Widely distributed enzymes that carry out oxidation-reduction reactions in which one atom of the oxygen molecule is incorporated into the organic substrate; the other oxygen atom is reduced and combined with hydrogen ions to form water. They are also known as monooxygenases or hydroxylases. These reactions require two substrates as reductants for each of the two oxygen atoms. There are different classes of monooxygenases depending on the type of hydrogen-providing cosubstrate (COENZYMES) required in the mixed-function oxidation.

Internal electron transfer between hemes and Cu(II) bound at cysteine beta93 promotes methemoglobin reduction by carbon monoxide. (1/4934)

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)

Negligible amount of copper in hepatic L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase. (2/4934)

During the purification of L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase, a protohemoprotein from rat liver, both copper and heme contents of the preparations were found to be progressively increased as purification proceeded. However, the greater part of copper was removed in the late stages of the purification giving a copper to heme ratio less than 0.4. The small amounts of copper could further be reduced by one-half, by a mild treatment of enzyme with chelators such as ethylenedi aminetetraacetate, without any accompanying decrease in enzymatic activity. Since the turnover number of these enzyme preparations expressed per mol of enzyme-bound heme, 200 to 277 min-1 at 25 degrees, were either comparable to or slightly higher than those reported with homogeneous enzyme preparations, the heme in the preparation was considered to be of fully active L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase and, therefore, such a small ratio of copper to heme, 0.1 to 0.3, indicated that copper is not a constituent of L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase of rat liver. The findings were thus inconsistent with the results of Brady et al. (Brady, F. O., Monaco, M. E. Forman, H. J. Schutz, G., and Feigelson, P. (1972) J. Biol. Chem. 247, 7915-7922), who found that L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase contained 2 g atoms of copper and 2 mol of heme/mol of enzyme. Possible reasons for this discrepancy have been discussed.  (+info)

The role of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Met1p and Met8p in sirohaem and cobalamin biosynthesis. (3/4934)

MET1 and MET8 mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae can be complemented by Salmonella typhimurium cysG, indicating that the genes are involved in the transformation of uroporphyrinogen III into sirohaem. In the present study, we have demonstrated complementation of defined cysG mutants of Sal. typhimurium and Escherichia coli, with either MET1 or MET8 cloned in tandem with Pseudomonas denitrificans cobA. The conclusion drawn from these experiments is that MET1 encodes the S-adenosyl-l-methionine uroporphyrinogen III transmethylase activity, and MET8 encodes the dehydrogenase and chelatase activities (all three functions are encoded by Sal. typhimurium and E. coli cysG). MET8 was further cloned into pET14b to allow expression of the protein with an N-terminal His-tag. After purification, the functions of the His-tagged Met8p were studied in vitro by assay with precorrin-2 in the presence of NAD+ and Co2+. The results demonstrated that Met8p acts as a dehydrogenase and chelatase in the biosynthesis of sirohaem. Moreover, despite the fact that S. cerevisiae does not make cobalamins de novo, we have shown also that MET8 is able to complement cobalamin cobaltochelatase mutants and have revealed a subtle difference in the early stages of the anaerobic cobalamin biosynthetic pathways between Sal. typhimurium and Bacillus megaterium.  (+info)

Structure of a cytochrome P450-redox partner electron-transfer complex. (4/4934)

The crystal structure of the complex between the heme- and FMN-binding domains of bacterial cytochrome P450BM-3, a prototype for the complex between eukaryotic microsomal P450s and P450 reductase, has been determined at 2.03 A resolution. The flavodoxin-like flavin domain is positioned at the proximal face of the heme domain with the FMN 4.0 and 18.4 A from the peptide that precedes the heme-binding loop and the heme iron, respectively. The heme-binding peptide represents the most efficient and coupled through-bond electron pathway to the heme iron. Substantial differences between the FMN-binding domains of P450BM-3 and microsomal P450 reductase, observed around the flavin-binding sites, are responsible for different redox properties of the FMN, which, in turn, control electron flow to the P450.  (+info)

Cloning of Bacillus stearothermophilus ctaA and heme A synthesis with the CtaA protein produced in Escherichia coli. (5/4934)

The Bacillus stearothermophilus ctaA gene, which is required for heme A synthesis, was found upstream of the ctaBCDEF/caaEABCD gene cluster as in B. subtilis and B. firmus. The deduced protein sequence indicate that CtaA is a 35-kDa intrinsic membrane protein with seven hydrophobic segments. Alignment of CtaA sequences showed conserved residues including histidines that may be involved in heme B binding and substrate binding. Expression of ctaA in E. coli resulted in increased formation of a membrane-bound b-type cytochrome, heme A production, and severe growth inhibition. Furthermore, B. stearothermophilus CtaA produced in E. coli was found to catalyze the conversion of heme O to heme A in vitro.  (+info)

Coupling of the oxygen-linked interaction energy for inositol hexakisphosphate and bezafibrate binding to human HbA0. (6/4934)

The energetics of signal propagation between different functional domains (i.e. the binding sites for O2, inositol hexakisphospate (IHP), and bezafibrate (BZF)) of human HbA0 was analyzed at different heme ligation states and through the use of a stable, partially heme ligated intermediate. Present data allow three main conclusions to be drawn, and namely: (i) IHP and BZF enhance each others binding as the oxygenation proceeds, the coupling free energy going from close to zero in the deoxy state to -3.4 kJ/mol in the oxygenated form; (ii) the simultaneous presence of IHP and BZF stabilizes the hemoglobin T quaternary structure at very low O2 pressures, but as oxygenation proceeds it does not impair the transition toward the R structure, which indeed occurs also under these conditions; (iii) under room air pressure (i.e. pO2 = 150 torr), IHP and BZF together induce the formation of an asymmetric dioxygenated hemoglobin tetramer, whose features appear reminiscent of those suggested for transition state species (i.e. T- and R-like tertiary conformation(s) within a quaternary R-like structure).  (+info)

Chlamydomonas chloroplast ferrous hemoglobin. Heme pocket structure and reactions with ligands. (7/4934)

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)

Modulation of the remote heme site geometry of recombinant mouse neuronal nitric-oxide synthase by the N-terminal hook region. (8/4934)

The role of two essential residues at the N-terminal hook region of neuronal nitric-oxide synthase (nNOS) in nitric-oxide synthase activity was investigated. Full-length mouse nNOS proteins containing single-point mutations of Thr-315 and Asp-314 to alanine were produced in the Escherichia coli and baculovirus-insect cell expression systems. The molecular properties of the mutant proteins were analyzed in detail by biochemical, optical, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopic techniques and compared with those of the wild-type enzyme. Replacement of Asp-314 by Ala altered the geometry around the heme site and the substrate-binding pocket of the heme domain and abrogated the ability of nNOS to form catalytically active dimers. Replacement of Thr-315 by Ala reduced the protein stability and altered the geometry around the heme site, especially in the absence of bound (6R)-5,6,7, 8-tetrahydro-L-biopterin cofactor. These results suggest that Asp-314 and Thr-315 both play critical structural roles in stabilizing the heme domain and subunit interactions in mouse nNOS.  (+info)

The heme chaperone CcmE is a novel protein that binds heme covalently via a histidine residue as part of its essential function in the process of cytochrome c biogenesis in many bacteria as well as plant mitochondria. In the continued absence of a structure of the holoform of CcmE, identification of the heme ligands is an important step in understanding the molecular function of this protein and the role of covalent heme binding to CcmE during the maturation of c-type cytochromes. In this work, we present spectroscopic data that provide insight into the ligation of the heme iron in the soluble domain of CcmE from Escherichia coli. Resonance Raman spectra demonstrated that one of the heme axial ligands is a histidine residue and that the other is likely to be Tyr134. In addition, the properties of the heme resonances of the holo-protein as compared with those of a form of CcmE with non-covalently bound heme provide evidence for the modification of one of the heme vinyl side chains by the protein, most
Our understanding of heme sensing and the regulation of heme-iron acquisition by fungal pathogens is incomplete. Heme contains ∼80% of the iron in vertebrate hosts, and we previously demonstrated that heme is an important iron source for C. neoformans (35, 74). In the present study, we constructed a strain encoding a cytosolic heme sensor to address our goals of (i) understanding heme-iron acquisition during fungal proliferation and pathogenesis and (ii) identifying potential heme/iron-related targets for antifungal therapy. Initially, we validated the behavior of the heme sensor by demonstrating responsiveness to exogenous hemin by established microscopic, fluorimetric, and flow cytometry methods (41). Importantly, we demonstrated that the sensor detected the reduction in cytosolic heme levels expected to result from impaired endocytosis. Specifically, reduced cytosolic heme levels were found in cells treated with CPZ and in mutants such as the cig1 and las17 mutants that have lower heme ...
Corynebacteria contain a heme uptake system encoded in hmuTUV genes, in which HmuT protein acts as a heme binding protein to transport heme to the cognate transporter HmuUV. The crystal structure of HmuT from Corynebacterium glutamicum (CgHmuT) reveals that heme is accommodated in the central cleft with His141 and Tyr240 as the axial ligands and that Tyr240 forms a hydrogen bond with Arg242. In this work, the crystal structures of H141A, Y240A, and R242A mutants were determined to understand the role of these residues for the heme binding of CgHmuT. Overall and heme environmental structures of these mutants were similar to those of the wild type, suggesting that there is little conformational change in the heme-binding cleft during heme transport reaction with binding and the dissociation of heme. A loss of one axial ligand or the hydrogen bonding interaction with Tyr240 resulted in an increase in the redox potential of the heme for CgHmuT to be reduced by dithionite, though the wild type was not
This chapter focuses on describing the general features of heme acquisition systems by using the most extensively studied heme transport systems. General heme receptors have been identified in numerous bacteria. These receptors recognize either free heme or heme bound to host-carrier proteins. Three examples of general heme receptors, which can recognize numerous heme-containing substrates, are HmuR of Yersinia pestis, HemR of Yersinia enterocolitica, and HmuR of Porphyromonas gingivalis. HpuAB is unusual among heme receptors because it consists of two outer membrane-associated proteins. Current understanding of these proteins is based on the elucidated function of nonheme permeases and ATPases. The newly identified heme utilization systems of these three bacteria have laid the foundation for our understanding of heme-iron utilization in gram-positive bacteria. Structural information about receptors and other system components will undoubtedly follow, allowing one to investigate structure-function
Abstract: A recombinant bacterial expression system that generates 13C-labeled heme or 15N-labeled heme in functional cytochrome P450 enzymes and other heme-containing systems is reported here using a mutant strain of Escherichia coli (HU227) in which the HemA gene is inactive. By synthesizing several isotopomers of aminolevulinic acid with 13C or 15N at different locations, isotopes have been incorporated with high abundance into the heme cofactor of five different cytochrome P450 isoforms, along with one peroxidase. Confirmed both 13C- and 15N-incorporation; spectral and catalytic assays show the labeled enzymes produced in this system are functional.. Isotopic labeling of the heme cofactor in cytochrome p450 and other heme proteins. ...
article{44846ede-d441-4e41-b7e9-5579df433b3c, abstract = {Heme A is a prosthetic group of many respiratory oxidases. It is synthesized from protoheme IX (heme B) seemingly with heme O as a stable intermediate. The Bacillus subtilis ctaA and ctaB genes are required for heme A and heme O synthesis, respectively (B. Svensson, M. Lubben, and L. Hederstedt, Mol. Microbiol. 10:193-201, 1993). Tentatively, CtaA is involved in the monooxygenation and oxidation of the methyl side group on porphyrin ring D in heme A synthesis from heme B. B. subtilis ctaA and ctaB on plasmids in both B. subtilis and Escherichia coli were found to result in a novel membrane-bound heme-containing protein with the characteristics of a low-spin b type cytochrome.

Purified cytochrome isolated from both B. subtilis and E. coli membranes contained one polypeptide identified as ...
To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first report suggesting a molecular mechanism by which heme regulates humoral immunity. Together with our recent report,15 our present results provide strong evidence that heme augments plasma cell differentiation by inhibiting Bach2, and thus increasing the population of Blimp-1-expressing cells. Because Blimp-1 is the master regulator of plasma cell differentiation,19,41 its derepression by heme through Bach2 inactivation may fine-tune the response of humoral immunity. In addition, heme may regulate the B-cell responses by inducing the expression of HO-1, which possesses antioxidant and immunomodulatory functions.9. In the spectral analyses, the 432-nm absorption band (6-coordinate heme-binding mode) and the 366-nm absorption band (5-coordinate heme-binding mode) both became apparent on addition of heme (Figure 1B). These results suggested that Bach2 bound to heme directly and had at least 2 distinct binding modes. Moreover, the spectral changes ...
A previous study in rabbit coronary microvessel endothelial cells demonstrated that upregulation of HO-1 leading to reduction in cellular heme levels decreases basal prostaglandin synthesis.7 Our present study shows that prostaglandin production is decreased in human femoral artery endothelial cells overexpressing HO-1 owing to treatment with SnCl2, a chemical HO-1 inducer, or to transfection with the human HO-1 gene, both of which interventions are documented to reduce heme levels in endothelial cells.8 On the other hand, a reciprocal relationship between HO-1 overexpression and prostaglandin production is not obtained in endothelial cells treated with heme or with ZnDPP.. As previously reported, and confirmed in our study, heme and HO inhibitors such as ZnDPP are powerful inducers of HO-1 protein.7,20 Importantly, the upregulation of HO-1 expression produced by these agents is unlikely to produce depletion of cellular heme, which could explain our finding that heme treatment increases and ...
Two CO-isotope sensitive lines have been detected in the overtone region of the resonance Raman spectra of CO-bound hemeproteins. One line is assigned as the overtone of the Fe-CO stretching mode and is located in the 1000- to 1070-cm-1 region. The other line is found in the 1180- to 1210-cm-1 region and is assigned as a combination between a porphyrin mode, nu 7, and the Fe-CO stretching mode. The high intensities of these lines, which in the terminal oxidase class of proteins are of the same order as those of the fundamental stretching mode, indicate that the mechanism of enhancement for modes involving the Fe-CO moiety is different from that for the modes of the porphyrin macrocycle and call for reexamination of Raman theory of porphyrins as applied to axial ligands. The anharmonicity of the electronic potential function was evaluated, revealing that in the terminal oxidases the anharmonicity is greater than in the other heme proteins that were examined, suggesting a distinctive interaction ...
Heme is a porphyrin that is coordinated with Fe(II). One of the most important classes of chelating agents in nature are the porphyrins [1]. A porphyrin molecule can coordinate to a metal using the four nitrogen atoms as electron-pair donors. In the body, the iron in the heme is coordinated to the four nitrogen atoms of the porphyrin and also to a nitrogen atom from a histidine residue, one of the amino-acid residues in hemoglobin) of the hemoglobin proteins. The sixth protein, coordination site, around the iron of the heme is occupied by O2 when the hemoglobin is oxygenated. The heme group is nonplanar when it is not bound to oxygen [2]. The iron is pulled out of the plane of the porphyrin, towards the histidine residue to which it is attached. This nonplanar configuration is characteristic of the deoxygenated heme group, and is often referred to as being domed shape [2]. When the Fe heme group binds to an oxygen molecule, the porphyrin ring adopts a planar configuration and hence the Fe lies ...
The treatment of rats with cis-platinum (cis-diamminedichloroplatinum) for 1, 3 or 7 days elicited vastly different responses in the liver and the kidney in activities of enzymes of haem-metabolism pathway and gamma-glutamyl-cycle enzymes. The differences resided in the magnitude, direction and the time course of responses. In general, the liver was by far less severely affected, and when a response was elicited, it displayed an earlier onset (1-3 days), with a return to normal at 7 days. In the kidney, however, the effects were notable after 3 days of treatment, and became more pronounced at 7 days. Specifically, the activity of 5-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) synthetase and contents of cytochrome P-450 and the microsomal haem were decreased in the liver. In contrast, in the kidney, cytochrome P-450 and haem concentrations were significantly increased, with no change in ALA synthetase activity. The increase in the kidney haem content appeared to reflect an increased formation of haem, as suggested ...
Our lives depend on heme. As part of hemoglobin, it carries oxygen to our tissues. As part of cytochrome c, it helps transform the energy in food into the energy-rich molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) that powers biochemical reactions that keep us alive and moving. As part of cytochrome P450, it helps break down toxic chemicals in our bodies. What is this thing called heme? And, how does it do such amazing work inside our bodies? Scientists know that heme is a large ringed molecule called a porphyrin that has an iron atom sitting in the middle of it. In the heme molecule shown at right, the iron atom is green and the atoms in the porphyrin ring are carbon (teal), nitrogen (dark blue), hydrogen (not shown), and oxygen (red). In the figure below, the heme is embedded in (and bonded to) cytochrome c. Understanding how heme functions at the biomolecular level is a hot research topic for biophysicists, including Research Associate Byung Moon Cho, Graduate Student Fredrik Carlsson, and Associate ...
The pronounced vascular pathologies described for both an HO-1-deficient human and mice in which this enzyme has been knocked out suggest that defective heme catabolism (and, by implication, heme itself) can have serious pathologic effects. Whereas heme may be directly cytotoxic, the present investigations were an attempt to determine whether the observed in vivo effects of HO-1 deficiency might, at least in part, represent an indirect process. Specifically, we hypothesized that extensive, heme- or heme iron-mediated oxidation of LDL might produce oxidized forms of LDL with appreciable cytotoxicity.. In support of this concept, LDL isolated from plasma preincubated with either heme or metHb is markedly cytotoxic to cultured endothelial cells. Furthermore, similarly toxic LDL was present in the plasma of the HO-1-deficient child. Conversion of ferroHb to metHb appears to be essential for the ensuing oxidation of LDL, presumably because metHb readily releases heme, whereas ferroHb does not. That ...

Mitochondrial cytochrome c (cytc) plays an important role in programmed cell death upon binding to cardiolipin (CL), a negatively charged phospholipid of the inner mitochondrial membrane (IMM). Although this binding has been thoroughly investigated in solution, little is known on the nature and reactivity of the adduct (cytc-CL) immobilized at IMM. In this work, we have studied electrochemically cytc-CL immobilized on a hydrophobic self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of decane-1-thiol. This construct would reproduce the motional restriction and the nonpolar environment experienced by cytc-CL at IMM. Surface-enhanced resonance Raman (SERR) studies allowed the axial heme iron ligands to be identified, which were found to be oxidation state dependent and differ from those of cytc-CL in solution. In particular, immobilized cytc-CL experiences an equilibrium between a low-spin (LS) 6c His/His and a high-spin (HS) 5c His/− coordination states. The former prevails in the oxidized and the latter in the ...
Hemoproteins have diverse biological functions including the transportation of diatomic gases, chemical catalysis, diatomic gas detection, and electron transfer. The heme iron serves as a source or sink of electrons during electron transfer or redox chemistry. In peroxidase reactions, the porphyrin molecule also serves as an electron source. In the transportation or detection of diatomic gases, the gas binds to the heme iron. During the detection of diatomic gases, the binding of the gas ligand to the heme iron induces conformational changes in the surrounding protein.[5] In general, diatomic gases only bind to the reduced heme, as ferrous Fe(II) while most peroxidases cycle between Fe(III) and Fe(IV) and hemeproteins involved in mitochondrial redox, oxidation-reduction, cycle between Fe(II) and Fe(III). It has been speculated that the original evolutionary function of hemoproteins was electron transfer in primitive sulfur-based photosynthesis pathways in ancestral cyanobacteria-like organisms ...
Heme-containing catalases have been extensively studied, revealing the roles of many residues, the existence of two heme orientations, flipped 180 degrees relative to one another along the propionate-vinyl axis, and the presence of both heme b and heme d. The focus of this report is a residue, situated adjacent to the vinyl groups of the heme at the entrance of the lateral channel, with an unusual main chain geometry that is conserved in all catalase structures so far determined. In Escherichia coli catalase HPII, the residue is Ile274, and replacing it with Gly, Ala, and Val, found at the same location in other catalases, results in a reduction in catalytic efficiency, a reduced intensity of the Soret absorbance band, and a mixture of heme orientations and species. The reduced turnover rates and higher H(2)O(2) concentrations required to attain equivalent reaction velocities are explained in terms of less efficient containment of substrate H(2)O(2) in the heme cavity arising from easier escape ...

The transport and intracellular trafficking of heme biosynthesis intermediates are crucial for hemoglobin production, which is a critical process in developing red cells. Here, we profiled gene expression in terminally differentiating murine fetal liver-derived erythroid cells to identify regulators of heme metabolism. We determined that TMEM14C, an inner mitochondrial membrane protein that is enriched in vertebrate hematopoietic tissues, is essential for erythropoiesis and heme synthesis in vivo and in cultured erythroid cells. In mice, TMEM14C deficiency resulted in porphyrin accumulation in the fetal liver, erythroid maturation arrest, and embryonic lethality due to profound anemia. Protoporphyrin IX synthesis in TMEM14C-deficient erythroid cells was blocked, leading to an accumulation of porphyrin precursors. The heme synthesis defect in TMEM14C-deficient cells was ameliorated with a protoporphyrin IX analog, indicating that TMEM14C primarily functions in the terminal steps of the heme ...
Synchronization of circadian oscillators with the outside world is achieved by the acute effects of light on the levels of one or more clock components. In mammals the PAS transcription factors Clock, NPAS2, and BMAL1 regulate gene expression as a function of the day-night cycle. Both PAS domains of NPAS2 were found to bind heme as a prosthetic group, form a gas-regulated sensor, and exert heme-status control of DNA binding in vitro. In a microarray analysis comparing overall changes in brain transcript levels between mice subjected to light pulses during the dark phase with animals maintained in darkness, we traced consistent changes in more than 200 different transcripts. Of these, 20 are associated with heme and iron biosynthesis and catabolism. A model for the pathway of induction of heme and iron homeostasis-related transcripts resulting from light pulses suggests that light signals (as stressors) induce transcription of heme oxygenase 2 (Hmox2) and cytochrome P450 oxidoreductase (Por), ...
The heme complex is an iron ion bound to a porphyrin ligand, which is a cage like molecule consisting of four tetradentate square planar nitrogen molecules. When the heme complex binds to a protein, it creates myglobin. Myglobin is important because the structure of the molecule allows the iron ion to bind to O2 molecules, absorbing and de-absorbing O2 as the local pressure of oxygen changes. This allows O2 to be transported in muscle cells throughout the body ...

Oxidative stress, defined as an alteration in the balance between the production and removal of reactive oxygen species (ROS), plays a central role in many cardiovascular diseases. ROS disturb the vasoprotective nitric oxide-soluble guanylate cyclase-cyclic GMP (NO-sGC-cGMP) signaling cascade by downregulation of the NO-sensitive form of sGC and, in addition, a direct impairment of this crucial enzyme by oxidizing its prosthetic heme moiety. Through a high-throughput screen we identified non NO-releasing sGC activators, such as BAY 58-2667, acting more potently at the oxidized or heme free recombinant sGC than at the native form. Here, we show that the activity of BAY 58-2667 is potentiated in cells, aortas from different species and in vivo under oxidative stress conditions (ROS generating systems, ODQ, and hypercholesteremia) indicating the presence of heme-free or oxidized sGC under pathophysiological conditions. Moreover, in various long-term trials beneficial effects on morbidity and ...
Mechanism Of Heme Iron Absorption. Heme iron is easier for the body to absorb than non-heme iron because of a certain protective structure known as a porphyrin ring. This ring actually helps the iron to be absorbed by protecting it from the effects of other elements or compounds in proximity.. The iron is effectively shielded by this ring, so any acids or phytates or other potentially harmful elements simply cannot interfere with the absorption process. In addition, the presence of certain proteins in the system also helps to give the bodys heme absorption rate a boost. This means that if you eat iron with certain other protein-rich products, your body will be able to absorb the heme iron more easily.. All of these reasons help to make heme iron the more effective form. If you suffer from an iron deficiency, doctors will usually suggest you start eating more meat and other heme-rich foods.. Your body uses heme and non-heme iron in different ways. Your body needs to convert non-heme iron to a ...
Folding of cytochrome c from its low pH guanidine hydrochloride (Gdn-HCl) denatured state revealed a new intermediate, a five-coordinate high spin species with a water molecule coordinated to the heme. Incorporation of this five-coordinated intermediate into the previously reported ligand exchange model can quantitatively account for the observed folding kinetics. In this new model, unfolded cytochrome c is converted to its native structure through an obligatory folding intermediate, the histidine-water coordination state, whereas the five-coordinate state and a bis-histidine state are off-pathway intermediates. When the concentration of Gdn-HCl in the refolding solution was increased, an acceleration of the conversion from the bis-histidine coordinated state to the histidine-water coordinated state was observed, demonstrating that the reaction requires unfolding of the mis-organized polypeptide structure associated with the bis-histidine state.
File:P450cycle.svg The active site of cytochrome P450 contains a heme iron center. The iron is tethered to the P450 protein via a thiolate ligand derived from a cysteine residue. This cysteine and several flanking residues are highly conserved in known CYPs and have the formal PROSITE signature consensus pattern [FW] - [SGNH] - x - [GD] - {F} - [RKHPT] - {P} - C - [LIVMFAP] - [GAD].[4] Because of the vast variety of reactions catalyzed by CYPs, the activities and properties of the many CYPs differ in many aspects. In general, the P450 catalytic cycle proceeds as follows: 1: The substrate binds to the active site of the enzyme, in close proximity to the heme group, on the side opposite to the peptide chain. The bound substrate induces a change in the conformation of the active site, often displacing a water molecule from the distal axial coordination position of the heme iron[5], and sometimes changing the state of the heme iron from low-spin to high-spin[6]. This gives rise to a change in the ...

Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A Streptococcus) is a Gram-positive bacterial pathogen that causes significant superficial and invasive diseases. Iron acquisition is an important component of GAS pathogenesis in the human host. The 10 gene sia operon of GAS is involved in the acquisition of iron via heme or heme-binding proteins and encodes an ABC transporter as well as the large multifunctional receptor Shr. Domain analysis of Shr shows that it contains two copies of the DUF1533 (domain of unknown function) in its N-terminal part and two NEAT (NEAr Transporter) domains. NEAT domains are found in variable copy number in surface proteins of Gram-positive pathogens and are implicated in binding to various ligands. A new recombinant Shr protein was cloned and a purification protocol was developed, improving the yield of the full-length protein. A solid phase binding assay was developed and used to demonstrate Shr binding to hemoglobin. Several truncated Shr proteins were expressed and purified: the N

Humans survive by constantly recycling iron, a metal that is an essential component of red blood cells, but which is toxic outside of those cells. More than 90 percent of the iron in an adult humans 25 trillion life-sustaining red blood cells is recycled from worn-out cells.. Almost 50 years ago scientists first began hypothesizing that our bodies must have a special protein container to safely transport heme -- the form of iron found in living things - during the breakdown and recycling of old red blood cells and other types of heme metabolism. Now a team of scientists from the University of Maryland, Harvard Medical School, the National Institutes of Health and the University of Utah School of Medicine have identified this long-sought heme-iron transporter and shown that it is the same HRG1 protein that a common microscopic worm, C. elegans, uses to transport heme. In humans, the iron in heme is the component that allows hemoglobin in red blood cells to carry the oxygen needed for ...
Biosynthesis of myeloperoxidase (MPO), a myeloid lysosomal hemoprotein critical for the optimal oxygen-dependent microbicidal activity of human neutrophils, is incompletely understood. The primary translation product undergoes cotranslational N-linked glycosylation with subsequent insertion of the Fe-containing prosthetic group into the peptide backbone, thereby converting the enzymatically inactive, heme- free apoproMPO into the peroxidatively active precursor, proMPO. Eventually, proMPO undergoes proteolytic processing into native, lysosomal MPO, with subunits of 59 and 13.5 Kd. We studied three unanswered questions regarding MPO biosynthesis: (1) At what point during MPO biosynthesis is the heme moiety inserted into the apoenzyme? (2) What consequences does heme-insertion have on subsequent processing events? (3) What role does the mannose-6-phosphate receptor (M6PR) system play in the delivery of MPO to the lysosome? Disruption of Golgi by brefeldin A (BFA) produced two major changes in MPO ...
A heme group is a prosthetic group consisting of a protoporphyrin ring and a central iron (Fe) atom. A protoporphyrin ring is made up of four pyrrole rings linked by methine bridges. Four methyl, two vinyl, and two propionate side chains are attached. Heme of hemoglobin protein is a prosthetic group of heterocyclic ring of porphyrin of an iron atom; the biological function of the group is for delivering oxygen to body tissues, such that bonding of ligand of gas molecules to the iron atom of the protein group changes the structure of the protein by amino acid group of histidine residue around the heme molecule. The iron lies in the center is an organic component called protoporphyrin, which is bound to four pyrrole nitrogen atom linked by a methine bridge that forms a tetrapyrrole ring. The iron can either be in the ferrous (Fe2+) or the ferric (Fe3+) oxidation state. However, it is only able to bind to oxygen when in the ferrous state. The iron can form two additional bonds in fifth and in sixth ...

Background:Nitrosylated and non-nitrosylated heme iron from red processed and non-processed meat have been associated with increased colorectal carcinogenesis. Mechanisms include oxidative processes. It has been hypothesized that dietary antioxidants could counteract the effects of heme iron. We investigated the relationships between heme iron intake and the risk of colorectal adenomas, and a potential interaction with the dietary antioxidant capacity, in the E3N prospective cohort study. Methods:The study included 17,397 women who underwent at least one colonoscopy. Among them, 1,409 were diagnosed with at least one first colorectal adenoma during the 103,253 person-years of follow-up. Dietary intake was measured by a semi-quantitative food history questionnaire. Hazard ratio (HR) estimates and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were obtained from Coxs proportional hazards models, adjusted for potential confounders. Results:Heme iron intake was positively associated with colorectal and colon ...
The data presented here support a distinct physiological role for PerR in GAS responses to peroxide. Unlike the upregulation of catalase, ahpCF, mrgA, and heme biosynthesis mediated by PerR in B. subtilis (25, 48), PerR in GAS mediates downregulation of DNA and protein metabolism as well as iron/heme uptake and does not upregulate any known peroxidase(s) or mrgA. Such a decrease in gene expression may be transient, but it would allow for DNA and protein damage repair before normal expression levels resume, similar to decreased DNA replication and cell division reported during the SOS response in other species (48, 66). The finding that a great number of repressed PerR-independent loci also encode proteins involved in DNA and protein metabolism, including rRNA/tRNA synthesis, further supports a model of decreased metabolic function upon oxidative challenge in GAS. The reduced iron/heme uptake coupled to increased Mn2+ import predicted by the adc operon upregulation in our studies is thought to ...

  • The conversion of protoporphyrin and iron to heme is catalyzed by a soluble enzyme prepared from rat liver. (sciencemag.org)
  • Heme A differs from heme B in that a methyl side chain at ring position 8 is oxidized into a formyl group, and one of the vinyl side chains, at ring position 2, has been replaced by an isoprenoid chain. (bionity.com)
  • Moreover, the iron tetrapyrrole heme will be attached to a vinyl side and an isoprenoid chain. (wikibooks.org)
  • Heme C functions a crucial role in apoptosis because some molecules of cytoplasmic cytochrome c must contain heme C. As a consequence, this will lead to cell destruction. (wikibooks.org)
  • Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction of heme breakdown and may have both antioxidant and pro-oxidant effects. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • NO is known to induce expression of heme oxygenase-1, an antioxidant enzyme in blood vessels. (ahajournals.org)
  • The organic nitrate pentaerythritol tetranitrate is devoid of nitrate tolerance, which has been attributed to the induction of the antioxidant enzyme heme oxygenase (HO)-1. (ahajournals.org)
  • Heme oxygenase -1 (HO-1) play a protective antioxidant role in the lung. (ersjournals.com)
  • We show that three key tyrosines residues, Tyr-18, Tyr-80, and Tyr-129, located in predicted transmembrane domains near the cytoplasmic leaflet of the plasma membrane, are important for heme transport. (umd.edu)
  • We previously demonstrated that the feline leukemia virus, subgroup C, receptor (FLVCR) exports cytoplasmic heme. (sciencemag.org)
  • We identified heme O by metabolic labeling and mass spectrometry. (usp.br)
  • INA and UNP decreased heme O biosynthesis and parasitemia as observed by oxido-reduction and metabolic labeling. (usp.br)
  • Heme D is another form of heme B. Instead, the hydroxylated propionic acid side chain forms a gamma-spirolactone. (wikibooks.org)
  • To date, there has been little suggestion of a role for heme in progression of plaque formation or vulnerability. (ahajournals.org)
  • Here we show that a distinct subset of TAMs (F4/80 hi CD115 hi C3aR hi CD88 hi ), endowed with high rates of heme catabolism by the stress-responsive enzyme heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), plays a critical role in shaping a prometastatic tumor microenvironment favoring immunosuppression, angiogenesis and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition.
