The spectral and kinetic properties of the monodeprotonated form of the cationic 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-Nmethylpyridyl) porphyrin (H2TMPyP) in solution are studied. The experimental results obtained are interpreted based on the four-orbital Gouterman model. It is established that the monodeprotonated form HTMPyP− can be assigned to the D4h symmetry point group, and has spectral and photophysical characteristics similar to the characteristics of the fluorescent metal complexes of H2TMPyP with relatively low electronegativity of the chelated metal ion. It is hypothesized that formation of the monodeprotonated form HTMPyP− is accompanied by a decrease in the oxidation potential of the porphyrin molecule.

    Myosin II molecules assemble into filaments through their C-terminal rod region, and are responsible for several cellular motile activities. Three isoforms of nonmuscle myosin II (IIA, IIB and IIC) are expressed in mammalian cells. However, little is known regarding the isoform composition in...
