An unusual non-haem diiron protein, reverse rubrerythrin (revRbr), is known to be massively upregulated in response to oxidative stress in the strictly anaerobic bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum. In the present study both in vivo and in vitro results demonstrate an H2O2 and O2 detoxification pathway in C. acetobutylicum involving revRbr, rubredoxin (Rd) and NADH : rubredoxin oxidoreductase (NROR). RevRbr exhibited both NADH peroxidase (NADH : H2O2 oxidoreductase) and NADH oxidase (NADH : O2… CONTINUE READING
