Abstract/Summary While manganese has been successfully exploited as a spectroscopic probe of EPR silent centers (Zn, Ca, Mg) in metalloenzymes, it was only during the last decade that manganese-containing metalloenzymes were investigated in great detail. Indeed, in some biological systems it remains unclear whether iron and/or manganese is required for catalytic competency. Binuclear manganese enzymes are a small group of enzymes that catalyze a variety of chemical reactions and are involved in numerous metabolic functions. In this review the structural and biochemical properties of these enzymes are described. The contributions of electron paramagnetic resonance-related techniques to our understanding of the structure and reactivity of binuclear manganese enzymes are discussed and, where appropriate, supported by data obtained from complementary spectroscopic methods. This article is intended as a guide to illustrate the usefulness of electron paramagnetic resonancerelated techniques in the study of these enzymes.
