Oxidative cleavage of peptide and protein disulphide bonds by gold(III): a mechanism for gold toxicity

Abstract

The oxidative cleavage of disulphide bonds to form the sulphonic acid derivatives is shown to be an important reaction of AuX4(X = Cl, Br) with proteins and peptides; the implications of this reaction for the toxicity of gold compounds are discussed.
