Bacterial iron homeostasis.
TLDR
The expression of the iron homeostatic machinery is subject to iron-dependent global control ensuring that iron acquisition, storage and consumption are geared to iron availability and that intracellular levels of free iron do not reach toxic levels. Expand
Multiple bacteria encode metallothioneins and SmtA‐like zinc fingers
TLDR
These studies reveal first the existence of multiple bacterial metallothioneins, and second proteins with SmtA‐like lone zinc fingers, devoid of a cluster, and designated GatA. Expand
A metallothionein containing a zinc finger within a four-metal cluster protects a bacterium from zinc toxicity
TLDR
Structural proof for the existence of zinc fingers in prokaryotes is provided, and sequences related to the zinc finger motif can be identified in several bacterial genomes. Expand
Surplus Zinc Is Handled by Zym1 Metallothionein and Zhf Endoplasmic Reticulum Transporter in Schizosaccharomyces pombe *
TLDR
The targeted disruption of Zym1 prevented growth on low zinc medium and caused hypersensitivity to elevated zinc/cobalt but resistance to cadmium, whereas zym1 overexpression substantially rescued zinc hypersensitivity of zhf− cells. Expand
SYNTHESIS, STRUCTURE, SPECTROSCOPY, AND REACTIVITY OF A METALLATHIABENZENE1
A rare example of a stable metallabenzene complex has been synthesized in three high-yield steps from (Cl)Ir(PEt3)3. In the first step, (Cl)Ir(PEt3)3 is treated with potassiumExpand
