Abstract

The peroxidase activity of wild type yeast cytochrome c and its triple mutant K72AK73AK79A adsorbed onto kaolinite was investigated as a function of pH and temperature. Both adsorbedproteins displayed an appreciable catalytic activity, which remained constant from pH 7 to 10, decreased below pH 7 and showed a remarkable increase at pH values lower than 4. In the whole pH range investigated the catalytic activity of the adsorbed wild type cytochrome c was higher than that of the mutant. Both diffuse-reflectance UV-Vis and Resonance Raman spectroscopies applied on solid samples were used to probe the structural features responsible for the catalytic activity of the immobilized proteins. At neutral and alkaline pH values a six-coordinate low-spin form of cytochrome c was observed, while at pH < 7 the formation of a high-spin species occurred whose population increased at decreasing pH. The orientation and exposure of the haem to the substrate - strictly dependent on adsorption - was found to affect the peroxidase activity.
