Re(CO)3(H2O)3+ binding to lysozyme: structure and reactivity

Author affiliations

Abstract

The reaction of Re(CO)3(H2O)3+ with hen egg white lysozyme in aqueous solution results in a single covalent adduct. Both NMR spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction show that the rhenium tricarbonyl cation binds to His15via replacement of one of the coordinated water molecules. The formation of this adduct does not greatly affect the structure of the protein.
