Abstract

From the reactions of heme-substituted hemoproteins and their heme-linked protonation, the following two possibilities are suggested. 1. There is a proton-dissociable amino acid residue in the vicinity to the sixth ligand of horseradish peroxidase. 2. Some of the functional differences between myoglobin and peroxidase can be explained in terms of the differences in the interaction of the distal base with the sixth ligand.
