RuvBL1 (RuvB-like 1) and its homolog RuvBL2 are evolutionarily highly conserved AAA(+) ATPases essential for many cellular activities. They play an important role in chromatin remodeling, transcriptional regulation and DNA damage repair. RuvBL1 and RuvBL2 are overexpressed in different types of cancer and interact with major oncogenic factors, such as(More)
Superoxide reductases (SORs) are the most recent oxygen-detoxification system to be identified in anaerobic and microaerobic bacteria and archaea. SORs are metalloproteins that are characterized by their possession of a catalytic nonhaem iron centre in the ferrous form coordinated by four histidine ligands and one cysteine ligand. Ignicoccus hospitalis, a(More)
Superoxide reductases (SORs) are metalloproteins which constitute the most recently identified oxygen-detoxification system in anaerobic and microaerobic bacteria and archaea. SORs are involved in scavenging superoxide radicals from the cell by catalyzing the reduction of superoxide ({\rm O}_{2};{\bullet -}) to hydrogen peroxide and are characterized by a(More)
Superoxide reductase (SOR), which is commonly found in prokaryotic organisms, affords protection from oxidative stress by reducing the superoxide anion to hydrogen peroxide. The reaction is catalyzed at the iron centre, which is highly conserved among the prokaryotic SORs structurally characterized to date. Reported here is the first structure of an SOR(More)
