Kinetics and thermodynamics of the internal electron transfer process in thePseudomonas stutzeri enzyme have been studied and found to be dominated by pronounced interactions between thec- and thed<sub>1</sub>- hemes. The interactions are expressed in both dramatic changes in the internal electron transfer rates between these sites and in marked cooperativity in their electron affinity. The results constitute a prime example of intra-protein control of the electron transfer rates by allosteric interactions. Kroneck, Peter M. H. Pecht, Israel Kroneck, Peter M. H. Zumft, Walter G.
