We have been pursuing the detailed pathway by which cytochrome P450cam (CYP101) transfers electrons through a three diffusible protein subunit system, and how this system might be engineered to eliminate nonessential subunits and the costly NADH cofactor. One of these subunit proteins, putidaredoxin (Pdx), is an 11.6 kDa [Fe2S2] redox protein that transfers two electrons in two separate steps from the flavin containing putidaredoxin reductase (PdR) to the heme protein, cytochrome CYP101 in the P450cam catalytic cycle. It has recently come to light, through NMR measurements, that there can be appreciable differences in the conformational dynamics between the reduced and oxidized states of Pdx, which in turn, effects its interaction with its redox partners, and metal oxide electrodes. In the current investigation, we describe our efforts to measure the formal potential (E0') of wild-type putidaredoxin and selected mutants, as a function of temperature with the expectation of learning more about the behavior of this protein as a function of its oxidation state.
