Stepwise Description of the Reaction
|Step 1||Ascorbate donates a single electron to one of the Cu(II) centres, which causes the hydroxide ligand to dissociate from the Cu(II) centre.|
|Step 2||A second ascorbate donates a single electron to the other Cu(II) centre, which causes the water ligand to dissociate from the Cu(II) centre.|
|Step 3||One of the Cu(I) centres donates a single electron to a dioxygen molecule, which causes it to bind in a bidentate manner and displace the water ligand.|
|Step 4||The bound superoxide abstracts a hydrogen from the peptide substrate, and water displaces one of the bonds between the superoxide and the Cu(II) centre.|
|Step 5||In a homolytic substitution, the O-O bond is broken resulting in the hydroxylation of the peptide intermediate and the Cu(II) bound peroxo.|
|Step 6||Water coordinates to the Cu(I) centre, initiating a single electron relay through His108, Gln170, water and the peptide product to the Cu(II) centre, which then donates the electron to the bound oxo group, which deprotonates a water molecule to regenerate the active site.|
|Step 7||The two semidehydroascorbates disproportionate to yield ascorbate and dehydroascorbate .|
