Nα-Acetylated microperoxidase-8 (Ac-MP-8) is a water soluble, ferric heme model for peroxidases. We report here that Ac-MP-8 catalyzes catalase-type reaction in addition to peroxidase-type and cytochrome P450-type reactions. The catalase activity of Ac-MP-8 was determined by the Clark oxygen electrode, which measures the production of oxygen in solution. The Km and kcat of the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) catalyzed by Ac-MP-8 are 40.9 mM and 4.1 per s, respectively. The specificity constant (kcat/Km) of Ac-MP-8 in catalase-type reaction of H2O2 is 100.2,/M/S, which is 5- to 12- and 50- to 100-fold less than those of MPs in cytochrome P450-type reaction of aniline/H2O2 and peroxidase-type reaction of o-methoxyphenol/H2O2, respectively. These results indicate that Ac-MP-8 can catalyze three different types of reactions, and the relative catalytic specificities of Ac-MP-8 with a histidyl ligand exhibit the following orders: peroxidase-type > cytochrome P450-type > catalase-type reactions. Comparisons of the enzyme activities of Ac-MP-8 suggest that the fifth ligands of hemoproteins influence the ratio of the three types of reactions.
