A thermodynamic investigation of bovine carbonic anhydrase II interaction with cobalt ion at 300 and 310K

A thermodynamic study on the interaction of bovine carbonic anhydrase II, CAII, with cobalt ions was studied by using isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) at  27 and 37°C in tris buffer solution at pH = 7.5. The heats of Co2++CAII interaction are reported and analysed in terms of the new solvation theory. It was indicated that there are three identical and non-cooperative sites for Co2+. The binding of a...

Chlorosoma: How can it contribute to photosynthesis of green bacteria?

Numerous kinetic data for excitation energy decay in bacteriochlorophylls as well as extremely short lifetimes of excitations in dominating chlorosoma pigment exclude the possibility of an efficient migration of this energy from chlorosoma to the main intra-membrane photosystem of some green bacteria. Author discusses the main purpose and molecular mechanism which account for this inconsistency in huge, 3D chlorosoma...
