Proteins containing heme, iron(protoporphyrin IX) and its variants, continue to be one of the most-studied classes of biomolecules due to their diverse range of biological functions. The literature is abundant with reports of structural and functional characterization of individual heme proteins which demonstrate that heme protein reduction potential(More)
During translation, initiation factor 3 (IF3) binds to the small (30S) ribosomal subunit and regulates the fidelity with which the initiator tRNA and mRNA start codon substrates are selected into the 30S initiation complex (30S IC). The molecular mechanism through which IF3 promotes the recognition and signaling of correct substrate selection, however,(More)
