    A WO3 photoelectrode immobilizing a fibrous gold nanoparticle (AuNP) assembly using an amyloid-beta (A beta) peptide was constructed and its ability for photocurrent generation upon visible light irradiation was investigated. AuNPs attached using A beta peptide (A beta-AuNP) assemble with a fibrous structure at pH 4.5, which disperses at pH 11. The modified A beta-AuNPs are immobilized on the surface of WO3 fabricated on a fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) electrode (A beta-AuNPass@WO3/FTO or A beta-AuNPdis@WO3/FTO, respectively). The photocurrent generation response of the A beta-AuNPass@WO3/FTO electrode is clearly increased relative to that of A beta-AuNPdis@WO3/FTO upon visible light irradiation (lambda - 420-750 nm), indicating that the fibrous AuNP assembly enhances the visible light response of the WO3 photoelectrode.

    Gold nanoparticles immobilized on a gold electrode surface were modified with a heme moiety through gold-sulfur bonds and then treated with apocytochrome b(562) (apoCYT) to yield a reconstituted protein on the gold nanoparticles. Immobilization of apoCYT on the surface of the AuNP-modified electrode was confirmed by the charge-transfer resistance value R-CT determined using alternating-current electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The N 1s and Fe 2p peaks in the X-ray photoelectron spectrum support the reconstitution of the heme moiety on the surface of the AuNP electrode. The hemoprotein-immobilized electrode exhibits a ten-fold enhanced electrochemical response relative to the protein immobilized directly on the gold electrode.

    A method using biomolecules to precisely fabricate the morphology of metal nanoparticles immobilized on the surface of a semiconductor using biomolecules is described. A biotin moiety (Blot) is introduced onto the surface of a sold nanoparticle (AuNP) by covalent coupling with alpha-lipoic acid to assemble AuNPs in the presence of streptavidin (STV). The assembly of Biot-AuNP/STV is immobilized on the surface of TiO2 chemically modified with 1-(3-aminopropyl)silatrane (APS) to provide a positively charged surface. The Au content immobilized on the surface of TiO2 is clearly increased to 9.5 wt % (Au) as a result of the STV-biotin interaction and the electrostatic interaction between negatively charged Biot-AuNPs and the positively charged surface of APS/TiO2. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis reveals that the composite has an ordered surface geometry in which Biot-AuNPs are spread over the composite surface in two dimensions. The photocatalytic activity toward decomposition of methyl orange dye promoted by this composite is 55%, which is higher than that of the other composites. The Biot-AuNP/STV@APS/TiO2 composite efficiently reduces O-2 molecules at E-onset = -0.23 V vs Ag vertical bar AgCl, which is more positive than that of other composites (E-onset = -0.40 to -0.32 V). The result suggests that an increased number of AuNPs immobilized in close contact with the TiO2 surface facilitates photoinduced charge transfer. This strategy, which takes advantage of the specific interactions provided by biomolecules and the chemical modification on the surface, has remarkable potential for efficient fabrication of metal nanoparticles on the surface of the semiconductor, which accelerates the reduction of oxygen molecules.

    Copper(I) and copper(II) complexes were covalently linked to an engineered variant of the transmembrane protein Ferric hydroxamate uptake protein component A (FhuA Delta CVFtev). Copper(I) was incorporated using an N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligand equipped with a maleimide group on the side arm at the imidazole nitrogen. Copper(II) was attached by coordination to a terpyridyl ligand. The spacer length was varied in the back of the ligand framework. These biohybrid catalysts were shown to be active in the Diels-Alder reaction of a chalcone derivative with cyclopentadiene to preferentially give the endo product.

    A hybrid biocatalyst containing a metal terpyridine (tpy) complex within a rigid beta-barrel protein nitrobindin (NB) is constructed. A tpy ligand with a maleimide group, N-[2-([2,2':6',2 ''-terpyridin]-4'-yloxy)ethyl]maleimide (1), was covalently linked to Cys96 inside the cavity of NB to prepare a conjugate NB-1. Binding of Cu2+, Zn2+, or Co2+ ion to the tpy ligand in NB-1 was confirmed by UV-vis spectroscopy and ESI-TOF MS measurements. Cu2+-bound NB-1 is found to catalyze a Diels-Alder reaction between azachalcone and cyclopentadiene in 22% yield, which is higher than that of the Cu2+-tpy complex without the NB matrix. The results suggest that the hydrophobic cavity close to the copper active site within the NB scaffold supports the binding of the two substrates, dienophile and diene, to promote the reaction.

    A supramolecular conjugate of myoglobin (Mb) and water-soluble poly(acrylate), (PA(5k) and PA(25k), where 5k and 25k represent the molecular weight of the polymers, respectively), is constructed on the basis of a noncovalent heme-heme pocket interaction. The modified heme with an amino group linked to the terminus of one of the heme-propionates is coupled to the side-chain carboxyl groups of poly(acrylate) activated by N-hydroxysuccinimide. The ratios of the heme-modified monomer unit and the unmodified monomer unit (m:n) in the polymer chains of Heme-PA(5k) and Heme-PA(25k) were determined to be 4.5:95.5 and 3.1:96.9, respectively. Subsequent addition of apoMb to the conjugated polymers provides Mb-connected fibrous nanostructures confirmed by atomic force microscopy. A mixture of the heme-modified polymer and dimeric apomyoglobin as a cross-linker forms a microgel in which the reconstituted myoglobin retains its native exogenous ligand binding activity.

    Redox-active cytochrome b(562) with a tethered azide group on the heme propionate side chain is covalently linked to an acetylene moiety introduced on the sidewall of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) by copper-catalyzed click chemistry forming a triazole ring with the heme active site directly linked to the SWNT. The cytochrome b(562)-SWNT hybrid is characterized by electrochemistry and atomic force microscopy.

    A series of Grubbs-Hoveyda type catalyst precursors for olefin metathesis containing a maleimide moiety in the backbone of the NHC ligand was covalently incorporated in the cavity of the beta-barrel protein nitrobindin. By using two protein mutants with different cavity sizes and choosing the suitable spacer length, an artificial metalloenzyme for olefin metathesis reactions in water in the absence of any organic cosolvents was obtained. High efficiencies reaching TON > 9000 in the ROMP of a water-soluble 7-oxanorbornene derivative and TON > 100 in ring-closing metathesis (RCM) of 4,4-bis(hydroxymethyl)-1,6-heptadiene in water under relatively mild conditions (pH 6, T = 25-40 degrees C) were observed.

    meso-Monobenzoporphycene (mMBPc) and meso-dibenzoporphycene (mDBPc), in which one or two benzene moieties are fused at ethylene-bridged positions (meso-positions) of porphycene, were prepared in an effort to further delocalize the -electrons within the porphycene molecule. mMBPc and mDBPc were fully characterized by mass spectrometry, H-1 and (CNMR)-C-13 spectroscopy, and X-ray crystallography. The longest-wavelength Q-bands of mMBPc and mDBPc are red-shifted by 92nm and 418nm, respectively, compared to that of the unsubstituted porphycene (Pc). Electrochemical measurements indicate that the HOMO is destabilized and the LUMO is stabilized by the fused benzene moieties at the mesopositions. Furthermore, both XPS and theoretical studies support the presence of a cis tautomeric form in the ground state of mDBPc, despite the fact that essentially all known porphycene derivatives adopt the trans tautomeric form.

    Hydrogenase catalyses reversible transformation of H-2 to H+ using an active site which includes an iron or nickel atom. Synthetic model complexes and molecular catalysts inspired by nature have unveiled the structural and functional basis of the active site with remarkable accuracy and this has led to the discovery of active synthetic catalysts. To further improve the activity of such molecular catalysts, both the first and outer coordination spheres should be well-organized and harmonized for an efficient shuttling of H+, electrons, and H-2. This article reviews recent advances in the design and catalytic properties of artificial enzymes that mimic the hydrogenase active site and the outer coordination sphere in combination with a peptide or protein scaffold.

    A non-precious metal catalyst (NPMC) promoting a four-electron oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) was synthesized by heat treatment of myoglobin (Mb) containing a heme (iron protoporphyrin IX) as a source of iron, nitrogen, and carbon atoms. Samples of the mixture of Mb and carbon black (Vulcan XC72R: VC) were pyrolyzed at 740, 840, 940, 1040 or 1140 degrees C under N-2 flow. The microstructures of the carbonized Mb catalysts were characterized by XRD, Raman spectroscopy, XPS, and TEM. Results indicate that the iron-containing active site is embedded within the surface structure in an amorphous domain of the carbon materials. The catalyst ink in a 0.05 wt% Nafion solution in isopropanol was coated onto a glassy carbon electrode and the ORR activity of Mb-based NPMCs was evaluated in a rotating disk electrode experiment in an O-2-saturated 0.1 M HClO4 solution at 25 degrees C. The catalyst synthesized at 940 degrees C has the highest ORR activity in terms of the onset potential and the current density. In contrast, pyrolytic temperatures above 940 degrees C decrease the activity, suggesting that the active structure of the catalyst apparently decomposes at higher temperatures. The Koutecky-Levich plots indicate that the Mb-based catalyst prepared at 940 degrees C catalyzes four-electron ORR (n = ca. 4). The catalysts prepared at other temperatures have n values of 3.6 at 740 degrees C, 3.7 at 840 degrees C, and 2.9 at 1040 degrees C. The ORR of Mb/VC is diffusion-controlled at potentials lower than 0.3 V (vs. RHE) and the onset potential is 0.84 +/- 0.01 V.

    Heme can be removed from a number of native hemoproteins, thus forming corresponding apoproteins, each of which provides a site for binding of a metal complex. In one example, myoglobin, an O-2 storage protein, can be reconstituted with iron porphycene to dramatically enhance the O-2 affinity. Although it is known that myoglobin has poor enzymatic activity, the insertion of iron corrole or iron porphycene into apomyoglobin increases its H2O2-dependent peroxidase/peroxygenase activities. Furthermore, reconstitution with manganese porphycene promotes hydroxylation of an inert C-H bond. It is also of interest to insert a non-porphyrinoid complex into an apoprotein. A cavity of apocytochrome c has been found to bind a diiron carbonyl complex, serving as a functional model of diiron hydrogenase. Aponitrobindin has a rigid beta-barrel structure that provides an excellent cavity for covalently anchoring a metal complex. A rhodium complex embedded in the cavity of genetically modified nitrobindin has been found to promote stereoselective polymerization of phenylacetylene.

    CYP154C5 from Nocardia farcinica is a bacterial cytochrome P450 monooxygenase active on steroid molecules. The enzyme has recently been shown to exhibit exclusive regioselectivity and stereoselectivity in the conversion of various pregnans and androstans, yielding 16 alpha-hydroxylated steroid products. This makes the enzyme an attractive candidate for industrial application in steroid hormone synthesis. Here, crystal structures of CYP154C5 in complex with four different steroid molecules were solved at resolutions of up to 1.9 angstrom. These are the first reported P450 structures from the CYP154 family in complex with a substrate. The active site of CYP154C5 forms a flattened hydrophobic channel with two opposing polar regions, perfectly resembling the size and polarity distribution of the steroids and thus resulting in highly specific steroid binding with K-d values in the range 10-100 nM. Key enzyme-substrate interactions were identified that accounted for the exclusive regioselectivity and stereoselectivity of the enzyme. Additionally, comparison of the four CYP154C5-steroid structures revealed distinct structural differences, explaining the observed variations in kinetic data obtained for this P450 with the steroids pregnenolone, dehydroepiandrosterone, progesterone, androstenedione, testosterone and nandrolone. This will facilitate the generation of variants with improved activity or altered selectivity in the future by means of protein engineering.

    The hydrogen-evolving diiron complex, (mu-S)(2)Fe-2(CO)(6) with a tethered maleirnide moiety was synthesized and covalently embedded within the cavity of a rigid beta-barrel protein matrix by coupling a maleimide moiety to a cysteine residue within the beta-barrel. The (mu-S)(2)Fe-2(CO)(6) core within the cavity was characterized by UV-vis absorption and a characteristic CO vibration determined by IR measurements. The diiron complex embedded within the cavity retains the necessary catalytic activity (TON up to 130 for 6 h) to evolve H-2 via a photocatalytic cycle with a Ru photosensitizer in a solution of 100 mM ascorbate and 50 mM Tris/HCl at pH 4.0 and 25 degrees C.

    A myoglobin cadmium telluride quantum dot (QD) conjugate was constructed via supramolecular host-guest interactions between a cyclodextrin molecule attached on QD and an adamantyl group covalently linked to the heme. Irradiation of the supramolecular myoglobin-cadmium telluride conjugate generated a photoreduced ferrous myoglobin species via an electron transfer from the photoexcited quantum dot, leading to the formation of CO-bound myoglobin under a CO atmosphere.

    The incorporation of a Rh complex with a maleimide moiety into the cavity of the nitrobindin -barrel scaffold by a covalent linkage at the 96-position (Cys) provides a hybrid biocatalyst that promotes the polymerization of phenylacetylene. The appropriate structural optimization of the cavity by mutagenesis enhances the stereoselectivity of the polymer with a trans content of 82% at 25 degrees C and pH8.0. The X-ray crystal structure of one of the hybrid biocatalysts at a resolution of 2.0 angstrom reveals that the Rh complex is located in the -barrel cavity without any perturbation to the total protein structure. Crystal structure analysis and molecular modeling support the fact that the stereoselectivity is enhanced by the effective control of monomer access to the Rh complex within the limited space of the protein cavity.

    Protein nanowires exhibiting specific biological activities hold promise for interacting with living cells and controlling and predicting biological responses such as apoptosis, endocytosis and cell adhesion. Here we report the result of the interaction of a single high-energy charged particle with protein molecules, giving size-controlled protein nanowires with an ultra-high aspect ratio of over 1,000. Degradation of the human serum albumin nanowires was examined using trypsin. The biotinylated human serum albumin nanowires bound avidin, demonstrating the high affinity of the nanowires. Human serum albumin-avidin hybrid nanowires were also fabricated from a solid state mixture and exhibited good mechanical strength in phosphate-buffered saline. The biotinylated human serum albumin nanowires can be transformed into nanowires exhibiting a biological function such as avidin-biotinyl interactions and peroxidase activity. The present technique is a versatile platform for functionalizing the surface of any protein molecule with an extremely large surface area.

    Efforts to develop an attractive biocatalyst with new chemical reactivity and selectivity indicate that promising strategies involve the construction of artificial metalloenzymes generated by incorporation of a metal-containing moiety into a protein scaffold. In this article, we present three recent results focusing on the modification of proteins with artificial metal complexes. First, an artificial hydrogenase model containing a synthetic diiron carbonyl cluster, (mu-S-2)[Fe-1(CO)(3)](2), held by a native cysteine-containing motif in the cytochrome c protein is described. The diiron carbonyl core anchored by coordination within the protein matrix works well as a catalyst for H-2 evolution. Second, a hybrid catalyst containing a rhodium complex with a maleimide moiety at the peripheral position of the cyclopendiene ligand is described. The rhodium complex was inserted into a beta-barrel protein scaffold of a mutant of aponitrobindin via a covalent linkage. The hybrid protein acts as a polymerization catalyst and preferentially yields trans-poly(phenylacetylene) (PPA). Finally, an artificial hemoprotein containing an iron porphycene, a structural isomer of hemin, within a heme pocket, is reported. The reconstituted horseradish peroxidase catalyzes the H2O2-dependent oxidation of thioanisole, of which the initial rate is 12-fold faster than that observed for native myoglobin.

    Linear assemblies of cytochrome b (562) (cyt b (562)) containing a chemically-modified heme molecule on the protein surface were constructed by successive intermolecular heme-heme pocket interactions and then immobilized onto a gold electrode via a heme molecule anchored on the electrode. The accumulation of the cyt b (562) units were confirmed by electrochemical analyses. The average number of proteins in each assembly was estimated to be about 6 units by quartz crystal microbalance and atomic force microscopy (AFM) analyses. The linear assemblies of the cyt b (562) units were clearly visualized by AFM as a rod-like architecture with a vertical orientation to the electrode surface.

    It is of particular interest to mimic the process of intramolecular electron relay at the active site of [FeFe]-hydrogenase in order to understand the mechanism of the catalytic activity of H-2 evolution. We have recently focused on using the native CXXCH peptide sequence of the C-terminal segment of cytochrome c(556) as a platform which holds a diiron carbonyl cluster via two cysteines and have attached a ruthenium photosensitizer via a histidine. The modified peptide with the two metal moieties is found to act as the photocatalyst for H-2 evolution with a turnover number of similar to 9 over 2 h at pH 8.5 in the presence of ascorbate as a sacrificial reagent.

    A native protein in a biological system spontaneously produces large and elegant assemblies via self-assembly or assembly with various biomolecules which provide non-covalent interactions. In this context, the protein plays a key role in construction of a unique supramolecular structure operating as a functional system. Our group has recently highlighted the structure and function of hemoproteins reconstituted with artificially created heme analogs. The heme molecule is a replaceable cofactor of several hemoproteins. Here, we focus on the successive supramolecular protein assemblies driven by heme-heme pocket interactions to afford various examples of protein fibers, networks and three-dimensional clusters in which an artificial heme moiety is introduced onto the surface of a hemoprotein via covalent linkage and the native heme cofactor is removed from the heme pocket. This strategy is found to be useful for constructing hybrid materials with an electrode or with nanoparticles. The new systems described herein are expected to lead to the generation of various biomaterials with functions and characteristic physicochemical properties similar to those of hemoproteins.

    A myoglobin-cadmium telluride quantum dot conjugate was constructed using an artificial heme modified with a thiol moiety as a linker. Irradiation of the myoglobin-cadmium telluride conjugate generated the photoreduced ferrous myoglobin via an electron transfer from the photoexcited quantum dot, leading to the formation of CO-bound myoglobin under a CO atmosphere.

    Our group recently prepared a hybrid catalyst containing a rhodium complex, Rh(Cp)(cod), with a maleimide moiety at the peripheral position of the Cp ligand. This compound was then inserted into a beta-barrel protein scaffold of a mutant of aponitrobindin (Q96C) via a covalent linkage. The hybrid protein is found to act as a polymerization catalyst and preferentially yields trans-poly(phenylacetylene) (PPA), although the rhodium complex without the protein scaffold normally produces cis PPA.

    Metallothioneins (MTs) are small cysteine-rich proteins which exhibit high affinities for various metal ions and play roles in storage of essential metals and detoxification of toxic metals. Studies on the redox properties of MTs have been quite limited. Recently, we focused on the a-domain of MT (MT alpha) as a protein matrix and incorporated a tetranuclear metal cluster as a reductant. UV-visible. CD and MS data indicate the formation of the stable tetranuclear metal-cysteine cluster in the MTa matrix with Fe-4(II)-MT alpha and Co-4(II)-MT alpha species existing in water. Furthermore, the Fe-4(II)-MT alpha species was found to promote the reduction of met-myoglobin and azobenzene derivatives under mild conditions. Particularly, the stoichiometric reduction of methyl red with Fe-4(II)-MT alpha (1:1) was found to proceed with a conversion of 98% over a period of 6 h at 25 degrees C. This indicates that all of the four Fe(II) cores contribute to the reduction. In this paper, we describe the preparation and reactivity of the tetranuclear iron cluster in the protein matrix.

    Artificial self-assembling systems comprised of proteins have the potential not only for mimicking naturally occurring protein clusters but also for creating functionalized supramolecular polymers. Here we report a new type of a supramolecular protein polymer which utilizes the original character and reactivity of the monomer protein. Myoglobin, an oxygen storage hemoprotein, was chosen as the monomer unit and was provided with an externally-attached heme on the protein surface which drives the formation of the fibrous supramolecular assembly through successive interprotein interactions between the external heme and the protein matrix. This assembly governed by myoglobin characteristics shows chemically-responsive stability and can be converted into extremely large protein clusters via cross-linking. Interestingly, the assembly retains the oxygen storage function. Our present system can be used for construction of smart nanobiomaterials using various hemoproteins.

    The diiron carbonyl cluster is held by a native CXXC motif, which includes Cys14 and Cys17, in the cytochrome c sequence. It is found that the diiron carbonyl complex works well as a catalyst for H(2) evolution. It has a TON of similar to 80 over 2 h at pH 4.7 in the presence of a Ru-photosensitizer and ascorbate as a sacrificial reagent in aqueous media.

    Interaction of apohemoprotein with a covalently immobilized heme moiety onto a gold nanoparticle surface resulted in supramolecular hemoprotein-gold nanoparticle conjugates. The addition of an apohemoprotein dimer further led to a densely-packed hemoprotein-gold nanoparticle assembly, which was visualized by TEM and AFM measurements.

    Two different types of artificial glycosylated haemins (glycohaemins), in which a monosaccharide (galactose) or a disaccharide (lactobionic acid, 4-O-beta-galactopyranosyl-D-gluconic acid) was introduced at the terminals of the two haempropionate side chains, were synthesised to serve as a designed interface on the myoglobin surface. These glycohaemins were successfully inserted into apomyoglobin to yield an artificial glycoprotein by the conventional method. The interprotein interaction between the reconstituted myoglobin and peanut agglutinin lectin (PNA), a beta-galactose-recognising protein, was confirmed by two different assay systems, i.e. a fluorometric assay using the fluorescein isothiocyanate-labelled lectin and an ELISA-like assay using the peroxidase-labelled lectin. The results revealed that each myoglobin reconstituted with the glycohaemin makes a complex with PNA, in which the glycoprotein with the disaccharides showed a higher binding affinity with the lectin compared to the glycoprotein with the monosaccharides, suggesting that the binding property clearly depends on the deposited carbohydrate surface on the myoglobin.

    It is well known that the functions of metalloproteins generally originate from their metal-binding motifs. However, the intrinsic nature of individual motifs remains unknown, particularly the details about metal-binding effects on the folding of motifs; the converse is also unknown, although there is no doubt that the motif is the core of the reactivity for each metalloprotein. In this study, we focused our attention on the zinc-binding motif of the metzincin clan family, HEXXHXXGXXH; this family contains the general zinc-binding sequence His-Glu-Xaa-Xaa-His (HEXXH) and the extended GXXH region. We adopted the motif sequence of stromelysin-1 and investigated the folding properties of the Trp-labeled peptides WAHEIAHSLGLFHA (STR-W1), AWHEIAHSLGLFHA (STR-W2), AHEIAHSLGWFHA (STR-W11), and AHEIAHSLGLFHWA (STR-W14) in the presence and absence of zinc ions in hydrophobic micellar environments by circular dichroism (CD) measurements. We accessed successful incorporation of these zinc peptides into micelles using quenching of Trp fluorescence. Results of CD studies indicated that two of the Trp-incorporated peptides, STR-W1 and STR-W14, exhibited helical folding in the hydrophobic region of cetyltrimethylammonium chloride micelle. The NMR structural analysis of the apo STR-W14 revealed that the conformation in the C-terminus GXXH region significantly differred between the apo state in the micelle and the reported Zn-bound state of stromelysin-1 in crystal structures. The structural analyses of the qualitative Zn-binding properties of this motif peptide provide an interesting Zn-binding mechanism: the minimum consensus motif in the metzincin clan, a basic zinc-binding motif with an extended GXXH region, has the potential to serve as a preorganized Zn binding scaffold in a hydrophobic environment.

    Neutral zinc porphyrin containing flexible alkyl linker, 5-[4-(5-hydroxypentyloxy)phenyl]-10,15,20-tri-p-tolyl-porphyrinatozinc, was attached to the 5' ends of 20- and 30-bp oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) by solid-phase synthesis. Zinc porphyrin-modified double-stranded DNA (dsDNAs), which included dsDNAs with porphyrin moieties on one end and on both ends (ZnPor-ds20, ds20-ZnPor, ZnPor-ds20-ZnPor, ZnPor-ds30, ds30-ZnPor, and ZnPor-ds30-ZnPor), were successfully prepared and were analyzed by variable-temperature UV-vis spectroscopy and CD measurements to elucidate the interaction behavior of the porphyrin ring. Detailed investigation revealed that the zinc porphyrin-DNA conjugates exhibited intra-duplex porphyrin-ODN interaction in a low-salt condition and inter-duplex porphyrin-porphyrin interaction in a high-salt condition.

    The application of low-flux sunlight begins with the synthesis of effective antenna systems. This requires the development of dye integrates with optimized dye orientation for effective energy transfer. We here report a series of peptide-linked porphyrin arrays, denoted by Boc-(Por(Zn,S))-OBut (n = 2, 4, and 8), that change their dye orientation to increase fluorescence responsively to additive reagents. The B-band absorption (AB) regions of the arrays show blue shifts (dimer, 407.6 nm; tetramer, 408.2 nm; octamer, 407.8 nm) in organic solvents as compared to that of Boc-Por(Zn,S)-OBut (monomer, 422.6 nm) and the fluorescence yield Phi' of the arrays decreases with increasing n, obeying the relationship Phi' = 0.03/n(1.5); however, the arrays are tuned up in fluorescence emission by the addition of 1,2-diaminoethane (en). The addition of a sufficient amount of en increases the fluorescence of the porphyrins in monomer, dimer, tetramer, and octamer by similar to 5, similar to 12, similar to 12, and >730 times, respectively, when compared with that observed in the absence of en. This also causes asymptotic red shifts in absorption (AB) bands (B-band lambda(max): 410 to 429-430 nm), as well as changes in circular dichroism (CD) spectra, and makes porphyrins approach new mutual asymmetric orientations. Our results show the potentiality of the tunable dye polymers that are a posteriori optimized in dye orientation and fluorescence emission by additive reagents for the development of effective light-harvesting materials.

    The stoichiometrically controlled complexation of abiological inorganic clusters with proteins is a challenging task that enables us to combine the functions of inorganic clusters with those of biological systems on the basis of chemical characterisation. In this study, we synthesised a 1: 1 conjugate between Au(11)(PPh(3))(8)Cl(3) (Au(11)) and CGMTII alpha, where Au11 is the smallest cluster, which is situated on the boundary of molecules and nanoparticles, having discrete electronic states and exhibiting Coulomb blockade; on the other hand, CGMTII alpha is a twelve-cysteine (Cys)-containing peptide consisting of the alpha-domain of rat liver metallothionein II (MTII alpha)-a heavy metal-binding protein-and an addendum, cysteine-glycine (CG). The Cys residue of the N-terminus is used as a site for elongation by the native chemical ligation (NCL) method. Titration experiments monitored by circular dichroism spectroscopy indicate that CGMTIIa reacts with Au11 in a ratio of 1:1. The product exhibits a negative Cotton effect at 222 nm, indicating the formation of a short alpha-helix. The composition of this hybrid module is quantified as Au(11)(PPh(3))(4)(S-Cys)(6) by transmission electron microscopy (core size observation), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (elemental analysis), Ellman test (uncoordinated Cys residues), and high-performance liquid chromatography (quanti. cation of eliminated PPh(3)). These results, as well as those obtained from the simulations of Au 4f X-ray photoelectron spectra, suggest that the Au cluster of this product is Au(11)(PPh(3))(4)(S-Cys)(6). We also prepared F3F3-CGMTII alpha, where F3F3 is a zinc finger peptide with two domains, in order to demonstrate the applicability of the NCL method to the elongation of CGMTII alpha. F3F3-CGMTII alpha also reacts with Au11 to yield a 1:1 conjugate without interfering in the folding of the zinc finger.

    Amide NH prelocating in the vicinity of a carboxylic acid group shifts the pK(a) of carboxylic acid to a lower value. A carboxylate anion is stabilized by NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond under hydrophobic conditions. in the case of Ca carboxylate complex, the decrease of the pKa value increases a formation constant involving the protonation process of carboxylic acid. In addition, the NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond controls the covalent character of the Ca-O bond for a totally neutral complex that possesses a shortening Ca-O bond distance. Both factors contribute to a strong binding of polycarboxylate on the surface of CaCO3 crystals. The polycarboxylate ligands with a NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond give nanosized vaterite crystals and are located on the surface of the vaterite agglomerate. The deprotonation of some carboxylic acids leads to conformational change in Asp-X-Gly tripeptides, partially amidated Kemp's acid and monoamidated maleate. Conformational switching between stabilized and activated forms for carboxylate affords an unusual crystal growth of calcite even if one of the conformers has a strong NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond.

    In this study, we synthesized two novel carboxylic acid and carboxylate compounds, both of which had an amide group linked with an azomethine moiety to introduce photoinduced switching of the intramolecular NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond. We suggest that the cis-carboxylate compound forms a stronger intramolecular NH center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond than the cis-carboxylic acid compound.

    Zinc finger fusion proteins, having a Ca-binding site from troponin C, were created to develop Ca-responsive regulation of DNA binding. The typical zinc finger folding of a novel fusion protein with a single finger, F2-Tn, was investigated using UV-vis spectroscopy of the Co-substituted form and CD experiments. Detailed structural analyses of F2-Tn/Zn2+ using NMR experiments and structural calculations clarify that our fusion protein gives a native zinc finger folding with the artificial Ca-binding domain intervening two helices. The Ca-responsive DNA-binding affinity of troponin-fused protein with two fingers (using F1F2-Tn) was investigated by electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA). EMSA analyses of F1F2-Tn were performed under the conditions of various concentrations of the Ca ion. F1F2-Tn has a Kd value of 5.8 nM in the absence of Ca ion and shows a higher Kd value of 13 nM in the presence of 100 equiv of Ca ion. The artificially designed fusion zinc finger protein with a Ca-binding domain has Ca-responsive DNA-binding affinity. It is leading to a better understanding of the construction of zinc finger-based artificial transcriptional factors with a Ca switch.

    Aspartic acid protease model peptides Z-Phe-Asp(COOH)-Thr-Gly-Ser-Ala-NHCy (1) and AdCO-Asp(COOH)-Val-Gly-NHBzl (3), and their aspartate anions (NEt4)[Z-Phe-Asp(COO-)-Thr-Gly-Ser-Ala-NHCy] (2) and (NEt4)[AdCO-Asp(COO-)-Val-Gly-NHBzl] (4), having an invariant primary sequence of the Asp-X(Thr,Ser)-Gly fragment, were synthesized and characterized by H-1-NMR, CD, and infrared (IR) spectroscopies. NMR structure analyses indicate that the Asp 05 atoms of the aspartate peptide 2 are intramolecularly hydrogen-bonded with Gly, Ser, Ala NH, and Ser OH, supporting the rigid beta-tum-like conformation in acetonitrile solution. The tripeptide in the aspartic acid 3 forms an inverse gamma- turn structure, which is converted to a P-turn-like conformation because of the formation of the intramolecular (NHO-)-O-... hydrogen bonds with the Asp O-delta in 4. Such a conformational change is not detected between dipeptides AdCO-Asp(COOH)-Va-NHAd (5) and (NEt4)[AdCO-Asp(COO-)-Val-NHAd] (6). The pK(a) value of side-chain carboxylic acid (5.0),for 3 exhibits a lower shift (0.3 unit) from that of 5 in aqueous polyethyleneglycol lauryl ether micellar solution. NMR structure analyses for 3 in an aqueolls micellar solution indicate that the preorganized turn structure, which readily forms the (NHO-)-O-... hydrogen bonds, lowers the pK(a) value and that resulting hydrogen bonds stabilize the rigid confiormation in the aspartate anion state. We found that thefionnation of the (NHO-)-O-... hydrogen bonds involved in the hairpin turn is correlated with the protonation and deprotonation state of the Asp side chain in the conserved amino acid fragments.

    Iron(III) porphinate complexes of phenolate that have NH...O hydrogen bonds on the coordinating oxygen, [Fe-III(OEP){O-2,6-(RCONH)(2)C6H3}] (R = CF3 (1), CH3 (3)) and [Fe-III(OEP)(O-2-RCONHC6H4)] (R = CF3 (2), CH3 (4)) (OEP = 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octaethyl-21 H, 23H-porphinato), were synthesized and characterized as models of heme catalase. The presence of NH...O hydrogen bonds was established by their crystal structures and IR shifts of the amide NH band. The crystal structure of 1 shows an extremely elongated Fe-O bond, 1.926(3) Angstrom, compared to 1.887(2) Angstrom in 2 or 1.848(4) Angstrom in [Fe-III(OEP)(OPh)]. The NH...O hydrogen bond decreases an electron donation from oxygen to iron, resulting in a long Fe-O bond and a positive redox potential. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Novel benzoic acid ligands with bulky amide groups at the ortho position, 2,6-(MeCONH)(2)C6H3CO2H (1) and 2,6-(t-BuCONH)(2)C6H3CO2H (2), and their tris- and tetrakis(carboxylate) complexes with Ca(II) and Tb(III) ions, (NEt4)(2)-[Ca-II {O2C-2,6-(t-BuCONH)(2)C6H3}(4)] (4), [Tb{O2C-2,6-(t-BuNHCO)(2)C6H3}(3)(H2O)(3)}] (5), and (NMe)(4)(Tb{O2C-2,6-(t-BuNHCO)(2)C6H3}(4)(thf)] (6), were synthesized. The formation of the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bonds between the amide NH and carboxylate for 2, (NEt4){2,6-(t-BuCONH)(2)C6H3CO2} (3), and 4 was determined by H-1 NMR spectroscopy in solution and in the solid state (CRAMPS, IR). The ligand exchange reactions were attempted between 4 and a large excess of 2,4,6- Me3C6H3CO2H in chloroform-d solution; however, exchange reaction did not take place, indicating that the Ca(II) ions bound strongly to the carboxylate in 4. The Ca(II) ion binding properties with the benzoate derivatives were also examined using Tb(III) ion as a fluorescence probe. These results indicate that the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bonding between the amide NH and the oxygen atom of the carboxylate contributes to strong Ca(II) binding and prevents the dissociation of the calcium-carboxylate bond. The X-ray structural analyses of these complexes revealed that the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen-bonded carboxylate ligands prefer the chelate-type coordination and create a mononuclear {Ca(O2CR)(4)}(2-) or {Tb(O2CR)(4)}(-) core with anionic charge, which is known only in the active site of calcium-binding proteins.

The Tb ion coordination sphere is occupied by nine 0 atoms, five from benzoate groups, three from water molecules and one from an amide carbonyl group of a neighboring ligand. Five amide NH groups of the three ligands are involved in intramolecular N-H...O hydrogen bonds.

    A novel poly(vinyl phosphate) ligand was synthesized as a model of biopolymer ligands containing the OH...O hydrogen bonds and CaHPO4.2H(2)O (brushite) composites with the polymer ligands were also prepared. Successful detection of the polymer ligand binding to the CaHPO4.2H(2)O crystals is achieved by P-31 MAS NMR with 1 pda (single pulse with decoupling and phase cycling) sequence, which enhances P-31 signals of the phosphate polymer having shorter T-1 value.

    Novel poly(allylaminocarboxylate) ligands, which have a carboxylate and the neighboring arttide group in the same side-chain, were synthesized as model ligands for crystalline CaCO3 biominerals. Poly{N-allyl-malonamate}, poly{N-allyl-succinamate} and poly{4-allylcarbamoyl-butyrate} form 6-, 7- or 8-membered ring intra-side-chain NH.O hydrogen bonds, respectively, between the carboxylate and the neighboring amide NH in the carboxylate anion state, although the formation of each intra-side-chain NH.O hydrogen bond is independent on the stereoisomers of the polymer main-chain. In the polymer ligand-CaCO3 composites, strong binding of polymer ligands to CaCO3 crystals is caused by stabilizing a Ca-O (carboxylate) bond due to the pK(a) shift of carboxylic acid by the NH.O hydrogen bond. Furthermore, the strong Ca binding in CaCO3 composites stabilizes the meta-stable morphology of CaCO3 vaterite crystals. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    The formation of the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bonds of carboxylic acids, 2,6-(t-Bu-CONH)(2)C6H3COOH (1) and 2-t-BuCONH-6-MeC6H3 COOH (2), carboxylate, [NEt4][2,6-(t-BuCONH)(2)C6H3COO] (3), and a mixed complex, [N(n-Pr)(4)][H{2,6-(t-BuCONH)(2)C6H3(COO)}(2)] (4), were determined by X-ray structure analysis, H-1 NMR, and IR spectroscopy, both in the solid state and in Solution. The amide NH group forms weak intramolecular hydrogen bond between the NH and O=C group, and no (NHOH)-O-... hydrogen bond is formed in the carboxylic acid state. Carboxylate anion 3 forms a strong intramolecular, partially-covalent hydrogen bond between (NHO-)-O-... (anion). The strength of the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bonds is also maintained in a solution having a low dielectric constant. The pK(a) values for 1 and 2, measured in a micellar Solution, indicated that one of the important triggers for deprotonation is a direct interaction toward the oxygen atom of the OH group with the amide NHs.

    Poly {1-[(Z)-3-carboxyl-2-propenylaminomethyl]ethylene} binding on the edge of calcite crystals was observed directly by C-13 CP/MAS NMR and FE/SEM measurements. Comparing the results taken both before and after the washing process, we were able to make these observation because the polymer ligand weakly bound to the CaCO3 crystals.

    Biologically important Ca-proteins and Ca-biominerals as metal-polymer complexes are often regulated by the complexation and demetalation with the biopolymers. Metal-oxygen bond is supported by (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bonds between coordinating oxyanion and neighboring amide NH and by the successive hydrogen bonding networks. Carboxylate anion under hydrophobic conditions has a high basicity that leads to a covalent Ca-O bond character that is significantly affected by the (NHO)-O-... hydrogen bond. The hydrogen bonds in Asp-containing tripeptide fragments in Ca-proteins presumably control coordination/dissociation of metal-oxygen bonds. Our systematic studies of carboxylate, sulfonate and phosphate Ca(II) complexes demonstrate a relationship between the basicity of oxyanion in carboxylate and hydrogen bonds as cooperating with the oligopeptide conformation in Asp-containing Ca(II) complexes. Hydrogen bonds between carboxylate oxyanion and amide NH, controlled by a conformational switching of oligopeptide fragments, seem to be one of essential factors for the regulatory formation of Ca-proteins and nano-architectures in connection with the interface structure of inorganic and organic phases in biominerals.

    A novel poly( carboxylate) ligand was synthesized as a ligand for a crystalline CaCO3-organic composite. Poly [1-carboxylate-2-(N-t-butylcarbamoyl) ethylenealt -ethylene] has a 7-membered ring with an intramolecular NH...O hydrogen bond between the carboxylate group and the neighboring amide NH proton in the anionic carboxylate form. The configuration of the polymer ligand was estimated with polymer repeat-unit models, (S, S)- or (R, R)-2-(N-t-butylcarbamoyl) -cyclohexanecarboxylic acid ((S, S) - or (R, R) -TBCA) and (S, R) 2- (N-t-butylcarbamoyl)-cyclohexanecarboxylic acid ((S, R)-TBCA). The proton NMR spectum of the carboxylate anion of ( S, S) - or ( R, R) - TBCA exhibits a non-hydrogen bonded NH signal at 7.31 ppm in Me2SO-d(6). (S, R)-TBCA shows a strongly NH...O hydrogen-bonded NH signal at 8.50 ppm. The observation of one strongly NH...O hydrogen bonded NH signal at 11.3 ppm indicates that the polymer anion has a threo-form in the zigzag polymer main chain. Moreover, a polymer ligand-CaCO3 composite was synthesized. The composite was characterized by C-13 cross polarization/magic angle spinning (CP/MAS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The polymer ligand stabilizes the Ca-O (carboxylate) bond in the CaCO3 composite. This prevents dissociation due to pK(a) shifts of the NH...O hydrogen bond and controls the crystal growth toward metastable vaterite.

    Two new mononuclear Ca(II) complexes with aryl dihydrogen phosphate ligands having two strategically oriented bulky amide groups, 2,6-(Ph3CCONH)(2)C6H3OPO3H2 (1), including one with a phosphate monoanion, (NMe4)[Ca-II-{O2P(OH)OC6H3-2,6-(NHCOCPh3)(2)}(3)(Nequivalent toCMe)(3)] (3), and one with a phosphate dianion, [Ca-II{O3POC6H3-2,6-(NHCOCPh3)(2)}(H2O)(3)(MeOH)(2)] (4). Both are analogues for the (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds in the active site of Ca(II)-containing phosphotransferase. Crystallographic studies of these Ca(II) complexes revealed that the amide NHs are directed to uncoordinated 0 atoms of the phosphates, and the IR and H-1 NMR spectra indicate that strong (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds are formed only in the phosphate dianion state. The ligand exchange reaction of 3 with a non-hydrogen-bonded phosphate ligand shows that the (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds prevent the Ca-O bond from dissociation. A scatter plot analysis comparing the distance of a Ca-O bond with the Ca-O-P angle, the Fourier density analysis, and DFT calculations reveal that a partial degree of covalency in the Ca-O(phosphate) bonds is present.

    Novel poly (carboxy lates), partially amidated poly(acrylate), poly {[1-carboxylate-2-(N-t-butyl)carbamoyl]ethylene-alt-ethylene), poly[1-(N-oxysuccinyl-aminomethenyl)ethylene], poly [1-(N-oxymalenyl-aminomethnyl)ethylene] and poly [1-(N-oxyphthalyl-aminomethnyl)ethylene] with intramolecular NH --- 0 hydrogen bond between amide NH and coordinating oxygen were synthesized as model ligands for CaCO3 biominerallization. The FE/SEM and its backscatter of the CaCO3 composite of gold colloid-conjugated poly ([1-carboxylate-2-(N-p-methylthiophenyl)carbamoy]]ethylene-alt-ethylene} indicate that the polymer ligand is located at the surface of vaterite crystals and the oriented carboxy late ligands control the CaCO3 polymorph.

X-ray crystallography revealed that all have an unsymmetric ligand position due to the bulky amide groups. A dynamic transformation of the Ca(II) zigzag-chain structure to the cyclic-octanuclear complex was induced by changing coordination of DMF molecules, which caused a reorganization of the intermolecular/intramolecular hydrogen bond network.

S hydrogen bond and Hg[S-4-{C23H36(OH)(3)}CONHC6H4](2) (2), were synthesized to prepare an aqueous micellar solution. A hydrated Hg(II) ion was formed from the Hg(II) thiolate complexes, 1 and 2, at the ligand dissociation point (pH 4.0 and 4.9, respectively) near the pK(a) values (5.7 and 7.0, respectively) of the corresponding thiols. The hydrated Hg(II) ion was detected by the formation of Hg(0) species reduced with Na2S2O4 in an aqueous micellar solution. The NH ... S hydrogen bond lowers the pK(a) value of the conjugated thiol to protect the Hg-S bond from dissociation by water under neutral conditions.

    © 2018 American Chemical Society. Incorporation of a synthetic metal catalyst into a protein scaffold yields a biohybrid catalyst, with a remarkable performance in aqueous media and the broad reaction scope of organometallic catalysts. A major challenge for efficient catalysis is the design of the interface between the protein scaffold and the metal catalyst. Until now, protein scaffolds have primarily been engineered by exchanging individual amino acids to anchor metal catalysts and alter their immediate environment. Here, cavity size engineering of the β-barrel protein nitrobindin was performed by duplicating multiple β-strands to generate an expanded variant. The approach of cavity size engineering enabled covalent incorporation of bulky catalysts at excellent coupling efficiencies and yielded excellent conversions in olefin metathesis, including ring-closing metathesis, ring-opening metathesis polymerization, and cross metathesis (conversions up to 99% and turnover numbers up to 10000).

    © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2018. In mitochondria, cytochrome c oxidase (CcO) catalyses the reduction of oxygen (O2) to water by using a heme/copper hetero-binuclear active site. Here we report a highly efficient supramolecular approach for the construction of a water-soluble biomimetic model for the active site of CcO. A tridentate copper(ii) complex was fixed onto 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphinatoiron(iii) (FeIIITPPS) through supramolecular complexation between FeIIITPPS and a per-O-methylated β-cyclodextrin dimer linked by a (2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridyl)copper(ii) complex (CuIITerpyCD2). The reduced FeIITPPS/CuITerpyCD2 complex reacted with O2 in an aqueous solution at pH 7 and 25 °C to form a superoxo-type FeIII-O2-/CuI complex in a manner similar to CcO. The pH-dependent autoxidation of the O2 complex suggests that water molecules gathered at the distal Cu site are possibly involved in the FeIII-O2-/CuI superoxo complex in an aqueous solution. Electrochemical analysis using a rotating disk electrode demonstrated the role of the FeTPPS/CuTerpyCD2 hetero-binuclear structure in the catalytic O2 reduction reaction.

    © 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim Two polyamine derivatives of protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) were tested as photodynamic therapy (PDT) agents in HT29 colorectal cancer and HEP3B liver cancer cell lines. These compounds exhibit excellent singlet oxygen quantum yields and show strong in vitro PDT efficacy after 660 nm laser irradiation, whereas exogenous PPIX itself exhibits much weaker PDT effects. Confocal microscopy imaging studies reveal that a protoporphyrin derivative with eight amine moieties has excellent water solubility, and localizes mainly in the mitochondria of both HT29 and HEP3B cells, whereas the cellular distribution of a protoporphyrin derivative with four amine moieties is not as specific. This work demonstrates that polyamine moieties on macrocycles can enhance PDT efficacy by targeting mitochondria.

    © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2018. Nonprecious metal electrocatalysts are being explored as alternatives to platinum-group metal electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) which is required for cathode materials in fuel cells. Herein, we describe a new method for preparing bimetallic nitrogen-containing carbon catalysts with high ORR activity using π-expanded M(salen) precursors. The M/N/C and bimetallic FeM/N/C ORR catalysts were obtained by pyrolysis of a mixture of a carbon support (Vulcan XC-72R) and the metal complex as a precursor. The bimetallic FeCu catalyst prepared from Fe and Cu complexes with the N,N′-bis(2-hydroxy-1-naphthylidene)-1,2-phenylenediamine ligand (2NAPD) is found to have an onset potential of 0.87 V, which is positively shifted by 50 mV from that of the catalyst prepared from the monometallic Fe(2NAPD) complex. The FeCu/N/C catalyst promotes efficient four-electron reduction in the ORR. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy studies reveal that both Fe and Cu metals together with pyridinic nitrogen species are highly dispersed within the carbonaceous structure in FeCu/2NAPD@VC, suggesting that the N-coordinated Fe and Cu sites promote efficient four-electron reduction of O2. This new methodology facilitates design of nonprecious bimetallic carbon catalysts with excellent ORR activity.

    © 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim A diiron [FeFe]-hydrogenase model complex tethered with a maleimide group, FeFe1, was covalently grafted on the pore surface of a periodic mesoporous organosilica with thiol groups (SH-PMO) to form an efficient heterogeneous hydrogen (H2)-evolution catalyst FeFe1@PMO. The coordination structure of the FeFe1 complex and the ordered pore structure were almost completely preserved even after immobilization of FeFe1 on SH-PMO. The FeFe1@PMO promoted photocatalysis for H2evolution in water containing a photosensitizer [Ru(bpy)3]2+, with a turnover number (TON) of 310 over 120 min. The TON was greater than those of an analogous homogeneous FeFe1 catalyst (TON=180) and conventional diiron complexes immobilized on solid supports (TON=6–18). The increased TON for FeFe1@PMO compared to the homogeneous FeFe1 was attributed to the improvement in the stability of the FeFe1 complex by immobilization on the pore surface of SH-PMO. A [Ru(bpy)3]2+photosensitizer tethered with a maleimide (Ru1) was prepared and co-immobilized on FeFe1@PMO to form an all-solid-state photocatalyst FeFe1-Ru1@PMO. FeFe1-Ru1@PMO evolved H2without the additional [Ru(bpy)3]2+photosensitizer, suggesting efficient photoinduced electron transfer from the immobilized Ru1 to the immobilized FeFe1.

    Horseradish peroxidase apoprotein (apoHRP) was immobilized on a heme-modified polythiophene film, which was electro-polymerized on an indium tin oxide surface to yield immobilized and reconstituted HRP. The HRP-immobilized electrode exhibits a 6-fold enhanced electrochemical response toward hydrogen peroxide reduction relative to having the protein randomly immobilized on the polythiophene electrode. This indicates that the insertion of the heme moiety into the heme pocket of HRP leads to an increase in the electrocatalytic current.

NB variants with cavities of different sizes and shapes are coupled with N-(1-pyrenyl)maleimide (Pyr) to prepare a series of NB-Pyr conjugates. The orientation of the pyrene moiety is fixed within the cavity by the coupling reaction. The fluorescent quenching analysis of NB-Pyr indicates that azachalcone (aza), which is a dienophile for a Diels–Alder (DA) reaction, is efficiently incorporated within the pyrene-linked reaction cavity by the aromatic interaction. The DA reaction between aza and cyclopentadiene proceeds within the reaction cavity of NB-Pyr in the presence of CuIIion in high yield and high enantio- and regioselectivity.

    Cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) is a dual domain flavocytochrome, which consists of a dehydrogenase (DH) domain containing a flavin adenine dinucleotide and a cytochrome (CYT) domain containing b-type heme. To directly visualize the dynamic domain motion of class-I CDH from Phanerochaete chrysosporium (PcCDH) during catalysis using high-speed atomic force microscopy, the apo-form of PcCDH was anchored to a heme-immobilized flat gold surface that can specifically fix the orientation of the CYT domain. The two domains of CDH are found to be immobile in the absence of cellobiose, whereas the addition of cellobiose triggers an interdomain flip-flop motion involving domain-domain association and dissociation. Our results indicate that dynamic motion of a dual domain enzyme during catalysis induces efficient electron transfer to an external electron acceptor.

    Photoinduced charge separation on a hybrid titanium dioxide (TiO2) surface with a gold nanoparticle (AuNP) assembly immobilized via a biotin-streptavidin interaction was visualized by Kelvin force microscopy (KFM). Biotinylated AuNP (Biot-AuNP) with a diameter of ca. 15 nm was assembled using streptavidin (STV) and the AuNP assembly was immobilized on a TiO2 surface modified with 1-(3-aminopropyl)silatrane. KFM reveals that the local contact potential difference (CPD) of dispersed AuNP, which is -17 +/- 4.2 mV in the dark, undergoes a negative shift of -46 +/- 3.0 mV upon UV-irradiation (lambda=240-300 nm). In contrast, the AuNP assembly on the TiO2 surface exhibits a greater negative shift of -58 +/- 6.0 mV of the CPD, although the CPD value of -16 +/- 5.8 mV in the dark is similar to that of the dispersed AuNP. KFM visualization demonstrates that assembly of the AuNP on the TiO2 surface contributes to efficient storage of the negative charge generated by excited electrons in TiO2 during photoinduced charge separation.

    The bacterial chemotaxis protein of Desulfovibrio vulgaris DcrH (DcrH-Hr) functions as an O(2)-sensing protein. This protein has a hemerythrin-like domain that includes a nonheme diiron center analogous to the diiron center of the hemerythrin (Hr) family. Interestingly, the O(2) affinity of DcrH-Hr is 3.3 x 10(6) M(-1), a value 25-fold higher than that of the Pectinaria gouldii Hr. This high affinity arises from the fast association of the O(2) ligand with DcrH-Hr (k(on) = 5.3 x 10(8) M(-1) s(-1)), which is made possible by a hydrophobic tunnel that accelerates the passage of the O(2) ligand to the diiron site. Furthermore, the autoxidation kinetics indicate that the rate of autoxidation of DcrH-Hr is 54-fold higher than that of P. gouldii Hr, indicating that the oxy form of DcrH-Hr is not stable toward autoxidation. More importantly, a mixed-valent state, semimet(R), which was spectroscopically observed in previous Hr studies, was found to be stable for over 1 week and isolable in the case of DcrH-Hr. The high-resolution crystal structures of the semimet(R)- (1.8 angstrom) and met-DcrH-Hr (1.4 angstrom) indicate that the semimetR- and met-DcrH-Hr species have very similar coordination geometry at the diiron site.

    Metallothioneins (MTs) are small cysteine-rich proteins which exhibit high affinities for various metal ions and play roles in storage of essential metals and detoxification of toxic metals. Studies on the redox properties of MTs have been quite limited. Recently, we focused on the a-domain of MT (MT alpha) as a protein matrix and incorporated a tetranuclear metal cluster as a reductant. UV-visible. CD and MS data indicate the formation of the stable tetranuclear metal-cysteine cluster in the MTa matrix with Fe-4(II)-MT alpha and Co-4(II)-MT alpha species existing in water. Furthermore, the Fe-4(II)-MT alpha species was found to promote the reduction of met-myoglobin and azobenzene derivatives under mild conditions. Particularly, the stoichiometric reduction of methyl red with Fe-4(II)-MT alpha (1:1) was found to proceed with a conversion of 98% over a period of 6 h at 25 degrees C. This indicates that all of the four Fe(II) cores contribute to the reduction. In this paper, we describe the preparation and reactivity of the tetranuclear iron cluster in the protein matrix.

    The diiron carbonyl cluster is held by a native CXXC motif, which includes Cys14 and Cys17, in the cytochrome c sequence. It is found that the diiron carbonyl complex works well as a catalyst for H(2) evolution. It has a TON of similar to 80 over 2 h at pH 4.7 in the presence of a Ru-photosensitizer and ascorbate as a sacrificial reagent in aqueous media.

    Artificial self-assembling systems comprised of proteins have the potential not only for mimicking naturally occurring protein clusters but also for creating functionalized supramolecular polymers. Here we report a new type of a supramolecular protein polymer which utilizes the original character and reactivity of the monomer protein. Myoglobin, an oxygen storage hemoprotein, was chosen as the monomer unit and was provided with an externally-attached heme on the protein surface which drives the formation of the fibrous supramolecular assembly through successive interprotein interactions between the external heme and the protein matrix. This assembly governed by myoglobin characteristics shows chemically-responsive stability and can be converted into extremely large protein clusters via cross-linking. Interestingly, the assembly retains the oxygen storage function. Our present system can be used for construction of smart nanobiomaterials using various hemoproteins.

    Interaction of apohemoprotein with a covalently immobilized heme moiety onto a gold nanoparticle surface resulted in supramolecular hemoprotein-gold nanoparticle conjugates. The addition of an apohemoprotein dimer further led to a densely-packed hemoprotein-gold nanoparticle assembly, which was visualized by TEM and AFM measurements.

    Two different types of artificial glycosylated haemins (glycohaemins), in which a monosaccharide (galactose) or a disaccharide (lactobionic acid, 4-O-beta-galactopyranosyl-D-gluconic acid) was introduced at the terminals of the two haempropionate side chains, were synthesised to serve as a designed interface on the myoglobin surface. These glycohaemins were successfully inserted into apomyoglobin to yield an artificial glycoprotein by the conventional method. The interprotein interaction between the reconstituted myoglobin and peanut agglutinin lectin (PNA), a beta-galactose-recognising protein, was confirmed by two different assay systems, i.e. a fluorometric assay using the fluorescein isothiocyanate-labelled lectin and an ELISA-like assay using the peroxidase-labelled lectin. The results revealed that each myoglobin reconstituted with the glycohaemin makes a complex with PNA, in which the glycoprotein with the disaccharides showed a higher binding affinity with the lectin compared to the glycoprotein with the monosaccharides, suggesting that the binding property clearly depends on the deposited carbohydrate surface on the myoglobin.

    It is well known that the functions of metalloproteins generally originate from their metal-binding motifs. However, the intrinsic nature of individual motifs remains unknown, particularly the details about metal-binding effects on the folding of motifs; the converse is also unknown, although there is no doubt that the motif is the core of the reactivity for each metalloprotein. In this study, we focused our attention on the zinc-binding motif of the metzincin clan family, HEXXHXXGXXH; this family contains the general zinc-binding sequence His-Glu-Xaa-Xaa-His (HEXXH) and the extended GXXH region. We adopted the motif sequence of stromelysin-1 and investigated the folding properties of the Trp-labeled peptides WAHEIAHSLGLFHA (STR-W1), AWHEIAHSLGLFHA (STR-W2), AHEIAHSLGWFHA (STR-W11), and AHEIAHSLGLFHWA (STR-W14) in the presence and absence of zinc ions in hydrophobic micellar environments by circular dichroism (CD) measurements. We accessed successful incorporation of these zinc peptides into micelles using quenching of Trp fluorescence. Results of CD studies indicated that two of the Trp-incorporated peptides, STR-W1 and STR-W14, exhibited helical folding in the hydrophobic region of cetyltrimethylammonium chloride micelle. The NMR structural analysis of the apo STR-W14 revealed that the conformation in the C-terminus GXXH region significantly differred between the apo state in the micelle and the reported Zn-bound state of stromelysin-1 in crystal structures. The structural analyses of the qualitative Zn-binding properties of this motif peptide provide an interesting Zn-binding mechanism: the minimum consensus motif in the metzincin clan, a basic zinc-binding motif with an extended GXXH region, has the potential to serve as a preorganized Zn binding scaffold in a hydrophobic environment.

    The complementary recognition of base pairs (bp) is the major strategy in the "DNA lithography" of gold (Au) clusters or nanoparticles, where single-stranded DNAs sulfurized at their termini are generally used to bind Au Clusters or nanoparticles. In this report, we discuss a new material that can be used to locate Au clusters on the desired positions of DNA. For this purpose, we combined a two-domain zinc finger (ZF) and the analogue of alpha domain of rat's liver metallothionein (MT) to utilize the DNA-recognizing ability of ZF motifs and the heavy-metal binding ability of MTs, and prepared an artificial fusion protein, ZFZF-MT alpha (1). Titration experiments monitored by absorption and circular dichroism spectroscopies, as well as an electrophoretic mobility shift assay and quantification using 5,5'-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoic acid), clarified that (1) the ZF domain traps two divalent metal ions to fold in a ZF structure with M(Cys)(2)(HiS)(2) (M = Co, Zn, and Cd) coordination units, (2) the MT domain traps metal ions to form clusters (Cd(2+) particularly forms a Cd(4)(Cys)(9) cluster) without interfering with the folding of the ZF domain, and (3) 1 recognizes the 5'-GGGGGG-3' (GO bp sequence in the presence of Zn(2+) based on the amino acid sequence encoded in the ZF domain. The titration of Au(11)(PPh(3))(9)Cl(3) (Au11) into the solution of 1 in the presence of Zn(2+) revealed that the MT domain strongly binds the Au11 cluster with a 1:1 ratio, and a Au(11)-containing conjugate, ZF(Zn)ZF(Zn)-MT alpha(Au(11)) was obtained. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy showed that this conjugate maintains an Au(11) core in the form of Au(11)(PPh(3))(4)(S-Cys)(6) without disturbing the folding nature of the ZF domain. ZF(Zn)ZF(Zn)-MT alpha(Au(11)) recognizes the bp sequence G(6) with K(d1) = 450 nM, while simultaneously forming a dimer on the DNA with K(d2) = 200 nM. TEM experiments showed that the conjugates form parallelograms or triangles (defective parallelograms) on a double crossover (dx) DNA, according to the positions of G(6) encoded in the dx DNA.

    The application of low-flux sunlight begins with the synthesis of effective antenna systems. This requires the development of dye integrates with optimized dye orientation for effective energy transfer. We here report a series of peptide-linked porphyrin arrays, denoted by Boc-(Por(Zn,S))-OBut (n = 2, 4, and 8), that change their dye orientation to increase fluorescence responsively to additive reagents. The B-band absorption (AB) regions of the arrays show blue shifts (dimer, 407.6 nm; tetramer, 408.2 nm; octamer, 407.8 nm) in organic solvents as compared to that of Boc-Por(Zn,S)-OBut (monomer, 422.6 nm) and the fluorescence yield Phi' of the arrays decreases with increasing n, obeying the relationship Phi' = 0.03/n(1.5); however, the arrays are tuned up in fluorescence emission by the addition of 1,2-diaminoethane (en). The addition of a sufficient amount of en increases the fluorescence of the porphyrins in monomer, dimer, tetramer, and octamer by similar to 5, similar to 12, similar to 12, and >730 times, respectively, when compared with that observed in the absence of en. This also causes asymptotic red shifts in absorption (AB) bands (B-band lambda(max): 410 to 429-430 nm), as well as changes in circular dichroism (CD) spectra, and makes porphyrins approach new mutual asymmetric orientations. Our results show the potentiality of the tunable dye polymers that are a posteriori optimized in dye orientation and fluorescence emission by additive reagents for the development of effective light-harvesting materials.

    Two new mononuclear Ca(II) complexes with aryl dihydrogen phosphate ligands having two strategically oriented bulky amide groups, 2,6-(Ph3CCONH)(2)C6H3OPO3H2 (1), including one with a phosphate monoanion, (NMe4)[Ca-II-{O2P(OH)OC6H3-2,6-(NHCOCPh3)(2)}(3)(Nequivalent toCMe)(3)] (3), and one with a phosphate dianion, [Ca-II{O3POC6H3-2,6-(NHCOCPh3)(2)}(H2O)(3)(MeOH)(2)] (4). Both are analogues for the (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds in the active site of Ca(II)-containing phosphotransferase. Crystallographic studies of these Ca(II) complexes revealed that the amide NHs are directed to uncoordinated 0 atoms of the phosphates, and the IR and H-1 NMR spectra indicate that strong (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds are formed only in the phosphate dianion state. The ligand exchange reaction of 3 with a non-hydrogen-bonded phosphate ligand shows that the (NHO)-O-. . . hydrogen bonds prevent the Ca-O bond from dissociation. A scatter plot analysis comparing the distance of a Ca-O bond with the Ca-O-P angle, the Fourier density analysis, and DFT calculations reveal that a partial degree of covalency in the Ca-O(phosphate) bonds is present.

X-ray crystallography revealed that all have an unsymmetric ligand position due to the bulky amide groups. A dynamic transformation of the Ca(II) zigzag-chain structure to the cyclic-octanuclear complex was induced by changing coordination of DMF molecules, which caused a reorganization of the intermolecular/intramolecular hydrogen bond network.

    Alternately amidated poly(1-carboxylate-3-N-alkylamidotetramethylene)s (alkyl = t-Bu, n-Bu) were synthesized from poly(acrylic anhydride) and alkylamines as ligands for Ca(II) complexes. The anion form of the alternately amidated polycarboxylates possesses an NH···O hydrogen bond between the carboxylate oxygen and the adjacent amide NH. The reinforcement of Ca-O bond strength by the NH···O hydrogen bond, upon the mineralization of calcium carbonate, is maintained at the interface between crystalline CaCO3 and the polymer ligands because it prevents the removal of the alternately amidated poly(1-carboxylate-3-N-alkylamidotetramethylene) ligand from the crystalline CaCO3 under neutral conditions. Under the same conditions, a commercial poly(acrylate) ligand readily releases Ca(II) ion to separate from the surface of the crystal by hydrolysis with water. The binding carboxylate ligand 13C on calcium carbonate is detectable using solid-state 13C CP/MAS spectroscopy.

    The novel intramolecularly NH···O hydrogen-bonded Ca(II)-aryl sulfonate complex, [Ca2 (SO3-2-t-BuCONHC6H4)2 (H2O)4]n (2-t-BuCONHC6H4SO3)2n (1), sulfonate anion, (HNEt3)(SO33-2-t-BuCONHC6H4) (2a), (PPh4)(SO3-2-t-BuCONHC6H4) (2b), (n-Bu4N)(SO3-2-t-BuCONHC6H4) (2c), and sulfonic acid, 2-t-BuCONHC6H4SO3H (3), were synthesized. The structures of l, 2a, and 2b depict the presence of the formation of NH···O hydrogen bonds between the amide NH and S-O oxygen for a series of compounds as determined by IR and 1H NMR analyses both in the solid state and in the solution state. Thus, the NH···O hydrogen bonds with neutral amide groups are available for investigation of the electronic state of the O- anion. The combined data from the IR and 1H NMR spectra indicate that the sulfonic acid, sulfonate anion, and Ca(II) complex have a substantially weak intramolecular NH···O hydrogen bond between the SO3 oxygen and amide NH. In the detailed comparison with the intense NH···O hydrogen bonds for the carboxylate, weak NH···O hydrogen bonds for sulfonate is due to the strong conjugation of the SO3- group with the lower nucleophilicity.

    A novel dinuclear calcium complex, [Ca2{(2-OCO-3-CH3C6H3NHCO) 2C(CH3)2}2(CH3OH) 6] (1), was synthesized as a structural model of 8-coordinated Ca(II) ions in the double calcium-binding site of thermolysin. The complex has four NH⋯O hydrogen bonds between the amide NH and the carboxylate oxygen anion. Two types of bridging coordination of the carboxylate ligand to Ca(II) were found in 1. The amide NH forms a strong NH⋯O hydrogen bond with the anionic oxygen of the two carboxylate oxygens. A ligand-exchange reaction between the dinuclear calcium complex and eight equimolar amounts of 2,4,6-trimethylbenzoic acid or 2-CH3-6-t-BuCONHC6H3COOH indicates that the NH⋯O hydrogen bond prevents the dissociation of the Ca-O bond. © 1999 American Chemical Society.

    社会から要請される複雑な物質群を高効率かつ選択的に変換する触媒系を開拓することは、最重要課題の一つである。金属錯体触媒に、生物がもつ多様な分子環境を融合すれば、未踏の選択性を達成すると期待される。本研究は、多彩な反応性をもつ金属錯体触媒と、精緻かつ多様な反応場を提供するバレル型タンパク質を融合したバイオハイブリッド触媒を構築し、従来にはない位置選択性・官能基選択性・基質選択性を付与した触媒系を開拓することが目的である。さらに、バイオハイブリッド触媒部位を細胞表面提示した人工微生物触媒を作製し、金属錯体の反応場と網羅的かつ高速に探索可能な実験室進化の手法と組み合わせ、タンパク質反応場を最適化し、困難な反応選択性を示す触媒を開拓する。本年度は、反応性の高いシクロペンタジエニルロジウム錯体を固定化したバイオハイブリッド触媒を活用し、非対称内部アルキンを基質とする位置選択的なイソキノリン合成を実施した。また、ロジウム近傍にカルボキシル基を変異導入により配置することによって、触媒活性が向上することも見出しており、タンパク質反応場のチューニングの有効性も実証した。このような探索を迅速化するために、バイオハイブリッド部分を表面提示したホールセル触媒系の構築に取り組んだ。細胞表面との連結を円滑にするために、ロジウム錯体の配位子の最適化を検討して、種々のチオール系配位子を試した結果、ジチオリン酸配位子で空配位座を保護したロジウム錯体では、タンパク質ホストと連結後に金属塩添加により脱保護を伴い、ロジウム錯体を再活性化可能であることを見出した。このバイオハイブリッド触媒は、硝酸銀存在下においてオキシム及びアルキンの付加環化反応において触媒活性を示すことも明らかにした。

    本研究では、多彩な反応性を示す金属錯体触媒と、精緻な反応場を提供するバレル型タンパク質の融合により、アシンメトリー配位圏を有するバイオハイブリッド触媒を構築し、従来の金属錯体や酵素にはない新たな位置選択性や官能基選択性を付与した合成反応の開拓に取り組んだ。具体的には、反応性の高いRh錯体を固定化したバイオハイブリッド触媒を活用し、位置選択的な炭素-炭素結合形成反応、また、バレル空孔内に拡張型のアシンメトリー配位圏を構築し、不斉Diels-Alder 反応を実証した。これまでに強固なバレル構造を有するニトロバインディンの疎水空孔を活用して、様々な金属錯体触媒を共有結合により残基選択的に固定化したバイオハイブリッド触媒を開発してきた。そこで、初年度は、芳香族基質の認識を狙い、ピレン部位をの空孔に固定化したアシンメトリックな反応場を作製し、不斉Diels-Alder 反応の選択性を評価した。NBのCys96 に対してN-(1-ピレニル)マレイミドを共有結合的に連結し、同様にNB変異体についても調製した。一連のコンジュゲートは、ピレン部位の誘起CD に二通りのパターンに大別されたことから、NB の空孔内においてピレン部位は2通りの配向をとると推察された。このようなピレン部位の配向の違いが、反応の選択性に寄与すると考え、Diels-Alder 反応を検討した生成物を評価したところ、NB-Pyrは高いendo選択性と立体選択性で反応が進行したピレン部位をバレル型タンパク質の疎水空孔に結合したアシンメトリックな反応場を構築し、Diels-Alder反応の選択性が制御可能であることを見出した。

    エネルギー・環境問題の克服が世界的に求められる中、環境負荷低減、資源的に豊富な元素の利用、光エネルギーの利用、を達成した上で、社会で求められる物質を高効率に変換する触媒系を開拓することが必須である。重要な物資変換方法であるオレフィン、イミン、カルボニルの水素化反応の均一系触媒として、Rh 錯体のWilkinson 触媒、Ir 錯体のCrabtree 触媒、Ru錯体の野依触媒を代表に多数の錯体が開発されているが、いずれも貴金属錯体のため、資源的に豊富な金属への移行を目指す必要がある。本研究は、次の段階として水を水素源、かつ光エネルギー利用を視野に入れた、環境負荷低減型の水素化反応を実現するFeバイオ触媒の開発に取り組んだ。昨年度までに、鉄二核のジチオラート架橋配位子の末端にマレイミド部を導入したFe 二核錯体触媒を、強固なバレル構造内に疎水的なキャビティーを有するニトロバインディンのグルタミン96番をシステインに置換した変異体のCys残基とマレイミド基の付加反応により固定したFe二核バイオ触媒の調製をした。この第一世代のFe二核バイオ触媒から、鉄二核錯体のジチオラート架橋配位子をアザジチオラートに変換した第二世代Fe二核バイオ触媒において、水素発生活性を向上することを踏まえ、第二配位圏にプロトンシャトルとなるアミノ酸残基を適切な位置にグルタミン酸やリジンなどの残基を導入した第三世代Fe二核バイオ触媒を作製し、さらに活性向上する変異体を見出すことに成功した。また、pH 条件を変えて水素発生実験を行い、グルタミン酸がプロトンシャトルに関与していることも明らかにした。これらのバイオハイブリッド触媒のX線結晶構造解析にも成功し、Fe二核錯体部分がニトロバインディンの空孔内に共有結合的に固定化されていることも明らかにした。

    バクテリア細胞分裂において重要な役割を担うFtsZは、細胞膜上で集合化してリング状の構造体(Z-リング)を形成する。このFtsZはGTPの加水分解に伴い、集合構造の曲率を変化させながらZ-リングの収縮と細胞膜の分断を誘導する。このZ-リングが起点となりタンパク質群が集合化し、細胞分裂が進行する。これらの作用機序解明の点からも、FtsZの集合構造とその動的ダイナミクスは興味深い。本研究では、超分子的な相互作用を誘起するアダプタータンパク質を添加することでFtsZ集合体に外部から摂動を与え、その構造に変化を与える系を構築した。

    本研究では、電子移動・触媒・センサー機能を有する金属タンパク質および金ナノ粒子や高分子などのナノ材料となる機能性元素ブロックを、生体分子に特有の精密な分子間相互作用を活用した機能性ハイブリッド界面を構築し、バイオマテリアル及び生体分子デバイスへの展開をめざした。金属タンパク質を階層化してハイブリッド化する技術を発展させて、合成ポリマーとの組み合わせにより、金属タンパク質の配向やメゾスコピック構造を制御したハイブリッド材料を創製に取り組んだ。特異な電子的・光学的性質をもつ金ナノ粒子は、多彩な機能性材料への応用が期待されている。直径10-100 nmの金ナノ粒子は、金の原子核に束縛された自由電子の集団振動周波数に相当する光を吸収し、表面プラズモン共鳴 (SPR)と呼ばれる光吸収特性を示すだけでなく、酸化チタンや酸化タングステンなどの半導体光触媒上に担持した際に、高い触媒活性を示す。半導体の光触媒活性は、担持金ナノ粒子の形状や、担体への担持構造が影響を及ぼすことから、今年度は、金ナノ粒子を含むハイブリッド材料の構築に取り組んだ。タンパク質などの生体分子間の超分子相互作用を利用した担持金ナノ粒子の形状制御を行い、生体分子-金界面形成により半導体光触媒の緻密な表面改質が可能であることを見出した。また、可視光応答性光触媒である 金ナノ粒子-WO3 複合体において、担持された金ナノ粒子の集合構造を自己集合性アミロイドペプチドにより制御し、その光電変換効率を評価した。アミロイドペプチドを修飾した金ナノ粒子は酸性条件下で繊維状の金ナノ粒子集合体を形成し、長波長域のプラズモン共鳴吸収を示すとともに WO3 の光電変換効率を向上に寄与することを明らかとした。

    生体内での生合成や代謝反応は、いわゆる直截的な有機合成反応の基本例である。その効率的な反応には生体触媒である酵素の関与が必須である。化学の立場で直截的反応を設計する際に、酵素を目的に応じて改変して利用することは、有効なアプローチの一つと言える。我々は、タンパク質の空孔に非天然の金属錯体を挿入することにより、天然の酵素では実現が難しい反応(C-H結合の活性化、C-C結合形成、水素発生等)の実施や反応の立体選択性の向上などに結びつくことを本課題研究で明らかにした。さらに、タンパク質空孔の反応場を遺伝子操作によってチューニングすることにより、反応の活性や選択性の更なる制御も可能となることを示した。

    金ナノパーティクルを2次元平面上に自在に配列することは、多くの研究者が挑戦している目標であるが、従来の配列法では小型のナノパーティクルを設計パターンどおりに配列させることが出来なかった。本研究はこの問題に対して、重金属捕捉蛋白質MTとDNA結合蛋白質ZFの人工融合蛋白質ZFMTを合成し、金クラスター(Au11)と化学量論的に結合させた後、DNAの高次構造体上に定位することにより、幾何模様を描かせることに成功した。

    本研究では、生体内のCaシグナルと関連したタンパク質発現と細胞機能を解明するためのプローブ分子として、塩基配列認識部位を自在に設計でき、かつ、Caセンサー機能を有する人工転写因子の創製を目指して研究を行った。本年度は、Caセンサー型転写因子の基盤タンパク質の調整を行った。すでに申請者は、ジンクフィンガーZif268を参考に、2つのフィンガーユニットのC端にCa結合タンパク質であるトロポニンCのヘリックスーターンーヘリックスのターン部分以降のモチーフをカップリングした、フユージョンタンパク質FlF2-Tnが、Caイオン存在下では、DNAとの結合が低下することを明らかにした。分子モデリングの結果を踏まえ、Ca結合によってフレキシブルなループ部分の構造変化によってDNAとの立体障害を引き起こす機構のためと考え、このような構造変化による結合阻害が大きくなるような変異を導入したタンパク質の大腸菌での発現系の構築を行った。目的のタンパク質をコードするDNA断片を用意し、これをマルトース結合タンパク質とのフユージョンタンパク質として発現するようにプラスミドに導入した。形質転換後の大腸菌BL21の培養条件、誘導条件の最適化を行った。また、ライセートから可溶性画分を、アミロースレジン及びヘパリンセファロースによるアフィニティーカラムクロマトグラフィー、次いで、DEAEカラムによる陰イオンカラムクロマトグラフィーによる最終精製標品を得る精製段階を確立した。同様に、DNAの認識部位が異なる変異タンパク質についても大量発現及び精製を行った。

    本計画は「緑色植物の光合成チタコイド膜を参考に、有機・無機複合型ナノ構造を構築すること」である。この課題に対して平成18年度は以下の成果を得た。 1)14〜17年度にかけて我々はシアノバクテリアの光捕集蛋白質を参考に新しい原理に基づくアンテナクロロフィルの開発をおこない、また、長い蛍光寿命を有するポルフィリンアレイの構築と色素アレイのスペクトル制限分子力学シミュレーションプログラムの開発を行なってきたが、本年度はその集大成として色素配向の分布構造を明らかにし、PSIとの比較をおこなった。また、この成果は今後クロロフィル型の高効率光エネルギー輸送系の構築をおこなう基礎になると期待できる。 2)ヒドロゲナーゼのモデル化に関する生物無機化学的研究を試み、[NiFe]活性中心に関して、システイン含有テトラペプチドを配位子とするニッケル塩の合成・構造解析(NMR、EXAFS)に成功し、[NiFe]ヒドロゲナーゼ中心構造構築のためのプラットフォームづくりをおこなった。この成果は今後Feを導入し、安定な光合成型光エネルギー変換水素発生系を構築するための基礎になるものと期待される。 3)クロロフィル誘導体を用いて、シアノバクテリアPSIIの光電変換中心であるいわゆるスペシャルペアの忠実構造モデルの合成に成功した。このモデルは今後アクセサリークロロフィルのモデルやフェオフィチンモデルを結合させた系への発展の基礎になるものと考えている。 4)上記アンテナクロロフィルモデルをシリコン型ベシクルの脂質2重膜中に高密度に閉じ込めることに成功した。この成果は、将来、初発電荷分離の反応中心、水素発生サイト、酸素発生サイトをシリコンナノベシクルの表面に組み込む基礎になるものと期待される。

    本研究では、DNAにより構成される空間を、塩基配列情報を含んだ情報ナノ空間ととらえ、この情報に基づき金属錯体などの機能性物質群を分子レベルで精緻に配置することを目的をとして、金属錯体を結合した人工亜鉛フィンガーを合成及びジンクフィンガーによる金属錯体配列を行うテンプレートを拡張するために、2重鎖を束ねたDXモチーフの検討を行い、2次元、3次元上に定位する手法の確立を行った。DXには4または5本鎖からなる数種類があるが、本研究では5本鎖からなる逆平行型のDXを用いた。ZFとしてGGGGCGを認識する2ドメインのF1F2、および、トリスビピリジンRu(II)錯体を結合したRu-F1F2を用いた。X線構造解析により明らかにされたDNAのZF結合部位とZF本体の空間配置を考慮して、認識塩基配列のDX内での位置を設計した。ZFとDXとの結合及び相互作用についてはゲルシフトアッセイ(EMSA)を用いて調べた。EMSA実験でのDXは全て[γ-^<32>P] ATPで1つのssDNAを5'-末端標識後に、アニーリングしたものを用いた。認識部位を移動することで、ジンクフィンガー及びRu錯体の位置が位相をもって変化する。そこで、ZF結合部位の位相を変化させたDXテンプレートを用意し、ZFを導入したところ、すべての場合において結合することが分かった。ZF結合部位の位置を交叉部の右、左、あるいは両方に組み込んだ配列においても、ZFが結合可能であることが分かった。それぞれの位相についてZF部位を4ユニットに増加させたところ、ZF濃度を増加させるにつれて目的通りに複数のZFユニットを配置できることがわかった。本年度の研究成果により、DX分子をテンプレートに用いることによって、金属錯体間の距離を精密に制御して多数配列した系を構築できることを明らかにした。

    本年度の成果は以下のとおりである。 1)光活性分子素子とジンクフィンガーの融合・DNAとの結合:まず、従来の配列を変えN端側にルテニウム(オスミウム)トリスバイピリジン錯体部を移した。 Tbp^-F1F2:Tbp^-GTGEKPYG-CRICGRNFSRSDDLTRHIRTHTGEKPYGCRICGRNFSRSDHLTR-HIRTHTGEKPYYG この配列換えによりケミカルライゲーション法の適用が可能になり、自由にフィンガー側の配列を選べるようになる。改めてTbp^-ZFの合成法を検討し、まず、ライゲーションの原料になるTbp^-GTGEKPYGチオエステルの大量合成法確立に努めた。その結果、TAMPAL resinから固相法により伸長し、直接チオエステルを切り出す方法が有効であることを見出した。この方法でTbp^-GTGEKPYG-F1F2とTbp^-GTGEKPYG-F2F1(F1、F2は何れも単鎖のジンクフィンガー)の合成を試み、前者については単離・精製に成功し、更に、50bp DNA上に5個直列配列させることに成功した。後者についても、Tbp^-GTGEKPYG-F2の合成に成功している。 2)ドットとの結合能を有する新規ジンクフィンガー融合蛋白質の合成:前年度における検討から、金のドットと1:1で反応し、安定にハンドリングすることが可能なペプチドとして、メタロチオネイン(MTIIのαドメイン)とジンクフィンガーの融合蛋白質の合成を企図した。 F3F3-MT : TGEKPYGCRICGRNFSRSDNLTRHIRTHTGFKPYGCRICGRNFSRSDNLTRHIRTHTGEKP YG-MTII_α 様々な検討の結果、固相合成後液相でのフラグメント縮合によりこの融合蛋白質の単離・生成に成功した。現在、金ドットの導入を検討中である。

    本研究では、DNAにより構成される2次元基盤及び、基盤の塩基配列情報を読み出す分子としての亜鉛フィンガータンパク質に金属錯体を結合したユニットにより、機能性物質群を分子レベルで精緻に配置することを目的をとして研究を行った。本研究の開始時点では、DNAの格子としてポルフィリン分子を使いグリッド化を検討したが、より効率的な手法としてDNAのみからなる2次元DNA基盤となるDXモチーフを使用した。また、機能部位の配列するユニットである2ユニットの亜鉛フィンガーと金属錯体を結合したユニットの合成を行った。ZFとしてGGGGCGを認識する2ドメインのF1F2、および、トリスビピリジンRu(II)及び、Os(II)錯体を結合したフィンガーの合成に成功した。基盤のDXには4または5本鎖からなる数種類があるが、本研究では5本鎖からなる逆平行型のDXを用いた。X線構造解析により明らかにされたDNAのZF結合部位とZF本体の空間配置を考慮して、認識塩基配列のDX内での位置を設計した。ZFとDXとの結合及び相互作用についてはゲルシフトアッセイ(EMSA)を用いて調べた。EMSA実験でのDXは全て[γ-^<32>P]ATPで1つのssDNAを5' -末端標識後に、アニーリングしたものを用いた。認識部位の位相、位置、数を変えた様々なテンプレートを用いてスクリーニングを行い、DX分子をテンプレートに用いることによって、金属錯体間の距離を精密に制御して多数配列した系を構築できることを明らかにした。また、ジンクフィンガーによる機能部位配列と組み合わすことができる新しいDNA基盤分子として、リンカーを介して金属ポルフィリンを結合した2重鎖DNAの合成にも成功した。

    本研究は、シアノバクテリアの反応中心を参考にして、最終的に水の可視光分解を実現すること目指しており、その第一段階として、ポルフィリンを用いたシアノバクテリア型アンテナクロロフィルモデルの構築を目指した。シアノバクテリアのアンテナクロロフィルは、隣接クロロフィル同士が6〜26Å離れて様々に配向・集合している)。そのモデル化のため短いリンカー部を有するポルフィリンアミノ酸のオリゴマー(二、四、八量体)の合成を行った。 オリゴマー中のポルフィリンの配向は、励起子バンドの形成と分光挙動に大きな影響を与えるため、スペクトルデータからオリゴマー中のポルフィリン配向をシミュレートすることが可能である。我々はこのための解析プログラムを開発した。また、オリゴマーの蛍光収率を2座配位子により制御し、蛍光を著しく増大させる条件を明らかにした。上記プログラムを用いた配向解析の結果、我々のオリゴマーはアンテナクロロフィルとよく似た形態を持ち、エチレンジアミンの添加にポルフィリン同士の会合はface-to-face型からhead-to-tail型に変化する。この構造変化に伴うエネルギーダイヤグラムの変化と、隣接ポルフィリン間におけるエネルギー移動の速度を計算した結果、B-band部を通してのエネルギー移動速度はアンテナクロロフィルに匹敵するが、Q-band部分は、それ程の効率にはならない。

    鉄含有金属酵素においては、鉄イオンの高い反応性は、基質と結合したとき等の特定の場合にのみ有効となり、通常は不活性化させた状態にある。このような生体での巧妙な機構を解明するために、本申請者は、現在までの研究成果からで明らかになった配位酸素原子へのNH…O水素結合の機能を光制御系の構築を進めている。これまでに、すでに、NH…O水素結合の機能として、金属-酸素結合を安定化すること、また、金属原子の状態を変化することを明らかにしている。そこで、特に、天然の鉄酵素にも多く見られるカルボキシラート配位への水素結合を光制御する配位子、3-(3-t-BuCONHC_6H_4CH=N)C_6H_4COOHを設計し合成を行った。申請者が明らかにした、NH…O水素結合がカルボキシレートアニオン状態のみで形成されることを踏まえて、光照射によるアゾメチン基のシス・トランスの変換挙動等の性質について検討している段階である。 水素結合を形成した鉄錯体の合成についても検討を行っており、まず、アミド基の回転が制限されているカルボン酸配位子を用いて錯体の単離し、構造等の詳細な情報を調べている。現在、水素結合の強度により配位原子の塩基性を変えることにより鉄中心の配位構造を変化できることが明らかになってきた。カルボキシル基とアミド基をケンプ酸でつなげた新規配位子についても合成を行い、プロトン化に連動した構造変化も見いだすことができた。
