Application

Butyl isocyanide was used to study the crystal structure of carbon monoxide dehydrogenases-II isolated from Carboxydothermus hydrogenoformans. It was used to probe the mechanism of NO activation of the hemoprotein soluble guanylate cyclase. .

Alkylisocyanide adducts of microsomal P450 exist in two interconvertible forms, each giving the Soret maximum around 430 or 455 nm. This is demonstrated with a rabbit liver P450 2B4. Resonance Raman spectra of the 430- and 455-nm forms were examined
