The binding of a series of alkyl aryl sulfides to chloroperoxidase (CPO) and horseradish peroxidase (HRP) has been investigated by optical difference spectroscopy, circular dichroism, paramagnetic NMR spectroscopy, and NMR relaxation measurements. The data are consistent with binding of the sulfides in the distal side of the heme pocket with CPO and near the heme edge with HRP. A linear correlation between the binding constants of para-substituted sulfides to CPO and the Taft sigma(I) parameter suggests that these substrates act as donors in donor-acceptor complexes involving some residue of the protein chain. Spectral studies during turnover show that high enantioselectivity in the CPO-catalyzed oxidation of sulfides results from a reaction pathway that does not involve the accumulation of compound II enzyme intermediate.
