Novel Biological Copper Proteins through
Anion Addition to the Mutant Metl21Gly
of Pseudomonas aevuginosa Azurin""
Momcilo Vidakovic and Juris P. Germanas*
Blue copper proteins are widely distributed in nature, where
they function as electron-transfer mediators in important biochemical processes such as photosynthesis and metabolism.[']
The unique spectrocheniical properties of these proteins have
long attracted the attention of bioinorganic chemists.i21For
proteins in the oxidized state [copper(~r)],these characteristics
include an intense absorption band centered around 600 nm
( E = 2000-6000 M - l c m - ' ) , an EPR spectrum with an unusually small copper hyperfine splitting ( I = 3/2, A ,, 2 7 0 x
cm-'). and anomalously high redox potentials for the
Cu"/Cu' couple [180-680 mV versus the normal hydrogen electrode (NHE)] . Crystallographic analysis has revealed that the
copper(I1) ion in these proteins is coordinated to two histidine
residues and one cysteine residue in an approximately trigonal
planar g e ~ m e t r y . ' ~Besides
these three strong interactions,
weaker axial interactions between the copper ion and other ligands are generally present. F o r example, in azurin and plastocyanin, the thioether sulfur atom of a methionine residue interacts with the copper center, while in stellacyanin, a glutamine
carboxamide oxygen is thought to coordinate to the metal.[41
The nature of the axial interaction is believed to significantly
influence the spectrochemical characteristics of metal centers of
the blue copper proteins.[51To probe the effect of various axial
ligands on the spectroscopic and electrochemical properties of
these copper sites, we have prepared by site-directed mutagenesis a variant of Pseuc~oomonasaeruginosu azurin, Met121Gly,[61
in which the weakly coordinating (R, -cu = 3.1 A) thioether side
chain of Met121 is replaced by a hydrogen atom. This creates a
cavity that can be occupied by exogenous l i g a n d ~ . ' ~In] this
communication we report the preparation and characterization
of unique biological copper species, obtained through addition
of the anions N,, SCN-, and C N - to Metl21Gly azurin. Their
spectroscopic properties are distinct from those of any known
naturally occurring copper proteins.[''
The UV-Vis spectra of blue copper proteins display a characteristic absorption band at about 600 nm, due to a Scys(7z)to Cu"
charge transfer (LMCT) transition, along with another band at
about 450nm from a SCYh(pseudo-o) to Cu" LMCT.['' The
relative intensities of the two bands vary, depending on the
protein. A correlation between the relative intensity of the band
at 450 nm and the axial displacement of the copper atom from
the plane formed by the His,Cys ligand set has been reported for
a number of blue copper proteins.["] Upon titration of
Metl2lGly azurin with azide, thiocyanate, or cyanide, the intense absorption band at 614 nm of the uncornplexed protein
disappeared, and a new, weaker band at approximately 420 nm
arose, along with a feature a t about 590 nm (Table 1) .[' The
wavelengths of the transitions at 420 nm were dependent on the
specific anion, indicating that the anion ligated directly to the

relative to those of the 590nm bands in the spectra of the
protein -1igand adducts, we inferred a larger separation between
the copper(i1) ion and the plane of the protein's His,Cys ligand
set than in the uncomplexed form.["] The formation constants
of the 1 : 1 complexes, determined spectrophotometrically, revealed the cyanide adduct to be substantially more stable than
the azide or thiocyanate adducts (Table I).
Rcsonance Raman spectra of Metl21Gly azurin and its anion
adducts were recorded with excitation wavelengths of 568 nm
(without exogenous ligand) or 41 3 nm (with exogenous ligand).
The set of four strong bands in the spectrum of the uncomplexed
protcinl"' was replaced in the spectrum of the anion adducts
by a pair of peaks at lower energy (Fig. 1 ) . Since the most
intense band in the resonance Raman spectra of blue copper
proteins results from a predominantly Cu-S stretching vibrational rnode.l"] the shift of the intense band in the spectra of the
anion adducts to lower wavenumber indicated that the anion
complexes possessed weaker, and consequently longer, Cu-S
bonds than the uncomplexed protein (Table 1 ) . The appearance
of bands attributable to bond-stretching modes of azide and
thiocyanate in the spectra of the specific adducts further confirmed that these anions coordinated direct11 to the copper(i1)
ion of Metl2lGly azurin (Fig. 1).
The EPR data of spectra of the 1 : 1 complexes also reflected
a change in coordination environment at the copper site in the
protein-anion adducts. The copper(i1) centers of the adducts
displayed EPR spectra with axial symmetry, in contrast to the
uncomplexed protein, which displayed an EPK spectrum with
rhombic symmetry (Fig. 2). Strikingly, the values for the copper

for the adducts were considerably smaller than those seen for
common tetragonal, or type 2, copper compounds (160-220

often produce linear correlations for compounds of similar
structural or electronic origin.['31When the values of g for the
Metl21Gly-anion adducts were plotted against the values of
A . a linear correlation was obtained ( R = 0.95), which was
distinct from the correlations seen for blue or type 2 (tetragonal)
copper centers. Differences in the precise values of the adduct's
EPR parameters reflected small structural variations in the ligand environment of the copper atom of each a d d ~ c t . [ ' ~ l

Excitation w,iwlengths i,,for each protein are given. I = intensity
duced species with lower redox potentials than the free protein
(Table 1). The midpoint potential of the cyanide adduct could
not be determined by this method because of competitive oxidation of cyanide. The lower potentials of the two anion adducts
relative to Met121 Gly azurin could be rationalized by inferring
electrostatic stabilization of the higher copper oxidation state by
the negatively charged ligands.
The spectroscopic properties of the Metl 21 Gly azurin-anion
adducts indicate the presence of a novel form of protein-bound
copper having spectroscopic properties distinct from those of
either blue or type 2 copper proteins. According to a computergenerated model of the Metl21Gly active site.[I4] coordination
of external ligands to the copper(1r) ion in the space previously
occupied by the Met121 side chain should result in a distorted
tetrahedral environment for the metal center. Binding of anionic
species to the copper(r1) ion should also result in lengthening of
the other metal-ligand bonds. Absorption and resonance Raman spectra of the Metl21Gly azurin-anion complexes reflect
substantial axial displacement of the copper atom from the
plane of the His,Cys hgand set along with elongation of the
S,,,-Cu bond.[",
The values for the parallel hyperfine splittings in the EPR spectra of the 1 : 1 complexes are consistent with
diminished covalency in the S,,,-Cu bond relative to the uncomplexed form, resulting from S-Cu bond lengthening.[I5] In
natural blue copper proteins with distorted tetrahedral metal
centers and short axial interactions with neutral ligating atoms,
absorption spectra display intense bands at about 450 nm, and
EPR spectra suggest a rhombic g tensor.['] Absorption spectra
with i,,,, at about 420 nm and EPR spectra with axial symmetry
for the Met121 Gly azurin-anion adducts signify a unique electronic structure of the copper centers in these proteins as a result
of the anionic character of the axial ligands. Further support for
the proposed model of the Metl21Gly azurin-anion adduct
copper centers comes from properties of structurally characterized, pseudo-tetrahedral copper complexes. which display spectroscopic characteristics remarkably similar to those of the adducts reported here.['61
A variety of unusual copper proteins can be easily created
through addition of anions to the azurin mutant Metl 21Gly.
The ability to create ligand-accessible metal centers in coordinatively saturated metalloproteins by directed mutagenesis holds
promise for the preparation of metalloproteins with selective
ion-sensing capabilities. Further studies aimed at detailed characterization of the electronic and geometric structure, as well as
the electron-transfer properties of the active sites of these unusual proteins are in progress.
