3KAM: Hen Egg White Lysozyme Derivatized With Rhenium(I) Diaquatricarbonyl Cation
Chem. Commun. (Camb. ) (2010) 46 p.1203-1205
The reaction of Re(CO)(3)(H(2)O)(3)(+) with hen egg lysozyme in aqueous solution results in a single covalent adduct; single crystal X-ray diffraction shows that the rhenium tricarbonyl cation binds to His15 in two significantly populated rotamer conformations.
