The structure of the nitrogenase MoFe-protein from Azotobacter vinelandii has been refined to Å resolution in two oxidation states. EPR studies on the crystals indicate that the structures correspond to the spectroscopically assigned oxidized (POX/MOX) and the native or dithionite-reduced (PN/MN) forms of the enzyme. Both MoFe-protein structures are essentially identical, Cited by: Abstract:Detailed comparative spectroscopic studies of Nd 3+ doped YAG nanocrystals, transparent ceramic and single crystal have been performed. Although most of the radiative spectral properties of Nd3+ are almost in good agreement between the three hosts, the non-radiative losses are. Organic Spectroscopic Structure Determination is a sophomore-level book with emphasis on structure problem solving. It consists of four sections that attempt to engage the imagination of the student. Taber has arranged the material in such a way that the students can work the problems and learn the procedures on their own, minimizing the time taken in lecture. Recent insights into how nitrogenase works have arisen from multiple advances, described here, including studies of high-resolution crystal structures. Numerous chapters discuss how microbes, plants, and animals synthesize these complex prosthetic groups, and why it is important to understand the chemistry and biogenesis of iron sulfur proteins.

Nitrogenase consists of two compon. Mo nitrogenase (N2ase) utilizes a two-component protein system, the catalytic MoFe and its electron-transfer partner FeP, to reduce atmospheric dinitrogen (N2) to ammonia (NH3).

The FeMo cofactor contained in the MoFe protein serves as the catalytic center for this reaction and has long inspired model chemistry oriented toward activating N2.

Before considering the enzyme, mechanistic scenarios for the protonation and reduction of N 2 in related small-molecule models are discussed. Particular emphasis is laid on describing DFT calculations of catalytic by: 1.

The presence of the FeMo cofactor within the FeMo protein of nitrogenase, i.e., the M center, is revealed through spectroscopic and redox studies. In the resting state of [FeMo], as isolated in the presence of dithionite, the M center has a distinct S = \(\frac{3}{2}\) EPR signal, which is discussed below (see Figure ).
