Sedimentation Equilibrium Studies on the Interaction Between Cytochrome C and Cytochrome C Peroxidase

Sedimentation Equilibrium Studies on the Interaction Between Cytochrome C and Cytochrome C Peroxidase

Abstract

The interaction between cytochrome c and cytochrome c peroxidase was investigated using sedimentation equilibrium at pH 6,20 degrees C, in a number of buffer systems varying in ionic strength between 1 and 100 mM. Between 10 and 100 mM ionic strengths, the sedimentation of the individual proteins was essentially ideal, and sedimentation equilibrium experiments on mixtures of the two proteins were analyzed assuming ideal solution behavior. Analysis of the distribution of mixtures of cytochrome c and cytochrome c peroxidase in the ultracentrifuge cell based on a model involving the formation of a 1:1 cytochrome c-cytochrome c peroxidase complex gave values of the equilibrium dissociation constant ranging from 2.3 +/- 2.7 microM at 10 mM ionic strength to infinity (no detectable interaction) at 100 mM ionic strength. Attempts to determine the presence of complexes involving two cytochrome c molecules bound to cytochrome c peroxidase were inconclusive.
