to estimate the influences of CO on the CO2 Bohr effect and the 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (DPG) effect linked to the reversible binding of O2 to the hemoglobin molecule (Hb), O2 dissociation curves of human blood in the presence of CO were investigated at 37 degrees C over a DPG concentration ranging from 2.2 to 4.3 mmol/(1RBC) and a pH range of 7.2 to 7.6. The sample with a low DPG concentration was made by incubating whole blood for 6 hrs, whereas the saturation of Hb with CO, SCO in the sample was adjusted by anaerobically mixing completely carboxygenated blood with that free of O2 and CO so as to give the final SCO at either 0, 10, 15, 20, 40 or 50%. The blood samples thus prepared were diluted at 1:100 in isotonic buffer solution and were ...
We have examined the adsorption behaviors of carbon monoxide (CO) molecule on TiO2 anatase supported Au overlayers. The results of density functional theory (DFT) calculations were used in order to gain insights into the effects of the adsorption of CO molecules on the considered hybrid nanostructures. We have investigated different adsorption geometries of CO over the nanoparticles. CO molecule is preferentially adsorbed on the surface of Au atoms with significant adsorption energies. It was found that the CO molecule moves preferentially towards the Au atoms when it was positioned at the top Au sites of the nanoparticle. Here, we have focused on the adsorption of CO on the studied system, and the major point is that the charge is transferred from the CO molecule to the nanoparticle. The results suggest that the oxygen atom has a little mutual interaction with the surface Au atoms. We have summarized the results of density functional theory calculations including adsorption energies, Mulliken charge
Strong correlations of O3-CH2O, O3-CO and CO-CH2O were observed during the Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality (DISCOVER-AQ) aircraft experiment in July 2011 over the Washington-Baltimore area. The linear regression slopes of observed O3-CH2O, O3-CO, and CO-CH2O do not vary significantly with time (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or altitude in the boundary layer. These observed relationships are simulated well by a regional chemical transport model. Using tagged-tracer simulations, we find that biogenic isoprene oxidation makes the largest contribution to the regression slope of O3-CH2O across much of the eastern United States, providing a good indicator for O3 enhanced by biogenic isoprene oxidation. In contrast, the regression slope of O3-CO is controlled by both anthropogenic and biogenic emissions. Therefore, we use the CO-CH2O relationship to separate biogenic from anthropogenic contributions to CO. By combining these ...

The main indoor air pollutant that can cause headaches is carbon monoxide. Environmental tobacco smoke and volatile organic compounds can also cause headaches, but irritant symptoms of the eyes and throat are likely to be more prominent with those sources. The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide inhalation include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, difficulty in concentrating, shortness of breath and visual changes. Less frequent symptoms include chest pain, loss of consciousness, abdominal pain and muscle cramping.2 The circulatory and nervous systems are often affected because of their fixed oxygen needs: patients who have inhaled carbon monoxide may present with signs of myocardial ischemia, hypotension, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, mental confusion, clumsiness, emotional lability, impaired judgement, diminished visual acuity, stupor or coma.20 Carbon monoxide poisoning is considered a disease with a thousand faces. 20 Its classic mask - cherry-red lips, cyanosis and ...
Carbon monoxide (CO) is generated wherever combustion occurs, including the operation of gasoline engines, as well as heating and cooking appliances. It is invisible, odorless, tasteless, and deadly. Faulty venting or even a wind shift can create a dangerous situation, particularly in confined areas like boat cabins. Typical symptoms of CO exposure can be mistaken for the flu or seasickness, making accurate on board CO detection a necessity.. The CO Alarm uses a microprocessor to measure and accumulate CO levels. Using the principle of Time Weighted Averaging (TWA), the CO Alarm monitors CO concentration, temperature, and time to calculate levels of Carboxyhemoglobin (COHb). COHb is the degree to which the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood is impeded by the union of carbon monoxide to the hemoglobin and is expressed as a percentage. In simpler terms, our bodies prefer absorbing CO to oxygen, and COHb is the ratio of absorbed carbon monoxide to oxygen in the bloodstream. The CO Alarm ...

All Iowans are being reminded about the importance of carbon monoxide detectors after the weekend deaths of two people in Mason City. The towns fire chief Bob Platts says there was a big push to put carbon monoxide detectors in homes 15 to 20 years ago, and if yours is that old, its overdue to be replaced. Carbon monoxide detectors, similar to smoke detectors, they do have a shelf life and when theyre used, they are good for about five years, so Im guessing theres probably a number of them out there that probably are not up to date, he says.. Platts says if you are going to have a carbon monoxide detector in your home, make sure its installed in a proper place. He suggests placing it in a sleeping area or a common area like in a hallway in between bedrooms. He says you should hang it about five feet off the floor because thats about the level that C-O is mixing with air.. Platts says you wont be able to notice carbon monoxide in your home without a detector. Its colorless and ...
Early this month a teenage boy died and 14 others were hospitalized for carbon monoxide poisoning due to a malfunctioning indoor pool heater. While this tragedy is shocking, it is unfortunately not the first time this has happened. Carbon monoxide is produced when fuel is burned, and when too much of it is present in the air, it replaces oxygen within our red blood cells causing significant tissue and muscle damage. Prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide can cause massive brain damage and death. Some of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are dizziness, weakness, fatigue, vomiting, and confusion. If you believe you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you must get yourself to an open air space as soon as possible before you are rendered unconscious. With proper installation, ventilation and maintenance, there should never be any issues with a carbon monoxide leak from a pool heater causing personal injury. Sadly in these cases, malfunctioning machinery and negligence may have formulated ...

PY - 2009/7/1. Y1 - 2009/7/1. N2 - Carbon monoxide derived from degradation of heme by heme oxygenase or carbon monoxide releasing molecules (CORMs) has been demonstrated to decrease thrombosis in vivo and to weakly inhibit platelet aggregation. We tested the hypothesis that carbon monoxide released from tricarbonyldichlororuthenium (II) dimer (CORM-2) would diminish the velocity of formation and strength of plasma thrombi as determined by thrombelastography. Normal plasma was exposed to 0 or 100 μmol/l CORM-2 or inactivated CORM-2 (iCORM-2), with coagulation initiated with tissue factor or celite (n ≤ 8 per condition). Additional experiments utilized factor XIII (FXIII) deficient plasma activated with celite. Coagulation kinetics was monitored with thrombelastography for 15 min. CORM-2, and to a ...
2015 Haugaa et al. licensee BioMed Central. Introduction: Tissue reperfusion following hemorrhagic shock may paradoxically cause tissue injury and organ dysfunction by mitochondrial free radical expression. Both nitrite and carbon monoxide (CO) may protect from this reperfusion injury by limiting mitochondrial free radial production. We explored the effects of very small doses of inhaled nitrite and CO on tissue injury in a porcine model of hemorrhagic shock. Methods: Twenty pigs (mean wt. 30.6kg, range 27.2 to 36.4kg) had microdialysis catheters inserted in muscle, peritoneum, and liver to measure lactate, pyruvate, glucose, glycerol, and nitrite. Nineteen of the pigs were bled at a rate of 20ml/min to a mean arterial pressure of 30mmHg and kept between 30 and 40mmHg for 90minutes and then resuscitated. One pig was instrumented but not bled (sham). Hemorrhaged animals were randomized to inhale nothing (control, n=7), 11mg nitrite (nitrite, n=7) or 250ppm CO (CO, n=5) over 30minutes before fluid ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Adsorbed CO at polycrystalline copper in phosphate buffered solution. AU - Salimon, Jumat. PY - 2007/7. Y1 - 2007/7. N2 - The adsorption of CO at polycrystalline copper surface was investigated spectroscopically. It was found that CO adsorbed as a linear adsorbed CO, Cu-COL and was a dominant species on copper surface at low CO concentration. A Cu-COL was electrochemically converted to a bridge bonded CO, Cu-COB at a high CO concentration condition. Increasing the CO surface coverage, θco will increase the formation of adsorbed bridge bonded CO. nitrogen gas purging treatment was used to examine the stability of an adsorbed CO through the evacuation process. The result showed that Cu-COB remained intact while Cu-COL, was completely removed from the copper surface. It suggests that Cu-COL, may involve in a weak bonding to a copper surface such as in a physisorbed interaction, while Cu-CoB, consists much stronger bonding such as a chemisorbed interaction. The N2 purging treatment ...

Background Carbon monoxide (CO) synthesized by heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) exerts antinociceptive effects during inflammation but its role during neuropathic pain remains unknown. Our objective is to investigate the exact contribution of CO derived from HO-1 in the modulation of neuropathic pain and the mechanisms implicated. Methodology/Principal Findings We evaluated the antiallodynic and antihyperalgesic effects of CO following sciatic nerve injury in wild type (WT) or inducible nitric oxide synthase knockout (NOS2-KO) mice using two carbon monoxide-releasing molecules (CORM-2 and CORM-3) and an HO-1 inducer (cobalt protoporphyrin IX, CoPP) daily administered from days 10 to 20 after injury. The effects of CORM-2 and CoPP on the expression of HO-1, heme oxygenase 2 (HO-2), neuronal nitric oxide synthase (NOS1) and NOS2 as well as a microglial marker (CD11b/c) were also assessed at day 20 after surgery in WT and NOS2-KO mice. In WT mice, the main neuropathic pain symptoms induced by nerve injury were

When we breathe it, carbon monoxide combines with with the red blood cells in the blood and displaces the oxygen our bodies need to survive. Carbon monoxide combines with the red blood cells over 200 times more easily than oxygen and creates a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation. Carbon monoxide, instead of oxygen, then enters the vital organs through the bloodstream. Our organ tissues require oxygen; without it, our organs start to asphyxiate or suffocate. It takes the body much longer to eliminate carbon monoxide, however its absorption is very fast. ...
Carbon monoxide is produced from the partial oxidation of carbon-containing compounds; it forms when there is not enough oxygen to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), such as when operating a stove or an internal combustion engine in an enclosed space. In the presence of oxygen, including atmospheric concentrations, carbon monoxide burns with a blue flame, producing carbon dioxide.[11] Coal gas, which was widely used before the 1960s for domestic lighting, cooking, and heating, had carbon monoxide as a significant fuel constituent. Some processes in modern technology, such as iron smelting, still produce carbon monoxide as a byproduct.[12] A large quantity of CO byproduct is formed during the oxidative processes for the production of chemicals. For this reason, the process off-gases have to be purified. On the other hand, considerable research efforts are made in order to optimize the process conditions,[13] develop catalyst with improved selectivity [14] and to understand the reaction pathways ...
