Verdoheme formation in Proteus mirabilis catalase.

BACKGROUND: Heme oxidative degradation has been extensively investigated in peroxidases but not in catalases. The verdoheme formation, a product of heme oxidation which inactivates the enzyme, was studied in Proteus mirabilis catalase. METHODS: The verdoheme was generated by adding peracetic acid and analyzed by mass spectrometry and spectrophotometry. RESULTS: Kinetics follow-up of different catalase reactional intermediates shows that i) the formation of compound I always precedes that of verdoheme, ii) compound III is never observed, iii) the rate of compound II decomposition is not compatible with that of verdoheme formation, and iv) dithiothreitol prevents the verdoheme formation but not that of compound II, whereas NADPH prevents both of them. The formation of verdoheme is strongly inhibited by EDTA but not increased by Fe3+ or Cu2+ salts. The generation of verdoheme is facilitated by the presence of protein radicals as observed in the F194Y mutated catalase. The inability of the inactive variant (H54F) to form verdoheme, indicates that the heme oxidation is fully associated to the enzyme catalysis. CONCLUSION: These data, taken together, strongly suggest that the verdoheme formation pathway originates from compound I rather than from compound II. GENERAL SIGNIFICANCE: The autocatalytic verdoheme formation is likely to occur in vivo.

The most recent references are shown first. Citation data come partly from CiteXplore and partly from an automated harvesting procedure. Note that this is likely to be only a partial list as not all journals are covered by either method. However, we are continually building up the citation data so more and more references will be included with time.
