The structure of iron-sulfur proteins.

Author information

Lehrstuhl für Struktur und Chemie der Biopolymere, Universität Bayreuth, Germany.


Ferredoxins are a group of iron-sulfur proteins for which a wealth of structural and mutational data have recently become available. Previously unknown structures of ferredoxins which are adapted to halophilic, acidophilic or hyperthermophilic environments and new cysteine patterns for cluster ligation and non-cysteine cluster ligation have been described. Site-directed mutagenesis experiments have given insight into factors that influence the geometry, stability, redox potential, electronic properties and electron-transfer reactivity of iron-sulfur clusters.
