Reaction of ∝-chymotrypsin with various aryl azido acylimidazoles leads to covalent attachment of the aryl azide photoaffinity label. Photolysis of the polycrystalline enzyme or a frozen solution of the enzyme at 77K leads to intense EPR signals of the triplet nitrenes. The position of the EPR resonance fields and the decay kinetics can be interpreted in terms of binding of the label within or outside the binding pocket of the enzyme.
