Evidence of A and E 1 Normal Mode Absorbances in the Infrared Spectrum of Hemoglobin
Abstract:In an FT-IR study of the secondary structure of proteins, several concentrations, cell pathlengths, resolution values, and machine parameters were investigated. During this investigation we observed that 1-cm−1 resolution spectra of hemoglobin enhanced by second derivatives revealed an additional band in the α-helix region. Krimm and co-workers predicted the existence of two absorbances in the infrared amide I region (1600-1700 cm−1) of α-helical proteins in solution that correspond to the A and E 1 amide carbonyl vibrational modes. However, they observed only one band in the α-helix region at 2 cm−1 resolution.
