Abstract

The solution chemical properties, Superoxide dismutase and catecholase activity of the copper(II)-Ac-His-HisGly-His-OH (hhgh) complexes were studied to identify functional and structural models of copper-containing oxidases. The solution speciation was determined in the pH range 3-11 by two independent methods (potentiometry and pH-dependent EPR measurements). The results obtained by the two methods agree very well with each other and show the formation of differently protonated CuHxL complexes (where x = 2,1, 0, -1, -2, -3) in aqueous solution. The spectroscopic (UV-Vis, CD, EPR) data indicate that the coordination of the imidazole rings is a determinant factor in all these complexes. Amide coordinated complexes are dominant only above pH 8. This offers excellent possibilities for structural/functional modelling of copper(II) containing metalloenzymes. Indeed, the {3Nim} coordinated CuL species (pH = 6-7) has efficient Superoxide dismutase-like activity. The {3N im,OH-} coordinated CuH-1 L possesses outstanding activity to catalyze the oxidation of 3,5-di-tert-butylcatechol (H2dtbc) by dioxygen in 86 wt% methanol-water, providing the first example that copper(II)-peptide complexes are able to mimic copper containing oxidases.
