Influence of the protein medium on the electronic state and electron transfer in metalloproteins

  • G. N. Chuev


On the basis of a semicontinuum method, considering the influence of the heme structure and the polarization of the protein macromolecule, the energy and wave functions of the electron on the active site of cyt C were calculated for the stype ground and excited states. The reorganization energy, matrical element, and rate of electron transfer in the self-exchange reaction of cyt C were calculated. The results are in satisfactory agreement with the experimental data.
