Electronic and Nonlinear Optical Properties of l-Histidine on Silver: A Theoretical and Experimental Approach
An investigation of the electrostatic interactions between histidine and silver have been analyzed using density functional theory (DFT). Variations in the structural parameters were identified to be significant at those atoms of histidine near the silver cluster. The shifting of frontier molecular orbitals, reduction in bandgap, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP), and overlap of natural bond orbitals (NBO) between silver and histidine have been theoretically calculated. The results confirm the redistribution of charges consequent to the process of adsorption. On the basis of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT), two peaks were generated at 301 and 409 nm in the simulated UV–vis spectrum. Theoretical vibrational Raman analysis of the investigated molecules strongly confirms the process of adsorption. Nonlinear optical (NLO) properties are predicted by theoretical studies and confirmed experimentally via open-aperture Z-scan. The adsorption of histidine on silver enhances the NLO parameter...

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... mehr
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... mehr
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... mehr
