They react readily with thiol reagents,with large spectral changes, which should be useful for testing the accessibility of the flavin 4-position in flavoproteins. They have an oxidation-reduction potential at pH 7 of -0.055 V, approximately 0.15 V higher than that of native flavins. The spectral characteristics in the fully reduced state show two clear absorption bands, dependent on the ionization state (pK = 4.5). The lowest energy band of the neutral dihydroflavin has a maximum at ~485 nm while that of the anion is ~425 nm. This should be useful in defining the ionization state of the reduced flavin in flavoproteins. The spectral characteristics of the semiquinoid forms of 4-thioflavins have been determined bound to the apoproteins of flavodoxin and D-amino acid oxidase. The neutral radical has an absorption maximum at 730 nm, while the anion radical has an unusually sharp peak at 415 nm. The reduced forms of 4-thioflavins, free and enzyme bound, react with O2 to regenerate oxidized 4-thioflavin. Reduced 4-thio-FAD p-hydroxybenzoate hydroxylase, however, in its reaction with 02, undergoes a substantial conversion to the native FAD-enzyme. 4-Thioflavins are unusually susceptible to attack by nucleophiles such as hydroxylamine and amines to form the respective 4-hydroxyimino- and 4-aminoflavins, offering the possibility of forming stable covalent flavin-protein linkages with suitably positioned protein residues. Thiols also react with 4-thioflavins, promoting their conversion to the normal (4- oxo) flavin coenzymes. Such reactivity has been found with the apoenzymes of glucose oxidase and lactate oxidase, providing evidence for a thiol residue in the active site of these enzymes.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>1984</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Claiborne, Al</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Ghisla, Sandro</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Massey, Vincent</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/8451/1/4_Thioflavins_as_active_site_probes_of_flavoproteins.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Biemann, Monika</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:title>4-Thioflavins as active site probes of flavoproteins : general properties</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:43:47Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/8451"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/8451/1/4_Thioflavins_as_active_site_probes_of_flavoproteins.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Claiborne, Al</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Biological Chemistry 259 (1984), 15, pp. 9667-9678</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Massey, Vincent</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Ghisla, Sandro</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
