Scaffolded amino acids as a close structural mimic of type-3 copper binding sites

Abstract

We report the use of triazacyclophane (TAC)-scaffolded amino acids as a structural mimic for 3-histidine metal-binding sites in metalloproteins, especially for the mimicry of type-3 copper binding sites as are present in hemocyanin, tyrosinase and catechol oxidase.
