A tetrairon(III) complex recognizing protein structures via a hydrolytic pathway

There might be significant differences in the rate and efficiency in the metal complex-mediated hydrolytic reactions of proteins belonging to the different structural patterns. The tetrairon(III) complex [Fe4(NTB)4 (μ2-O)2(μ4-Suc)] 6+, as a promoter in protein hydrolysis, is sensitive to α-helices in proteins, indicating that some metal complexes, as artificial proteolytic agents, could be used as a new hydrolytic probe of protein structures.
