Abstract
We have demonstrated that free metal ions such as Zn(II) can be determined by fuorescence anisotropy (polarization) using an apometalloenzyme, carbonic anhydrase II, and a fluorescent aryl sulfonamide inhibitor of the enzyme whose affinity for the enzyme is metal-dependent. We felt that attaching the fluorescent aryl sulfonamide to the protein would provide a similar response, while avoiding problems of disproportionation of the inhibitor and protein. In fact a tethered aryl sulfonamide ABD-T gave very good results: Zn(II) and Cu(II) at picomolar levels and Co(II), Cd(II), and Ni(II) at nanomolar levels can all be determined by changes in fluorescence intensity, anisotropy, and lifetime using visible excitation sources. Implications of these results are discussed.
