Bovine serum albumin (BSA) added to the reaction medium for the oxidative demethylation of 4-methoxyanisole and its "di-CD3" isotopomer ([d6]methoxyanisole), when catalyzed by liver microsomes from untreated rats, decreased the Km values and increased the V(max)/Km (= V/K) values. The...

The effect of substituents on the oxidation potential for the one-electron reaction of 1,4-dimethoxybenzene was understood with a theoretical calculation based on density functional theory (DFT) at the level of B3LYP/6-311+G(d). It is found that the oxidation potential for the...

The stabilities of the cation radicals of veratryl alcohol, 3,4-dimethoxytoluene and 1,4-dimethoxybenzene were compared by monitoring the formation of dimeric products during the oxidation of these substrates by lignin peroxidase (LiP). LiP oxidized veratryl alcohol to generate veratraldehyde as the...
