Abstract

Herein, the thiol pKa and standard redox potential of mycothiol, the major low molecular weight thiol cofactor in the actinomycetes, are reported. The measured standard redox potential reveals substantial discrepancies in one or more of the other previously measured intracellular parameters that are relevant to mycothiol redox biochemistry.
