Active Site Topology of Artificial Peroxidase-like Hemoproteins Based on Antibodies Constructed from a Specifically Designed Ortho-carboxy-substituted Tetraarylporphyrin

Mahy, J.-P.

Eur. J. Biochem., 1998, 10.1046/j.1432-1327.1998.2570121.x

The topology of the binding site has been studied for two monoclonal antibodies 13G10 and 14H7, elicited against iron(III)‐α,α,α,β‐meso‐tetrakis(ortho‐carboxyphenyl)porphyrin {α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin]}, and which exhibit in the presence of this α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin] cofactor a peroxidase activity. A comparison of the dissociation constants of the complexes of 13G10 and 14H7 with various tetra‐aryl‐substituted porphyrin has shown that : (a) the central iron(III) atom of α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin] is not recognized by either of the two antibodies; and (b) the ortho‐carboxylate substituents of the meso‐phenyl rings of α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin] are essential for the recognition of the porphyrin by 13G10 and 14H7. Measurement of the dissociation constants for the complexes of 13G10 and 14H7 with the four atropoisomers of (o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrinH2 as well as mono‐ and di‐ortho‐carboxyphenyl‐substituted porphyrins suggests that the three carboxylates in the α, α, β position are recognized by both 13G10 and 14H7 with the two in the α, β positions more strongly bound to the antibody protein. Accordingly, the topology of the active site of 13G10 and 14H7 has roughly two‐thirds of the α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin] cofactor inserted into the binding site of the antibodies, with one of the aryl ring remaining outside. Three of the carboxylates are bound to the protein but no amino acid residue acts as an axial ligand to the iron atom. Chemical modification of lysine, histidine, tryptophan and arginine residues has shown that only modification of arginine residues causes a decrease in both the binding of α,α,α,β‐Fe[(o‐COOHPh)4‐porphyrin] and the peroxidase activity of both antibodies. Consequently, at least one of the carboxylates of the hapten is bound to an arginine residue and no amino acids such as lysine, histidine or tryptophan participate in the catalysis of the heterolytic cleavage of the O‐O bond of H2O2. In addition, the amino acid sequence of both antibodies not only reveals the presence of arginine residues, which could be those involved in the binding of the carboxylates of the hapten, but also the presence of several amino acids in the complementary determining regions which could bind other carboxylates through a network of H bonds.

An Artificial Enzyme Made by Covalent Grafting of an FeII Complex into β-Lactoglobulin: Molecular Chemistry, Oxidation Catalysis, and Reaction-Intermediate Monitoring in a Protein

An artificial metalloenzyme based on the covalent grafting of a nonheme FeII polyazadentate complex into bovine β‐lactoglobulin has been prepared and characterized by using various spectroscopic techniques. Attachment of the FeII catalyst to the protein scaffold is shown to occur specifically at Cys121. In addition, spectrophotometric titration with cyanide ions based on the spin‐state conversion of the initial high spin (S=2) FeII complex into a low spin (S=0) one allows qualitative and quantitative characterization of the metal center’s first coordination sphere. This biohybrid catalyst activates hydrogen peroxide to oxidize thioanisole into phenylmethylsulfoxide as the sole product with an enantiomeric excess of up to 20 %. Investigation of the reaction between the biohybrid system and H2O2 reveals the generation of a high spin (S=5/2) FeIII(η2‐O2) intermediate, which is proposed to be responsible for the catalytic sulfoxidation of the substrate.
