Iron deposition in the unusual 12-subunit ferritin from thebacterium Listeria innocua proceeds in three phases: a rapidfirst phase in which Fe(2+) binds to the apoprotein, P(Z) of charge Z, according to the postulatedreaction 2Fe(2+)+P(Z)-->[Fe(2)-P](Z+2)+2H(+), where[Fe(2)-P](Z+2) represents adinuclear iron(II) complex formed at each of the 12 ferroxidase centresof the protein; a second phase corresponding to oxidation of thisputative complex, i.e. [Fe(2)-P](Z+2)+1/2 O(2)-->[Fe(2)O-P](Z)+2H… CONTINUE READING
