NMR characterization of a Cu(i)-bound peptide model of copper metallochaperones: Insights on the role of methionine

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first NMR structure of a Cu(I)-bound metallochaperone model with the conserved sequence MT/HCXXC revealed that at pH ∼3.0 and ∼6.8 Cu(I) binds through one Cys and the Met rather than the two Cys residues, differently than at pH ∼8.5. This suggests a possible role of Met in metal transport.
