Abstract

The binding of Mn2+ ions to ATP molecules has been studied by means of the fine-structure analysis of X-ray absorption spectra (EXAFS and XANES) at the K-edge of Mn using the synchrotron, radiation facility PULS in Frascati. The results obtained in both freeze-dried and liquid samples of aqueous solutions at room temperature of the Mn-ATP complex under diffrent values of pH and Mn:ATP ratio are reported and discussed. The Mn2+ ion appears to be octahedrally coordinated, the phosphate oxygen atoms being in the first co-ordination shell. Values of (2.15±0.05) Å and (3.4±0.05) Å, respectively, have been found for Mn-O and Mn-P distances. Theoretical considerations together with experimental results do not support the existence of a direct binding of the Mn to the N(7) atom of the adenine ring. The coordination numbers for the first and second shell are consistent with the formation of a Mn(ATP)2 complex in solution at pH=9 and Mn: ATP=1:10, while a Mn-ATP 1:1 complex is found at lower pH and higher Mn: ATP ratios.
