A microsecond-resolved absorption spectrometer was developed to investigate the elementary steps in hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) activation reaction of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) at ambient temperature. The kinetic absorption spectra of HRP upon the mixing with various concentrations of H2O2 (0.5-3 mM) were monitored in the time range from 50 to 300 μs. The time-resolved spectra in the Soret region possessed isosbestic points that were close to those between the resting state and compound I. The kinetic changes in the Soret absorbance could be well fitted by a single exponential function. Accordingly, no distinct spectrum of the putative intermediate between the resting state and compound I was identified. These results were consistent with the proposal that the O-O bond activation in heme peroxidases is promoted by the imidazolium form of the distal histidine that exists only transiently. It was estimated that the rate constant for the breakage of the O-O bond in H2O2 by HRP is significantly faster than 1 × 104 s-1.
