Аннотация The five-coordinate NO-bound heme in cytochrome c‘ from an overexpressing variant of denitrifying R. sphaeroides 2.4.3 was investigated by proton, nitrogen, and deuterium Q-band ENDOR (electron nuclear double resonance). ENDOR was a direct probe of the unpaired electron density on the nitrogen of NO and, as measured across the EPR line shape, showed a hyperfine coupling range from 36 to 44 MHz for 14NO and 51 to 63 MHz for 15NO. The smallest NO coupling occurred at an electronic g-tensor axis perpendicular to the FeNO plane, and the largest hyperfine coupling occurred in the FeNO plane where the highest nitrogen valence spin density is located. The isotropic component of the NO hyperfine coupling indicated that the electron spin on the NO is not simply in a π* orbital having only 2p character but is in an orbital having 2s and 2p character in a 1:2 ratio. ENDOR frequencies from heme meso-protons, assigned with reference to porphyrin models, were determined to result from an anisotropic hyperfine tensor. This tensor indicated the orientation of the heme with respect to the FeNO plane and showed that the FeNO plane bisects the heme N−Fe−N 90° angle. ENDOR provided additional structural information through dipolar couplings, as follows: (1) to the nearest proton of the Phe14 ring, 3.1 Å away from the heme iron, where Phe14 is positioned to occlude binding of NO as a 6th (distal) ligand; (2) to exchangeable deuterons assigned to Arg127 which may H-bond with the proximal NO ligand.
