Ferredoxins are present in a wide range of organisms, from the primitive anaerobic bacteria to higher plants and animals, where they function in diverse electron transfer processes. They are relatively small proteins with molecular weights of 6000 to 12000, contain 2–8 Fe atoms and an equivalent amount of inorganic sulphur per molecule, and they transfer electrons at low redox potentials. Anaerobic bacteria, like the clostridia, contain 8 Fe ferredoxins with a peptide chain of 55 amino acid… CONTINUE READING
