Abstract

The temperature dependence of the reduction potential of the CuA site in carbon monoxide inhibited cytochrome c oxidase has been measured with a spectroelectrochemical method adapted to the relatively weak near-infrared absorption of this copper ion. These measurements, together with parallel measurements on the 604-nm absorption due to Fea, indicate that an interaction between CuA and Fea causes the reduction potential for one of these sites to be decreased by approximately 40 mV upon reduction of the other. The temperature dependence of the CuA reduction potential indicates a relatively large and negative standard entropy of reduction of CuA (ΔS°′ = -48.7 ± 2.3 eu). Possible implications of the intersite redox interaction and the large standard entropy of reduction of the CuA site are discussed.
