Contributes to the generation of reactive oxygen species. A peak at 405 nm attributable to the Tryp residues and a shoulder at 350 nm attributable to the Tyr residues were detectable. At present there is no evidence which suggests that electrons are distributed among a minimum of 12 electron-accepting groups. Of particular interest are enzymes, like xanthine oxidase (XO) (EC 1.2.3.2), that carry out essential functions but are also involved in a variety of pathologies caused by the by-products of the enzymatic reaction. Alterations of XO activity by various metals have also been probed with mixed results of either stimulation or inhibition, depending on the metal [22–25]. Methods of Enzymatic Analysis (Second Edition), https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-091302-2.50027-X. The production of reactive oxygen species by XO and its damaging consequences has prompted investigations into the ability of some compounds, such as allopurinol, nitric oxide, or macrocyclic copper II, to control and/or inhibit the enzyme activity, or scavenge the free radicals produced [10,20,21]. High concentrations of enzyme have been found in the intestinal mucosa; this enzyme contains copper instead of molybdenum. [Cu2+]  ΔA277 is the absorbance change caused by a given Cu2+ concentration and ΔAmax is the absorbance change for complete formation of the XO/Cu2+ complex as seen at 277 nm. At low Cu2+ concentrations (0.005–0.5 mM) quenching was more drastic for the emission at 405 nm than for that at 350 nm and was accompanied by a 5-nm blue-shift of both peaks; at higher Cu2+ concentrations (0.9–2 mM) quenching of the emission at 350 nm occurred and, simultaneously both peaks shifted back to their original position, respectively, at 350 and 405 nm. It has attracted lots of attention because of its potential role in tissue and vascular injuries, as well as in inflammatory diseases and chronic heart failure [10,11]. As the number of Cu2+ per enzyme molecule increases, the value of Kd is expected to decrease even if locally some of the additional binding sites exhibited a lower affinity for the metal than the first binding sites (Table 2). Exposure of XO to Cu2+ concentrations above a critical value of 0.7 mM, led to drastic inhibition of the enzymatic activity that coincided with the cooperative binding of additional Cu2+ around the molybdenum center, the binding of an additional Cu2+ around the FAD center and the progressive binding of probably three Cu2+ around the Fe/S centers. Plots obtained for the changes in absorption at 550 nm are shown in Fig. 6. The cooperative binding observed around the molybdenum center at higher Cu2+ concentrations could involve residues His863 and His954; alternatively, residue His109 in the vicinity of the Fe/S I center could also affect the molybdenum center. For all three pre-incubation times (0-, 5-, or 10-min), the apparent Km value, which was equal to 9.6 ± 0.1 µM for the control, remained unaffected. The amino acid sequence of each subunit in bovine milk XO includes 10 tryptophan and 34 tyrosine residues [13]. This paper presents a detailed review of methods of isolation, determination of xanthine oxidase activity, and the effect of plant extracts and their … However, absorbance changes were not detectable until Cu2+ concentration reached 0.4 mM (0.3 mM for 30-min pre-incubation). Intrinsic fluorescence was detected on a Cary Eclipse Fluorescence spectrophotometer equipped with temperature controller. All results were the average of at least three separate experiments. The concentration of Cu2+ varied from 0.5 µM to 2 mM and XO concentration was 6 nM. The values obtained for the enzyme apparent Vmax and Km after 20- and 30-min pre-incubation with Cu2+ are listed in Table 1. Because of its wide distribution in cells and its binding properties, copper could play a regulatory role in these enzymes activity and help in the prevention of their damaging effects. Electronic absorption spectra of XO (A) and XO incubated with Cu2+(B)  For any given spectrum, XO (2.2 µM), buffer (0.1 M, pH 7.5), and Cu2+ (50 µM to 2 mM) were added to the sample cuvette, whereas buffer (0.1 M, pH 7.5) and Cu2+ (at the same concentration as in the sample cuvette) were added to the reference cuvette. Both peaks decreased with increasing Cu2+ concentration. As evidenced by the normalized spectra shown in Fig. 9, for Cu2+ concentrations < 0.7 mM (0.005–0.5 mM) quenching was more drastic for the emission at 405 nm than for that at 350 nm and was accompanied by a 5-nm blue-shift of both peaks. Insets: value of the apparent dissociation constants Kd1 and Kd2 as a function of the pre-incubation time. The hyperbolic plots were fits of the data to Equation (3) which is typical for one site saturation ligand binding, whereas the sigmoid plots suggested cooperative ligand binding. A single sigmoid curve, indicating cooperative binding, was obtained for each pre-incubation time, over the full range of Cu2+ concentrations investigated (0.05–2 mM). Electronic absorption spectra were recorded from 250 to 700 nm on a Cary 100 Bio UV–VIS spectrophotometer. The ordinate intercept of the plot of F0/ΔF vs. 1/[Q] provides the accessible fluorophores at infinite quencher concentration and the value found in this case was 30%, thus three tryptophans. Similar plots were obtained when XO activity was assayed immediately after Cu2+ addition (0-min pre-incubation) or after 10-min pre-incubation of the enzyme with the metal. Over the same metal concentration range, alterations were also detectable around the FAD center but to a lesser extent and with no binding site saturation. Obtain 6 test tubes, add 25 µL of assay buffer into each tube and label them #1 through #6. Data indicated that Cu2+ binding to high-affinity sites caused alterations around XO molybdenum and flavin adenine dinucleotide centers, changes in secondary structure, and moderate activity inhibition; binding to low affinity sites caused alterations around all XO reactive centers including FeS, changes in tertiary structure as reflected by alterations in spectral properties, and drastic activity inhibition. The plots were linear with a common intercept on the abscissa, indicating non-competitive inhibition at Cu2+ concentrations of 5 µM and above. from 8 to 15% decrease for 5 µM Cu2+ or from 47 to 61% decrease for 1500 µM Cu2+). Stimulation was attributed to transient stabilization of XO optimal conformation. The enzyme showed an A280/A450 value of 5.6; the calculated AFR (activity to flavin ratio) value for the enzyme was 140–150 that corresponds to 65–75% functional enzyme [27]. Catalyzes the oxidation of xanthine to uric acid. Cu2+ concentrations varied from 0.001 to 2 mM. Catalyzes the oxidation of hypoxanthine to xanthine. The pH activity profile of the enzyme exhibited a peak at 7.5 [Fig. 1(A), inset] that was but slightly shifted to pH 7.3 in the presence of Cu2+ [Fig. 1(A)]; thus all assays were performed at pH 7.5. Data were obtained after XO and Cu2+ were pre-incubated for 5 min (filled circle), 10 min (open circle), 20 min (▾), and 30 min (triangle). It is thus important to investigate the effect of copper on the structure and activity of individual enzymes. For kinetics studies, the final enzyme concentration in the assay was 6 nM, unless otherwise specified. However, the information gathered by various groups on the enzyme structure [8,13,14] allowed us to make some predictions regarding plausible binding sites for Cu2+. Stern–Volmer plot and fluorescence emission spectra  (A) Stern–Volmer plot describing tryptophan quenching of XO by Cu2+; the plot exhibits upward curvature at higher Cu2+ concentrations. 26. Relative orientations of the reactive centers in bovine milk XO and His residues potentially involved in Cu2+binding  Residues important in substrate binding and reaction catalysis are also indicated and labeled in italics characters. To determine the precise location of the Cu2+ binding sites in XO would require X-ray crystallography of the metal–enzyme complex. The random coil fraction remained essentially unchanged except that it increased by 5–8% with 2 mM Cu2+ as the pre-incubation time increased to 30 min [Fig. 10(F)]. CD spectra of XO and XO in the presence of various Cu2+ concentrations were also recorded in the visible region, from 350 to 700 nm (Fig. 11). where F0 is the integrated area of the fluorescence spectrum of the sample before quenching, F is the integrated area of the fluorescence spectrum of the sample after quenching, and [Q] is the concentration of quencher. Allopurinol was the first line drug in the The labels for the most exposed His residues are underlined. Xanthine oxidase (XO, sometimes ' XAO ') is a form of xanthine oxidoreductase, a type of enzyme that generates reactive oxygen species. In this condition, the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) … © The Author 2009. In parallel with the alterations in enzymatic activity that were time- as well as Cu2+ concentration-dependent, the apparent dissociation constants thus calculated decreased with increasing pre-incubation time. The dotted line represents the control value for the enzyme in the absence of Cu2+. The catalytic cycle is completed by electron transfer from molybdenum to the [Fe2–S2] clusters and then to the flavin, where the electrons are donated to an acceptor such as O2 [13,14]. Measurements were done using a 1-mm light path cell for far-UV studies and a 1-cm light path cell for visible studies. As the pre-incubation time between XO and Cu2+ increased, so did the β-sheet fraction; after 30-min pre-incubation, there was a 30% increase in β-sheet with Cu2+ 1 µM and a 49% increase with 2 mM Cu2+ [Fig. 10(D)]. Indeed, we showed that this enzyme is involved in free radical production associated with exercise in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease . Iron is both an essential nutrient and a potential toxicant to cells; as such, it requires a highly sophisticated and complex set of regulatory approaches to meet the demands of cells as well as prevent excess accumulation. The excitation wavelength was 295 nm and the emission spectra of XO and XO in the presence of different [Cu2+] (0.005–2 mM) were recorded between 310 and 500 nm; a single peak at 405 nm, attributable to the Tryp residues in the protein, was detectable (inset). Reference Bonini MG. Production of the carbonate radical anion during xanthine oxidase turnover in the presence of … Pre-incubation of the enzyme with the metal for 20 and 30 min (open symbols) led to a steady decrease in catalytic efficiency as Cu2+ concentrations went from 0.5 to 700 µM (−6.3 ≤ log ≤ −3.2) and to a sharp decrease in catalytic efficiency when Cu2+ concentration increased from 700 to 1500 µM (−3.2 ≤ log ≤ −2.8), with a slope steeper than that observed for 0-, 5-, and 10-min pre-incubation. Absorption spectra obtained after 5 min incubation of XO with 0.05–2 mM Cu2+ are shown in Fig. 3(B). In parallel with the steady-state kinetics findings that 0.7 mM Cu2+ marked the onset for drastic inhibition of the enzymatic activity, and the same critical metal concentration marked the change in apparent dissociation constant for the metal–enzyme complex. Determination of the apparent dissociation constant of the metal–enzyme complex, based on the absorbance changes observed for the molybdenum center and for the FAD center, revealed two constants (Kd1 and Kd2) in each case, indicating the existence of sites with lower affinity for Cu2+ that would be filled only after the metal concentration reached the critical value of 0.7 mM. The native enzyme exhibited a peak at 432 nm, one at 450 nm and a trough at 550 nm. All plots were quite similar and could be decomposed into two parts (separated by the arrows in Fig. 7), the first corresponding to Cu2+ concentrations ranging from 0.05 to 0.7 mM with little absorption change < 0.5 mM Cu2+ and the second, sigmoid, corresponding to 0.7 mM ≤ [Cu2+] ≤ 2 mM. Aliquots of the pre-incubated enzyme and metal were placed in a 1-ml reaction mixture of 0.1 M buffer, pH 7.5 and 4–11 µM xanthine; the final enzyme concentration was 6 nM. Complex metalloprotein that catalyzes oxidative hydroxylation of a variety of aromatic heterocycles and simple aldehydes. (B) Residual enzymatic activity at optimal pH: XO (6 nM) was pre-incubated with Cu2+ (0.0005, 0.001, 0.005, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.2, 1.5, and 2 mM) in 0.1 M buffer, pH 7.5, respectively, for 0 min. As previously suggested, this transient activity stimulation could be due to a stabilization of the enzyme in its optimal conformation. For both pre-incubation times, the value of Vmax decreased while that of Km increased with increasing metal concentration; the effect of the metal was exacerbated with prolonged pre-incubation. These values confirmed that the binding observed for lower Cu2+ concentrations was non-cooperative and that the binding observed at higher Cu2+ concentrations was cooperative. XO has long been known to be present in bovine milk which remains a main source for purified preparations of the enzyme. R. Hille (2005) Molybdenum-containing hydroxylases. The plots shown in Fig. 5(A) were obtained for the changes in absorption at 350 nm. No activity was detectable in the presence of 2000 µM Cu2+, regardless of the pre-incubation time. In this study, compounds Cu(hmy … Xanthine oxidase (XO), a key enzyme in purine metabolism, produces reactive oxygen species causing vascular injuries and chronic heart failure. Xanthine Oxidase Assay Buffer,just prior to use. Also, it helps the liver break down alcohol and some drugs, such as those used in cancer therapy ( 5 , 6 , 7 ). (filled circle) Control; (open circle) 0.001 mM Cu2+; (inverted triangle) 0.1 mM Cu2+; (triangle) 0.5 mM Cu2+; (open square) 1 mM Cu2+. XO (8 nM) was pre-incubated with Cu2+ (0.001, 0.1, 0.5, and 1 mM) in 0.1 M citrate-phosphate-borate buffer at various pHs (6.0–9.0), for 5 min at room temperature (∼22–25°C) before assaying for enzymatic activity. Catalyzes the oxidation of xanthine to uric acid. This chapter focuses on xanthine oxidase (XOD), which is a metal-flavoprotein containing FAD, molybdenum and iron in the ratio of 2:2:8. The enzyme xanthine oxidase (XOD) catal yzes the oxidation of hypoxanthine and xanthine to uric acid, which has a pivotal role in gout [29] . The UV/visible electronic absorption spectrum of the enzyme includes contributions from each reactive center with the iron–sulfur centers exhibiting maxima at 420, 470, and 550 nm, the flavin exhibiting a maximum at 450 nm, and the molybdenum co-factor exhibiting absorption at 350 nm [14,17–19]. This work was supported in part by the J. and E. Research Foundation, Tehran, Iran. Similar plots were obtained after 30-min pre-incubation of the enzyme with increasing metal concentrations. The assay was then started by adding xanthine as described above. The h coefficient, calculated from the plot of log [ΔA270/(ΔAmax−ΔA277)] vs. log [Cu2+], was equal to 1.14 ± 0.1 after 5-min pre-incubation and to 0.8 ± 0.05 after 30-min pre-incubation for the lower Cu2+ concentrations range, and it was equal to 3.25 ± 0.15 for Cu2+ concentrations ranging from 0.7 to 2 mM, regardless of the pre-incubation time. Results were the average of at least three separate experiments. 1/[Cu2+], giving apparent dissociation constants Kd1(filled line) and Kd2(dotted line), after pre-incubation of XO with Cu2+for different time  Kd1 was found for [Cu2+] 0.05–0.7 mM (points on the graphs correspond to 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.7 mM Cu2+) and Kd2 was found for [Cu2+] 0.7–2 mM (points on the graph correspond to 0.7, 0.9, 1.1, 1.3, 1.5, 1.75, 2 mM Cu2+). A sufficient supply is essential for the functioning of many biochemical processes, including electron transfer reactions, gene regulation, binding and transport of oxygen, and regulation of cell growth and … Cu2+-induced variations in XO catalytic efficiency are illustrated in Fig. 2. For (A) and (B), data were obtained after XO and Cu2+ were pre-incubated for 5 min (filled circle), 10 min (open circle), 20 min (▾), and 30 min (triangle). The aim of the study is to distinguish a possible systemic and local origin of ROS through the measurement of xanthine oxidase (XO) activity in urine and plasma, along with the determination of the oxidative changes in lipids and proteins. This confirmed that the binding around the Fe/S centers was cooperative and it suggested that two or three Cu2+ would bind. Published by ABBS Editorial Office in association with Oxford University Press on behalf of the Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. A single value for Kd (359 ± 10 mM after 5-min pre-incubation) was found with the absorbance changes recorded at 550 nm. The red-shift was progressive and went from 6 nm at 0.7 mM Cu2+ to as much as 28 nm at 2 mM Cu2+. Inverse plots obtained after 20-min pre-incubation of XO and Cu2+ at different metal concentrations are shown in Fig. 1(D). For Cu2+ concentrations that were above 0.7 mM (0.9–2 mM), the emission at 350 nm was quenched as well, and the emission maxima returned at 405 and 350 nm (Fig. 9). Conformational changes around each reactive center were assessed by monitoring changes to the respective electron absorption bands as well as to the visible portion of the circular dichroism (CD) spectrum of the enzyme. Here, copper's ability to alter XO activity and structure was investigated in vitro after pre-incubation of the enzyme with increasing Cu(2+) concentrations for various periods of time.

Alterations around the Fe/S centers, as revealed by absorbance decreases at 550 nm were not detectable until Cu2+ concentration reached 0.4 mM. The Stern–Volmer constant KSV, calculated from the plot according to Equation (4), was found equal to 960 M−1. These results suggested the existence of at least two attachment sites that exhibited different affinities for Cu2+ and that would differentially affect the various reacting centers of the enzyme. The enzyme concentration was 0.86 µM for far-UV studies and 4.7 µM for studies in the visible range. It catalyzes the oxidation of hypoxanthine to xanthine and that of xanthine to uric acid with concomitant reduction of molecular oxygen [8]. Mix well by pipetting, then aliquot and store at –20 °C. The Hill coefficient, h, calculated from the plot of log [ΔA450/(ΔAmax−ΔA450)] vs. log [Cu2+] was equal to 1.05 ± 0.1, regardless of Cu2+ concentration or pre-incubation time. The plots of ΔA277/ΔAmax vs. [Cu2+] shown in Fig. 7, corresponded each to a given pre-incubation period from 5 to 30 min. The slopes decreased as the pre-incubation time increased and correspondingly the value of Kd1 and of Kd2 was, respectively, 104 and 442 mM after 5-min pre-incubation (A), 65 and 387 mM after 10-min pre-incubation (B), 40 and 324 mM after 20-min pre-incubation (C), 30 and 315 mM after 30-min pre-incubation (D). With prolonged pre-incubation, the α-helical content further diminished with a 16% reduction for 1 µM Cu2+ and up to a 56% reduction for 2 mM Cu2+ [Fig. 10(C)]. The electronic absorption spectrum of native XO shown in Fig. 3(A) exhibited essentially four maxima, respectively, at 277, 350, 450, and 550 nm, characteristic of the enzyme [14,17–19]. Plot of the ratio of ΔA550/ΔAmaxvs. Xanthine stock solutions (0.13 mM) were prepared by dissolving xanthine in 1 mM NaOH. The values found for the Hill coefficient pertaining to the absorbance changes at 277 nm indicated a number of independent sites at lower Cu2+ concentrations (0.05–0.7 mM) and a number of additional binding sites that were not independent of one another at higher Cu2+ concentrations (0.7–2 mM). Xanthine oxidase (bovine milk XO) and xanthine were obtained from Sigma Chemical Co. (St Louis, MO, USA). A similar phenomenon was seen in the study of the effect of Ni2+ on horseradish peroxidase activity [39]. Menkes Disease. Xanthine oxidase is an important source of free radicals in vivo. Activity assays were conducted as described above immediately after dialysis. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Xanthine oxidase is an iron-molybdenum flavoprotein, which is containing FLAVIN-ADENINE DINUCLEOTIDE that oxidizes hypoxanthine, some other purines and pterins, and aldehydes. A xanthine oxidase inhibitor is any substance that inhibits the activity of xanthine oxidase, an enzyme involved in purine metabolism.In humans, inhibition of xanthine oxidase reduces the production of uric acid, and several medications that inhibit xanthine oxidase are indicated for treatment of hyperuricemia and related … This last step results in the production of superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide, two reactive oxygen species that have been associated with the potential damaging role of the enzyme [8,11,12]. Although a number of specific intracellular copper-binding proteins have been identified, non-specific binding of the metal to proteins also occurs that will inevitably lead to structural and functional alterations of those proteins with variable consequences for cellular activities and survival [2]. The spectroscopic studies showed that Cu2+ formed a complex with XO that resulted in specific alterations around each reactive center along with alterations in the secondary and, eventually, tertiary structure of the enzyme. ΔAmax was evaluated from the intercept of the plot of 1/ΔA vs. 1/[Cu2+] by extrapolation for low-ligand concentration. Here, copper's ability to alter XO activity and structure was investigated in vitro after pre-incubation of the enzyme with increasing Cu2+ concentrations for various periods of time. After 5-min pre-incubation of the enzyme with the metal, increases in the α-helical content were no longer observed; instead decreases going from 8% for 1 µM Cu2+ to 44% for 2 mM Cu2+ were recorded. The value of the enzyme's apparent Vmax, on the other hand, decreased steadily as the metal concentration increased from 5 to 1500 µM; for a given Cu2+ concentration, the decrease in apparent Vmax intensified as the pre-incubation time went from 0 to 10 min (e.g. As shown in Figs. 5 and 6, the absorbance changes detectable at the lowest Cu2+ concentrations (0.05–0.3 mM) were those observed at 350 nm. In addition, copper participates in various processes including the insertion of molybdenum into molybdopterin [5]. The first part, hyperbolic, corresponded to Cu2+ concentrations ranging from 0.05 to 0.7 mM and the second, sigmoid, corresponded to Cu2+ concentrations ranging from 0.7 to 2 mM. Far-UV CD spectra taken immediately after addition of increasing concentrations of Cu2+ to XO and after 30-min pre-incubation of the enzyme with the metal, are shown in Fig. 10(A and B), respectively. Spectra were recorded after 5-min pre-incubation of XO with Cu2+. Figure 12 provides a schematic representation of the reactive centers with some His and Cys residues located near them along with the amino acids reported to be involved in the substrate binding and the reaction catalysis [8,13–15]. and was at least 10 times diluted in the solutions. The reaction was started by the addition of xanthine (final concentration 4–11 µM); the final volume of the reaction mixture was always 3 ml. Zinc salicylate reduces airway smooth muscle cells remodelling by blocking mTOR and activating p21, Copyright © 2020 Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, SIBS, CAS. The plots shown in Fig. 5(B) were obtained for the changes in absorption at 450 nm after various pre-incubation times. The metal ion essential for the activity of xanthine oxidase and xanthine dehydrogenase is: Molybdenum. The effect of Cu2+ on the XO-catalyzed oxidation of xanthine was investigated by following, at 295 nm and under steady-state conditions, the rate of formation of uric acid after pre-incubation of XO with increasing Cu2+ concentrations for various periods of time. Kinetics assays performed with lower (3 nM) or higher (8 nM) enzyme concentrations showed a 5% decrease in stimulation at lower enzyme concentrations and a 4% increase at higher enzyme concentrations, whereas the inhibition increased for lower enzyme concentrations and decreased for higher enzyme concentrations.
