In this study we characterize two novel chloroplast SufE-like proteins from Arabidopsis thaliana. Other SufE-like proteins, including the previously described A. thaliana CpSufE, participate in sulfur mobilization for Fe-S biosynthesis through activation of cysteine desulfurization by NifS-like proteins. In addition to CpSufE, the Arabidopsis genome encodes two other proteins with SufE domains, SufE2 and SufE3. SufE2 has plastid targeting information. Purified recombinant SufE2 could activate… CONTINUE READING
