A Copper(II) Thiolate from Reductive Cleavage of an S-Nitrosothiol.
Summary of "A Copper(II) Thiolate from Reductive Cleavage of an S-Nitrosothiol."
S-Nitrosothiols RSNO represent circulating reservoirs of nitric oxide activity in the plasma and play intricate roles in protein function control in health and disease. While nitric oxide has been shown to reductively nitrosylate copper(II) centers to form copper(I) complexes and ENO species (E = R(2)N, RO), well-characterized examples of the reverse reaction are rare. Employing the copper(I) β-diketiminate [Me(2)NN]Cu, we illustrate a clear example in which an RS-NO bond is cleaved to release NO(gas) with formation of a discrete copper(II) thiolate. The addition of Ph(3)CSNO to [Me(2)NN]Cu generates the three-coordinate copper(II) thiolate [Me(2)NN]CuSCPh(3), which is unstable toward free NO.

Unstable isotopes of copper that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Cu atoms with atomic weights 58-62, 64, and 66-68 are radioactive copper isotopes.
Menkes Kinky Hair Syndrome
An inherited disorder of copper metabolism transmitted as an X-linked trait and characterized by the infantile onset of HYPOTHERMIA, feeding difficulties, hypotonia, SEIZURES, bony deformities, pili torti (twisted hair), and severely impaired intellectual development. Defective copper transport across plasma and endoplasmic reticulum membranes results in copper being unavailable for the synthesis of several copper containing enzymes, including PROTEIN-LYSINE 6-OXIDASE; CERULOPLASMIN; and SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE. Pathologic changes include defects in arterial elastin, neuronal loss, and gliosis. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p125)
A sulfate salt of copper. It is a potent emetic and is used as an antidote for poisoning by phosphorus. It also can be used to prevent the growth of algae.
A rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the deposition of copper in the BRAIN; LIVER; CORNEA; and other organs. It is caused by defects in the ATP7B gene encoding copper-transporting ATPase 2 (EC 188.8.131.52), also known as the Wilson disease protein. The overload of copper inevitably leads to progressive liver and neurological dysfunction such as LIVER CIRRHOSIS; TREMOR; ATAXIA and intellectual deterioration. Hepatic dysfunction may precede neurologic dysfunction by several years.
Amine Oxidase (copper-containing)
A group of enzymes including those oxidizing primary monoamines, diamines, and histamine. They are copper proteins, and, as their action depends on a carbonyl group, they are sensitive to inhibition by semicarbazide. EC 184.108.40.206.
