Abstract

Abstract The g-value and linewidth of ESR spectra of methylamine dehydrogenase (primary-amine:(acceptor) oxidoreductase (deaminating) EC 1.4.99.-) and methanol dehydrogenase (alcohol:(acceptor) oxidoreductase, EC 1.1.99.8) are very similar. This similarity is also reflected in electron-nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) results, the coupling constants of two protons in one enzyme equalling those in the other. The presence of a third proton in the ENDOR spectrum of methylamine dehydrogenase suggests a different structure or a different kind of interaction which can be related to the finding that the resolved prosthetic group is protein-bound. The bound prosthetic group has a high redox-potential, supporting the conclusion from the ESR and ENDOR results that it is a quinone derivative.
