Ferredoxin from Methanosarcina barkeri: evidence for the presence of a three-iron center.
TLDR
The combined EPR and Mössbauer studies show that M. barkeri ferredoxin contains only [3Fe-3S] clusters, similar to Azotobacter vinelandii Fd and mitochondrial beef heart aconitase.
Desulfovibrio Gigas hydrogenase: redox properties of the nickel and iron-sulfur centers.
TLDR
Preliminary Mössbauer studies on Desulfovibrio gigas hydrogenase reveal the presence of a paramagnetic 3 Fe center and two 4 Fe centers, and additional information concerning the redox properties of these EPR active centers is obtained.
Characterization of the flavins and the iron-sulfur centers of glutamate synthase from Azospirillum brasilense by absorption, circular dichroism, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies.
TLDR
Electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopic studies on the oxidized and reduced forms of glutamate synthase demonstrated the presence of three distinct iron-sulfur centers per enzyme protomer, in agreement with the two-site model of the enzyme active center proposed on the basis of kinetic studies.
The iron-sulfur centers of the soluble [NiFeSe] hydrogenase, from Desulfovibrio baculatus (DSM 1743). EPR and Mössbauer characterization.
The soluble (cytoplasmic plus periplasmic) Ni/Fe-S/Se-containing hydrogenase from Desulfovibrio baculatus (DSM 1743) was purified from cells grown in an 57Fe-enriched medium, and its iron-sulfur
Three‐iron clusters in iron–sulfur proteins: An EPR study of the exchange interactions
A detailed discussion of the Mossbauer data on the three‐iron clusters in the iron–sulfur proteins from Azotobacter vinelandii and Desulfovibrio gigas [T. A. Kent, B. H. Huynh, and E. Munck, Proc.
Interconversion from 3Fe into 4Fe clusters in the presence of Desulfovibrio gigas cell extracts.
TLDR
Results, supported by the occurrence of easy chemical conversion of the 3Fe cluster of D. gigas ferredoxin into 4Fe structures, suggest that cluster conversion takes place in conditions close to the situation in vivo.

Iron-sulfur clusters in Azotobacter ferredoxin at 2.5 A resolution.
TLDR
X-ray crystallographic study of the ferredoxin-like protein (iron-sulfur protein III) from Azotobacter vinelandii has been extended to 2.5-A resolution and shows two distinctly different Fe-S clusters.
Interpretation of the Mössbauer spectra of the four-iron ferredoxin from Bacillus stearothermophilus.
TLDR
The Mössbauer spectra of both oxidized and reduced ferredoxin from Bacillus stearothermophilus have been analysed using computer fits to theoretical spectra obtained from a spin Hamiltonian, interpreted in terms of a model for the active centre which is consistent with its electronic and magnetic properties in both redox states.
A SIMPLE SERUM IRON METHOD USING THE NEW SENSITIVE CHROMOGEN TRIPYRIDYL-S-TRIAZINE.
TLDR
A simple, specific and reproducible serum iron method is described using the recently synthesized and highly sensitive chromogen, tripyridyl-S-triazine, which agrees with most of those in the literature which has been reviewed.
