Autoreduction of Cucumis sativus plastocyanin and Pseudomonas aeruginosa azurin took place at alkaline pHs, having been accompanied by the decrease in the intensities of the charge transfer band, Cys-S- (pi)-->Cu(II) at 597 and 626 nm, and the Cu(II)-EPR signals with small AII values of 6.5 x 10(-3) and 5.3 x 10(-3) cm(-1) for plastocyanin and azurin, respectively. Further, an extra Cu(II)-EPR signal with a large AII value of 21 x 10(-3) cm(-1) also reversibly emerged with increasing pH. Plastocyanin and azurin are in an equilibrium of the three forms at alkaline pHs.
