(BQ) Part 2 book "A complete introduction to modern NMR spectroscopy" has contents: The study of dynamic processes by NMR; electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy and chemically induced dynamic nuclear polarization; double resonance techniques and complex pulse sequences, two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance, NMR studies of biological important molecules,...and other contents.
In the Biomedical Applications of Biophysics, Volume 3 of the Handbook of Modern Biophysics,
the authors have added to the topics introduced in Volume 1, Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics.
These additional topics help trace the broad field of biophysics.
Patrice Koehl starts the book with an introduction to protein structure prediction based on
energetics, homology modeling, and ab-initio calculations. Dickey and Faller follow with a
“how-to approach” to model biomembranes.
Pyruvate: ferredoxin oxidoreductase (POR; EC 220.127.116.11) catalyzes the thia-mine pyrophosphate-dependent oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to
form acetyl-CoA and CO2
. The thermophilic, obligate chemolithoauto-trophic hydrogen-oxidizing bacterium, Hydrogenobacter thermophilusTK-6,
via the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle.
Quercetin 2,3-dioxygenase (2,3QD) is a copper-containing dioxygenase that catalyses the oxidation of the ﬂavonol quercetin to 2-protocatechuoylphloroglucinol carboxylic acid with concomitant production of carbon monoxide. In contrast to iron dioxygenases, very little is known about copper dioxygenases. We have characterized 2,3QD from the fungus Aspergillus japonicus by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR). At pH 6.0, 2,3QD shows a mixture of two EPR species. The major form has parameters typical of type 2 Cu sites (g// ¼ 2.330, A// ¼ 13.
Conventional and saturation transfer electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR and ST EPR) was used to study the orientation of probe molecules in muscle ﬁbers in diﬀerent intermediate states of the ATP hydrolysis cycle. A separate procedure was used to obtain ST EPR spectra with precise phase settings even in the case of samples with low spectral intensity. Fibers prepared from rabbit psoas muscle were labeled with isothiocyanate spin labels at the reactive thiol sites of the catalytic domain of myosin....
Exploring enzymatic mechanisms at a molecular level is one of the major
challenges in modern biophysics. Based on enzyme structure data, as
obtained by X-ray crystallography or NMR spectroscopy, one can suggest
how substrates and products bind for catalysis.
Ech hydrogenase fromMethanosarcina barkeriis a member of a distinct
group of membrane-bound [NiFe] hydrogenases with sequence similarity
to energy-conserving NADH:quinone oxidoreductase (complex I). The
sequence of the enzyme predicts the binding of three [4Fe-4S] clusters, one
by subunit EchC and two by subunit EchF. Previous studies had shown
that two of these clusters could be fully reduced under 10
Pa of H2at pH
7 giving rise to two distinct S½ electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR)
signals, designated as the g¼1.89 and theg¼1.92 signal....
Solid state lasers include lasers based on paramagnetic ions, organic dye molecules, and
color centers in crystalline or amorphous hosts. Semiconductor lasers are included in this
section because they are a solid state device, although the nature of the active center—
recombination of electrons and holes—is different from the dopants or defect centers used in
other lasers in this category.
