Binding modes of carboxylate- and acetylacetonate-linked chromophores to homodisperse polyoxotitanate nanoclusters.
Summary of "Binding modes of carboxylate- and acetylacetonate-linked chromophores to homodisperse polyoxotitanate nanoclusters."
The binding of carboxylate- and acetylacetonate-linked chromophores to homodisperse polyoxotitanate nanoclusters with 17 Ti atoms or more are surveyed and found to be limited to chelate-bidentate and the bridging modes, the former being dominant for the acetylacetonate-linked chromophores, the latter for the carboxylate-linkers. Chromophores with acetylacetonate linking groups invariably bind in the chelate mode, whereas carboxylic acid terminated chromophores more frequently are observed to have the bridging mode, with the exception of three cases in which a strong electron donating substituent is present on two different sensitizers. The calculations for isonicotinate (INA) and nitrophenylacetylacetonate (NPA) functionalized Ti17 clusters show the observed binding modes to correspond to the lower energy functionalized clusters, but do not predict the difference between the cinnamic acid and dimethylaminocinnamic acid binding to Ti17, which are bridging and chelate respectively. Both binding modes were never observed to occur for a single chromophore, even when synthetic conditions were varied. Density of state calculations show broadening and splitting of the chromophore LUMO on complexation due to interaction with the cluster's conduction band, as well as frequent penetration of sensitizer orbitals into the bandgap of the functionalized nanoparticle.

Pyrroline Carboxylate Reductases
A group of enzymes that catalyze the reduction of 1-pyrroline carboxylate to proline in the presence of NAD(P)H. Includes both the 2-oxidoreductase (EC 22.214.171.124) and the 5-oxidoreductase (EC 126.96.36.199). The former also reduces 1-piperidine-2-carboxylate to pipecolate and the latter also reduces 1-pyrroline-3-hydroxy-5-carboxylate to hydroxyproline.
An enzyme that catalyzes the oxidation of 1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate to L-GLUTAMATE in the presence of NAD. Defects in the enzyme are the cause of hyperprolinemia II.
Photosensitive protein complexes of varied light absorption properties which are expressed in the PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They are OPSINS conjugated with VITAMIN A-based chromophores. Chromophores capture photons of light, leading to the activation of opsins and a biochemical cascade that ultimately excites the photoreceptor cells.
Open chain tetrapyrroles that function as light harvesting chromophores in PHYCOBILIPROTEINS.
A subcomponent of complement C1, composed of six copies of three polypeptide chains (A, B, and C), each encoded by a separate gene (C1QA; C1QB; C1QC). This complex is arranged in nine subunits (six disulfide-linked dimers of A and B, and three disulfide-linked homodimers of C). C1q has binding sites for antibodies (the heavy chain of IMMUNOGLOBULIN G or IMMUNOGLOBULIN M). The interaction of C1q and immunoglobulin activates the two proenzymes COMPLEMENT C1R and COMPLEMENT C1S, thus initiating the cascade of COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION via the CLASSICAL COMPLEMENT PATHWAY.
