Heteronuclear nuclear magnetic resonance studies of cobalt corrinoids. 15. The structure of glutathionylcobalamin: a 1H and 13C two-dimensional nuclear magnetic resonance study at 600 MHz

K L BrownD W Jacobsen


Glutathionylcobalamin (GSCbl), the complex formed between glutathione (GSH, gamma-glutamylcysteinylglycine) and aquacobalamin (H2OCbl), has been implicated as an intermediate in the pathway for the formation of the cobalamin coenzymes. In chemical model studies, GSCbl has been shown to be a substrate for methylcobalamin formation in the presence of S-adenosylmethionine and a thiol reductant. Although GSCbl was first described in 1964, the structure of this compound, particularly the site of GSH coordination, has been unknown. GSCbl was prepared by reacting GSH (5-fold molar excess) with H2OCbl in 0.1 M sodium phosphate (pH 6.5) and was purified by gel-permeation chromatography on a Bio-Gel P2 polyacrylamide column. By use of a combination of homonuclear [homonuclear J-correlated spectroscopy (COSY), homonuclear Hartmann-Hahn spectroscopy (HOHAHA), and absorption-mode nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy (NOESY)] and inverse detected heteronuclear [1H-detected heteronuclear multiple-quantum coherence (HMQC) and 1H-detected multiple-bond heteronuclear multiple-quantum coherence (HMBC) spectroscopies] two-dimensional NMR methods at 600 MHz, the complete 1H and 13C NMR spectra of GSCbl have now been assigned. Comparison of the 1H...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
