The rates of Cu(ii)–ATCUN complex formation. Why so slow?†
We used a series of modified/substituted GGH analogues to investigate the kinetics of Cu(II) binding to ACTUN peptides. Rules for rate modulation by 1st and 2nd sphere interactions were established, providing crucial insight into elucidation of the reaction mechanism and its contribution to biological copper transport.
