Intra-Molecular Electron Transfer in Proteins
Abstract:Intra-molecular electron transfer is a key process, which is of prime importance, in photosynthesis, mitochondrial electron transfer and the action of many multi-centre enzymes. This mini-review considers the possible mechanisms of intra-molecular electron transfer in proteins and reviews the recent developments relating to possible electron tunnelling and electron hopping processes within di-heme cytochrome c peroxidase.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
