Abstract: The (Fe-O) moiety of Cytochrome c oxidase ferryl intermediate of the dioxygen activation reaction and the oxy-myoglobin (Mb-O2) structure have been probed by QM/MM (hybrid quantum mechanical/ molecular mechanical) calculations using Density Functional Theory (DFT)/MM to elucidate the effect of the heme propionates and the protein matrix on the chemistry of heme Fe-O moieties. On this line, we have probed the role of His97 in various protonation states of the heme propionate-6 in Mb and compared the results to that of the Cytochrome c oxidase chemistry.
