    The key step in the reaction mechanism of multicopper oxidases (MCOs) -- the cleavage of the O--O bond in O2 -- has been investigated using combined quantum mechanical and molecular mechanical (QM/MM) methods. Our best estimate of the activation barrier is (delta)G = 60--65 kJ.mol-1, in good agreement with the experimental barrier of /~55 kJ.mol-1, which can be inferred from the experimental rate constant of k > 350 s-1. It has also been shown that the reaction involves protonation of the O2 moiety before bond cleavage. The proton likely comes from a nearby carboxylate residue which was recently suggested by the experiments.
